    We were at Cross Keys for Sunday brunch. Several of us ordered the Greek Salad with kabob chicken. It was excellent. However, I forgot to have the salad dressing on the side and it was too heavily dressed for me. Several others thought it was just right. Next time, I will order the dressing on the side. The French toast burger was huge. My friend thought the burger was delicious, but the thick toast was a bit too much. The ambiance is lovely.

    Delicious meal! Wedding party came through the bistro, which seemed odd to me. I would have thought they’d figure out a better way to take them outside than to disrupt the diners. Still a lovely experience overall. Crosskeys is stunning!

    Great waitress, good atmosphere. Food was good for the most part, for the occasion. Chairs very uncomfortable and for many of the folks, were not sturdy and were wobbly. Would have been nice to have higher end seating to match the rest of the location.

    Service was excellent. Everyone was very attentive to our needs. It is a large room so it can get noisy when some of the tables have large gatherings. Food was very good. I did have a problem with my fish not being fully cooked (accidents happen), but everyone was apologetic and corrected it with a fresh and fully cooked piece of fish. The flavor of all the dishes was exceptional.

    Amazing dining experience with unique food options and friendly staff. Portion sizes were a little small, but that's to be expected with fine dining. The only comment I'd have on the food was the chocolate fondue was a bit generic (no unique twists or flavors), everything else was uniquely favored and I would highly recommend.

    Experienced the three-course Valentines special meal. The lamb lollipops were amazing--seasoned, cooked and presentation was perfection. The tenderloin was delicious and the milk chocolate and pistachio fondu was an excellent finale to an overall wonderful meal.

    Throughly enjoyed the evening. Our table of seven enjoyed the food and our steak special was done to perfection as ordered. Our server, Meredith was fantastic and Jimmy O played the oldies that the audience was enjoying based on the sing along observations. Great job one again to all the staff in the bistro and tasting room.

Dining room was set up very nicely and had a wonderful view looking out over the vineyard. Highly recommended to enjoy brunch or dinner wine a nice glass of wine!

    This was a very disappointing choice for our family of 4 celebrating our anniversary weekend. Scheduled in advance for a Saturday dinner at 5, once arrived and ready to order we were then told that several items were unavailable. My husbands choice of Ribeye steak, my son's burger....not available. Essentially the only protein they did seem to have available was Salmon, not my boys' preference when we expected other choices. With an already limited menu (which is typically a good sign), they had nothing left to choose from so we left paying for drinks only. I had looked forward to this special occasion dinner only to leave let down. The only positive is the wine flight was nice, I would possibly return for the wine but not to the restaurant.

    We celebrated our daughter's college graduation at Cross Keys during the afternoon. We not only enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere, but the wine was delicious, and our meals were excellent too. The staff was attentive and checked in often to see if we needed anything, even though it was a busy day with many people celebrating. We would definitely return again!

    The ambiance at Cross Keys is perfect for a nice affair. The round tables make it easy to chat with others and is a very festive environment. We all ordered different meals. The rueben was HUGE and the fries are great curly steak fries. Burgers were also draped with large slices of Canadian bacon which got rave reviews. The chicken kebobs were also a hit. The salmon was a bit "peppery" but cooked well. Our server, Kat, was excellent with a fun, bubbly demeanor and was very attentive. We highly recommend and will be back!

    This was advertised as a fireside live music venue. Instead we were seated in a large room that felt like a wedding reception venue. If you wanted a wine flight you had to get it yourself in another area and bring it back to your table. Food was like a mediocre country club. Music was nice and staff was great in the restaurant. Wine staff were not as nice. Overall disappointing. Lovely on the outside.
