We had been looking for a place that served a great prime rib as our previous favorite went out of business. Was recommended by family and it did not disappoint. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and was so tender. The salad bar was good but I am not a salad fanatic anyway. (Note on menu that salad bar was... More

40 family members gathered here for the lunch buffet. It included salads, sides, hot wings, pizza, hot soup, relishes, rolls and hot pasta dishes. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable. We were served beverages and refills promptly and the area was clean and easy to get around in. There are plenty of spaces/rooms available... More

Warm atmosphere and excellent service. As the title states, the Prime Rib is not to be missed. The salad bar was not overbearing and the prices were reasonable.

Definitely a locals restaurant. Tasty and voluminous. Salad bar was standard fare. We had chicken rigatoni with sausage and fettucini with mushrooms and marinara sauce. Everything cost extra except the pasta. So much food, we got tired of eating it. Incredible amount of food and we had to take much with us--not good for travelers. If we pass that way... More

I have had the fortune to dine at Emile's for family gatherings and the Prime Rib never disappoints! The staff...Patsy and Jodie are wonderful and the service has always been top notch by all the staff! Great salad bar too! Always looking forward to our next visit!

I am not typically one to complain about resturants when we go out, but disappointed is an understatement! The cucumbers in the salad bar were rotting. My mother ordered a steak, well done, it came out rare and black on the outside. My husband ordered the prime rib, medium and it came out extremely rare. I ordered pasta!!!! It was... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday night when we were not able to get a table at our first choice restaurant in Geneva. When we saw all the cars in the parking lot we figured the place must be pretty good. The place was packed with locals. The female bartender seemed to know just about everyone... More

I ordered the eggplant parmigana. Bad mistake. It was the worst eggplant ever. Just plain mush with too much breading and cheese. My wife had spagetti with mushrooms. She was expecting nice fresh sliced mushrooms. Instead the mushrooms were soggy and whole. The salad bar was the best thing about the whole experience. I also thought it was overpriced for... More

This was our second time eating here. We had a memorable dinner years ago when taking a brake from the thruway on Rt. 5/20, on our way from Michigan to Connecticut. The only thing we remembered for sure was that it was a ladies name and the menu was Italian. When we walked in we knew by the sights and... More
