The Carriage House Dining Room is by far the nicest restaurant in the area. The food is unbelievably delicious! I've never had such an amazing meal. I had the Steak Diane and it was the most tender medallion of beef...it melts in your mouth. Many people will complain about the pricing being too high so if you cannot afford to... More

My wife and I enjoyed excellent service and a quiet atmosphere. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. The price is on the high end for the area, but so was the quality of the overall experience.

A great place to celebrate our special night. We'll definitely be back. Every detail from start to finish was perfect. The food was delicious and beautifully presented (locally sourced, eye) but the people were best of all.

What a perfect hidden gem!! A beautiful older building with such a romantic, cozy atmosphere! We were warmly greeted right away! While waiting just moments for our table, we stepped inside the small bar to start our evening with a glass of wine. All the servers were friendly and genuine - answering all our questions without being annoyed. Everything from... More

This is a top notch restaurant. The staff was so friendly from the second we arrived until we left. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was one of elegance and warmth. If you are looking to get your money's worth from a truly upscale restaurant then this is the place to go.
