This was a really excellent meal, it was a little on the pricey side, but well worth it. I especially loved the peach/white balsamic dressing on the salad (darn, I forgot to ask for the recipe). And the lamb was awesome. Members of my group...More

Great restaurant. We managed to work our way through quite a bit of the menu over three nights: all excellent and the lamb chops were outstanding! Great staff and good advice on choosing wine and also wineries to visit (thanks Grant).

Dinner was lamb and my wife had a steak. Both seasoned and cooked well. I would go back. Service was good at the hotel in general.

Great looking menu...only if they had a chef that could prepare the items like they deserve to be. Will not come back to spend a lot of money for flavorless food. Can't imagine that this place gets a lot of return business.

The 'large' trout recommended by the waitress was maximum 6 inches long. This together with the pale potatoes and vegetables was bland and unappetizing. The rib eye was tough and gristly. The worst steak we have had in the USA. The service was cold and...More
