I have no idea why there are 1, 2, 3 or 4 reviews of the Ryland Inn. This is a very high end restaurant with excellent food, excellent atmosphere and excellent service. The coffee was the worst thing that I had and it was pretty good. I had the pear salad and then the pork somethingarather. It was very good. Portions weren't huge but I wasn't feeling hungry when I left.

My husband and I had a very good, but not outstanding experience at the Ryland Inn. We did the tasting menu and I added the wine pairings.

Best part of the meal:

· The Ribeye and sides had a wonderful flavor and the meat was very tender. By far this was our favorite part of the meal.
· The cheese course was delicious, had good texture and was so pretty. The cherries were great with it.

The items which were not up to par:
· My snapper had something bad crunchy in it, which my husband’s did not. My husband heard it and thought I bit into a bone. Never figured out what it was, but it did turn me off on that course.
· The lobster course was good, loved the mushrooms, but lobster itself was a tad overcooked.

The service was good, but again, not outstanding. My wine was always served some time after the course was delivered. I have done many a tasting menu and my experience is it is poured right before or just as the course is served. At Ryland, it was when the waiter looked over and saw we had the course, he then brought the wine over. I wait until I get my wine to experience the meal and my husband, out of courtesy, waits as well. We would get the course delivered and look around waiting for the waiter. Timing was off.

The bar area looked interesting and the restaurant itself was lovely.

For the price of the meal, I expected more highlights. That being said, I am still remembering how good the ribeye was and I may be back, and have a steak dinner at the bar.

Lovely dinner for my wife to conclude our typical weeklong celebrations, matching or exceeding other top restaurants. From top to bottom, a beautifully designed experience. The fragrant, nicely arranged flowers planted outside presented a pleasant welcome. Interior is classically appointed but not stuffy, and the bar looks inviting for drinks whether or not dining.

The waiter was gracious and helpful, particularly with accommodating our request to omit shellfish and pork, which was included in the items we otherwise found most appealing as described in the menu. Our food came out a delightfully slow pace, hitting high notes as my wife and I passed the dishes back and forth, like usual.

Carrot and beet soup tasted fresh from the garden. Pasta mid-course was similar to spaghetti noodle but with an added texture and buttery, pesto-like sauce. Halibut had masterful mix of slight crispness and then melted in your mouth. Tuna sat on avocado purée that was delightful, just minimize how much you take with each bite of fish.

We mostly liked each of these dishes equally, but not so with dessert. Surprisingly, my wife was a bigger fan than I of the chocolate ganache (described as a homemade candy bar). And I much preferred the panna cotta's lighter texture and fruity accompaniment. Decaf coffee was perfectly strong but refills were unfortunately not hot.

Highly recommended! (dined 4/22/2013)

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. He rented a car and drove all the way from NYC. I was skeptical considering NYC has many great restaurants. This place can definitely compete with any high end restaurant in NYC. The tasting menu was amazing. They served us foie gras, cooked mackerel, lobster tail, steak...Wow! I was truly blown away. The service was 4 stars. This place is a gem!
