Each of the wait staff were so accommodating. Jessica, Carmen and Cory help each other out to make sure you have an excellent dining experience. The food is delicious and beautiful in the presentation of the food. The atmosphere is cozy, quiet and everyone seems to be enjoying there experience. The mountain views are beautiful too.

Gideon Ridge never fails to impress. As a party of five, we enjoyed a drink on the porch to watch the beautiful view and sunset. We opted to sit outside for our meal, but quickly realized it would be too cold. It was no problem - we were moved inside to a comfortable table immediately. Enjoyed excellent duck, tuna, fine wine and delicious desserts. A wonderful evening - highly recommended!

We had a wonderful dinner! Our food was fabulous. Husband had the pork loin chop and loved it. Chef made me a vegetable dinner that was off menu. It was amazing! We always love everything we order when we come. I can’t recommend it enough! It’s a must visit when we’re in Blowing Rock!

The Gideon Ridge restaurant was exceptional. Each course was perfection. It surprised us that our waiter had not been trained to serve from the left and remove from the right. It’s very , very awkward and disruptive to have a plate shoved across your face whilst you converse or sip your drink. There’s a very practical reason for these service rules. If they took time to train the staff then the experience would be perfect .

Almost perfect.
Food absolutely delicious and perfectly presented and served.
Only flaw was having to ask for bread and then having to ask young inexperienced server for plates
View is why people come to this area. Ambiance and table on terrace were wonderful.

Thank you so much for the exceptional service, excellent food and amazing dining experience. We were there on Friday evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our server was attentive, gave great recommendations and took amazing care of us. We loved the added touch of the glass of champagne when we were first seated. Also a great touch to have the chef visit our table.

We come frequently and always find every appetizer and salad great and pretty creative and using local produce. The halibut is awesome well so are the desserts. Service is excellent. Abit pricey but so very very good and outdoor dining is so neat too!

Dinner was perfect! Outstanding views from the terrace . Great service- kudos to Kat for making it a “purrfect” evening. Every dish we had was great- escargot, sashita peppers, strachiatella salad, duck breast and Halibut. Chocolate cake was divine. Chef checked in on us at the end which was a nice personal touch. The very best dining experience we have had in BR.

Absolutely perfect evening in every way. Fortunately we were able to eat outside on a perfect evening. However the dining room looked lovely should we have had to eat there it also looked like it would be a wonderful atmosphere. Look forward to another evening and hopefully a stay there.

Superb, you owe it to yourself to experience this marvelous resturant and its service. Words cannot begin to describe your walk into the elegance of the past. The ambiance of sitting outside overlooking the mtn. tops, the beautifully arranged presentation of every mouthwatering bite, and service that is next to no other. Ask for Jessica, she is one you'll not forget.
