Stopped at the Red Dove while vacationing along Seneca Lake. They have a nice wine list and not all the selections are from the Finger Lakes. The menu is interesting in that the offerings are not typical of a bar. I enjoyed an arugula salad...More

Wednesday nights! Really good oysters! Variety and taste. Staff is friendly. Try some of the small plates too. Bartender made a great vodka tonic!

The food here is very good and not your typical bar fare. A little more upscale and a bit more inventive while remaining on the conservative side. Eclectic choices like dolmades appetizers and trout over a veggie modge-podge. Good stuff. Friendly staff.

All four dinners tasty and well plated. Duck, pork, clams, salads all excellent. Vegetarian apps and raw oysters very good. Service was spotty. Wine and mixed drinks arrived promptly, had to remind waitress about non-alcoholic beverages. (As a tea-totaler, this is a pet peeve.)
