This was a special I had for dinner. It was a rack of lamb with Blackberry bourbon sauce. You actually got a full rack of lamb it was amazing best I've ever had definitely recommend coming back here staff was wonderful very accommodating it's a BYOB which is a plus . Atmosphere is beautiful. Well done!

The first time we came here was absolutely amazing. Today's experience was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. I will NOT be back! We waited over an hour for salads that did not have ingredients that the menu stated. No bread, the waitress stated that they "kinda ran out. I then asked for croutons like my... More

Went back because we were excited to hear it was reopened. Service was great. Food was marginal Ceaser salad dressing was to bitter, no anchovies within , grated cheese in super small amounts. By far the worst so called croutons ever. Toasted on the grill one side only with grill spray and the other side white and cold. Chicken cutlet... More

There are several options on the menu that are not executed as such. For example the Mediterranean Pasta is advertised with Artichokes and Broccoli Rabe- it came with spinach and canned fibrous artichoke hearts that still had a heavy vinegar brine that ruined the oil and garlic sauce. The seafood pasta is listed as having a "light tomato sauce" and... More

Unsure where to eat we decided to take a chance and go to Fairview Lake Cafe. It was a beautiful room filled with a huge stone fireplace right in the center. It is a BYOB of wine for a corking fee which is donated to a local charity. We did not know about the BYOB but were satisfied having just... More

This is my second visit to the newly opened Fairview this summer. Again, the live music (Jae Merrill & Gabby Borges) was a huge plus. The food was even better than on our first visit. I had the steelhead trout & my husband had the stuffed salmon. Both outstanding meals. Our waiter was very accommodating without "hovering". Dessert was a... More
