Made a reservation a week ahead for our Anniversary, arrived on time sit at our table 20 minutes until we got any service and we had to ask for service. Three table around us arrived and sat down after we did and all were waited on before us. Once we got a waitress the service and food was very good over all.
We had Carly as our server and she was outstanding! So friendly and attentive. The food was great and perfect portions. We will definitely be back
We had not dined at Nolan's before and were greatly impressed! The menu has variety, from great seafood selection to top notch steaks and more. Our waiter was phenomenal. Definitely will return.
Dinner was spectacular! Stuffed mushrooms to die for! Great staff. Make reservations on line...so easy. Prices are higher than expected but when you add a little wine, what do you expect. Happy 35th to us. Maybe we'll do our 36th there too!♡
Most amazing service, and the quality is much higher than the price you will pay. Superb
Outstanding dinner. Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were huge. We enjoyed it for lunch the following day. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We felt very safe as far as COVID precautions. It was a great night out with friends!
My steak was cooked to perfection. And my food came out in a timely fashion. I felt like I never had to wait for food but they also didn't bring it out on top of each other
We had a great meal in a wonderful atmosphere! I had salmon and my husband had a delicious burger.
Nolan’s dining room is lovely inside delicious lunch on a Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm. Great service and I love the big booth just myself and my friend. Food came out quick. Will for sure return soon !
The food was excellent as always, but we were very disappointed by the number of unmasked patrons that were allowed in the restaurant. We saw at least 15 patrons without masks walk within 6' of our table while eating. At one point 4 unmasked patrons that were done eating sat in the hostess area and waited for their unmasked wives to come out of the bathroom instead of waiting for them outside. Also had a unmasked diner stand within a foot of me while he spoke with our waitress. Totally unacceptable! Nolan's has always been our favorite restaurant in Canandaigua, but we won't go back till they enforce the Covid guidelines more strictly.
YUMMY FOOD , AND THEY HAVE VERSATILE OUTDOOR DINING !!
For a place called "on the lake" I assumed the view on the outdoor seating. A little louder than I assumed as well because the patio was one open area still partially enclosed. Some bugs/flies, but considering it was outdoor and there were live plants, but that was expected. The service itself and the food were both very good.
We sat on the outdoor patio which was very pleasant and had a nice breeze. Excellent service. I didn’t love my meal but it was pretty good. I got the crispy chicken sandwich which was a bit overcooked and didn’t have much flavor. My friends meatballs were amazing! Still love the ambience and will order something else next time!
Beautiful setting, terrific server, great food!! Needs more parking
Arrived on time for 1 o’clock lunch outside, but had to wait 20 minutes + to be seated. Except for that and a rather loud group on the porch, we had a very pleasant experience.
Fantastic Food! Would HIGHLY recommend!Our dinners were amazing and our salads were cold and very fresh.
Made reservations a day in advance thru Open Table for outside dining. Arrived (Tuesday) and told all outside reservations were booked
The food was delicious and they went above expectations for COVID precautions. I was very pleased with the distance they kept between tables. Nolan’s is an excellent restaurant.
Took my wife out for her birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great food, great prices and awesome staff
After an afternoon of chartered sailing on Canandaigua Lake, we headed for an early dinner at Nolan's. Our request to sit outside in the covered dining area was fulfilled as we are still not totally comfortable with indoor dining in public. Our waiter greeted us promptly with an overview of the daily specials and then returned with our drinks and breadsticks which were delicious. My wife asked for a hybrid meal of Lobster (instead of Shrimp for an upcharge) and Chicken Alfredo over Penne which the waiter willingly accepted. I ordered the 20 oz. Prime Rib (Medium) and the smashed red potatoes as a side. My wife ordered a house salad with Balsamic while I requested a side Wedge Salad with Thousand Island dressing (instead of Creamy Gorgonzola). The salads arrived quickly and the Wedge salad was superb as it was packed with tomatoes and real bacon bits. The entrees soon followed and were terrific! The lobster was ideal in the Alfredo combination and my Prime Rib was a hefty slab cooked just past pink. The potatoes were hot and mashed to a wonderful consistency. In both cases, we were unable to finish our portions even though they were delicious; however, to-go boxes were supplied and we took our remaining portions home for another meal. We would definitely recommend Nolan's for a scrumptious dinner on any visit to Canandaigua for an outing!
We booked online thinking we would be lakeside, this restaurant is not on the lake. We were seated on the outdoor patio/porch, which was very noisy both from other diners and street noise. Not the relaxing experience we were hoping for. Food was good.
Our party was seated inside. The dining room to the right of entry had very poor acrostics . Impossible to have a conversation.
The dishes including the special apps were tasty and well presented . My dish (scallops and shrimp) was the only one at the table that was not so great. The seafood was insanely fishy smelling. It also lacked flavor.
The other three dinners were delish ! The prosciutto and fruit was amazing!
I absolutely love Nolan’s food and the atmosphere. I was not super pleased with our server as she was not as attentive as we have had in the past. She cane by and asked how our food was and before we had a chance to respond she was already walking away from our table. BUT literally everything else was perfect and always is when we go there. We may only get to go once per year but it’s worth it and I look forward to our next visit.
We arrived at 6:20 and were promptly seated, reservation 6:30.
The food was very tasty, we had steaks, french onion soup, A pasta alfredo dish w/ chicken, shrimp and broccoli. All dishes were reasonably priced.
Great food and service!! I had the Chicken Athena special and my husband had Steak and Shrimp. All of it was delicious. Definitely going back!!
Everything from the food to the service to the atmosphere was excellent! I highly recommend!
Wonderful! The food was delicious.
We went specifically for lobster and it was delicious! Our food came out quickly and the entire staff was great!
Nolan's is always great. The waitstaff is always courteous and professional, and the food is outstanding. It's quiet, comfortable, and not stuffy.
Great location with plenty of parking. Food was very good and their were many selections for lunch. A little loud on the porch, but besides that it was pleasant.
Steak was overcooked seafood was undercooked don’t recommend it
Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Server, food, atmosphere, and compliance with current restrictions due to COVID19. Very, very good job!
Each of us enjoyed our lunch and will definitely return to Nolans
Great food. The refurbished restaurant was beautiful, and the staff was very accommodating, I will definitely go back,
We always enjoy our meal at Nolan’s, especially outside on the deck.
This was our first time at Nolan's. We had made reservations and were seated right away. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I got the Chicken Florentine and it was fantastic with tender chicken and plenty of sauce. My husband got the Eggplant Parmesan, and while it was delicious, the eggplant was underdone. He did not say anything to the waitress. We will definitely be coming again.
Food was delicious, service was excellent, waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. We went here for our 3rd Anniversary and now for our 10th and it only got better!
We were pleased as always. Always a favorite is veal florentine over pasta.
We sat unexpectedly at the bar and had great friendly service from Shilo. Had the burger special which was delicious and calamari and Caesar salad as starts. Burger was excellent! So we’re the starters. Would go back again. Great value and good quality food
As always Nolan’s prepared a perfect meal with fantastic service. We had requested the Patio, so the fact that it was hot was nothing we or you could do anything about. We loved being in the open air, just wish we had picked a cooler day. The food was beyond compare. Everything was prepared perfectly and delivered in perfect order. I didn’t notice our servers name but she was great, as are all of the servers we have ever had there. A first class restaurant that we are privileged to have in our town.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
