The staff seemed overwhelmed with Valentine's day despite there being several empty tables. There was no drink menu which is okay if there's a very capable bar but the wait staff was making the drinks and the bar was stocked about like most chain restaurants. The rotisserie duck was amazing and a good value for how it tasted. I didn't appreciate the 20% service fee. A table of two shouldn't be charged gratuity in my opinion.

Overall I think the place has the potential to be great but it fell short the night I was there.

Odd pairing of main/side dishes. The "chef" was adamant about not mixing. Ordered the roasted duck and it came with presumably powdered mash potatoes and collard greens. The duck was covered in a brown gravy. Tasted like a KFC dinner which would have been a lot cheaper and without the 20% included gratuity (standard regardless of party size). I didn't bother to test the dust bowl that was the fish on a bed of rice my date was eating, but I could tell by the fork pushing technique of an 8yo that it was not all that she was hoping for. Restaurant was ~70% full and though we were literally sitting in the same room as the bar, my glass of wine took 30min to pour.

The service was adequate. The food was OK.....I had the lobster ravioli. I sent it back to be reheated. I’m just not keen on having “warm” anything if it’s supposed to be hot. I doubt we’ll do another visit anytime soon.

The food was good and the service was good. I didn't appreciate the fact that my reservation was mishandled and we were all bundled together in this little room. If I called and spoke with you directly the smart thing to do is write what we said down so you won't guess or try to remember incorrectly. Which is exactly what occurred! Then we asked for more bread you server gave me an excuse that one room has 50 people the other 36 and us (28). If you can't accommodate the guest you have maybe take less guests so you will be able to accommodate those that are there. I don't want to hear your excuses about something you should have been prepared for just like you don't want to hear how I can't pay my bill! It goes both ways! The atmosphere for what we were doing for couples was great. Tyler is a huge asset to your business, be grateful because things almost went a different direction than expected! A little frustration from the female server but it comes with the territory when you get flustered! Good help is hard to find and you guys have just that good help.

The only thing I would change is the " suggested gratuity". If it is suggested then it is isn't required. However, they always charge me this. Then ask for additional tips. I do not agree with this.

They were kind to accommodate our change in time. The restaurant was not busy. The hostess was a bit condescending. The waitress was kind but suggested "signature chicken" which was dry and lacked flavor. I almost considered it previously frozen. My guest's meal was good by her account.

The menu is not the one posted on Open Table. The restaurant gives you a much smaller piece of paper.

We ordered bruschetta (bread was soggy like it sat too long on the counter, but the flavor was decent), tomato bisque (really good), mushroom ravioli with chicken (the sauce & ravioli were great-the chicken was horrible!!!!! Completely overcooked and dry), and the filet (decent). It took an incredibly long time to receive the main courses. In addition, our server did not come and check on us after food was delivered. We had to flag him down to get the check to leave. The house looks great for Christmas, but I will probably not be back.

The house was beautiful with all the Christmas decor. The waitress was very polite and courteous. Answered all our questions . I was a bit disappointed at the food selection. I had my appetite for shrimp cocktail and a filet mignon. But the chicken was good. Of course it will be a long time before we will be able to afford to eat there again. But all in all it was a treat. I did feel out of place and tried to be on my best behavior. This is me Cynthia talking not my husband, David. I did have to stop him from asking for ketchup for the fries and steak. Oh well.

Wine was stale, food cooked to wrong temperature, crab cakes were all filler, but put in back corner of house near view of restrooms and an unexplained large ugly curtain on the wall. Table candles not lit and a cheap fake flower on table.

Very impressed with the way this stately house was restored into a restaurant. There are several rooms, and, they all have their own personality. I was seated in the bar area, still very nice, although I would have preferred one of the other stately rooms. Sunday brunch was quite a nice variety of choices, and not necessarily all breakfast foods. They did have an omelet bar, but with one person and a single pan, so expect a wait. This person also took care of the carving station. My waiter was very friendly, but not very attentive. The food was tasty, but pretty standard preparation... nothing special. The prime rib from the carving station was very good. The desserts were not very appetizing. I chose a few cookies, but they were pretty bland, and hard as rocks.

When we booked this venue there was only one available reservation, but when we arrived there were only three other tables seated . Instead of being seated in the nicer dining area we were seated in the bar area. Once seated the menu which was a sheet of paper was handed to us and it was not the available menu online. This was disappointing to me as this was part of the reason I chose this restaurant. My dinner tasted like the chicken had been freezer burned the potatoes tasted as if they had come from a box the wine tasted as if it had been open for weeks and the creme brûlée was not great either. The service was awesome and apologized for the discrepancy in the menus. For the quality of the meal the price was outrageous .
