Despite the rain, the experience was fantastic. The staff / chef accommodated my pregnant wife’s dietary restrictions and the alternatives were perfect. The food and win pairing was incredible and very unique / creative. We will certainly be back soon.

Our special annual celebration that never dissapoints with a new, seasonal menu each visit. Ambiance and service is delightful. I overheard someone's apt assessment that: the quality is so good without any pretentiousness. We will be back!

A flawless special-occasion dinner spot. Menu is extremely well thought out and freshest ingredients used. The view is amazing. Sit outside in the covered dining area. Service extremely attentive. They were very accommodating to dietary restrictions. This is a gem on top of a wooded hill. Not to be missed!

Perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon - beautiful setting overlooking Point of Rocks Bridge on the Potomac. Really very close to Michelin star service and presentation. Innovative dishes, solid wine list, well trained server (Michael). Locally sourced ingredients done extremely well. Book well ahead of time!

As someone appreciative of a great dining experience and having been lucky enough to experience that often enough to call out a gem, this hidden marvel definitely qualifies as superlative. Every course had depth, quality, and creativity. The view is spectacular and the service was extremely kind. Best meal in a long time! Chef Vincent is just outstanding.

We did the nine course progression menu. They did an excellent job managing a tree nut allergy and celebrating a birthday at our table. The food was phenomenal, even dishes with food we weren't find of we're stunning and delicious!

The Restaurant is a great destination for foodies, hill on a hill, with a sweeping panorama over the Virginia/Maryland countryside. The well-paced delivery of each course, with explanations of preparation and food sourcing, kept the meal flowing and the conversation going. A visit to each table by the owner added a personal touch to a sensational repast.

Although just over an hour drive from DC , it is well worth it. We went there for Mothers Day and enjoyed and excellent meal and great service. We asked the owner how a particular dish was prepared and she brought out the Chef who was a joy to talk to. This is a must for those who like authentic farm to table food prepared in an excellent way.

The service and food is outstanding. The only mistake was the portion of soup which was 2 tbsps and my friend got more and I got less and not served properly. But the service and the Manager Dakota are too good .

We had a great experience at the sunday supper! Service was great! We enjoyed everyone's company and hospitality. We were the first party to arrive for supper so the bartender and owner came out to greet us, give us the story of the restaurant and recipes. All in all, wholesome experience. We will be coming back!

The tasting menu, wine pairings, and service are truly outstanding, making this restaurant one of the very finest in the whole Washington area. The restaurant's location on a mountain top with a view of the river in the near distance adds its own special touch to an extraordinary eating experience. We come here as often as we can.

The food was SUPERB, let me start with that, but the ambiance was incongruent with the food and there was a major faux pas. The restaurant is on top of a small knoll overlooking the Potomac River, but it’s up a dirt/gravel road with COVID safe outdoor seating surrounded by weeds and not enough heaters to go around. Our service was very good and the food was amazing until we got to the entree. We asked for a pescatarian meal and it was confirmed before we arrived and when we were seated that we were dining Pescatarian, our menu even said ‘Pescatarian Menu’ at the top. Everything we ate seemed pescatarian, until it was time for the entree and we were served the lamb entree, we questioned it with the server and it was whisked away . . . minutes later a beet plopped on Tofu sauce appeared. It definitely seemed like a throw together and we were disappointed to say the least. Dessert was a save, but we left a bit unsatisfied. We drove almost two hours because we had heard such wonderful things. I’ll repeat the food was OUTSTANDING, but with this quality we expected more attention to detail and could have easily overlooked the lack of ambience.

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. You are correct with your observation of gravel driveway, mowing - rain delays - heaters for every guest . We do have an alternative with seating in the conservatory in case of inclement weather. There is no excuse for the mistake of serving you the lamb. I have spoken to all the staff. I was very disappointed to hear this. Making every dining experience memorable is my goal. Please accept my humble apologies. Beverly, Owner

A great place to celebrate my wife's birthday. Of course, the printed menus and well wishes from the staff on her birthday were very welcomed. We continue to be impressed with the service. Our waiter and his supporting cast were attentive and informative. This is a restaurant where the story about the source of the food and combination of the ingredients confirms what you are tasting. It is great to have so many courses (9) and just the right amount of food in each so you leave satisfied, but not stuffed. We can't wait to go back for another great experience.

Our second visit. Attentive service and, as we expected, delicious and interesting food we would never get at home. We loved the root vegetable "capuccino" and the fluke.
