I went for a romantic dinner at the Clifton Inn during a weekend to Charlottesville and my high expectations were exceeded! The grounds and the hotel itself are beautiful. There was plenty of choice on the menu, and the food was well presented and incredibly delicious!

I have been to a lot of places and eaten at a lot of restaurants. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. Absolutely amazing! Every morsels was pure heaven. The chef is clearly a culinary genius. I am an accomplished cook myself and this meal truly blew me away. Worth every penny.

Although the Clifton Inn is out of the way, it is well worth the drive. We had a lovely table on the porch. The waiter was knowledgeable about the food and the wine. The food was fantastic and on par with Le Bec Fin. The duck with fois gras was so good that we ordered a second serving. Wines by the glass were excellent. We may go back to Charlottsville just to eat at the Clifton Inn.
