We recently had brunch at The Goodstone. From the welcome, to the service, to the initial courses, to the dessert, everything was perfect. It is romantic, intimate, quiet, and the food is excellent. We will be coming back...What a find in Northern Virginia!

Excellent venue for a 40th anniversary. Great mix of choices. The fixed price menu had an appetizer, salad, entree and desert. We also stayed at the Inn in one of their cottages.
Should be Renamed Greatstone!
Other then a little hard to find - a sign in Middleburg would have been helpful - Goodstone is great. Outstanding food and service. Fairly priced for the quality of the dining experience. Wine list is great, even has some half bottles. Worthy of a special occasion or just a great place to go. I'm surprised it doesn't receive more press. Highly recommend.

Great dining experience. Nice, quaint atmosphere with extensive wine list.
Goodstone is my favorite restaurant in Northern VA. The menu is varied, cuisine is delicious and the service is excellent. The dining area is intimate and the setting is in the beautiful western Loudoun countryside.
We were very impressed with our dining experience and thought everything was excellent - both in terms of service and food. The wine list is exceptional and would normally be a bit intimidating, but the Sommelier simply asked us about our likes/dislikes and we provided a price range. He returned with a perfect bottle, which was at the lowest end of our price point. The food was served elegantly and we were surprised at the large portions. The foie gras was some of the best we've had in years. We are definitely going back to try their brunch, which sounded impressive. The restaurant itself is smaller than we had thought - but it turned out to be perfect, as it wasn't noisy and the servers could be quite attentive.

I went for a late Sunday brunch, and had the spinach salad with shrimp and grits. The food was Amazing! Everything was fresh and flavorful. This is a very lovely Inn in a beautiful setting. The staff is very friendly and efficient.
This restaurant was so special, so beautiful, with gourmet food and superb service. My husband and I were staying at the Salamander Inn, in Middleburg for our Anniversary and went to Goodstone for our anniversary dinner. This place was perfect! We'd recommend it highly.
You will be remiss if you do not eat here.
The grounds were beautifully manicured. The decor was classic and tasteful, the service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. For a French restaurant thew portions were larger than expected.

We've been here many times, consistently good food and service. This time, brought 95 yr old grandma for lunch. It was more about the drive, the time together and finding a quite place to sit and talk. What I particularly appreciated about this experience was that we weren't hungry and each ordered a small salad, but the service was just as impeccable as if we'd spent $500. So, kudos the the establishment for their professionalism.
Gorgeous spring day at this lovely inn. Staff very patient and attentive. We love to bring our out of town guests here...and they are usually impressed.

