Been here three or four times for dinner. In the past, it has been acceptable largely due to the ambiance. The food has never been outstanding, but tonight was a disappointment for our entire party of five. Tonight, our party all described their food as disappointing. Two diners had the halibut, which was served lukewarm with mashed potatoes that were cool, two had chicken roasted with capers, also lukewarm, and the fifth (me) had the seafood stew which had potential but was overloaded with shrimp vs fish. Perhaps they try too hard, and should stick with basics. Even though we are local, it's unlikely we will revisit. Oh, and it's the most expensive restaurant in the area.

Have eaten here numerous times before but 2/11 was a disappointment. Desperately disappointed by probably the worst soup I’ve ever been served in a restaurant. Described as butternut squash soup one might expect a thick, rich, glossy bowl of soup that packed flavor. Not so, it looked and tasted like I imagine dishwater to taste. I strongly suspect that this was the prior day’s soup that was running low and was watered down to make it go further. Can’t believe that a professional chef could make something that poor. Okay so every restaurant has an off day but on sending it back to the kitchen was told that the manager had questioned the wateriness and under seasoned soup earlier in the day ..... so why try to serve it to paying customers ??? It was taken off the bill but I ended up sitting and watching my wife with her appetizer.

Excellent service but the fireplace was so smoky we asked to be moved because our eyes were burning from the smoke. The soup was excellent (mushroom). My wife had the scallops which were a little over cooked. I had the halibut which was even more over cooked. Our bill was about $125.00 which, for what we got and how well it was prepared, extremely overpriced. We probably won’t be back.

The overall dining experience was pleasurable until we left the restaurant. The waitress we had followed us out to the parking lot and demanded a higher tip be left. Her approach was aggressive and off-putting. I said I would follow up the next day with a phone call but she wanted it taken care of on the spot. In order to end this uncomfortable situation my husband quickly took more cash out of his pocket to give her, bringing her total tip to over 20 percent. We had left close to that to begin with. We both felt humiliated and somewhat bullied by her behavior. It soured our dining experience there and ruined his birthday celebration.
We have dined at wonderful and very exclusive restaurants all over the world and have never experienced a situation as this. We felt the owners should know about her inappropriate behavior.

We just went to the Golden Pheasant for New Year's Eve. I've heard such wonderful things about this restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful but the food is not. My husband and I feel like we took our hard earned $300 and flushed it down the toilet. The soups were pretty good but that's it really. The salad we got had wilty lettuce and the balsamic dressing was so acidic it felt like my mouth was burning. The filet was so peppery you couldn't taste anything else on the dish. The worst of all was the desserts. The chocolate cake was so old. It must have been frozen and thawed out. It was so dry and crumbly. I really don't like leaving bad reviews but I just couldn't help it this time. Especially since we spent so much money.

Worst food we have had in a while. Very unlike our first experience. The steak was thin and yet raw in the middle. It would have been disappointing in a Bonanza steak house. The fish was cold. It felt like they were economizing on the ingredients so I don't give them long if this is in any way not an unusual experience.

We have friends we go to pre-Christmas brunch with for forty years now. Last year we tried this place and really liked it so did a repeat.
We all agreed the service, while friendly, was a little slow. The food was really delicious but I was surprised they actually served my lemon torte cake with a bite's worth missing from the bottom. When I expressed my surprise the server said, "I guess that's how it was cut." I sent it back for a full piece but then it was not very good which was too bad. The server was a nice young man and was trying his best.
Oh - also - we were obviously decked out in our Christmas red and greens feeling quite jolly and they first went to seat us in the drab room on the right, albeit with a nice working fireplace - but just plain and unfestive. So we requested and got a table in the bright dining room on the left which has Christmas greenery, a decorated tree, a fire, etc.
Bottom line - while we wanted to love it again we all agreed we would try someplace else next year even though the food was good and the people nice. Just missed for us this year.

A nice evening at the Golden Pheasant. They have their holiday decorations up, and a real fire in the fireplace. Oysters were excellent, cocktails top notch, as was the service.

As first time guests, we loved the restaurant, the food and the staff! It is a beautiful scenic location worth traveling to, quaint with class. The oysters were so fresh, the escargot tender and garlicky, the salads crisp and flavorful and the entrees superb. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the turkey dinner was delicious. But the Brussel sprouts could have been cooked a little more. The pumpkin cheesecake was divine and the lemon ginger ice cream was exquisite. Martinis were made just right and the service was first class! Overall, fantastic!!

We love this place. However the last couple of times our food has been served warm to cool not hot. I don't understand why this is an issue. We were disappointed this trip.

Good was underwhelming. I had the lamb shake which was way too dried out so would not suggest it. My wife had the halibut which was very good. The dessert was very nice.
