While we love the winery the restaurant needs some plain meals. Such as tenderloin, club sandwiches, toss salad etc. not everyone we bring likes foody foods.
Also in the 5 times we have been there, the bread is terrible. It’s freezer burned and gets very hard quickly.
As far as the shows. We love them however the seats are miserable even for a 2 hour show.
We would love to see this business do well and hopefully this constructive criticism will help.

Everything was top-notch. The wines (Americus and Seyval Select) were great and the food was super.
However, the noise (especially from a large, long table of young people) was such that the four people at our table couldn't converse in normal conversational tones.

Please consider noise dampening (curtains, noise-elimination panels, etc.). That would bring us up to a full 5 star review.

Otherwise, excellent. Thank You.

Unfortunately, not the Birthday dinner we had planned. We arrived early to play the mini links. I called the restaurant directly to move my reservation back and was told the restaurant could not accommodate and was completely booked. I was on property playing course and was extremely frustrated. I was however able to modify my reservation online. When arriving at the restaurant, we were sat at a table that was not comfortable. I asked to be moved and we were. Then the next hostess immediately came over to seat another party at our new table and was made very awkward by asking us to move back. We then ordered drinks and appetizers. Everything came out promptly. After we ordered a second round and dinner we waited over an hour to be served asking for our waitress to check on our food/drink twice. After such a long wait half of our party needed to leave and could not enjoy the birthday dessert. I am mortified this was our first experience and on a birthday. Not sure we will return.

Food and service was very good. I’m not sure why restaurants want to seat parties so close together when there were so many tables to spread out a little. It made the area we were in a little noisy to hold a conversation.

The inside is very nice, modern chic farmhouse vibe. We dined outside and pleasantly surprised how comfortable the chairs were for outside furniture. Great variety on the menu from raw bar, salads, handhelds and entrees. Little something for everyone. Even their cocktails. Wine and whiskey flights, martinis and signature cocktails. Great place to go with family or friends. It is such a nice spot for the area that I made a reservation for Thursday to introduce the place to my girlfriends from book club. I recommend trying this place out!

Went there to celebrate a new job. Food was amazing and the staff was attentive. Only negative is that it is loud in there, not a place I’d go for quiet conversation.

This place is beautiful! And the servers are very knowledgeable and friendly. The wine is wonderful, I got a flight of 3 whites. Unfortunately the food was disappointing. The artichoke dip tasted good, but came with only a few bread triangles and mostly vegetables. It should have been surrounded by bread or chips or pita. Then the entrees...it's weird because you can get a $48 steak or a pizza. I expected fancy from the atmosphere. My husband got the lobster mac and cheese. He did not like the pasta. It's possible it was homemade, but it was very thick and doughy. I got the Caesar salad with hangar steak ($34!!!!). The steak was good, but not amazing. And the Caesar was one of those wedge ones, so it was not cut up. It ended up being a lot of work. Since it was not cut, it was hard to be properly dressed and the steak was on the side, so...just not what I expected. I don't want to do the work they should've done in the back. We shared dessert, which was a blueberry cobbler. That was the best part of the meal. $123 seems like a lot for 2 people for what we got, and that's before the tip. We won't be taking another trip down that way for a very long time. It didn't help that we were late for our reservation because the traffic going down 111 at dinner time is absolutely insane. Too many traffic lights.

Absolutely incredible! Labelle is my favorite restaurant, but this Derry location is stunning.
Service, atmosphere, and food were top notch.
The owner recognized us and came over to talk to us.

Service was slow to start. Took about 20 minutes to get our drinks. Salads and entrees came out together which was a little annoying. Would have preferred my salad first. I would say to wait a little while so the new waitstaff get trained and the experience will be much better. Food was delicious.

Drinks from bar were slow.

No management touch for follow up on service, quality or issues.

This was our first time at this new place. It was very crowded but to be expected given it's so brand new. We had 2 managers and one of the owners come over and welcome us, ask us how everything was and talk for quite a while! And the place was packed! Such a special touch and the food was fantastic! It's definitely going to be a favorite of mine for a long time. I know I would love ANYTHINg on their menu too! Can't wait to go back

We have been to the Labelle Winery in Amherst and wanted to try the new location in Derry. The restaurant is next to a golf course which makes it a bit more exclusive and thus more expensive. We thought everything (food, service) was very good but thought everything was overpriced. We would go back but only on a special occasion. Personally, we prefer the Amherst location for its ambiance.

They are still working out the kinks from just recently opening and you can tell. The staff is still learning so hopefully things will improve. The food (I got the salmon and my husband got the gnocchi and we started with the crabmeat cocktail) was good, not spectacular. The bartender had to look up how to make my drink and when you pay $13 for a cocktail, you kind of hope they know what they are doing! We might go again after some more time and hopefully they will settle into a better rhythm.

We had a great time on our second visit. Shrimp cocktail are very large, served on ice with delicious sauce. Enjoyed a bottle of the winery Chardonnay with wine manager training our fantastic server Isabelle. Sat at a high top in the bar area, the room has a great vibe, all high end finishes etc.

Highly recommend the salmon entree, interesting pairing with beets, but they don’t overwhelm at all. Cheesesteak very good, fries could have been hotter, but still good.

We’ll be back!

Americus is a lovely place with an excellent and diverse menu. The wines comes from the LaBelle vineyards and they offer flights if you want to taste more than one wine.

Service is very good and well paced giving plenty of time to enjoy the food, the ambiance and conversations with fellow dinners.

Noise level was moderate but we will still able to hold a conversation without a problem.

I highly recommend Americus for a special occasion or simply a wonderful evening out.

Our food took a long time to come - over an hour for the main course from when we were seated.

While the steak dish was good to outstanding, the salad dish was almost all lettuce with almost no other veggies.

Steak was overpriced and overcooked. But due to time constraints we could not send it back. Only one entree chicken option. So added chicken to a salad. It was very good. Sides were extra. Cauliflower app was good!

Our first time dining since the new ownership, and we can’t wait to go back! Our party had been there prior to Americus and can’t believe all the changes that were made, what a beautiful space.
The atmosphere, drinks and food were all superb. I was very impressed by the knowledge of wines from our waitress and the overall service we had with our waitress Angie.
We were very pleased with amount of staff on the floor, especially the managers. It was great to see so many of them floating around the room during the dinner rush. Shamus took the time to chat with our table about our drink and food selection, cleared the table and would help out our waitress with whatever was needed. Again I was very impressed with the knowledge Shamus had for the menu. When dining at a new place I always enjoy hearing about the menu options. Comparing to other restaurants I was impressed that Shamus was always around to help. Usually you only see managers when things go south.
Overall great experience and we can’t wait to go back to Americus!

We visited LaBelle and while we loved the atmosphere and had good service, the Gluten Free options are extremely limited and frankly disappointing for a venue that hosts events and a full dining experience. The menu contains 1 GF entree (chicken), 1 GF app (shrimp cocktail), and a few GF salads. There were no options for pasta dishes or GF bread for a sandwich (GF pasta and rolls is a very easy option). We left disappointed and hungry.
