Food was very good but Julia was spread too thin. They need more help! Julia was very sweet but had too many tables handle.

The view can't be beat! But the food was the worst dinner we've dined out in years! Warm salad, cold dinner. It was obviously put on a plate and brought out. The chef had no time to cook it because it came out so quickly. What a shame!! Best location on the lake!👎

I've been here numerous times and haven't been let down. Appetizers, dinner, and service have always been great. The bar (downstairs) can get a little hectic when there's live music because it's a pretty small place. Always a place I take visiting friends and family when we're doing the Keuka wine trail.

This is a very small restaurant, so get there early so you won't have to wait. The menu is unique, and the food was delicious. Julia, our server, couldn't have been more attentive, and explained all the dishes expertly.

This is a favorite spot in town for locals. Very affordable and bustling. We shared a Tilapia dish with side vegetables (about $11) and Fusilli with zucchini caponata . My wife had a wonderful malbec wine from CA which is funny being in such wine country in the Finger Lakes...BTW the garlic bread earns top grades and we ordered seconds.

This restaurant boasts a beautiful view and indeed it is- especially in the fall when we visited. The great waitstaff and chef made this a great experience. Our hostess Katelyn was superb, and the bartender Sarah made great drinks and offered up some great conversation, along with her attentive service. Aaron was our waiter and did not rush us to...

The Union Block has a nice menu with a wide variety of foods to appeal to any appetite. We went with a group of 6 and were able to order a number of small plates which we passed around the table for everyone to try. Those who wanted a full meal had a nice list of entrees to choose from.... More

This restaurant is new to Esperanza this year. We were not disappointed by the selection of food and of course it was delicious. We love to sit out on the veranda and enjoy the food and view.
