what a gem! chef does the best lamb chops with couscous i've ever tasted, and all accompanying items are superb. don't miss the sauteed scallops/grits for an appetizer - succulent, perfect sear and sweetly divine. and then there's the decadent chocolate cake w/orange cream between layers and chocolate ganache icing - OMG! Ian's and MJ's friendly, spot-on service make the experience a total TEN!!

We love Winston's, but this night was a definite miss. The food was B-flat at best. However, we will come back.

This was our first experience at Winston's. We were greeted warmly and quickly seated. I tried the Not Brown and Creme Brulee desert. Wife tried the Filet of Beef with Truffle Fries. We enjoyed them immensely. We will definitely return.

I took my boyfriend to Winston's for his 50th birthday after learning about the restaurant from a Sullivan staff member. We were both impressed by the amazing food, service, and ambiance of the restaurant. The boyfriend made the comment that if we steered clear of adult drinks we could afford to eat well at Winston's every weekend.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal with the lobster dip appetizer and the pancit (which was eaten as a meal!). Fabulous quail with maple sauce on a savory waffle and sea bass over potatoes. The Sea bass had a delicious crust of seasonings, very unique. Would not hesitate to recommend the food and beautiful ambiance.

Food was good but expensive. They ran out of their bread product on a Saturday night with only four tables full. Our server was very nice but we had to ask for more tea, more water, lemon for the water twice, etc.

Fantastic! Delicious! Will definitely visit again for brunch!

I had the Nutella French Toast with a side of eggs. My children finished off what I couldn't. Portions were nice size. Very friendly staff.

Wow talk about an amazing meal - total perfection, Winston's Restaurant and Executive Chef John Castro presented their 18th Annual Tribute to the Heirloom Tomato Dinner Friday and Saturday night at Winston's Restaurant at Sullivan University. Every course of the 6 course dinner, yes including desert, featured Heirloom Tomatoes from Brooke Eckmann's Ambrosia Farms. Big fun, and is just the start of amazing things that happen weekly at Winston's under the guidance Chef Castro. This hidden gem is always amazing. If it's a special event , a dinner for 2 or a Sunday Bunch it's is always perfection and always deserving of 4 stars.
