                                                The grounds were very nice. Food was amazing with many good selections in each of the 4 categories. Although the 2 fixed price menus said, one starter or first course, main and dessert, OR one starter, 1 first course, main and dessert, you were able to pick any combo of starter and first course, main and /or dessert which made many more options to choose from. We were seated on the porch with a great view of the property and since the tables were only for 2 people, it was quieter than the adjacent large dining area which we appreciated. Getting there is a bit tricky as the GPS said we had arrived, but we weren’t there yet. Service was not great. Our waitress forgot to bring us bread….we found out when she was taking away the unused bread plates and I asked what they were for. She asked if we wanted it then, which we accepted. Our water glasses were filled at the start of the meal and remained empty and on the outside corner of our table until I asked for them to be refilled. The restaurant was busy when we arrived at 7:30, but cleared out by 8. Service at this price point should be attentive. It was my birthday which I let them know on our reservation and although we saw peoples birthdays be acknowledged, mine was not.

                                                We had a wonderful time dining in the potting shed for my husband’s 50th. It certainly was special and unique. The manager is extremely attentive and our waiter was nothing less than fantastic. It was a lovely experience and we can’t wait to go back and eat in the dining room. Thank you so much, Melissa Ackerson

                                                We really appreciated the fact that with the pre fixe 3 or 4 courses you have the option of doubling up on starters or second course, if you want to skip dessert. I loved my duck entree. We also found the gnocchi with salmon excellent. Also liked sitting on the enclosed porch with a view of the grounds.

                                                For her birthday, my daughter chose to return to Earth, where she had previously enjoyed a wonderful visit. Now, I too am a believer. Earth is the most sublime retreat. All my senses were intrigued, indulged and soothed. From the dignified valet through the entire evening, every aspect was excellent. Server Charlie was ideal- so knowledgeable, competent and just-right humor. His demeanor was so therapeutic; we were at ease immediately, therefore set up to relax, enjoy. The food was beyond amazing. Honestly, it was perfect. What a well-considered and executed menu! Throughout the evening, we rested in unpretentious perfection. Then back to the valet, who treated us with matter-of-fact dignity. Earth at Hidden Pond is a pilgrimage I will want to return to. Yes, again.

Be prepared to valet. Every course was excellent and cocktails were perfect. Definitely recommend for a special occasion.

We spent about 2 hours there, and the waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and sent out an extra dish for us to try. Truly gourmet food in a beautiful romantic environment. We loved it!!

                                                I enjoyed everything about Earth. The car ride into the woods, rustic yet sophisticated ambience, music, backyard view overlooking the pond, and most of the all the food and service. Brightly prepared and creatively plated dishes with very fresh ingredients, coupled with attentive and genuinely friendly service from the entire team from the moment you walk in the door. Treat yourself to a unique dining experience at Earth!

                                                Was our first encounter and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was a birthday celebration and we felt as though we were treated like royalty. Abbey was the person who attended us and she fit it with great style. Everything about Earth was outstanding. One of our new favorite places.
