Top Finger Lakes Restaurants
Top 10 restaurants? Ontario County has such an abundance of exceptional restaurants that limiting the number to ten is simply impossible! Here is a list of personal favorites in no particular order. We apologize in advance for those we have left out!
#1. Where the specials are truly special.
Ports Café, Geneva
#2. Pub grub with attitude.
Two side-by-side locavore menus – one as steadfast as the sun, the other as fleeting as the wind – cast delicious waves over this gregarious and creative gastropub.
#3. One table. Many courses. Countless surprises.
#4. Finger Lakes fresh.
#5. Hola, Mexico!
#6. It’s the Empire state on your plate.
The second-floor restaurant at the New York Kitchen features foods, wines, spirits and beers from farms, and food and beverage purveyors across New York State – a locavore paradise!
#7. Vintage chic, with a side of funk.
Start with a big friendly old purple house, add a flair for local foods and Finger Lakes wines and beers, pile on the culinary eclecticism, and you have the Roots experience. There is live music once a week, and you are right next door to Inspire Moore Winery.
#8. Where you're most likely to find the locals.
#9. Fireside pizzas with pizzazz.
This casual, yet imaginative eatery features wood-fired pies, appetizers, salads, and an array of interesting dishes. Small parties will love the intimate setting.
#10. Classic fine dining.
Warfield's Clifton Springs, Clifton Springs
#11. Best place to watch the sunset.
A longtime local favorite, Sand Bar has an updated look and menu, but keeps the character that has made it legend. The perfect casual hangout to watch the sunset while sipping a local wine or beer and enjoying upscale bar fare. Part of The Lake House on Canandaigua.
