  • Alban Vineyards Wine Dinner

    $198.00 per person

    Feb 10, 2022 only

    Our featured winery for this event, Alban Vineyards, is an especial treat that is certainly not to be missed; while John Alban, founder and proprietor of the esteemed vineyard and winery will be our keynote speaker and has only appeared at a small handful of public parties over the past twenty years, we’re also especially honored to be joined by the other two thirds of “The Alban Equation:” Mrs. Lorraine Alban, herself an enormous influence in the Alban Vineyard and the California wine industry as a whole, and Jared Alban, John and Lorraine’s son, who is the future winemaker and proprietor of this historic vineyard. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed by any serious wine-lover.

Chef Erkek's menu was fantastic! Our favorite menu items were the Scallops, Chevre & Beets, the Filet Mignon and the Halibut. We also chose the wine pairing option. Sara was very knowledgeable about the wines and made the event fun! I would definitely recommend The Smokehouse Restaurant and definitely plan to return again.

Excellent! As always. Beautiful atmosphere, exceptional service, and beautifully delicious food. We enjoyed a cocktail by our favorite bartender Paul. We had appetizers sitting by the fire with pianist, followed by a beautiful 6 course meal, to be followed by dance music and ending with bagpipers ringing in the new year. It was a magical night. As always.

I have never given a restaurant and OUTSTANDING rating across the board. I have eaten at restaurants all over the world. This restaurant Antrim 1844 gets that honor. I am lost for words when it comes to Sara Peregoff. Sara made us feel like we owned the restaurant. Do yourself a favor and have dinner there and request Sara Peregoff.

We have been going for years, the service has slipped some - the sommelier only paid attention to certain tables. We noticed our table was the only one she ignored. Otherwise, the food was outstanding.

Ok so this place is 5 star excellence with an atmosphere. You'll get a personalized menu with your name on it and several courses. Plan to drop a couple hundred bucks..but if ots a special occasion it's the best place. Two fireplaces welcome you. One word, Fantastic!

After dark it was tricky to find find out where to go. We walked into an empty hall way room and searched for someone to direct us, after which, all courtesy was displayed. We were promptly seated and attended. After drinks we were presented with a tasty "pour le bon bouch". The wine list was exceptional only to be surpassed by the service. The menu offered choices from four categories: appetizer, soup/salad, entrée, and dessert. The food was high quality prepared masterfully. My appetizer was seared scallops followed by salad. My entrée was lamb which was perfectly prepared. I chose the cheese assortment rather than the pastry assortment as dessert. The portions were small, but well selected.Two out of three were very good while a hard orange variety less so.

This was a true dining experience! A six course meal with the optional wine pairings selected by our personal server/sommelier! Dinner took 2-2.5 hours, and was amazing! My lamb shank was falling off the bone, and was the best I've ever had. Very expensive, but almost completely worth every penny!

Service was wonderful, great attention to detail; a staff member called me a couple of days ahead of our reservation to check if we had any special dietary requests or anything else that we would like. I requested a chair with arms for my husband and let them know that we were celebrating a birthday. I believe the menu is advertised as a five course dining experience but we enjoyed seven, and brought the cheese selection home with us. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. This was our second visit to Antrim and everything we loved about our first encounter was enjoyed equally on this most recent visit. We plan to dine there again in December when the place is at it’s most festive.

This restaurant is an absolute delight. What a phenomenal experience we had. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and they had specially printed menus. We were waited on hand and foot. The food was a revelation. The wine pairing was sublime. The service was perfection. It was our first time and the restaurant itself is so beautiful. It must be so amazing to dine there in the winter time with those fireplaces burning. A definite winner if you’re looking for a classy, delicious meal.
