Noted by Conde Nast Traveler as a "culinary gem," The Umstead Hotel and Spa's signature restaurant Herons features the refined American cooking of Executive Chef Scott Crawford and Chef de Cuisine John Childers. The extensive 2500-bottle wine selection complements the sophisticated dining experience. Guests will enjoy the elegant setting and exquisite art collection indoors as well as dining on the terrace, with panoramic views of the lake. The Umstead's Bar is also available to local diners and hotel guests for a more casual experience. Herons, a Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond Restaurant, serves breakfast and lunch daily, weekend brunch and dinner Monday - Saturday.
I recently visited this restaurant as part of a mother-daughter-granddaughter annual tradition. We missed our existing reservation, and the manager of the restaurant informed us that he was doing his last lunch seating. He then said that it would be in our best interest to dine in the bar and lounge. The manager's tone and choice of words were very demeaning (don't tell me what's in my best interest). Also, we had my 2-year-old with us and she did not need to be at the bar! Everyone that was already seated in the restaurant, to put it frankly, did not look like anyone in my family and from my experience, we were made to feel unwelcomed.
Thanks to Matthew at the front desk, who was very friendly, I may visit the spa again, but NEVER the restaurant!!
I have to say that my dinner at herons this past week was one top meals I have ever had. The flavors are bright and the creative food is off the charts. Do yourself a favor and go now because soon enuff there will be a very long line at the door if they keep putting out food like I had. I have to say the Cheese & Apple salad was an amazing surprise of taste ad texture just amazing.
