Third visit to Ports. Food, once again, was very good. Service was very good as well. All in all it is a pretty good value. The main drawbacks, which have been mentioned by prior reviewers, are the noise levels and the limited drink selections. It is very loud, so not the best for a romantic dinner out in my opinion. Will definitely return next time I'm in the area.

Went there about 2 months ago. Great food, huge dinner special selection. Nice wine choice. A little noisy but you can live with that. Going back this Friday with my wife for our Anniversary. Don't drive past it, go.

Food and service was good. Just wish they had a better beverage selection. If you want to have an alcoholic beverage and you do not like beer or wine, you are SOL. If you don't also want soda, then you only choice was water (no lemon slice). Oh well, at least the water was free.

Ten of us descended on Ports and were treated to a great meal and great service. The arancini with short ribs gravy were outstanding. I had a fantastic Brussels sprouts salad. The duck and monk fish specials looked great and got rave reviews. Our server (Nancy?) was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. She steered us in the right direction when choosing among the local wines. This was a great start to our weekend in the NY Finger Lakes wine region.

this is a great little restaurant near Seneca Lake in Geneva NY. Our visit was on a Thursday night and the place was packed. The food was great, and our waitor did an outstanding job considering they were so busy. The ambience was a little loud for visiting with our dinner guests, but overall...great place to eat.
