A word from Renault Winery Gourmet Restaurant
Dinner at the Gourmet Restaurant at Renault is an event to remember. The innovative menu invites diners to choose one of six exquisitely prepared entrees, while the executive chef complements their meals with the evening’s special appetizer, homemade soup, pasta, ice-cold sorbet intermezzo, gourmet salad and two wine samplings, adding an element of adventure and surprise. Two wine samplings also come with your meal. Renault Gourmet offers a full bar of beer, wine and spirits. For those who like to indulge their taste buds with Sunday brunch, the Gourmet Restaurant at Renault does not disappoint. Visitors are offered a choice between twelve to sixteen brunch entrees, ranging from popular egg dishes to quiche to tenderloin tips. While their entrées are being individually prepared, diners are free to enjoy an extravagant buffet of homemade pastries, fine cheeses, fresh salads, pastas, a carving station and desserts under the gazebo.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We had brunch at the restaurant many times and always loved it. They were the only brunch where you ordered your entree and then picked other food from the buffet. It was WONDERFUL. Now they have changed it and they are like all other brunches. You pick your food from the buffet. Please bring back the other way."

  • "Very good food. Need to change up the wines that are served. Seems to be the same all the time. Seated us next to the buffet superhighway. There is a opening that funnels people from an adjacent room and puts them almost in your lap. Very little privacy. Felt like we were having brunch with 30 strangers. This should be fixed. Otherwise it was nice."

  • "A brunch buffet in the center of this small gazebo-like area. No one knew which end to start or finish and this left you constantly trying to navigate through others diners. Awkward. The champagne is added to a punch concoction served in miniature (tiny) classes. We asked for a glass of their blueberry champagne and paid extra for that per glass. This champagne was very good and we enjoyed it very much. Good Food -roast beef, steak and eggs (pay extra for this), waffles. Bad Food - omelettes, pasties, bagels like cardboard. Pasta and chicken, not great. Gourmet Restaurant? Maybe that only applies to their dinner menu, anyway I won't be finding out. Don't go on a hot summer day. They had the air conditioning either off or all the way down."

  • "We had brunch before and really loved it. This time however I was actually quite disappointed. Although the restaurant was not busy, we were put at a table very close to other tables which made us all feel very bunched together and crowded. There was clearly room to spread people out for comfort. The buffet was not as nice as it had been a year before, some of the food was pretty over cooked, and there was only one meat at the carving table. Also, even though the price was the same, we were not given the option to chose an entree from the menu which had always been the case previously. Overall, I went in thinking this would be a tradition, to spend our anniversary having this brunch. When I left, that thought had left my head completely."

  • "The winery is in an out-of-the-way location that feels special. The restaurant is charming with great food & wine selections. The service has always been excellent. We have been making the trip for special celebration occasions for the last 5 years and always say to ourselves afterwards, that was very pleasant - we'll do it again!"

  • "Seven people were in our party, and all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful ambiance, delicious food, and superior service we received at the Gourmet restaurant at Renault Vineyards. We had the inclusive three course lunch, which was priced very reasonably for a restaurant of this caliber. I had a taste of everyone's entree and all were superb. Soft live piano music rounded out afabulous experience all around. This is a "do not miss" restaurant for any foodie or fine dining lover. I only wish I didn't live so far away."

  • "In the past the restaurant used to serve 6 courses and give more wine samples. Now its 4 courses and only 1 wine sample. I'd rather pay a little more and get a little more. I was also disappointed that a shrimp and crab appetizer included only one shrimp and less than a teaspoon of crab meat. Although the atmosphere is nice, the food tastes good, and the service is great, its just not as special as it used to be. I probably wont go back again. Maybe I'll try Joseph's some time instead."

  • "From start to finish due to slow kitchen it took 2 1/2 hours for our meal....which obviously was prepared hours earlier. The shrimp was as if it were dried fruit. No flavor. Rice extremely over cooked. Pasta warm at best. Had to beg anyone for even a roll basket. Terrible and initially I made arrangements for the buffet and here it was inside. OK....but never again. "

  • "Our first experience at this restaurant and I am not a gourmet but we wanted something special and boy did we find it. It seems old world, elegant but not stuffy. The food was just perfect. Prior to dinner, I had a private talk with our waitress about wine. The she worked with the staff to provide us exactly what each person wanted. They had samples which I did not try. As we ate, a singer with the best voice I have heard, Jennifer Camillo, sang and it seemed like a dream. My wife was so pleased and our daughter and her husband really enjoyed themselves. My wife sat in the flared wicker back chair making her the special person. We will definitely return with guest and enjoy this food."

  • "Went for a romantic dinner and was disappointed. The service was so slow and it was very empty. The food was ok and the drink special "cherry bomb" was terrible. We would not go back again especially for the prices."

