    Although we had confirmed reservations no food was available. The winery staff were unhelpful and were only interested in selling wine club memberships. A very poor experience.

    If your only going to go to one winery this is THE ONE!! The service is always outstanding, every wine will blow you away and the ambiance is one of a kind. I cannot say enough good things about Black Hills! Jennifer & Marie always make it so memorable!

    Ford was knowledgeable, charming and funny. We enjoyed his service. The garlic in the food became a hindrance to our tasting acuity/experience. The red wines were both delicious but overpriced .

    The wine tasting was lovely but the charcuterie and cheese was just okay. Also, and of course there was nothing the winery could do about this, but the flies were insane! Couldn't keep them off the food (visited in mid-August)

    This was our first visit to the (new) tasting patio, and we were really happy with our experience. The wine is so good, our tasting host was fun and knowledgeable, and the tapas were some of the best we've ever had. That chef works some serious magic in his little truck. Highly recommend this for a tasting experience, and don't be in a rush, it takes about an hour and a half to enjoy properly.

    Black Hills is well known for their wines. They should be as well known for their food.... especially their charcuterie platter. And their peach and prosciutto flatbread. I’ve tried many but this one really stands out! I highly recommend it!!

    Limited menu. The charcuterie platter was somewhat skimpy. Tiny pieces of cheese. Some good bread needed. We had to ask someone to take our food order after waiting for more than a reasonable time.

    I actually love Black Hills and have been there many times. However, this time we were seated next to the dusty, noisy road which I didn’t even know existed. However, the table next to us was so disruptive we asked to be moved and we’re quickly moved, a big thank you. The charcuterie just has too much relishes, not enough cheeses and crackers. We’ve ordered it before but will not again. Tasting was lovely.

    They were very accommodating, we called to say we would be late and they changed the time for us. Also we were sat in the members section by the pool which was beautiful, as they did not want us to sit in our assigned table in the full sun. The staff at the counters were very friendly and welcoming as well.

    Felt rushed, they wouldn't let us order food as they closed early for an employee function. Wine tasting employee was a bit rude to another customer. Overall we felt the experience was the worst in our three days winery tour.

    This restaurant is outstanding. I only gave it a mediocre overall review because we had a 4:30 reservation (made several days in advance through Open Table) however it closes at 5pm so we felt very rushed. They weren’t even sure the kitchen was still serving food. My advice would be for them not to accept reservations any later than 4pm.

    We went to black hills for wine tasting. When we arrived at our table all 4 of our wines were already poured for us. No on came to our table to speak to the wines for the first 20 minutes. When we were already finished the 2 white wines someone apologetically came to our table to speak to the wines. The pizza we had was excellent. Nice ambience and view on outside patio even though it was quite windy.

    We made two reservations for six people each with a baby and everything went badly. 1. Four of us arrived early and when I told them we were part of thee 5:00 reservation, your senior lady server freaked out. Not welcoming at all. Finally I said just seat the four of us and we ordered a chacuterie platter which was good. 2. When the rest of our group of 12 arrived also before 5:00, we were not allowed to push our two tables together. 3. There was no baby chair and when we brought our own baby chair, your senior lady server wanted us to move it. 4. When one of us tried to take the baby down to the pool, the senior server told us we could not go by the pool. 5. The salad with squash and liver paste was uneatable. 6. Before 5:00 o'clock came, we were told the kitchen closes at 5:00 so we would have to order. This made no sense to anyone because our reservation was for 5:00. Why on earth would you take a reservation for 12 people plus a baby for 5:00 if the kitchen closed at 5:00? 7. One younger lady was very pleasant and did her best to make us feel welcome. 8. Overall, very bad experience.
