I think, like the rest of Winvian, the focus on theme has compromised the experience. The restaurant has reasonably nice dining room, but not overly comfortable (was hot that night due to fireplaces, but I was more speaking to the ambiance of the room itself). Local flowers are a nice touch, however.
The menu is very limited (four choices). The food was clearly fresh and well prepared, but a bit bland. Both of us had the halibut as this was the only fish choice, and the fish itself was good, but the presentation was a bit on the plain side.
I think maybe the reliance on only local ingredients affects the outcome. And the restaurant is prix fix, tip added automatically, and not cheap, so really for a cheaper bottle of wine and dinner at $300+, I expect more that this delivered.
That being said, as others have commented, the first courses we had (salad, angliotti) eclipsed the dinner itself.
The breakfast, however, was excellent (see main review of the hotel)!
