Fearrington House Restaurant
From partnerships with local farms, including Duckwood Farms and Heritage Farms, to vegetables and herbs harvested from gardens on property, to dishes that celebrate North Carolina’s four distinct seasons, The Fearrington House’s mission to provide Relais & Chateaux level cuisine and service to guests has remained constant since opening in 1980.
Our menu is complemented by a beverage program featuring an extensive wine list, a fully-equipped bar, cocktails with local ingredient and beers celebrating North Carolina breweries. The beverage program is overseen by Beverage Director Paula de Pano.
The restaurant was amazing, from the custom menu for our anniversary, to the waiter, and the amazing food! This was an amazing experience, that I would love to do again some time!
Hello we came for my mother’s 70th birthday. We are returning guests. The food was not very good. Everything was sweet and prepared in the same style. Also my red grouper was hard. It was very disappointing and not sure if we will return as the bill was expensive with wine pairing.
Delicious meal. Outstanding service.
Fantastic experience ,great restaurant with knowledgeable staff along with private intense setting . It was our anniversary (12th year) I am extremely happy I selected this restaurant for the occasion
Wonderful time at Fearrington House. The only thing I’d like to see is the pace of the dining experience be a little faster.
Very poor value. Food was OK, but really not great and certainly not worth the price-in my opinion.
Waiter and staff were excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Food was just not that good
It's definitely ridiculously, laughably overpriced, but the food and service are outstanding, so you just chalk it up to a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If there's a way to eat here and get someone else (such as your employer) to pay for it, I 100% recommend that!
Each course was better than the course before it. This food experience is the best I’ve ever had.
I chose Fearrington House to celebrate my daughter-in-laws 50th birthday. I wanted an elegant but relaxed experience for her and our party of 4. Service by Derek (I believe that is correct) was absolutely perfect with the bonus of his wonderful personality. The evening was everything I wanted it to be - even more. Everyone raves about their courses. Nothing could have improved on our dining pleasure. Elegant and comfortable! Simply splendid! Thank you to all who made it so!!
Bar was cozy and great place to start or even stay for dinner. Found the Hamachi and Foie Gras first course to be wonderful. Between was all served with perfect Cadence by our Waiter Cody. Dont forgo the Souffle.
Definitely an experience. Food was fantastic as was the service. Plan on staying a while though, took us over 2 hours to get through all the courses. Makes a fantastic date night.
It has been about 10 years since my wife and I have eaten at the Fearrington House. Still amazing food and service. Certainly a great place for a special event or dinner.
The dining experience at the Fearrington House was truly exceptional. We had the four course dinner and each plate was exquisitely prepared and presented. This was a unique dining experience that I highly recommend.
Food and presentation and service were outstanding. We were seated in a small room with three other tables. The Acoustics were such that we felt like we were all part of one big conversation and there was no privacy. Some type of dividers or plantings or acoustic tiling would help. This was a distraction.
Awesome food and terrific service! If you are looking for a memorable evening and exquisite cuisine, look no further.
This was an evening to remember! Food was delicious. creatively and beautifully plated! The layers of flavor and texture were pleasures to the palate! The service was hospitable and knowledgeable! Just what you would expect from the Fearrington House!!! Bravo!!!!
Excellent inventive food, stellar service an ideal atmosphere for time with friends or family. Just a little extra rich.
Fantastic restaurant. Chef’s menu is a dining experience not to be missed. Very expensive so it is a special occasion place for sure. Derek our waiter was excellent and had a great sense of humor.
One of the best meals I have had in the last 2 years. Excellent service!
The property is charming. Our dishes were creative and excellent. The wine list was impressive. The table service was very professional. There were a few nice touches like a gift bag with goodies to go.
But there was a lack of attention to details in a few ways that surprised me for an upscale restaurant.
Nobody was present to welcome us when we walked in. After a couple of mins, we decided to sit at a table in the bar area to order a drink, since we arrived 30 mins before our dinner reservation. Even though there was only one other couple present,, we waited about 10 mins before the barman took our order and then another 10 mins before he brought our drinks. I was very pleased with my cocktail.
Our table had a candle bowl containing a dead votive when we sat down. Our waiter didn't notice or offer to replace it at any point during the meal.
After dinner, there was no towel left to dry my hands in the ladies restroom, so I used the last couple of Kleenex instead. Then we waited a few minutes in the lobby before a waiter offered to bring our coats.
I would easily overlook these details at a more affordable restaurant.
Outstanding service! Staff always makes us feel special. The chef always exceeds our expectation. We are foodies and our meal was off the charts. Delicious, beautiful presentation, outstanding flavors. Can’t wait for our next visit!
Amazing all I have to say
Another excellent dining experience at the Fearrington! Will be back.
The evening was an incredible experience with my husband.
This has been my go-to for the last 5 birthday celebrations. My good friend from Liverpool was thrilled! A very fun time and very attentive staff.
The atmosphere was amazing - beautiful dining room, incredibly quiet. The service we received was also excellent. The food is unique and delicious. Our main concerns were that the main courses for my husband and I both arrived almost cold. I can understand that it is hard to time out piping-hot food but eating cold meat (steak and veal) was not what I expected from such a nice establishment.
Christmas Eve dinner was lovely. While the room was on the chilly side, the service and food more than made up for it. I will return in warmer weather in order to tour the building and grounds.
A truly enjoyable dining experience!
We have been to the Fearrington on numerous special occasions and it had been amazing but this time we were sadly disappointed. A couple of the dishes were one note or overpowered by a single flavor, and our main course took a very long time to arrive and it arrived cold. They brought another entree but it wasn’t very warm either and the steak was chewy... they took care of most of our bill, which was nice but not sure we will be back soon.
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner celebrating my wife’s 48th birthday. Fearrington House Inn is a wonderful place for special occasions.
Every dinner at Ferrington is special. The service is always exquisite and the food is outstanding.
Our recent dining experience to celebrate my wife's birthday was rather disappointing, and did not come close to meeting expectations of a five star, Relais and Chateaux establishment, with a very high price-point. My main course of beef rib eye was not available rare as I wanted it, so had to settle for medium rare. The meat was not good...tougher than expected, and lacking flavor, and served with very runny whipped potatoes that were served lukewarm at best (which I chose not to eat), even though when telling the server he offered to provide a replacement that was hot. My wife's striped bass contained a large bloodline in the portion, which should have been trimmed out. Certainly not the quality or value of a renowned chef; perhaps that was his day off. We have dined here several times and with this disappointment, needless to say, this has been our last dining experience at The Fearrington House.
The food was super delicious, the service impeccable! The only thing amiss was the cocktails we ordered right as we sat down took 100 years (15 minutes in restaurant time). No big deal in the scheme of an entire absolutely gorgeous dinner!!
Food was unusually poor, especially entrees
Perfect service and delicious food. A fabulous experience, as always!
The entire meal was amazing with multiple extra small courses during the 3 course meal. The chocolate soufflé was shockingly over the top and left us planning a return trip for our next anniversary!
They went above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and to make my birthday special
Beautiful house with professional staff. Started great but ended bad. We were the second party at the restaurant. As soon as the restaurant began to fill up, service stopped. Our main course took over 30 minutes from the second course and arrived cold.
Excellence is when the food, service and experience come together like a symphony. When a restaurant doesn’t deliver all three cohesively at this price point, it becomes pretension.
Special occasion event, food was fantastic and service was outstanding, enjoyed the wine pairing and explanation with each one.
