Diner Reviews
  • "Our server, while friendly, didn't seem to really want to take care of us. Our appetizer came before our drink, which was wine, and we had to call our server over for everything because she rushed to and from our table so fast. We ordered the calamari, which was not really what we expected based on the the menu description, and some of the salad fell on the table, our server literally picked it up and put it back on the plate. I would never do that as a server, and was disappointed that it happened."

  • "We dined here after a long day out on the lake. It was a wonderful view and the service was great. The food for the price was just ok. There are some interesting and eclectic menu items but all of our party's choices fell a little flat. It wasn't bad, but nothing really excited us. The dessert may have been the best part of the meal. The dining room is a bit dated and dark, and there was a layer of dust on the blinds on the windows. The place could use a good cleaning and a facelift. Our server was attentive and very friendly. All in all if you want a nice place to dine with a fabulous view of the beautiful lake this is not a bad choice. Just don't expect the best meal you have ever had."

  • "We arrived early and changed the time of our reservation without a problem. Ordered wine and champayne. The luncheon items on the menu where mundane luncheon items but the specials were exactly that - special."

  • "1st the view of Lake Geneva is beautiful and never gets old, and while near the windows is best any seat in the house affords one a spectacular view. Food and presentation is top notch. Service can seem slow because one can get into almost a hipnotic state that you forget about time."

  • "Our waitress was outstanding. She asked us if we would like a window seat instead of the table we were at, because one of her tables were just leaving. We order a cocktail from her waited about 3 minutes and she transferred us to a great table. She was an outstanding waitress."

  • "DINNER: Filet was ordered medium rare, receive well done. Ok, let's try it again. This time I received a rare ribeye. Really? People can't tell the difference? Lamb shank was good, not great, just good. Service was good, not great. Ambience was like the walking dead...zzzzzzz. Feels like where the silver tops good for over priced food. Sorry. BREAKFAST: Totally different story (except still feels like the walking dead). Very limited menu but it works. Service was excellent (Andrea), food was beautifully prepared, tasty (Eggs Benefit) and well worth the price! Continental breakfast added some fresh fruit and juice to the meal. Bottom line: Find somewhere else for dinner but don't miss the breakfast."

  • "Great brunch with friends - drove up from St. Charles , Il - arrived earlier than our reservation time, but were seated right away and by window as I had requested if available. Good wait staff - good food - were not hurried and able to sit and enjoy the view. Am sure we will be back."

  • "I hate to write this review because The Grandview restaurant is so wonderful that I'm afraid I might start a stampede and have to deal with huge crowds when we go there to dine. I'll just have to take the chance. On this lovely early afternoon at the end of May, the weather was a perfect 75. Lunch on the attractive patio overlooking Geneva Lake was a delightful experience. The service, ambiance, food could not have been better. The filet sliders with sweet potato fries were excellent and my husband enjoyed the tournedos of beef entree. It was so pleasant there on the patio--the beauty and serenity--we wished we could have stayed there all afternoon."

  • "I was surprised at how much we enjoyed Grandview Restaurant for a Sunday evening dinner over Memorial Day weekend. The food was so delicious (rainbow trout and lamb chops, apple pie and chocolate gelato) and the sunset was almost spiritual. I had a very nice glass of Malbec, and felt peaceful and relaxed throughout the dinner and afterwards. It was not as expensive as I expected ($100 plus tip, which is pricey for two, but it was worth it), we planned to splurge and were glad we did."

  • "We loved the restaurant atmosphere and the view. There was plenty to choose from on the menu, and the food tasted great!"

  • "We had a table at the window looking out over Lake Geneva. If the skies had cooperated, it would have been perfect for watching the sun set. After our complimentary glass of champagne, we enjoyed a leisure dinner. The rainbow trout was prepared with a butter with orange, lemon, and lime zest that was the best we have ever had. Our service was impeccable, wonderfully paced and attentive. "

  • "Wanted to try a new restaurant in Lake Geneva. Saw that the Geneva Inn had a great view. As soon as we walked in we should have turned around. Yes the view was incredible but the atmosphere inside the restaurant needs major improving. 80's green carpet, Victorian-esk floral decor, and lots of mirrors. The menu has very few choices with only one option for salad. I went with the fish fry and it was ok. Our waitress was very nice as well as all of the other staff. At one point on a Friday night there were more employees than guests. We left feeling sad and hoping the restaurant can make some major improvements and make it since it really could be a great restaurant with a fabulous view. "

  • " When we arrived, we found out that our window table request was not fulfilled however, we were not disappointed because every table has an outstanding view of the lake. The service was above average, the food was outstanding and I would have given our experience a solid 5 but the last part of our dining experience was very disappointing. As the tables around us were emptying, the staff began setting up for the next day's brunch. It was before 9:00pm, there were staff were pushing tables together, there were silverware and dish baskets from the kitchen set up around us, it was loud and we felt very rushed. I was very disappointed in the unprofessionalism. We will try the restaurant again and hope for a better experience. "

  • "We were looking for a lovely, quiet spot on Lake Geneva to celebrate our 46th Anniversary. We chose The Grandview Restaurant from the photo and description on Open Table, and we were not at all disappointed. The view was magnificent, the service was professional, friendly and unobtrusive, the food was very good and the price was reasonable. We will definitely return, with friends or family, on another occasion."

  • "We visited on a Saturday for dinner and had a wonderful time. The view from our table was great despite the overcast April weather. Our waiter was pleasant and very efficient without being too present. An error on the salad order was corrected quickly and without excuses. The pianist/vocalist is a special treat, and along with the quiet atmosphere on our visit, made for a delightful, romantic dinner. I'm not sure if she's there every evening, but will certainly check so as not to miss her on our next visit. In addition, there are many gluten-free options on the menu for a worry free experience. We're looking forward to returning."

  • "We were a table of 4, and I asked for the upper level because one of our party had trouble with stairs. We were placed on that level with a wonderful view. Our wait staffer seemed a bit forgetful and tired, and maybe that was because he had been working all day. It took two requests for him to bring a wine list and the special dinner board. Otherwise, the evening was lovely."

  • "We booked the Grandview for Valentine s Dinner and it didn't disappoint. Though the view is much better during the day because of lovely Lake Geneva, looking out over the lake at the distant lights on the far shore was romantic. Good piano/singer. One minor gliche with one of the lobster tails, but they fixed everything just right and threw in a dessert. This has now become my go-to restaurant since Lake Geneva is only 25 minutes from home!"
