food fantastic, farm to table. Menu changes every two weeks. service excellent, wait staff knows every dish on the menu and which wine to go with it. You will find yourself eating things you never thought you would eat after they explain how it is prepared. You are never rushed, we ate there three times in one weekend!

We booked our 33rd anniversary dinner at Willow Grove and were blown away the moment we got out of the car. The building, with its high columns and upward seeping steps, dates back to 1778 but has been meticulously restored over the previous six years. Inside, we expected a colonial motif but found the restaurant done in elegant modern that... More

everything we ordered from the menu was outstanding. The menu is short but has a good variety. Service is personable and each meal is a dining experience.

What a find in the middle of horse and wine country. This restaurant is as good or better than many DC establishments. The ambience is both modern and historic. Very nice and romantic. Started with a local cheese plate paired with a nice California cab. Short but very good wine list. Shared a smoked salmon and a crab cake appetizers.... More

Every Wednesday the restaurant runs a special of tapas sized portions of the entrees and appetizers for $5; I was in town with a friend on business and managed to try just about everything on the menu. It was my first visit to this restaurant, which I found head and shoulders over the others in Orange. The only downside is... More

Being at the heart of Central Virginia’s wine country, wine is very much a part of the experience in Vintage Restaurant! We welcome guests to bring a favorite bottle, but even more fun is exploring our extensive wine list, which recently won Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for a second year in a row. And for good reason! With vintages... More

We visited the Inn for the third time since July 2013. While the Inn and the surrounding suites were impressive, we enjoy their Overlook Suites, East and West because it is above the Inn and each suite has a front and back porch with great views of the mountains. The suites are spacious with many amenities, including a heated floor... More

Seriously, this restaurant is perfect. The old Inn is beautifully restored. The restaurant blends the old inn structure with modern elements and decor. The chairs are very comfortable and the tables are large, but set far apart. You don't feel crowded or rushed. Every staff person was genuinely friendly and engaged. They were all very aware of and concerned with... More

My wife and stayed at the Inn for our 48th anniversary. The dinner at Vintage was fabulous. Wednesday was "tapas" night. We split 10 amazing tapas plates, which were actually mini samples of main menu entrees. Each plate was unique and full of flavor. Better than the food was the service. After each 2-plate serving our servers (yes plural) gave... More
