I was looking forward to dining at the Modern Homestead with friends for the March Cozy Dinner, and came away sorely disappointed. For four people, dining and tip included it was close to $200 and I expected at that price something much better. While the restaurant has a lot of character, the table we were seated at should have only held two people. Even after removing the flowers, candle, sugars, etc., our utensils, plates and glassware was cramped onto the table to the point that everyones place setting was touching each others. For the dinner, I felt like the price of $40 was over priced for the meal. The beverage options were water with dinner and coffee with dessert. You are able to BYOB. The salad dressing was good, but the pickled onions were missing and honestly, it was organic spring greens, english cucumber and cherry tomatoes that can be purchased at any supermarket. Nothing special. The chicken had a good flavor, but was over cooked and dry. The green beans were okay and the rice was decent. I was excited for the dessert and it was listed as a Lemon Meyer cake with whipped cream. It should have stated a Lemon Meyer pound cake and NO whipped cream was on the plate or offered. With our table paying close to $200 total for the meal, (tip included) we all felt disappointed and will not return. I wish it would have been different as I prefer local restaurants.

Very nice Valentines Day dinner. Aside from the excellent service, I was impressed with how all the food was different than ordinary in a good way. You won't find these kinds of dishes at the chain restaurants. I highly recommend Modern Homestead for special dinners in a classy but not stuffy atmosphere.

A delightful drive into the country to be served a delicious meal by a very attentive server. Salad with fresh greens, locally raised chicken and a sumptuous desert. Intimate.

Our party of three had a great time at the cozy harvest dinner. The set menu was delicious, not the usual same old options. The portions were generous, two of our party took food home. The service was excellent, attentive without hovering. They had great music playing. Everyone did some shopping after the meal and we all enjoyed our experience very much.

We love the Cozy Dinners at Modern Homestead, and the last one was one of my favorites (turkey lasagna). The food is always well-prepared and tasty. The atmosphere is unique and conducive to conversation. The seated is limited to small groups (6 or less), but this is never a problem for us. Plan ahead and make reservations. We look forward to these dinners every month.

We had another wonderful meal prepared by Trellis at Modern Homestead for Valentine's Day. The food and service was impeccable. It's worth every penny for a once a month splurge and a meal fit for a foodie. Can't wait to go back!

This was my first time trying the monthly dinner at Modern Homestead, and I'm so glad I did. It was such a treat! The atmosphere is quaint & romantic. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Each phase of the meal was delicious and beautifully plated. I'm still dreaming about the lemon tart that concluded the meal as dessert. I also loved the fact that it was BYOB. We'll definitely return! Make sure you have a reservation.

We highly recommend this restaurant, which is part of a top-notch nursery and full of flowers and wonderful gardening and cooking items. The lovely owners are always friendly and welcoming; the service is exceptional; and the food is excellent. An interesting author was present for the dinner we attended along with two fine musicians so we got to meet and talk with the author (and happily bought a book) and listen to very special music. We will certainly return, as we have done often in the past (in fact, I returned the next day to buy some perennials) - a perfect place. Lucas and Trellis are the best! Thank you!
