It was okay, salad was great but the entrees all were lacking in flavor and the broccolini was burned. Dessert was very good.

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!

My wife and I tried Sheffield’s out on 04/09/21 celebrating our 5 year anniversary. We had reservations in advance. The service was good, our waiter was attentive. The atmosphere was nice, they had someone playing piano which was also nice. I wasn’t very impressed with the food, the plating was nice though. I ordered their version of paella and it was just okay, also my wife’s gnocchi dish and our hummus appetizer were just okay. The only thing that I thought was done really well were the biscuit appetizers with the honey butter. I was disappointed they only had two desserts to choose from, I wish they would of had a few more options for dessert. They didn’t do anything special for it being our anniversary, not a big deal but would have been nice. Definitely was not “wowed” from my initial experience at Sheffield’s but may give it another chance.

Service was awesome. Easter Sunday brunch. There were only 5food items on the table to chose from. No presentation at all. Butter and jelly packets just laying on table. There wasn’t one vegetable, fruit or salad available. Guess if I was on keto diet it may have been ok. For 45.00 a person I expected much more than scramble eggs and bacon. I really wanted it to be a great experience because the restaurant and grounds are extraordinary.

The setting is very enjoyable and the food is good, but not outstanding. The young gentleman who waited on us was pleasant, attentive, and did an excellent job.
The piano music was over powering when sitting in the same room. Loved the music but when seated in the same room it is almost impossible to have a conversation.

The wait staff is not trained, they must have recruited from a closed Churches Chicken restaurant.
Not enough staff to serve- even if they were trained .
Food - overpriced

Thank you for joining us an we hope you return soon. As our Executive Chef Jeff Hairston and team make everything in house, including our breads, desserts, pimento cheese and truly anything that can be made in house, that work and those ingredients are of a very high quality, therefore require a higher price point. Therefore, we hope you did enjoy your dining as well as the ambiance, as we strive to provide live music and a wonderful all around experience. We hope you return soon and often.

We were a party of just two, so we were seated at a table with drop leaves on 2 sides - which left no place for our knees under the table. So we had the waiter turn the table end-on and that was fixed. The living room lounge chairs were too low to be comfortable while eating. Nevertheless the food and service were excellent, and the ambiance was sumptuous. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal but would have preferred not getting repeatedly blasted with cold air when the outdoor diners came and went through the patio door.
