Excellent French Onion Soup and Halibut entrée. Great Christmas piano music in the background - highly recommend for a special occasion or night out.

There were 4 or 5 tables occupied the night we visited. There was only one waiter.
The waiter clearly was overwhelmed. I believe he was acting as the bartender as well. That said it was a 2 hour meal. The beef tartare with egg yolk and micro greens was amazing!! The portion was generous. One of my friends ordered the short ribs which he said was very good. My partner ordered the filet which was like butter. I had the scallop special on a bed of grits which was quite tasty. It is pricey but we will go back.

I was so disappointed at the quality of the food.The Gougères (French Cheese Puffs) were greasy and tasteless. My husband had a steak, it was OK at best. My seafood cannelloni was almost uneatable. Think the chef is way over his head. May need to simplify the menu. Our waitress and overall service was very good. Doubt we will return. It is a nice place though.

First class service. Our waiter was excellent. Some of the food, the appetizer and dessert were excellent. The main entrée.. the sides were not good. The main part of the entrée was tasty and good. Parking arrangements are poor. Great ambience. Low noise level but we were the only diners in the facility. Overall for the total cost vs. the total experience, we would select a different restaurant for fine dining special occasion type dinner

Our first time to Sheffield’s in several years. We split the sea bass and a filet and topped it off with Grand Marnier soufflé. Everything was amazing. Our server was still learning, but she was very pleasant. There was a pianist playing in the next room, which added to the atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

Our server, Patrick was very good. He was knowledgeable about both the wine and the menu. Both the salad and the entrees were well prepared and very good. We sat in the bar area, the historic building decor and the atmosphere were pleasant. We will definitely return for dinner again. The only complaint we had was the signage as to where the restaurant was on the property and the parking! All of us circled the block at least twice. We had been to the Stables years ago so we finally parked by the Stables and walked to the Stables restaurant for directions to Sheffields.

Fantastic venue for fine dining. A little confusing without having any real signage for first time diners. Other than that . Phenomenal all around from the drinks to the dessert. And a great place to walk off your dinner.

Rose Hill has done a wonderful job with updating the main house and dining room. Classy environment, good menu with lots of choices, service was attentive although kitchen a little slow but a sign of the times these days with limited staff.

Beyond gorgeous location, wonderful ambiance, lovely piano music, amazing food/cocktails/wine and excellent service! We ended the night with a beautiful walk past the Storybook Chapel and grounds down to The Stables for a drink and to hear the awesome band’s last set. A perfect date night!

Wonderful experience last Saturday. Food and service were great. I hate to leave a good review because I don't want the place to be so popular we can't get in. This is probably the nicest place in Aiken. A little more formal than the rest of Aiken.

The food was excellent. Somewhat southern, with fresh veggies and very well prepared. The collards were the best, as was the house salad. Service was excellent. The only issue I have with dining there is the fact that you park on the street. If it is raining, that is a problem. I will not let that stop me from going back as the food was worth it. Also, love the new decor and the piano playing.

We had a lovely first time experience. We took an elderly couple with us and we were concerned about the parking situation, but that was easily solved by. Entering the back of the building. Food was delicious, but we were a bit disappointed when there was no need on the menu to go with the red wine we had brought. Instead we went for bar drinks so expertly prepared by our server NED. In fact he was the only server that evening....He did an exemplary job considering the circumstances. Was even able to we've large group party in the back room celebrating a birthday. Ned was personable and hard-working. Something you rarely see in the service industry anymore. I know behind the scenes the owners are working hard to make Rose Hill a top drawer Aiken destination. While there is a few kinks to work out, Rose Hill is on their way to becoming a wonderful destination for your dining needs. Good luck and keep up the good work!
