  • we enjoyed our food and wine so much but the wait was waaay tooooo long. We were told the chef was backed up and the wait made the dinner less then perfect. I don't know if this was a one time thing b...  read more »
  • What a nice spot sort of in the middle of nowhere. We visited during a very hot and humid day, but it was quite nice sitting outside under the tree. Instead of standing at a bar, this vineyard has you...  read more »
  • Have been going to Sharpe Hill Vineyard for many years. It remains our favorite spot to take guests and meet friends. We love Sunday afternoon seating at 3:30. We go early to enjoy the beauty, a glass...  read more »
  • Two sides to Sharpe Hill: The restaurant is a fine dining experience with food that is out of this world. The Vineyard is a treat for anyone that enjoys wine. Take a walk to the top of the hill and see into three states.
  • Nice place to visit and hang out for the afternoon. Great people there too.
  • I've been several times to Sharpe Hill, and I've yet to have a bad experience. To me the dining room is at it's best on a spring or autumn day when it's warm enough to open the windows and the ''door'' -- the restaurant is in a loft room. The seating is an eclectic mix of padded arm chairs and wooden seats. The seating is limited, and more conducive to very small groups. You will be very close to another table, but I've never had an issue there with being bothered by anyone. It's not a place that lends itself to rowdy conversation, but it's not dead silent either. I haven't had an issue with the food at Sharpe Hill. Their presentation is usually lovely, and it's really the type of restaurant where you should plan to spend a while to enjoy an Appetizer, a Meal and a Dessert with your coffee. The servers have always been polite, and are open to talking with you. You can usually see the same server the second time you visit, as they don't have a lot of change. My grandparents visit this place often, and they always tell me how their server asked about their grandchildren and remembers details from their previous visits. This is part of the service you are tipping for. I've always enjoyed going there. My husband is not as fond. You will pay "Pomfret prices" for your meal. The theme of the restaurant is more high class country kitsch than high class modern restaurant. However it doesn't feel faded or tacky. The access to the restaurant is a semi-steep set of stairs. If you have severe trouble navigating stairs (wheelchair access, etc) there is no alternate entrance. In the summer they do have an open courtyard, usually for wine tastings, and may be able to serve your party there.
  • Friendly people, beautiful location, decent wines (not spectacular, but decent), and rustic atmosphere inside the place. I have yet to hit the restaurant, but that'll be next (hopefully soon).
  • This is one of our favorite restaurants. Their food is delicious with the wood burned stove flavor; the setting and d├ęcor is charming and the owners have such attention to detail from dishes chosen for everything served and the way the food is plated to the little herbs that accompany even the doggy bags. We recommend the Delmonico Steak and ask for the Bearnaise Sauce on the side. Also the Jamaican chicken and shrimp creole are delicious. And if you can sit by the fire that is the best. You really feel like you have been someplace special after a visit to Sharp Hill.
