We were celebrating our 70th birthday and the restaurant went the extra mile to make this visit special. The meal was not... More

An extraordinary dining experience, my wife had the seasonal sampling menu and I had the classic. The menu indicates 7 courses . . but with little "extras" it felt like ten courses! The dining room is so inviting, the staff superb, and Chris made sure everything was perfect. Since we were celebrating my birthday, they started off with a complimentary... More

Had a fabulous dinner here. The food is amazing and the staff is attentive. The decor and gardens are also a feast for the eyes. Loved the very amusing cheese cart (a cow that moos).

Delicious meal - great service. Be sure to ask for a tour of the kitchen and keep an eye out for the cheese tray as it passed by on a cow.

Eight friends had a wonderful evening at the Inn. The food is amazing...a true culinary delight. However, all of the women agreed that there were too many courses. The meal would have been even more enjoyable if the meal had 5 courses instead of 7. The service is beyond compare....every person we met was helpful, friendly and accommodating....from taking our...
