On our first visit here we had a wonderful time. Food and service was all top notch. Can’t wait to go back again soon.
Excellent dinner with attentive service. Wonderful, comfortable atmosphere. Looking forward to a return visit soon.
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.
Wonderful dining experience in a beautiful setting.
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.
An incredible dining experience from the ambience to the wonderfully prepared menu choices. The staff was top notch and
Although priced higher, you certainly leave feeling that you’ve received a great value!!
Top notch! By far, the best meal I have ever experienced. Service, ambiance, food quality - all excellent!
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.
Exceeded expectations !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everything was just perfect, except the price. It was very expensive. The only time we would consider dining at the Winvian again is for a very special occasion.
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 celebrated Rob's birthday and stayed at Winivan. Everything was amazing! From complimentary gourmet breakfast to our amazing dinner celebration. Food was fabulous. Thank you
Super.. wonderful experience.. have a cocktail on the terrace before dinner and drink in the Litchfield countryside
Fanstastic food and service. Just very pricey to go there too often.
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!
