    We booked our reservation 11 months in advance and the wait was definitely worth it!! From the moment we arrived, we were enveloped in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Each dish was meticulously crafted with locally sourced ingredients, offering a harmonious blend of flavors that is both innovative and delicious. The presentation is nothing short of art. What sets Candle in the Woods apart is the personal touch and passion of the chef, who shares the inspiration and story behind each dish. This level of interaction adds a unique and intimate dimension to the dining experience. The wine pairing is impeccable, featuring selections that perfectly complement each course. The service is exceptional, with a staff that is attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely dedicated to ensuring every guest has an unforgettable evening. Dining at Candle in the Woods is more than just a meal; it's an exquisite experience that leaves you eagerly anticipating your next visit. If you're looking for a remarkable dining adventure, this is the place for you. Highly recommended!

    It’s dinner and a show—a fun and entertaining experience where time flies by. The food is good, and I enjoyed most of the dishes. However, it’s quite expensive. If the price were more reasonable, I would have given it five stars.

    Fantastic experience, well prepared and presented. Only issue was our card was compromised the following morning, being last used at Candle. Otherwise, other than a bit pricey, a wonderful experience and we will likely do it again sometime.

    Unique experience. The staff was great and the overall experience was worth trying, once. Most food was good, but with dietary restrictions the experience fell a little short. It seemed that some of the dishes were an afterthought and just had omissions of certain ingredients rather than a more thoughtful attempt. A little disappointing after waiting 7 months to dine there. Would still recommend to others because it was a fun and unique evening.
