A lovely dining experience in a beautiful historic setting. From the moment you enter this well appointed Inn, you are instantly reminded of old world charm and service. The staff are so well trained, the wine list is excellent, and the food is delicious.It is apparent from the very first course, that the chefs pay close attention to detail not... More

We had breakfast twice, a snack & supper. Service was great. Food was well presented, and tasty. The view of the vineyard was very nice. My husband did not enjoy the Jazz music they were playinh

Small and very pretty restaurant. Comfortable seating and nice and quiet - very soothing atmosphere. They have a lovely patio overlooking vineyards, but it was just a bit too breezy for us, although they did have heaters. Their Caesar salad was delicious with some nice touches like a parmesan crisp. Enough to split if you just want a small starter.... More

Had dinner through a winery tour so the menu was preset with 3 main course options; chicken, beef, or seafood. Food was well prepared and tasty, with plenty of time to enjoy socializing between courses. Server was great.

Service very slow. Only one server for whole area outside. Red wine spilled on my white pants. Patio overlooked vineyards and was very scenic and peaceful.

Upper scale dining experience. Not a large selection on the menu, a little pricey but very good food.

They have dropped most wines other than their vineyard, which is not very good. Very nice food, pretty room, but impossible to order wine. I suppose they have a higher margin on their own vintage. They have also removed the piano and added many tables making it crowded. And you get very LOUD music coming from party tents in the... More

On Friday, 12 Sep 201, my wife and I went to Riverbend for dinner; we had dined there a couple of years ago and had a very pleasant evening. The location and grounds are indeed pleasant, but the rest of this visit was disappointing. The reception was casual to say the least - hardly welcoming. The table we were seated... More

It was a beautiful night and we decided to find a restaurant where we could sit outside and view the vineyards - we found it with this restaurant. The whole dining experience was memorable. First, the service is impeccable and the waiter extremely friendly and helpful - always with a smile and you could tell she loved her job. The... More
