Our meals were both really good but the dessert was to die for. Service was great. We would highly recommend.

The food is excellent; the service can be a bit slow, but the servers are friendly. We love the elegant look of the dining room. This restaurant is quiet, never too crowded.

... in a wonderful dining room. We stopped in to see the historic village and had lunch at the VI hotel. We sat in the large formal dining room and ordered a light lunch of sandwiches, tea and coffee. It's not cheap, but was a nice calm place to sit and watch the world go by..... YMMV

We had dinner here on a relatively quiet March evening. We were warned in advance that they were short staffed. Service was slow but the servers as attentive as they could be in the circumstances. The food was okay but not excellent. The dining room is, however, beautiful, and so well worth a visit.

We were there for afternoon drinks. We intended to dine in their restaurant. We didn't. The title says it all.

We ended up here for dinner on our one night in Ferndale because the only alternative was pizza and we weren't disappointed. Delicious food and fabulous service.

I would consider this an "upscale" restaurant for Ferndale. We didn't have reservations so they sat us in the bar area, totally okay with us. The service here was great, everyone always seems to have a smile on, a bit slow but they're were only three servers and one of them was also the bartender, we were not in a... More

I love dining at this restaurant! The food is as unique as it is flavorful, with delicious pairings of sweet and savory, an abundance of cheeses, both local and imported, and delicous sauces, chutney and marmalades to accompany every dish. The Baked Brie en Croute is my first choice for a starter, and I absolutely love the Chicken and Mushroom... More