  • "We were a party of 3 women over 50 on March 30, 2014. The food was very good. We ordered Eggs Benedict and it was prepared to our specifications. We enjoyed the buffet with salads, cheeses, additional sides, etc. There was a variety of desserts as well. I am not really a dessert person but I did have the cream puffs. The outside was a bit crunchy and there was very little cream inside. I would not recommend them. I also did have the apple dessert which I enjoyed. We also had the blueberry champagne punch which was very enjoyable! We all enjoyed so much that we all purchased 2 bottle each of the blueberry champagne at the gift shop. The dining music enjoyable however the music did not match the venue. We are big on that."

  • "I recommend taking in the whole package. We did the tour, the tasting and the dinner. Everything was first class. The food is not for the plain eater though. You have to be willing to try new things. There are about 5 main dishes to chose from. Usually you can find the menu on the website. Reservations were easy to make on-line or by phone. The entire staff is very accommodating. Even the entertainment was good. The singer was great; not too loud not to soft. Her selection was varied for all ages."

  • "We were not pleased with the limited selection of entrees or the inability to make even the smallest changes to customize the food to our individual taste. Would not eat here again."

  • "This was our second time here and we did not realize it was the last night of Atlantic City Restaurant Week. Our food was good and nicely presented but our waitress was either overbooked or had other issues. My husband had cioppino and I had shrimp and crab bucatini. Appetizers were a crab cake for him with fennel slaw but it was fried. I had a shrimp and crab cocktail. We both had desserts and we believe they were from an outside source not homemade. Excellent busboy. What killed it for is was the nearly 30 minute wait for our check. We finally took the bill with us and paid it at the hostess stand. We were never offered a second cup of coffee. No cell service. Food good, service not. No fruit desserts."

  • "Renault is my absolute favorite place for specialty dining. This evening was an exception. My filet was not cooked to my taste. I ordered it well done. I suggested that it should be butterflied so that it would be cooked through. It was not. I did send it back, and I assumed that I would get the same steak back cooked more well done. However, I received another filet cooked even less than the first. I ate a few bites, and took the rest home for someone else to eat it. It was so very disappointing because it is my very favorite place to eat and because it was so costly."

  • "Went to this restaurant for valentine's day - made reservation for 9pm and were seated 30mins later. The bar had horrible service - seems the bartenders were rattled by the amount of guests and didn't attend to us well. We sat for 10mins just waiting for a menu to order. Our waiter was fabulous and really sweet. Gave us complimentary wine and presented my girlfriend with flowers to the table which I ordered before dinner. I was glad to find out that sending flowers to the restaurant via opentable was from local florists. They had a singer which did a couple of nice sets, we even got in a dance in the middle of a mostly elderly crowd I was glad we did we got to be ourselves and no one bothered us."

It is a unique dining experience and now offer both 3 course( with one wine pairing) and 7 course(with 2 wine pairings) dinner options on Saturday."

  • "It is difficult to find the words to describe out recent dinner here. The food was other worldly and the kitchen more than willing to accommodate any special needs. Our server was simply topnotch and one of those servers who make you want to come back all by him/her self. Side booths are romantic if that is what you are seeking, however the entire restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. Can't wait to return even knowing that the wine portion of the experience is not what we would like."

  • "The first thing my husband and I noticed was the ambiance of the restaurant. It is very romantic and decorated beautifully. The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter was so nice and never kept us waiting. We will definitely return and will recommend it to our family and friends. We especially loved the booth we were in. It was very private for conversation and the overhead music was wonderful"

  • "This was our second time here . The first time was amazing the buffet was to die for and our meals were just as good . Our second time we brought my parents and the buffet again was great but the first time was still better : really disappointed with our meals -dads was dry , my frittatia was literally not edible burnt and dried out and no cheese we had to send it back . My husbands steak and eggs was a joke the tiniest piece of steak ever we actually thought it was a joke ! It was over cooked and he ordered it medium rare ! We will give it another shot because the first time was so great ."

  • "We had a party of 8 and no one liked their food, including the person who simply had bacon and eggs. The poached eggs on the benedict were overcooked. The "pork roll" was a thin piece of ham. The spanish omelet was terrible. The chorizo slices were hard and had no flavor. Couldn't find the cheese, salsa or black beans. Everything was served lukewarm including the coffee. Big disappointment."

  • "We went for Brunch......server took order or entrees, asked that it not be served quickly so that we could enjoy the buffet. Well, the entrée did come out to soon and we could not entirely enjoy the buffet. I believe that it was this way so that the restaurant made sure their costs were down........ Would I go again, no."

  • "This is the fourth time my family and I dined at your restaurant for our Thanksgiving Day dinner. We were really disappointed in your cut backs to the course dinner, only one sample glass of wine? (for a winery?) Our waiter was rude and rushing us.......Our family wanted to dine and converse, that was hard to do when we were being rushed. Needless to say we will not recommend your establishment again to other friends and relatives, as we had done in the past."
