    We were there to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday on Friday night. We loved the historic feel of the restaurant. We also enjoyed the fire pit for a few minutes after dinner. The appetizers, drinks, entrees and birthday dessert were excellent. Our group of 7 had the truffle fries and frog legs for appetizers. Entrees were the Trout, Filet, Pork Chop and Burger. All the sides were good as well. My wife got a slice of Banana Split Cheesecake as her birthday dessert and it was delicious. I would have given 5 stars across the board, but the wait times for the food were slow.

    Overall, a pleasant experience, but The food was not exceptional enough to justify prices. Food takes inordinately long to be prepared. There is no option to have menu items prepared differently. The restaurant claims to source food locally whenever possible, but gets trout from Scotland - and it looks and tastes like salmon. Our server was very sweet, but had to walk a long distance to the kitchen, and it made us feel sorry for her.

    The food was amazing but takes a while to get to the table… but that’s okay because everything is made to order! This is our second time coming. Our favorite appetizer: truffle fries, favorite salad: harvest salad, and favorite entrees: Gnocchi and Pork Chop! After Dinner we enjoyed pleasant conversation outside around the fire 🔥 pit!

    We live out of state and have been looking forward to eating at Honeysuckle on our trips back to visit family in Kentucky. The food was excellent and the service from the staff was wonderful! We also appreciated the phone call and service when our reservation had to be moved to the next day when a water leak happened earlier this month. We are so happy this beautiful building has been preserved. We look forward to our next visit.

    Great place to celebrate an occasion. Limited menu. Nobody else there. I think it would be full every night if it were made cozier and more to choose from on the menu. Less expensive. If it were more like a Malones or something like that, business be booming!!!!

    We ordered the burger and the hot brown, and both were delicious, though a tad steep pricewise. My partner's cocktail was an extremely innovative mixological effort, while I had a tasty local beer. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and checked on us frequently. The building's part of the ambience is wonderful--a beautifully refurbished building that used to house handlooms. The only downside of our experience was the owner, who greeted everyone around us but did not find the time to acknowledge our presence. Old hippies not welcome?

    Top 3 most memorable dinners my wife and I have ever experienced. Coffee crusted bone-in porkchop and trout came out piping hot and delicious is an understatement. With food this good be prepared pay a little for it. 2 entrees and 2 cocktails were $85. This is not something we do often, it was a date night for us which rarely happens. Upon eating this amazing dinner I was happy to give them my money. Cora our server was also amazing. My wife and I can't wait to experience this place again soon.

    My husband and I were in Richmond for the weekend to move daughter from her dorm and needed a good meal. We came upon this location and decided to give it a try. Definitely loved everything about this wonderful gem! The cocktails were phenomenal. I’m typically not a bourbon drinker, but did love the honey infused with sage bourbon cocktail! Our waitress (name has slipped my mind) was very knowledgeable of the history of the facility and more than willing to give recommendations for food/drink. Highly recommend this gem to out of town visitors looking for a non chain restaurant with good food and friendly service!

    Wish there was better ambiance, it felt like a bar atmosphere with fine dining prices. Would have liked at least a table cloth, more menu choices and more than 2 pieces of bread for the price you pay. Food was good just not worth the money

    Love the location and the surroundings. The music is a little too loud for the ambiance and the wait staff is young (in terms of needing better training on customer service). But the food was amazing and I’ll be back. Regarding specific feedback on the staff, both times we have been the waitress interrupted conversations we were having instead of waiting for us to acknowledge her. One waiter talked extremely loud for the entire restaurant to hear like we were deaf. I just think they may need better training on etiquette for a nice restaurant dining experience.

    We arrived for our dinner reservations at 7 pm for 6. We were seated and ignored for more than 25 minutes. No water. No drinks. We finally asked if we could get our own drinks from the bar since we had been waiting so long and were told n. We continued to sit and still no service. No explanations for why we were being ignored. We finally asked and were told someone called in that night and they were short staffed. Would have been nice if someone had explained this to us from the beginning. After waiting 35 minutes with no explanation, no food and no drinks, we explained that we were leaving. Very disappointed especially in the lack of getting information. Won't return.

    Absolutely loved my trout dinner at Honeysuckle. The fish was perfectly cooked--tender, juicy, and full of flavor. It was served with veggies that were also perfect. The hostess and servers were efficient, friendly, and kept their masks on (so we didn't have to keep ours on--ensuring that we had a safe experience). Also, the tables were large with generous space between them. A wonderful and unique dining experience in Berea. Best wishes for continued success!

    Creative and delicious food, attentive and helpful service, & great value on cocktails and wine. Nice, casual atmosphere with dark wood tables, spread out around a central bar. The hostess’s ring tone was a bit loud and annoying, but other than that, a wonderful meal.

    Chief refused to make a minor change to a dish. We waited over 40 minutes before we found out he had refused. (Just asked to grill the vegetables without the sauce due to a dietary restriction). Owner finally came out and told us the chief was refusing. What we finally did get to eat was free but the whole experience ruined what was supposed to be a special evening out for my mother who just finished her radiation treatments. I would not recommend it if you need any special accommodations with your meal. The chief is a diva.

    This beautiful restaurant hits every mark. The food is delicious! We had the warm brussel sprout salad, charcuterie board, trout, and filet. The salad had a ginger dressing that was phenomenal, and the trout was absolute perfection! My husband raved about the filet. We also shared the apple dumpling dessert, which was fabulous. The restaurant is beautiful. It is gorgeously decorated with large vintage windows and wood. It is casual and inviting…perfect for dinner with friends, yet it also has a very upscale/high end feel that makes it worthy of a special occasion. Honeysuckle is a win!
