From its inception, Jean Farris has embraced our families’ history in agriculture, and, our passion for fine cuisine. With us, wine is best when sharing a table with good friends and good food.

Here on the estate we grow our own fruits, vegetables, herbs, eggs, and honey to use in the winery and in the kitchen. We serve our farm products with the wine, beer, and spirits that speak of our region. To us "Home-made" is a practice not a philosophy. With that our menu changes several times a year, reflecting the seasons. Staying in time and in touch with the cycles of seasons and what is naturally available to us.

We look forward to having you joining us at our table and sharing a night at Jean Farris.

Sirloin steak was tough. I had to saw at it with a steak knife. Didn't look like a sirloin steak. You get a better steak at Longhorn, Malone's, or home for half the price. My steak was cut in half when it arrived and the waiter waited while my wife cut into her filet to see if it was medium. Chief must not know how to cook a medium steak. I typically don't do reviews or complain but the last time I ordered a steak here it was a NY strip. That was worse than this time but figured it was a one-off. Had to ask for rolls that were lukewarm and really nothing special. Too bad, we usually saved JF for special occasions. If we do go back we will probably stay away from beef. Seems to be a weakness.

Our first visit to Jean Farris was really pleasant. We did three flights of tastings of dry wines which included both reds and whites (there were 2 semi sweets in the white wine tasting). Our opinion was that the food quality out shined the quality of the wine. Service was with Jessica whom we felt very comfortable with as she was patient and attentive. We can see where summertime would be a great time to visit again!

The overall experience was good. The food was average and could have been warmer. For the cost, we would have expected more.
