    My neighbor and I wanted to do a worry free Thanksgiving and decided on a place where we had never been before. Lovely, laid back ambiance to please most anyone. The food was served in perfectly timed increments. Staff was very friendly and appropriate. Plentiful amounts of excellent fare and the best Kentucky Mule I’ve ever had! Jean Farris introduced herself to us and was an exceptional hostess. The wine alone is well worth the gorgeous drive !!

    To be fair, we were there just before closing on a Sunday night. The food was good. Good portions. Deserts were definitely a bit off. Friendly staff.

    Sunday night date night at Jean Farris. After a very windy Saturday, Sunday was beautiful. As usual, Rob made us some awesome peach jalapeño margaritas - our current favorite. One of us had a glass of Cab Sav with dinner and it was up to its usual very good standards. The filet was cooked to perfection, the mushroom risotto was amazing and the Swiss chard with apples was a nice addition. We will definitely be back and let our friends know to give Jean Farris a try.

    First went here for a friends rehearsal dinner. After the experience I knew I had to bring my fiancee. Needless to say the second time around didn’t disappoint either. We both left Happy and completely satisfied with our little date night. Can’t wait to bring some of my family members next time!

    We love Sundays at Jean Farris. Our cocktails were as good as always and the wine we had with dinner was also very good. The filet entree and risotto entree were outstanding. Our dining partners said the French onion soup was the best they’d had in quite a long time. We will definitely be back.

    Our server was inattentive and discombobulated. We waited close to an hour to order entrees. Members of our party went to the bar to order their own drinks since the waiter abandoned us for so long. We were told the wrong vegetables as the seasonal vegetables. The shrimp and grits served did not match the description in the menu. We’ve been here several times and had lovely service before so this was clearly an off night. Luckily the wine and food were delicious.

    What a gem! We were impressed from start to finish. Shout out on the smoked old fashion - if you like an old fashioned it is a must try! The lobster parpadel was excellent. Both the bourbon lava cake and mini peanut butter pie were the perfect end to our meals. We would come back in a heartbeat

    The wine happy hour was amazing. You can do a "tasting" reasonably with full pours. The steak and lobster dishes were excellent. The onion soup was amazing. The staff is so sweet & helpful. Our only complaint was the shrimp & grits dish was unusually small compared to the other dishes we ordered, but tasted great. Wonderful place...highly recommended!

    We were visiting the area from out of state. We dined outside in the tent. Only one of 3 fire pits was working. Fortunately it was warm enough. The server, daughter of the owners, was knowledgeable and helpful. The French onion soup was served with a bun on top instead of croutons and cheese. The food was very under seasoned. The biscuit board was mediocre. Disappointing to say the least.

    This out of the way winery restaurant was a great find. The people were so nice and if the weather had been nicer I could see that sitting outside enjoying wine and food would be a fabulous experience. We opted for the sunroom which still had a beautiful view. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because the room was a little stark. We had a cheese board with a selection of some truly great cheeses. Then we had French onion soup and mushroom risotto. The risotto came with grilled veggies on top that were delicious. I ate every bite. The soup is what you would expect, gooey cheese and lots of onions and crunchy bread. It was up there with the best I’ve had. We loved this restaurant and would definitely go back

    It was far to long since we had been to Jean-Farris but will be back very soon! The staff were as attentive, accommodating and delightful as ever. After enjoying delicious artisanal cocktails with JF’s signature charcuterie spread, we enjoyed an amazing truffle, wild mushroom risotto and pork loin. The chocolate lava cake is decadent!

    From out of town and looking for a unique farm to table. Great service and good food. We had the pork loving and the chicken for dinner. Extremely tasty cheese plate and French onion soup for starter. My husband did not care for his white wine flight but my classic red was very tasty.
