Dinner menu was small, drink menu was large, everything expensive. My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. The staff warmly wished us a happy night. Food was delicious and the atmosphere made for a special evening. Wait staff was attentive, pianist was excellent, grounds were well kept.
My dinner was fine. The piano music was great! Our meal came out too soon- would have enjoyed spreading it out a bit. Spending lots of money- let me enjoy it. The steak special was nothing special - the price $65 for a NY Strip was over the top! And the actual steak was tough and chewy. Very disappointing! Veggies were good though. We skipped breakfast. 😬
3 couples Recently went to the Christmas Luncheon. Decorations were minimal, piano music was nice. Food coming out was slow, service was attentive although they were out of a lot of beers on menu. 2 ordered: chicken sandwich and lamb burger with soup, both served with chips. Both enjoyed sandwiches. Soup came out with meal, cold ???? The 4 remaining ordered the beef tenderloin sliders. 3 came out 5 minutes after the sandwiches were served, the fourth slider plate came out 8 minutes later. Sliders were ok, but with 1 slice of shaved beef on the roll, it definitely was not worth the $24. Banana Foster dessert was excellent and came out in a timely fashion. Now the bill… we divided the bill between three couples, 2 paying 20% tip, the third couple did not order dessert or drinks so other couples picked up tip. They paid $92 each, we paid $72. Bills came out with no card numbers or food costs listed, waitress said it was cut off. Flash forward to checking my bank statement… I signed one of the other couples bill so I was charged the $92. My bad for not requesting new bill with food, and services written on it! I trusted the waitress when she told us what each was. Auugghh. Very uncomfortable to go back to other couples to figure out what to do! Will not return, should have read other bad food reviews before we went .
I was debating between 3 and 4 stars, so this is more like 3 and a half. We did a wine pairing with dinner that was pretty average, they gave us pretty mainstream wines, nothing interesting. They were not serving the ribeye that my husband wanted. We had filet, which was cooked perfectly, so that definitely saved this dinner. We also got the baked Alaska flamed table side. They couldn’t get the branch to light, and by the time they (sort of) lit it, for two seconds, everything was melted and it just wasn’t very good. It was extremely buggy, I got bit by mosquitoes all night and couldn’t really enjoy my dinner. They had a pianist outside playing the whole time, which was very nice.
Spent a fabulous weekend on Geneva on the Lake for my mother’s 80th birthday. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and both meals were great and the atmosphere was lovely. There is a covered patio so we were outside, socially distanced and the tables were spaced out so it felt very intimate. Reservations are required. At dinner there was a keyboard player, and you have lovely views of the lake and the beautiful grounds. The menu has only 5-6 entree’s and our party of 10 tried several: the vegetarian ravioli and scallops dishes were delicious and presented lovely, the steaks that were med and med well came out perfect but the one that was supposed to be med rare was cooked past medium but the restaurant took half off because it was over cooked. By brother in law still ate it and enjoyed it—these things happen and the customer service regarding the issue was efficient and more than fair. Breakfast was excellent—eggs Benedict, mimosas and fruit. We will definitely be back and definitely eat at Lancellotti’s again.
