Farm-to-table
At restaurant SAPALTA we stand behind simplicity and the best ingredients. Ingredients and products made by our neighbors, Finger Lakes farmers and some of our closest friends. Picked, packaged, and delivered to us at the peak of ripeness with incomparable flavors. Our local goal is to craft them into a great meal for you, so come down to the lake, have a drink, and dine with us.

*When booking a table you will need to choose a Regular or Outdoor table. Our outdoor space is not covered and in the event of inclement weather we will move your party to an indoor table if one is available. You may experience wait times, as guest that booked regular tables will have priority. If you choose a regular table you will be sat at an indoor table; we will most likely not be able to accommodate changes as our outdoor seating is extremely popular.

    Our expectation was to have a high quality leisurely dinner. We were seated and immediately asked what wine we wanted. The wine was served and then immediately asked what food we wanted. We felt very rushed throughout our stay. The soup was excellent. Our seafood quality was also excellent. We weren’t totally satisfied with the seasoning. The shrimp was advertised as spicy but the flavor did not match the advertising. Our dessert order was incorrect. The noise level built and became overbearing….we were anxious to leave.

    Outstanding service from waitress who was also the bartender. She was just excellent! The food was good. With a reservation we were offered the worst seating in the restaurant. It was a pantry next to the kitchen. The wait staff would continually stomp through the pantry and yell “corner” which apparently was their safety announcement when entering the kitchen. A miserable experience.

    This was the best meal that I’ve had in quite some time. I ordered Moroccan Shrimp. I’m not a person that takes pictures of my meal but was compelled to do so this evening. It did not disappoint and the service matched the excellent meal. I wish that I lived nearby so that I could dine there more often.

    Sapalta is a hidden gem on Seneca lake in the heart of the wine and beer trail. The atmosphere was relaxed and romantic, the food was spectacular. They are 90% farm to table and everything was super fresh and prepared with excellence. A great place for a date and even an overnight stay in their lodge or glamping yurts!

    Excellent food and we were having a lovely dining experience with a very friendly server when, suddenly, after removing our dinner dishes, we were presented with our check! No offer of coffee, tea, or dessert and we hadn’t been in the restaurant more than 50 minutes. Very strange. When we asked about dessert, the server became flustered. Seems they were trying to make room for another group of diners (we weren’t told this - just guessed as people were waiting to be seated)? Disappointing end to a lovely dinner.

    We arrived from Geneva by boat to the newly rebuilt nice long dock. The staff was all very well trained and pleasant. We had family here from Chicago that travels internationally including 2 months in France every year. We ordered numerous appetizers, different entries, and a couple of desserts. We all said the unique cocktails appetizers and entries were unbelievable. Sitting outside with the every Thursday live soft music was once again my favorite dinner out of the summer. The music not starting until 7 PM this late in the summer is the only thing I would adjust.

    So glad we found this gem through OpenTable. Great setting along the lake, not far north from Watkins Glen. Quiet and tranquil spot. The restaurant is part of a cute lakeside motel, and the whole complex looks updated and inviting. Menu choices, while somewhat limited, were fresh and delicious. We had the soup of the day (tomato-based), pea shoot salad, and house-made bread to start, and gnocchi and beef tenderloin for entrees. Great flavors, perfect proportions, and nicely plated. Service was welcoming, attentive and friendly. Overall a great experience!

    Excellent menu choices, a good Finger Lakes wine list and wonderful desserts. The molten brie appetizer was excellent with dried cranberry and apricots and a great homemade bread. The chicken was moist and gad a really crispy skin. The brownie dessert with ice cream was rich in chocolate without being too sweet. Overall a great dining experience.

    Our dinner at Sapalta was so lovely. It’s hard not to have a great time when you get to look out over the lake at sunset. The food was phenomenal and we loved the menu recommendations from our waitress. My husband almost never orders dessert at a restaurant and he didn’t hesitate to order some here! He claims this is the best meal he has ever eaten and I agree. I do wish some of the menu items had been a bit less pricey, as I’m not someone that tends to order a $65 steak. But I love that they’re farm to table and understand why their prices have to be what they are. All in all - such a lovely evening!

    We had a lovely dinner on the banks of Seneca Lake. We started with a sangria cocktail and finished with dessert and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Our meal consisted of the Sheldrake Moon and the Sapalta salad, both were very tasty and generous portions. My husband enjoys the venison which was cooked to perfection and I enjoyed the steelhead trout, our meal was accompanied by a ramekin of ratatouille, complete with farm fresh zucchini. We had a hard time deciding on dessert as everything sounded delicious, we chose the blueberry plum tart and the strawberry peach crepe, both were excellent. We will definitely be back on our next trip to the Finger Lakes.

    Service was great. Risotto and desert was delicious. All else was ok. Disappointed in both wine and beer choices. Expensive food, wine selection below average. Web site is deceiving. Outdoor restaurant is not on the water, but across a road from water sitting between parking lot and hotel rooms with bathing suits hanging over the railings. Poor ambience.

    We dined at Sapalta at Plum Point Lodge during our stay in the FLX region. The Moroccan Spiced Shrimp and Venison Loin were out of this world. Our desserts, Blueberry Plum Tart and Brownie were to die for also. What a great pastry chef they have! The manager Erika was so nice and kind and walked around to tables helping servers and asking if we enjoyed everything. We had a table directly at a window so we had a beautiful view of Seneca Lake as we dined. We had a great waitress, Arielle, who was very polite and knowledgeable. The menu offered most items ala carte, so the bill could get pricey if you added salads, breads, sides, etc. But the meal was heavenly, and yes we would return.

    Lovely venue. Sat indoor dining area, very quiet. Appetizers were excellent. Scallops in entree could’ve been seared more, were a tad undercooked, risotto was very good. Husbands pork chop was excellent. Brownie was on the dry side but salted caramel ice cream was very nice. Server was scarce once ordered so wine came to table well after entrees arrived. Overall would come again.
