240° West Ratings and Reviews
We have been to this brunch several times. This time there was an obnoxious couple that took the staffs time and it was difficult to get anything from an omelet to mimosa. Several times while we were trying to eat, the woman jumped on top of the man in the booth. They were loud and rude to others trying to eat. Rather than stop the behaviour, the staff came and laughed along with them.
They went the extra mile in making our friend's 60th a truly memorable evening. Specialty Martini's were a hit, loved the grilled peach, arugula and ricotta salad and the vegetable stack and salmon. Fun was had by all and then capped off with wonderful desserts. Paired with our day at the spa, couldn't have been better.
Had a great girls night out. The salad with grilled peaches and goat cheese and arugala and the champagne vinaigrette was a great starter. All of our meals were outstanding, including the Chilean sea bass, the diver scallops, and the pork chop. Our waiter, Edward, was very helpful in making suggestions, patient when we could not decide right away. The trumpet player doing the birthday song and delicious flourless cake was an added bonus and very enjoyable.
We had reservations for 7pm. We arrived at 655pm and we were seated immediately toward the back of the restaurant but in front of the windows which a gorgeous view of the harbor. It was my husband birthday. My husband had the wedge salad and i had the prime rib buffet. The selection on the buffet was big ranging from seafood like crab legs, oysters, clams and mussels in a lobster sherry sauce, pan seared walleye, baked potato bar with all the fixings, pasta, chicken, salad bar, prime rib, and assorted desserts. Everything i tried was very good. I'm a seafood lover. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant with low lighting and the music from the pianist Tom Stanfield who is an amazing artist just set a romantic night for us. We will be back again.
Hope it was just an off night, have had great food and experiences here in the past. This time the food was bland and the experience frustrating. Will go again because past experiences have been so great. We did the Prime Rib buffet, beef over cooked, crab and other dishes were bland.
Fantastic service from a knowledgeable and personable wait staff. She recommended a drink for my wife that she absolutely loved. She also really sold the buffet, letting us know what the choices were and her personal favorites.
The atmosphere was cozy for an expansive space, highlighted by an enormous fireplace and amazing pianist.
The food was wonderful and varied.
I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend to everyone I know.
Nice start with seating for 4 at a wndow table, which had not been expected. It is now "off season" so it was only moderately busy for a Saturday dinner. Carol was our server and cocktail preparer. She told us more than we needed to know, being very conversational. Observation of her throughout our almost 3 hours indicated that she may have slowed down service to others in her station by being just alittle too gabby. Our drinks were slow in coming and had the service been a little more timely the house may have gotten another round from our group. Cocktail quality was actually very good altho ugh one Martini (actually a Gibson) was overwatered, diluting the Hendricks to an unrecognizable state. It could have been cheap well stock and I'd never have known. Another member of our group ordered a "Perfect Manhatten" and it was prepared to perfection. Glasses were very well chillled so score a plus there. The entire menu is ala-carte save for the Saturday Prime Rib Buffet. Two out of four opted to go for the Prime Rib special, nicely priced at $31.95 with o quantity limits. The buffet was extensive (bountiful) and included crab legs galore. The crab was likely and entirely the smaller legs from Snow Crabs. No large legs or claws and the flesh flavor was the usual watery taste of thawed frozrn crab. Nothing special here, just no limit of a mediocre product. But...and here's the BIG issue with these two guests: when they went for their carved to order Prime rib there wasn't any left. there were some extremely well done ends and that was Get your beef early and your mediocre crab legs later! The other two entrees were Jumbo Scallops (5) and Beef Short Ribs. The guest with short ribs couldn't eat meat as it smelled bad to her; the guest with the Sxallops had excellent results except that the base under the scallops was a huge mound of cooked rice infused with mystery seasoning and visable scallions...not bad but not great, except in quantity.
A plentiful buffet with quality prime rib and oysters. Other hot selections, including crab legs are hit and miss. The Hot items are over filled and not changed frequently, so it is best to be one the lookout for the switching of serving trays to avoid cold fish or oversteamed mussels or chicken. One weekend the featured crab legs were King Crab, but this time they were Opelia snow crab, which are a lot of work for little reward (Our server said that snow crab was the norm, but sometimes they have King Crab or large shrimp, depending on the market price). Desserts are top notch, but spoons are nowhere to be found, which is a challenge if you are eating chocolate mousse! Our server was more than happy to bring the appropriate flatware as needed.
We always enjoy going to The Abbey-240 West for the exceptional staff, amazing brunch and the beautiful view. We celebrated our birthdays there because we don't live that far away and as always it was a wonderful way to spend the day but we have toyed with the idea of staying because the accommodations look amazing.
Food was very well executed. The Chilean Sea Bass was cooked to perfection on a cedar plank. I'd only had salmon in a plank before. My grilled asparagus was charred more than I like it but that's a quick fix. Again done perfectly. My date's fillet mignon was undercooked a bit from how she ordered it but she ate it all and said it was delicious. Fork tender goodness as well. Drinks were reasonable. Overall a great dining experience. Considering it's one of the best restaurants in a 50 mile radius, you get what you pay for. It's a bit pricey so don't venture there if you can't really afford it. A special occasion dinner with that special someone if you live nearby. Romantic view of the harbor. They do run specials at the resort it's in so take advantage of that option. Will go again. 4 1/2+ stars for sure.
Sadly I could not recommend this restaurant. The service was poor (the server could not open the wine (a $70 bottle)), we were given desert but no cutlery, we weren't offered coffee at the end (just given the bill).
As for the food; the Onion Soup was luke warm and far too salty, my Filet Mignon was inedible and not a word was said about it.
We were really hoping for a nice evening, but we left feeling slightly unwell.
Not a good experience.
This restaurant is in the Abbey resort on Lake Geneva. It's the high-end restaurant of this property. It's very comfy, with genuinely friendly service. We ate there on a Saturday night when they feature a prime rib buffet. You can also order off the menu. It was probably our fault that we chose the buffet, because we basically don't like buffet food. And this was no exception: items kept too long on the steam table, flavorless, and the prime rib had no pink anywhere to be found. I don't know that I would chance going back and ordering off the menu, I suspect the food would be similar to the buffet.
Second time around for the lobsterfest but was a bit disappointed with it. It seems like we had a bit more lobster and my corn was not cook well enough. The dessert was okay but rather uneventful. A plate or bowl to collect the shells would have been nice without having us to ask for it. Otherwise, it would have gotten a four star from us at least.
