Have never been disappointed when we go here to eat. The food is a gastronomic experience that you will not find anywhere else in the central New York region. We love to go there for the lovingly crafted food that arrives at the table for us to eat. Always something new and interesting for us to try, that will not disappoint the pallet or the stomach.

Theresa was our waitress. We are her there often or at the steak house. She is a wonderful person and always remembers us. Wildflowers is our favorite restaurant. The food is excellent. The service is excellent. It’s a nice quiet romantic place.

I thought the service was very nice but we waited about an hour and fifteen minutes before our dinner was served, which was very bland and needed more seasoning. My rice was a little undercooked and was hard in some bites. My husband thought his steak was very dry and not very flavorful either. For the price of everything we expected better results.

Food was great but pricy. We stayed at the lodge and were excited to eat here because we had a great experience a couple of years ago. Unfortunately this time was much different and we had terrible service. Our server did not greet us for at least 10-15 minutes after we sat down. Once she took our drink order, she did not come back to our table for 30+ minutes and she wasn’t the one to bring our drinks. 40 minutes sitting there before we could even order appetizers. It was not busy there at all. She did not apologize for our wait and could have been a lot friendlier. We ended up being there over 2.5 hours with how slow everything was.. even ordered our dessert to go because it got so late. At a place like this you would expect much better service. Overall, I would probably go back because of the food but would definitely hope for a better server.

Best restaurant we’ve EVER been to- hands down. My husband and I travel a lot love to eat out. Not many places can stand side by side to WILDFLOWER. So many tastes, so many colors. We’re still talking about the food 2 days later. Our in-laws were surprised at how good the food was as well. We will definitely be back. The service was outstanding and the staff was very pleasant! It was a great experience overall. Hats off to the chef!!

Wildflowers is always the nicest restaurant in our opinion-- lovely view, staff, a new menu, wonderful wine list and champagnes.
Teresa and Emily are just perfect and the new Sole Veronique and traditional roasted chicken were beautiful and delicious.
We missed a lot during The Covid experience and so glad to be back at Wildflowers.

We had breakfast there after going to Skana for massages. The restaurant was extremely careful in regards to covid cleanliness and our waitress was wonderful. We ordered the mimosa flight, eggs Benedict, steak and eggs, and the bananas foster french toast. Before we saw any of it, the chef sent a sample of orange creme smoothies and a cinnamon muffin—incredible. I have always HATED orange creme, but I think I’ve just never tasted it done right until this smoothie. Then the mimosa flight came out (I loved the Morning bloom, which is the best pear nectar with a pop of pomegranate, my boyfriend loved the original mimosa). The eggs Benedict was perfect and incredibly filling. My boyfriend and I both finished our plates. We agreed to just try the bananas foster French toast while it was warm and get it boxed. We ended up finishing the majority of it because it was incredible in every way. We left feeling well-nourished, as the chef only used quality ingredients, stuffed, and most importantly, satisfied. We have been seeking out a restaurant in the greater Utica-Rome area that feels worth the money, and Wildflowers is definitely that restaurant. We will be back! Highly recommend this to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or just looking for a scrumptious, nourishing meal.

My husband and I rarely frequent 'ritzy' restaurants. We came here because the steakhouse had no reservations. I will say, I'm grateful we couldn't go to the steakhouse! This was an amazing dining experience. Every single person we came into contact with was polite and pleasant. The atmosphere within the restaurant was calm and quiet. The food was absolutely delectable! The presentation of the food was beautiful, I almost didn't want to eat it because it looked so pretty! I absolutely recommend this restaurant for a phenomenal dining experience! You will NOT regret it!

We were so impressed by our waiter, Kyle, on Friday. Although our reservation was scheduled for later in the evening, Kyle was professional at all times and clearly understood and perfectly executed proper table ettiquette. The most impressive attribute was his ability to be personable & relatable with all of the members of our party. He truly made the experience remarkable - so much that we discussed him several times throughout and after our visit. The food was out of this world, as always. Kudos to everyone who makes Wildflowers the exceptional restaurant that it is.
