Delicious food and friendly service
My husband and I were dining here at Fontana Grill for our 5 year anniversary and our experience was exceptional! We were seated at a cozy table by the fireplace which was just perfect! Our server was very attentive and very friendly. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection and he enjoyed every bite! I ordered the frenched chicken breast and it was worth the wait, it was juicy, tender and delicious! The gentleman playing the piano added a nice touch to the ambiance as well. We will definitely be coming back in the future!

Delicious food and warm ambiance
On Saturday night you have a choice of ordering from the menu or partaking in the large buffet. Our group did both. The buffet has a selection of warm or cold crab legs with drawn butter (I started with this), succulent prime rib with au jus sauce, a large and fresh salad bar, a baked potato bar with fun toppings and an assortment of other main and side dishes. The dessert table gives you the opportunity to try different pies (chocolate peanut butter pie was to die for) and cakes and other goodies. The wine list is a good size with a nice selection. There is a live piano player who is very talented. There were a few kids there, so he even played a few songs from kids movies (which adults love, too). It was clean and friendly staff.

Disabled Kid Family
We had a little trouble getting our wheelchair into the restaurant. But that was only because the main elevator quit working. So we had to get through the freight elevator in the kitchen. Not the first time we've had this issue (even happened at a glamorous downtown hotel) and they were all very nice about it. Then they sat us right by the piano/trumpet player. That would not work with our daughter who started to cry because it was so loud. They were okay about relocating us to a less loud place.
The food was surprisingly good for a brunch and the service was pretty good all around. The place is very beautiful and we all really enjoyed ourselves!

wonderful geneva lake dining
The Fontana Grill offered many dining selections at a reasonable price. Great restaurant to bring the family or spend a quiet, romantic evening. Look forward to returning and will try the weekend buffet.

Our new fav
The atmosphere is relaxing and romantic, with enjoyable live music in the background. The food was delicious and the grounds are beautiful to stroll around after dinner. Definitely a gem to which we will return.

post wedding breakfast
I thoroughly enjoyed treating familiy members to breakfast after our daughter Julia's wedding on August 2 at the Gazebo at the Abbey outside. It was wonderful! Cindy C

I had a wonderful experience dining at this restaurant! It was so easy to make a reservation for my party and everyone working there was extremely welcoming. Not only was the food fantastic, but the service was amazing. We did not have to wait long for our food and it was great having live entertainment during our meal. The environment was relaxing, yet fun at the same time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

This is a quiet and romantic
This is a quiet and romantic place for dinner. This is our 2nd time there and certainly not our last. We went for the Prime Rib Buffet offered on Saturday's. Service was amazing, food was very good, with a large selection of main entrees and side dishes. The desert bar had a wide variety of items. There was also a menu available if you did not want to eat off the buffet. Last visit we also had the Sunday Brunch which I liked more than the dinner buffet. Just an all around awesome experience.

Food was very good. Ambiance
Food was very good. Ambiance was not great due to people walking by going through the restaurant by our table to other parts of the resort. Host was very accommodating to our needs.

Dinner with a view
We had dinner and brunch while taking in the beautiful view f the trees and water. During dinner there was wonderful piano playing. It was relaxing and we did not feel rushed.

Absolutely love this restaurant at the Abbey. We have dined here for many years and have always enjoyed it. Great food - nice buffet, although I prefer to order off the menu at dinner time, so many choices, but all great. Very nice friendly staff, always make you feel like your visiting family. Always a pleasant experience, whether your having a romantic dinner or dining with family - there's something for everyone!
