We brought guests and upon checking in at 5:30, we were told we would be seated in the back room, which requires going outside and entering in another door. The food and service is still great, but there is no ambiance!
Would have been nice to know before arriving we wouldn’t be in the main restaurant.
First time visit for our friends . They raved about the food!

We like to try different restaurants when we visit a new area. We hadn't visited Lake Geneva in many years. My husband had the pork marsala which he enjoyed. The menu has limited options for vegetarians. I had the vegetable prima vera, which was different than expected, it was good. The homemade gelato was delicious.

Service was excellent! Our party of four enjoyed the experience. The salads were great. My wife had the lobster and trout and loved it. I had the lamb chops which though cooked properly were grisly. The prices were much too high. I have paid less (many times) for better chops in downtown New York.

Off the beaten path. Nice location in Lake Geneva. Our food was great as was our waiter. A bit pricey I thought for Lake Geneva but food was worth it. Wish it were a little more private as you are almost elbow to elbow with table next to you. Drink prices too high as well. But a good choice. Try it, you'll like it.

We both ordered the filet that was served on a bed of grilled escarole and a side of the silkiest mashed potatoes you will ever eat .
This was the tastiest steak either one of us had eaten in quite some time . I think it’s a special occasion place simply because it’s a little pricey,but it was worth every penny !!
Will definitely go back next time we are in Lake Geneva . Great service and gelato that will knock your socks off !!

Overall the food was wonderful, the service was very good and the atmosphere was very cozy.

Some of the menu items were very unique and stress fresh, local ingredients. The woodfired grill gave the steaks takes wonderful flavor and although my wife's ribeye was very tender and cooked to order, my porterhouse was not very tender and didn't seem like a prime cut of meat.

Overall it was a fantastic dining experience

Our night started a bit awkward, as we were 20 minutes early for our reservation for 7 people and the hostess told us our table wasn't ready so we needed to come back at 7:00. We wanted to have a drink before dinner, but there is no separate bar to sit and wait like at most places. We went across the street to Tuscans and they had a full bar with no tables available so we ended up just hanging out in front of the restaurant until 7:00. We saw an employee ask the people to leave the table at 7:00, so they could get it ready for our group. We also saw this happen to another table later in the night. The food and service were excellent, so that saved our rocky start. We shared sides of zucchini, truffle Fries, and Brussels sprouts and they were all delicious as were every entree we ordered...Halibut, Ribeye, Lamb chops & filet. Just don't arrive early, this place is very small and there is nowhere to stand except outside!

There were 7 of us having a girls night get together! The food was excellent but the place is very small and very loud! We were crammed in a corner and luckily it got less crowded as time went on becauseyou couldn't even hold a conversation without yelling! The
Saganaki was fabulous(we had both kinds) and everyone that had the white fish loved it! The "appetizers" are really enough for dinner.
Just wish it had a little more ambiance and not so loud....

We had the grilled calamari appetizer - phenomenal. I had the lobster and scallops dinner and my friend had the lobster and steak dinner. Both were well cooked and tasted great. If I did it again, I probably would have had the calamari as my meal! Service was awesome, friendly, attentive but didn't linger longer than needed. Too bad the portions were so healthy - I would have saved room for the desserts, they looked good too. Downsides, it was pricey and the odor when you first enter is older Wisconsin building. Fortunately, it's quickly covered up with garlic and flaming cheese smells! Would definitely go back and recommend.
