Taste, Wood-Fired Kitchen is Nicewonder Farm & Vineyards’ inaugural restaurant. Set in the middle of a 450 acre farm with a 12-acre vineyard, Taste has a unique open-air design that showcases unparalleled views of the vineyards, rolling hills, and surrounding Southwest Virginia views and serving the finest in Appalachian inspired cuisine (not to mention the odd eclectic features that change on a whim).

Taste’s menu was created for sharing and is perfect as a family-style dinner with hearty portions and incredibly diverse choices. Guests may enjoy one of Nicewonder Vineyards’ award-winning wines as a tasting flight accompanying dinner, or while relaxing at the hand-crafted zinc bar.

Great for year-round dining, regardless of the weather. When it is warm, the sides go up to enjoy fresh open-air dining, when it gets cold, the sides are down and the heaters keep you warm and toasty.

    Worst value and quality for the money that we have experienced in many years. I don’t usually take the time to fill these forms out, but I am still so disappointed in our experience last night that I feel compelled to warn others. $40 charcuterie board only meat with generic Ritz crackers, had to order a separate plate for cheese and yet another separate order for hams and spreads..but the $40 board would have gone to waste if not ordered. Other dishes were mediocre at best, service poor and defensive nature when we politely questioned what we felt had to be a mistake. We never got silverware for every member of our party, no separate plates for appetizers or water refills. Just in general a poor experience and way overrated and overpriced for what it was.

    Manager Jarod was excellent. Our first time here and couldn’t be happier. Brought wife for her birthday. Reservation table was ready near a nice fire. It was a little cold and they moved us no problem. Food was some of the best we have ever had. Steak was cooked to perfection. Worth every penny. Great job. I like cold beer also and they had plenty of those crispy cold ones.

    I had family visiting from out of state interested in renting a yurt. Our dining experience proved to be very disappointing with selection choices. We ordered king prawn shrimp and basically got “creek” shrimp instead. Wait staff assured us they prepared what was delivered from suppliers. Trout, the catch of the day was not filleted and that was not disclosed. Overall sadly a disappointing experience. As a local resident I wish I could recommend this restaurant but I can’t at this time.

    Food was very disappointing. Gumbo was the worst I have ever had. Other guests commented that Dominos pizza is better. $100 for party of 4. Everyone was dissatisfied with her meal. Plenty of better places to eat for the money.

    I wanted to fall in love with this place after visiting the website, I love vineyards and farm to table restaurants. However, this was far from what we expected. Beautiful property and an unexpected find for the area. The Inn looks beautiful , but the restaurant is located away from the Inn. It only seems appropriate for outdoor casual eating. For Winter time they had plastic walls. Very rustic, the ambiance did not feel like upscale eating, but the prices for wine tasting and food were way too high. Small portions. Paper plates do not make any sense if you are going to charge so much for the food. We ordered the Steak for two that was $72. We got a small tray with a medium size Steak that had no flavor, a tiny salad and a small side of potatoes. The sides were yummy but not even enough for one person. If they make some improvements to the restaurant, the menu and the prices, we would give them another chance. We don’t mind paying for a good meal, but this was a huge waste of money this time. Service was very good though, our server was very nice and sweet.

    they have a really cool rustic setting, when it rains the tin roof sounds awesome, the wine from their vineyard is phenomenal (i'm not a huge wine guy but the Merlot is awesome), and the food is really great.

    Visited the restaurant for Valentine’s Day weekend and was extremely disappointed. Service was good. The restaurant was very cold as it’s a basically a large tent over a really nice pavilion. The dinner for 2 tasted fine however the portions were incredibly underwhelming. For a dinner over $200 we did not expect to leave hungry.

    food was good, but very small portions. wine was not good and very expensive, i.e. $14 for a small glass. 4 oysters rockafella was $14. it might be really nice in the fall or spring sitting outside with your own food and drink.

    Yet again, a masterful menu of culinary delights. We dined on New Year's Eve, and the 7-course fixed menu was a gastronomic delight. Chef Travis Milton showed once again why he's a two-time James Beard awardee. The wine pairing were perfect, and we were surprised at how good the Nicewonder wines were. This restaurant is a real treat, especially if you expand your thinking and try one of the amazing creations most people would pass on. I am more and more impressed every time we go there. On top of everything else, the staff are genuinely great people and add that little bit extra to an otherwise incredible experience.

    Food was good...not outstanding.... and the paper plates was a definite turn-off. I would expect the crackers to be of a higher quality than Ritz crackers served with the yummy cheeses and meats. Ambiance was wonderful with exceptional drinks and service. I imagine dining outdoors on a beautiful warm night to be very special considering the location.

    Food was fantastic and service was just as good. Value was fine until we received the bill and a 18% service fee was applied to all Bills. I understand that this is common practice at high dining establishments in big cities however for a restaurant thats really an outdoor facility that has to have plastic on three sides in the winter to operate, this isn't a high end restaurant that can get by with charging such a fee. We throughly enjoyed the food and drinks but because of that we will not be back..
