    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.

    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.

    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.

    Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery & KitchenResponded on September 19, 2022Hello Ms. Debbie- Thank you so much for your review. 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

    As always, the food, staff and of course, WINE was perfect. Only change I would like is to have a lunch menu or dinner start earlier? Got there too early for dinner and filled up on appetizers before dinner was available. But, gotta say... the Shrimp and Grits IS great!!!

    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.

    Large selection of excellent wines. Very reasonable pricing of wine by the glass or bottle. The food was really good. Our group had pizza, cheese board and the burger which were all very tasty. Our server was excellent and very friendly. He provided information about the winery and provided great wine recommendations. We will definitely return!

    My husband and I have been wanting to dine here for some time now and finally did! It was wonderful! We enjoyed & split the goat cheese w/ pecans and bread appetizer, the vanilla strawberry and more salad and split the Swordfish for our main course & brownie dessert. Big portions! Will absolutely dine here again.

    The place had many empty tables. A waitress came to our table to take the empty chair we had. When asked why she did not take from one of the empty tables, she said those tables have reservations. Well so did my table. She even said the table next to us that was empty was for 4. Well....3 people sat at that table. She finally brought the chair back and said "nevermind, the table did not need it after all". The burger ordered was brought to the table wrong - TWICE. My pizza was barely warm. I have seen a decrease in customer service and accuracy of orders every time I go to Messina Hof. Doubt I will be back.

    Service was a little slow at the beginning despite only a few customers and a lot of staff. Once they appeared they were pleasant and helpful. Thanks to Bryan and Kelsey for taking care of us. Surprised at the limited food offerings, but the food was excellent. We had the fritto misto and charcuterie, then the Douglas pizza. Of course there were plenty of wine selections.

    All was excellent. A little disappointed that brunch menu only on Saturday though. Also noticed that gratuity was automatic? We only had 5 people and looking back at last several visits, it was automatic even on small groups and we didn't notice and added additional tip. We love ya, but perhaps there is a glitch?

    Nice summer evening on the patio, but the service was seriously lacking. The food was cold when it was eventually served about an hour after ordering. I ordered the pork chop and it was extremely dry. Our bill had an extra drink added. We only had 3 total, so easy to spot. This happened last time we were there too, so this concerns me. I really used to enjoy coming to the restaurant. The food and service used to be much better. I hope they can improve it to their previously higher standards.

    I’m the wine was very good. The service was excellent. However, my friends and I ordered the NY Strip special and we didn’t like it at all. It was not seasoned well and the cut was not good. The steak was not juicy. It really was disappointing because I anticipated it to be better.

    We have eaten at this restaurant several times and enjoyed our dining experience. However, last evening our experience due to poor service left a lot to be desired. Our waiter was the worst. He did not follow through on any of our requests. We asked for bread and butter. The butter never was brought to our table. Our water glasses were not refilled until we got ready to leave. The wrong dessert was delivered to our table. Finally, the waiter placed our check on the table and never said anything. We won’t be back.
