Excellent ambiance food and service outstanding and the views beautiful
Outstanding service, creative food and beautiful presentation. Lovely setting as well.
Excellent food and service in an awesome atmosphere!
If you are near, or planning to visit Saluda, NC, you MUST dine at Newman’s! We drive an hour from Greenville, SC 2-3 times a year for this special treat of culinary delights, elegant but warm and friendly service, and beautiful ambience. Marc, Marianne, and all the family and friends who give their time and love to the Orchard Inn make every visit a joy.
We sat on the back patio; great news. Also great brunch. Have been there several times and would definitely recommend...
The food and atmosphere were spectacular. Wonderful wine selection. All 4 courses were very well prepared and presented. A first class experience. We will dine there again.
Wonderful dinner in a romantic country inn. All due diligence performed because of COVID. Varied 4-course menu to suit all tastes. Nice wine list. Attentive service without hovering. Tucked away in Saluda, NC, and a great find!
This place is perfect! Beautiful views, incredibly yummy food, fantastic presentation of food, super friendly and attentive staff, and a great selection of wines. It’s a family-run place and the owners are very friendly, professional, caring, and experienced - and love cats and dogs, which was a huge bonus! It is very upmarket and cozy, and we celebrated my dad’s birthday there. They made the evening very special for him and we had a great time. The food was outstanding (and we’ve been to quite a few Michelin star restaurants so know our way around food!). Thank you so much for a wonderful evening!
This restaurant is really good but I don’t want too many people to find out about it. The owners run an excellent dining experience that is reminiscent of memories from my European travel. No detail is spared.
I took my sister in while visiting from Atlanta and she loved it as well. A new find for me but I love it!
Friendly owners and staff.
Great place, food, service, and ambiance. Always consistent and been there many times over the years . My favorite place of anywhere I have ever been !!!
Great food and wine, fantastic service, and spectacular view! We will be back with friends and family.
The tables were set up beautifully. The view out of the floor to ceiling windows was as pretty as a picture with the mountains & flowers. The meal was divided into four courses. Each course had five choices to choose from. And I can speak for my husband & myself that the food was wonderfully good. It is a restaurant to go to for a special occasion...a celebration of some sort. It was a dinner to savor & remember for my birthday.
Loved the view, the setting and an amazing service. Our watermelon salad was fresh and delicious - we had the risotto and the lobster, which were both great. And the desserts were the perfect ending.
As always, the food, service and ambiance were perfect. We go there once or twice a year and are never disappointed with the quality of the experience. My only wish is that they put a little more food on the plates. I always leave wanting more....
The setting on the back deck is breathtaking. The food rivals any I have had. Service is 5 star.
Awesome food. Great dining experience. Service was excellent. Very nice Inn with view of the mountains.
Newman's is a place for a slow leisurely dinner with an ambiance conducive to conversation. The tables were spaced apart to comply with the Covid-19 safety standards and all the staff was wearing safety equipment. There is an extensive wine list but unfortunately, they do not have cocktails. However, this did not detract from the quality of the restaurant. The menu is creative and with plenty of choices for all. This is not a child friendly establishment. The restaurant is located inside The Orchard Inn and there are antiques and beautiful objects throughout that sets the mood for quiet reflection and nostalgia.
The excellent food and ambiance make for a memorable experience.
The food is fantastic, the service is perfect, and the setting is beautiful. Newman’s is one of our favorite places for an elegant dinner. We highly recommend it!
special place for a special event expensive so best for someone who appreciates different and specially prepared food
Delicious food, beautiful presentation, nicely timed.
Music was too loud and music kept turning on & off.....very aggravating. Otherwise, quite a nice experience. Food was very good.
Service was wonderful. The view is outstanding. The food was good but not memorable. The staff was very nice but unfortunately they all congregated behind our table so we could hear them talking about how attractive guests were and upselling customers.
Our server was fine but was having to cover too many parts of the restaurant. the service overall was slow and at points needlessly slow. We were seated for over 10 minutes before our drink order was taken then another 15 minutes before our dinner order was taken. For a party of 2, this makes for some long waits. The food was good, but not exceptional. The views though made it all worthwhile.
What a treasure in the North Carolina mountains. The Orchard Inn is a quaint inn and Newman's was an unexpected delight. The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and helpful. I hope to have the pleasure to return there soon.
Very nice place with excellent service , the food was really delicious and fresh . Highly recommended
We love enjoying fine dining at Newman's. Food is fresh, delicious and plated beautifully and the service never disappoints.
Excellent service and delicious dinner. Felt very safe. No cov-19 worries
Everything on the July menu looked great, but we chose the beef which was excellent. Also appetizers and a second course to choose from - and, of course, dessert. All was wonderful and the Inn and Innkeepers are charming! Highly recommend!
Just absolutely amazing. We will return for Sunday brunch!
Brunch is very pleasant overlooking garden and mountain views. Interesting menu and everything is delicious and beautifully presented. A gem in the area.
The food and setting wet amazing. Our waitress was very personable. One thing I would suggest is training on pouring wines. It was splashed onto plates and table and both my husband and I put our legs under the table in fear of it being splashed onto clothing.
I would suggest getting rid of those black iron tables and chairs. Though pretty to look at they were seriously so uncomfortable they distracted from being able to fully enjoy our dinner.
Great venue and amazing staff. Wonderful place for a special evening out. Mark and the Newman’s team offer warm hospitality and terrific food.
Our Sunday brunch at Newman’s was a wonderful experience, especially during this coronavirus era. The food was fabulous, and both my dad and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The prix fixe menu had an excellent assortment of choices, each of which sounded delicious. We sat outdoors on the beautiful covered front porch, the large tables were spaced far apart, the waitstaff wore masks (as did we, except when we were eating) and even my dad and I were able to be six feet apart. This was the first meal I’ve enjoyed out in 4 months, and I was so please that the owners had taken precautions thorough enough that we were able to fully relax and enjoy the meal. I’ve often eaten at Newman’s when I’m in the area, and the food is always absolutely superb, the service attentive and the setting incomparable. It was a true pleasure again.
Stunningly good! Great variety on the menu. Beautiful setting and wonderful wait staff.
Incredible establishment with fantastic four course Prix Fixe menu. Beautiful mountain top setting. Truly a unique and superb dining experience. Similar to fine French dining but with American taste and portions. Worth every penny!
Please notice that my latest review has dropped from a steady 5 Star to a 4 Star rating. First of all I will assure you that I have always been proud to host my dining guests at Newman’; the food and service is unequaled in the local area. So, the drop in rating has more to do with the alarming effects COVID-19 has had on supply chain logistics than any fault with the food & service.
For as long as I’ve been going to Newman’s the Chef has created a new Menu every week which only lasts from Thursday thru Sunday. Currently, the Chef has no choice but to work with what he knows will be available for more that a week. The current menu that I used 4 days ago was the “June” menu. The Chef and Management have no control over this situation and will most-likely return to a true “Farm-to-fork” dining experience as soon as that becomes viable. Those of you who dine-out regularly have no doubt experienced this in other restaurants, because this is an industry-wide problem.
I plan on continuing to dine at this venue and still recommend it highly.
Due to distancing, easier to converse with dinner partner
Wonderful. We so enjoyed everything!
We will be back
An absolutely wonderful dining experience in the mountains. The service, food, wine and ambiance was outstanding. Looking forward to returning!
Truly outstanding! It is very rare that three people agree that every aspect of a four-course meal was perfectly executed, down to the after-dinner espressos! The service was impeccable, and the atomosphere is wonderful. Newman's is a real gem.
