Restaurant was uncomfortable hot in temperature. The dinner of one person in our group was cold when it came to the table and had to be sent back.

The waitress we had was so wonderful. She explained the menu in great and inspiring detail. She even seemed to have an Italian accent. The food was amazing. Flatbread for an appetizer and the black truffle pasta for an entree. The bread served was also amazing.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Brissago. Tatiana, our server, is always excellent and has a very sweet personality. The only downside is that they are now adding flour to the coating of the calamari, so I am unable to eat them and they're delicious.

Overall experience was ok. The mussels were delicious, burrata was also pretty good. We got the lobster pasta - lobster was well cooked and tasted fine but the pasta was pretty gross.

Very excited after such great experiences at the Chop House at the Grand Geneva. The bread was fantastic. The Caesar salad was nothing to write home about. The Buffalo mozzarella was not very flavorful.

The saffron cream lobster pasta was very good. Definitely best dish of the night.

The tiramisu was not good. No flavor and tasted like a thaw-n-serve.

Overall, it was good but I would not go back. Definitely recommend the Chop House on site.

Truly an outstanding experience. Service was excellent but the food was incredible. Amish chicken and scallops were the choices of the evening. So tender and flavorful but I think anything we would have ordered would have been just as good.

Great experience. Waitress Sabrina was superb. Either Brissago does a great job of training or she is just a great person that has just got it, or both. Everyone was great. Only criticism is that octopus was a bit chewy. Probably wouldn’t get that again. Everything else was great. We will definitely be back and continue to recommend it. Thank you for treating my wife special for her birthday. We had a great table and she got a special dessert with Happy Birthday on the plate in chocolate.

Dinner was excellent. Service was very good.

The major problem was a table with 2-3 families seated together. There were 6-8 young children from this table running around the restaurant and lobby making a lot of noise. The children were very loud while sitting in their area at the table as well. The parents were at fault -- not interested in correcting their behavior. This made the evening challenging for the servers and many couples at tables throughout the restaurant.

My wife and I had an early evening meal at your restaurant last weekend. Although we have visited Lake Geneva many times this was our first dining experience at your restaurant. The food was quite good with ample portions. Service was very attentive and we were seated near the window overlooking the golf course, which was beautiful. We look forward to dining there again.
