This is a delightfully understated high-end culinary "experience" if you value extremely creative, locally sourced organic food served by professionals who understand fine dining. It's located in the VA country side, at the MD border, on a hill overlooking the Potomac (just off Highway 15). It's a short, uphill, dirt/clay road getting up to the restaurant.
You dine in a glass conservatory/greenhouse with original and festive art on the wall. You'll see raised beds of herbs and vegetables growing along the side. A gazebo outside and a covered terrace are also used for dining at times. There are acres of organic farm farther back that I hope to see some day.
The service competes with any high end restaurant in which I've dined. The unique and thoughtful combinations of food are amazing! That doesn't necessarily mean you'll love every single thing, but you'll be enthralled and adore most of it. And, you'll have your senses and your emotions happily excited.
We had the Destination Menu - fixed price at $100pp. There were 8 small dishes including the sorbet and amuse bouche. We were pleasantly sated by the experience in every realm. There is a full bar and a pastry chef that will roll out his gastronomic exclamation point to an already fabulous meal. But, honestly, at the heart, it's REAL food, creatively prepared. If you like this sort of thing, don't hesitate to try it.
(As for my rating below, they have a full bar regarding wine and spirits, but it's not a "bar scene" kind of place. It's for drinking while dining. And, I don't know how often they use the outdoor pavilion area for seating.)
