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.

    Phenomenal service, the food, and wine list was very unique and exciting. The atmosphere was one to die for. You get the sense of a warm homie feel, while also getting to enjoy a fine dining experience. Staff was friendly and very professional. I’ve been to many many restaurants and hardly leave a review. This place deserves a review though. Keep it up!

    Very pleasant atmosphere where we we greeted promptly. Everyone from the host, to Alex( our waitress) were very accommodating . The food was excellent ( small portions for my taste) and I must say the Brandied Cherry via the tiramisu was life altering 😳

    While staying at Plumpointe Lodge we dined at Sapalta twice. Both dining experiences were just outstanding the staff especially Sara were so helpful and friendly. The food was as good as any we have experienced in several years and we travel and dine out a lot. hats off to the chef and each dish seemed to beat expectations. We will definitely be back on our future trips to FLX! Keep up the good work! Salud!

    Pretentious, self-consciously hip and overpriced for the quality. Makes sense that it's part of a marketing concept that includes glamping.

    Maddie is the best server! We have been here the last two years in a row for our anniversary and both times Maddie was our server and she is always so enthusiastic about the food and super kind and attentive. The food is always amazing and I can't wait to go back again.

    This was an excellent dining experience overall. We both had the Steelhead Trout on the recommendation of our excellent server, Erika G. It was the best trout we've ever had. The Sheldrake Moon and the Soup of the day (crab) also were excellent. When we're in the area, we'll definitely return. One word of note - the restaurant is loud and the acoustics are terrible. But the overall quality of the dining experience far overshadowed the noise level.

    This restaurant has a great Finger Lakes view and the property has a number of motel-style rooms and other lodging options. The restaurant is a nice feature if you are staying on the property but this restaurant is not a destination. Food quality is reasonable but not exceptional which would be expected at the prices they charge. I can only recommend Sapalta if you are staying on the grounds. We were wine tasting and picked Sapalta as a destination and were disappointed. They need to up their food game to remain competative.

    The restaurant is in the Plumb point lodge. The service was very good. We ate there twice. Our first time 3 of us ordered grouper. All three were overcooked and we sent it back. I ordered a filet mignon in its place. It was good. Next time I had chicken pesto. It was a very small piece especially for the price. The chef also seems to use a bit too much salt.

    What began with a bump (had reservations for 8 but was not seated till 8:30), ended with a very smooth and enjoyable ride. The manager apologized for the wait and offered dessert on the house, which more than made up for the inconvenience. The food was outstanding and the wait staff super friendly.

    Food was amazing and our server, Maddie, was lovely and so helpful (as was the entire front of the house team). Food runner had me cut into my beef tenderloin to check the temperature upon presentation, which I very much appreciated. Trout spread and accoutrements were fanstastic, the pumpkin soup was phenomenal and the beef tenderloin was absolutely perfect. Beautiful view. A great spot for a more elevated dining experience on the FLX!

    We’ll we were excited to experience Sapalta on the recommendation of our Innkeepers. However we were very disappointed. The tomatoe basil soup was along the line of a chowder instead of a creamy soup. The bread that accompanied the soup was very stale. Now understand they say the bread is made fresh daily, they must not serve it the same day. My friend had ordered the stag. When it arrived there were 3 very small pieces of meat the size of meatballs. My beef tenderloin was spot on and enjoyable. For desert we selected teramissu to only to find out there was none to be had. Overall. I think this place is overrated. I don’t write many reviews and apologize for any misspellings. The content and evaluation is accurate.

    We visited Sapalta for dinner while vacationing in the Finger Lakes region. What a find! The restaurant is located on the grounds of the Plum Point Lodge, a rustic setting on the shore of Seneca Lake. Service staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food is locally sourced to the extent possible and simply prepared. I had New York State Steelhead trout which was fresh, juicy and flavorful. My side of ratatouille was delicious and reminiscent of an old world stew. My husband was equally as satisfied with his food and with the local wine which was suggested to him. If we ever find ourselves in this area again, we will definitely return to Sapalta!

    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.
