240° West Ratings and Reviews

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.

Great prime rib buffet on Saturday night. You could also have items on the regular entree menu included in the buffet. The bar tender made a special pregnancy-safe drink. Service was great. The live piano music was also a wonderful touch.

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.

The food was fantastic,delicious and the portions were well balanced.The atmosphere was warm and inviting with nice views from window seats.Service was good,but not quite great.A bit pricey but not unexpected considering location in a nice resort.

We were 6 people and at first were put at a round table that would seat 8 or 10 -- not conducive to visiting with friends. We changed tables.
Tables would be a lot more appealing if they had table clothes on them especially in view of the fact that this restaurant is fully priced.
Those who had prime rib buffet thought food was very good with many good additions to prime rib like oysters and crab legs. Others enjoyed what they had off the menu.
Our waiter, Jack, was great!

Overall, we very much enjoyed our dinner at 240 West. My husband and I were celebrating a special occasion and we had a great table overlooking the marina. The dining room is beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I have to offer some constructive feedback on the food. The coconut shrimp were on the small side and very over-cooked. The edges were blackened and tasted faintly of burnt fryer grease. Not a good start. I ordered the sea bass and they happily accommodated my request to serve it with the rice and curry broth that normally accompanies the salmon - I specifically told the waitress that if the kitchen staff seemed at all put out with the inquiry then I didn't want to trouble them, but they told her no problem, they do that all the time. The fish was cooked very well and the flavors were delicious, but unfortunately the large amount of rice was way out of proportion with the tiny pool of "broth" on the edge of the plate - not nearly enough to flavor the entire dish. I was very sad about this, as the curry was the primary reason I had ordered it! I would have expected a dish that described fish served "in a broth" as plated in a shallow bowl with the broth all around the food, and plentiful enough to play a part in each bite. Other parts were great, though! My husband loved his burger, perfectly prepared medium-rare and very flavorful. We ordered spinach gratin as a side, and it was decadent! We polished it off - in fact, I used that as a substitute "broth" for my copious rice once my curry was gone! The bread basket offered a variety of deliciously crusty selections with soft, freshly baked centers. The bottle of rose wine was very delicious - full and balanced without too much sweetness. We were way too full for dessert, so I cannot comment on that. So yes, on the whole, we had a lovely evening and would definitely come back, with the hopes that the food execution will improve with time!

The dining experience at 240 West was excellent. The food was plentiful and of superb quality at the Sunday brunch. Service was friendly and efficient. There was live music and a view of the Abbey's beautiful harbor from our window table. The restaurant has a nice sense of ambiance, but also kid friendly. It definitely deserves five stars.

Short ribs and baby back ribs were very good, burgers were good, stay away from the only pasta dish, didn't like it at all. The place is nice and the service was very good
Great piano player that played the trumpet also together with the piano, very talented guy.

We never mentioned to the hostess that it was our 49th wedding anniversary but our server asked if this was a special occasion and we said yes, well he was super gave us 2 glasses of champagne and a dessert.
Actually we spent our honeymoon at the Abbey before I was back in the service in 1967.
We love the Abbey and we will be back again soon.

We were seated immediately but then waited 25 minutes before the waitress acknowledged us. It was another 12 minutes before we received drinks, and it was 43 minutes from the time we ordered (after the 37 minutes) before we received a salad. The food was incredible and others around us received their meals and left before we had received ours. The service, though, was truly the worst I have ever experienced. When I confronted the issue, it was made like I was off base for pointing it out by the waitress. The maitre dei did give us 50% off our bill, but that hardly made up for the service.

We have gone to this restaurant 3 times since March 2016 (reside in Chicago) and it's worth the drive. It has become our weekend getaway spot. We have enjoyed the Seafood Buffet on Friday and the Prime Rib Buffet on Saturday. John the chef is very attentive and goes the extra mile to make sure your steak in cooked the way you want it. The setting and mood of the restaurant is very relaxing...the piano player is a bonus! The dessert bar and wine list is well represented too! The restaurant is located at The Abbey Resort & Spa. Enjoy your visit...we did!

We went for the Friday night lobster fest and it was an outstanding meal. The lobster was easily 1 1/2 lbs. along with corn on the cob, red potato, clam chowder soup, and mix berries dessert. Only problem we had was it appears the staff did not like to come by and clear the dirty dishes. Otherwise, it was a near perfect dining experience and we will be back.

Fabulous find for festive dining! Our server, Edward, was exceprtional, providing excellent information to help us make selections. He was knowledgeable about the menu and food in general. True to his descriptions, the entres were creatively crafted, perfectly prepared. Start to finish, a lovely meal, entirely ftting a 20th anniversary celebration!
Very angry to find that for three people ...
Very angry to find that for three people at brunch they added what was about 18% "service charge", then they left a space to leave a tip. Really? I waited on myself all they did was bring drinks. Since I wasn't paying I didn't do anything and I regret that. It's a great brunch but next time I will cross out their 'service charge' and leave an appropriate tip. The service was great but odd that a supposedly classy resort can't keep a blender in the bar due to theft from employees, so any drinks requiring a blender can't be made. Never heard of such a thing. They need to vet their hires.
