Overall experience was excellent. Food was terrific, especially the "deconstructed Wellington" along with the array of desserts. Wine list is long enough to be interesting but not the least bit overwhelming. Great service from Sarge. Happy to return.

Treated myself to a steak dinner on my birthday. I didn’t realize Wellington’s is now open on Sundays which is a bonus! My server, Sarge, is very attentive and took great care of me. Thank you! The steak (Deconstructed Wellington) was top notch the wine I had was on point. Thank you for a great dinner and experience and will return again!

FOOD WAS ABOVE AVERAGE. SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE. HAD TO WAIT 10 MINUTES BEFORE A WAITRESS EVEN SHOWED UP. SEEMED LIKE RESTAURANT WAS SHORT STAFFED OR SOMETHING. SERVICE CERTAINLY NOT IN LINE WITH WHAT THEY CHARGE AND GREATLY NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED.

My wife and I were in town for a jazz concert at the Carnegie Hotel. So for convenience, we decided to dine at the Wellington. We had no special expectations but really came away impressed. We will tell friends and return again soon.

Seated an hour before closing so timing wasn't the issue. Promised bread several times for over 30 minutes and finally told from a different server that they had none. Then told, well we do but it is frozen and they are trying to thaw it out. Ordered Filet medium and showed up very rare.
Once they got it right steak was good. Service was not... Had to ask for everything all the way down to a pen to sign the check...

My husband and I had our first date there, got engaged there and had our wedding reception there. We recently celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary there and got to sit at our exact table we sat at when we got engaged and cut the cake at our wedding. Wellington’s is very special to us and it never disappoints!

Wellington's is the best fine dining in Johnson City. The college town doesn't have much to offer in the upper-end category, but this place is great. Do yourself a favor and save some room for their Bananas Foster!

We had a very relaxed, enjoyable dinner at The Wellington. Our service was great, as was the meal, also. My husband had the filet, I tried the “Deconstructed Wellington”, neither disappointed. We finished off the evening with the raspberry cheesecake.
We will definitely return soon!

Finally tried the restaurant. Service was very good and my beef Wellington was superb. The filet was tender and vert tasty. Fried green tomatoes crisp and the orange marmalade went well with this. Great ambiance. Recommend highly. Good bar scene for the 35 plus crowd.

Appetizers were the best thing, but very pricey. 3 deviled eggs --3 halves - were $6. The best thing on the menu was the shrimp and grits. It was a great price for the size and taste. It took over 30-45 min after we were done with apps for food to be brought out- salad, cold sandwich and plain burger. Only 2 other tables that came in after us confused about why service was so slow. Fries were room temp. Desserts also very pricey. $8 for very small slice of cheesecake or torte.

I was excited to try this restaurant as I had enjoyed their spa the last time I traveled to this area. Company joined us and service was horrible from sitting down. The staff was all young and very inexperienced and unprofessional. There was no manager on duty! The waitresses were rude and felt as if we were bothering them. My fathers steak, after messing it up the first time causing the other diners to eat gold entrees, was awful! They had none of the basic skills down.. touching the lip of used glasses to refill water, playing with their hair then setting tables, handing hot coffee over diners rather than walk around. Portions were small, food was just ok and the service was the worst I’ve experienced ever!

I made a reservation several weeks in advance for a table for 13 people for breakfast and also called the day before to confirm, but the table was not ready. The waitress said the hostess did not show up for work that day and they did not know about the reservation. They put some tables together but we were forced to sit so close it was uncomfortable. The food was only lukewarm when it was served. I would expect better from a restaurant like Wellingtons.

I have drove by Wellington's for several years and have wanted to try it. My husband mentioned that his work group was wanting to get together for an evening out and asked if I had any suggestions, Welling's came to mind. So we made a reservation for 13.
Everyone was seated as arrived. We were seated in a back corner, which was fine for the group. The waitress took our drink orders but made no suggestion ordering appetizers. Once everyone arrived, the order was taken right away. The table ordered a variety of items on the menu. I had the 8oz Filet, it was very tasty, but honestly no better than what I would order from other local steak restaurants. One person ordered a burger, which looked very good, another ordered a Reuben. Nobody had any complaints about the food- I guess it just wasn't the Wow we expected from "Wellington's." I would however try the restaurant again, but with smaller expectations. It compares to any other good restaurant in the area, just a bit more pricey, but affordable.

We dined at Wellington's twice during our stay at the hotel. The only slightly negative was both times we had to wait what I felt was a significant amount of time to be greeted by the hostess (same young female both times) who did not appear to be busy but rather talking with the servers toward the kitchen area. The food was outstanding and came hot and delivered quickly.
