So good to go back to one of our ladies group’s favorite places!
We had a lovely birthday and father's day celebration in the elegant dining room. Service and food were far better than the last time. They've beefed up the wait staff and the food was much improved.
Another wonderful dinner at Fairview Dining Room! We have been many times and this one was as wonderful as ever. They are very good with dietary restrictions and helped us celebrate our Anniversary. Quiet dining room, excellent food, creative cocktails, and great desserts made for a lovely evening.
Exceptional food, service and overall dining experience. Will definitely be returning.
Glad to be back to inside dining. The food is reliably excellent as is the service.
The Fairview was sparsely populated as the fare was lunch, not brunch. The service is always first rate and was again. We had the turkey BLT, very good and nice sides (chowder for my wife, fresh fruit for me).
Sat outside, beautiful evening, seem a little short staffed, but overall good.
Superb as always!
Family first time in a year with our 94 yr old mom. Perfect setting.
It would be nice to have more menu choices. In addition, my guest wanted to see more vegetarian choices.
Another fantastic meal. The food is consistently good at this place, which we appreciate more than anything else. This particular meal was made perfect by outstanding service by Jose S. He presented the perfect balance of attention to detail. The service was seamless. He didn’t miss a beat with any aspect of the dining process. It’s always good to see the same level of service that we usually encounter with Nathaniel or Ponie exhibited in other servers.
Food was very nice and servers kept a nice pace to allow for an enjoyable evening
Wonderful experience all around. Look forward to returning.
Mother’s Day Dinner
The food and service were excellent! The staff always goes above and beyond to accommodate any request.
We all enjoyed our meal. The seafood dishes were perfectly cooked. The grounds of the hotel/restaurant/patio areas overlooking the golf course are beautiful.
A wonderful spot for any meal any time. A favorite of mine locally. Recommend it highly. Menu is creative, delicious. Service impeccable.
Lovely server called Teresa took great care of us. Super lunch and super time.
Made a reservation for visiting friends and they loved it!
Excellent service by Ponnie. Food and service were in line with the standard that we expect from WaDu. Nathaniel(another competent and fantastic server) recognized us and stopped by our table to say hello. The new seasonal menu is really good. In our group we had the crab cakes with the jalapeño cream sauce (delicious). The shrimp and grits, and the eggplant involving. All fantastic.
Had a great business gathering. The food was very tasty and delicious. I had the waduke chowder so yummy!. The staff was very friendly. Loved how I was welcomed into the premises. This place is really a good place for business meeting
Always a great place to have lunch or dinner. Service is top notch and food is great.
Great crab cakes
Fried Oysters were flavorful and delicious. Chowder Bowl, Winter Salad, and Angus Filet were ordinary.
Food was outstanding, as always. Service was the worse we have ever experienced here. Freddy, the server, never checked on us. Once food arrived, our guest who ordered a burger had to wait 10 minutes for ketchup while we waited. Empty plates sat at on the table for over 40 minutes. Deserted was ordered and we waited an additional 30 minutes with no one stopping by the table. I finally got up from the table and and asked another server to have the desserts packaged to go. I waited at the host stand for the bill. These matters were addressed with the manager and she listened and assured me she would address these deficiencies. When the server brought out the desserts to go, he mentioned that they were in the house. We are Platinum plus exec club members and dessert is included anyway so it was insulting that the entire meal he had not bothered to see that we had a membership. Hopefully this is a one off for this place. We truly enjoy going there but this needs to be fixed.
We're grateful for your longstanding patronage at the Fairview, and want to thank you for your feedback regarding what was obviously an unsatisfactory experience. Your observations have been shared with all members of the team as a pointed reminder that each service is experienced individually, and to reemphasize the import of our standards. We hope you will accept our sincere apology, and look forward to future occasions which will reflect our commitment to the highest standards of service.
Great service, food and drink. Special atmosphere too! 👍🏻👍🏻
Dinning room was quiet and not crowded. Everyone was wearing masks. Great food and service.
Staff was awesome and accommodating.
Wait staff was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.
Lovely but limited menu in the Fairview. Great to be back visiting this old friend and we look forward to many more meals here. First rate service provided by Nathaniel, Juan and a great assist by Teresa. All knowledgable about the menu, comfortable but professional service. Excellent wine suggestions by Nathaniel and Teresa.
Will not hesitate to come back! A very pleasant experience!
We have a group that enjoy getting together for good food and pleasant conversation Our group always likes it when we get together at Fairview Dinning Room because food is excellent and the noise level is such that even our hearing impaired can enjoy the conversation.
Excellent service, delicious food, super nice server Daniel, beautiful place.
I found the food was salty in general, though it was delicious.
One of best places to eat outside during the pandemic! Wonderful heaters as well.
Great food and excellent service. Look forward to dining there again.
Great food and service, needs a bit updating a bit to old looking.
Our meal was delicious, service was terrific, and ambiance was perfect. Great dining experience.
I made reservations with what I considered to be an upscale dining location. While the food was very good, the fire alarm that resulted in us having to go outside, and the constant flow of people wearing hoodies, athletic shorts and tennis shoes, made it feel like an expensive McDonalds. People visit fine dining restaurants for the experience of feeling like they are doing something special. Being sat directly inside the door, the fire alarm, and sports bar atmosphere sort of ruined that for us. Not what you would expect to experience with a $200 dollar meal for two people.
The dining room is beautiful, food is delicious, and service is impeccable. For a AAA 4 diamond restaurant, I don't expect to watch students in pj's, flip flops, and sweatshirts parade through the dining area the entire meal while diners are dressed up for the evening. I would visit the restaurant again but not until this is corrected.
