Had friends in for a special birthday celebration. Ports was fantastic once again. Consistently the best restaurant in the Finger Lakes. Reservation on a Friday night was on time and service was great, too.

Because of the reviews, we chose Ports Cafe for dinner on our anniversary. It is a small dining room, and the tables are close together. Our reservation was for 5:30 on a Tuesday, and by 5:45, the restaurant was packed. People are very casually dressed---shorts,...More

The bar is a great place to dine solo when visiting the area for work. The food is fresh and the flavors delicious. This was the best meal I had in the area.
