A destination for people who like the view, fantastic when the weather is good and people can sit outdoors. Menu is mostly German and European style; food is all right, but not as good as the destination or the view.

Love the vineyard (different owners), the restaurant...not so much. The staff don’t even acknowledge you when you arrive. If you are able to flag someone down they’re rude. Disappointing especially after finding the staff at the vineyard so wonderful.

The escargots are as good as those in France and the veal dishes reminiscent of those in Austria. Unhurried service in an extremely cordial environment makes this restaurant a must visit. On both nights, the tables were full - testament to the quality of the...More

Great start but average finish to our dining experience. The escargot and liver pate were fabulous! They are both excellent choices to start off your meal. Our dinner experience was just average. We were hoping for more with our meals of duck and chicken cordon...More

The dress code is casual, but tasteful. I'm sure they can accommodate gluten free, things are prepared to order. Entrees range from 18 to 28 dollars, very generous portions. Worth a visit. You could call ahead for gluten... More
