Description: 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.

“Delectable Food and a Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

The Finger Lakes wine country in upstate New York is constantly expanding its repertoire
of fine restaurants and wineries . Red Newt Cellars Winery & Bistro is one of the early
pioneers in that realm . Their wine is impressive and the food [ prepared with local ingredients
as the seasons allow ] is some of the best local fare done in a creative style . There's outside
dinning in the warmer seasons and many a lazy summer afternoon has been spent admiring
the view of Seneca Lake while savoring fantastic food paired with some of the best wines
the Finger Lakes has to offer . Check out their web-site to see what events are coming up.
On certain evenings of the week they have live music during dinner .

“Innovaative Cuisine, Outstanding service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

It's not just the quality of the food and wine; it's the caring staff who deliver it and treat everyone as if they were family. One of the best restaurants in the Finger Lakes Region.

“Very good and very interesting food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Stopped here as a break from all-day wine tasting. I believe our group made a great choice. While the decor is a little drab for my taste and from what I expected, the menu choices, actual meals and service were great. While many of the menu items I found to be normal fare, the key to Red Newt's success was changing up the usual items to make it unique and delicious. I had a burger which you can find almost anywhere but this item had a tasty sun dried tomato paste on it that moved it from good to great. I expected excellent things from reviews and I won't say I was disappointed but I will say they do a great job and I plan on coming back due to the ever changing menu and the reasonable prices.
