The Summit Restaurant came highly recommended. I will say it was good, but not over the top. The presentation of each dish was beautiful, however the taste lacked the 'wow" factor. The surroundings were beautiful, but the service could use a bit of help. Overall, our experience was good, just not what we were expecting.

Great place to go for a special dinner. We went and have been before and my compliments to the chef as he continues to serve really wonderful dishes. The menu is pretty much the same as it has been in the past. I had a wonderful dish called The Doumbek which is 2 Portabella mushrooms stacked over polenta or rice... More

If you like shrimp and scallops, get the Italian Angel! It's my favorite meal and I can't order anything else when I go there because I don't want to miss out on that dish. Very fresh food, and nice, quaint Victorian atmosphere with professional staff. You won't be disappointed.

This is one of our favorite places to go when my husband and I are looking to have a fancy dinner or for a special occasion. We've been there on slow nights and also busy nights (Valentine's Day for example 2 years ago). The service has always been very good and wait staff polite and knowledgeable. Food is delicious and...

It has been a few years, but my husband and I went for an anniversary dinner. We had finished our meal when a ROACH crawled out of the bread basket. I trapped it under a glass and summoned the waitress. She took it back to the cook who expertly deemed it was NOT a roach and that they didn't have... More

We had a wonderful meal with excellent service and food. The Italian Angel is a delicious dish with scallops and shrimp over angel hair pasta. The atmosphere is wonderful with your choice of inside or outside dining. We really enjoyed reading about the history of the building itself and the families who lived there. My only complaint is that it's... More

We were celebrating my son's college graduation with a family dinner celebration. When the reservation was made and then later confirmed with a credit card never was I informed that there would only be a price fixed menu for the evening, a very expensive price fixed menu. For at best average food and service our bill averaged $90 per person... More

The Summit is some of the best food I have every had. Every dish is perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned. I usually pull out the salt and pepper shakers but through our many visits I've never even thought about them. Dishes like the crab encrusted grouper have a surprising slight sweet nuance. The vegetarian dish is surprisingly complex.Chicken dishes are... More

Visiting the area from Massachusetts to have a special birthday dinner for our granddaughter at Virginia Tech. None of us had been here before but on a Sunday evening we were made to feel special. The waitress was ready to accommodate us on the patio, on the porch, or in the dining room, even though outside places had not been... More

We phoned ahead to make a reservation for a Wednesday night dinner for a special occasion here in late April. We needn't have bothered, the restaurant was nearly deserted. Only three other tables were occupied, all of us in a single room because there was no need to access the other rooms (each room in the house holds about 6-8... More
