We have gone at various times, lunch, sunday brunch and supper. They do change a few items on the menu every couple of weeks or so. We have even been lucky to attend... More

I have been lucky enough to have had many meals at this restaurant over the past few years. The meals are consistently delicious and the menu which changes every 2 weeks always creative. The service is friendly and the atmosphere intimate, It is worth the drive and this restaurant is proof of smaller often is better!

What a treat in the middle of no where. The food was so fresh and local and the presentation could have been from a high end restaurant in New York or San Francisco! They even helped us find accomodations for the night. If you have a chance to go here...it's well worth the effort.

Not often i give 5 stars so for my barometer only exceptional will do. Lovely ,homely atmosphere, genuinely attentive and caring table service and high class food. It must be the closest thing to being related to Gordon Ramsey,invited for xmas to his home and eating with family and friends. It's a bit of a drive but make a day... More

Excellent restaurant with a fun and unique menu. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. The soup of the day was delicious and the Roasted Five Squash dish was superb.

We dined at this wonderful restaurant after hearing the recommendation of a friend who had dined and stayed there (it is also a small B&B). Really, the Wild Caraway could be a contender for a leading fine dining restaurant in any big city. But you can still arrive after a day's hiking in hiking clothes, as we did, and feel... More
