    The concept is great. There aren't many places in Knoxville to get a high caliber tasting experience without it being a private event. We were excited to be celebrating my husbands birthday with the Chef's Tasting experience. Unfortunately, the experience fell flat for us. Like another reviewer, service caused the dinner to fall short. When you are paying $125/person for dinner (before alcohol), expectations are high. Upon arrival, parking is a little confusing, but the staff was very friendly and advised where to park. They escorted us down to the restaurant, beautifully set - simple and elegant, and the views are gorgeous. The location/lodge is really nice. We were immediately sat in a little booth in corner, very quaint. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, but a larger group of guests of the lodge were gathering outside. It took some time to even be greeted at our table. Menus for tasting weren't available and it wasn't until the 4th course we received them. It took two requests for sparking water. The chef is exceptionally talented and it was apparent in his food. He presented the first four courses and then was pulled into a conversation with the Manager and an unsatisfied guest. That was the last time we saw the chef. The remaining courses were dropped off by other staff members. This was really disappointing. We would have loved to talk to the chef about the food we had just tasted and learned more about the ingredients like the first few courses we experienced. The manager stopped by the table but didn't really introduce himself or offer any conversation, only asked us how were doing. Overall, the experience didn't live up to the price. Service should be impeccable, but was mediocre at best. There was no acknowledgement of the birthday we were celebrating even after noting it & speaking to someone confirming the reservation and them taking his name. I hope they can find ways to improve the service as the chef is really talented.

    Our first visit and we had hoped to love it. It is in an outstanding, unique setting and the restaurant itself is lovely. Service was clunky/tentative and untimely. Some food was lukewarm rather than hot. We were impressed with the escort by Jack to the restaurant from the parking lot. Unfortunately, it took a few minutes to be greeted by the hostess when we walked in. Our initial impression took a nose dive. We had hoped the server would be great but she wasn’t. Overpriced for the experience. The restaurant has tremendous potential and we hope it succeeds however there is work to be done!

    I want to recommend Windy Hill Farm and Reserve as a great place for dinners, special occasions, and brunch. We did brunch today and had a great meal. The entire staff is excellent, but we especially loved the care we got from our server Isabella, she was wonderful as always...very nice experience, we highly recommend this establishment!

    Food was wonderful waitress was great however the surprise ending to the night was the wonderful 40.00 service charge that was added to our bill!!! Did not include the tip and waitress suffered because we would have tipped 20 to 25 percent but can’t afford it on an already expensive dinner If you are going to add a service charge tell the customer up front Going out to eat is expensive enough but an extra forty for everyone else is ridiculous Unfortunately we will never go back even though food and service very good !
    Wilder at Windy Hill Farm and PreserveResponded on March 5, 2024
    Walter, I'm so sorry that was not clearly communicated. It is noted on the reservation detail page, but we will make it more clear on the main page as well. Just for reference, our servers' compensation is not based on tips like most restaurants and a portion of that service charge does go to every employee who was part of your experience. There is no expectation of a gratuity above the service charge. Again, we apologize this made for an uncomfortable situation. We do hope you'll come see us again!

    Our four-course dinner was outstanding, service was phenomenal, and the views from the restaurant are to die for. After our dinner the chef came out and greeted us and told us more about their garden and lodging. There was a 20% service fee on our bill and tipping was optional. Such an amazing experience!!! We will definitely return to Windy Hill Farm for any special occasion or when they have live music!

    Outstanding! Food, service, hospitality and atmosphere were all great. There was a live musician and it was a little loud to have good conversation at the table. Can’t wait to go back when it is not raining and dark.

    Thanks Teresa! Yes, please do come back when it's warmer and you can enjoy dinner on our patio. The views are incredible!
