The food was excellent and menu had unique choices. Service was a cut above, like the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant.

We stopped in for a light meal before heading to a show several miles away. We got seated before 5:00 so that meant no wait time. Summer here does get busy with the out of towners who stay at Chautauqua and pack in anywhere by...More

Our meal was well worth the 15 minute wait. I had the shrimp and scallops over risotto and it was perfect! Served with bread and a cocktail and I was all set.

Dinner turned out to be an unexpected treat. On arrival we were greeted by an enthusiastic hostess. Our waiter was also enthusiastic and very friendly. We sat outside on a beautiful, covered patio. The food was exceptional. The crab balls, the lobster traps (ravioli) and...More
