Not completely impressed. For those looking for a complete meal, you may have to order twice - portions are European, so be advised. Service was excellent, so no problems there. Presentation was excellent as well - almost to the point that one would need culinary training to understand how to eat each serving. Overall taste was interesting, new and good. I guess the biggest disappointment was the overall cost. With 20% tip, ran me $85 for a pinch of Smoked Trout, a palm-full of Heirloom Tomatoes, and a half serving of Butter Poached Lobster with a very conservative portion of wine (by the glass). Would not recommend to those looking for a decent sized meal. Sorry.
If your looking for innovative cuisine, elegant service, and exceptional flavor combinations and presentation, Warfields meets the mark. We chose to do a tasting menu and were delighted with all the courses.
Incredible restaurant!! Comparable to dining out in NYC or Toronto! Absolutely the finest in Creative Modern Cuisine!! The food and service is top shelf. Would recommend it to anyone that enjoys fine dining!!
Had dinner there for the first time last night. It might have been the best meal we have ever had. We shared a Heirloom Tomatoes course; “Caprese Salad”, Gazpacho, Fresh Mozzarella Textures, 25 Year Old Balsamic. The presentation was beautiful, the mozzarella was very fresh, and each presentation of heirloom tomatoes was beautifully executed. 25 year old balsamic vinegar has an amazing taste, by the way. After this there was a delightful amuse-bouche consisting of a half of an heirloom cherry tomato topped with a tiny piece of rendered pork rind. I always find that salt enhances the flavor of tomatoes greatly and this combination perfectly captured that in a single bite. Usually bread is not a noteworthy component of a review, but the bread was absolutely delicious. Warfields in Clifton Springs, the progenitor of this restaurant, has an excellent bakery and lends their crusty bread to High Point. Delicious on its own and perfect for sopping up anything that doesn't make it on the fork. For our main courses: My dining partner had Butter Poached Lobster with Baby Carrots, Smithfield Ham, Popcorn Froth. The lobster was absolutely perfectly prepared. Lobster meat can be tough, this was soft and buttery, as promised. Various vegetables in solid and puree form accompanied the dish and the popcorn foam was an interesting addition. I had Duck Roasted Breast, Cipollinis, Foie Gras Sausage, Stone Fruit Molasses. The duck, which can also be tough, was perfectly prepared to my order (medium-medium rare). Each piece was delicious, the Foie Gras sausage was incredible and brought a completely different favor perspective to the dish. The cipollinis were a tasty accompaniment. The entire meal was beautifully executed culinary excellence. The dessert was an indescribable haze of pistachio flavored ice cream and other treats, along with some carrot cake and some other delicious tastes. At that point, I was in a culinary fugue state ordinarily only achieved after watching several hours of the Food Channel. The service, from greeting to departure, was gold standard. Helpful, but not intrusive, attentive, but not hovering, friendly, but not looking to be our bffs. When my dining partner went to the restroom, one of the two-waiter team took her napkin, neatly folded it, and placed it on the back of her chair. A small gesture reflecting the overall attention to detail in the service. The total of the meal was 100.00, including tip. A bargain, trust me. This would be a 200.00 meal in Manhattan and it wouldn't be any better. Go, and enjoy.
