The place was very nice and the waitress was great. The appetizer was a little cold. The seafood entrees we had were pretty good. The brownie we had was dry. It was a nice experience.

The food was gross. Don’t go here. They charged like it was some fancy restaurant though. We had stuffed calamari. It was nasty and unappetizing. My husband had the Chilean sea bass with risotto. The fish wasn’t cooked right and the risotto was watery. I had the fruitta de mare, one of my favorite Italian dishes. Omg it was so sickeningly sweet, and the noodles we mushy. Our son had the chicken Alfredo, which was also very sweet. I’ve never had SWEET Alfredo sauce and it’s not something that I would like to have ever again. The passion fruit Creme brûlée was weird. Our son’s strawberry shortcake was so hard, he had to cut it with a knife. I think the staff knows the food is disgusting so no one even asked how the food was during the course of the meal. DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT. THE FOOD IS SICK SICK SICK!! You’re wasting your money. And they need to clean their windows. They were so dirty.

Food was expensive and quality was mediocre at best. Staff was friendly but far from focused on you. Hilltop view of the lake at sunset from the patio saved this from being a 2 star review. It's a decent experience but we'll be looking for another place to try next time we visit the area. The food quality should match the price, or vice versa.

I had not seen my son in six years and I had requested a table by the window and said it was a special occasion. Our table was not by the window. The petite fillet I ordered I had specifically told the waitress I would like it medium rare and it was more like medium well and the potatoes were cold. I did not want to make a fuss about the steak so I did not ask to have it redone. Other than that the ambience was great and it was a beautiful experience for my son and I but disappointed with the food.

I ordered a glass of chardonnay and it was awful. I complain and asked for a better chardonnay and a second glass was served, however by that time the joy of the evening was ruined. We were seated too close to a table of four and could hear their conversations. We were seated next to the window and as the sun moved, our table was infused with sun and heat. I would not go back. Not worth the disappointment.

First of all the view of Geneva Lake is spectacular at the Grandview hence the name. From the minute we entered the staff was so warm,inviting and genuinely welcoming. Our server Karyn was being trained with another server I believe Amanda and they were so attentive never rushed us and gave us impeccable service,which is not easy to find these days. The cocktails were amazing, a beautiful old fashion,a negroni,and a wine. Two of my guests had the petite filet which were cooked perfectly and I had the salmon succotash that was was cooked perfectly as well. Everything was delicious and we all left with the clean plate club. Thank you Grandview for an exceptional evening I will definitely back.

We were early for our reservation and told to wait in the bar. We ask for a window view and since we were early didn’t think it would be a problem. I reminder the hostess at 5:45 that we were ready to be seated. Their was a couple of window seats available and it was our reserve time. Told to wait. She sat two other couples in the window seats- who walked in. At 6:10 she said we could be seated but not in a window seat. I told her no. We asked for a window seating at 5:15. So we waited. Finally seated after 7:15. The waitress in the bar was great. Very understanding and comp a drink. This was a birthday celebration that was ruined by the hostess.

Food was served cold as if it was standing around waiting to be delivered. I would not comment on this usually but last visit also the food was not delivered hot. So this seems to be a pattern. Eggs were not cooked as ordered. Overall food was not up to standard as expected at the Grandview. Waitress and staff were cordial and welcoming. The busboy should be made aware that he should not put his fingers inside the take home box. Really don’t ever give bad reviews but this was second disappointing meal at Grandview

It is good to see the Grandview back in business on a regular basis. To start out, the Bloody Mary is outstanding and I understand they make their own mix. The Prawn and the Pickled Asparagus spear are a unique, creative, and delicious addition. While I really enjoy and recommend their tacos, I went for the make your own Omelette this time. The chef didn't disappoint having added beautiful seasonal mushrooms to the item. When one couples the fine meals and great service (jenny was super), to the outstanding scene from the window of Geneva Lake, you have a wonderful memory in the making.

Lovely view, food was average.. Petite filet was overcooked (we ordered medium rare but it was well done), sauce had been sitting for too long before server brought us the meal, dessert had been refrigerated for some time. Yummy asparagus, fresh bread and butter, good wine, friendly server.

The ambiance and view was very nice, however the food was just okay. 3 of our party ordered the Prawn and Truffle Risotto, but unfortunately had to send it back because the prawns were over cooked and the risotto was bland and mushy. We switched to the Scallops Provençal which was good. The waitress was new, and a little flustered, but she was very helpful and observant. While not terrible, Grandview was out least favorite restaurant during our trip to Lake Geneva.

Our Server Marla was very good. Especially considering there was only 2 servers for the whole dining area. I had the SeaBass which was flaky and very flavorful. My partner had the NY Strip with Confit Beech Mushrooms which were exceptional. Even the coffee was excellent. Our only complaint is the lack of staff. Servers were not only serving but busing as well. Will go back again.
