My steak was not medium well. It was not butterflied. I had to wait for it to go back to the kitchen and cook some more. We were waiting around for water, my cocktail was forgotten, we had to ask for silverware, and it was just a bad night. The waitress didn’t seem to really know what she was doing.

Food was pricey and just okay, nothing new or amazing. Service was not the best. It’s called the Winery but I had to ask myself for an ice bucket for the bottle of wine I ordered. The server did not even help us to put the bottle in the ice bucket or to refill our glasses. I expected more.

Food and service has always been excellent. I feel the value and price is a bit steep. Our party of 4 spent 500 with tip for drinks, appetizers and entrees.

Our overall experience was good. Service was a little bit lacking. The food on the other hand was delicious! We ran out of room for dessert, so we’ll probably make one more trip out to see how good they are. Overall, not a bad dining experience.

My nephew and I were here to celebrate him going back to school after a year of distance learning and part time school. It was a reason to celebrate and everyone at The Winery made us feel very special. It was not a place I would have chosen, since it is off the beaten path for us. I had a gift card, but I know we will be back. Paul our waiter was kind and solicitous. I was surprised that they had great choices for an eight year old. The food was great and everyone was great. We have already been back and I know we will return again and again. A great experience. And we loved the nearby Koi Pond. And the food was great. The bread is worth the price.

Absolutely beautiful Easter at The Winery! Fantastic wine list, delicious French 75, excellent food! The best part was the excellent service from the flexible hostess to the attentive manager. A special shout out to the warm, knowledgeable and friendly bar staff/servers, Jordan and Michael. Super guys! A truly lovely day!

Went here with our daughter and her boyfriend for dinner. We started with oysters which were amazing. We had the cantaloupe martins and the espresso old fashion. They were delicious. We each Hassan different entree but all of them spectacular. Our server was great and she kept checking on us throughout our meal.

We didn’t try dessert but I am sure it’s great too. The ambiance was do nice will definitely go back again.
