Our neighborhood crew ......4 couples.....went there for Valentine's Day dinner. Been there several years ago and very good. Well, it was pretty bad. Waitress told us that we had to order from specials for night and not menu. This was not posted ahead on website. Choices were limited only 6 that I remember....shrimp and grits, braised lamb, steak, stuffed trout,... More

It would be great if the chef knew how to properly cook a steak and the waiter was not condescending. I ordered a med rare filet only to receive a hockey puck, well done steak. When I cut into it in front of the waiter, the one with the beard and pony tail, he said "that is med rare". This... More

Ambience leaves a good amount to be desired - given this is close to Wake Forest, the student influence is clear to be seen. Food is okay - farm to table is pretty accurate but the innovation with the ingredients is pretty limited. The dry aged steak had a good flavor but (I was with a table of seven) arrived... More

Sadly, the Diamondback did not live up to my expectations. Ribs were black and smothered in a thick sauce, to hide the fat I guess. Slaw was ok, bread was pathetic, asparagus was ok, service was a little overbearing, restaurant menu does not match the online menu. Only 8 people in the restaurant, I can see why. I just found...

Diamondback grill cannot decide what it is. The place has tables that are set with white tablecloths but then have a white sheet of paper covering the clothes. Very reminiscent of the chain Macaroni Grill which caters to families. This place, which is very pricey, clearly is not children friendly. I was in the mood for light fare so only... More

Intimate fine dining area. The food is are excellent and not overpriced. Had the BBQ chicken sandwich which was very good and my wife had the oyster salad which she thought was excellent. The service was also excellent. Great place for a night of great food.

This place was awesome. Was in town with my husband on a business trip and stumbled onto this place. Great atmosphere, food and service. We had the pork chop which was on special and the crab cakes.

This restaurants name doesn't do it justice. This is one of the best restaurants in Winston-Salem, NC. It is located in a neighborhood area which houses many Wake Forest Grad students and Wake Forest Medical students. There is a big bar on one side and a smaller more intimate fine dining area on the other side. The food and drinks... More

Hidden away in an upscale neighborhood you would never expect to find such a jewel. Very nice, and spacious bar on one side and a small restaurant on the other. Everything was wonderful. Definitely a recommendation - you will enjoy the experience.

This restaurant does an excellent job of preparing tasty and innovative meals. But the service is sometimes overstated. Our waiter kept telling us that he would provide "amazing service" but there were often things that were overlooked... like proper silverware. Don't set expectations that you can't deliver. It was good service, but not amazing.
