Very nice ambiance and the food is always very good! We have come for a nice dinner in the dining room as well as a casual lunch outdoors in the summer and the experiences have been great!

The grain bowl is amazing!!
My husband always gets the lobster roll, this time it was a little light on lobster and the price went up, probably won't get it again.

Disappointed we had to ask for bread and when we did it was like we asked for gold. Serving size of Cobb salad much smaller and I. Smaller difficult bowl to manage.

We had excellent table service, but out of our party of six, three were disappointed in their entrees, i.e. strip steak grisley, scallop dish scant.

Appetizers were great! Personally my prime rib and smashed potatoes were delicious.

Very busy on a Monday night so slow to be seated with a reservation and slow to be served. But staff apologized for this at each step which goes a long way. Food was excellent as always, especially the scallops. Love this place !

Server was outstanding. Drink prices reasonable. Salads were very ample and well prepared. Entrees we’re good not great. Wife didn’t care for the blackened fish too much spice.

Best menu in Canandaigua. Reasonably priced food and wine. Ate on the heated porch which to me has better atmosphere, noise level and distancing among the tables. Service continues to be the professional and friendly.

Reservations here mean nothing. People arriving without reservations were seated ahead of us. Then we were put in a section with a server who was already overwhelmed in her own section. No drink or even acknowledgement for 40 minutes.
Finally went to hostess to inquire and she made an excuse but didn’t seem to care and it took another 15 minutes to get served.
The food and prices were not worth the wait.

i am always pleased with my meals at Nolans. I usually come for the blackened salmon which is the best of anyplace I get it. Waitress was prefessional but friendly and even gave us a taste of soup before we ordered , it was something called mullagotony or something. it was delicious . I like that it is quiet and the environment soothing andclassy. I always recommend Nolans to everyone
