Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was my first visit to The Spring House. It was very nice and laid back. We arrived early for our reservation so we had drinks in the library bar which were good but a bit pricey. After we were seated in a very quiet area we had a glass of wine and ordered the bread appetizer which was exceptional. The menu is seasonal and I ordered the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon. It came with broccolini andca sweet potato. My date ordered the portabella mushroom caps. Both dishes were really complex with smooth flavors. We capped off our dinner with bread pudding for dessert. We will definitely come back again.
Beautiful place with excellent service, but neither my wife or I enjoyed our food. My wife ordered the fillet minion and the cut looked unusual, the cheese based topping was a little over the top. I ordered a spicy bison meatloaf and while I expected spicy, the spice was over powering, all you could taste was red pepper . Side dishes and appetizers were ok. Food I guess was just not our taste.
The Spring House is a great restaurant inside a charming 1920's house. The atmosphere is cozy and very comfortable. Menu selections are varied and our table sampled about all of the offered menu dishes, from buffalo to duck. Each entree was presented well and the flavors were unique and savory. The duck soup was a pleasant surprise and I would highly recommend it. Prices are a little on the high side, but the food and experience was well worth it. We stayed at the Cardinal and found the walking distance to the Spring House presented a nice stroll. Definitely will come back!
Was really looking forward to trying this restaurant; however, the steak had bits of burnt meat stuck to the steak from a dirty grill. I asked for a box and brought it home for my dog to eat. I ended up only eating the sides which were very good. We also got desserts and they were quite delicious. Don't believe that I will be coming back to dine.
We had read wonderful reviews online for the Spring House and immediately made reservations with high anticipation of our evening. Sadly, we were greatly disappointed!
- Service was very poor: 20 minutes to receive cocktails, waitress jumped right into entrees without asking if we wanted appetizers, little attention, poor follow-up, ordered a beer and it took 25 minutes to be served as the waitress forgot. Entrees took over an hour to arrive and items we ordered we never served but we listed on the bill.
- Food Quality was lacking: one in our party ordered the signature filet cooked medium. He originally asked for medium-well and with persuasion by our waitress assuring him that the chef would achieve a nice pink through the center at a medium temp, he changed his mind and went with her suggestion. As he was eating he cut into the filet and found that it was VERY rare. Most of the steak was red with a very dark red section where the temperature was very undercooked from what he requested. The salmon would have been a nice dish, however is was extremely over salted … and I LOVE salt! The fired cauliflower and broccoli was one of our appetizers, it had no seasoning to it. It was very bland and ended up just being crunchy vegetables. Very disappointed in this dish, especially after I received an over seasoned salmon dish.
- Extremely loud atmosphere: There was a private party next door that made it almost impossible to hear others at our table. It made for an extremely unpleasant dining experience.
Outstanding meal! Especially enjoyed the shrimp and crab beignets. Leslie was a great server and the hostess was nice enough to go get a pillow from the bar for me when she heard my husband mention I am still recovering from back surgery. Will be back and will bring friends!
My wife and I have now been to the Spring House twice in the last two weeks. We met the Chef Tim Grandinetti both times. He was incredibly gracious and a real pleasure to speak with. We are new to the area and had been use to eating out in downtown Charlotte at some very nice restaurants. To our suprise, our experience both times was better than our best in Charlotte. Staff was fantastic, service was superb and the food was absolutely amazing. We plan to make this a regular stop for our date night dining.
Great birthday celebration! Reservations were super early in the evening (4:30p) so I wasn't sure what to expect as far as prompt service and wait time for our meal. Experienced absolutely no difference in dining this time as I've experienced in previous visits at a more "normal" (7p) dinner hour - food was wonderful, service was prompt and professional, received a warm welcome and enjoyed a delightful birthday dinner next to the fireplace! Can't wait to return!
As always, Spring House delivers an exceptional all-around dinner. From a friendly greeting, to a timely seating, to a professional thorough menu introduction, everything was on a course to perfect...
Then the group at the table next to us included two men dressed like thugs. Wearing T-shirts and backwards caps, they completely destroyed the atmosphere of what should be a fine dining experience.
Once I got over that, our meal was delicious as usual.
The only thing that could be improved is some control of the dress code, if that is possible.
My soup was so thick, it resembled mashed sweet potatoes in lieu of soup. Taste was satisfactory but thickness was strange and not hot enough. Our portions were comically huge - my cabbage with fig side had to be at least 3 cups. Don't get me wrong - nice not to be stingy but the over-sized side was overwhelming - especially such a strong-tasting side. The macaroni and cheese side was not hot and was OK-tasting. We expected more from the reputation of the restaurant.
I was in Winston-Salem for a conference and found the Spring House online. It had great reviews and now I can see why. The ambiance and overall experience was wonderful. The decor reminded me of being in a fine home in the islands.
The mahi-mahi was terrific as were the seafood beignet appetizers. I would highly recommend.
We had reservations through open table of course so we were greeted by our name when we entered the restaurant. We ordered the bread sample and the pimento cheese. So good! Then came the best thing of the whole meal... fried green tomatoes with pulled pork barbecue. There were three and each of us had one. Amazing. I’m still dreaming of them. We also had the butternut squash and onion soup- very good. The scallops and pork belly was tasty and the scallops and ravioli shrimp and grits was also great. The steak salad was cooked medium rare and was enough for sharing. Great meal. Highly recommend.
As I have already mentioned on Facebook, everything (I use that word carefully) was perfect (that one, too), from the food to the service to the ambiance. Wife wanted a glass of Moscato, but they were out...but the staff went out of their way to accommodate--which they did. Wow. Perfect server, as well. Recommend this place very highly!
Excellent food. We were placed in a small room with 2 small tables and one large occupied table. That did affect our enjoyment because the group at the large table was ridiculously loud. The food was good, and service very attentive. I'd go back but would ask to sit in a different area.
