“Sure thing.”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Trip advisor rankings haven't let me down yet. Never been to Geneva before, I selected the Port's Cafe based on the rankings. It turned out to be a great choice and you won't be disappointed. The building is nothing to look at, and if you didn't know the restaurant's reputation you'd likely drive on by. But don't, the food is excellent, the wait staff both knowledgeable and attentive and you'll find there is something for everyone listed on the daily specials. Can't wait to go back. Make sure you reserve in advance, I called a week ahead and I'm glad I did, they were turning people away at the door and yet honored our reservations right on time All in all a great dinner out.

“Best Place to Eat in Geneva Area”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Go here as often as we can. Reservations needed as they are always packed. It's no wonder as the food is fantastic. Only minus -for old folks-it can be a bit noisy.
Hint- If you don't mind eating early, 5 to 6PM you might not need reservations and it's quieter.

The food was excellent. Fresh and tasty ingredients.
Plenty of local wines to choose from, many available by the glass.
