While presentation was certainly noteworthy, the taste was not to be overshadowed. Service was top notch, as was the food. The only real problem seemed to be being able to get a glass of wine that was not tainted.

Everything but the location (too far away from most things we were interested in) and that no one greeted us upon arrival.

After extensive research of dining in the wine country area, we opted for a romaric dinner at Applewood Inn Restaurant. We utilized Trip Advisor and decided our chances were higher than average for a great experience. The scenic drive out was the highlight of the evening. While the Inn did have a romantic appeal to it, the restaurant did not... More

I was a little bit apprehended because of reading somewhat negative reviews from prior groupon customers. We did decide to keep an open mind. I glad we did. The service was great. Our server was very attentive yet, not overbearing, food came out not too soon and there was no " how is everything?" questions with really fake smile. Bottom... More

Context: we had dinner on a Saturday night and breakfast two days. Atmosphere: restaurant is located on the inn property which includes lovely gardens. Seating is inside looking over the inn courtyard in two rooms. Spacious area, quiet and unassuming. Room could use some upgrades in decor. Seemed dated and stodgy Service: this was a busy night and they were... More

It's one of places for 'foodies' with very good food, well prepared, and providing excellent service. Of course, being in the wine country the wine selection is excellent. Is it worth the price? Not so sure.

Just had the most amazing dinner here! But the Canoli and the Bignets were the icing on the cake! While we were rolling out from eating a beautifully delicious 3 course meal, it was worth every bite and every penny! Loved it!
