Geneva has a well-deserved reputation for its restaurant scene: exceptional, nationally recognized fine dining and innovative “farm to table” establishments, campus and neighborhood favorites, international cuisines, and a fine selection of bars and grills serving local beers and wines in a convivial atmosphere. Geneva’s Italian heritage is evident, as well as the bounty of its local farms and fields, wineries, and breweries. Linden Street and its surrounds host a wealth of establishments within walking distance of campus and hotels or wander a little further afield in the City to other exceptional offerings such as Kindred Fare, Torrey Park, and the Cobblestone. Or treat yourself to one of Geneva’s fine dining favorites, Ports Cafe, four miles south of town, or a mile south take in the offerings of Geneva’s own Belhurst Castle.
For those who wish to explore a little further afield, we have added a couple of favorites in Canandaigua, a short 20-minute drive on Rt. 5&20 to the west, in Seneca Falls, a similar 20-minute drive on Rt. 5&20 to the east. Or try Warfields in historic Clifton Springs, about 20 minutes northwest, or Sapalta in picturesque Rainbow Cove on Seneca Lake, about 20 minutes south.
But a warning: Our restaurants are very popular all seasons of the year and we strongly recommend reservations as far in advance as possible. This is especially true of Ports, FLX Table, Torrey Park, and small, intimate places such as Sackett’s Table and Bon Ami. It’s also a good idea to check at what time an establishment’s kitchen closes if you decide to eat after the evening’s conference activities or find a bar at which to unwind and catch up with others.
But never fear – Geneva is a college town. If you’re looking for a late-night brew, just follow the students! And of course, you can always ask a local what their favorite restaurant is and perhaps find a gem not even on this list.
