It's best to make reservations to eat here. We did get in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. You can walk through the garden while you wait for your food. It's like eating at a private home. The menu is unknown till the chef does his shopping. There are several choices to pick from.

Our lunch was an occasions of four friends who had a few years to catch-up on. The food was good and service staff delightful. The owner showed up in the dining area after about an hour and was rude and obnoxious - best describe as having the personality of a week-old urine sample !!!!

A fascinating outpost, Molly Ward Gardens! We stopped in for a midweek lunch and had the entire restaurant to ourselves. There were but two employees, who were gracious and friendly. The menu (delivered on a large rolled over whiteboard) was 5 choices brief and tempting from top to bottom. My Lamp & Sausage was delicious with a perfectly medium rare... More

This was to be such a special occasion. The food was good and the gardens were beautiful. When we asked simply to have the meat cooked a bit more, the head cook was insultingly rude to my entire family. It was an embarrassing and frankly mortifying experience to ever be spoken to in such a rude manner. I can't understand... More

Loved everything about this restaurant! Charming staff with generous portions of food. We were there on Sunday, June 12th and the sun was shining to make the walk through their gardens very enjoyable. Three red breasted sapsuckers were chasing each other about and then landed on a tree. How cool was that? A couple with a 4 year old and... More

We went here for a Mother's Day dinner. The carder salad was exceptional, as was the beef. The crab tower was 4 star, but all the rest perfect. Good cocktails and a good choice of wine by the glass. It is one of our favorite occasion restaurants.

What a gem. Everything was fabulous. Food, wine, location. Had a steak done exactly as I asked for and was so tender it melted in my mouth. Soup was great and desert after a walk around the gardens with wine and camera in hands was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

What a hidden gem. We had breakfast in the outdoor garden. So pretty with lots of flowers and trees surrounding you. Lots of antiques and art to look at too. Wonderful, locally sourced ingredients. Started with blueberry coffeecake and the sweetest fruit plate. Then had a local sausage sampler with an omelette fit for 2. So worth the drive if... More
