The Goodstone Inn & Estate Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Took my wife here for her birthday dinner and it was fantastic. We had a great time, we ordered the "tasting menu" combined with the wine pairing, and it was a great choice. We got to try things on the menu we probably normally would never order paired with wines by their sommelier (Stephen) and it was excellent. Great ambiance and Aimee even gave us a short tour of the inn afterwards. Staff and service were spot on, made my wife feel special on her day and we had the best time. We'll definitely be back. Thanks again.
A very good New Year's Eve meal. However we were seated on the balcony (more like a corridor with wait staff and people going by all the time and the door to another room being constantly opened) just above the dining room and very much felt that we were not part of the New Year's Eve experience. Unless you can be sure of being seated in the main room then I would not recommend this restaurant for a New Year's Eve meal.
Delicious food and very sweet hospitality. The wait staff was so kind. They accommodated my vegetarian request and gave us a perfect table, noting my request, which I know is hard to do, and cannot always be accommodated. I do wish the restaurant was a little more quiet/romantic. Food was very good and beautifully presented.
Our dining experience was sub par. For nearly $500 for 2 I honestly just expect better all around. The setting is lovely but the Inn at Little Washington or Trummer's on Main are by FAR better options for a meal.
The food was on the bland end of the scale, to the point where I'd say it was under seasoned. My pork was cooked to the point where the steak knife was laughably unable to make a dent in my main course. And we were repeatedly ignored by the sommelier. Granted, being in my mid 30's did mean I was on the younger side of the diners, but at the end of the day a high end customer is a high end customer. Everyone deserves good service at this price point.
I took a chance and didn't believe the reviews saying that this establishment had seen better days. Don't make the same mistake I did.
We were placed at the nice table, which was located near the wood-burning fireplace to celebrate our Christmas of two. The view was amazing through the windows: piece of nature from the excessive hill. The high glass ceiling provided a bright light to a huge dinning room of the restaurant. Romantic ambiance with magnificent furniture and impressive decorations made the dinning room of the restaurant delirious. The service was delivered by well trained and informed people with smiles, friendly dialogue, and manners. Nourishment was outstanding: it started from the bowl of exquisite flavor of chest nut soup, continued with sprout salad, a delicate meat entree, and ended with a piece of desert, which probably was made with fine ingredients. The process of getting each meal after another one is well organized by the service of the restaurant. Nice atmosphere, great menu, excellent service. We both will come back soon.
The new dining room is lovely.. need some tablecloth on the table tho.. when I go to a place of a certain dining experience at this price level I expect at the minimum some tablecloths on those wooden table..more elegant and more chic. The cooking of my filet mignon was asked medium rare and came out medium.. but it was still delicious. The crème brûlée was not so good.. this was my at least 5 time there.. no as good as some other time.
The setting of the Inn was beautiful especially with the light dusting of snow covering the grounds. The food was good the service could improve. Our server was very distracted and the coffee cup in the morning was dirty. Also the Somm didn't seem to want to bother with us. On recommendation he only asked about our budget which seemed somewhat rude. Either way, we'll be back as the Inn is beautiful for a romantic getaway.
We received a gift card for Christmas and decided to use it. Although the restaurant was lovely, the staff very friendly, service excellent, I felt it was way overpriced for what you received. If you just want a quiet dinner and don't mind expense at all, then you might enjoy this restaurant. For my main course, I ordered the filet, and the presentation was beautiful, but the steak was not tender and the tablespoon of mashed potatoes was not hot. Because the person who gave us the gift card was dining with us, I did not tell the waitress of my complaint.
Had not visited in several years since an unfortumate kitchen problem had had a negative effect on what should have been a special occasion. This time, a superlative dining experience. Best food and wine pairings I've had since dining in Paris at a 2 star Michelin restaurant. Chef and somelier top notch. The new addition is wonderful. Light and airy but with great acoustics. Recommending it to all my friends and will be back.
The food was ok. The price was fair. The new "conservatory" has an open kitchen design so the noise of clattering dishes, running water and pots and pans was way too loud - not the intimate ambiance of the old Goodstone. Lastly, the service was simply outstanding from the waitress to the bartender to the "concierge." However due to overall assessment, the ok food and especially the noise, we will not be back anytime soon.
