I cannot outdo the previous superlatives. Great ambiance, fantastic selection of entrees. We had the "Valentines Special" Prime sirloin and Haddock entrees. Drinks, salads, entrees and desserts were memorable. You won't go wrong.

We were in Geneva for the weekend and ate dinner at Ports Cafe both nights. The Cesar Salad was outstanding as was the oyster appetizer. The Delmonico steak was disappointing and the fajitas were just ok. However, the salmon was AMAZING and the lamb shank...More

I'm not 100% sure if there is one or not but I did see children there around the age of 10 yrs old . But it would be in your best interest to call for reservations anyhow and you can ask then
