Jeffrey Thompson clearly loves being a chef. You can see it by the sparkle in his eyes and smile on his face. His dishes are creative, beautifully crafted and presented, and fun. Particularly notable is his ability to coax optimal flavor from vegetables without resorting to deep frying. The a la carte dinner is a four course affair. One chooses... More

Private wine cellar tasting menu with wine paring highly recommended. We had 7 courses including cheeses before dessert. The hotel baked a special cake I had requested for my husbands birthday.

We stopped at the Wheatleigh to wander through with future vacations in mind. We were greeted so warmly that we decided to stay for lunch. It was a delightful experience! We enjoyed a peaceful meal with delicious food and a fantastic view. It was an elegant oasis in the middle of a busy sight-seeing day. The luncheon menu was surprisingly... More

The setting is stunning: a glassed in colonnaded portico thrust into a beautifully manicured garden over looking a small green valley. The reception is warm and welcoming. The service by trained European pros is efficient, relaxed, and unpretentious. The menu is quite varied, and the execution delicious. Though not cheap, there is a lot of value in the overall experience.... More

We have dined at Wheatleigh many times over the years, both in the main dining room (simply exquisite) and in the bar (the Library). We have always felt that it was worth every penny (and it costs alot of pennies) because the food was sublime, the service first-rate and the setting (in both dining rooms) and in the hotel's public...

The Library restaurant is lovely but a bit crowded. I felt I was in the next tables conversation. The food delicious and the service superb. I do suggest you order an appetizer also because the portions are a bit small.

There are a couple of details that for us really make this place one of our favorites in the world... - There is no reception because you are greeted like a friend - A glass of champagne as the sun goes down on the manicured gardens - The combination of excellent returning staff with euro trainees from the best schools...

Made a reservation for the formal dining room, but waited for over half an hour for a table only to be seated all by ourselves in the Library area. We felt the staff was snooty and pretentious, the server/maitre de commented on my order - and @ $125 for the four course meal she should have kept her food pretentious... More

The food, service, ambiance, staff, wine list and setting are all truly divine. Yes it is expensive, but it is not significantly more than many other much more inferior restaurants in the area. I love having lunch in the library. We usually save dinner for special occasions.
