It took us three tries to get to a dinner at the Livery in Lewisburg - first time was their opening which was sold out, second time was a private party, but we did get in October 2013! The owners shared stories with us before our visit and we were enchanted to hear they used the cherry tree harvest from Stella's to build their bar and entrance door - sweet! We had an early dinner, the fireplace wasn't lit until later in the evening and our service guide was Alex, very nice gentleman.
Initial service was great - but the food took much longer than ancitipated for this early in the evening. Portions are what we would consider "post-modern" where emphasis is on fine combination of ingredients and picture perfect presentation. If you want to feel satiated, be certain to order an appetizer and dessert. The lamb chops were wonderful, not overcooked and flavorful; the oysters Rockefeller were unfortunately a little cool by the time they were served.
The atmosphere is comforting and wonderful, service is great, but unfortunately the food was average at best. We hope for better as we go back to the Greenbrier twice a year and love their location and history!
