We sit in the heart of all that is great, with a view that is timeless. We have taken these products, crafted and grown from across the state and region to create the wine, food, spirits, and cocktails that have made the name Jean Farris so much more than just a brand. For us Jean Farris is the wine, but it is at home on a table filled with friends. It's home is Kentucky.

Excellent food, service could use some tweaking

My family went to dinner last night with my parents (group of five), and we had a great evening at Jean Farris. I would have given this five stars if the service had been up-to-par with the food. We ordered a cheese board that was excellent, and then we all ordered soups, salads and main courses... read more

Hate to ding a restaurant after one visit, but I won't be back here even if travels take us back through the area. We arrived on a rainy sunday afternoon and there was 1 table with people for lunch. We were seated by the same young lady that eventually greeted us at the hostess stand. And I do mean, eventually.... More

I wouldn't go back. The food isn't bad but at these prices it should be much better. Their wines are nothing to write home about either.

This is a wonderful winery, especially for those who like their wines dry and complex...although, there are a few sweeter choices. The server was cordial, very professional and appropriately attentive and helpful. We loved the wines and stayed for dinner and the food was excellent and the service was fantastic. This was our second visit, we purchased bottles of wine... More

I was in Lexington visiting some friends for the weekend. We were looking for an outdoor venue to have a couple of drinks since it was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. We decided to go to Jean Farris Winery and I was not disappointed. My friends had been before, however, this was my first visit to the winery, definitely not my... More

Service was very slow. Forty five minutes after we ordered they brought rolls that tasted like they were prepackaged. Our food was overlooked. My pork roast special was like leather and my husbands fish was very dry. The wine was outstanding though. It's more like a bar with bar food but very expensive. Not worth the trip. I'm giving it...

No doubt about it - gourmet everything. You must try the brussels sprouts. Mouth watering delicious - I wanted every sprout for myself - no sharing. The charcuterie platter for sharing has great variety giving everyone a chance to sample. The Petite Syrah wine is outstanding!!!!

We had a great time. This was our second time going. The first was on a weekend and then reservations are a must. This time was a Thursday and they had lots of space. Both times the servers were very nice, helpful, friendly, and made the experience special. The food is so delicious!!! Cocktails were fun and prohibition era style.

I have been going to Jean Farris for years and I have to say that two things are always consistent: 1) great wine and 2) the food is always delicious. I was there with a large group on Sunday for brunch and the menu offered a lot of great options. I had the shrimp and grits and they were absolutely... More
