My wife and I were looking forward to a wonderful meal. After arriving, we were so impressed with the property, order drinks on the porch and enjoyed the beauitful views. Once we were seated, greeted by a nice waiter, we were served a little appertizer, with no flavor, maybe that was our first tip. We both order salads, could'nt believe... More

We ate their during our all inclusive stay. The first night was a 4 course meal. More than what we could eat. My wife was not feeling well, so the staff assumed she wasn't eating much because she did not like her chooses. So, they kept bringing her other plates to try. Even provided two deserts. My wife and I... More

The approach to Rowlands is a hint of what to expect. We were given a tour of the house which is magnificent. Several parties gathered on the front portico to watch the sunset and marvel at the beauty. Dinner was on the sun porch which only adds to the elegance of Rowlands. The sous Chef was in charge this night... More

We dined at Rowlands three nights during our stay at Westglow, and enjoyed eating our way through the menu. The flavors, preparation and presentation were outstanding. The staff was very helpful in suggesting wines that paired well with each course. I would highly recommend Rowlands for a fine dining experience.

My wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here, from the initial booking to the moment we left nothing could have been more perfect. We had drinks in the Sitting Room that overlooks the Canyon and then had a fabulous dinner with a nice bottle of Chateau Neuf Du Pape. From the wonderful Mushroom Soup and the incredible assortment on... More

First of all, I love when a restaurant incorporates fresh locally sourced foods. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast at Rowland's. Both were outstanding! Dinner was absolutely delicious, well-portioned instead of plate-stuffed madness! We enjoyed a leisurely dining experience and then a nightcap in the next room by the giant fireplace. Breakfast was full of fresh options including fruit, freshly... More

We have been there twice, both times have been great. The only negative was that our server did not know how to pronounce the special and it was one of my favorites and almost did not order it. I overheard another server describe the special and had a chance to change my order. Food and wine are outstanding.

My wife and I went for our anniversary. I made reservations for 7PM. They asked if we were celebrating anything special, and asked for my wife's name. We arrived a few minutes before 7. The valet parking made it easy to quickly get into the house from the rain without worrying about finding parking in the dark. They gave us... More

What an exceptional place. Gary is the restaurant manager and sommelier. It was my wife's birthday. I booked it through Open Table and noted that. Gary had ensured the table was decorated and there was a personalized card for her. He recommended a wine he'd brought in for Thanksgiving (it was exceptional). The amuse bouche was a pecan encrusted warm... More
