Our food was just ok. I wanted it to be great. Pretty place. Good service. Hostess not so friendly.
Absolutely perfect lunch to celebrate our anniversary. We had the white and red sample flight in order to taste a variety of Barboursville's wines. The staff was extremely accommodating of my wife's dietary needs, even bringing gluten-free crackers in lieu of bread. They surprised us with an anniversary dessert, beautifully presented and also dairy and gluten free to suit our needs. Thanks for making our visit to Barboursville special. Each plate was gorgeous and perfectly prepared.
We've been going to this restaurant and vineyard for over 10 yrs, loved it everytime and always looking forward to next visit. Very professional friendly staff, excellent food paired with local wines, if you want. Quaint pretty & quiet place you can enjoy the view of open wine field as well.
Excellent in every respect. Attentive/pleasant service, tasteful dining room, had a table with french windows opening on to a beautiful view of the vineyards, interesting/varied menu, had perfectly prepared guinea hen.
Great setting and a wonderful well developed and excellent menu with lots of variety. Top quality delivery and as expected excellent wines
Having lived in Northern Italy, this restaurant was the closest to being there of the Italian restaurants visited in the last 10+ years.
Very enjoyable birthday celebration with a friend. Loud people at the next table. Servers seemed stretched to cover the tables but were friendly and efficient. Nice touch on the birthday menus and the dessert presentation.
It’s a great experience! Good food and wine in a great setting!
We had a wonderful big birthday celebration. The first time we’d all been together in over two years. As always it was delightful. It’s like getting in your car and driving to Europe.
Felt like having dinner in an Italian villa! Lovely, intimate restaurant with a great selection of wines and a small but delicious menu. Would highly recommend!
Everytime we are driving to Charlottesville we stop for lunch @ Palladio (and buy wine @ Barboursville). Excellent hospitality & food. Octagon pairings are a great way to try 3 vintages. Hope to return soon.
Palladio NEVER disappoints! From the greeting by Alessandro to the innovative menu and the always outstanding wines our group of 4 ladies was delighted with all! The new Nascent paired beautifully with the lobster and scallion medallions!
Gorgeous setting and location. Definitely a treat. Outstanding and inventive food. Excellent wine.
Great lunch and experience. Thank you.
I took my boyfriend here for our first time together, and WOW is all I can say. The food was phenomenal, the wine pairings were a delight, and the environment was serene and lovely. Thank you so much for making our experience a memorable one. We will return!
A wonderful place for lunch and dinner. The beauty of the room exceeded the quality of the food.
Elegant place Excellent service Delicious food Highly recommend for that special celebration or if you want to spoil yourself.
This is a lovely setting with excellent food. Service was excellent and food delicious. Three courses plus desert for lunch was too much food. Perhaps the portions should be a little smaller for lunch. We skipped dinner.
Outstanding food and service the room decor was charming a d the wine very good.
Absolutely a place to visit loved the atmosphere and everyone with their beautiful smiles!!
The restaurant was amazing. We were seated immediately and given a complimentary Prosecco. Our chilled veal carpaccio was outstanding and the lamb was perfectly cooked. A wonderful afternoon!
Amazing 4 course meal with wine flight. A must do for any food and wine enthusiasts!
Well prepared and presented dishes. An additional up charge on some entrees seems inappropriate
Palladio is a wonderful restaurant at Barboursville Vineyards. We had the recommended wine pairings with the appetizers, first courses, and second courses, and they were so good we bought some bottles to take home. The food was excellent, and the portion sizes are small enough to sample all of the courses (although we ended up sharing one dessert).
Other than a rather long wait when first seated to have water brought, service was excellent.
The food is quite good and we thoroughly enjoyed our first two courses (mussels in Vermentino and veal ravioli in brown butter sauce) but the lobster and scallop medallions were a bit dry from, I suspect, sitting under a heat lamp. The espresso at the end of the meal was one of the best I've ever had anywhere (including Italy). I definitely see a return trip in our future.
We chose Palladio for lunch to be able to eat while tasting the great Barboursville wine. Our pasta was good.
Our server was rude and ignored us completely so much so that we complained to the winery personnel.
It looked lovely, but we had asked for outdoor seating, never heard back from them to say they didn't have any. Drove all the way there just to find out our only option was to sit inside close to other diners. We asked to take it to go and sit out at picnic table at the property but they wouldn't do that. And they didnt help us find any other options at the property's other locations. I get that spaces have limitations, but it is a pandemic and some people arent comfortable with indoor dining. I think they could have been more accommodating/flexible with finding a solution for us that felt safe to everyone.
We had an excellent time with our visiting friends. The experience felt like Tuscany! Food was outstanding and service matched as well. We are coming back and reserved one of the fall special events. Thanks to the Palladio team.
A very good restaurant to go to for a great meal and/or special occasion.
We enjoyed our meal at Palladio. The food was amazing- loved how they started off with some Prosecco. The bread was good... thought it was a bit strange that we had to find our own salt and pepper, olive oil and vinegar. In fact, we felt the hospitality was very lacking. We were never greeted by our "waiter." He simply came to the table after a long while and said, "Do you have any questions?" Not even- Good evening? Or welcome? Very odd. That being said- all our food and wine was delicious. We shared the Insalata Mista con Formaggio Blu, Pere e Noci Tostate, and it was yummy. I had the Tortino di Quinoa e Zucchine, which was really unique and good. My husband had the Ravioli del Plin, and it was delicious as well. We also shared the brussel sprouts. Food was amazing- just didn't feel welcome persay.
5 Star ambience. Only food complaint was ragout was partially burnt. Mushroom pasta was excellent. Felt a light red wine would have been a better pairing than the white that was recommended. Portions were generous,so we would recommend sharing. An elegant lunch in an elegant setting .
Also enjoyed the sparking wine pairing in the Library before lunch. One might also consider a multi wine tasting flight with their light culinary offerings.
A most gracious experience, Tom and Anne
Always enjoy being at Paladios. Service is wonderful. Food excellent. Look forward to our next visit.
Palladio is one of my favorite places anywhere for lunch or dinner. Impeccably sourced local ingredients (some from the estate itself), house-made pastas, a regional Italian menu, Barboursville’s remarkable wines, professional but warm service, and a vineyard setting —there are only things to like here.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance. It was a great lunch treat.
The best experience always!!!
We celebrated our anniversary and it was perfect. The wine pairings were delicious. Service was great. Not inexpensive but I would highly recommend for a special occasion.
A delicious meal & wonderful service.. The staff take care of the little details to make us feel extra-special.
Excellent pairing of exquisite food and wonderful wine
The gentleman who checked us in was incredibly haughty and seemed inconvenienced that we were there. He was frankly quite rude and given the current pandemic did not seem at all flexible about accommodating a member of the party who was concerned about the covid protocols. Felt like they didn’t actually want any guests. The person who was our sever, was great and the food was excellent.
I LOVE Palladio. A 5-star place for lunch is hard to find. Palladio fits the bill perfectly. Lovely ambiance, delicious food, wine perfectly matched, and superb service. One of my favorite places!
