    We have been to a couple Messina Hof locations, but this was our first time at the Harvest Green location. We went in the middle of the day on the Friday after Thanksgiving and it was not busy at all. Very chill and laid back atmosphere. We sat in the restaraunt area and had the chicken sandwich and surf and turf burger off the brunch menu. Both were great. Our server let us do a tasting even though it states on the tasting menu that tastings are only served in the lounge area and at the bar. They were generous 2 oz pours and was a decent selection to choose from. We went home with a couple bottles. It was worth the hour triip. I wish were a little closer to visit more often

    Mushroom and also the Bruschetta starters were great. 3 our of 4 of our party had the pork chop and all agreed very good. 1 of our party had the fish and she was happy with it. Several folks around us has the Land and Sea Burger, it looked really good and I will likely try that next time I'm there. The wine selections and pairings were good too. For desert 2 of us had the port and Ice Cream Sundae it was perfect small size to finish off meal.

    We were a party of 8 and were seated in a private room which was perfect. Our server could not have been more attentive; kept our water glasses full and was knowledgeable about the menu. Mimosas were offered and were delicious. For our wine drinkers samples were offered before committing to a glass. The food was delicious with plenty of choices to suit everyone! Will definitely return!

    Gorgeous place with great vibe for girls night out. They have wines for everyone (yes, sweet red included!) and food to match. And Meghan, our server, was the BEST!! She gave us recommendations on food and wine, and we love all of them! We'll definitely be back soon!

    Fabulous service by Charlotte. We met the new manager today too, Juan. This location has seen lots of turnover; however, that has not had a negative effect on the quality of service. Some menu items were updated and offer suggestions on which wine may compliment that food item. It can get noisy due to the cement floor and high ceilings. We were there on a Friday before the dinner crowd. Love having this local winery close by as our one of our favorite wineries.

    Love Mesina Hof. Food and wine are reasonably priced. Great location. Love the patio area. Our service in this occasion was poor - he ghosted us, didn't check on us, no water refill, just unbothered by us.

    No one was at the front door to greet us upon arrival. The lady who finally got to us turned out to also be out server. She seemed uninformed about the menu; maybe she was new to the job, but for this visit she was the face of the restaurant. Not an impressive start. We ordered an appetizer that was tasty, but did not have all the ingredients that were stated on the menu (no figs, no pecans), but in fact had jalapeno peppers and two full roasted garlic cloves which were not in the menu description. We pointed this out to the server, who said she would advise the chef. The discrepancy was never addressed by management or the chef. We ordered a salad with a vinagarette dressing. The salad was literally drenched in dressing and tasted like pure vinegar..not edible. My plate was delivered to the table a full 5 minutes before my wife's plate arrived. All and all, a disappointing experience.

    We had a lovely evening for my birthday. The roasted goat cheese appetizer was yum, followed by the chicken and gnocchi dish which was equally delightful. We chose to take the brownie dessert home with us and enjoyed it later. The wine was a blend they were featuring and we enjoyed it enough that we bought a bottle for the house. All in all, a great time.

    My friend and I celebrated our birthdays at Messina and everything was great! Our server was Megan and she was awesome - friendly, attentive, took our birthday pic for us, she made a great wine recommendation for me as I don't like too dry or too sweet. I'm a vegetarian and the margherita pizza was so delicious! Too much for me to eat for lunch so I took home leftovers. We'll be back for sure!

    My wife loves the shrimp and grits. My Land and Sea burger was overcooked. The service was not what you would expect. In fairness, our server left work because she was feeling sick. The manager gave us a free dessert because he recognized the service was not great.

    Our waitress “Ariel” didn’t even introduce herself. Just asked what did we want to drink… the hostess seemed snippy and tired to have to check and see if a table was available outside (even though it was requested in the reservation) there were 8 tables open 6 were dirty and stayed dirty for almost an hour. What was supposed to be a wonderful day of day drinking with friends celebrating fall, it turned into an event where had to ask a manager for a sever who seems like they wanted to be there. We left after 1 bottle.. not sure we will go back.

    Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery & KitchenResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you for taking time to leave us a review. We're so sorry to hear your experience went poorly. Hospitality is the forefront of our training, it's disappointing to hear several team members didn't embody this. We try our hardest to accommodate all requests around seating, but sometimes are unable to do so. We're sorry to hear the patio was in such a state for the duration of your visit. We're working diligently to correct this. Again, thank you for letting us know about your experience.

    We made a reservation to celebrate my son's birthday. This is the third time that we celebrated our family member's special occasion but I guess the Chef wasn't the same from the last time we visited. I was also a little bit disappointed with our waiter who wasn't really attentive to us. He didn't check if we still need anything else or if we need more water. He was more attentive to those VIP people in the closed room I guess. I asked if he has a lighter to lit the candle for the cake, he declined and left. He didn't even put an effort to find a way to help us out. My son ended up just pretending blowing the candle for picture sake. I guess it's time for our family to support other nearby restaurant just like this.

    Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery & KitchenResponded on October 6, 2022Ms. Mangahis- Thank you for taking time to let us know about your experience. We're sorry to hear your son's birthday didn't go the way you envisioned. Our servers work hard to ensure no guest is treated any differently than any other, and we can assure you your server was working overtime to ensure that this did not happen. If you have any specific feedback, our General Manager would love to speak with you, and can be reached at (346) 292-9463. Again, thank you for your feedback.

    I had the most beautiful experience for my birthday. My party was given a private room that was intimate and beautiful. Servers Deangelo & Francisco were the most patient and thoroughly detailed when it came to pairing wines to meals. That were even nice enough to take group photos and I’m so grateful I booked this beautiful space for my dinner.

    My mom, sister and I shared the goat cheese appetizer - it was good and the bottle of reisling was delicious. Then we shared the pork chop and the chicken brian entrees. Both meats were dry and not real flavorful. If we go there again, we will not choose those entrees again. The waiter was great, the service was wonderful. But, it was just a so-so meal.

We are thrilled to hear your service was excellent and your server was attentive and informative. We were disappointed to hear your food did not hit the mark. We've followed up with the culinary team and are working toward improving our offerings for guests to enjoy. We are always happy to replace any items you are unhappy with during your experience! Please don't hesitate to ask for a manager when dining in. Again, thank you for your review.

    Atmosphere was nice..but things seemed a little off. First of all, our hostess sat us in the small side section right next to a family when the entire restaurant was open. Seemed odd.. My guest ordered coffee—for brunch-and it wasn’t available immediately and restaurant had no cream. Odd again. Server was over extended and rarely saw us. Odd again I wanted to love it but it was just ok. Good price was high for the amount of food you received

    So close, bust just not quite there for me. The dining room is nice but they need to turn down the lighting for dinner. I felt like we were sitting under bright white LED spotlights - terrible for dinner ambiance at 8 pm. The courses came out of order and the wait staff didn’t know who ordered what - there were only two of us. It wasn’t crowded at all and plenty off staff so no excuses. The goat cheese appetizer and snapper main course were both over cooked. I can put up with bad ambiance or service for good food or even vice versa but when all three Miss the mark, it’s a strike out. It’s a shame because the place has lots of potential. Maybe we just caught them on an off night. Either way, I sincerely hope we they can turn it around.

    Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery & KitchenResponded on September 1, 2022Thank you for sharing your experience. The cool toned lights are designed to give a more open feel between our spaces, so guests feel connected throughout. You shouldn't have been served overcooked food, or been served out of order. Great hospitality is always our goal, and we're sorry you didn't receive that this night. We have communicated to staff what level of hospitality is expected and hope you'll return to see us deliver on delicious food, great wine, and excellent customer service.
