“Tasty food and attentive service”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We spent the morning at Montpelier and decided to drive into Orange to find a spot for lunch. After consulting TripAdvisor and yelp, we chose Elmwood at Sparks, which did not disappoint! The chicken salad and quiche were exceptionally good (and my hubby and I are both a bit "picky")! Our waitress was pleasant, helpful, and kept our beverages full without being intrusive. Wholeheartedly recommend this place. (Free parking too!)

“Always good”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We visit Orange occasionally for R&R and always try to eat at Elmwood at Sparks once during our visit. It is consistently good and one of our favorite Virginia restaurants. The menu selections tend to be limited to a relatively few items, but they span the scope of practically anything we would want, so that is fine. Some of the selections change to allow for some creativity and variation in items. The wine selection is broad enough to find something good. Food preparation is normally excellent. Portions are of a good size, not too large as at some places.We tried a different dessert this time, a superb rhubarb crisp with ice cream.

“Delicious!”

My husband and I visited the restaurant for our five year anniversary. We were surprised and impressed to see our names and a welcome message to us at the top of our menus! Very sweet :o) Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. We will definitely visit this restaurant again! Thank you!
