The waitress completely forgot to put our order in, she took ownership for the error but we waited more than hour to eat. When the food arrived it was rushed, the wrap was delicious but the fries were still cold almost frozen inside. The ambience and decor was great, I enjoyed the division of the bar from the dinning area.

We had a reservation for lunch for 12:45. We arrived on time and were promptly seated outside as we requested. Service and food were excellent. Server even made a change to my order to accommodate my lactose intolerance. We will certainly be back!

Nice atmosphere. Service was good. The calamari was not very good, soggy. The fish and chips had way too much batter and was very greasy. Took the batter off.

We were looking for a restaurant with a water view and this restaurant came up. Though it is near the water, there is NO water view. The interior is beautifully decorated. The serving sizes were perfect. Taste and temp were great as well. Other than a lack of water view, it was awesome. Loved it here. Our waiter Ryan was professional, attentive and very friendly.

The staff couldn't have been kinder. I was commemorating the first wedding anniversary after my husband's passing. I was seated at a quiet table, given a glass of champagne and served one of my husband's favorite meals, rack of lamb. The staff were attentive while still allowing me the privacy to grieve. Thank you all for helping me through this very difficult day

This was a great evening out for my husband and our parents to celebrate his birthday. While we requested an outdoor table and only had the option of an indoor table (not to wait longer), the experience was amazing and the food was delicious.

Our server was very personable and attentive. The french onion soup was so very flavorful, the best I ever had! We both had the Sheridan sandwich which was excellent! The beef was tender and tasty! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a delicious meal in a lovely setting.

We got forgotten at our table multiple times. We also got a dessert that was stale and hard. Their raspberry chocolate cake is not good. Their fish and chips were okay but not crispy. The hamburger was average.

Service was great! But both of our grilled meats weren’t cooked perfectly and the lamb was a lot smaller than in the past.

Overpriced. The chef is not that good. Chicken French was too sweet and the color was a little too brown. The calamari was rubbery and drenched with sauce and and soggy breading. Lobster and chicken were both undercooked. The seasoning on the lobster was terrible. The filet mignon was cooked right; however, there was no seasoning.
It was my birthday, so we grabbed a couple of deserts to go. Carrot cake had no sweetness to it whatsoever. The raspberry chocolate cake was dry and both desserts were stale.

Always love coming here! Food and service are great! Also glad the rolls have changed. Our favorite was the bread with the parm butter on it when the restaurant first opened. Least favorite was the rolls after the fire- they were fried and reminded us of fried dough- not what you wanted during dinner. The rolls now are much better.

First time here...checked out other restaurants around Canandaigua and this had the best food!
Had filet mignon...cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth.
Very clean and newer restaurant. Great environment! Service was excellent and quick. Can't wait to go back!

6 women enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the porch. The service was superior ( Heather) the steaks the best they ever had, Salmon a non salmon lover would eat and a pork chop done to perfection. This has become an annual tradition for girls week. Thank you for continuous superior food and service.

We stopped in for lunch while running errands. We know the food will be delicious and service will be excellent. Just as expected, everything was perfect. We were even happier to be seated in Dawn’s section. She is so happy all the time and provides top not service.
