Fantastic steak, ok lobster, fantastic service. View could be made a LOT better by trimming several large bushes that block half of the panoramic view. But still a nice view.

Delightful views of the lake, staff was superb and service was quick.
My only comment is for the cost of their steaks, I feel they could serve prime instead of choice. Flavors on the glazed where delicious but meat was a bit though

This experience was exactly what we were looking for. We were able to get a table by the window and the view was outstanding. Honestly, the view is probably good from any table. The food was excellent, and our server, Jessica, was delightful! We will be back again and do recommend this restaurant. I had a drink called the Strawberry Dill Margarita, and it was SO GOOD! Who knew those two flavors would pair so well together? My friend got a Cucumber and Basil G&T, gin is not my thing, but she really loved it. We both started with a 1/2 Caesar salad with chicken. They were fresh and good. For our entrees, we ordered the Chilean Seabass Tacos (OUTSTANDING) and the Risotto and Scallops (also super good)! Seriously wanted dessert, but had no room. So we got a brownie to-go, to eat at home later. We had a lot of fun on our friends date at the Grandview and look forward to returning for dinner sometime soon!

The view was beautiful, but the food was not very good. Very small portions for a very hefty price as well.

Hello GusG, thank you for taking time to write a review about your experience and your perspective. It's unfortunate you felt our portions were "very small" for the price. We do not get many complaints about our dish sizes, as they are quite filling and appropriately priced for our facility. Our goal is to provide each guest with a high quality, exceptional dining experience, and that starts with high quality food, much of which is locally sourced. We hope you return soon to give us another try!

Everything excellent but got lost and said we were coming within 5 mins for the patio. Taken. Disappointed since it was our first time. Eventhough there is no guarantee for the patio, she could have held it for us. But at least the food was excellent with the service.

It was disappointing because it was my wife’s birthday and no mention of it at all. Most open table restaurants highlight a customers birthday and anniversary’s.

Nice restaurant in the Geneva Inn. Great views of the lake with solid food and good service. The scallops are excellent. The lobster ravioli less so. The lobster was good, but the pasta overcooked and watery.

Always a treat to visit the Grandview. Food and service are consistently good and I don't think we ever had a bad experience in our many visits. Anytime we are in the area we always try to plan a stop on arrival in town. It is becoming a tradition for us.

I saw the good reviews, and was excited to try it out. The view are beautiful! But the service was terrible, our dinner took over 3 hours and we saw our waitress only 3 times. The food was subpar and overpriced. Not worth the 3-hour wait. Disappointed

Always a pleasure to have a meal at Grandview. We usually come for brunch but today had dinner. We had the salmon and a chicken salad. Both were excellent. We appreciated that the wait staff all work masks and observed social distancing . Although the restaurant was quiet, we enjoyed being able to hear one another in conversation. We will be back!

For the Price you pay I would expect my steak to be prepared as I had ordered it. Waitress said that she "Would Tell The Cook". No manager to complain to. Told them that it was my wife's Birthday when making reservations and they surprised her with a Dessert but the real surprise was that they charged for it on the bill without me knowing it. Again no manager on duty to complain to.

Very nice restaurant located within a small hotel overlooking the lake. Definitely a good place for special occasions. My only complaint was that, for some reason, we never got bread before our meal (looked as if they start serving it at 6-6:30 pm). This was probably a good thing as we had enough food between entress and sides. My husband loved his steak! Would love to check them again during summertime.
