I stopped with a group of 9 for a wine tasting and lunch. Our wine guide Samantha was knowledgeable about the wines and very friendly. The lunch was absolutely delicious, don't miss out on the tomato soup.

Chose this winery primarily because we needed a place to meet friends for lunch. Not overly impressed by wines, but the small cafe menu that they offered was pretty good. You have to order food from a fairly limited menu at a counter and then...More

As always, a friendly and informative staff here. The wine was very good but specifically came back for the wine called Hellbender. Delicious with chocolate.

I am not sure about gluten free food. Maybe give them a call before you go.

Hi. We are traveling with a small dog and are trying to plan a day and looking for a possible lunch stop that allows a dog at an outdoor table. Do you allow dogs on your outdoor patio? Thank you

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.
