The food was a new spring menu, everything was fresh and delicious, has mostly seafood. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio and viewing the vineyards.

This was a nice place for a lunch and a meal, taking a break from wine tasting, and sit outside and enjoy the weather!

If you plan to charge the price, then you should provide the service and atmosphere. Bouquet did neither. There is too much competition in town for this restaurant not to step up it's game. The food is very good (which raised the overall rating to "average" from a "poor" experience), but unfortunately too pricey for the atmosphere and the other competition. Granted if you are staying at the inn, your offerings are limited if you want to stay close, but as a local, I would recommend coming into town. At these prices, you can find much better service, atmosphere and frankly, similiar food offerrings.

The restaurant is basically in the lobby...a set up similar to what you would find for a hotel lounge in a Hilton or Hyatt. I was expecting so much more. It's a beautiful hotel and the restaurant should have been enclosed to create a more private and initimate experience.

The service, while very friendly, was very slow. Winery restaurants typically tend to run on the slower side of pace, but it took 20 minutes to receive our drinks and 40 minutes to receive our food. And the restaurant was not busy for a weekday night. That was not relaxing.

When we left, we took a look down stairs at the Cellar, which was much more pleasing in appearance and initimacy - staying closer to the decor of the inn. We plan to make a return visit to try the Cellar - whose prices seem more in line.

In our opinion, the inn would be better served to change the space, make the restaurant a lounge and turn the lounge into a restaurant fitting of its surroundings.

There aren't many places you can get dinner if you are staying at a winery and don't want to drive into town. And until Ponte opened for dinner there wasn't anything that was good. Bouquet is really good. The menu might look similar to others but the quality is much, much better. Ponte has a wood (grapevine) fired pizza restaurant too and we are going to try it next time.

Loved the small intimate dining room and adjacent "living room"..wished we had moved over to the living room area with the fireplace to enjoy our dessert! Chef's special of lobster with pasta was delicious. the appetizer of cheese gelato with balsamic reduction was deliciously rich!
