The turkey club sandwich was tasty as was the Arnold Palmer I drank. Once they both arrived. It was odd to me, since there were about 6 other people in this nice, large restaurant.

Food was Great, Staff, friendly. Not a fan of High $$$ A la Cart menu. Such a "bad taste" for what should've been a wonderful dining experience.

I visited during Restaurant Week and had the Fixe Price (39.00) meal. Which was limited but a better deal than the normal menu which I thought was overpriced for what you got.

We were there on a Saturday evening - not too busy. We sat in a booth which was nice - overall though I think the ambience is a bit stark. Food and service were both very good though. We had the tenderloin and it was cooked perfectly. Also there was no problem with requesting special preparation to accommodate some dietary... More

I like the quiet ambiance of this restaurant in the evening, we went quite early so that may be a factor. This was my second visit, the first one caused me to return , the second not so great......seems like the food is not consistent.

We stayed at the hotel across the parking lot and found our way into Equus. The bartender was very down to earth and the atmosphere was friendly.

Good service, plentiful food stations, scrambled eggs that are light and fluffy, sweet and savouries, lots of fresh fruit and great coffee. We ate till we were satiated. A fine hotel for a restful stay.

Arrived at 7:15. We were the only people in the dining room. (Not a good sign. Another couple, in shorts and tanks tops, arrived a little later.) Decor is Scandinavian minimalist, but dark. Wine list average, but not too expensive. Service was good (better be, with no one there.) Food had touches of goodness, but on average = average. Ho-hum.... More

We did not want to drive anywhere for dinner and decided to try the Equus at the Fountain Grove Inn where we were staying. What a nice surprise. Very professional and attentive waiters and good service. The place seemed fancy when we walked in, but we were allowed to come in with sandals on, no remarks there. The menu is... More
