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.

We were here for a return visit. The place was very noisy due to a family reunion where there were 17 children under 13. We think we should have been given a call about this prior to arrival. Really changed our stay. Place was not equipped to handle this

Unfortunately they ran out of the dessert we said we wanted, but did not order it at the time our order was taken. It was only 8:30, but they ran out of chocolate soufflés. I would have thought they could have anticipated the demand for it.

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.

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

Much better than 2 yrs ago. Should offer a la carte selections instead of just pre fix starting at $99/person, and should not force the diner to pay a 20% tip on a $130 meal with 1 glass of wine per person

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.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on August 5, 2016

Food was great, fresh/quality ingredients and wonderful flavor. Portions are small which is good since this place is better for a romantic dinner (and you don't want to stuff yourself) but something to be noted when ordering. The menu changes daily so you're sure to have a special one-of-a-kind meal. It is quite pricey so I'd reserve this for special occasions only and not a nightly experience (if you're staying at Winvian Farms). They have a great drink selection as well for both wine and cocktails. Definitely a great birthday dinner for my husband.
