                              We enjoyed dining at Newman’s. The scenery is lovely and the birds at the feeders provided entertainment during dinner. We both had the duck confit which was prepared nicely and was fall-off-the-bone tender. I was disappointed they did not have the branzino. The lobster tail second course was a miss though as it was a bit chewy and tough. Service was very good but seemed a bit rushed. The chocolate cake dessert was a nice finish. The mousse was frozen and I thought it was ice cream, but tasty nonetheless.

                              Newman’s was extraordinary. We had a largish party of 8 & thru handle is as easily as if we were a party of 2. The wait staff was so good that I never even realized they were there while everything got done in a timely fashion. Thank you so much!

                              We enjoyed a wonderful Easter brunch at Newman’s. The Easter decoration on the table was absolutely lovely. We were a group of 5 people and experienced different dishes. All the meals were tasty and nicely presented. We also had a great wine from Austria and finished with the must to have Espresso Martini. Our server Rob was very pleasant. Overall, it was another great experience at this special place!

                              Newman's is in a beautiful place. The views were amazing, and our server was a customer service genius. We really enjoyed speaking to her between courses and having her share her favorites from the menu. She didn't steer us wrong! Great wine selection; and if you get a chance to have the orange ice cream, get it with the chocolate cake dessert. A great recommendation! Also, ask to meet the cats.

                              Gorgeous property and views. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they added a small balloon to the table flowers which was very kind. We live locally so we get to dine at Newman's often. Therefore we looked at the menu online in anticipation of our visit but learned that night that the posted menu was weeks old. The food was very good as usual. First courses: the cheese platter my husband said was delicious and I had soup (I think was artichoke and potato with creme fraiche) which was excellent. Second courses, House Made Fettuccini, Roasted Oyster Mushrooms, Wilted Spinach, Porcini Cream was reported to be good. I had the lobster which was very good. Main Courses: My Roasted Duck Leg Confit, Herbed Dumpling, Carrot Purée, Brussels Sprouts, Sauce Cumberland was excellent and is one of their signature dishes. My husband had the steelhead trout which he reported to be good. For dessert we both had the Chocolate Cake, Belgian Chocolate Mousse, Hazelnuts, Whipped Cream. Unfortunately the mousse was so very frozen we couldn't eat it and took it home. After thawing it was delicious. Ashley was a great and personable server. The choice of beverages and wines is very good. All in all, we heartily recommend visiting for a true dining experience.

                              We live in Hendersonville. Newman's is our favorite restaurant for birthdays, anniversary or other special occasions. The menu always offers seasonal specials and wines chosen to complement the meals. The service is impeccable. Three choices for each course offers just enough options. It is small enough to be comfortable, even with the relatively new space. After visiting several times, we are always warmly welcomed.

                              Absolutely loved it! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Newman’s this past Saturday. Can’t say enough good things about this place. We’ve been wanting to eat here for a while now and finally got a reservation. The food was absolutely delicious. We assumed that the portions would be tiny because there were 4 courses - Not!! We left very satisfied. In addition to the excellent food, the service was great and ambiance breathtaking (we arrived before sunset). Kudos to the chef and the entire staff. Highly recommend Newman’s. We will be back.

                              We had a lovely dinner here and were absolutely dumbfounded by the view. If you have never been here it has a stunning view of the nearby mountains and is quite high up. If you’re asked to pick between the restaurant and the outdoor covered patio picked the patio, they have it quite well insulated and although it was chilly that night it was quite comfortable. The food was phenomenal and there were lots of choices.

                              Newman's never fails to impress. Food, service and facilities are always exceptional. Mark, Marianne, Adam and all go out of their way to make your evening and/or stay very special. Pricing is a bit on the high side, but you are getting a 3-4 course dinner and exceptional service.

                              Birthday celebration for two special people. It never disappoints. We will return when visiting in the area. It is tradition.

                              Food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. The price of $79 plus gratuity and tax is just too high. With only a weekly menu, there was no opportunity try a different menu.

                              We dined on the covered patio, which is lovely! The food was delicious and the server was knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive to our questions. We expect to return many times.
