One of the fanciest places I've ever been to! Holy Cow from start to finish every part of your experience was thought of. Not to mention they were really killing it with the holiday spirit - the decoration, the live piano player, the many fireplaces avaialble. I was worried about french servings, but the dishes where the perfect amount of real hunger. They were very attentive to any sepcial requests as well. I only had to note in my OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating a birthday - I did not mention it upon arrival - and they came out at the end of the night with a birthday candle on dessert! What a great expereince!! <3

Even in the midst of a pandemic, Antrim delivered a wonderful experience. Drinks, food, service all excellent. The house is still decorated beautifully!

Our server/sommelier was excellent. We enjoyed everything!

Thank you for a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy holiday season.

Felt that our server was a tad pushy with the wine offering. We said we were not interested in the special of the eve, he then brought a bottle for our inspection. He was also rather loud and a bit too talkative with the tables. We had to pour a refill of our wine at one point. Ambiance wonderful,food excellent.

We were greeted at the door by a friendly attentive staff member and escorted to our beautiful table in a small romantic room with only 4 tables. The floors were stone and one wall was a lovely fire place with a warmly lit fire. On our table was a personalized menu greeting us with Happy Birthday wishes. Due to the virus, we were not able to enjoy the usual way appetizers are served- upstairs socializing with other guests. Instead we were given several personally made appetizers at our table. I had informed the restaurant of my gluten allergy and inability to digest red meat when I made the reservations. So, my appetizers were made special for me. Both mine and my husbands were beautifully presented and delicious. The evening continued to be perfect with exceptional service and delicious food. Since I was having fish and my husband boar, we needed help selecting a wine to pair with both. The Sommelier was very helpful and we both enjoyed the pairing. We did not consider the cost to be extravagant at all and quite appropriate for what we ordered. Cocktails, appetizers, first course, salad/soup, 4 wines to pair with them, entree and paired bottle of wine, dessert and port- about $140.00 per person plus tip.
There was no time that evening we were not having a wonderful experience.......... the staff- superb, the food- excellent. A beautiful night.

One of the finest dining experiences my wife and I have ever had. The food was sensational. Every course offered a new experience. If you get opportunity to order it, the lobster bisque was the absolute standout of the evening.

The environment couldn't have been better for an anniversary dinner. Our waitress, Porsche, made us feel incredibly special by providing excellent service and wine pairing choices throughout the evening. It was quiet and elegant.

I could not recommend the Smokehouse any higher. They exceeded all expectations, and I cannot wait to dine there again.

Tremendous culinary experience. Six course menu with four courses having several options from which to choose. There were vegetarian options, but we skipped those. We paid extra for a three wine pairing and for foie gras. The wine pairings were very good. The foie gras came with an extra wine pairing at no additional cost. Given the setting and the exceptional service, the meal was at a reasonable price compared to other extraordinary dining experiences. If we had skipped the foie gras, it would have been a bargain. Unlike some first rate meals in other places, I was stuffed by the end. All in all, a wonderful time and perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
