We arrived in Geneva needing gas for the car. Realizing we didn't have a reservation, we wondered if we could sneak an early dinner in on what we knew was going to be a busy restaurant night. My partner pumped the gas and I tripadvisor searched for a place on my phone. We were hoping for a bistro type place and quickly called and got a bar table in the window. Score!! We drove the couple blocks and parked on the street out in front. We entered Halsey's to find a lovely bar room where our table was a nice hightop in front of huge windows overlooking the street. Quite a lovely table and the windows were well insulated (which was a bonus on the frigidly windy cold night). The waitress came promptly and brought the large two sided sheet menu and a page of specials. It was immediately apparent that they push their drinks which frankly are incredibly overpriced (especially considering you are sitting right in the heart of NYS wine country!!) as the entire one side of the menu was only bar drinks. I ordered a $8 glass of pinot noir and my partner ordered a $8.50 bottle of beer. We found the menu very, very limited with very few choices. We chose a wood fired meatballs to begin, the salmon salad to share and a margherita pizza. We were told the meatballs take 20 minutes to come out. They brought the salad first which was appreciated. The salmon over this salad was remarkably delicious. It was moist and delicious served over spinach and romaine with sliced apples, slivered almonds, capers, some blue cheese that my partner loved and dressed just enough to moisten it but not overwhelm the entire goodness. Awesome salad. The meatballs came out and were INCREDIBLE!! Just really tasty for a restaurant meatball. I think there was a hint of nutmeg in them with a good consistency, served in a oven dish with delectable red sauce and melted cheese over the top. Very nice appetizer! The pizza came out shortly after that and we were just so disappointed with it. The had halved cherry tomatoes on top of it. Who puts CHERRY TOMATOES on the pizza? They were slippery and squishy little slouching halve sitting on the pie. Think, like what would happen to a cherry tomato on a shishkabob. Icky! There was not very much fresh mozzarella on it and the worst part was the crust was VERY floury and white and powdery with flour. It was pasty in your mouth. We only each ate one piece. All in all, it ruined the whole experience. The dinner entrees are in the $30 range and weird. If you do salmon so incredibly well on the salad, why on earth don't you offer a salmon entree?? If you do meatballs that are so luscious, why are you not offering a pasta entree with these delicious treasures?? I just feel the menu was a disappointment in I don't see how burgers, filet mignon and alligator can make your menu? They obviously have someone that can really prepare good food. Why be so limited? It seems the identity is clouded. If this were truly a fancy, highbrow food restaurant that needs to charge $8 for a 2 1/2 ounce glass of wine served in an overly big goblet, then maybe you should have the waitresses wear something much fancier than dingy old faded blue jeans!
