“Never got our dinner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We entered the restaurant at 6 pm, were seated at 6:20 pm in the dining room. We had to wait 10 mins to place our order. Didn't see much of our waitress. Waited for 1 hour and never got our food! Three tables around us were having their food boxed and were leaving. Left money on table for app and drinks. Oh, found the waitress as we were leaving, she was standing outside having a SMOKE!!!!!

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We haven't been to the Sunset for a few years; it was always basically ok, occasionally too crowded with over-taxed wait-staff, with good but not surprising food. We went for an early Sunday dinner so the place was almost empty except for an event in the room for receptions/parties. The wine list is basic with an ok selection of Finger Lakes wines very reasonably priced by the bottle. The soup of the day, a "Florentine tomato w spinach" was hearty and delicious. The salads were fresh and tasty with baby peas. My prime rib was tender, nicely seasoned and rare as ordered. The side of angel hair w oil and garlic was swimming in garlicky oil--just the way I like it. My husband had the meat lasagna which was loaded with cheese and very good. Overall, the meal was very good; not haute cuisine but quite adequate with leftovers to take home. It has a comfortable bar (with huge TV) as well as a nice dining room with back-lit stained glass. Unfortunately the restaurant still smells from the cigarette smoke from years ago, probably imbedded in every piece of furniture and drapery as well as deep in the A/C units. They need to make the place smell like great tomato sauce, not old smoke. That said, I'd still suggest it as a good alternative to the pricier restaurants when you want a good meal w/o spending a fortune. It goes w/o saying that it's definitely much better than any of the chains.

“Good basic fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Excellent service! We ordered from the tavern menu. I had the hot turkey sandwich, and it's been a very long time since I've had one as good as this. Nice to get away from the chain restaurants that seem to dominate.

Thank Julie A
