    We had a wonderful dinner for my husband's birthday. The food was fantastic and the service great from the time we arrived at the front door; then seated in the library, until we were waited on at our dinner table. We loved the ambience of the property.

    The restaurant is in a Norman Revival mansion built in the 1920's. Elegant atmosphere and attentive wait staff. Kitchen did diver scallops, sea bass and rack of lamb beautifully. Good wine list with reasonable prices. Highly recommended for a special night out.

    We were the only customers in the dining room and yet it took an hour to get a very subpar lunch. The waitress was good, food wasn’t good, wait time was awful. I would not have lunch there again. They waited forty minutes to tell us they were out of French fries and potato salad.

    We were at Graylyn for Easter brunch. We have been here before for dinner and also for brunch; it’s a beautiful property and building. We were expecting Easter brunch, for a cost of $60 per adult, to be a buffet as it had been in the past. It was not. We were served family style salad and fresh fruit plate, and given the choice of about 6 entrees ranging from eggs Benedict to a ribeye. We all chose the eggs Benedict. It was served with home style potatoes. The dish was very good, but not over the top. We were served coffee and tea upon request, but no one asked if we would like to order a Mimosa or any other special breakfast drinks (to include juice). Coffee/hot water refills came extremely slowly. There did seem to be just one server working the sunroom where we were sitting, with four tables. For dessert, there was a “buffet” consisting of three desserts. When I asked the gentleman working the bananas Foster table whether any of the desserts might have tree nuts as my son is allergic, he replied in a very condescending manner “well, you might as well not eat any of them”. Not sure what his problem was, but it was a very rude response. Especially since I knew the dessert he was making had no nuts at all, and he didn’t even offer a dish of the vanilla ice cream he had for the bananas Foster dessert. All in all, we had a wonderful time because we were with family in a beautiful place, and the food was good. I just wish the cost would have fit the food offered.

    Graylyn is a spectacular property but the dining experience is subpar. The dining areas are in need of renovation to freshen them and to bring them up to the standard of the manor house--especially the glassed-in porch with sliding glass doors and stackable chairs. Food was inconsistent--seabass was excellent, rare cheeseburger served well-done. Order for 2 salads got lost in the kitchen. Servers were friendly but inexperienced, not well trained except for the maitre d' who was from Athens and had experience in private clubs. He could not have been more gracious or helpful. It would have been nice to enjoy cocktails in one of the gorgeous public areas near the dining room or on the terrace--the bar was interesting architecturally but the atmosphere was ruined by a loud oversized tv, alll quite a hike from the dining roo'm. A place like Graylyn has so much potential as a destination for locals, but the experience is pedestrian at best. The place needs a creative manager who is sensitive to the venue's history and uniqueness. Sad that dining in such a treasure feels like attending a mediocre institutional banquet at a ho-hun conference center.

    Food was outstanding, and Graylyn is a lovely location with its historic house and gardens. Like many places, Graylyn is apparently struggling with inexperienced staff...very pleasant people, but not yet proficient at bar or table service. Our drinks in the lower level bar were not properly prepared nor served...my bourbon based drink was surely made with scotch, and poorly presented. A guest's two attempts for non-alcoholic drinks was met with "they have that upstairs", but the guest was left with water, no offer to call up for what was requested. Food in the lovely dining room was outstanding, and the server was amenable to suggestions as basic as removing finished plates from the prior course and serving the lady first. The real negative was the very loud noise generated by carts rumbling down the adjacent corridor (to serve a group event further down the hall). It really was disruptive, and management staff at the desk nearby should have been attentive to the loud distruption to their dining room. All said, still a good visit, but needing more attentive management of the young staff to be consistent with the quality of the location and the price of the experience. We will try again, and hope this message gives some pointers for improvement.

    Our server was rude from the very beginning it took over 20 minutes to get my drinks. The manager took care of us because the server was so rude. she demanded our food order when we didn’t even have our drinks. We won’t be coming back. We spent 300 on dinner. The manager was great though. We still tipped her 50 dollars even though she was clearly a racist.

    All in our party really enjoyed our evening at Graylyn. From the greeting and holiday decorations to the excellent service and delicious food, we were all favorably impressed. We had Caesar and caprese salads, empanadas and mushroom appetizers, gnocchi and steak entrees, and chocolate tortes for dessert. Everything was fresh, well-prepared, and tasty. Half bottle options for wine were appreciated.

    This is a beautiful place. However, the service was slow. Originally, we were seated inside instead of the patio. The waiter was reluctant to seat us outside, despite the fact there were tables open outside. He finally agreed to move us. The food was just OK. But the price was reasonable. I would only return for wine and cheese, while seating in the patio to enjoy the views

    We were greeted warmly at the entrance and shown to our table on the glass enclosed patio with a view of the grounds: lovely. The table was beautifully set and the service was gracious. Two of us selected the "Manor" menu and took the sea bass option: it was delicious! Our third member took the fish and chips and pronounced them the best he had ever had. The liquor and wine selections were very good and included top of the line liquor selections. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would recommend it for fine dining
