“Vintage Virginia - A Touch of Class in the Countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Impeccable service, imaginative menu, delightful atmosphere. I loved the quail as well as the corn pudding! And don't miss the Bourbon Chocolate Chocolate Chip ice cream. Who doesn't want a shot of that!

The restaurant has a well designed menu to suit most tastes. The preparation and presentation of the meal were up to the same high quality of the setting and decor. Very pleased.

“very good, but still can improve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Arrived 1 hr early and they sat us immediately. Server showed up quickly and took drink order. Pre-fix menu for V-day. Courses were brought timely except for the main course. WIfe and I both noticed several servers didnt know what table to take the food too. We saw 1 couple get 2 of the same course, the couple giggled and took the course again. We had 2 waiters bring us creamer/sugar for our coffee. The food was delicious I will have to say. Maybe they should have 1 water person, 1 coffee person. If I pay good money for food I want to be treated like a king. I should always have water available and dinner/dessert served in a timely manner. This place is beautiful, with gas fireplaces all lit up outside. I will come back here. The price is right and the food is very good. The servers just need to work on team work. The background music was good, but was a tad high, and could be turned down a notch.

“Perfect setting, perfect service and excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

The Inn at Willow Grove is in a restored mansion in a small, agricultural and historical Orange County, Virginia. I was totally unprepared for the sophistication of the rooms and decor, what a pleasant surprise. The server was totally dedicated to our table, she was professional but with personality. We had a five course meal an all courses were excellent. My husband an I dined with four other couples and their comments mirrored mine. As we were leaving we noticed a outdoor fire in a fireplace blazing in the winter snow. It truly was a wonderful setting. For Orange County it is on the expensive side, so we would probably limit our visits to special occassions.

Thank you for your kind comments! We have taken great care to restore the beauty and majesty to this historic landmark while also creating a sense of luxury, elegance and modern sophistication for our guests. We try to provide delicious five-star cuisine at reasonable prices. One suggestion we might make is to try our “Three on Thursday” weekly tasting special. Every Thursday, we offer a new, special tasting menu in which you can enjoy a three course meal for just $29.95. We post our “Three on Thursday” menu each week to our website, and if you send us your email address we can add you to our weekly menu mailings (you can also “like” us on Facebook and check our profile for weekly updates). Hope to see you there!
