    Kudos to Cameron and the kitchen for delicious tapas. We enjoyed six plates and finished with ice cream sated. It’s one of our favourites stops going to and coming back from our snowbird winter vacation.

    We ordered an appetizer to share, and we ordered a salad to share as well. Both were  outstanding. We each ordered an entrée, and both of them were very overcooked and dry .  Neither one of us were able to eat our entrées.  we did give that information to our waitress who was very nice and she said she would mention it to the staff Cook. I think we would go again for a cocktail and some appetizers, but I would be hesitant to order anything other than that

    This was my 3rd or 4th time dining here. We’ve loved it every time, but this visit fell short. We didn’t find any of the plates outstanding as with previous visits. The squash dish was disappointing and lacking in flavor. We did enjoy the duck and gnocchi, but could have used more gnocchi.

    Such a great experience! We drive from Montreal every few months to North Carolina and the Ridge Room is always our stopover for the night. The drinks are excellent, the food is delicious, we’ve had the crab cakes, fish tacos, warm Brie , and charcuterie board and everything is very tasty. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxing, nice views, comfy fireplace and nice antler chandeliers ! We look forward to our next visit !

    The food was ok but lacking seasoning to make it great. We had tuna tartare, duck confit & mushroom soup. All were bland. Service at the table was good but the bartenders were lacking customer service. Not many smiling or engaging with customers. Drinks were decent but the environment at a bar should be lighter & more interactive.

    My husband & I consider ourselves reluctant foodies (too busy to cook) and eat out a lot; we usually, however, do not frequent hotel restaurants. This one is a BIG exception - everything about it is fantastic: the view, the decor and the staff are all great. But the food is what keeps us coming back - it's more than several steps above your typical pub food. The chef is meticulous and adventurous, frequently changing the menu, much to our delight. It's a Tapas restaurant with a gourmet flare. We go at least twice a month. Don't miss it!

    Great meal by the fireplace. Enjoyed all the drinks, appetizers and entrees. Our party of 4 very much enjoyed the excellent SWEET POTATO GRATIN, CURED & SMOKED SALMON, GLENDOR FARM CIDER BRAISED SHORT RIB RAGU, GLEN ECO FARM DEVILED EGGS, FAE & FAUNA MUSHROOM & BRIE FLATBREAD with prosciutto, and the MEATBALLS BOLOGNESE. The COMFORTABLY NUMB dessert drink with mozart chocolate cream | cointreau | cocoa bitters was a delightful finishing touch! We'll be back soon!!

    The food and drinks were good but expensive. You pay for the ambiance. Also the way they separate the checks is frustrating. I'm sure many in our party will not go back again for that reason.

    Was blown away by the Ridge Room. Cocktails were on point. Food was very good. Atmosphere was great too. The only thing I’d knock was that you can tell that some of the food is premade. I ordered the Pork Belly and the Crab Cake small plates. Flavor wise they were excellent. However, the pork belly was a little dried out. You could tell it was reheated. The same with the crab cake. My wife enjoyed the short rib and my son loved the meatballs. The cheese platter was great too. The candies pecans were over the top. All in all a great experience

    The deviled eggs were fabulous. I had the hickory smoked chicken thigh. All of the flavors blended so well. It is probably the best chicken dish I have had in a long time. My companion had the short ribs and he too cleaned his plate — even the grits!
