We had been given a recommendation for this restaurant by a number of local residents and since we both like Italian food, we gave it a try. I can't say enough about the food and the service. The food was hot and delicious, the portions gigantic, and the service right on mark.

Positive side: friendly and helpful waitress. Negative: the dishes we ordered took five minutes to come out, and my spaghetti bolognese was cold. It made us feel like this was some sort of 'chef microwave' food. I asked the staff to warm my dish and when they did it, it was still not warm enough. My spaghetti was soaked with... More

7ish on a Saturday in April and we were seated at the front window table right away. Great wine and beer list - a lot of local choices but also some international if that's your thing. I ordered the special mac & cheese (which is a specialty) and my husband ordered chicken saltimbocca. Both meals were absolutely delicious. The half... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as this was recommended by a friend. It's a small bistro/gastro pub vibe with limited tables so you have to do call ahead seating. If you have a wait, you can head to the basement for cocktails and live music while you wait- It gets packed down there as well. There were 5 of... More

It doesn't get any better than the Union Block. The food, staff and atmosphere is unparalleled in the Finger Lakes region.

On a Saturday in February there are few choices in Hammondsport. This restaurant came recommended by several people so we have it a go. We called and put our name on the list at 6:20, they told us the wait was 1.5 hours. We went over around 7:15 and were seated around 8:00. Before being sat we were encouraged to... More

My husband and I went for dinner recently after a day of wine tasting. While the restaurant is small, it is very cute and we did not feel crowded. Given that it was the weekend before Valentine's Day it was crowded however at no point did we feel rushed during our meal. The food was really delicious, so much so... More
