My wife and I went to the Hillbrook Inn on May 5 for dinner. The property is very secluded sitting far back off of the road. When we arrived, the place seemed deserted. We walked in the entrance to what they call the tavern, but it was actually just an old room with a very small bar in the corner, and no people. No employees or patrons. We walked up a small staircase to what appeared to be a library, and still saw Noone. We kept walking hoping to find an employee, and after walking past the kitchen, we were met by a waitress outside of the dining room. We had reservations for 8:00 and it was only 7:45. She told us that they seat promptly at 8:00, so she offered us a glass of wine and told us we could wait in the living room, or anywhere else we wanted. There wasn't one single person on the dining room so I found it kind of strange that we couldn't sit at a table. At 8:00 we were seated in the small, creepy dining room room. Each course of the meal was served to the entire room at the same time. All 5 courses was delicious, probably the best food we have ever eaten. After the meal the chef visited every table and spoke with the guests.
Overall it was a very interesting experience. I must say that even though the food was superior, I was disappointed for the price we paid. I am glad we did it, but it is not my cup of tea.
