    We’ve visited previously and had a fantastic experience. This visit was very disappointing and inconsistent. We started with the Brie and fried green tomatoes-both were wonderful. For entrees, the butcher’s cut was wonderful, but the other two entrees were cooked incorrectly. The first halibut (special) was cold in the middle & completely raw. When it was remade, there was no seasoning. The filet au poivre I ordered rare-medium rare came out medium well-well done. It was so far off I didn’t want to gamble trying again, so I switched to the chicken option, which was great. We ordered the mac & cheese and the broccolini. The mac&cheese was actually better this visit than our first experience, but the broccolini was completely raw and tasted like it hadn’t been washed because every bite we tried to eat was gritty? The service we experienced our first visit was phenomenal-personable and friendly, but still very attentive and well-timed. Our server was lovely, but stretched way too thin this visit and the support staff was very poor. We had to ask for more water several times and our plates were not pre-bused between courses. We didn’t have silverware for the first set of entrees. We love going out to nice dinners-and appreciate many mid-fine dining experiences. The kitchen execution and service experience this time didn’t match the quality expected with the associated menu price points.

    Overpriced, satisfactory food. Don't expect to be impressed with the service. More booths than tables. Not quiet.

    I love this place. My husband has been playing music at the vineyard for several years now, and so I've visited many times. But since the remodel and redesign, of my goodness, it's more beautiful than ever. The restaurant is the most significant. It's stunning. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. The new aesthetic is absolutely perfect. I can't wait to visit again.

    Third time trying this place, hoping it would improve. The food is very good. The service is only bad because they don’t seem to know what they are doing. They try but just don’t seem to get it. Despite being in a winery., the wine selection is very limited. The food menu is also limited, but good except for everything being ala carte and expensive. They were out of some things, which made it hard for four people to get complete meals. No plans to go a fourth time.

    We came to vineyard to get the Italian experience of Florence. With that being said, there was no pizza for dinner. How can you experience Italy with no pizza. We ended up getting the burger which was good, why they got the second star. Very disappointing

    The service and atmosphere were wonderful! The staff was friendly, the food was really good, and the indoor and outdoor spaces are just lovely!!! We ate and then went to the winery for tastings and hung out in the game room before going outside on the patio. We went for lunch and stayed over 6 hours. It was a GREAT way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Highly recommend!!!

    We went for brunch on a Saturday - Ambience - excellent Service - solid Food - got the mimosas for all, chicken & waffles, and the uncommon burger. - Was disappointed with the mimosas as they ran out of mango juice and the peach juice was incredibly bland (wasn’t even sure it was peach?). - chicken and waffles were very dry. Chicken felt thin and lacking substance. Gave us truffle butter instead of truffle honey as stated in the menu. - burger was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Perfectly juicy and flavorful. Overall a good experience, but the food could have been a bit better. My girlfriend was slightly disappointed with her meal but would go back to try again.

    The location is quite nice and our outdoor dining experience was very pleasant. The offerings on the dinner menu all sounded great. We chose the chicken, burger, filet, and butchers cut. All were fresh and quite tasty. The cocktails we unique and refreshing. Our only disappointment was the service. I think our server was new to the industry, she had many very odd routines not normally found at a restaurant of this caliber. While odd at first, she actually became quite annoying and inattentive throughout the meal. To top it off she read the entire check item by item to us when paying the bill. We will be back soon, but will request a different server if she is still working.

    Something has changed at this beautiful restaurant that has been one of my favorite places to entertain friends and family. The food quality and taste have changed and disappointing. Service is still great and so is the ambiance, so I hope that the owner evaluates what is happening in their kitchen. Please bring back the onion soup too.

    Our dinner last night was not outstanding, unfortunately. Service was distracted; open kitchen atmosphere was loud and unpleasant, not energetic nor fun to watch--it seemed very unorganized. We were there to see an advertised music experience which was not the case at all. While I had tickets, there was no such event going on.

    A beautiful place to visit. Staff was friendly but the wait staff were still wearing masks so difficult to understand specials being explained. Finally just gave up on hearing any specials. Food was tasty but somewhat on the expensive side and sides were all extra. No toast with eggs, etc. I prefer my coffee in a ceramic mug not a glass as the coffee didn’t stay hot AND I never got refilled. No condiments on table so Had to ask for everything. This was our first time to visit so we may try a dinner next time as we visited for a brunch on our first visit.

    We had lots of personal attention from our server and other staff, including the manager. Maybe it was due to fact we were there on a Thursday evening, but we felt cared for. The food was magnificent with not a single off note. Both me and my wife had different salmon entrees and shared half with each other. The fish was perfectly cooked and was full of flavor. Everything here is alacart so we shared a garden salad, a flavourful dish of grilled Brussels sprouts, and in house made bread. We paired it all with a house brand high plains white wine. It all made for a memorable dinner. Thank you, Millie and Julie, and the kitchen crew for the meal! And thank you Josie and Kent for making this all possible !

    I don't know what the problem is. Service staff was excellent, but the quality of the food is suffering. The menu is so limited is one problem. I have recommended this place to many friends, because even though the menu is lacking the food was always good and it is a beautiful venue. We will try again but disappointed this time. Recommendation: Make it a traditional steak house. You know, Baked potatoes,bread included and more food choices. Do it and they will come. It is a winery so that part is great. "Sorry"
