The food is all canned and will come out immediately. The waiters are there to optimize the speed and will literally throw plates in front of you and run away. The food is overpriced with horrible presentation.

the food and service are excellent. The dress code could be a little more refined. Some of the diners did not dress as though they were eating in a fine dining restaurant with a elegant atmosphere.

Fabulous service and beautifully prepared food. I only wish they would vary the menu day to day for those staying at the resort for multiple nights, especially those of us who are vegetarian and have the same offering over and over (pasta at both high end restaurants at the resort). They do have a vegan menu but it only offers tofu alternatives.

The food was excellent. Party of six had a wide selection of entrees and appetizers/salads. Everything was prepared well and very tasty. Server was attentive and amusing. The service pace was “leisurely”, but not what I would consider excessively slow. The room was attractive and we were seated at the edge of the raised ceiling surrounded by ornate columns and trim work. Pricing was on the high side and the selections were somewhat limited. While dinner was very good, the value for the price paid was underwhelming. It was as expected as far as the experience of the more formal resort dining room than a value proposition. Glad we went, but would likely not need to do again.

Jackie, our server, was wonderful! She was great with our grands and helped with any dietary needs we had. The kitchen worked with our gluten free and garlic free requests without delay. One big change...the menu does not change daily as we remembered from past visits...it is a set menu. We were not able to make reservations in other locations to vary the offerings as there were no available dining times before 8:30 in those venues. Suggest that reservations to dine be made well in advance. Nevertheless...we enjoyed our dining experience and our time with family!

Overpriced Mediocre food. Very small portions. Very limited menu with almost no appetizers. Hurried service. No ambiance due to very loud noise level. Elegance is no longer.

It's a nice experience to eat in the Dining Room. The food portions are a bit small for the price, hence the stars. The food is tasty, but I prefer the food in the Jefferson better. The service is always excellent.

Food was OK and the value was not worth $140, and we did not even get a starter. It was hot near the windows and could not hear any music and no opportunity to dance. Even though open table asked, and I let them know it was our 35th anniversary, no mention was made of it. We loved the homestead but the dining room dinner was not something I would recommend.

Have been to Homestead many times before & this visit was disappointing. Waiter never refilled water nor asked about our service. He just put food down & came back to pick up the plates when finished. Waiter did not even serve & pick up from proper side. Food was very good, but not as we remember in the past-smaller portions. This was our anniversary dinner and I wrote that on the reservation but no mention was ever made of it. Even the morning buffet has been down-sized from our prior visits. I’ll visit Greenbrier instead of Homestead next time.

We had an incredible meal! Dined early with our 3 Kids (at 5:30pm) so it was perfect timing the live band started playing at 6pm with such beautiful music, food that came out was all incredibly delicious and had such beautiful presentation. It was good Friday today so we couldn’t eat meat but the trout entree was delicious, very French vibe to it, nice creamy but light sauce underneath so you can have as much as you needed and it wasn’t overwhelming. My Kids even ate some of the fish they loved the flavor so much. We also had the Mushroom “scallops” from the Vegan menu and let me tell you—it was like a work of culinary art and just a flavor bomb—the flavors came together beautifully. The salads we had were also very tasty—and the dessert, the Hummingbird dessert we had with the wine pairing was just perfect. The elderflower serbet that came on the side of that was absolutely amazing and brought that whole dessert together so beautifully. Service and timing was wonderful—Christian took such good care of us and made our anniversary dinner so special—thank you so much!!! Definitely ranks one of the best dinners we’ve had, and we are foodies from a big city! Highly recommend!

For the price of a $200 tab for two people the food was very poor....salad was good but overall I have had better meals flying business class to Europe.....maybe do high end Italian with brick oven pizza or use the Jefferson dining room menu as it was excellent however!!!!
Service was excellent just the food was poor....attire was very relaxed.... I thought a jacket was required then I saw jeans and Hawaiian shirts.... live music was way old probably could have had a Dinner jazz DJ and faired better.... look I would go back to the resort.... but not the Main Dining room!
