Aurora Inn Dining Room

Whether dining indoors in our elegant dining room or enjoying lakeside dining on the veranda, the Aurora Inn is the best restaurant in the Finger Lakes region for waterfront dining and spectacular sunsets. Our award-winning, refined American cuisine is inspired by the changing seasons and fresh regional products and pairs perfectly with the many Finger Lakes wines on our list.

Warm and welcoming with exquisite décor, our dining room combines traditional tables with intimate booths and banquettes—all topped by sparkling silver and crisp linen napkins. During cooler months, there is always a fire blazing on the hearth.

The Aurora Inn Dining Room is a perfect place to celebrate special occasions—from intimate anniversary dinners to parties for up to 25 guests, we are prepared to make yours an event to remember. We can also accommodate larger events in our private Lakeside Room. Whatever the occasion, it will be remembered for fine cuisine, warm service and beautiful surroundings.
