Beautiful experience

Came here for lunch - first-time visit to Salamander Resort, which is right in Middleburg, VA (had been thinking it was off the beaten track, and while it feels that way once you're at the resort, you just turn off the main road at the Safeway and you're there). Harrimans doesn't appear to be... read more

I was eager after my spa day for some good small plates for sharing with my fellow spa friends. But the food was ordinary. The first menu when they opened and for the first year or so was just better. I understand changing it up but I think it went backwards. Service was very good. But there were crying kids...not...

We come to Middleburg ofter just to walk around and shop and usually eat in a couple of the local establishments we are familiar with. We had been to the Salamander when it was newly open, but decided to wait until they got all the opening kinks out of the way. We went there for lunch and it was great.... More

The food and the hospitality was the best! From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was at home! Huge selection of wines to choose from! Love the wait staff as well.

I live locally and kept on waiting for the food reviews to get better. I was so looking forward to a restaurant in town with top notch food and service in a beautiful setting. They are not there yet. A friend and I stayed for dinner after enjoying the afternoon at their spa. We went to the Gold Cup on... More

I have been coming to Salamander since it opened and rarely write a review unless I have something nice to say - and now I do:) Finally they have the right people in place. The food is always good (which is why we keep going back) but now they service is as wonderful as the food! Salamander is now running... More

Middleburg has quite a few restaurant gems from coffee houses to 5 star dining but the Gold Cup Wine Bar at the Salamander Resort & Spa wins gold for service. Treated like queens from start to finish, Freddie G., server extraordinaire, created an exceptional birthday celebration for my friend and myself. The food was delicious, I could not tear myself...

With all that money invested you'd think they could sort out the basics; properly prepared food and a well trained wait staff.....but no. While the place looks lovely (if you fancy corperate hunt decor) the service and quality of the food is just plain sub par. It really is unexcuseable to wait an hour for two plates of sushi which...

Was able to finally get here. Wine Cup has a great atmosphere with fireplace and pool tables. Excellent views. Filet Mignon was on point! My wife enjoyed a wine tasting. Desserts were not our favorite. We'll certainly go back. Make sure you ask for Evan!
