I've been here twice now, but I love it. The chef was kind enough to come talk to the table next to us. We overheard and learned that he cooked under Emeril Lagasse for 2 years! My boyfriend got the creole and I got the Gorgonzola chicken. Both were amazing!

Took family for son's 21st birthday. Food was quite good and atmosphere was very nice. Haley did a great job of taking care of us throughout the meal. The flambeed dessert was a fun way to end the evening. Will return.

Actually the food was good, but the service . . . . . very slow, took us 1.5 hours for lunch, just sandwiches (and due to the slowness, some of our food was not hot). Now the winery was very nice, had some good wines, staff was friendly and service was very good.

It's pricey, it's delicious, the wine pairings are amazing and spot on!
We didn't know the menu before booking our stay at The Villa B&B, but we would have happily would have ordered anything on their normal menu....everything looked and sounded fantastic.

Instead we treated ourselves to the Chef's Table experience, in a word = wonderful! Five-courses, paired with 5 wines, the food was prepared to reflect a survey we completed before arriving. Every course was a work of art in presentation and taste. Chef Chris really impressed us with what he created for us, it was a wonderful food event that we will fondly reflect on....and maybe experiment in trying to recreate the flavors and foods in our own kitchen.

The wait staff are amazing, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The restaurant atmosphere is lovely, wine themed, with barrels of port stacked around the room.

We really enjoyed our stay at Messina Hof, thank you for the experience!

I loved it, the iced tea was great! and even the water tastes great there. I had the turkey sandwich, on rye bread and it was a merriment of flavors
