    Fantastic place, we had incredible service, absolutely loved the grounds and the building was amazing. We had two of the best appetizers (abalone and oysters) and two super unique and tasty desserts. The black cod entree was worth every penny and I would eat that down everyday for the rest of my life, but unfortunately our other two entrees were not the greatest, and they were actually the pricier ones (duck & steak) but not sure I would change a thing because overall the experience was great. Will be back.

    We did the intimate wine cellar dinner with wine pairing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. The service was outstanding and the added bonus of the property tour, learning the history of the amazing gardens and buildings and the tour of the wine cellar at the hands of the warm and knowledgeable guide was outstanding! The staff made every thing special.

    The service was truly exceptional. I ordered the ribs which were delicious, but it came with French fries which were nothing of note. My husband ordered the filet and really enjoyed it. The chocolate Crème brûlée for desert was also a great choice.

    We had to hunt down a hostess after hunting down the parking attendant We were told we had to move from the Stonehouse due to a special event, but the patio area was pleasant enough and the service and background music were excellent.  Our party of four ordered basket of pastries breakfast burrito, oatmeal, eggs Florentine, and bagel with lox. Other than the thick cut red onion and embarrassingly(should’ve been to the kitchen) unripe tomato’s everything was great, if a bit overpriced. The grounds were exceptionally lovely an we were allowed to wander in the common areas after dining.
