“Not the anniversary dinner we wanted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had high hopes for our experience at this fine dining restaurant at The Inn at St. Johns, and so we selected this as the place to celebrate our anniversary. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment.

Upon arrival at the hostess stand, we found a complete absence of staff. We waited for what seemed to be an eternity, and then the bartender took pity on us and seated us. We were seated at a booth (our request) in a very small dining room that was completely overwhelmed by a loud, unruly, corporate conference dinner of about 30 people. My wife and I could not hear each other speaking. Our server was gracious and moved us to a table in the bar.

Being seated in the bar was OK, but the surroundings were not what we had been seeking for our special night: TVs, a foosball table, a cart with cases of wine to be unloaded, and a drunken guy "mentoring" a young female associate. But, this was better than the dining room.

We were given a wine list which was missing a page - so we had to get a new one. The wine we selected (prices were a bit on the high side ...) had gone bad. They were gracious about it, and replaced it with another bottle.

The meals were about average. The bread basket contained thinly sliced rustic bread, which was just about impossible to chew. The butter was flavored with herbs - but rock hard. The salads were fine, but we barely had time to finish them before our entrees were placed on the table.

The entrees represented a nice effort. However, I ordered my steak "very rare ... no, really, RARE". It came out a solid "medium". Since I had already returned the wine, I just accepted the steak quietly. My wife's steak was excellent, but it was accompanied by a side dish that she could not identify (some combination of cheese and potato, which did not complement the meal).

The server made a very nice gesture of giving us a complimentary platter with two mini-desserts, with a "Happy Anniversary" greeting written in dark chocolate.

The bill came - and the wine was priced incorrectly (did not equal the price on the wine list). When I pointed it out, it was quickly corrected.

The staff was trying hard, but they seemed overworked and spread too thin. The food was average - nothing more. The pricing was high considering the value received. The atmosphere was ruined by the corporate conference party; they should have been placed in a separate, private room. In summary, I can't identify a reason to return.

“Not worth it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

The food was average and the bill was too high! The appetizer we got (the feta and artichoke dip) Tasted like one that you would buy in the frozen food section and reheat in the microwave. We also had a very average breakfast here. It was a bit pricey for what we had.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Lunch was fabulous here - always is. They serve creative dishes that are "homemade" and delicious. It is not uncommon for them to make their own dressings, mayonnaise, etc...

“Oktoberfest-What a Fest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I have eaten here several times and have yet to be disappointed. Our server John was great and the service is spot on. We were here for a beer-food paring dinner and it was outstanding. not to be missed if they do it again.
