    To say this place was exceptional would be a vast understatement. From the moment my wife and I set foot on the property until we left, the experience was amazing. The service was top-notch, the best I've ever had. And the food… wow. The food was spectacular. We did the Prix Fixe menu, and every single dish was incredible. The portions were just right, considering how rich and flavorful the food was. And the presentation was impressive, artful, and unique. This is fine dining at its absolute finest. Would I come back again? Yes, but probably not for many years, as one night costs as much as an entire month's food budget. But for the most special of special occasions, I don't see how anyone could possibly go wrong here. Bravo.

    I love the Fearrington House Restaurant and I have been coming here regularly for more than 30 years. HOWEVER-- on this occasion, I noticed that the entire place needs to be deep cleaned and "polished". The chandeliers in our dining room were so dirty that they were truly a detraction from our experience. For a 5 Star Restaurant I expect more.

Servers were kind and gracious and very knowledgeable about the meal presentations and ingredients. A remarkable dining experience and we cannot wait to go back! Rhonda and Brad

    Fantastic experience for those who want to experience fine dining at its best. Gorgeous location and setting, delightful rooms within a country mansion. A great experience for foodies who value expertise in taste, sight, texture and aroma, as well as clever and beautiful elegant preparations. Price is appropriate to the excellence. Unique, delicious cocktails and expansive wine list and friendly expert advice if you need it, from the sommelier. Attentive and friendly service - of course! A true gourmet experience and THE place for a very special evening or occasion!

    Outstanding in every way. You simply don’t get food and service like this any longer in most restaurants. The family went for a pre Christmas dinner. It was a pre set menu with 5 courses and wine pairings. Each course was described to you while being served and the sommelier described the wine pairing. The cost is not for everyone which made the meal even that much better.

    Beef Tartare with egg yolks and Pork Bellies with maitake mushrooms were the highlights! After 3 main courses and 4 small plates there was no room for dessert. The poached pears with blue cheese were actually overkill and had to take one to go.
