Port's Café is crazy good food in the middle of nowhere (says the Californian). I really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere is definitely eclectic with art, calming lighting and multi-terraced dining areas. I'm sure this place is swamped in high-season, but in the middle of April it was still busy. The food and service are excellent.

This restaurant has its owners on sight nearly all of the time. They really care about the quality of the food and the service. The menu has a variety of items meeting every diner's taste. However, the specials offered each night will blow you away. They normally have entrees that you cannot find anywhere else. The food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. The service is excellent as well. We always feel welcomed when we arrive. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed!

We were looking for a late night dinner spot for our west coast daughter and our future son-in-law, who had just arrived for their wedding. We found a terrific gourmet gem in Ports. Our waiter, Samuel, was so enthusiastic, we loved hearing his descriptions of the menu items. He even treated our wedding couple to a glass of fine port and ice wine. Samuel really enhanced our experience. Everything from our wines to our desserts was wonderful, fresh, and perfectly prepared. It was the best introduction to our Finger Lakes' wedding weekend.

Great service. Waitress had great input to deciding on what to have. The "Specials" list was more than the menu had to offer. Great selection. The winter night salad was phenomenal l. The filet was the most tenders I have ever had in a restaurant with maple butter. Great atmosphere and absolutely delicious. Daily specials are not a disappointment. Reservations are a must!!

My husband and I ate here the first night of two in Geneva. We started to order off the menu when our server, Eric, asked if we'd been to Port before. When we said no, Eric took the menu and told us we had to order off the daily special menu. And that consisted of probably a dozen items (and the regular menu was large so this chef really has his work cut out for him!).

We ordered the baked Brie and strawberry salad for appetizers, duck with cherry glaze, mahi mahi with pineapple salsa, and chocolate mousse for dessert (along with a bottle of Fox Run Riesling).

The meal was exquisite. Everything kept getting better and better. The service was fantastic.

When we ate at Nonna's on Saturday night we regretted not going back to Ports.
