Look for ingredients at their peak, stunning edible blooms and herbs right from the Sherman grounds, and cuisine that is nothing short of inspired and delicious. .

Please note: we are located within the Sherman Library and Gardens, to which there is a $5.00 per person admission fee. Each admission supports the Sherman Gardens (a non-profit organization), who maintain the sweeping panoramic views that our diners get to enjoy! Come for the food and stay for the views (and insta-worthy pics).

    I loved eating here! the food was amazing and the gardens were beautiful. There were a couple of things I had an issue with though. They make you pay an entrance fee of $5 to get into the gardens even if you just want to eat at the restaurant. It definitely is affordable but still a little annoying. The service was very very slow. i had my one year old son with me and i asked for a high chair, the high chair never came and I was standing with my son in my arms at my table looking around feeling very confused. I went and found one myself and carried it through the restaurant on my own. My grandma and I were there for 2 1/2 hours and we both ordered the quiche and a soup and sammie. We waited at least 45 minutes for our food, which was delicious, but then we were sitting there waiting for the check. We asked for it and she disappeared and came back without it asking to refill our iced teas… my son by hour 2 was not having it anymore and started getting noisy. She came back with the check then left again before taking my card making us wait another almost 20 minutes. My grandmother has eaten at this restaurant before and said the service is typically slow but our service that day was beyond slow and almost rude.

    It was such a lovely lunch! The chef came out to greet us and when learning it was a joint birthday, surprised us with the most amazing crème brulee! The food and ambience were perfect!

    We arrrived 10 minutes before our 1 pm reservation. Hostess said they are running about 10 minutes behind and to wait by the beautiful flowers. We watched as 3 parties of two (they arrived after us, not even had they entered the garden as you can see the entrance) and a party of 4 no reservations) were seated before us. We were seated at 1:35 pm. Entrees were delicious, “signature biscuits” were completely raw in the middle. Another server noticed our teas were empty and asked if we would like more as she walked by, our server came back with the tea and said “heard you asked for more tea”. It was my suggestion to have lunch here, it was very disappointing. No sure I will go back or suggest it to friends any more, which is a shame as it it so beautiful and the chef is so very talented.
