    Food was outstanding, venue and ambiance is unique and interesting and very comfortable. Staff are very friendly. However it was also very noisy and hard to hear and it was quite expensive. Overall though, worth a night out!

    Great food before our play at the Huron County Playhouse! A bit of a limited lunch menu…..but something for everyone.

    Large chairs very heavy to move and to get in and out of. No one seemed to help with seating. Service quality seemed amateurish. Not what you’d expect in a winery’s restaurant. Parking lot is a long walk away from building. I have a disability and parked in a handicap spot but it was a city block away from the front door. Focus is on image and less on functionality. Too bad - it has the potential to be much better in so many regards. Food was very good though.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem. Fine dining with appropriate ambience and selection. We were delighted by the special touches of amuse bouche and pallet cleansers. A great experience overall! We will definitely share the recommendation with friends and family.

    It was truly a great experience. The dinner was outstanding. We had the halibut as our main dish. We had had halibut the prior week in New York, and this choice was by far better both in taste, quality and presentation. Our appetizer was the Barata, and it too, was a unique and delicious choice. There are so many unique extras provided during the dinning experience Our server, Holly, was so professional and knowledgeable. One caution, is that it is pricey. The level of quality and service is in line for the cost, but a customer should know in advance that it is a lovely but expensive dining experience. We will go again

    My mom and I dined here on a stormy Wednesday night and ended up having the whole place to ourselves! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The halibut was cooked to perfection and every bite was heaven. The staff provided some complimentary bubbly and other small treats throughout the meal, all of which were amazing. Will absolutely be back and recommend to everyone!
