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.
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.
Fantastic food and great service. Better than Black & Blue for half the price.
This place was great for lunch! Great service and lovely atmosphere.
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.
Great meal but had to share it with flies, knats and bees with outdoor seating.
Nolan’s is the best! The food is high quality, consistent, great variety. Love the owner. He’s always there and checks on the tables. The captains platter is a must have!
Service was fantastic, food was awesome, A great experience. Highly recommended!
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.
What a wonderful place. I was very impressed by the service and the food it’s absolutely perfect! I have never ever had a Fillet more delicious than this one!!!Kudos
Was a lovely evening.
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!
Delicious fish dishes especially the Mixed Broil.
Good service and good value too.
Though understaff the service was excellent as was the food.
Debbie was a phenomenal waitress. Actually, everyone was wonderful right from the hostess table to our waitress. Food was amazing. Atmosphere was great. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a delicious anniversary lunch.
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.
This was our first time here. We were very impressed. The place is beautiful, service was excellent and the food was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be returning.
Very enjoyable and delicious. We will be back for sure
We had a lovely lunch on the porch, food was delicious , the room was very comfortable and the service was efficient. The only negative, pricey.
It was our anniversary, good food, good service. I guess the nicest restaurant in town? It’s like a casual fancy.
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.
Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable! Food was great. Nice outdoor seating space! Excellent value for the money!
Food and service were great!! It was the perfect place for a date!
Excellent food and service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were greeted immediately and our reservations were honored promptly. Our server, Marshall, was personable and relaxed, informed us of the specials, and took our drink order. We both chose the Captains Platter which is a filet and lobster. When you consider it includes shrimp cocktail (large 2 pieces), salad, and entree, the price is justified and fair. Everything was prepared perfectly and service was outstanding. A big plus for Nolans is that they are open Mondays for dinner; not too many Canandaigua restaurants can do this as they are struggling to get enough help.
If you're a lobster fan.... found out their lobster rolls are outstanding and filled with CLAW meat. Their prime rib was more than generous and delicious.
Took early, great service and food was yummy
Food was excellent but I made reservations a month ago and still had to wait 40 minutes for the table !
Pretty restaurant. Good food. They are way under staffed but the staff they had were pleasant and accomodating. Very noisy place. Felt like every booth was in a shouting match with each other.
Average entree starts $25 and up!
Restaurant is a step above…. Service was excellent. Had lobster roll ..absolutely delicious.
Hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed but bartenders and waitstaff were on the ball. Food was good and surprisingly affordable. However, the restaurant is not actually on the water so that was a bit disappointing.
The ambience is lacking.
Server was not accommodating or nice.
If you are celebrating a special occasion… go somewhere else.
On vacation in the Finger Lakes. Excellent choice
My husband and I were first time customers at Nolans and have to say that the food was excellent as well as the atmosphere and service. We would definitely go back again.
We were there to celebrate friends anniversary! Food was delicious and service impeccable! I’m keto and the server knew what I can and cannot eat! We’ll be back!
Excellent first experience at Nolan's. Outdoor seating was lovely, service & food were top notch!
