Took our friends here for their 50th wedding anniversary dinner. Menu was amazing. Best sweetbreads I've ever had. Staff was attentive and offered great suggestions. It was a beautiful evening all around. Thank you Homestead Inn for a very special experience.

The place has all the potential to be a true landmark. But I found the food to be a little old-fashioned in its craft.

Really lovely! Loved the attention from the wait staff. Meal was elegant, very tasty. Wine very nice (bordeaux). Surprise birthday treat at meal's end-yum! Good people watching. Walked around neighborhood-unique! So glad we went a little out of our way to stay at the Inn.

Wonderful meal as always. I had the black truffles Royale with lobster bisque and lobster ragout. It was delightful, perhaps one of the the best things I have ever eaten. My husband enjoyed the sweetbreads. We both had specials that were amazing. The service was impeccable. We will be back of course!

A little outdated in ambiance.
Cold bread and butter felt the same.
No drink menu, just a lengthy wine list. You can request just about anything and they will make it.
Portions are great.
Service is lovely.

Had a late Saturday night reservations, we were told as soon as we sat down there was only 1 Dover Sole left if were interested and then were told they were out of the Lamb special, but the rack of lamb on the menu is excellent. After reviewing the menu and then ordering a nice bottle of Bordeaux wine with sommelier, we ordered our dinner. I ordered the rack of lamb, and they just ran out I was told. So I was left ordered the duck.

The trio of foie gras was very mediocre, not very flavorful and I am a big fan and order this dish all over. The cannelloni stuffed with crabmeat topped with caviar was very good. My duck was so over cooked it was so dry. The sauce had good taste.

We are foodie and love fine dining and will pay for great meals, unfortunately I do not think I will return, sorry.

Our celebratory new year's dinner at Thomas Henkelmann's restaurant was superb. The service was excellent, the table situated with a view to the garden, including a Christmas tree glowing with light reflected by the surrounding snow. The food was timed to arrive perfectly, allowing us enough leisure to enjoy every perfect course -- from the first taste of the amuse bouche to the last sip of espresso.
All of the dishes we ordered were of outstanding quality, made with the finest ingredients, in addition to being most attractively presented. The shrimp appetizer, dover sole, and sorbet dessert are outstanding.
We recommend this restaurant highly.

The food was delicious and the holiday decorations were quite attractive. The service was superlative. My only issue was the lack of handicapped parking and handicapped access. The restaurant needs to come up with a better way of gaining access than taking handicapped people through the kitchen.
