I feel sorry for the locals if this is the best food around. The owner was extremely rude and argued with us when my wife sent the Filet Mignon back as it was not properly prepared, she asked for medium and got well, the second try came out RAW. I had the Trout and found it with out flavor it certainly was not worth the price. We each had a glass of wine, a salad and I had Trout, the wife left hungry and it cost $45. I recommend stopping for the view then drive down to Berkeley Springs and try Tari's far better food and service, and they are very nice. By the way, we both had more than enough to eat this time and it cost $47.
and the word is getting out quickly! (Recommend that you make reservations for a weekend dinner date.)
This is a lovingly run restaurant with fresh food, a decent wine selection and homemade desserts. The service is down-home friendly, not stuffy at all.
The view from the main dining room is incredible - I understand one of National Geographic's 10 best in the nation.
Once you get your breath back from peering over the peak at the incredible view of the Cacapon River you won't be disappointed by the food. It's good, fresh, and nicely served. The owners try to only use fresh food in season and it's worth the effort. Now they have Sunday brunch which we've tried once but we plan on going back. Music too! Standard brunch fare with a few nice surprises. Check it out!
Best food I had in town! Yummy Sunday Brunch buffet- worth every penny. Great atmosphere and staffing. The ladies who run/own this place have really accomplished something special. Make a reservation- it is an intimate space- warm and charming.
First time to Berkeley Springs and found Panorama at the Peak an unexpected and welcome surprise. Having lived in San Francisco, dining regularly in New York ... this very appealing restaurant could compete successfully in either Big Food City. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed and cared for by Patti, one of the owners. She and her partner as well as the chef, Scott, have a well demonstrated interest in sustainable agriculture, utilising organic, locally grown and biodynamic suppliers. They provide a tangible boost to local sustainable farming. Scott, I might add, learned to cook from the Julia Child cookbooks and TV shows, beginning at age 12!
The spinach salad and butternut squash soup were as fine as in any Michelin-rated French restaurant (minus the butter fat). The soup was a thick puree' of squash and apples. Butternut ravioli were airy-light and delicate, but this vegan had to sample the superb shepherd's pie, made with delectable, delicate lamb, seasoned with garam masala and thyme. Oh my, definitely worth falling off the vegan wagon.
The wine selection is well thought out and features reasonably priced, diverse and skillfully crafted wines, including organic selections. After all, anyone can order an expensive wine. It takes love and knowledge to buy well-priced, good wines.
Finally, dessert offers a wide variety of selections, including a few not on the menu.
Be sure to ask!
When we returned to our hotel, the staff commented that this restaurant was a favourite for locals and their special occasions.
We can't wait to come back.
