Love the vineyard (different owners), the restaurant...not so much. The staff don’t even acknowledge you when you arrive. If you are able to flag someone down they’re rude. Disappointing especially after finding the staff at the vineyard so wonderful.

The escargots are as good as those in France and the veal dishes reminiscent of those in Austria. Unhurried service in an extremely cordial environment makes this restaurant a must visit. On both nights, the tables were full - testament to the quality of the...More

We stumbled upon this place by accident, as we were visiting the winery right next door. The food was amazing, service was great! We had warm weather and sat outside and had stunning views of the lake! Very much recommend this place.

Used to be one of my favorite spots as the location overlooking the lake is fabulous.The food is also very good, however, the facility is much in need of a face-lift. If the outdoors isn't available, the indoor seating is dark, dismal and depressing.

The dress code is casual, but tasteful. I'm sure they can accommodate gluten free, things are prepared to order. Entrees range from 18 to 28 dollars, very generous portions. Worth a visit. You could call ahead for gluten... More
