Italian
The elegant balance we value in wine, the quality of celebration inherent in its welcome, inspire palate harmonies that are Virginian in resources and Northern Italian in perspective, in country dining of vivacity and refinement. Here the estate of wine is inhabited at its most seamless and complete, sustained behind the scenes by the rarest collaboration of colleagues gifted in cuisine, viticulture, horticulture and service.

The food was not only delicious, but featured unusual delicacies like fiddle ferns, which I had only read about. The service is attentive but unhurried, giving ample time to savor each course, and no one was waiting for our table. It was ours for as long as we cared to linger. The dining area is small, attractive and comfortable. A classy restaurant.

Due to the pandemic, we were not able to visit Palladio for over a year. We normally visit quarterly, each time they change the menu. This time was a chance to start to return to normal. We were welcomed by old friends from the wait-staff, and the selections and imaginative choices did not disappoint. We will return again when the menu is changed, and look forward to many more enjoyable Sunday lunches.

This was a truly delightful Saturday lunch. The ambience was great, the food excellent and the staff outstanding. Mustn't forget the wine, in particular the Cabinet Franc, which was just delicious. Pity we live 800 miles away!!

My first meal in a restaurant in over a year, and it was perfect! I will go back whenever I am in the area.

We had a lovely dinner. The appetizer -- fried artichokes -- was not what we had hoped. Plating of the dishes was a little slapdash. Our main dishes were excellent. Our waiter and all the people serving were attentive and professional and could not have been more welcoming or nicer. We had a lovely table facing windows and the sunset. That was much appreciated.

We had lunch, me and my wife, at the Palladio Restaurant last Saturday. The decor is
very pleasant and the service quite professional. I particularly enjoyed the ravioli as
first course.
Unfortunately, there is no longer a set price three-course lunch. Therefore, it is an expensive meal (170 $ for two, for a two-course lunch with one wine pairing and one dessert to share).
Nevertheless, it was still an enjoyable experience.

A very nice Anniversary lunch. Food and service were excellent. We’re seated in our preferred room at the restaurant.

We have previously dined here and intend to do so more often. Tasted some great wines that were served with the meal.

Food was fantastic, server was not. He was very unfriendly. When we only ordered "appetizers" he told us that they weren't very big - in a pretty crappy tone. We interpreted it as him being upset that we weren't eating enough, so his tip would be lousy. The people at the table next to us had a full 3 course meal and he laughed with them. He seemed "short" throughout our meal. Normally I would have tipped him poorly for his behavior. But we decided that, in this very difficult time, he must really need the money. So we tipped him around 35% and left a note saying that he needed to "lighten up". Its been a tough year for all of us!
