    We have a lovely time at the Vineyard. The food is wonderful and the wine is excellent. We will miss your waiter Garrett, who is leaving soon. He has been one of our favorites, and one of the reasons we come.

    Chamard has been one of our favorite places for dining and wine tastings. Carianne always makes it a special Experience. Her management , paying attention to every detail and her welcoming smile for everyone as she greets each person with a warm welcome. The wines continue to evolve and never disappoints.

    Excellent food with a French emphasis at a vineyard with surprisingly good wine. Seafood/shellfish prepared perfectly with interesting sauces & marinades, went well with a dry Alsatian-stye riesling.

    Food was excellent but a bit disapointed. Our food was served before we were done with the appetizer and we felt rushed. Also it was a milestone celebration and I had called the restaurant to remind them but it was completely ignored :( For the quality of the restaurant and the price, attention to details would be nice.

    Attended with friends for special occasion. Great service. Tried several appetizers and entrees and no one was disappointed - had the salmon, roasted chicken breast, duck, and gnocchi. The Camembert en Croutee was a favorite appetizer. Dessert was the perfect ending to the dinner. Look forward to returning!
