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.

We were celebrating a birthday and there wasn't anything mentioned or noted about it. The small things make a big difference to returning and loyal patrons.

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!

Loved having Sunday brunch here with my friends to cap off our girls’ weekend. The food was pretty great and the decor was wondeful, but the ambiance was what made it such a perfect brunch spot. Only later when I talked about my trip with my parents dude they tell me they used to come to the Geneva inn thirty years ago when they were dating for the same experience we had all enjoyed.

Highly recommended, beautiful setting with wide open view of the lake. Felt a little underdressed in my shorts and t-shirt but wasn’t totally alone as the lunch crowd gathered. For dinner, I would be a little more smartly dressed for sure . Wait staff were wonderful and very accommodating. Felt like we could have spent the whole afternoon there. Would not hesitate to go again. Food was good, wasn’t out of this world, very nice selection of wines. The setting was the star and the service was super.

The sunset view was lovely. We both ordered the 6 oz filet at $40.00 each. The filet was tender....tooo tender. We think meat tenderizer had been added to it because the filet was a little mushy. also, the plate was not warm at all. We're not picky people at all, but when the bill came to $120.00 plus tip, a warm plate was expected also a tender but not mushy filet was also expected.

We had reservations for a party of 12 for a 50th wedding anniversary at 7:45 pm on a Sunday night. We were seated right outside of a private room that had a private party. They were very loud & disruptive, but we were told the doors couldn’t be closed or the private party would get to hot. It was a nuisance the entire meal.
Our food didn’t arrive until 9:45, with absolutely no apologies from the waitress. When we complained to the manager about the wait, he blamed it on how busy they were (not) & on the waitress who was obviously poorly trained in customer service. The manager took 10% off our meal but never came to the table & the waitress never acknowledged it.
As for the food...it had absolutely no attention to aesthetics or presentation - imagine an anemic, white chicken breast alone on a white plate. Imagine a brown piece of dry, fried halibut on a bad of five yellow wax beans on a white plate. Seriously. It was laughable. Taste was ok but steak was rubbery. Also thrown on a white plate.
There is no way the restaurant will survive in this state. I will never eat there again & you should not either. At least until major management changes are made.
