Fearrington House Restaurant
Just remarkable.Fearrington House is just remarkable. Perhaps it's the location so close to Chapel Hill and other great universities, but unlike so many fine, five-diamond restaurants, Fearrington has a youthful energy to it. The staff is professional and yet happy to be practicing their craft at the highest level, and it shows in every detail. Every course was impeccable, the wine list is extensive but well curatedand, and the sommelier knowledgeable about all details. It was a fantastic, memorable experience for me and my wife -- and one that we'll hope to repeat at some point in the future.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNot as good as it should beAlthough excellent, compared with other extraordinarily expensive restaurants, FH is fairly low on the scale. It's fine as an oasis, but suffers from lack of competition. Overpriced and underwhelming, a bit formulaic and impersonal, yet still worth an occasional visit.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in the stateWe go to Fearrington House about every four months. The chef changes the menu with the seasons and there are always new and innovative items on the menu. This is a bit pricey (four course meal is $95) but the food is definitely worth the cost. The service is superb and the setting is wonderful. If you have a special occasion this is definitely the place to take that special person.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHonestly great foodSometimes I find fine dining tries too hard or feels a little strained. The fearrington house feels natural and provides fine dining effortlessly. The cocktails are creative and delicious. The food is really amazing, and while also creative, is not too "out there" and has something for everyone. The grounds are also nice for a pre or post dinner stroll.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthdays at Fearrington InnAlways wonderful food with amazing presentations and service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie HeavenFearrington House is a rare gem. The food, service, ambiance and the grounds are absolutely amazing. If you are visiting or live in the Research Triangle this culinary heaven is a must on your to do list of experiences. It was everything and more. It is rare that a place can live up to its stars and reviews but this one did on every level.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the personal touchesWe loved the personal touches included for our anniversary. Personalized menus are a plus so that we can remember our meals....not that it would be easy to forget. We love food and this restaurant provides a truly spectacular experience in wine and dining. It will be a go to bounce for future special occasions.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent.Food and service were excellent.

The grounds are beautiful and the decor very tasteful. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about both the cuisine and wine. Even when not purchasing a very expensive bottle, he spent time telling us all about the options in our price point. Each of us had about seven courses and were not disappointed by a single one. (By the way, I was the only one at the table who was not a chef, and we were all very impressed). Each dish was delicious and the presentation impeccable. The Fearrington house is great for a special occasion and worth every penny.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful gourmet dinner!Exquisite food and service in a charming locale... Fearrington House is always a favorite for a special occasion.

You have to go to a big city to find a peer. And even then, meh, it's not as good. There is something very satisfying about going to a place so elegant that is on an actual farm. Food is superb, service is top tier without being snooty, I am uncertain how the place could be better.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the priceWe celebrated our anniversary here. Everything was perfect. It is beautiful, the service is top tier and the food was exceptional. I would not want to eat here every week as it should be reserved for special occasions. You will pay the price but it was worth every penny. When the menus arrived, it even had our names on it congratulating us!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Meal AgainAnother awesome meal with Fantastic service from the entire staff but especially our server Emma Z.
Thanks again5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our all-time best meals.We travel a lot, and try a lot of different restaurants. The chef's tasting menu at Fearington House was one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. Comparable to Melisse in Santa Monica, which is another favorite. Especially good for foodies, presentation and flavors were interesting and well done. We did not order regular entrees, but I cannot imagine they would disappoint.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMaking a Special Occasion GreatFearrington House Restaurnat offered an experience that was supburb and really very special.

I chose Fearrington House to celebrate our 25 anniversary. I wanted this night to be special. I looked at the menus from all the top rated restaurants in the Triangle and they were all basically the same. Then I read the Fearrington menu. Creative. Imaginative. Seasonable. The Chef's Tasting Menu is extraordinary and highly recommended. You will savor every bite. The wine pairings were remarkable and truly complemented each course. Let them select the wines. You won't regret it. Take a deep breath. Realize that this is a rare opportunity to enjoy the finest food that a great Chef can prepare. You will truly have a memorable experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA top notch place to experienceA top notch place to experience first class dining.

You know you are in a special place the moment you arrive in the village and stroll through the gardens on the way to the restaurant. The accolades are justified and you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic setting. Chef Bedford's elevation to Grand Chef in the Relais house is well earned, and his menu is stunning. This chef is at the top of his game, and success has not gone to his head. Take advantage of the limited time 20% on line booking discount and you have the makings of a memorable evening. Extra touches like the amuse bouche, petit fours, personalized signed anniversary menu and a staff that aims to please makes this a special place indeed.
