This used to be a very good restaurant. My wife and I had lunch here last week and the menu was very limited. I ordered a skirt steak sandwich which was ok, but somewhat chewey. A special house drink was pretty tasteless and mostly ice. It certainly was not worth the $13. My wife ordered risotto with chicken and specifically... More

This is a great restaurant if you want views of Lake Geneva and you want a higher class dinning experience.

Although the lobby and restaurant look remodeled, the wing back chairs are atrocious, how stuffy can you get? This Inn doesn't have a lakeside vibe, too formal. The room I stayed in was outdated. A big and tall poster bed that is difficult to get in and out of and shaky. The matters was hard, uncomfortable, subpar linens and pillows.... More

Staff was incredibly friendly and the hotel was very pretty. My husband and I had two double beds, but that was a choice so we could have a lake view room. Room was very clean, beds were okay. We had cocktails one night at the bar and both were delicious. Ate breakfast at the restaurant prior to our departure-menu is... More

The Geneva Inn was so calm and relaxing. I was there two nights Fri through Sunday. The restaurant is facing the water. Of course because I was there from March 3 - 5 it is a slower time, but nonetheless, it was peaceful. The staff from the front desk to the restaurant were nothing but helpful and kind. I just...

Great place, very clean with very attentive service. We splurged on a suite with lake view and we loved every minute of it. The decor has been updated and it's very refreshing. The restaurant at the Geneva Inn is a hidden gem. We didn't see any mention of it anywhere, but what a great treat it was. We ended up... More

New owners/management has ruined this place! Menu has changed, prices are up and quality is down. The bar used to be a great add to the restaurant now I can't even get served. Poor management at the hostess station. This used to be a fun place to take out of town friends but I will not be back!

Prices are much higher than the old restaurant The Grandview. Food was much better at the Grandview and the prices in line. The Geneva Inn is so high priced for what you get I will not be back. Use to love to stop there on business at least 10 times a month and their signature soup is gone what a... More

This place was popular 15 years ago. Not much has changed over the years including the decor and menu. It feels really dated with its 1990's interior "supper club" feel. The last time we dined here, the service was really not up to snuff, which is why we will never go back. We were treated very disrepectfully by our server... More
