Ok. My last review not great. Well I don't know what happened but this past week the food service and everything was fantastic. Linguine with clams great. Oysters small but good. Lamb also great. Hope it's this good next time.

Went to check this place out (was recommended by an acquaintance) for beers and a light dinner - the craft beers on tap were a pretty good representation of styles of beer, and the bartender let us try ones we were interested in first. The food was a little disappointing - our first choices of small plates were both sold... More

We have been trying a variety of restaurants in the Geneva area and have been pleased up until we ate here. Our server was very good. Her timing was very good - she was cordial- well-spoken and answered my questions for details about 2 of the entrees. It was a bit of a wait for the meals to be served,... More

Great food, nice cozy atmosphere. This place is always on our list for a few drinks and dinner. Food is prepared fresh, and is consistently great!

We frequented this friendly pub for 7 years while our boys were in college at Hobart. The menu is creative but not "fancy." Less adventurous eaters can easily find familiar foods, while we are often delighted with their unusual twists on old standbys and surprises you don't usually find at a tavern. Beer list is excellent, and they have a... More

We visited after not having been there in a long time. Makes me wonder why? Food was outstanding. My burger was one of if not the best I have ever had. I selected the one with the tomatoe bacon jam. Wanted to eat every morsel, roll was as good as the burger. I was too full, so my son finished... More

The Red Dove Tavern offers an amazing and eclectic food menu. Additionally, they offer great beers and mixed drinks, along a nice variety of wines. Definitely something for everyone. This is a great restaurant to visit whether you feel like dressing up, feeling super casual or anywhere in between.

Salads are large so split or plan to box. Menu is eclectic and varied so should appeal to a wide range of tastes. I like the bohemian-esque ambience. Pork chop was a smidge overcooked but still delicious. The roasted tomato vinaigrette so good! Plated veggie options both traditional (sautéed chard) and not (mashed spinach and feta; truly yummy!).

This is my favorite local restaurant! Food offerings are unique & always good. Love the option to get small plates that are unique or order an entree to share. Regular offerings are tried & true....

We really enjoyed this restaurant, with one exception. My husband had the duck breast which came with turnips roasted with red chili oil and honey. He has a very high tolerance for "heat" but found the turnips inedible. Our server just shrugged. So, while we enjoyed most things about this very creative, appealing restaurant, this left us feeling a little... More
