  • Short drive out of Lexington but a very nice experience. Not the prettiest winery grounds but they seem to be improving. Our orders were fine, even though my wife's fish dish was a little dry. Over al...  more »

  • Worst dining experience ever. We went there for the 1st time to celebrate my Birthday. The service was so terrible, I believe our table was addressed twice the whole night. Once to order, and then to deliver food. We had to flag down the hostess to get our bill. To receive our food took over a hour! No one even came to check on us the entire time! To top off the worst dining experience, my husband got sick with food poisoning that started the minute we got home. Around midnight, it hit me! I have never had food poisoning before and let me tell you.. WORST Ever!!! I was sick for two days!!! I still haven't fully been able to enjoy a meal without hesitation. We will tell everyone of this horrific experience and will not go back!
  • Stopped on the way back to Cincinnati and so glad we did. We walked in and were immediately met by Adam at the bar. He made us feel very welcome and we sat at the bar and had some fine whites and reds. We also ordered the sausage and cheese plate (highly recommend that you do this as it was delicious) with their homemade crackers. We bought a couple bottles to take with us and can't wait to stop there again next time we are in the area. Don't pass this place if you have the time!
  • Went last night for our anniversary, and had a fantastic experience. The cheese and sausage plate were wonderful, the mussels were so tender they could have been used as a spread, and the scallops were excellent - however it was the service that blew me away. I genuinely felt like a guy wearing khaki shorts and an un-tucked plaid shirt was more concerned about our level of experience than servers at some of the "fancier" places in town where they wear ties & vests, and have assistants that refill your water after ever sip. He was courteous, genuine, never came across as a salesman. Every course was timed perfectly, and he left us alone without ever making us feel like we were being neglected. We've been to JF quite a few times. As my foodie wife puts it, "it's food how its supposed to be".
  • Wine tasting before dinner. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Drinks are reasonable and food was fantastic. Great experience.
  • A gem in Lexington. Easily the best local winery, and if you're sneering "Kentucky wine?," get your butt in here and try some. These guys have repeatedly won medals at recognized wine competitions across the country. Yes, with 40+ wineries across the state now, we have plenty of bubble gum wine if that's your thing, but there are a few proper wineries and this is the leader of the pack. Amazing bistro attached with a James Beard award winning chef. Locally sourced ingredients. Fancy food without the stuffy atmosphere. Stop in for a cheese & meat plate with a wine tasting, or for a full meal, you won't be disappointed. Excellent patio and great happy hour deals. Just outside of Lexington, but worth the drive.
