“one of the best of "Finger Lakes"”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Forget the menu, server (bryan) will explain all the "specials"; freshley prepared, cooked to order. Reservations are sometimes difficult to get, but if you do, you're a winner. Reasonably priced local wines with a few others included. Nice non formal dining with a lake view.

“At least six or seven circles worthy”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

This place deserves more than the highest circle rating of five. One of the best dining experiences I have ever experienced. The prices were very reasonable as well. Do not miss this restaurant if you are nearby......even if you're not nearby. Everything we ordered was out of this world.

“Sure thing.”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Trip advisor rankings haven't let me down yet. Never been to Geneva before, I selected the Port's Cafe based on the rankings. It turned out to be a great choice and you won't be disappointed. The building is nothing to look at, and if you didn't know the restaurant's reputation you'd likely drive on by. But don't, the food is excellent, the wait staff both knowledgeable and attentive and you'll find there is something for everyone listed on the daily specials. Can't wait to go back. Make sure you reserve in advance, I called a week ahead and I'm glad I did, they were turning people away at the door and yet honored our reservations right on time All in all a great dinner out.
