Service was excellent ! Drinks and dinner was great!
I had a reservation and they seated us in this weird door opening where I was not able to see anything except for straight ahead because of the doors on either side of me and a grate behind me. We asked to be moved outside and we sat at a bistro table. The chairs lean back ensuring you can’t scoot up to the table. I tried to move closer to the table and hit the table leg because I couldn’t move any closer and my water goblet fell over and cut my finger. I didn’t complain, I just asked them to clean up the water and bring a new cup and a bandaid for my bleeding finger. The waiter returned with an antiseptic wipe and a bandaid. I had a hard time opening it since my finger was bleeding and found the perforation by pulling it closer to my face and wiping off the blood. Once I opened it I felt like a shotgun blast to my brain and extreme burning sensation to my sinuses, chest and brain stem and started to blackout. Once I recovered my senses, I found he had given me an ammonia wipe meant as smelling salts which should never be closer to your face then a minimum 10 centimeters. Of course, because I was trying to find the perforation it was less than 1 inch away from my nose. We informed the waiter because we didn’t want that happening again to someone else especially a child. He gave an apology that was half hearted at best and when it came to check time I asked for more water because there was a spider in my new glass of water. He brought me back another cup with water but a new surprise in it. Looked a lot like food. As you probably figured, I was done with that meal and ready to go. I just paid and left and still left the waiter the customary 20% tip because, hey, everyone has a bad day and COVID lockdowns hurt many people in the restaurant industry. Would I go there again, No
Lost our order in the kitchen and no one thought to check after more than an hour.
It was a wonderful experience to celebrate our anniversary. When we were seated, it was a bit tight on the seating. The tables next to ours left us with minimal amount of room.
Our waiter Tony was fantastic, gave great recommendations and service. We will go back and make sure we sit in Tony’s section.
Great service and delicious food!
We usually enjoy Cafe Calamari but we’re a little disappointed. It was confusing in that we two servers taking care of us and they had trouble getting our cocktails correct. One they completely missed but had it marked down.
One person ordered scallops with spaghetti and the spaghetti had zero flavoring, it was basically spaghetti with some tomatoes and the scallops put on top, nothing else. A little olive oil, grated cheese and good tossing would have been great. We also had to ask for silverware after an appetizer and salads as they removed. Our entrees sat for several moments waiting for silverware.
$200 for 4. No apps no dessert. $52 sea bass 4”x4” square with mashed potatoes. $52?
Ordered drinks and saw them sitting at bar for 3 minutes while waitress talked to another waiter.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Cafe Calamari during our brief Lake Geneva visit. We were seated in the outdoor area which is very nice with nice views of Williams Bay. I had a nice old fashioned. Also had a sangria which wasn't that great. Menu has many options. We ordered chicken piccata and Mediterranean style Salmon. Both were very good. Tiramisu for dessert was also excellent. We will definitely visit again on our next lake Geneva trip.
We loved this restaurant! Food is always excellent and our server, Tanya is one of the best server ever!
Food and service were excellent
Great service and delicious food! Would highly recommend!
very nice evening on patio celebrating a birthday. waiter was attentive and food was delicious.
Great food, great service. Even with reservations they had to search for a table. Sat us in bar area. Would have been OK, but everyone waiting stood at bar which was filled so they stood in isles and were extremely loud.
Just great food at reasonable prices with excellent ambiance for a resort area restaurant.
Fantastic food!! Everything the waitress recommended was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive. This was our first meal on our honeymoon and we received tiramisu with a candle. So sweet! It was loud but we decided to look at the noise as a good thing, the world is opening up again! We can’t wait to return. The prices were lower than we expected & the signature cocktails were also our favorites, red sangria & sazerac. Well done Cafe Calamari!!!
We were on our honeymoon and looking to try different places while staying at The Abbey. We've always wanted to try Cafe Calamari. We went for dinner, a bit earlier than the usual dinner rush so that we could get a better table. We were greeted with smiles, very welcoming. Got a great table with a wonderful view of the Lake Geneva. Initially, the waitress was super friendly and greeted us. We barely saw her after that:( The food was great; however, service was lacking. Our main waitress was not the one who took our drink order, nor our appetizer order. She did take our dinner order but that was only bc we flagged her down. She waited on all the tables around us but seemed to kind of forget about us. The assistant servers were very helpful. We left an 18% tip but that was only because she was standing over us while we signed the check and we felt uncomfortable. We will go back, but maybe not at dinnertime. Maybe lunch when it's not as busy. Good service is important to us, as that's what makes the dining experience different from eating at home.
We had an excellent waitress and drinks came out fast. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal except me. I had the pasta where you choose the sauce and type of noodle. My noodles just didn’t taste good at all. The sauce had mushrooms in it that were raw and I couldn’t imagine how that could be in a pasta sauce! I actually hated this meal and it wasn’t cheap. I would go back for the calamari and the service, but I’m not ordering a meal.
Noisy, poor service, mediocre food. Nothing special.
Good food but very crowded. Good for larger groups, but too energized and loud for more intimate occasions. Despite seating location request, we were put right by the door and in the middle of traffic.
We got there first night it was amazing waitress was great food was great. So we decided to come again while in town . And I was disappointed from beginning soup was served cold waited on bread and olive oil when dinner come I told waitress that spaghetti has no taste and meatballs looked like burgers she did not like it and said we'll better too big then too small.
Anyway just not the experience that we had the first night and the food was night the same.
Wonderful Service and food as usual. Plus the view is outstanding!! Thanks again
Excellent place to have dinner! We have been there many times and consider it to be a first choice in dining out.
Delish food and great service. Keeps us coming back.
The food was excellent and our server Rachel was great - she really knew the menu and made some great recommendations.
Food was excellent! Tony was very pleasant!
Delightful setting. Sat outdoors looking out at the lake. Service was great, as was the food. We’ll be back soon.
Loved our dinner there! The staff, from the hostesses, to food runners, waitress, and bussers were great!! We will definitely be back!! Thank you for such great service experience during a tough time for restaurants.
Your second time here. On both visits it was excellent! Good food, service with an outstanding view. Highly recommend it!
Kind of our go to place on west end of Geneva Lake. Dishes all well executed. I had salmon with orange and cranberry sauce- different but really good. Wife had build your own pasta. Loved it. Split a good Tiramisu- really good. Service attentive out on their patio.
Small portions and food was eh
Wonderful food and we had a great view of the lake. It was our anniversary and they greeted us with "happy anniversary" and treated us to dessert. The little touches were appreciated and added to the already great service.
Very enjoyable evening - thank you
The service was great as only surpassed by the quality of the food!
Food was decent. Service was subpar. Our server was busy entertaining other tables and neglected our needs. We won’t be back.
Food was really poor quality. Been here many times without problem.
Good fresh seafood dishes! Best calamari!!!!!
Good food in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Service was impeccable as well.
Great waitress! Tanya H: listened, gave us time and was a joy. Food and menu has changed significantly but still good.
Good food, great view
Stays busy in summer
Service could improve
