Incredible, service, food, and atmosphere. Took my husband here for his birthday and it’ll be one we will never forget. We tried the 5 course with wine pairing and everything we were served was so tasty. Can’t wait to come back!!

Beautiful country location, authentic and well prepared french cuisine, best wine list in Middleburg, super friendly staff, clean, responsive to safety concerns. The somm previously worked in DC and has a global and incredibly well curated wine list perfectly matched with thr cuisine. Deep burgundy and loire offerings - a real treat for wine lovers abd very fairly priced. Highly recommend.

The restaurant is delicious and the service was great. Our family loved this place. Yes it was expensive but that was expected. My kids took photos of their food and my son loved the wagyu beef. My wife’s Guinea hen was great and my daughter loved the venison. I enjoyed the lobster pasta. Our waiter was attentive and patient and clearly took pride in the care they put into things like our kids’ mock tails, which included ingredients from the restaurant’s own garden. Will return to this place.

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary and they were informed it was a special occasion. We were expecting at least a "happy anniversary," when we arrived and gave them our name. Nothing. We had an early reservation and the room was half full -- despite this we waited for almost 10 minutes before someone came to take a drink order. When they did come, they asked us to order everything at once (appetizers, drinks, main course) etc. which seemed odd. At the end, we ordered coffee that never came. Despite this, the food was good and the building and surroundings absolutely gorgeous. As it was our first time, we're willing to give them a pass on the service and assume it was off due to Covid-19. We would consider giving them a second shot in the future and readers of this review should still give them a chance too as the pandemic has wreaked havoc on businesses and families everywhere.

We stayed at the Salamander Resort & Spa for a Girls Weekend to celebrate our 50th Birthdays since our original trip to Greece was cancelled due to Covid. We were highly recommended to go to the Goodstone Restaurant for our celebration. After we were seated, we were pretty much ignored for a while and had to finally ask for water. Not sure if they were short staffed or what, but for the prices they charge, I'd think we'd be taken care of. After declining the Tasting Menu, our waiter seemed annoyed. We did have a delicious a la carte meal. My friend brought a 50 year old bottle of wine to drink and we understood that we had to pay a corkage fee. Fine. The sommelier opened our wine and poured it for us. It took a while for him to warm up, but he finally did. Didn't see the restaurant during the day, but the property looks amazing!

Without question, this property and restaurant is 5*, from the grounds and the restaurant. How ever, we were very unimpressed with the service we personally received over dinner. The biggest turn off of the evening was the attitude and pretentiousness of the sommelier. A good sommelier is supposed to assist with the guests preferences pertaining to the best pairing. The attitude of the Sommelier here, Stephen, was very - if you don’t want to take my opinion why are you asking me, do what you want - right from the get go. It immediately put a damper on the evening and regretted asking him anything. To his credit, in the service department, he went to check on why our appetizers were taking WAY longer to be served than they should have. When we did receive our apps they were almost immediately cold because the air conditioning with blasting on the table. They must have been understaffed as the service was suffering. I asked to taste my wine pairing selection, but the waitress poured the entire glass - No big deal I guess. For the record I would have rather gone with my preference than what the sommelier recommended for the entrée. Credit to the sommelier again in the service department; he took full responsibility when the Sole dish was butchered; it was brought out cold despite the dish being warm. They took it back to heat it up and then reserved the same piece of fish… still cold… didn’t end up being enjoyed nor eaten. Food wise, the white asparagus was overcooked, the seared foie gras, although perfect, the platting of the dish was not particularly attractive. Lamb and veal entrées were wonderful. To make up for all the hiccups the sommelier offered us dessert wine. He poured it, didn’t bother to say anything about the wine itself and simply said “ I gave you dessert wine” and walked away, as if he was doing us a favour. Overall terrible experience versus what I’m sure they could have provided. Management needs to remind the sommelier Stephen that he’s there to assist patrons and that he isn’t better than anyone.

INCREDIBLE food!! This is the next French Laundry.! I’m absolutely stunned and in awe of the food here. As a foodie from New York who’s traveled the world and eaten at the top restaurants globally I must say I am floored at the creativity, complexity, simplicity and simply an unbelievable bouquet and arrangement of flavors. Absolutely floored Chef Hans is a food god Whatever you are, make the trip to middleburg and come here. It will be one of the most coveted restaurants in the US

We have been going to the restaurant for over 10 years for our anniversary and always bring a nice bottle from our wine cellar. The settling is wonderful, food always good. This year was the same except for pricing... $500+ for two and we brought our own $300+ bottle of wine. $150 for 4 oz of wagu, fine but this is not NYC and frankly a little fatty (venison was better) but the deal breaker is the new $65 corkage fee in the hills of VA. Never coming back...

We sincerely hope that we can continue to welcome you back for future visits. Genuine regards, Jess Soman General Manager jsoman@goodstone.com

Our dinner here got off to a bad start apparently because we didn't order the tasting menu. We were looked down upon the rest of the night and were somewhat ignored. The food was good but the negative vibe ruined it for me. I would probably return, maybe.

It pains me to give this review as the Goodstone has been one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions, a stunning Virginia hunt country setting, wonderful food and excellent service. We went for their Christmas Eve prix fix menu and although the food was up to standards it was overshadowed by subpar service…friendly but inattentive waitstaff, no explanation of the dishes, drinks and water not refilled, and just not the service expected when paying $200+ per person. I suspect the waitstaff were both undertrained not skilled in juggling the busy dining room. Unfortunately, when spending this type of $ and receiving this level of service, we will be hesitant to return.

The Conservatory, as this restaurant is now called, is not only the best in Middleburg, but it's one of the best in the DC area. Fabulous food made from fresh, local ingredients. Wonderful, friendly service. Beautiful surroundings and an excellent cocktail and wine list. What more could you ask for?

Went to celebrate the New Year with friends. The setting and lounge with its warm fireplace was an ideal meeting place as we waited for our friends to join us. The service was professional and courteous. We weren’t hurried and had a lovely leisurely dinner. The food was frankly outstanding. The wine selection is good but a little on the costly side. The drive to the Inn is a little challenging in the dark but I would love to return in the daylight and enjoy the scenery which must be awesome.

Dinner at Good Stone was very good. The escargot and salmon appetizers were delicious. The wine menu was varied. Things that kept it from being excellent: the size of the Dover sole, and infrequent checks by the wait staff. The staff was friendly but was slow in checking on us and in bringing wine for the main course.

Had booked a birthday reservation. A few days beforehand they cancelled due to training. Not sure if I will try to go again. They recommended Red Fox which is closed. Was a half hearted attempt.

For the prices and buildup from reviews, it was surprisingly ordinary. We were left feeling overcharged and poorly fed.
