Overall, the experience and food were amazing. One of our menus had vegetarian options which were fairly decent, but tended to be”over spiced”, particularly the main course of mushrooms on oats. Besides that dish, I think they were very accommodating and provided excellent service and overall experience. We would love to go back in the summer for a brunch and for the view!

We went there 2 years ago for our birthdays and would have given them stars for everything. We decided that we had found our new "go to" place for anniversaries, etc.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to go in 2020 duke to the pandemic.

This year we made reservations for out 56th wedding anniversary and were really looking forward to it. What a difference a chef makes! Every course was mediocre, at best, and the entree (oxtail) was a gloppy mess of grease.

Service was outstanding.

The chef’s”progressive” dinner was creative, original, and one of the best meals we’ve ever enjoyed. The serving team described each dish thoroughly as it was presented. A beautiful meal in a beautiful setting. Highly recommended.

I actually wrote a review on FB...check Caroline Stevens...I think I would like to try this experience in the daytime to see the view...at night I felt the ambiance was lacking in design and appeal. I kept wanting to redesign the room...Perhaps an old Barn with hardwood wide plank floors...Oversized sliding barn doors opening to the beautiful country side. My only negative comment. I feel the ambiance is almost as important as the food. I spent way too much time trying to redesign the room instead of anticipating the next course. The food was outstanding every bite was full of the anticipated farm to table experience. That being said This was the most expensive meal to date I have enjoyed so I expected every detail to have been scrutinized...Time to change the space...Dessert fell flat...trying to be too clever...Yes you could find the taste of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...For dessert?? Want to come back in the day.

This is my third visit to the restaurant and my first with a companion who is both gluten and lactose allergic. I was worried right up until we got there even though the restaurant emailed me to say they could accommodate her. So often at other restaurants she is served food which could make her very sick if consumed after we have been told they would take care of things I assumed we would still have issues. My fears were quickly allayed within the first few minutes of our seating as our server was already aware of her needs, and from the first course trough the ninth and final course each dish was perfectly adjusted to her needs and the servers made a point to explain what had been done to prepare her food vs mine. I could see the delight in her face as each delicious course was served and consumed that she did not have to worry about getting sick, and she could not stop saying how it was the best food she had ever eaten. I, as usual, was delighted with my meal, with the servers knowledge of the ingredients, preparation, and just pleasant attitude. It was my first time dining here since the new chef arrived and he has not missed a beat in picking up the reigns from his predecessor. One other noteworthy thing is the wine pairing. I highly recommend this. Each glass was perfectly paired to the dish it was served with and in one particular instance the transition from food to wine and back was the most seamless I have ever experienced. Amazing. Everyone should dine here at least once and eat everything put in front of you without hesitation. It is worth every penny.
