Our menu is complemented by a beverage program featuring an extensive wine list, a full cocktail bar, and beers celebrating North Carolina breweries. The wine and liquor program are overseen by Food & Beverage Director Todd Chatterton.

    First timers at FarmingtonHouse restaurant and we loved the 3 hour, well timed dining experience. Definitely worth the 1 month wait to get a reservation. It was my husband’s birthday and we tried the 6 course tasting. Each course was prepared and executed perfectly. Our server C.J. was attentive and friendly. Perfect fit for this dining experience.

    I give this restaurant five stars. We just recently moved here from Alexandria, VA and had some great restaurants there and in nearby areas. However, my husband and I both agree that the Fearrington House restaurant is the best restaurant all around that we have ever experienced.

    It was our 30th anniversary and our children surprised us with this amazing culinary experience. The Fearrington House is in our top ten of all time meals. The Salmon Appetizer and the Potato Leek soup first course was perfectly prepared. For the main course, the Pheasant was so tender and prepared perfectly. The Beef was very succulent and flavorful. The Soufflé and Lemon tart were the perfect end to what was a wonderful experience. The Bourbon selection at the Fearrington House is the best in the state! The selection, was so amazing that we tried several of their hard to find Bourbons and skipped the wine pairing. Our server, Raquel, timed the meal perfectly, answered all of our questions, and created the perfect experience for us. We will definitely be going back!

    The food started out amazing. The first two courses were excellent then it got a little weird. The wine pairing was terrible. They have an incredible wine list and yet there is nothing special or interesting about the mediocre wines they pour. The food overshadowed the wine by far but when you are paying $80 for 3 pairings, you expect it to be something memorable and interesting and it absolutely was not.

    Amazing experience, incredible vegetarian food. I don't usually go fine-dining, my tongue would love that but my bank account wouldn't, but it was surreal how much of food I've been missing out on. Best food / wine I've ever had. This is truly an experience like going to a theme park or staying in an amazing hotel. Definitely something to put on your bucket list.

    The food was wonderful, the service was exceptional. An incredible dining experience. We ordered the four course meal and each course was remarkable. Todd was our waiter and he seemed to be always available yet never overbearing. The courses were spaced very comfortably leaving time for intimate dinner conversation. We also had the wine pairings which were a real treat - sometimes familiar, but more often new, sometimes surprising but always a delicious complement to the food. The entire experience was relaxed and comfortable and luxurious. We were seated in a small room with only a couple other parties. The building is an old farmhouse and has a number of small dining rooms, which contributes to this feeling of intimacy - as if we were the only parties in the place. An almost magical combination of excellent food, service and space.

    We have dined here a few times, and I am always so pleased with the excellent food that they serve. I have many food allergies and intolerances, and they are always happy (I think) to accommodate me. :) Elegant, upscale restaurant (make sure to dress appropriately) and a quiet atmosphere. Beautiful grounds and Inn, professional and friendly staff.

    It would have been great had the hostess not only left us waiting for our table (and promised drinks) for over 20 minutes and then almost ruining a surprised engagement by taking my then boyfriend outside to discuss the plan with him in front of me. I knew something was up as soon as she took him outside to "talk" and he had to come up with a story when he came back in so that I wouldn't know. I immediately did and unfortunately that took away from some of the surprise. It is still a beautiful venue for photographs but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again. The food is mildly weird/stuffy for a restaurant. I "get it" but our $250 meal would have been better spent on food we enjoyed. No knock to the chef, they did a great job, don't get me wrong, but it just wasn't our taste. If you want fancy French, by all means, but this isn't Vin Rouge and not what was expected. Still salty over the engagement surprise ruin, i guess.

    Very expensive for what you get. My husband waited and waited for his beer and sparkling water. first course was frozen salmon and 2 of us sent it back. No one came to table to apologize or anything. Other 2 courses were good. They didn’t take the salmon off the bill and it was Waaaayyyy too expensive for the food we got. Pretty place but Not worth the money at all!

    Disappointing evening at this Relais restaurant because of the main course. Everything else was great- service, especially but all the little extras from amuse-bouche to pre-dessert to the petiifore gift box we left left were very nice. I’m like venison and didn’t appreciate its late removal from the menu replaced by duck. I had the duck but found it too rare and fatty for my taste. Also disappointed there was no fish entree to select which is something not encountered at other restaurants of this quality. I’d only recommend with some reservations about menu.
