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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
