    My waitress was very polite and made sure to get answers to my questions. The menu didn’t have a ton of options but a suitable variety for most ppl. My food was excellent! I would surely dine here again if I return to this resort.

    Our hostess and waiter were wonderful, unfortunately our meals were Sub standard. The short ribs had no flavor and weren't prepared properly and the chicken had an odd texture and the gnocchi was over cooked. we had to send the burnt creme Brulee back. we were so hoping it would be good because we like the Abbey.

    We have loved going to 240 West for years. We were the only table in there and was having a nice time, until all the law students from University of Chicago started parading through and disturbing most of the dinner. We had such a terrible time that we didn't have dessert and went home to have ice cream back in Chicago. Nothing was offered after I mentioned something. No one asked the students to take a different route in the restaurant (which was completely empty) so they don't disturb paying customers enjoying the view and food. Disappointing and we will consider going to a different restaurant next time we visit The Abbey Resort.

    We had the maple bourbon cod, which was the best I had in my life. Also had a tender, delicious filet. Wow, we will be back!! Wonderful meal, great service! One of the best I’ve had and I live in Asheville NC, an award winning, foodie town.

Drinks also seem to be somewhat expensive.Although the food was very good it was a very limited menu and the prices seemed to be higher than what they should have been, plus everything like salads were all a cart.

    Anniversary dinner meh…. Emma was an amazing server, very sweet. The food was forced. Trying to be high end but lacking. The risotto was not good-thick sticky overcooked mess, steaks were cooked well but as a frequent restaurant goer from Chicago, they were Ruth Chris pricing with average quality. The older lady who met us at the door appeared annoyed by our presence. When I placed the reservation I said it was our 26 year anniversary. The women who seated us never even looked at the reservation until after we were walking out the door. Then said, was it your anniversary? For $250 bill I’ll stick with Chicago area restaurants. It’s a shame because the Abbey is a great resort but needs to revamp this menu. Drop the average price to 25-50, shrink the giant meat options and go for quality. Don’t over sell what you can’t deliver.

    Service was very good. Food was only okay. Rice was weird. Steak was incredibly salty. Cod serving was minuscule and a major ripoff. Pappardelle was only average. Chicken was very good. Nobody at our table finished their plate. 240 West is trying to be upscale when it isn't. Just like The Abbey, it appears great but in reality leaves a lot to be desired.

    Had issues with Flys at our table. Even when the server was near by he did nothing about it. I ordered a 65 dollar steak medium rare that was well done. Caramelized carrots were hard. Maybe cooked for 10 minutes with glazed add to it. Was really looking forward to dinner but very underwhelming.

    I dine here numerous times when I vacation in Lake Geneva. I dined this evening and the food was horrible. I asked for a medium rare steak and it came out cooked completely. My guest and I ordered soup that was just heavily salted and had to send it back. My guest order steak medallions which was also doused with salt, could not even enjoy the meal. Very disappointed. We were not the only patrons complaining about the preparation of the food. However, our waitress could not have been nicer. Hopefully, the manager rectifies this problem with his chef. As a result of this I canceled my reservation for the following night.

    We had great service but the food was really poor quality! Pasta carbonara with shrimp was a thick lump that I had to cut with my fork- shrimp was fine but that was it. My husband had beef medallions with risotto and the risotto was like mashed potatoes. I don’t mind spending money if it’s good quality but this was far from it. The appetizer of calamari and the warm bread basket were the only things they got right.

    We have dined here in the past. This time it was not as good. I had the cod which was cooked perfectly, but the portion for the price was small. It was served with asparagus which should not have been served! Woody and very small portion. The server never brought bread. We asked about it and he brought it with our dinner. My grandson had the steak medallions which were cooked medium as he asked. They also brought him fries instead of risotto which he requested. His meal was good. My daughter had gnocchi and chicken. It is very rich, but she enjoyed it. The flourless chocolate cake that we shared was delicious! I wonder if food and service was a little off because of it being a Tuesday night and main staff not there? No specials on Tuesdays.

    Loved returning to the best Sunday Brunch as we knew it, back to serve yourself. With the exception of a few food items we used to love and were no longer offered, Belgian waffles made to order, ham, salmon, we had a great time. Exceptional server. Bottomless mimosas and champagne. Enjoying the same pianist of many years. All in all, a memorable visit with our family. Looking forward to next time!

Work on handling calls better - otherwise perfect

    The restaurant had a great view of the marina and the service was very good. We had good wines and the bread was very nice. However, the rest of the food was mediocre at best. We both had Italian dishes. On both, the sauce was much too thick--almost like wallpaper paste. On my shrimp carbonara I was expecting a sauce of butter, olive oil, garlic, and a little parmesan cheese, that would be a thinner sauce instead of the pasty thick sauce we did have. I noticed another diner at an adjoining table who had the same dish I had and she did the same thing as I did. She picked out the shrimp, twirled a few forkfuls of pasta around, then spread the rest on her plate and left it there. My wife had the gnocchi with a chicken breast. She at the chicken and left most of the paste laden gnocchi on her plate.

    I should have known there would be an issue when we walked in at 6:30 and there only 2 other tables. The restaurant is beautiful but that is where the positives end. The server was young, did not know the menu and was awkward. The food was awful, especially for the price. I got the crab which was obviously frozen and cooked so it was disgusting and dry. My husband's beef was all fat. We took a few bites and left to go elsewhere. I also warned another table which had just been sat. Save your time and don't go here.
