Description: Extremely Fresh, Approachable and Refined Drawing both inspiration and purpose from its location on farmland in Middleburg, VA, the restaurant at Goodstone Inn & Estate seeks to provide its guests with an unparalleled dining experience. The quality of produce, both cultivated and foraged, found outside the back door of the kitchen provides Chef Tarver King and his team with pristine ingredients that make up a meal representative of this place in every moment of each season.

Everything was "large"...the house, cottages and grounds, the swimming pool setting, the sunny, windowed dining room, the food so flavorful and beautifully prepared and served, the wine selection and the whole experience. The four of us truly enjoyed a leisurely, quiet late November lunch in this most elegant setting an hour from the Potomac through the rolling hills of horse country. It was fairly expensive ($250 plus tip) but, we all agreed, well worth it. This is truly a prime spot for a special occasion. We felt well-treated and royally fed. We had delicious lobster bisque and salad "first plates" and 2 different steak options...all superb, melt-in-your-mouth tender and perfectly cooked and presented.

Dear Karen P.

Thank you for your nice comments about your recent lunch at the Goodstone Inn. As you mentioned even though we are close Washington D.C. within a short drive it is an escape to a beautiful stress free environment.

I am delighted that you enjoyed the food and the ambience. The staff and I encourage you and your friends to visit us all times of the year, as our farm to table menu adjusts seasonally to feature the best ingredients available.

Regards,

Our appetizers were very good however the entrees that everyone in my group ordered were not good. The ambiance is like that of a Swiss chalet--- high ceilings and beams and rustic. Not a romantic place.

Dear AlexaR,

I was sorry to see the we did not meet your expectations during your recent visit to the Goodstone Inn Restaurant. Your comments on the ambience of the dining room were not typical of what we normally hear, most guests love the setting and the quaintness of the room.

The quality of our food and service should always be of the highest and finest standards, not having the entrees match your satisfaction with the appetizers is not acceptable to us.

I would like to hear how we could improve on your recent experience and hope you will contact me.

Regards,

Craig Boyer
General Manager

Reservations for my birthday celebration were made in advance. When we arrived there were multiple cocktail tables with guests at them so we sat at the bar. After waiting for a while someone asked if we had been taken care of, we stated no and mentioned someone would be right out to help us. Still a few minutes go by until the bartender, who we assume was the manager came out to take care off us. Friendly but not like overwhelmingly wanted to greet and wow us from the beginning we order a half bottle of wine and glass of wine. After sitting for a while we decide to go in the dining room for our dinner reservation. Once seated, again had to wait for someone to come by the table to ask about beverage/food orders. To keep this short, we did the pre-fixe menu to include the chateaubriand. Food was excellent, wine selections for a small property great, and service was lacking. Seemed as though many tables this evening where there to celebrate special occasions, but overall the small details and attentiveness were not there for the entire evening, especially when including tip, the meal was over $300 for two! If the food wasn't as good as it was, most likely would not go back, but it was so good that even though the service was no where near where it should be for the price and small size(14 tables) we will still go back. Even on what I would assume was a slow night, 9 tables seated in a short time, there was only one server and the manager, both whom were taking orders and serving tables. Not sure if this is the norm but if they want to continue to have guests come back, service needs to be a lot more attentive.

This is in a beautiful setting atop a hill, and I only wish I could have seen it during the day. The food was delicious and they have great options to make the menu either prix fixe or a la carte. The prixe fixe option is a GREAT value, and the food is great. I really enjoyed the pasta and lamb.

beautiful property. provides water, soda in the house, very convenient.

enjoyed the 3 mile hike and afternoon tea and scones.

breakfast service needs improvement. we had to ask for menu ( should have been given automatically- i would think) and flag the waitstaff down for coffee, water etc and very slowwwwwwwwwww service. food was good but after a long wait and inefficient service, the food did not taste as good as it should have been. 1 server was taking to the guest for over 15 minutes while there was no other person around.

with new hotel like Salamander around, mgt should train the staff for better service. just my 2 cents
