We had the chef's tasting menu, which included 5 courses. For $75, the portion sizes were small and the meal was decent, but nothing really stood out. The soup and scallop had a little more flavor. The trio of desserts were good, but as to be expected for dessert. The salad was pretty plain and the lamb was pretty plain.

We did not stay in the Applewood Inn, but it looks like a nice country inn with spa services. The restaurant had one michelin star for 2 years a few years back. The service is very good and probably the best in the area. The food is also very good. As usual in the area try the local wine especially... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice. The food ranged from good to excellent. Nice wine list and we both really liked our selections. The service we received from a young man wearing a suit (who said he'd worked there for 13 yrs) was exemplary and the best part of the meal. He saw our Travelzoo voucher on the... More

A bit "remote" unless one is staying at inn, but worth the trip. Excellent ingredients (many from own organic gardens), good preparation, nice wine list and attentive owner. Inn guests can expect very satisfying breakfast as well.

My husband and I had dinner there with two other couples. The service provided by our waiter, Ross, was superb, and the food made for one of the best meals we've ever had anywhere. The scallop and lobster appetizer was moist and delicious, the rack of lamb was ever so tender and cooked perfectly. The crunchy profiteroles filled with peanut... More

We were staying at the Applewood and had an excellent dinner there. We used a Groupon, which really cut the cost nicely. but prices are not unreasonable for the area and the quality of the food. Looks like they lost their Michelin star last year, but the food is in that range. I had an excellent scallop appetizer, followed by... More

We stayed at the Inn - great spot - and were really looking forward to the dinner, especially after a great breakfast and the hype of the Michelin stars. Well, very disappointed. The food was good, but nothing exceptional and was actually rather boring. Plus, running out of one of the appetizers by 8 p.m. was not great. I ordered... More

After reading other reviews, I chose this place for my anniversary dinner. The restaurant was fairly quiet for a Saturday night, which is a plus for a romantic dinner. We opted for the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing, which is worth every penny. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and never made us feel rushed during our nearly 3 hour... More

Charming place with a cottage feeling, waiters are super attentive. Prompt service, great food beautifully presented. My salmon was excellent. Only had a minor issue on the check at the end but it was fixed without a problem.
