Proposed to my Wife Here(She accepted). In an exceptionally foodie town, Piedmont still stands out. It's not a cheap outing, but it's great for business, special occasions, or that night out where you're just dying for an awesome dinner. Everything is exhaustively locally sourced -- and delicious.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMlocalVery creative in how they combine flavors and uselocal ingredients. Open Table says "Italian infuences"; not relevant. It is a total original. Free parking across the steet, by the way.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Small portions.I'm all about reasonably sized portions, but it was restaurant week and the portions were t.i.n.y...had to send something back that was undercooked. Great-tasting food, though for me Piedmont is hit or miss. Nice atmosphere. Friendly waitstaff, but the person serving our food was not our waitress, so it was hard for her to find the tables and get the food in front of the right person.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHad not been here in a whileWe had not eaten at Piedmont in a while and visited during Triangle Restaurant Week and found it to be very good. Portions were a little small and alcoholic beverages of all types were seriously overpriced, but we assume that the portion sizes were because of the "specials" being offered for Triangle Restaurant Week.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulously fresh foodThe menu reminded me of Fearrington House...very creative and unique combinations. Everything was super fresh and delicious.
I had the Farroto and it was incredibly tasty. And the shaved broccoli was delightful too...5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Local Place!The menu is always changing so you can eat here all the time and get something different every time!
Loved the atmosphere and service was great. Also, love that what we were eating came from local farms. Food was inspired and enjoyable to eat!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Piedmont but this isI love Piedmont but this is the first time I've been since the change in ownership. Still solid but not as inventive as previous visits. Maybe this one was just off? Service was friendly and knowledgeable but little slow. Overall-still love it.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food!I've eaten at Piedmont several times, and I love the atmosphere, but most of all, the food! So fresh and well-prepared - never a disappointment.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPiedmont get's a return visitWe selected the Piedmont for two reasons; the farm-to-plate style of the food and the location close to our evening concert. The service was warm and friendly and the menu was eclectic and interesting. The tempura vegetables we had as an appetizer were great. The cheese board selections were well described, although I think the portions were undersized for the price paid. Gnocchi and the Risotto were awesome and the deserts were perfect. I had the beignets and they were just like I have had in Europe.
We did not order cocktails, beer or wine. I did read over the lists though and they are well constructed.
The layout is a little sterile but original art on the walls was nice. Overall, a great experience.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal, deliciousWonderful meal, delicious locally sourced food. Will definitely return!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood times at PiedmontOur waiter was very helpful and attentive. Fun but not "in your face" funny. A great date night out at Piedmont. We'll put it on our short(er) list for a return visit.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPiedmont embodies the locallyPiedmont embodies the locally sourced farm to table concept almost as well as any restaurant in the triangle. This low-number table spot has a variety of meals and sides that can please pasta snobs to meat-and-potatoes eaters while maintaining a reasonable bill for the group.
The most impressive parts of the menu lie in the libations, desserts, and appetizers where a bourbon-candied-cherry Manhattan and pot de creme are this diner's favorites. Other noteable selections include pickles and toast and new twists on classic Caesar and house salads.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but you may leave hungryPiedmont serves fresh farm-to-table food that is delicious and ever changing. The portions, however, are very small, so it's hard to leave here feeling full.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFun tasting menuWe choose to have the four course tasting menu. Even though it was not on the menu, I knew i wanted it from their online menu and the chef said he would do it for us! Wow! $40 for four courses - each course is a surprise and a really great value. We started with fresh bread and amazing apple butter. Then we had ceasar kale salad-That's the way to serve kale! Then we moved on to gnocchi with leek-yum. We followed with a Hereford strip steak-cooked to perfection. For dessert we had two different ones served to us- an apple pie-that was all apple served with cheddar cheese ice cream. Awesome combination. The other dessert was an ice cream sundae. Carrot cake with cream cheese ice cream and a roasted marshmallow. Great experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went after a concert, wereWe went after a concert, were promptly seated and given good service.
