All in all, a very pleasurable experience. The bar area with its fireplace, dark woodwork and an extensive list of whiskeys and knowledgeable bartenders was outstanding. The ambiance extends to the dining area. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. The food was very good but not exceptional. Only critical observation (and it is merely my opinion) is the menu seemed a bit limited...specifically, I would like a few more entrees from which to choose. I will absolutely visit again when in the area and recommend to others.
Was surprised that the chef wouldn't blacken the catfish. Only served it deep fried. The meal was prepared well, just disappointed the chef was unable to make the adjustment.
Wonderful place to celebrate Valentines Day
Our waitress was perfect
We will come back soon
Excellent food. good service. It's the only upscale restaurant in town, and its a good one.
Valentines Day Dinner
Best steak I've had in a LONG time!
Service was slow, it was 10 mins before our waiter even gave us water
Pecan Brussels sprouts were burnt, dry and tasteless
Steak was ok imo, but I would have thought for the price it should have been excellent
Not worth the money overall
We were a little reluctant to visit here after poor service a few years ago on Valentine's Day, but were pleasantly surprised that the service level was much improved. Both the filet and the catfish were delicious as were the sides. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening dinner.
Had a reservation and we were seated immediately which is great. Ordered the cheese and charcuterie board which was excellent. We also had salads. Ordered the 8 oz Filet and the NY Strip ... both ordered as medium rare. It took 1.5 hours to get our entrees — half an hour after salads. When we got the steaks they were well done ... medium well at best. The server didn’t check on the meal for at least 15 minutes. I told him about it and said I wasn’t sending it back.
Reason I didn’t send it back was because I didn’t want to wait another hour to get the meal I ordered. Service was mediocre.
We are local transplants to the area and wanted to try the restaurant. I won’t be back. There are other places for upscale food and farm to table food that are much better at service, food, and overall dining experience. To me every customer experience should be treated as a first impression. I wasn’t impressed.
We were there to celebrate our 50 anniversary. It was very noisy. I was disappointed that the filet had several foods the same color and was not as attractive as in the past. I like to have colorful vegetables with my meal. Potatoes and cauliflower were same color and meat was brown with brown glaze.
There was no complimentary dessert for our celebration. That was a disappointment.
Relaxing, classy, enjoyable great drinks
Remembered this place from 10 years ago. Wanted to try it again to see if it was as good as we remembered. It totally was!
Food was lacking
Beautiful dining room with excellent bar service and food. I can’t pass up the Shrimp and Grits. Loved the chocolate torte also.
Excellent our favorite restaurant in Johnson City!
Best steak ive ever had! It was covered in a delicious wine sauce, cooked to perfection, and had nearly no fat to leave behind. Our server was fantastic. She was attentive but not overly interruptive. The restaurant is gorgeous, romantic, and quiet. We were married at Carnegie and returned to Wellington's to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We now plan to return every year.
Great atmosphere! Great service! Great food! All inside a great hotel!!!
Enjoyed both dinner and 2 breakfasts. Many good choices, creatively prepared.
I AM DRAWN MOSTLY TO THE FOOD TASTE. IN ADDITION THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT.
IT ALWAYS IS JUST A GREAT EXPERIENCE.
Great place to celebrate our anniversary! Food and service were exceptional.
We went for brunch on my birthday. Petite filet was cooked perfectly. Coffee was excellent. Little details like real half & half and good butter made a big impact. Servers all very friendly.
Good food and ambience but limited menu. Bar service was excellent but slow.
Service was horrible ... very slow and it was t because they were too busy. Our waitperson spent plenty of time with her friends at the table next to us. It’s a shame because food and ambience was good.
Service was not good at all and it was extremely loud. The menu has been the same for many years and is limited and very fattening. I got one of the few semi-healthy options (quinoa and avocado wrap) and it was pretty rough. Very southern influenced cooking, so if that’s not your thing this isn’t a good restaurant.
My wife and I enjoyed an excellent evening at Wellington’s. The atmosphere is second none in Johnson City. Our food was cooked to our liking and we had a wonderful and memorable time. We will definitely be returning.
We recently "discovered" Wellington's and it has become our favorite "go to" restaurant for special occasions. The food is delicious, the ambience delightful . . . and all is enhanced by our excellent server, Sarge . . who makes a great experience even greater! Kudos to all!
Very enjoyable evening. We were really not in a hurry and the service person was not intrusive. However when we wanted her, she was not always visible. I think that she had too many tables to take care of at one time. Did check in to see how everything was going.
Had a wonderful time. Waiter was awesome. Food fantastic. Will definitely visit again on next trip to area.
We went to Wellington’s on Saturday evening. Service was a little slow sonsidering it wasn’t crowded at all. The food was ok but not really as good as we’d hoped. We probably wouldn’t eat here a second time because we wanted a different experience. We expected exceptional service and food and both were average. The restaurant was decorated nicely and the ambience was nice.
My husband and I dined here to celebrate my birthday. It was our first visit and expected an incredible experience. The restaurant itself was relaxing but the food was disappointing. I ordered the deconstructed Wellington and my husband ordered the filet. Both steaks were average, nothing special. The puff pastry that came with mine was burnt and the green beans waxy tasting. The mashed potatoes were the best part of the meal. Sadly, our desserts were even worse. I ordered a peach bunt cake, terrible. My husband had the cheesecake, disappointing. The meal itself was extremely overpriced for the quality.
I was traveling on business and my wife and I reserved a table for our anniversary. The food was magnificent. I highly recommend the deconstructed Wellington
We went for our 35th wedding anniversary. Very quiet night. Server was attentive and knowledgeable. The green tomato appitizer was excellent. Both entrees were prepared perfectly. We splurged for Bananas Foster which was prepared at the table and was a perfect finish. We will find reasons to come back!
This is my new favorite place to dine in Johnson City. The ambience is perfect and the food was absolutely amazing. I had the Deconstructed Wellington for dinner and it was one of the best meals I think I’ve ever had! The tasteful dark wood decor and quiet atmosphere made for a beautiful dining experience.
The food was excellent. The fried green tomatoes topped with orange marmalade constituted one of the finest appetizers I have had in America. The Deconstructed Beef Wellington was also excellent. Our service, on the other hand, was very slow; that said, it was accompanied by multiple apologies. We weren't in any rush, but there were notable delays between courses. The ambiance (dark woods and music in the background) was quite masculine.
Food and service was outstanding. Prices were very reasonable. Will be back.
Great service, Fantastic food. The atmosphere was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
Wonderful dinner , our waiter was superb. Sarg made the evening so pleasant for our 93year young guests who enjoyed herself . Most definitely would visit the next time we are in the area .
Nice upscale restaurant at modest prices. Took reservation and set a nice corner table for our 32nd Anniversary. Service was nice and pleasant. Breakfast eggs cooked perfectly without scorching. Thick bacon, and wife enjoyed the harvest grain waffle. Highly recommend.
Our group was in JC for golf tournament. We were all staying at Carnegie. Food is always good here and a good value. A touch on the slow side of service but the food was good and a fair value.
2nd time there - as good as the first... will always be the "Johnson City" dinner of choice.
