We go to Bella's 2-3 times a year and each time we are pleasantly surprised. The staff are friendly and efficient, the food local and the cuisine is upscale and delicious. Worth mentioning that there is also an amazing view of the Thousand Island.

We had a group of 11 of us and we just had a wonderful time. The view from the covered patio is beautiful. The menu had many choices from Duck, to seafood, to hamburgers there was something for everyone. I had the Duck which was outstanding, cooked to perfection and delivered with a smile. The only small challenge for us... More

The views from Bella's outside seating of the 1000 islands is incredible. The food is always great and the staff is friendly. The bar and drinks are delicious and fun. The only thing preventing five stars is after dining several times there has been a mistake with every meal, from forgotten drinks to wrong orders, even having the order produced... More

We stopped in for lunch on a cool rainy May Day. The owner greeted us warmly, asked if we were interested in the heated deck and showed the way. Our waitress delighted us with the daily specials. Extremely pleasant atmosphere looking over the St. Lawrence River. Our lunches were served with prompt smiles by one of the friendly waitresses. We... More

Friendliest servers in town. We were there for breakfast and lunch. You can't go wrong with any of their dishes. The choices of homemade bread was amazing. Grilled cheese on cheddar bread was a treat. They have a small bakery in the front.

We dined here for lunch. I had the Cuban sandwich which was just okay. It was a little dry for my taste. My husband also had a meal, but it was so lackluster, a few days later we can't even remember what it was. There are better options down the road.

We requested a table outside, so we could enjoy the gorgeous sunset with our dinner. The entrees were visually pleasing and pretty good. The brownie was so so. You may want to bring some mosquito repellent. In any case, the stunning view was totally worth it.

You will not be disappointed with Bella's. Try to pick a nice weather day and have dinner on the patio overlooking the river. Great service, menu and stunning view.

Food is good although the menu is limited. No vegetarian or little vegetarian options. No vegan options. Service is very haphazard and not well coordinated. The view is beautiful and the food offered is excellent quality and taste.
