"The food was great but definitely small portions even for tapas. We tried many different dishes and they were all different/great just small. We went on a Sunday and were one of 4 couples in the place. Emptied out and we were quickly the only ones dining. No complaints. Server was very friendly and didn't mind our boisterous behaviour. Would definitely come back!"

"We go to the Upstair Bistro (and the NYWCC) a few times a year for either "destination" dinners or wine tasting or classes. Never disappoints. The prie-fixe New Years Eve dinner met the mark with 4 courses of well-prepared food and great service. We had early reservations, which was good, as I could see the kitchen slowed down a bit as it got later. We enjoyed the pace of our meal and were not rushed by our friendly and attentive serve Elizabeth."

"We started at the bar and had a great conversation with our very knowledgeable bar tender. Bar offers a nice variety of craft beers, NY wines and cocktails. We started with appetizers of pizza (delicious) and brussel sprouts (OUTSTANDING!). Our dinners were delicious - nicely sized portions, flavorful, delicious! Our waiter was (Matt) was friendly, knowledge and attentive. It was an excellent experience; the food outstanding. We will be back!"

"We have been wanting to try this for some time. We've heard the classes are fun. Our expectations were high since this is part of the wine & culinary center. Our experience fell far below expectations. There were empty tables the whole time but we rarely saw our server. When she finally brought the wine, she brought the wrong one to one person in our party ( of four, of which 2 of us already had a glass from the bar). One person ordered another glass of wine which took another half hour to be brought to the table. Almost half an hour later she asked if we wanted any bread. The food was served to the wrong person. It was good but one entree was cold, the presentation was ordinary. The coffee in the carafe was barely warm. The creme brûlée & chocolate mousse cake were very good. There was a larger group (about 12-15 people) for a holiday party in the dining room. They should have had their own room as they were very loud & obnoxious which also distracted from our experience. The room & building are lovely & decorated nicely. The bar was comfortable & the bar tender was attentive, friendly & helpful. We might consider stopping for a drink if we are in the area but we will certainly not be making another reservation for a meal."

"We have never had a bad meal at the Bistro, the service is always given with a smile and care. The food selections are made from local ingredients and change with the seasons. They have a good selection of local wines and beers as well as outside our region. Sometimes, I have a couple of starters for my dinner to get a taste of the different offerings. Highly recommended."

"While the cheese and meat appetizer was very good, we found no reason to rush back. Good decor and outdoor seating. Good selection of local wine & beer. We felt as if we were being rushed; especially when all our food came too soon and all at once. Expected a bit more from the NYCC."

"Poor service. The reviews on google are true abut the service.
TheRe was a spider in my salad. No apology from server or manager. Still charged for it.
Steak was 50% fat and over salted. Deserts tasted like they cam from a factory.
Don't wast your money!

"The food was overall very good. I had scallops and greens. The portions were on the smaller side but tasty and with a salad it was filling. The atmosphere is very sunny and beautiful decor. I went there for a wine tasting and we followed that up with dinner at the bistro.
Our server was nice enough but seemed a bit lax in many ways. It took a long time for our courses to get to our table and the restaurant did not seem that busy to warrant the slow service. In addition when she dropped off our food she would rush off and once when I wanted to catch her about my food she was running to another table and apologized to the other table for not coming all the way to them before handling my request. I felt like I had put her out. It may have simply been this server, a bad night or maybe poor training but I will think twice before celebrating a birthday or such with a friend or relative there again.

"We have always enjoyed dining at the NY Culinary Institute. The menu is always creative and the floor is delicious. The service is prompt and friendly. It is nice to enjoy high quality food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We look forward to returning again for lunch and/or dinner. Both are always great."

"Good food, well prepared, but extremely expensive. $17 for a small piece of pork belly surrounded by a few greens?? $9 for a glass of wine that costs $13 at the store? Service is very slow and not particularly attentive."

"Best dining experience by far in the Canandaigua area. We ate there for lunch and dinner one day. It's a reflection of the quality of this restaurant (and the poor quality of other dining in the nearby vicinity). We hope they can continue to be a beacon of great food that others may follow."

"The location and drink selection was impressive. I had high expectations for the food as this is part of the Fingerlakes Culinary Institute. We got a dinner roll that tasted like it came from a store-bought bag. It wasn't bad, but it's the kind of thing I'd expect to get at a picnic. I tried the pizza and I was unimpressed. Again, good, but nothing special. I've had equally good wood fired pizza at chain restaurants. However, we had a few side dishes, specials and deserts that were exceptional. Overall, their specialties were something special and the service, atmosphere and drinks were great. So - I'd go again and stick to the specialties."
