Awesome spot, we were staying in our Motorhome as a Harvest Host guest. Food was very good, service amazing, my only complaint was the salad could have been fresher.

We decided to take a short trip to St Francisville. My wife is a pescatarian and they modified their standard tasting menu to accommodate her. Food was really good and we enjoyed the whole evening.

This was the best restaurant I’ve been to in years! I forgot what it’s like to eat at a local restaurant with all fresh ingredients with a chef that has so much pride and attention to detail in everything that comes out the kitchen! Amazing experience, awesome drinks, incredible food, and remarkable service! 5 Stars! Truly one of a kind! Can’t wait to go back!

Delicious meal and excellent service in a lovely restaurant! Nice ambiance! Short ribs were tender and perfectly seasoned. Shrimp and grits were good, though a little too charred and salty. The beet salad was also exceptional. Bees Knees cocktail was a hit, pomegranate cocktail was too sweet. Definitely will return!

It was a lovely setting. The atmosphere and decor were nice.

Food was ok, hearth cornbread was a little dry. But the fried pickled okra was nice, and my husband really liked the General Tso’s cauliflower. The fried rabbit was heavily breaded, and pretty salty. The steak was average.

The service was ok, a little slow, and a bit unprofessional.

Overall - it was an ok experience. Too pricy for the food quality and unprofessional wait staff. Not sure if we will return.

A for effort. A little out of text for the modern "lodge feel" of the restaurant. Not southern feeling at all, for a restaurant on a plantation.
Food was good and the staff were friendly.

Service was very good. waiter suggested a great wine. Short ribs were great. Scallops were delicious but not enough food for me. Need something else on the plate. Overall, a good experience.

This was for my wife’s birthday. We brought our two sons, 6 & 2. They were more than accommodating. Food was awesome service was great. Boudin balls need more pepper jelly though. The crab and spinach dip was unbelievable. I will be back so I can dig at the bar next to the hearth.

Luke was my server and I could not have asked for a better one. He was knowledgeable, attentive, thoughtful, and capable.
The food was incredible, and I had every course, from cocktail to dessert & coffee. There wasn’t a single wrong note.
My experience was exceptional.

A few months back we were blown away with the service and the food was amazing. This time our waiter very seldom checked on us and the food was very disappointing. Scallops were very gritty appearing to not have been cleaned properly before being cooked. They steak was overcooked with a heavy salty charr. We drove 1 1/2 just for dinner there but may not make the trip back.
