The food quality is outstanding. My wife and I love the menu and the service is impeccable. There is not a sub-par item on the menu. Due to the small size of the dining area, seating is a problem though. There are not many tables to begin with and several near the door can be very cold and drafty in the winter.

I enjoy Medusa. Service excellent. The food tries to do a bit too much - conflicting flavors when you purchase everything separately. Albeit everything tasted good individually. Really really expensive entrees.

More of a place for an appetizer and a bottle of wine.

The experience was average. I was disappointed for the money spent. I would try again and order some different options. The menu was nice. However, I was not overly thrilled with the chef's choice, the steak ordered was overdone and had a heavy charred flavor, Saganaki appetizer came without lemon or pita, and the Tiramisu was heavily boozie.

We had a beautiful time singing at Medusa. We all ordered different items, all were prepared exquisitely, and the presentation was very attractive. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the cuisine and wines, and very helpful in ordering. I have already recommended this establishment to everyone!

There are simple reasons we choose to return to Medusa’s. It starts with a warm greeting, moves to a nice crafted cocktail, and then an encompassing menu. Easily one of the the top restaurants in the LG area if not in Southeast WI.

Some musts though - always get a reservation. Always. Sample several dishes and do not skip dessert.

Read the reviews online and thought Medusa would be a great place to visit for a birthday celebration on 12/23/17.
Had the surf and turf (ribeye instead of filet). The char on the steak was overwhelming and lead to an extremely bitter taste. The lobster tail also carried the same char flavor. Best and only edible part of the meal was the whipped potatoes.
$180 later, we had two inedible ribeye steaks that our dogs enjoyed the next day.
As we were leaving we understood why there was so much char on our meal. The flames coming off the grill were ridiculous. Word of advice, turn it down just a notch so you can properly cook a steak without burning it to death. We've eaten at plenty of restaurants that use wood fired grills and have never had such a poor experience.
We would not recommend this restaurant. You get a much better value and an amazing meal right up the road at the Grand Geneva Chophouse.

Medusa had been on our radar for a while, for date night, and did not disappoint. I ordered the chef's choice land and sea combo. My girlfriend ordered the scallops dinner. All of the food was prepared to perfection and was bursting with delicious flavor. The service was good but nothing to brag about. We had the chocolate mousse cake for dessert with coffee. Also quite good. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a high quality dining experience. We rank this restaurant/meal among our favorites.

One of the best restaurants in the Midwest. You don’t have to drive to the city to find great cuisine. The service is friendly and quick with great recommendations. They always have numerous amounts of specials daily which are fantastic. Perfect ambiance for a date night. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great night out with fantastic food.

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.
