Aberdeen Barn - Charlottesville Ratings and Reviews
Was on a First Date, and was stood up. The Hostess and Server were Great. Food was awesome, some noise from the waitress station and the decor needs to be updated, there was red tape on the booth upholstery that I choose. I made the best of it, I usually do not eat at high-end restaurants definitely worth the 3-hour drive. Had Regular cut Prime with Idaho baked potato and garden salad. The lesson I learned if a person is unsure the first date is going to work out make it worth your while and choose a great place to eat that way the disappointment won't matter as much. Thanks.
The food was wonderful, as always. We had escargots as an appetizer and followed it with the prime rib. Everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We were there celebrating a birthday, and got a delicious piece of cake to end the meal. The only reason I rated the service 3/5 stars was because the server made a very rude comment at the end, as we were getting ready to leave, which ruined the entire evening.
The food was good. Very traditional menu and a pleasant (also traditional) ambiance. Service was nothing special. I had told them it was my hauband’s birthday and there was no acknowledgement. It was pricey considering the entire experience. I know it has been voted a great place to go on a special occasion, but that was not our experience.
Went to dinner with my wife for her birthday. When we entered we saw that they were very busy but seated us right away due to our reservation. We met our waiter and he was very attentive throughout our whole dinner process.
My wife and I both ordered Prime ribs and they were cooked to Perfection and outstanding. I would highly recommend going if you have a mind to and we intend to be back very soon again.
Quaint yet dated steakhouse. Service is average with only one waiter for all the tables in our section and a busboy to assistant him. Blande salad. Poor quality dressing. Meat was cooked well and exactly to our order. The vegetables were overcooked and the escargot was well served but missing baguettes. We didn't stay for dessert. Overall 3 out of 5 stars.
We chose this location to celebrate my husbands birthday based on their online reviews. Our waitress Katherine was attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable. The wine list was extensive and full of variety. The food was magnificent!! We appreciated that each course was brought out with the right amount of timing so we could enjoy it and not feel rushed. The starter salads and toppings were fresh, the steaks were flavorful and cooked to perfection, and the dessert was mouthwatering. We will definitely be visiting this location again the next time we’re in town.
Christmas Eve dinner with my wife was perfect. Appetizers of Oyster Rockefeller was a little over done, but we’re very tasty and the Escargot was outstanding. Steaks a spot on prepared perfectly to our doneness and my Lobster Tail was amazing. Our side dishes of house salads and both baked and Aberdeen potatoes were also delicious. No room for desert however I can assure you it’s probably delicious as well.
We went to the Aberdeen Barn after a basketball game because my husband was craving steak. It was a lovely evening. We were seated in a spot that enabled us to hear the piano man while still feeling private. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. What more could you ask?
Excellent filet steaks. Service was great. First time dining here but had been recommended by a number of people. We live an hour from Charlottesville so are not normally there at 5:00 which is when they open. Wish they opened for lunch. Definitely a great steakhouse with a different and wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend.
