We were celebrating my husband's birthday. The service was perfect. Food was great. They brought out a special dessert as a surprise. We have not eaten in a restaurant since the pandemic began and the spacing was done very, very well.

Wonderful - every single meal! The steak was delicious and prepared perfectly. The sides are definitely big enough to share and atmosphere was lovely.

The meals were the perhaps the best tasting that we have ever had. Each dish was delicious and the presents was refined and elegant. The portion sizes were generous and we were more than satisfied. In fact, my wife shared her salad with me because it was too large for one person. The desert was enough for us both and we had some left over. Simple dishes such as fried chicken and salmon were uniquely flavored and cooked to perfection. Even these common dishes were transformed into something mew. Even a demanding diner will be pleased with the quality and quantity of each dish. I would definitely recommend and plan to visit again to enough more delicious meals.

We dined at Jeffersons during a three-night stay at The Homestead. Overall the experience was positive. The food was very good and service exceptional, but overall a little pricey. The restaurant felt like casual dining, although that is not how the Omni is branding Jeffersons (they have a separate casual restaurant which is operating on an abbreviated schedule during the pandemic). All that said, we would return.

Food quality was mixed, Wedge salad was drenched with dressing to the point of approaching soup. Steak was good.

Service very poor. Hostess seemed overwhelmed, first said she could seat us 10 - 15 minutes early as requested (our reservation was the last time slot available), then she said to get a drink and wait, then she told to leave and come back. We were fine with any option, but it was a little difficult to sort out what she wanted us to do after getting three sets of instructions.

We were seated and ordered. Salad arrived, but we had no silverware until we could flag down our waiter to point this out. He forgot our drinks, he forgot a side dish my son had ordered as an appetizer (ultimately arrived after main course), and he almost forgot our wine, as it was brought much too far into our meal.

Great waitress and ambience was wonderful. We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary there. The other couple we were with were also celebrating their 25 th. We all enjoyed our food and thought it was excellent. The only thing is my fillet was a little dry and one of our friends got the wrong steak. It was fine though and we loved our dessert they sent us on the house. Great great service.

2 days in a row my breakfast order was wrong or clearly sitting under a heat lamp for a very long time (pancakes). The dinner we had was very good, but not sure the breakfast is worth it.

We went here because the main dining room at the Omni was closed. Atmosphere is very nice. Service is friendly and attentive. Food was good not the best we've had but pretty good. We'd eat there again. They had a decent wine selection and they didn't try to kill you on prices.

Second time to Jefferson's Restaurant, and it was as good as the first. We had a bone in NY strip and a filet along with wedge salad and 2 sides. Everything was top notch. It's priced as you might expect for a high-end resort, but well worth the cost as dinner was superb. Can't wait to come back again.

Jefferson’s is a nice restaurant with good food! When I was there earlier this year I had excellent service. This time our server was not professional or knowledgeable. He obviously had not been well trained. It really put a damper on a what was supposed to be a fun dinner with friends. I expect more from a restaurant at The Homestead.

For starters the service was outstanding, and the menu provided a sufficient number of good choices. I planned to share the honey glazed fried chicken with my spouse, the our server divided it for us! The vegetables were served family style, and we had an excellent meal.

Disclaimer: we understand how difficult it is in Covid time to be open, as we are in the industry. And we arrived with no expectation other than we wanted to have dinner on premise.

The soup was served piping hot in a cast iron bowl. I burned my mouth with the first sip. You either serve it warm in a cast iron vessel that keeps heat or in a ceramic or porcelain bowl if you want the soup sent out piping hot.

Both steaks, one filet and the other bones in ribeye, were sent back after two bites. The filet Mignon was slathered in a heavy garlic butter. We couldn’t get past it. The beautiful bones-in ribeye was over salted, even so for someone who uses MSG. The chef was kind to offer a replacement. We asked for a ribeye with just a pinch of salt as seasoning and it was perfect.

The wine list was entirely too safe. If one third of the menu is expensive steaks and people clearly dress up for dinner, perhaps pull the wines from the still-closed Dining Room? We would be glad to pay for a good bottle or two. But the wine list is safer than the two restaurants across the street from the public pool in the village.

We were staying at the Homestead and ate 3 meals a day at Jefferson’s. Because of Covid, this was the only open sit-down restaurant at the Homestead. All of our meals there were very good, and the service was good. In fact, I thought the meals were better than the meals I’ve eaten at the main dining room, which is currently closed.
