My husband and I celebrated out 33rd wedding anniversary this week at Caroline’s Restaurant in the Glen Iris Inn at Letchworth State Park in New York. Since we were staying overnight at the Inn, it made sense for us to have a relaxing supper at the Inn’s restaurant for our celebration. We had considered driving into Mt. Morris or Geneseo NY to have supper, but decided that it would be better for us to stay at the Inn and save the driving time. That way, we could enjoy a bottle of wine with our dinner, and not have to worry about driving.
Although the dinner was somewhat pricey [$85 for two, including wine, taxes. and tip], w were glad we stayed at the Inn for our celebration dinner. Both of us enjoyed our dinners. I had the small prime rib, which was cooked medium. My dinner included a baked potato, a green salad, buns, and cooked beets. The prime rib was very tender, and the meal was filling. My husband had the St. Helena Chicken…a grilled chicken breast mixed with prosciutto ham, snow peas, fresh basil, parmesan, herb garlic butter, and bow-tie pasta. Buns and a salad were included.
Our only complaint was with the wine. Trying to control costs—as the prices for wine seemed on the high side—we ordered a Bully Hill Spring White Niagara for $20. Bad choice! It tasted very much like sweet grape juice, and not at all like wine. It was much too sweet. However, we didn’t complain to our server, as we know we just picked the cheapest wine on the list! But I don't know why the restaurant has such a terrible wine on the wine list!
The atmosphere in the restaurant was relaxing, the meal was very good, and the service was wonderful. Our server was attentive, and she was very polite. If you’re staying at the Glen Iris Inn, you won’t be disappointed if you have supper at Caroline’s Restaurant in the Inn.
