240° West Ratings and Reviews
Our dining experience was wonderful! Our waitress Jayme was exceptional and she really went above and beyond to make our dining experience a memorable one. She made awesome recommendations and was very knowledgeable about the menu items. We will definitely return and ask for Jayme again!
Was able to make a last minute reservation on buffet night. While I'm not a buffet fan, my boys all had a fantastic experience. The crab legs and prime rib made it worth the trip. I appreciate their good gluten free options. Best thing here is the service. From the waiters to the runners, these folks work very hard and aim to please.
Good place to go for nice dinner while staying at Abbey Resort as other choices in Fontana are all pretty casual. Caution on Saturday Night Prime Rib Buffet. Prime Rib was actually very good but some of the other items on Buffet were dried out and nasty. Crab legs were small but good and oysters were not good at all. For $30 I thought you got what your paid for. My daughter ordered slab of ribs and they were dry and tough. Wife ordered Salmon Club and enjoyed it. Service a bit slow with dirty plates sittIngrid in table for a while but waiter was super friendly so that helped. Not a lot of choices in area so this is the place for a special occasion or nice dinner while on vacation.
My wife and I decided to dine at 240 West at the Abbey in Fontana. It had been years since we had stopped at the Abbey and wanted to try the restaurant for the first time. Upon arriving we asked for a window seat and after waiting for a very short time we were seated at a very nice table that overlooked the water and marina. Our server promptly greeted us and took our order for a bottle of wine. When she brought it I discovered it was a bottle of red instead of the white we ordered but she took it away upon discovering her mistake and very quickly brought the correct bottle. She was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and provided good service. We both ordered Chilean Sea Bass which was very good.......it was done to perfection. The only disappointment is the restaurant does not serve cappuccino which was very surprising to both of us. We would consider this restaurant to be a fine dining establishment and in our experience fine dining restaurants always serve cappuccino. Having said that we will return to dine here again at some point in the future.
Our server was GREAT, food was average to good for buffet food.
Disappointing, as we were NOT told it was mainly buffet when we made reservations for a special occasion.
The atmosphere of people constantly milling about ruined any romantic meal possibility.
We were looking for fine dining on the resort property.
Without a great server, this would have been a very frustrating experience.
Bus help was mostly unavailable, we found much of the food was over cooked and was lukewarm in the server. Not good, and not safe.
The price was quite high for the actual value of the food presented.
We were looking for a bit more class, some refinement; and not a family buffet, (as we had inquired, ahead of time, by phone, if this was an upscale restaurant to spend an anniversary dinner at.)
It would have been much better for the staff on the phone to tell us to look elsewhere for that kind of restaurant experience, as the resort does not offer it on premises.
It's a nice restaurant inside the Abbey Resort. We picked this restaurant as a halfway point for meeting our friends that wasn't in Lake Geneva. Decent food, decent atmosphere, nice view, extensive variety to the menu, and a good value, especially for the Saturday prime rib buffet. A good option if you're in the Lake Geneva area or are headed there.
We chose this restaurant based on Tourism brochures & reviews given by prior clients. We were celebrating my birthday. We were seated immediately at a nice table for 3 overlooking the water. Our waiter, Edward, was extremely nice, very helpful with our meal choices, appropriately attentive, generous with our requests. I ordered the special, a 1.5 lb. lobster with Boston Clam chowder, and peach cobbler for dessert. Very tasty--- A gastronomic delight!! But ever so slightly tough or chewy (over-cooked?), hence the 4 stars. Price was outstanding. My husband's Chilean Sea Bass and daughter's Walleye were fantastic. i received a surprise personal chocolate cake (decadent & simply delicious). We would come back again anytime, & I recommend this restaurant without hesitation.
Our waitress was great and very attentive. My main fettuccini dish was pretty good, but I would say my husbands burger was totally forgettable. The worst part was dessert. They "warm chocolate chip cookies" looked like they were store bought from jewel and my coconut cream pie also looked like it was store bought and de thawed. You can't have a finer dining restaurant and not have a good pastry chef. It was a bummer. View was nice though. But, for the price point with all things considered, you could certainly do better somewhere else in Lake Geneva.
This is our second time eating here.....the first was Easter brunch which was terrible. We got a complimentary dinner after we complained. The second time was no better. Food is either overcooked, undercooked or just cold. I wouldn't waste your hard earned cash here.....go down to Gordy's at the marina, standard is much higher and staff are great.
I went here with my girlfriend for our one-year anniversary together. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and the food was delicious! We also really enjoyed the live piano/trumpet player. It was a great night. My only complaint is that we had a reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty when we got there, but the hostess wouldn't sit us by the large windows when I asked (instead we had to sit toward the back where it was darker) because the servers were "on rotation" or something like that.
Having been here many times, I expected the service to be ok. Glad they have new, attentive servers. The food has always been wonderful, and it was that night. So glad they got things worked out. And all seats are good for different reasons: cozy and private, window with view, fireplace. I always ask for view.
Appetizers took about an hour to come out of the kitchen with a dining room that was less than half full. Those tasted fine once they finally came out. Salmon was good according to my girlfriend, but the duck appeared over-cooked at first sight. Once I bit into a piece it was not over-cooked, which led me to believe it had been sitting in the hot window for quite some time. The duck tasted fine but the lentils below it were drenched in balsamic vinegar and was just so overpowering and simply not good. The desserts were not good at all either. The trifle was mostly whipped cream that seemed to be cool whip with some sort of acidic flavoring in it with an extremely thin layer of chocolate cake at the bottom. The berry short cake was dry, stale, and tasteless. Our server was very kind and funny, though, which was probably the highlight of the meal. With the mishaps during our meal I figured maybe a manager would have addressed the table or maybe a side would have been sent on the house or one of our cocktails made complimentary. But no compensation was made for the problems with our meal which makes me averted to return to dine at 240 West. Unfortunate first dinner on a weekend getaway to Geneva Lake.
The staff was excellent. However I had the buffet that cost 30 dollars a person and was very disappointed. Ended up ordering a pizza afterwards. The potatoes on the baked potatoe buffet (a feature they advertised and that I was looking forward to) were cold. The rest of the buffet was only okay.
The service at 240 West was Exceptional!! Our Server Jaymie was Phenomenal! Not only was she attentive and very knowledgeable about the cuisine, she made us feel like family each time we came back (4 times in total). In addition, the food is some of the best we've had! Well prepared and presentation was top notch! Highly recommended to anyone staying in the area, and even those who aren't!
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.
