We love the restaurant for lunch or dinner with family or friends. Most recently ate at a New Year's Eve event co-hosted by Konstantin Frank Winery. Pluses include: +continuous table service (at least a bar menu available in mid-afternoon), which makes it a great stop for an early meal when you've tasted enough wine already! +local NYS ingredients and beverages...

My wife, I and our two Lakeland Terriers just spent a few days in Canandaigua New York. What a lovely town, beautiful surroundings and discovering that it is a foodie paradise.

We visited The New York Wine and Culinary Center to join up with friends for lunch at their Upstairs Bistro. The Center is located by Canandaigua Lake and the Bistro overlooks the lake. It is a lovely building, housing a wine and spirits tasting room, teaching kitchen, observation kitchen, gift shop as well as several dining rooms. The Center offers... More

The Finger Lakes wine region is phenomenal and this little stop really showcases the region with a variety of local products. Great tasting room offering a variety of wines from local vintners, including the Ice Wine unique to this area.

We had our first wine tasting here 6 years ago, and that positive experience launched our interest in visiting wineries around the country. Today's visit, however, was not as enjoyable. In our experience, $9 for a tasting is out of line, although the samples were generous. Water was offered, but no cheeses or crackers. Our sommelier seemed uninformed, and the... More

We were a large group of about thirty and had appetizers and cocktails in the bar/reception area. We then were taken to the demonstration dining room where the Executive Chef demonstrated some of the preparation/techniques used in the meal prepared for us. Service was very good and the chef was very knowledgeable. I thought it a very unique concept for... More

This is truly a unique venue on the shores of Canandaigua Lake. A non-profit culinary center dedicated to teaching people about, food, beverages and New York's growing wine, beer and spirits industries. We started with a wine tasting in the tasting bar--you can sample pretty much anything that is made in NYS: distilled spirits, craft beers and a diverse collection... More
