Check ahead for format - some lunches is a limited deli selection, some diners offer a full menu plus special selections from the winery's library (older wines). Very tasty, and great awareness of ingredients - both local-focused *and* great with dietary restrictions

Nothing like hearty, yummy sandwiches and a few glasses of wine (or beer) in the sunshine while the harvest comes in. The wines were OK (we live in France and have a hard time spending that much money for Finger Lake Wines, not just these).

Very good Rieslings. I was impressed with the coffee bar and got a double espresso that took the edge off of wine tasting all day. The bistro is highly rated but we did not have time on the tour we were on to eat, though...More

The Red Newt Bistro is a great place to stop for lunch while in the Finger Lakes. We continue a decades long tradition of working closely with local farmers to offer fresh and delicious local fare. Quick service and simple, delicious food sourced from Finger Lakes farms is the perfect complement to a glass of wine on our deck.
