Food was excellent, but did not understand from the menu that our beef Wellington was actually a gourmet burger. While delicious and rich, the cost was much higher than I would normally expect for a burger and fries.

the outdoor setting of the restaurant was very nice-they had a jazz trio playing the night we were there the food was very good my only suggestion would be to have a little more extensive menu for the outdoor section

Husband and son decided we should have dinner in the garden for my 64th birthday. It was special just to spend time with "the boys" with some great food. From the signature pate to the delicious lemon meringue dessert complete with cappuccino it was perfect! It is hard not to enjoy the beauty of the building and the grounds.

Great food - the cuisine is fabulous. The prices are high so be prepared. Light dinner for two with drinks is around $150. The gardens are beautiful - drinks are delicious. Not for a conservative budget - but excellent for a special night or for those with a bit extra to spend.

We absolutely love Carriage House. We arrived early, sat in the lounge while our take was prepared. The staff is so wonderful and accommodating. Even though they have awards this is not a stuffy atmosphere. It's in an old church, the decor is very nice, the change seasonally. Our food was wonderful, I had the NY strip, my husband had...

We arrived on time. An early 6:00 seating. And though our reservation and table were not ready, the hostess directed us into the small bar for a complimentary cocktail. There should not be an 18 year old single malt staring at me when the term complimentary is used. The staff was quite attentive, almost to a fault. Our server was... More

Very pleasant dining experience. The ambiance was nice. The food was prepared beautifully. My critique would be that I was expecting more French influence in the dishes and would have liked to be able to see the menu online.
