Great restaurant for dinner and breakfast the next morning. It’s expensive but not overdone.
We had cocktails before dinner in a quiet cozy side room with a beautiful fire. Dinner in the enclosed porch was delightful — trio of four gras, asparagus soup, duck and Dover sole. Decor is tastefully done and service is very attentive and professional. We stayed as guests at the Inn, as well, and the entire experience left us vowing to return again in the spring.
Sublime I every way.
Went for a special, anniversary dinner. Had a wonderful time. Food and service were outstanding, which you would expect at a restaurant in this price range. I did not see much of the Inn, as our table was in the first room, but the decor was very nice. The only other comment I have is the restaurant is “jacket recommended”, but the guy next to me was wearing jeans and a hoodie so the dress code is possibly optional.
This restaurant has been our favorite place in Greenwich for years.
My husband & I used to live in France for many years, and because of this, I wanted to host my 60th birthday dinner at Homestead Inn. I was not disappointed! Everything was superb!!
We go to a lot of nice restaurants and I just was not very impressed. It was very old and dated.
Excellent as always. Thomas Henkelmann never disappoints. Another incredible birthday dinner for my wife. If you have not tried this restaurant, you should.
The best food in the nicest setting with magnificent service. Could not be better.
We celebrated our Valentines Day this year at Thomas Henkelmann and everything was excellent. The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and attentive. Thank you for giving us an evening to remember!
Never disappointed when we choose to eat here. Outstanding service and delicious food. Crab cakes were outstanding, rack of lamb and duck were perfect and the chocolate soufflé was probably the best I’ve ever had.
We have dined at Thomas Henkelmann many times over the years and it has been our “go to” for special occasions. I don’t know the story on this visit. I hope it was a bad night and not an outstanding restaurant going downhill. On this night, they were serving a four course prix fixe. I had the lobster bisque which was OK and the duck which was Unusually dry. My wife had the salmon and it tasted like a cheaper filet of farm raised salmon and the entire presentation was bland. Service was spotty. We had wrong drinks brought to our table, entrees mixed up and coffee came after we had finished our desserts. I would have liked another glass of wine, but my glass was empty for 15 minutes before our server noticed. Thomas Henkelmann has earned the benefit of the doubt from us over the years so we will go back. But if we have the same experience again, it will drop out of our rotation.
Loved our waiter! A nice addition to the menu would be glutton free bread in addition to the other breads offered at the beginning.
Never disappoints. Attention to detail much appreciated. Food was divine and service most attentive. Not cheap but good special
The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. One of my favorite places to go.
Wonderful dining experience. Beautiful, tranquil and elegant ambiance. Excellent and beautifully-plated food, including starters, entrees and desserts. Superb service from the moment we arrived, including our dining staff and wine service. Went to celebrate a birthday and could not have chosen a better place.
Best restaurant in southern Connecticut for a special occasion. Food and service are top notch
Had wonderful evening entertaining dear friend from Chicago. Food, ambience, service. All first class - world class. Staff exceptional - knowledgeable, warm, sense of humor. Pay attention without being the least intrusive. Great eclectic bar area - before or after dinner drink. Continues as the most sophisticated, interesting restaurant in Greenwich area.
We came to celbrate my wife’s birthday... we truly had an amazing time. We came with a 5 years old, and usually, these places are not too excited about it, but from the Maître D to the kitchen server, they were all really kind to us, they gave us a great table, really an outstanding staff. The food was great too, classic, but very well executed! The timing was percect, the decor exquisite, an memorable experience!
The only bad point is the wine list. They do have a great selection, but the pricing is crazy high. The mark up is higher than any restaurant in the city, a bit of a shame, it is hard to find hidden gems...
Well done anyway, again we had an amazing experience, and we will be back on our next visit...
Such a special place. Memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you
Accommodated my dietary needs
The entire evening was a lovely experience
The Homestead Inn & Restaurant is one of the best in the tri-state area. The food is spectacular - - the wine list is great - - and the service very professional and friendly - - I also like the valet parking. What more can I say - - go as often as you can and enjoy a great dining experience.
One of my favorite restaurants! So glad we are moving closer to it this month ! Keep up the great work ! Don’t change a thing !
Great meal, great ambience!
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. Their attention to detail and quality is unsurpassed in Fairfield County!
Once we were given a nice table, and not one in Siberia, everything was lovely. We enjoyed our dinner and especially the service we got from our head waiter, George. He went above and beyond to make our evening special.
Without a doubt the best dining experience in Greenwich, CT especially special during the Holiday Season. Outstanding!
It is our favorite restaurant in Greenwich. Never disappoints.
Food, service and ambiance...esp at Christmas are all great but when you spend $400 per couple for dinner youd think you'd get more than a choice of TWO WHITE WINES OR TWO RED WINES by the glass??? Huh? Is this 1952? They really need to up their game on that.
A gem. The food is sensensational and the service is first rate.
The atmosphere and ambiance were wonderful. The staff was attentive and well-versed in the food and wine. The presentation of the dishes was excellent and delicious. We had salad, smoked salmon appetizer and 2 specials for main courses, brisket and scallops.
I can't wait to come back in the spring and walk around the grounds
I wanted a special holiday luncheon for my guests and Patricia acted as my point person. She couldn’t have done a better job in making it a special setting and personalized. Thank you! The Bouche de Noel and ambiance at the holidays is not to be missed.
We celebrated our Annual Holiday dinner at this lovely Inn. The festive decor, delicious cuisine and exceptional service is always a special treat.
This is the second lunch I’ve had there this December. Both times but especially this second time- my friend and I thought we were treated with considerable criticism because of our choice to order only first courses as our entire lunch. The chef is wonderful but if the luncheon menu isn’t expanded to include more options for lighter eaters, I will continue to only eat there on rare special occasions.
I don’t mind the price. I just want more salads!
This is an iconic, classic venue. It is tastefully upscale with impeccable service and food to match. A group near us was unacceptably loud (a/k/a drunk). It would have been preferable had they been quickly invited by management to consider other guests. We consider this occurrence an aberration and will continue to enjoy this lovely, elegant setting.
Annual Holiday get together with friends.
This restaurant is the definition of fine dining.
Had a wonderful lunch. Food atmosphere was so beautiful, can’t wait to return.
We have been coming to The Homestead for years for our special holiday celebration. It is a splurge, but with the lovely atmosphere, great service and delectable food, we think it’s worth every penny!
What a truly wonderful place! It is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion (in our case our anniversary). The food, service, and attention to detail are second to none! I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
