No air conditioning. Very uncomfortable dining on a hot day. Server was friendly and adequate. Food on the other hand was disappointing. They profess to serve the 1905 salad made famous by The Columbia restaurant in Ybor city. It isn't even close and was expensive for what they gave you. Columbia should be mortified to think they are passing this off as their salad. I ordered scallops. They were tasty and for me 3 were enough but veggies were skimpy. All overpriced for what they gave you. I would not return there
My server Marcy was terrific. She was attentive without hovering. She took time to describe dishes and told me items that she thought i would enjoy. As a first time guest, her info about Chautauqua was a blessing. My southern tier burger hit all the right notes w the reverie goat cheese playing off the savory meat. The roasted brussel sprouts w onion jam was delish. If visiting here...u must experience and ambience!
Went here for a soft opening. Excellent service, very friendly waiter who was able to help me in all of my confusion about the menu. I was very impressed with my appetizer, the tuna poke. However, the best part BY FAR was my filet mignon! It was cooked to perfection, and I can honestly say it was the best tasting piece of meat I've had in my life. After all of that, the baked Alaska desert was delicious. Although the prices were a little high, I did not mind, as the view overlooking Chautauqua lake was beautiful. All in all, I am very impressed with the improvements this restaurant has made over the years.
Fantastic dining experience. Wonderful staff and food.
6 adults and 3 children went for a birthday dinner. First - they were not accommodating in getting us seating on the veranda or in the window view area. We sat at a large table in the back of the dining room. The service was good which is why I give a "1" rating - except half our meals were served and then we waited more than 5 minutes for the rest. The meals were mostly poor or way over priced. 5 sea scallops for $38.00! I personally ordered Veal Ragu for $30.00. It was the worst restaurant meal I have had in at least 20 years. You had to hunt for the tiny veal pieces which couldn't have amounted to 2 oz. The ragu sauce was nothing like any I had ever tasted and it was sparingly used resulting in a dry pasta. It was terrible and I left at least 1/2 behind. If it hadn't been a birthday celebration I would have mightily complained. NO! NO! Never eat there again.
