Menu choices were unique and creative ... food was excellent and service was phenomenal ... not surprised because it is in Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, a Relais and Chateaux hotel and spa.

Beautifully decorated, excellent food and great service. We had an excellent evening. We sat in the center of the room and it was quite noisy. Would recommend requesting a remote table if it was for a special couples dinner.

The bacon I had for breakfast was some of the best I have ever had. It was smoked, and was good and thick. They have a good selection on the menu. We will eat dinner there next time.

Innovative farm-fresh cuisine in an environment of relaxed elegance. Most menu items sourced locally and grown organically at The Farm at Old Edwards. Dine indoors year-round or outdoors in the warm months at the Wine Garden beside the beautiful waterfall.
