We love bringing out of town guests here. The food and service are always on pointe. It is one of our favorite dining venues in town. Definitely worth seeking out.

We visited the hotel and the winery for a quick anniversary getaway. The dinner was very good, though my Rock Fish was a rad over cooked. The WW Cab was VERY tasty and the Strawberry Shortcake desert was perfect. We would definitely recommend this place.

First time there and we were impressed. Foie Gras and Lamb chops were delicous and the chef was able to make my wife's well done fillet, juicy. A magician!
