    After a busy weekend it was great to dine at Jean Farris with our friends. It was very good - as always. It was nice to be able to watch the football game on the television in the bar. We had a nice quiet meal with good food, wine and company. We will be back.

    Bartender was awesome, waitress was considerate and professional, wine and drinks were delicious as well as the food. The perfect stop for my friends who had not visited the winery. Next time we'd like to take the tour.

    Four of us had dinner at Jean Farris on January 15. The drinks and food were wonderful. Greatly appreciated were the beef bourguignon, the filet and the always delicious mushroom risotto. We will totally be returning.

    We have not been here in several years, but heard it was under new management and with a new chef. We decided to give it a try for New Year’s Eve, and that was a huge mistake. They were severely shorthanded, as at least three people called in and did not show up for work. It was obvious that they were working with a skeleton crew, but our waiter did his absolute best to try and make us feel welcome. The very limited menu and running out of dishes throughout the evening was frustrating. The meal took far longer than it should have. I felt badly for our waiter, but will not return to this restaurant.

    We love this restaurant. Incredible food and wine. But this visit was bizarre - owner was our server and she acted strange. She took our drink order and then came back asking if we want to order drinks. Same thing with our meal. She came to check on us way too frequently and touched me like we were friends. We could hear her screaming in the kitchen. Everyone else was great. The music went from Christmas to LOUD pop music and she was singing in the kitchen. We won’t ever forget this night out.

    Found this restaurant on OpenTable for date night and it did not disappoint. It is a little outside of downtown on dark roads but easy to find. The food and drinks were great. She had Braised leg of lamb and I had Country fried duck.

    My neighbor and I wanted to do a worry free Thanksgiving and decided on a place where we had never been before. Lovely, laid back ambiance to please most anyone. The food was served in perfectly timed increments. Staff was very friendly and appropriate. Plentiful amounts of excellent fare and the best Kentucky Mule I’ve ever had! Jean Farris introduced herself to us and was an exceptional hostess. The wine alone is well worth the gorgeous drive !!

    Sunday night date night at Jean Farris. After a very windy Saturday, Sunday was beautiful. As usual, Rob made us some awesome peach jalapeño margaritas - our current favorite. One of us had a glass of Cab Sav with dinner and it was up to its usual very good standards. The filet was cooked to perfection, the mushroom risotto was amazing and the Swiss chard with apples was a nice addition. We will definitely be back and let our friends know to give Jean Farris a try.

    First went here for a friends rehearsal dinner. After the experience I knew I had to bring my fiancee. Needless to say the second time around didn’t disappoint either. We both left Happy and completely satisfied with our little date night. Can’t wait to bring some of my family members next time!

    We love Sundays at Jean Farris. Our cocktails were as good as always and the wine we had with dinner was also very good. The filet entree and risotto entree were outstanding. Our dining partners said the French onion soup was the best they’d had in quite a long time. We will definitely be back.

    Our server was inattentive and discombobulated. We waited close to an hour to order entrees. Members of our party went to the bar to order their own drinks since the waiter abandoned us for so long. We were told the wrong vegetables as the seasonal vegetables. The shrimp and grits served did not match the description in the menu. We’ve been here several times and had lovely service before so this was clearly an off night. Luckily the wine and food were delicious.
