We were disappointed with our meal. We are allergic to dairy and for whatever reason, whether if was the server and/or the chef, they seemed to lack creativity in accommodating dairy allergies. Also, my husband was not pleased with the portion of salmon on his meal. Finally our server was a bit "over the top" with exuberance and she did not keep her mask over her nose. It made us very uncomfortable. The spacing between tables if the best all around Lake Geneva!

We had the Taste of Hawaii 5 course meal in a private room! The service was wonderful! Leslie, the restaurant manager, Colin our server and Dylan the head chef did a great job.
The atmosphere and decor of the private room was perfect! Lights hanging from the ceiling, an Aloha sign in the window, the Hawaiian music and an amazing view of Lake Geneva set the perfect tone for the meal.
Every course was delicious. The combinations of flavors and textures of each course were perfect. The cocktail paired with each course were tasty.
We were just in Maui last month so had current experience to relate the food to.
Definitely a must do in Lake Geneva!

Gorgeous setting and amazing service! Food was meh ; noodles were uncooked, they sent out a new plate and it was still uncooked. Even asked the chef to try them so they knew I wasn’t being dramatic and they agreed. We were given a brownie for our anniversary that was so dry it was white. Perhaps just an off night?

View was spectacular. Beyond that, we were very disappointed. Was not busy when we were there but service was extremely slow. Waited a long time for drinks and returns to the table to order meal, more drinks. Ordered the cheese board as an app. It was ok. Two of us had the filet and it was one of the worse we’ve had. Tough and overcooked. Potatoes were not hot. The other two had the shrimp fettuccine. It was average at best and luke warm. $178 for two couples and would not recommend.

The food was amazing and the atmosphere is very nice. We were luck to have a lake view table at sunset, which was stunning. The NY Strip and Filet were excellent.

Food was all right and the service was slow. Burrata app was good. The hand cut pasta which was supposed to be a radiatore pasta, was actually fettuccine. The bechamel sauce was replaced with a cream sauce. Did not see any ricotta whatsoever in the pasta. Felt a bit like a bait and switch. My husband’s sandwich was fine.

The real issue was the service. It was incredibly slow.

Would not go back unless someone told me there was a vegetarian dish that was fantastic!
