Expectations are everything, and I've got to say that, even with the good reviews in TripAdvisor, I was expecting something a bit less impressive than what we experienced at Hillebrand. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking that it was going to be just a big winery, moving people through the conveyor belt, trying to push wine off on them along the way. Boy was I wrong. These folks know how to serve a meal. Of course, they feature their own wines (and, of course, you end up wanting to buy some of them in the wine shop), but every single dish was exquisitely prepared from beautiful, fresh ingredients, and the wine pairings were spot-on. We stopped in for lunch, and had the tasting menu, and I can highly recommend that option. At the time of our visit, it was $76 per person for 4 courses and 4 wines - a very reasonable price, and more than worth every penny.
Our server (and all the staff, for that matter) was friendly and professional, with just the right blend of friendly attentiveness and discretion. Beautifully done.
We sat outside under one of the large umbrellas on a beautiful September afternoon and looked at the vineyards in the sunshine. We loved everything about this place and the meal we had here. We will definitely come back next time.
