Amazingly good restaurant on Rt5&20 outside of Geneva, NY! Who would have thought? Sunday evening, we stopped for dinner on our way home (Mendon) from Cornell. We actually ordered the meat and cheese board and chardonnay for our dinner. It was perfect. We then ordered dessert. Wow! Everything was creatively prepared and delicious. Our waitress was wonderful. We will return!

Very noisy at first as there were 2 bus loads of people having hors-d'oeuvres in the restaurant prior to their dinner in a private room. Service and food was as good as always. Recommend often to others.

Kindred Fare is a welcoming place--the service was outstanding, as usual, and the food was good. I was disappointed that their traditional mixed green salad has been replaced by two other salads with a collection of ingredients I'm not that fond of: pistachios, nuts, bacon--but the chef created a special salad for me to try and replicate the old favorite. I only had the salad, but my dinner companion had a kale salad, the salmon special, and wine, and all looked good.

Every dish for our party of four was spot-on delicious. The server was knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful. The place can get a bit loud, but it is a fun energy. This is one of our two favorite spots in the area and will return many times in the future!

My wife and I went for our anniversary. The food and service were simply outstanding. We enjoyed the variety and creativity of the offerings. It was a bit too loud for the type of conversation we wanted to have, but it settled nicely after the dinner rush passed and wasn't really a big deal. Loved the prolific FLX wine selection.

We were at Kindred Fare on a very busy evening. We never felt rushed and the service was prompt and courteous. Try the pork chop! It is to die for.

We sat at the chef table, a counter looking into the kitchen, and greatly enjoyed watching the chefs making dinners. We were impressed with the quality of the food, the careful preparation, and the outstanding service. Enjoyed our conversation with the tall chef. Had the pork belly rice bowl and the homemade pasta and sausage. Both were excellent.

The restaurant is in a quiet strip mall near two hotels and has a nice interior. The staff is excellent and attentive. Great drinks menu. The food itself is not outstanding. I ordered duck, was asked how I wanted it prepared, requested medium rare, was told that it was also the chef's recommendation, waited a while, and ended up with an overcooked duck's breast. They were willing to take it back, but I was hungry and just ate what I could. The accompaniments were terrific. My wife's veggie burger was only so-so. Overall, not great for a supposed high end restaurant. I would also caution that there are limited vegetarian options -- it's a meat-heavy menu.

Amazing food. Got the steak and the hot and honey fried chicken. To die for. They also knew it was our anniversary and gave us 2 glasses of champagne on the house to congratulate us. So sweet! If you’re in the area, this place is a must.

Thank you for dining with us and we are happy that you enjoyed the food and service. Sorry that you felt it was too noisy. It was an extra busy Summer night, and we believe you sat in our bar area. Shall you visit us again please don't hesitate to ask for a quieter location in our dining room, side room or patio if the weather is nice.

Only in town for one night, I stressed about where to go for our anniversary dinner. I am SO HAPPY we decided on Kindred Fare. The food was amazing, the service was great, the drink and craft beer selections were top-notch, and the ambiance made you want to hang out for hours (or longer). My wife had the veggie burger. She loved it, and their fries with that garlic aioli are amazing!! I had the "special" steak entree, which was a local ribeye. There was hardly a stitch of fat in/on it, and it tasted SO GOOD. We updgraded the side to the mac & cheese, and while it was good, it fell a little short for me. As for the service, everyone was very friendly, and our server was very attentive without being all over us. The only constructive thing I would say is that we would have stayed for dessert but none of the selections really stood out to us. If/when we are in the area again, we will be back. We live 2 hours away and wish we had a place just like this near us. Thank you for a great dining experience!

What a gem of a food and drink establishment. Their staff was attentive, their menu imaginative, the beverage options unlimited. The quality and preparation of food was excellent. We sampled the zucchini fennel salad with crispy quinoa and burrata, the kale and gnocchi, cheese trio, crispy chicken, not to mention a few cocktails with local spirits and FLX wines. Only drawback was the noise level. Must try!
