Food was outstanding and the view incredible. Highly recommend
Had a fabulous meal in main dining room with gorgeous view of Blue Ridge mountains. The Trout was excellent with the most tasty Yukon mashed potatoes, just amazing. The flatiron steak cooked to perfection. Excellent Caesar salad with shaved fresh Parmesan. Perhaps the best Caesar ever. Desert of Texas pecan pie outstanding! Only complaint we were there on a Thursday night and the live music too load for the inside dining room. Otherwise a perfect experience and a must do when in Boone, Blowing rock area.
We went for an anniversary dinner. Disappointed in that we were sat next be to a table of 8 women who were very loud. They were only exceeded by the larger table of 10 drunken sods who were dressed in tennis and golf clothes. One guy didn't even bother removing his golf hat. So much for business casual. Also there was a wedding that head a live band, who were also very loud. So much for a romantic dinner looking out at the sunset over the mountains. We had a view of the parking lot, which is sadly lacking in parking spots.
We celebrated our 20th Anniversary. Food and service was excellent. Loved the atmosphere and even made new friends with couple at adjoining table. Highly recommended.
Great place! We have been coming here a long time.
Beautiful setting on the patio with mountain backdrop. Agree with other reviewers that sunglasses (and sunscreen/visor if so inclined) were needed until the sun dropped behind a cloud. Service quite good but food mediocre with a lot of reliance of heavy sauces and starchy sides for many of the entrees (salad course was great though). Still a very pleasant experience overall and would go again altho maybe just for cocktails and appetizers.
Excellent food, but the experience was marred by a very long wait. We had a reservation for 8 pm, arrived 15 minutes late, but then had to wait for quite some time, but not just to get seated: also to get a waiter, then for the waiter to take our order, etc. In fact, I tried to get the waiter to take our order when he brought the drinks, but he ran away as if not wanting to take the order at that time. Perhaps the kitchen was overworked; there was a noisy wedding going on at the same time, and maybe they couldn't handle that many orders (but then they should just have not taken our reservation). We finally left the restaurant (with 2 grandchildren) at close to 11 pm! The other issue that was not up to par was the bartender. At a high-end restaurant, I expect a knowledgeable bartender. This one did not know what a perfect Manhattan was, and it came with a cherry instead of the requested twist (the latter may have been the waiter's fault). Had it not been for the extreme slowness of service and the poor bartending, it would have been a superb evening. Moral of the story: don't come here on an evening when a wedding is in process.
The food was good. The servers were very nice. However, it took a long time to get our dinner. Maybe something was going on somewhere else on the premises, that preoccupied the kitchen staff, but by the time our food arrived we were just about ready to leave. Also, the sun coming in the large windows, was blinding at times. They need to have shades at certain times of the day and they, also, need to clean the windows more often.
If you enjoy extremely SLOW dining, from check in to check out, this is for you. We waited in the foyer for 10 min. until we were shown to our table. Sat and sat until a server asked if anyone had talked to us. We ordered two apps and one entree and this average dining experience took 2 hrs. from start to finish. Dinner music was a band with vocalist, not exactly conducive to conversation. The view is great, so go for a drink and skip dinner!
Good food but....it took forever. We received our meals an hour and 15 minutes after we were seated. It was just my husband and I. The waitress was attentive and doing all she could but the wait time was ridiculous. We politely told her after more than an hour of waiting that if the food wasn't soon we'd like our check. The meals came out minutes later and were good but we were frustrated with the long wait time. We had a reservation. We won't go back.
The facility is beautiful with a nice view to the west including Grandfather mountain. There was only a little outside seating as people wandered out side after T-storms had diminished. It was our anniversary so we took the option of quiet seating in what they called the library. They also then forgot about us for 25 minutes - it even took nearly 10 minutes for our server to come after we grabbed one of the table cleaners and told him. The service improved a bit from there but the salads and entrees took a long time to arrive. My wife had the crispy trout - which we both assumed would be Mountain trout - but appeared to be Sea Trout - because the meat was grey - not white. It was ok but not what was expected. I made the mistake of ordering the special - which was a seafood boil. Not much special about it. They did give us free coffee and a dessert because of the long wait. This is a case of a restaurant with great potential - but sort of loose management. Location and setting allows the opportunity to improve greatly if they want to. We did not let is diminish our celebration though!
The food was fantastic and the servers were amazing at keeping up with our table. It was a spectacular evening with my fiance and I am so glad we made a reservation and went. I had the Miso-Glazed Salmon and it was phenomenal while he had the Tilapia and it was just as good. Definitely recommend to everyone.
Beautiful dining room and patio in a lovely setting with mountain views. Varied menu. Attentive service. Live band.
Great views and food. A beautiful spot for an evening out.
Always can count on delicious food and great service!!
Great restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food choices.
We had a fabulous dinner here. The staff was more than accommodating. We were seated near an incredibly noisy group. We were moved outside so we could enjoy our dinner. The food was terrific. Two of us had the crab cake appetizer - fabulous. We all had trout, which was beautifully presented. I would recommend Crestwood to anyone.
too much sun in face. had to wear sunglasses in dining room. view blocked by trees that have grown
Food and drinks were superb. Window table provided a great view of Grandfather Mountain and a spectacular cloud display. Excellent dining experience.
Our food took over an hour to get, my husband's Negroni was horrible, and when the
Food came it was horrible. Never coming back. It was our anniversary!
