Service and Food was phenomenal!!! We will return soon.
This was my first visit. The ambiance was everything and more! Who would not want to eat dinner in a castle. The service was top notch. The food menu was small but I prefer it that way rather than being overwhelmed. You definitely get your money’s worth. I would recommend bacon dates and bread basket for starters. Then either the pork chops or KC strip for dinner. For dessert you must get the blackberry raspberry cobbler. My friends are already planning to go back in a few weeks for a wine/dinner event. My only critique would be was sitting in the second floor. Even though it was May 1, it was stuffy and very warm. I would try to sit either on the first floor or outside.
The patio is a lovely place to dine! We had a wonderful birthday celebration complete with a little surprise. Can't wait to go again!
We had the wonderful opportunity to meet the spectacular owners of The Wandering Vine. Our waiter listened to every comment, even when not directed specifically at him, and made the experience so personal. It was an outstanding experience and I cannot wait to do it again.
Great experience in a neat venue.
First visit to this restaurant. Food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. Definitely be back.
Great food, great place and awesome staff!
This place has fabulous food, great staff and the castle is charming. Nice to have something upscale in town
If you have not been here yet it is a must! The chef is amazing, owners are delightful, wine is fabulous, ambiance takes you to another time and place of a romantic whimsical era and the service is impeccable. Put this on your to do list!
We had such a good time at The Castle for a birthday lunch. The food was excellent, the company perfect, the service more than we expected. This building has a special place in our hearts. Our grandparents lived here with an aunt & cousin for 20 years in the 1950"s and 60"s and we're so happy it's going to be well cared for. The new owners get an A+ and our family will be enjoying many good meals & times here.
Outstanding, we will be back!
Besides the historic beauty and ambience of the castle, the wine was very good, the food was unique, fresh herbs and ingredients just delicious! It's nice that they offer small plates also. Just a wonderful night and experience.
A jewel in the heart of Shawnee. The food was excellent. Service and atmosphere was one of the best in the metro. We loved the story and gift. Don't want to give that away. You have to go to and experience it yourself.
The "local flight" and cheese plate "bite" was good. The beef-bison burger was overpowered by the excessive mustard but the fries were good. An incorrect wine flight was served. The port from Portugal was the worst we have ever tried. Carla (owner) was very friendly but not able to provide details about the Mother's Day lunch, except for the price. The server was less friendly than Carla. They can serve "gluten free", which means removing the bread or cracker from the plate (or providing rice crackers).
Outstanding service from the time you walk through the door. The owner stops by your table to introduce herself and welcome you. The food is beyond outstanding! Hannah Winnett the executive chef is simply amazing with her creativity with food, your palette will definitely be delighted!
Just a great place! Can’t wait to go back.
We all really enjoyed our food, the service was professional and attentive. The menu is fairly limited, however, and I feel it's a bit overpriced. I had 2 glasses of the least expensive wine and one of the lesser priced entrees, and before tip it was about $54. They do offer small plates, which might be an option. There's a lovely terrace in the rear with tables for warmer weather.
Had to wait over 45 minutes for a table and kept getting told it would be ready in a few minutes; and this was with a reservation. No hostess on staff to ask, so had to grab the random server walking by. Once we got seated, it was no better. Forgot to give us all the menus and then server disappeared for another 20 or so minutes before coming back with correct menus. Everything was a long wait, which really made it hard to enjoy the experience. We’re hoping it’s just growing pains and will get better with time, as we would like to go back and have a good experience, as the venue is beautiful!
Good food and great atmosphere.
Wonderful ambiance, excellent wine choices, great food and wonderful service. Beautiful birthday celebration.
Amazing local venue with amazing food and great, authentic service.
It felt like we were guests at someone’s home. The food, service and atmosphere was all excellent.
We came here for Easter brunch and it was a fantastic experience. From the service to the food, everything was exceptional and I am looking forward to coming back.
Easter brunch. This was a wonderful restaurant, definitely will become a favorite
Perfect for date night or any night. Friendly staff, owners are terrific!
This place is a gem. Their wine flights are fantastic. My wife and have been there twice already and the food has always been top notch. The staff is all very attentive and the owners come around to meet diners frequently. We talked to them both times we were there. They have a nice tap selection as well if wine is not your jam.
The large patio is quiet and gorgeous this tone of year. Definitely worth your time!!
Best restaurant in Shawnee.
Tried this for my Parent’s 40th Anniversary!
Was a wonderful choice.
My mom was given a rose with case and both parents received lots of Congratulations!
All the staff were Friendly and Accommodating!
Cant wait to return!
Wonderful restaurant! Great wine, food, and service. Will definitely be back, and can’t wait to enjoy the patio when it’s warmer.
What a beautiful restaurant! Carla gave us a tour.... beautiful castle main eating level, stairs up to another great eating loft space, lovely large outside patio, basement wine cellar/event space, and a to go wine purchase back area ...
And the menu/food was unique and delicious... highly recommend!
Everything was so good! It was an impromptu date night and they exceeded our expectations. Food was great, service was great, and the place is beautiful. We will definitely be back!
So romantic. Food was out of this world. Service was excellent!
Wonderful restaurant with great owners! Truly a gem with the way they have reinvigorated the Castle!
This was our first time at The Castle, and we will be back! Evan, our waiter, was excellent. Chris, the manager, made our experience even more personable and was very genuine!
The server did a great job and was friendly.
Excellent food-creative and delicious! Good enough for “Foodies” and those who want just good, comfort food. Wine choices are diverse and unique. The wine flights allow for multiple tastings during your meal. This is a great addition to the Shawnee food scene bringing some balance to the fast food options that tend to dominate Shawnee and if you don’t live in Shawnee, it’s worth the drive across town!
Best French toast I ever had! The atmosphere and the staff were wonderful and welcoming. Overall a very pleasant experience!
Lovely venue, delicious brunch and gracious visit at our table by the owner, whom we enjoyed talking with. We look forward to another visit soon!
Anniversary dinner. Gave us a quiet table by a fireplace. Appetizers, wine flights, food, service all exceptional. We'll be back!
