Our high expectations were more than justified! This beautiful property boasts a vineyard, tasting rooms, a lovely B & B, and a restaurant of culinary delight!! We started with the panco breaded Brie wedge w/raspberry chipotle sauce - yum!! My husband ordered the Blackened NY Strip (MR) w/chive mashed potatoes - amazing! The chef clearly has an expert hand at... More

Loved the Messina Hof experience. Took the cellar tour and then had dinner. Fantastic food. I had the mixed grill and my girlfriend had the filet. Both the filets and lamb were excellent as well as the vegetables and mashed potatoes. The bread was delicious also. I liked the atmosphere but to be honest I was nervous bc I was... More

I wrote a previous review about how our anniversary was ruined. The manager, Scott Sloan, responded to that review, inviting us back to "make things right". We took him up on that offer and I took my husband there as a surprise for Father's Day. We sat in the back room by the windows, overlooking the vineyard. It was beautiful.... More

Overall, we would describe the food as average but the service and hospitality above average. Our food was bland. Our server had a great disposition. We noticed the restaurant could use a deep cleaning when we looked around.

We took some friends here for a birthday lunch. We have eaten here several times. The food is very good. We had a vegetarian entree and the duck. The duck was cooked to perfection. For dessert we wanted the flambe. Two orders, different fruit, split into 4 servings. No problem for them. However, our server said they were out of... More

Visiting from out of state and ordered $90 dinner for 2. Included wine was very good. Salad appetizer was okay, but unimpressed with bland dressing. My wife ordered shrimp scampi. She said shrimp was good, but dish had lumps of fish with skin mixed in, which wasn't included on the menu. I ordered fish of the day, which the waitress... More

We went to the Winery sales room before we went to the restaurant and the staff helped us with our packages when we were seated. They were very kind and accommodating.
