I am sorry to have to say we were quite disappointed with our dinner. My husband ordered a cocktail to start and it didn’t come for about 20 minutes, well after my glass of wine.
He then ordered the daily special of French Onion soup which was completely inedible - very dark overly sweet soup base with little to no onions - we sent it back uneaten and were not offered to have it taken off the bill.
Our entrees, a burger and the scallops were delicious.

We couldn’t have had a more lovely dining experience! The food and wine was perfect! The staff we incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the wines and menu. In addition, the maitre’d took time to share some history of this historic resort and local knowledge. Absolutely 10/10! We can’t wait to go back!

This was a 3rd experience at the greystone within the past 2 years. The food is very good the wait staff is very friendly as was the bar staff, however service is very slow. I don't believe this is a reflection on the wait staff. If this is more a reflection on the kitchen. It was not very busy it was about 12:30 on a Sunday for brunch and we must have waited in our for our food. This Is exactly what happened on the prior visits to the greystone

The pictures online were not an accurate depiction of the ambiance, atmosphere, service, or dining quality. The food was poor, the service completely underwhelming, and the restaurant was located in a hideous, nondescript gray building. So very disappointed.

Sunday breakfast. Beautiful view. We ordered 2 eggs Benedict. 1 with country ham and 1 plain with a side of bacon. Coffee and hot water for tea came out quickly. After 10 minutes and asking twice, a selection of teas finally arrived. Many tables got their food before us, even though we were only 2. Finally when they arrived the country ham was so salty it could not be eaten. Horrible. The bacon was broken up and placed under the overcooked eggs of the other Benedict. The hollandaise sauce was delivered on the side for some reason. We were not asked how our meal was or why there was a large pile of shaved ham left on the plate when we finished. Glad I saw the place but we won't go back!

We really wanted to like this place, and judging by the ambiance and location this restaurant had great potential. Unfortunately potential is all they had! It was July 4th with intermittent showers in the area. We initially went to the main hotel which is not where the formal lakeside restaurant in located, which is down the hill on the waters edge. What could have been a great dinner, was ruined by the chef who seems to have developed a tolerance to OVERSALTING everything! Otherwise the food was just uninspiring and blah. The location is great and we would certainly entertain staying at this charming hotel, but won't be dining here again.

Thank you for your review. After being closed for many years, we have taken the huge undertaking of renovating and re-opening this extraordinary property which has now been open for just over a year. Our guest's experience means everything to us and we are sorry that we did not exceed your expectations. We appreciate your comments and our team is determined to do better. We are excited to launch our new menus next week and hope that you will consider giving us another chance.
