Had a lovely anniversary meal at the restaurant. We had told them ahead of time that it was a special dinner, so they put us in a private area of the restaurant. They also offered us a complimentary glass of champagne or dessert. The food was delicious (the duck was prepared perfectly), the service attentive and the atmosphere cozy. Would... More

I found the presentation a tad fussy..and light on vegetable.. nouvelle cuisine is fine, but please, don't sacrifice a... More

Charming restaurant in the old grist mill. The service was superb! Friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and simply pleasant! The chef weaves magic in that kitchen. The owners are on site and made sure our meal was to our liking. I've NEVER enjoyed a dining experience as much as I did in this restaurant - and I've eaten in restaurants... More

The first night we had the onion soup and red snapper with risotto...yum! The second night we had cheese plate and filet. Wow!! Best Bernaise sauce I've had... More

They have a varied menu and present some unique dishes without gilding the lily. The food represent s the area and the season. There was a lamb dish served over a... More

The restaurant was a good change from the Homestead hotel restaurants, more affordable and just a wonderful meal. The wine cellar here is great and the pricing of the wines was fantastic.

We ordered the smoked trout appetizer, the petit filet, the salmon, and the chocolate cake dessert. My husband had a beer and I had the pink bellini martini and we each had a salad that came with our entree. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. A fantastic value for the such a high caliber of service and food.... More
