Nice setting overlooking Seneca Lake with limited, but good lunch offerings. Also offer unique bottled craft beers. Combine with wine tasting.
We found this restaurant kind of by accident while we were in Watkins Glen. We tasted wine in the tasting room. The wines there were decent, though only one was to my liking. We proceeded to have a late lunch in the restaurant. We didn't have to wait as we were there at an "off" time. Our waitress was wonderful,... More
Hey Noellcakes! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review! We're glad that you had a good time and we're sorry that you didn't get to go out on our deck while it was being renovated, but it's finally done and looks beautiful! We hope the next time you come around, you can have... More
Plan to visit this one even though it's off the beaten path. Although we arrived after food service had ended this would be a great place to visit to have a meal or snack. The view was fabulous and they have an outside patio. Very friendly and helpful with wine tasting...they even had cheese to snack on during the tasting!
Hi boysx3! Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're glad you had a wonderful time. It's really encouraging that people come out of the way to see us, we know we're a little off the main road, but it's nice when people make the effort to find us! You should definitely come back for lunch one day,... More
Wines weren't great. Atmosphere was okay. Tasting was sub-par. But it is a pretty place. Menu and food looked decent, but we didn't try it.
Hey there Craig! We're sorry your experience with our winery wasn't too great! But we'd like to thank you for taking the time to come out and see us anyways. We definitely do recommend you try us out for lunch one day and sit out on our deck, hopefully that will boost your experience! More
My fiance and I stopped in while on a tour of the wedding locations on the lake. We haven't made our final selection, but based on ambiance, service, planing, price, location and flexibility we came away from Castel Grisch impressed. Our stop at the facility effectively eliminated nine of our top ten choices. The fact that the wine and food... More
Hi Phoenix! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your wonderful review, you have no idea what it means to us that you were so satisfied with our service. We try to do our best to be as flexible and accommodating as possible when it comes to wedding planning and we understand that it can be stressful... More
This was a pretty nice winery. Our tasting experience went well and the girl was very nice. The view is very pretty. It is a little bit off the beaten path to get to this winery. It could use a little updating but overall was a good experience.
Had visited there a couple of years ago, and were very pleased....Our recent visit was with the knowledge that ownership had changed and we wanted to see for ourselves...Our experience was quite pleasant....Still the same view overlooking the lake, white tablecloths, very appetizing impression.....The menu regrettably is somewhat limited, but we had read about fondue being available, and when we...

Hey AmigoBert! Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're glad that you were able to come around again after we changed ownership, and since you visited, we HAVE added a few of our old German menu items! So hopefully next time you come around, you can get a bite of our new delicious Schnitzel Sandwich! Hope to... More
Did the tasting and the guy wasn't very friendly. In fact, he was downright rude. He wouldn't even rinse my glass in-between tastings. He never said thank you after I purchased two bottles of wine. Besides my husband and I were the only people in the place and he acted very put out to have to do anything.
Hi there Leora! We apologize that you had a negative experience with our tasting room associate when you visited! It's general policy that we rise out tasting glasses when transitioning from white wines to red wines, so we'll make sure to reiterate that policy to our associate. If you do desire to get your glass rinsed between each tasting and... More
We a great lunch--delicious bratwurst and the trimmings. wonderful view over the hills.We alos did the wine tasting--good wines, but we thought there were better in the area. Lunch 5 stars--wine 4--because the competition is so stiff.
Hi mszymcik! Thanks for taking the time to write a review and we're happy you had a great time! You're right about the competition being so stiff, the finger lakes area is such a wonderful winery hub! But we're constantly working to improve our wines every year, so hopefully the next time you come around, we'll be even better than... More
Apparently it is under new ownership since October 2013. I learned this when the server refused to take a restaurant-specific restaurant.com certificate I purchased in May 2014. (FYI, I was able to get an exchange on the restaurant.com site). The lunch menu was limited especially in terms of German-style offerings compared to what it used to be and listed only... More
Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant DT25! I'm so sorry that your experience wasn't quite like how it used to be, but it's true, we're undergoing a lot of new changes now and were finally able to start making head way only just recently. We officially removed ourselves from the restaurant website in June 2014, but I'm... More
