Very good food and service. They were out of the monthly special, crab legs, but otherwise it was very good.

Great time. Great atmosphere, service, and view. The lobster roll was disappointing, need a new recipe. Other than that, all other dishes we had were outstanding.

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.

The host was rude and incompetent. Does not belong in a restaurant.

This was my husband’s birthday! We celebrated with my brother and sister in law, who nOw live in Lake Geneva

Beautiful table and view! A personalized birthday card awaited him at his place setting!
Our wait person was professional; yet personal; just the right amount of follow up as we enjoyed all aspects of the dining order!

My husband thoroughly enjoyed his birthday lunch at his favorite restaurant on his favorite Lake!

Overall good experience but waitress was scarce and nothing got bussed. Busy New Year’s night but having dirty appetizer plates on the table even after entrees were served not fitting of the ambiance or prices of the food. Would still go back and try again though.

They did not have a record of our open table reservation and we had to wait to be accommodated. However they were polite and found us a table. The overall result after that was above average.

It was very cold outside so the restaurant was not crowded for lunch. Seats by the window offered beautiful views. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The lunch menu includes breakfast items which were excellent. On a weird side note, the Ladies room was the cleanest and nicest smelling I've ever been in.

Wonderful restaurant with great holiday ambiance. Came here for brunch with a friend. First time dining here and we both said we would be back. Food was excellent, service was great, and the best part was it was quiet (we could actually have a conversation and hear each other). I had the lobster roll and she had an omelette.

My sister and I dined there last night for her birthday and it was more than "grand." Although I have dined at the Grandview many times since it opened, this was my sister's first time. She can't stop talking about how much she loves it. It's her new, favorite Chicago restaurant. And, we're going again next week just for fun!

My party of four selected The Grandview Restaurant for a first time visit due to learning about "Dine around the Lakes" price fix dining promotion. The reservation was ready when we arrived. The table was set very elegantly, with wine glasses and table ware. We were immediately handed a food menu and drink menu and were introduced to the top most popular items. They did not mention the "Dine around the Lake" price fix option albeit they did have a price fix option on the menu at a hire price. Once we asked about the the dining promotion, we were told it was available, as stated on the menu, but the price was lower. When our server arrived, she stated the dining promotion was not available on Saturday nights which we corrected and she then confirmed. Drinks were ordered and were fabulous. Bread was brought to the table and was warm and delicious. Soups were to die for, smooth, creamy and flavorful! And main course was spot on. Desert was a hiccup but corrected. They only area that could have been better - we were asked if we were celebrating anything and we said yes. Our party had a 53rd birthday and 42nd wedding anniversary. That was it, nothing else said and nothing else happened. If your going to ask, one would expect am action like a comped desert or a candle or something. Another table next to us had a similar question asked (40th anniversary) and received a desert and drink on the house. Did they have the price fix meal, it is unknown. Also, if you are a wine person, make sure you ask for the bottle menu. We did not hear about a wine bottle menu and never saw it. Weird because we did order a bottle of wine with dinner. We would have ordered a different bottle. The only reason I learned about the (better) bottle menu was when I asked about the cool displayed wine cellar as we were leaving. My assumption/speculation is perhaps it had something to do with our request about the "Dine around the Lakes" promotion. Their loss.

Thank you for the review we wouldn't participate if we were going to treat guests any less than exceptional. We appreciate ALL of our guests & patrons and wouldn't be in business without them. We hope to see you again in the near future!
