Nolan's on Canandaigua Lake
Food was great, the wait staff was excellent . We all enjoyed our meals and the experience.
Kind of hit or miss lately. Love their menu. Service was a bit off. Had to ask for bread halfway through the meal. Food was very good.
This is a wonderful restaurant. Very good food and service
The waitress and wait staff were friendly. Menu had numerous interesting selections. I had the grilled pork chop and my wife had the filet mignon. My chop was delicious and came with 2 large fried onion rings and as my optional selection, I chose the seasonal vegetable which was spaghetti squash, also delicious. Only suggestion is that because the chop was served on top of the onion rings, the onion rings were soft instead of being crunchy, which is preferred. We are from Penfield but intend to make the drive again in the future.
This was our first visit since it was rebuilt and what a pleasant surprise. The new building is very nice and layed out well. We had a nice large booth that easily and comfortably seated 6. First surprise were the cocktails. A true mixologist on duty here. Manhattans and Old Fashions with proper proportions and garnishes and with one large ice cube. Good portions too. Dinner was excellent with good preparation and nice presentation. Our server seemed maybe new but very pleasant. This is definitely going on our return often list.
Another great dining adventure at Nolan’s! We wanted to go on Monday, 11/11, to celebrate the 37th anniversary of our first date; but couldn’t make it. Our Sunday visit was just as special as could be. Out waiter, Ryan, was the perfect professional. He didn’t even stumble over the ingredients in the specials! Our prime rib selections were perfectly prepared, nicely presented, and tasty. Overall, this visit rates a NINE out of five!
We arrived right on time for our reservation at Nolan's, and we were told that there was no reservation. I had made the reservation on 31 October 2019. After showing them the confirmation from Open Table, they seated us. The hostess was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The waitress and other servers were very good very good. It did seem a little chillier of service after I sent my French Onion Soup back because it was cold, I was able to pick it up by the bowl when it was delivered. Steaks were very good.
The next morning, upon checking my e-mail, I found an e-mail from Open Table telling me that the restaurant had cancelled my reservations, without rhyme or reason. I imagine this just caused the experience to be not-as-good as it should have been. Other than that, I would recommend Nolan's.
Our server was absolutely wonderful as was the meal. The prime rib just melted in my mouth. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was excellent. We will definitely be returning!
Aside from showing up for our 8 o’clock reservation and still waiting 20 minutes to be seated, and my boyfriend being unable to get prime rib, the experience was amazing. The waitress was somewhat slower and didn’t come by our table much, but we were there on a Saturday which I’m sure is busy, and she was pleasant every time she did check on us. When she did inform us that they were out of prime rib for the night she was able to give a prompt suggestion of a substitute which thankfully my boyfriend was very happy with. Overall the food was amazing, the service was as good as could be expected for the night of the week, and the bill wasn’t as high as I expected for such a fancy place. We will absolutely return in the future and would definitely recommend Nolan’s to friends.
Fabulous! Food was great and we were seated promptly.
The prime rib was delicious. It was crowded so we waited at the bar for our table. We did have a reservation. The bar area is small and as we and others stood there, servers were challenged to deliver meals having to navigate around the bar crowd and dinners sitting right off the bar were intruded on. We asked for a quieter dinner area and we were accommodated. Definately very good food.
The restaurant was very nice. Food was very good. The server was very friendly and efficient, however, never once returned to our table to ask how our meal was, or to see if we needed anything. Also, even when she came to collect our plates after we were finished, she never asked how we enjoyed our meal? It seems like an upscale restaurant, but doesn't have upscale service.
We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we loved the food and the service it's not our first time there and there will not be our last time we definitely would recommend this place to anyone
Great atmosphere and good food.
A great restaurant. We are so happy to have Nolan’s back in operation. It’s a bit of a drive, from Auburn and from Rochester, but very much worth it
GREAT service, GREAT food, GREAT place! My wife and I love it there!
My pork chop was excellent!! Baked potato was good but made me wish I ordered the garlic mashed. Salad was very good , bread was tasty but tough, like it had been through the microwave. My wife ordered the special - Harvest Salad with chicken. She liked the roasted squash, chicken, etc, but was not crazy about the dressing, which had a heavy pesto taste. The place is beautiful & while it was busy, service was prompt. I'll be back for another chop & my wife will get try the chicken french.
We had a lovely time celebrating our anniversary at Nolans. Everything was lovely and we were seated and served very quickly. The prime rib was delicious and our waitress was prompt and so nice. We will be back soon!
I would as the food was good and they have an enormous selection on their menu but other aspects were not top rated and need attention
What a wonderful night. We made a reservation and we got there a little early, got sat right away. Service was great and the food was absolutely amazing! Kid friendly which was a huge plus. We will definitely be back
We arrived on time for our 5pm reservation and were seated promptly. Our water glasses were filed immediately and we then waited almost 20 minutes for our server to arrive to take our drink orders. We actually ordered our meals at the same time as our drinks so we didn’t have to wait any longer. My guest ordered chicken Marsala which was very tasty I was told. I ordered the Tenderloin au Poivre which I later realized was a filet mignon! No mention was made regarding this error when the server brought our meals and when she did come back to check on us I had already eaten over half of it. That being said, the meal itself was very good and the drinks were generous. I would highly recommend Nolan’s just make sure you get what you order!
Great server! Good service all around!
Reserved4 days ahead of time a Hi Top table. Arrived on time,no table available for me and my wife. They tried to seat the 2 of us at a table for 8,we said no! Then moved us to a corner booth. All this time a Hi Top table with reserved sign on it,remaines unoccupied throughout are entire meal. Not very good planners!!!
Very nice ambiance. Really liked my dish just lacked a bit of flavor. Price and portion size was pretty good as well.
Five went for lunch. I ordered their regular burger medium rare...it came well done and was tough and hard to eat. Potato salad was fine. Disappointed with the burger. But, would go again. Lovely place and a pleasant time.
Very nice building, both inside and outside with very convenient parking. Inside, the restaurant side is much nicer than the bar side even though the food is the same. The food and its preparation was just average, nothing special. The wait staff was slow and disappeared from time to time. The busboys/ servers were very good.
Food, service, everything top notch. You won't find any better from Sure to Roc!
Noise level in outdoor area, very loud and disturbing. Service seemed distracted but was polite. Food service was slow, place did not seem too busy. Appetizer serving of meatballs was good nut mysteriously had crunchy bits in it, main course was good , well cooked, wife’s steak seasoned with Cajun spice was good, my tenderloin with a pepper corn/ wine sauce was goo if a little chintzy with the amount, all in all a pleasant, if not outstanding dinner
It was a birthday celebration for me. Age 74.
Our dinner was excellent, steak cooked perfect, lobster was very tender. The french onion soup as well as the seafood chowder were wonderful. Service couldn't have been any better. Would definitely recommend to friends and will be going back.
Outdoor seating was very comfortable.
Egg allergy acknowledged and accommodations made.
Cocktails delish. Perfect wine list.
Dinner was EXCELLENT.
Just a little too much sauce on the plate of calamari.
Server was on point and a pleasure to have her take care of us.
We will definitely dine here again !
Great food! The prime rib was terrific as was the clam and scallops spaghetti dish. The avocado ranch dressing on the salad was incredibly fresh. Definitely will come again.
The wait staff were quick, polite, and helpful. Nolan’s has delicious food with a wonderful ambience and the best staff around.
Wonderful! Everything was amazing
