You know when you go to a place to eat and from the moment you sit down until the moment check is brought to the table you feel like time is suspended - that's how I felt at the Piedmont Restaurant. Time stood still and excellent food, wonderful wine and delicious flavors permeated our table. Our table ordered a mix... More

When you order sweetbreads as appetizer and they are delicious, you know you'll have an excellent dinner. Was in Raleigh/Durham for work and just wanted a nice restaurant to have a decent meal that, for a change, were clean and organic and different than fast food. So I looked for "organic restaurant" on google maps and find Piedmont in central... More

We go to Piedmont once per year. The service this time was among the best I have ever seen at any restaurant. The servers served and cleared from the correct sides and were very attentive. But most importantly was how the restaurant handled a complaint we had. One of us ordered the wahoo, which he enjoyed. Two of us ordered... More

At our first visit to Piedmont, we attended the cheese makers dinner. What a treat! Each course had fresh, clean tastes that showcased each ingredient. No detail was overlooked in terms of presentation. Plates were beautiful, but did leave me wanting more....

It was a Sunday early evening in Durham, NC and we kept finding that eateries were not open. I went to TripAdvisor and found the Piedmont. We made a reservation and drove over there. It is not common for us to order an appetizer, but the items on the menu beckoned! We started with the Heirloom Tomato salad. For the... More

We headed to Piedmont for our first visit on a Tuesday night for a 5:45 reservation . We were not the first ones there. Started out with the smoke trout dip and house-made lavash crackers. Nice portion size to share and great flavor. I had the pan-seared Maple Leaf Farm’s duck breast, with Root Down Farm’s brown butter carrots, shaved... More

We had a fabulous dinner at Piedmont. This is quality "farm to table food" with the freshest ingredients used in creative combinations that work. The chilled corn soup with barbecued shrimp was a beautiful blend of sweet and savory, a real pleasure. The heirloom tomato salad had wonderful flavor and the ricotta was light and delicately flavored. My tile fish... More

We registered for the Bull Moon Bike Ride a few weeks ago and on the spur of the moment thought a nice dinner in Durham would be an awesome way to begin the evening. I called Piedmont Saturday morning and made reservations for two at 5:30 that evening. No problem. we picked up our Bull Moon Bike Ride packets from... More

We had two entrees (steak and duck), two drinks (beer), and two desserts (peach and blueberry pie and date cake). The meal was very tasty. When the entrees first arrived, we thought they looked a little small, but they were quite rich and very flavorful. The amount of food turned out to be perfect. The steak was better than I... More

Beet salad, smoked trout dip, mahi mahi were all very good. The coulette was rather tough for me, but the flavor was excellent with the tastiest vegetables. Desserts were also very good. The physical setting is certainly not impressive, but the staff was very friendly and pleasant.
