Winvian Farms Ratings and Reviews
Upon entering the private gate and being greeted by name by the valet and escorted to the table we had high hopes. Unfortunately the service didn't match the first 5 minutes of arrival. It took me asking for service to get a glass of wine. The demeanor of the waiter was one of irreverence. The food was good, but soured by the service. This included having to hail the waiter for a second glass (and I'm not that impatient).
The grounds are beautiful. The main house, where the restaurant is, is great. Ask for the table by the fireplace.
Downstairs is a bar with pool, shuffleboard and fooseball. While that sounds cheesy, it fit very well and was done tastefully.
All in all we are unsure the price had equaled the service we would typically expect. It would be as easy p as smiling and asking if we have enough to drink.
100% wheelchair accessible.
Winvian is hands down the best restaurant experience you will get. From arriving at the gate, greeting by valet, the restaurant and most notably the food, it is amazing in every regard. If you are looking to have an elegant meal at a special place look no further. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. The meal options always change and they are very diverse. The culinary creativity is amazing.
The evening was wonderful. Everything perfect EXCEPT the fireplace was smoking and I had to take the clothes I wore to the cleaners the next day. Regretfully I’ve had the same problem several times in different dining rooms. I would dine there far more frequently if you could solve this proble.
Winvian is rather pricey. For the $$$$ they charge for a night's stay they should include some minor amenities at no charge. That being said they do include a wonderful breakfast with your stay and their cottages are so wonderfully unique. But it may end up being a once in a lifetime experience.
For most people this is a special occasion place but be warned that it will increase your desire for more special occasions. The flavors are wonderful, the service impeccable and the ambiance perfect country. It is pricey but it is fixed price for three or four courses so there are no surprises (except maybe the charge for water). Service is always ready when you are but never hovering. The blends of garden fresh ingredients far surpasses the "farm to table" craze and is masterfully done with style and perfection. There are few places in the world that offer a more rewarding dining experience.
Winvian has never disappointed with the quality of the food, the ambience, or the service. The tasting menu has so many great options we couldn't choose between some of them and ended up ordering both and sharing! Summer and Fall are especially nice times to go as the majority of vegetables come from the gardens at Winvian and are so fresh - you can really taste the difference. This past meal, another guest arranged a surprise fireworks show for his wife's birthday and all the diners went outside to watch the show. It was truly special and fun! We love this spot and will come back again and again.
We stayed here for our 5 year anniversary. My husband will often say that he's slightly disenchanted with the whole farm to table movement but we were both blown away by the quality of the ingredients and how they all seemed to shine in the well composed dishes. There was nothing we would change about the meal and was everything we ever hoped farm to table would be. Excellent, excellent experience! Thank you for making our anniversary so special and for giving us such a spectacular meal!
This was a treasure of a find!
Exceptional food, we had steak & a side salad. The salad was very creative, a land mine of wonderful flavors, and visually splendid.
The wine was delicious for a budget wine ("Educated Guess")although they have an extensive wine list ranging from $14/glass to $2600/bottle (from what I saw, they mayhave offer more?) and the dessert really made the meal, small but Wow!
We smiled the entire time.
Superb all around! Our experience at Winvian was first class. From the moment we entered the property, to the impeccable attention to detail, everything associated with this meal was outstanding. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant is perfect for romance. The service is attentive, but not overpowering. The food is superb. We absolutely love the Winvian.
Super fancy- like too fancy. It seemed like the other (loud, obnoxious) customers were there to prove that they could go to the fanciest spot, and weren't really appreciative of the sustainability of the food. Also, I know that the restaurant doesn't grow ALL of its own food, and I would have liked to know the other farms they work with.b
Tucked away in Morris, this gem is wonderful for any special occasion.
Service is impeccable. Warm and efficient without being hovering. We enjoyed lunch there
this past weekend. Our table over looked the grounds which are lovely even in the bare
winter months. Our meal was fabulous from appetizer to dessert. We left feeling content, happy and pampered.
The very creative dishes were only surpassed by the excellent, friendly service. Our birthday event for two couples could not have been better. From the moment you enter Winvian you are greeted like a guest in a private home. The atmosphere and the many charming rooms for dining allow for a quiet, personal place for special occasions or for anytime you want to be pampered with excellent, quality, creative food and superb, professional service. The timing of the service was impeccable allowing us to savor each course without feeling rushed. The chefs surprise extras were delicious and very welcome. A must visit for anyone demanding perfection.
Every bite was an explosion of flavor, from the small garnish to the entree. The selections were unusual and so fresh. The dressings were wonderful, and we were pleasantly surprised by the little "extras" such as duck pate, pea soup, breads and cookies. It was so nice that the holiday decorations were still up, and we were thrilled with the roaring fire, and only 3 tables in our room
Food quality and presentation was excellent. Service struck just the right tone. Informed, charming, seemed to appear only when needed, without beckoning. Clearly, the staff was attuned to our schedule, not their schedule. An important thing at a place this exclusive and expensive.
Winvian is a top end, elegant restaurant in a relaxed, pleasant country atmosphere.. The menu is limited but imaginative. Each dish is memorable. The wine list is extensive, and also pretty pricey. My only hesitation in recommending Winvian is that the cost is high, particularly for the area. Would have to be a special occasion for me.
This was our second trip to Winvian ,not sure if it was any better than the first trip which was amazing.The service and the food are excellent ,the restaurant and the grounds are beautiful well worth the trip .
Looking forward to spending a night at one of the cabins .
