The exterior of the Stonecat Cafe is deceiving as you pass by it via the main road east of Seneca Lake. If you are fortunate to get a reservation inside you will find the food you would expect in an upscale bistro, but in a...More

First heard of this place two years ago when the chef prepared the meal for a food and wine pairing at a local winery. Been trying to get there ever since. Even with the buildup of a two year wait, this place exceeded my expectations....More

The chicken soup special was too spicy and had so little chicken we weren't sure there was any in there. The potatoes were served cold. The barley risotto looked like a bowl of cereal. Way too expensive for what you get.

From the outside, Stonecat looks like an old mellowed Fruit market, but the inside is cozy and we were seated on the vine covered porch with a nice breeze for lunch without reservations. The service was good, food great, staff friendly and courteous. Prices were...More

At the Stonecat, it is our belief that food is life. We feel that what people eat is the biggest mark of their culture and a reflection of how they feel about life. We like life in Hector and enjoy waking people up to vibrant, fun food that is grown organically and sustainably. We celebrate the bounty of the Finger Lakes region and focus on regional, sustainable food purveyors and local wine, beer, and craft cocktails. Reservations are highly recommended. Please visit our website for service hours, music listings and special events.
