    This was my second time here and it did not disappoint!! It is definitely up there in price on some things, but it is a great place to get dressed up and have a nice fine dining meal every once in a while. Food has never disappointed, customer service has been great, and even the owners make sure that every guest during their time there is receiving the well deserved top notch service. Highly recommend!

    My husband ordered the Salmon with 2 coconut shrimp which was all over cooked but tasted ok (he eats salmon allot) I had the "small plate" crab cake in which the waitress did warn me it was SMALL and she was right, not sure if you could even call that a "cake" more like 3 spoons full but the taste was right on and yummy but too small for the $$ This place is nice, people are great just a lil too pricey and yes we ate here once before during brunch (which was better) The eggs Benedict was good and my son loved his pork belly Fry's.

    Beautiful restaurant. Meals were not up to par . My filet was way overdone for medium and quite dry. Spicy shrimp was so hot it was hardly edible. No one asked how our meal was, so we ate what we had. Server was nice but seemed so busy he didn’t have time to check back with us. We usually have an excellent meal - tonight we were not impressed.

    The service and food were incredible!! Reed, our waiter, took time to explain about how it became a restaurant, and the history of the building and the caverns. The food was delicious and the Brussels sprouts are a MUST when you go here. Even the owners came by and greeted us. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    Our dinners were excellent. The Hungarian Mushroom soup was really good. The Japanese Fried chicken, a small plate, was absolutely delicious. The short rib entree was also delicious. Our server was also excellent very attentive and friendly. Great place for a special dinner, a business dinner, or just an everyday dinner. Would definitely recommend.

    We went there for my husband's birthday. He had the ribeye and I had the sundried tomato pasta with Scallops. The Armenian bread appetizer was amazing. All food was excellent. I chose the Petite Sirah red wine, very nice. My husband had their Walnut Old Fashioned. The whole evening was very enjoyable and well worth a night out.

    Service was excellent except that the food took forever to come and when it came to e quickly realized it was extremely overpriced for the portions. I’d recommend to go there for a drink and a lite bite but other than that the price does not match the amount of food you’ll receive.

    Everything was really good, food wine, dessert. For the most part the service was very good, the wine suggestions and knowledge of the menu etc. it wasn’t the most attentive service, they failed to clear app plates before bringing the salads and then salad plates sat and the entrees came. Just a bit crowded and messy. Overall it was an excellent experience and we intend to come back.

    Wife ordered the crab cake dinner and received the salmon bowl. I ordered the 8 oz fillet medium and received the 4 oz and it was rare. Portions we very small. Maybe a handful of potatoes and two pieces of crab. Very disappointing and no one even tried to make it right. I believe we actually got the food for the table beside us. And it took a long time to receive our food. Probably will not return.

    The Oysters Rockefeller were delish! Very professional and friendly service. When I made the reservation for dinner, I had in mind the upstairs restaurant but apparently I indicated the Winery downstairs. We were a bit disappointed but were very pleased with this experience. The menu is the same and the service and quality of the experience was wonderful!

    We were looking forward to "burger night". Prior to arriving, I had gone online to look over the menu and saw that there was a black bean burger listed on the menu. I was happy to see that because I do not eat beef. Upon arriving to the restaurant and giving our server my order, he said that the black bean burger, along with another burger, were no longer available, despite being on the online menu. He offered a tofu burger instead. I ordered the tofu burger, but did not like it at all. It was infortunate that the online menu could not have been updated to reflect the accurate choices.

    Been here several times and have always enjoyed the setting and the food. Wife ordered the scallops and they were excellent, I ordered the ribeye and while they cooked it perfectly it just was not a good cut of meat this time. The waitress immediately recognized that I was not really pleased with the steak and took it off of my bill, cant really ask for more than that. We will be back!

    Wow. My first time there and all four of us loved it. The place was very nice and inviting. Wait staff was great. The owner made his rounds to the guest which was really nice. The food was great and the presentation was very nice. The wine was really good. We bought several bottles to bring home. I would definitely go again. I would make it some place to go at certain times to keep it special. Will for sure be going back. I thought the cost was reasonable as well. They had a deli upstairs and a little more formal dining. The winery which is door stairs is where we ate which we liked. The vibe really nice.

    Outside of missing our shrimp that was suppose to go with our salmon and then it being a little burnt when received we enjoyed our meal. I would highly recommend the salmon dish to anyone and my friend said that her filet mignon was delicious as well. The service was amazing and we also enjoyed the Cava champagne. I love taking people to H & E who have never been because I know it'll always be excellent.

    We celebrated my mother's 80th birthday downstair in the cellar. It was wonderful. My father kept raving about the sauce on his short ribs and my mom wouldn't stop talking about the mushroom soup. Wine was good and the portions on the flights were very good. Drove an hour from Stow to go there and it was worth the trip.

    I have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions, and am never disappointed by their outstanding service and food. The attention to details in the restaurant are beyond appreciated. The owner and his wife, Rick and Carol, have spoken with me and my dinner guests each time we have stopped in. I feel this form of hospitality is usually lacking in the restaurant scene and I value that these two make the efforts. The owner even gave my party and I a tour of the caverns, which are beyond gorgeous. Overall, a wonderful environment and a wonderful experience. I would recommend this place to anyone! It is on the pricey side, but man is it worth it!

    Beautiful and charming restaurant. Service is superb. A little pricey but not outrageous, actually appropriate for the experience that the restaurant is trying to present. Just a nice evening out. You cannot go wrong.
