I went for restaurant week during lunch time. The place is beautiful and the service exceptionally amazing. The food was so-so, but just for my tastes. The dishes were beautifully presented, see pictures. So, I usually eat my food the way the chef intended, but I thought it was a little bland here. There were some young people dining, but most of the clientele are much older. Still, I would go back. I had a great experience.

My friend and I were looking for a fine-dining evening with relative quiet in an elegant setting....and we got it! We were seated in a semicircular booth so we felt like we were almost private. The wait staff were especially courteous and attentive without hovering. All-in-all, it was a totally satisfying evening.

The noise was nearly overwhelming; hard to hear over loud conversation and a piano. Television screens with football on every wall like a sports bar were distracting and degraded other attempts to appear upscale. Food was good, but not great, and expensive.

Outstanding. The only "negative" is that the ambiance was less formal than I remembered. The menu did not include all that is shown within the dining website. A bit disconcerting for a high end restaurant to have burgers on the menu. However, the meals we had were outstanding.

When we visited Fairview a few months ago, we had service issues. When we visited in December, I was so impressed with the service and food. January, for a special occasion, it seemed to take forever to get our drinks, bread, salad and meal. There were 5 of us and even though there were several round tables to accommodate our group comfortably, we were sat at a three quarters table where we were on top of each other. We initially had to stop folks to get water refills. Since the booking was identified as a birthday, I would have assumed the waiter, or someone would have mentioned it and found out who was celebrating a birthday. Then when presenting the birthday dessert, it would have been presented to the correct person. The table next to us had issues too so I'm guessing it was just not a bonus night at Fairview. We will try it one more time.

We spent New Year’s Eve at Fairview, and it was so memorable. The special menu was exquisite. It was so creative, and all the courses were cooked to perfection. We loved the elegant ambiance, and the service was amazing. The piano music was very enjoyable. Fairview is truly wonderful.
