    Newman Restaurant is a gem hidden in Saluda, NC. The ambiance is lovely, and the seating and service are impeccable. The food presentation is beautiful, but the food could use a bit of seasoning. It tends to be a bit blah in taste.

    We look forward to returning to Newman's on special occasions, this time a birthday. We enjoy choosing from the three options for each of the four courses. This time we were pleased to see Bronzino as the fish option, which we enjoyed in Europe. The lamb was perfectly done. We usually go about three times a year and are welcomed when we return. Serving sizes are just right for us. The servers are always personable and attentive.

    Wonderful atmosphere, great server, delicious food and masterful cocktails. We arrived early to sit by the fireplace and munch on light appetizer tidbits while enjoying our first cocktail. The weather did not cooperate as the clouds obscured the breath taking view of the mountains from our intimate dining table. The background music complemented the stately vibe. We will return.

    I booked a valentines/birthday dinner for my boyfriend. The food was absolutely delicious, truly fine dining. The duck confit was so succulent, soft and flavorful, bravo chef. The service was consistent, friendly, and the waiter came often to check on us. The cocktails were not included in the meal but were deliciously made by a passionate bartender. I wish I booked during sunset, as I'm sure it would have been beautiful. Maybe next time we will book sunset. I do wish they did more for my boyfriend for his birthday, they only propped up a small balloon on the table. Thank you for a wonderful time nonetheless.

    This is the best restaurant in driving distance of us in Spartanburg. We have done Thanksgiving, Christmas and the Titanic evening as well as regular dinner evenings here. The food is exquisitely prepared and the views are magnificent. You really must arrive before darkness. The ambiance of the lobby and the roaring fireplace are beautiful in cooler weather. Friendly, courteous and professional, the staff is impeccable. A very European experience with a southern flair.

    First time at Newman's restaurant and it did not disappoint. Such a great Christmas experience, especially the Dickens Christmas Carol reading between the dinner courses. We had the tenderloin and it was delicious. Another in our party enjoyed the duck. The hosts and servers were great. A truly special occasion place.

    The service, professionalism, and friendly atmosphere at the Orchard Inn is amazing. My wife and I have eaten brunch there several times over the last year and the experience has been fantastic each and every time. The menu is changed frequently and the food has been well prepared and presented with each menu. The Inn has become our special place for a relaxing retreat.

    It’s always a pleasure dining at Newman’s! The food and cocktails are incredible, the staff is lovely, and the ambience is wonderful. The terrace has the most stunning views and can be enjoyed in both the summer and late fall (with the help of space heaters and a fireplace). Whenever we have company, we go to Sunday Brunch at Newman’s, and it never disappoints.

    This dining experience was exceptional. Newman's is expensive, the food and the beverages, so expect to spend $150 per person. But you won't find a better "special occasion" restaurant in this area.

    Newman's is known for quality of service, food and ambiance. They surpassed all expectations. Our server was a ROCK STAR in taking care of us and making us feel at home. Mike was a part of the experience. The new room with fireplace is very welcoming and sets the perfect environment. Each course of the meal was delicious and perfectly paired and prepared. The wines and other beverages were perfect compliments to the ambiance and meals. Our visit to Newman's was with a party of six celebrating a special occasion. Often, it feels like the experience does not measure up to the cost. Not so here. Everything was extraordinary and worth more than what was asked. I look forward to my next visit.

    The service is always exceptional, as is the view in the outdoor covered area. The only problem with the food and this has happened during 2 different visits -- the crabcake benedict (which is wonderful) has been served cold/warm. The rest of the food was served hot. Scones are perfect, dessert, etc. This is a not for the chef and kitchen. Didn't ruin the meal, but won't order that a 3rd time. Go for the great service and view and not a bad value for brunch either. Perfect way to spend a sunny fall day.

    We have stayed and dined at the Orchard Inn, but we also travel there just to dine. We try to get there at least 2-3 times a year and every time we do, we wonder why we don't do it more often. The Inn is about a 40 minute drive from our home in Asheville, and that may be the only reason. The setting, the views, the service and the food are all spectacular. The Orchard Inn reminds us Country Inns in New England with an historic setting, lovely setting and a great restaurant for dinner. The restaurant serves a four-course Prix Fixe menu for $89/person and the food is lovely. The kitchen continues to improve and the flavors have gotten better in recent year, especially those in the sauces. At this time of year, we enjoy arriving prior to the time of dinner reservation so we can sit by the wood burning fireplace with a glass of wine and just soak in the ambience. We will be back.

    This is truly an experience, not just a lovely dinner. We arrived early and had a drink in the main lobby of the Orchard Inn, which was lovely. Then we entered the dining area where we were surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the fall colors. The lighting in the area and the beautiful fireplace made the ambience so romantic! Then came the menus and there were so many choices that we wanted to try. Every dish was delicious and we were delighted. We don't usually like prix fix menus but Newman's is definitely an exception. I wouldn't change a thing ... such a special experience.

    We enjoyed having brunch at Newman's to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our server, Kyle was very attentive and helpful. We dined on the porch which was a beautiful setting on a perfect fall day. It is definitely a special occasion spot.
