We visited Harriman’s for an early celebration of our anniversary. Everything was spectacular!

Wonderful food and outstanding service. Every course was better than the next. The rainbow carrots in ginger sauce was amazing! Very enjoyable. Great atmosphere.

The restaurant was so loud and the acoustics so poor that we could hear the conversations of others bouncing off the walls but not hear each other. We pId $50 or so per entree (though you can order for less) to sit listening to other people. At one point a woman even yelled “Are you f$&ing kidding me.” Our child was there and better behaved than that person. It made for a stressed evening because any time I wanted to communicate to my family they thought I was yelling at them. Also, we aren’t older with hearing problems. We are well under 50.

Fix the acoustics, insist on proper behavior by patrons, or expect that people will not return.

The overall service was impeccable but the food left a lot to be desired. Had a rough time with the Kansas NY Strip steak, was lacking all around in quality of meat and taste. Once brought to the attention of the Manager, she promptly removed it from the bill. Also had breakfast there one morning and for the price I really wasn't impressed. Expected a lot more from a resort as prestigious as the Salamander.

Food and service great. Environment was good. The only negative were the flies everywhere. I couldn't enjoy food trying to keep the flies away.

First time at Piedmont Grill. Waitress recommended their 10 course menu. Sure why not. It was our anniversary.

Yikes! No meal! None! Is worth $600 (including tip).....no price was given on the menu. If I ever have a memory lapse and go here again....I sure hope I can remember to ask prices first.

P.S....unless you like "sweet and sour" everything...which is what it all tasted like...and I don't care for...skip regardless....the "tastings" were hardly palatable....only the steak was any good

What an amazing way to celebrate! We tried their six course tasting menu with the added wine pairing option. Although a bit pricey the food was amazing and more than enough and the wines were artfully paired to bring out their unique flavors. The service was absolutely flawless as well. The property is quite beautiful and I would recommend arriving early to stroll the grounds or have a drink in the Gold Cup before dinner. We will definitely be returning!

We dined there last Saturday for our anniversary and each chose the small tasting menu. For the price of the tasting menu, the food did not meet expectations. Primarily, the portions were very small (so small that we ordered a separate entree to share after the 2nd to last course), the overall seasoning to the food was not varied and primarily sweet. The dessert was delicious and our servers were very attentive.

In particular for the tasting menu, the squab portion size was extremely small and very underdone. We have dined at a number of fine dining restaurants and were not expecting the same quality of food but something decent and were definitely disappointed, especially considering that it was almost $500 including two cocktails, wine paring and tip. The cocktails were delicious and the wine pairing went well.

Daniel, our server, was great. Appetizers were great! Entree’s were pretty good. Dessert was kind of underwhelming. There was a screaming toddler the entire time we were there that was annoying as hell. Birthday group of 10-12 who looked like this was Ruby Tuesday’s to them. Our meal was $230 + tip. You are treated very well here. The 350 acre property is beautiful. Crab cake was amazing. Meat entrees were flavorful and nice sized. Blueberry tart was dry and the signature cake tasted like ingredients were missing (very bland) and like it had been made days ago and stored in the fridge. That part was disappointing. It was a great chance to eat at a top of the line restaurant as we don’t get to do this often. Maybe 1x a year, if that. The kid screaming was the worst part. They got seated just before us so it lasted the entire meal. Never once took the kid outside. Just kept telling him “Shhh”. Obviously that didn’t work as he didn’t stop. Everyone made faces but nobody said anything. Again, disappointing. Ambience ruined. Service is on point and they make you feel special. Our server was great, knew everything about the menu you could want to know and had a good sense of humor and knowledge about the property. We likely won’t come back, but it was fun to eat here once.

We had dinner at Harrimans and chose to order several small plates in lieu of an entree. The vegetables came first and I am so glad that they did because the dishes were outstanding. The roasted beets with pistachio yogurt could have been my dessert--it was that GOOD! The roasted rainbow carrots and brussels sprouts Caesar were also delicious. The fois gras was one of the best I have ever had--a mini loaf of toasted brioche topped with a berry compote and then the sautéed fois gras--outstanding. Also incredible were the sweetbreads! They were fried with lemon "chips" and lemon aioli--fantastic. The scallops were amazing--the tops were puffed and brown and yet in no way overcooked! You have to save room for dessert because their gluten free chocolate cake is to die for!! A creamy dense chocolate cake with a hint of cayenne topped with a huge mound of meringue which is then torched to perfection!! A perfect ending!

Outstanding dinner and service! Our waiter was great and had excellent recommendations. We started with their incredible cornbread and money infused butter. The honey is from the hives on the premises. My wife had the appetizer order size of diver scallops with the strawberry salad and I ordered the sturgeon and an order of heirloom local carrots. We made sure to save room for desert and was not disappointed. The honey comb cake was a beautiful and playful presentation so get your camera ready!

Looking forward to our next visit

This is our 3rd time dining at this restaurant. Each time is better than the next. We leave feeling like a king and queen. This particular dining experience was for my mother in laws birthday and her wedding anniversary with my father in law. She said it was the best experience she’s had in a long time and is still talking about it! The food is phenomenal, the service is impeccable and the surrounding land is just so serene. You will not be disappointed!

Every person from start to finish cared about us and our service. They had suggestions on food and drink. They were concerned and took care of a food allergy. Everything tasted amazing. Though it wasn’t inexpensive, it was also well worth the cost for a special event.

Beautiful location, Excellent Food & Service. The Chef is amazing. Server Terry was professional- he went above my expectations. Made our outing very special.

Doors open & close to the nearby patio which caused a small fly problem while eating. Need to work on controlling the flies.

My speciality drink was amazing, I had 2. I ordered a pork chop only to have the waitress come back and tell me they were sold out. The beets would have been better warm. And the left over beets were packaged in the same container with the asperagus. The food was meh, for the price we pay. I even was eating my buttered bread wishing I had the butter from Texas Roadhouse. And at the end of the night a couple came three tables over and I could hear and see their entire inappropriate conversation...for example, her shoe was off and her foot was in his lap. It was my birthday dinner, nothing special done. But the dessert and drinks were good. I'd go back for those.

For a 5 star hotel, the food really let us down. Bland to the point of tasteless for some dishes and highly over-seasoned for others. I would really have expected more from them.

The service was fantastic...and the cocktails were excellent. But the chef needs to taste his own food.

We've been there before and it was better. This time, service was bad, food was only ok, flies and fruit flies were everywhere. Desserts are the best part. If I remember correctly, the website menu says $45/adult but we were charged $48/adult. Service was almost non-existent.

Outstanding restaurant - they have two different tasting menus, each with two separate wine pairings. The combinations were excellent and varied. We enjoyed each course and the different wines. The portion sizes of the offerings were smaller than the individual items on the regular menu, but that was fine because we had more courses than usual. The dessert, however, was the normal size, but by that time we were full so we had one dessert to share and the kitchen packed one dessert to go.
