Dinner meal was nice. Meal was decently priced and nice quality. The service folks were very friendly and did their job well. I think they were a little overwhelmed, and it appeared they could have used some additional staff. Took a while to get our initial order in. But all in all, the service was adequate. It did take quite a while to get the food out. We ended up being there for well over 2 hours. Much of it waiting for food.

The Grandview is one of my favorite restaurants. The beautiful views of Geneva Lake make this a beautiful setting for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. At lunch yesterday we even saw a Bald Eagle fly by our window! Beyond the beautiful setting, the service is always excellent and food is delicious. For our recent visit, my husband especially enjoyed the lamb and the wedge salad is the best I've ever tasted. Over the years I have enjoyed making the drive for a day trip from Chicago for lunch. or overnight for their lovely dinners.

There must have been an oversight, perhaps because there has been a recent name change at the restaurant and hotel, or I missed some information on the original website when I made the reservation well in advance, but the restaurant only offered a Prix fix menu that we didn’t know about. Two of the five menu items were seafood, which I don’t eat, and my husband is a Celtic so he couldn’t eat the special dessert, but received scoops of ice cream instead. It would have been really nice if there would have been an alternate choice for the 2 main courses. We received two small cold rolls, and no vegetables or potato included with the fish or steak main entrees. The food was very good, and we realize New Years Eve is more expensive, but still feel the price was high for what was included with the meal.

Lovely ambiance, perfect for our Christmas Eve dinner. The view was phenomenal and the service was great. The food was delicious for the exception of the mash potatoes which tasted like they came from a box. The desserts were so good, the apple tart specifically was so tasty and decadent.

Great windows around the dining room which is tiered for a wonderful view of the lake from most tables. Attentive, accommodating service.
Enjoyed pumpkin pancakes topped with a dollop of rich flavor infused whipped cream with cinnamon spiced nuts. Delicious for Sunday breakfast!

Several of us ate lunch at the Geneva Inn and we were very disappointed with the food. We ordered wedge salads (small for $8.) and added salmon for another $12.. the lettuce wedge had artificial bacon bits with no bleu cheese crumbles and the salmon was a small round spongy disgusting breaded bit of something that definitely was not salmon and not worth a $12. Uncharge. We sent the salads back and got a hamburger and a plain lettuce wedge instead. The hamburger was overcooked and really just okay. We were disappointed with our meals, and our server didn’t seem to care much about it. We won’t return to this restaurant.

There were four of us for dinner. We were seated at a lovely table that had it not gotten dark by 5 pm would have afforded us a beautiful view of the lake. Our server, Teri, was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. She definitely was familiar with the drink menu and was helpful in recommendations. The same applied to the food menu and, again, was helpful in steering us to the best choices. We got the Trout and White Fish entrees. For the sides we got the Ceasar salad and Fall special salad. Desert was the Blackout Cake which was shared. Everything was delicious and had a beautiful presentation. We enjoyed every bite and felt very satisfied and happy at the end of the meal. When we're back in the area we will definitely include the Geneva Inn again. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience and evening.

From the beginning to the end the experience was horrible. Upon checking in they stated they didn’t have a reservation for us but we were seated shortly after without the requests the reservation contained. Service was extremely slow. The food had no seasoning what so ever. I had the pot roast which appeared old. It was hard, dry, and flavorless, needless to say I didn’t finish it. Not once were we asked how our meal was. We payed the overpriced bill for horrendous food and left immediately. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

We first came to the Geneva Inn in April after our wedding and our meal was incredible which is why our recent trip here was so disappointing.

I want to mention right away that the service all night was wonderful, we had no issues with the service whatsoever.

Our appetizers, pimento cheese balls and crab cake, were both cold. The pastry puff the cheese balls were wrapped in was still frozen. The crab cake was cold in different spots throughout. It is clear that they were rushed out. They replaced our cheese balls and did not charge us for them.

I ordered the duck breast that was listed as coming with wild rice and mushrooms. The duck itself was delicious, however all of the wild rice was overcooked and even burned to such an extent that I didn't even eat it. The mushrooms were cold as though just removed from the refrigerator. I can't say for certain whether that was intentional or not but if it was I don't understand how the meal was supposed to fit together. So in the end the duck breast itself was very good but the meal itself was not nearly worth the $30 price tag.

My wife ordered a salad with chicken. The chicken was overcooked and tough, and the salad was severely lacking dressing.

All in all we ended up spending a significant amount of money on a meal that disappointed us at each turn, particularly for the price.

Restaurant with great view and ambiance BUT ... food is terrible and service is not so great. We dined here on Saturday during the Oktoberfest in Lake Geneva and were greatly disappointed. The meal started out well -- warm bread and different butters followed by a good salad or soup. We decided to go with the prix fix menu. The seafood combination was tasteless and boring, no salt. The veal piccata was not tender and almost tasted rancid. For some reason our waiter did not explain the menu to our table although I saw him explain the menu to other tables. He never asked if we wanted a second drink either. The meal was expensive and disappointing. Because of all of this, I would not return.

We made a reservation for our wedding anniversary and were rather disappointed. The waiter explained that the evening’s special was a NY strip with zucchini and a potato, but dinner showed up without either of the sides. When I inquired, I was told he made a mistake and it doesn’t include sides. We ordered French onion soups, which was served with a few croutons and a pinch of cheese - not at all like the crock served in literally every other restaurant I’ve ever been to. We also ordered fried cheese curds, which came out cold on the inside. I ordered steak to be cooked to a medium temperature, and it came out no better than rare. My wife had finished her meal by the time it was recooked and served to me again. I also had to ask for a glass of wine several times before it was finally delivered. I didn’t make a big deal of any of this, but it really was an overwhelming disappointment.

Been to restaurant for lunch and brunch was very good. Don’t know what happened but very disappointed with the dinners our group of 6 received. Two meals were sent back to the kitchen and the waiter mentioned that even the cook said the meal did not look right. The presentation of the meals were not even appealing. I had a butternut squash soup that tasted like pumpkin pie filling, way too sweet and too much spice.

We stayed at this lovely Inn recently and enjoyed a couple of nice breakfasts - service and food was very good. Our dinner fell short however as the service was not up to par. That really detracts from an otherwise fine meal. When we return to the inn the n ct time we will eat dinner elsewhere as this is the second time we have been disappointed in their dinner service. Breakfast was great though!
