The Grandview Restaurant is one of our favorite restaurants to dine at. The view of Geneva Lake from the dining room windows is spectacular, there are a lot of options to choose from on the menu and the food is delicious. It is also quiet in the dining room even when nearly full. We enjoyed the filet and halibut. We look forward to returning.

We celebrated my husbands birthday here last night. I ordered the salmon with risotto which was cooked to perfection, but the risotto totally lacked any kind of flavor. My husband ordered the walleye which again lacked flavor with whipped potatoes. The food was just ok, and although the waitress did her job she wasn’t friendly. I expected a little bit more from this dining experience and was very disappointed.

We were there for their Thanksgiving Dinner. Everything was delicious and tasted like a homemade dinner. The service was outstanding and we were fortunate enough to have a window table with a view of the lake. We look forward to our next meal there.

Our Thanksgiving Dinner was very good. Just a couple of suggestions,

1) suppling serving spoons would have made it much easier to take food from family
style platters.
2) food came to table lukewarm.

Excellent menu, great food. Bartender makes a great cocktail. Had the wienerschnitzel which you don't often see. Large, tasty portions. My wife had an excellent filet. We were the last ones in the restaurant, 1/2 hour before closing. We were not offered dessert or coffee which I thought odd and disappointing. So we left. Otherwise, very good restaurant with a gorgeous view.

The host was a very nice friendly young man and was only 17 years old ,Amazing! We were early for our dinner reservation so we had drink in the bar room. We were served as soon as we sat down. We were seated at a window table which is what I wanted. Our server was Michele. She was ,in my opinion,the best server I ever had and I'm in my 70's. Our food was excellent also! I would recommend this Restaurant
to all. Dale

Our group of three had a very nice birthday celebration. Getting together with friends is always fun. I ordered the chicken Marsala and it was very disappointing. It came with Brussels sprouts that were not cooked enough that I could not even cut them with a knife. I informed our waitress and they were exchanged for asparagus. The chicken was a very good portion but the meat was very dry. My daughter’s $48 steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. For that price I would expect nothing but perfection!! My friend had a veal entree and she said it was very good. I was the only one disappointed, but I figured how can you go wrong when ordering chicken?

Wife and I went out for what we thought was going to be a nice fine dining experience. While the atmosphere (bar, dining room and staff) was great the food was not. For the price we paid it was not all it was cracked up to be. We have had much better for cheaper in the area. Due to this we would not come back nor would we invite others to this restaurant and now resort based on this experience

We were celebrating our anniversary. My request for window seating was honored. There was a lovely note on the table wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Our server, Alexis, was sweet and very attentive. The food was delicious. The only sad part of the evening was I had looked ahead at the menu and was really looking forward to the passion fruit creme brûlée, but sadly they were out. That was the only negative of the entire evening. We will definitely be back.

Our waitress was delightful and the view wonderful. Our food was just ok. The halibut dish had real potential as the fish was done well and the sauce tasted wonderful. The downside was the entree was described as having squash and I’m pretty positive they substituted carrots (without making mention of it). The carrots and apple the fish was served on were very hard and not cooked through.

Amazing view and great food, service left a little to be desired. I'm not sure the point of my reservation, to which I requested a high chair, when we arrived (they had the reservation) the host sat us at a table that I questioned if the hair chair would fit, to which he was unsure but it was clearly too high. Out waitress' visits were bit further apart than they should have been and after she took my payment she literally didn't return for 15 min until my husband flagged her down. I had a seafood scampi, seafood was delicious but the pasta was over cooked and gummy. My husband very much enjoyed his lobster roll and the turtle cheesecake was tasty. I think every seat in the place has a view of the water too.