Beautiful surroundings, excellent menu. They accomodated my nut allergy very graciously and well. Started with tuna nicoise which was lovely but quite tasteless in spite of few olive crumbs. No seasoning or dressing on potatoes, will not order again. Husband loved his rabbit and pistachio terrine.
He had the beef with mushrooms, perfect! I loved my crisp skinned rockfish in an acitic delicious broth.
Great crusty bread and sweet butter. Thank you for not adding honey or salt or truffle to the butter!
Dessert was. a key lime. Heesecake and chocolate something for husband. We wanted to lick the plates!
Service good but wrong ordered delivered and wine not poured. Othwise we enjoyed our experience very much and will return
Big changes here for the lovely Goodstone Inn. If you haven't been here in a while you might want to come back to check it out. Renovations, new menu which is outstanding, professional and welcoming staff. Menu is interesting and appealing. Total experience is fantastic.
My wife and I have dined at the Goodstone several times. The food, service, and ambience have been excellent every time. The renovated dining room is wonderful - light and airy; more space between tables; cozy fireplace in the dining room; tasteful decor. Stephen, as always was the consummate sommelier, welcoming us back and advising on the right wine for our food. We had the striploin; the black truffle butter was a delicious complement!
Love the ambiance and the new addition for dining! Absolutely stunning! Love the drive through the countryside to get there. The food was wonderful, with a limited but outstanding menu and excellent wine list. Can't wait to go back! The maitre d' is a very friendly , knowledgeable and caring person.
I don’t write reviews often, but this place deserves a great one. I experienced above and beyond service. The grounds are beautiful - if it’s not too dark, I recommend getting there early to walk around a bit, and after dinner, go upstairs to the bar to sit by the fire place. As far as food selection, I strongly recommend the duck breast if it’s on the menu. It’s pricey, but for my special occasion, it was memorable.
Dined here Friday 10/06 for our Anniversary. They have changed chefs and the food is definitely not what it used to be - the new addition is lovely, though if the weather is inclement those who cannot do stairs will have to walk outside to reach the restaurant. The soup was sent back by not only my husband but several other guests. The maitre'd was rude. We are very sorry to lose a place we have gone to for years to celebrate holidays and special occasions.
First time in their new downstairs dining room. Good size space and nice fire place. The sommelier, Stephen, is excellent! Fantastic craft cocktail and wine pairing throughout the dinner. The menu was small but I understand they were in the process of changing it. Still there was something for everyone.
I have dined at the Goodstone Inn many times and have always had a fine experience. This time was no exception per se. However, unbeknownst to us, they have recently undergone a major reconstruction and the main dining room is now in a different location in the building. When we entered the restaurant from the front door of the building, there was nobody to greet us. The dining room was completely empty yet the tables were set, etc. so we figured other guests had not arrived yet. We waited about 5 minutes, and then I went to look for someone to escort us to our "reserved" table. Much to my surprise, the employee (who by the way was not exactly the friendliest) said, "oh our restaurant is downstairs now (like we were supposed to know this)." So she walked us down the steps to the newly constructed dining room. There was one other couple when we were seated. Needless to say, it was a bit odd. Four people in a huge dining space. anyway, we were seated at a corner table. Our server greeted us, and we inquired about what had happened to the restaurant. Our server explained the situation, and was very informative, etc. The food was excellent, service was great, but the room's temperature was very very cold; almost uncomfortable, but I dealt with it. We met the chef; very nice and hospitable. So one might ask, what's the downside? Well it's more of a suggestion. Even if the night we were there was Day 2 of the "soft" opening, there should have been some directional information on the door at the front of the building, or someone present to escort us. We had reservations, so frankly, someone should have been looking out for the guests. It was very disconcerting. We will return to Goodstone again, I'm sure. And, I am hoping that these kinks will be "fixed" over the next few weeks. And, we hope that the chef will expand the menu as there were only three entree choices -- none of which were vegetarian.
Small, intimate restaurant which explains why we had to book so far in advance. Well worth the wait! Menu was chef selection, so only a handful of starters, entrees, and deserts. Would have ordered everything on the menu if it were more than the two of us. A great culinary experience. Wine list is impressive and full of high quality wines.
A country inn and restaurant that is very welcoming, has excellent service, delicious food (I had a delicious halibut, preceded by a also delicious soup and a nice fresh salad and ending with a homemade strawberry shortcake. Splendid! Also a great bottle of wine. A not-inexpensive evening, but a wonderful one.
