Set a new level of fine dining for us. Gazpacho, heirloom tomato salad, sea bass and lamb chops. Presentation on each gave feast for your eyes and confirmed by the tastes. Perfectly prepared, great, unusual flavors. Wouldn't normally order seafood in the mountains (we live at the ocean) this was a true exception of well prepared. Service: knowledgeable, attentive without... More

We celebrated our anniversary at Rowland's this week. From the moment we entered, we were made to feel special. The dining room was quiet and filled with windows looking out onto the jaw dropping view. Our table was topped with a heart composed of red rose petals. Our waiter was helpful and attentive, he knew when we needed him, and... More

An amazing experience. The service is impeccable the food outstanding. Chef Nate uses the freshest ingredients bought daily at the market. Or flown from afar. The cuisine is innovative with sophisticated touches and unique flavor combinations. Desserts are delectable. Beautifully presented. The setting is picturesque.

We enjoyed three fabulous evening meals at Rowlands during our stay at Westglow. Not only were the meals delicious, but they were beautiful to look at! I have food allergies and I so appreciate the care with which my food was prepared.

I have nothing but raves about this dining experience. From the amuse bouche through the strawberry gazpacho and on to the chicken saltimbocca…..everything was presented with penuche, cooked with great skill, and enjoyed by the eye and the palate. The service was equal to the food. My companion had the rack of lamb cooked perfectly AND the lowly brussels sprout... More