The service was friendly, professional and spot on. The food was fantastic. If you're looking for a special night out look no further.
beautiful beautiful setting. food was extraordinary. can't say enough wonderful things about this glorious place. make a reservation today!
So comfortable here
We are new to the area and love this spot! We have stayed on site for a few nights and the grounds are amazing. There is a 3-mile trail that surrounds the property. It is so beautiful. The bar is small and quaint, and there's a fireplace in the bar area with a comfy over-stuffed couch to relax with your cocktail before dinner. The food is a bit pricey but I think it's worth it. The Goodstone experience is a hard one to match!
Real gem, loved it.
Beautiful setting high on a hill. Causal elegant decor with beautiful views from large windows across farmland and trees. Perfect setting for any occasion. Excellent meal. Unique menu that did not disappoint.
Had Birthday dinner here. Osso Bucco was wonderful. Sole was good, but had better accompaniments (creamed spinach and crispy roasted potatoes). Strawberry cheesecake was divine.
Superior location and food
The atmosphere is wonderful. Beautiful views of the meadows and country landscape. The staff is very attentive and the food is great! It is a pleasure to dine at this restaurant.
SCENIC DAY TRIP TO UNSURPASSED LUNCH!
Passing through Aldie and Middleburg, down a beautiful, winding country lane in Virginia horse country to an "almost missed it" dark little sign for Stonegate Inn and Restaurant, our group of 4 was, for the second time, delighted with everything about the trip and the culinary experience. We chose the "Chef's Surprise" for a celebratory lunch ($50 each for 4 courses) and had no regrets. Every dish was superb, from the fresh mussels, fresh kale salad and perfectly cooked beef filet to the crème caramel. I could write pages about the seasonings and flavorings of each, but suffice it to say that each serving was perfectly proportioned and supremely satisfying. There was beautiful and tasteful music in the light-filled porch room surrounded by large arched windows over the rolling countryside. Our waiter, Jon, was delightful...helpful, friendly and funny, and timed our servings perfectly so we never felt rushed or languished.
Hunt Country Gem
Venture out a bit and come to this romantic and restored B&B with an unbelievable dining experience in an intimate space...offset with an old wall that survived a devastating fire, the setting overlooking the Middleburg Hunt Country is unmatched. Except for the food that is...try the mussels (disguised on the menu almost like a spanish dish) and order two due to how good they are and likely to be stolen by your table mates...superb wine list with variety of price points and excellent cocktails. This is a date place, whether first or hundred and first, and the convenient b&b nature allows for a brief walk to your room.
Splendid second visit
This was our second visit and certainly will not be our last. Service, food, and atmosphere were outstanding. If you are looking for elegant dining in a lovely quiet dining room this is the place for you!
LOVE THIS PLACE!!
Delicious, high quality food for an amazing price. I've been here twice now for the chef's choice 4-course lunch. This last lunch was incredible. We started with a mussels appetizer. The broth was sooo good - I couldn't get enough bread to dip into the broth. The salad was so tasty with yummy figs and candied pecans. The entree was a filet mignon and potato croquette. The meat was so tender, moist and flavorful. The potato croquette was perfectly crispy on the outside and flavor-packed on the inside. Dessert was a salted caramel flan with rice balls and a shortbread cookie. It was a perfect balance of sweet and salty. I can't wait to go back!!
Amazing food and amazing service. Highly recommend
This place is an amazing find. Great food and the service was exceptional. They even went out of their way to have roses on my table for Valentine's Day. Perfect example of fine dining without the hustle and bustle of being in down town DC. It is excluded and has a very romantic and personal environment.
I made a reservation for Feb 7 to celebrate my birthday with my family and 9-month old granddaughter. When I asked for a high chair, the waiter said that the did not have any. I said that I felt that was discriminatory against children and he said that they normally cater to couples. Even though the food was good, I will not go back. They should welcome children as well as adults.
Wonderfully tasteful & beautiful dining experience
This place is in the hills of Middleburg and is a wonderful restaurant in every fashion. The country French Cuisine is done immaculately and the restaurant is romantic in every way. Plus they have in my opinion (and I'm sure the Washingtonian Magazine's opinion) an award winning wine selection. That's why they have a sommelier. This place invigorates a relationship, might have helped save a marriage or two, and is all around one of the best restaurants in Northern Virginia or the state for that matter.
First Time Left Us Speechless
I must say that it is difficult for me to score any restaurant as outstanding, since I always rate restaurants relative to itself and the expectation, as opposed to other restaurants, but I must say that my first time at The Goodstone was beyond memorable. The lady and I had split the foie gras "French toast" and the chateaubriand. Dinner and the wine were quite delicious (we split a bottle of the Ken Wright Pinot Noir to go with the beef). And then, we finished off the night with a molten chocolate cake and an apple raisin cobbler, the latter a knockout. I cannot wait for the next special occasion to visit at this beautiful inn in equally beautiful Middleburg.
Wonderful location and superb food
My husband and I went here for my birthday and arrived early. Even though they would seat us early, we had custom cocktails at the nice bar in the warm reception lounge, formerly the carriage house. The entire staff are very friendly and welcoming. Our meal was superb and we had a corner window table as requested. The view is wooded rolling hills and a creek. If you don't want to drive home they have beautiful rooms in converted stables. We had been here once before and loved it, but this time it even exceeded our expectations.
One of my retirement goals is to have a truly great meal once per quarter, and this fits the bill. My lady friend and I enjoyed once of the best meals of our lives. The food was perfect, the atmosphere romantic, the service excellent, and everything went spectacularly well. You've helped me fulfill part of my bucket list.
The Goodstone Inn Restaurant
This was our third or fourth dinner at the Goodstone Inn and as always we enjoyed it immensely. It was a cold night in Middleburg, VA and it was a delight to walk into the Inn and be greeted by a roaring fire. The dinning room is an architectural delight with it's high ceilings and exposed beams. Dinner was delicious. I always have the Dover sole which was delicious as usual. My husband had the filet mignon and enjoyed it. An after dinner drink by the fire completed a wonderful evening. We'll be back and next time plan to stay at the Inn.

Steven was, once again, such an incredible host and gentleman. His wine masterful attention to detail and world class wine list always have us in awe. We can't wait to visit again when that beautiful pool is open. Cheers!
Outstanding Dining Experience
We went on a Saturday evening with friends to celebrate a birthday. From the beginning our visit was wonderful. Given the season, it was already dark by the time we sat down, so we couldn't enjoy the scenery from the restaurant. Instead, we sat in front of the huge fireplace. The hostess was a lot of fun from the moment we walked through the door to the time we left - not at all pretentious, which you might expect given the price point of the meal. We started with a bottle of the house prosecco, which was delicious. We all chose their 4 course prix fixe menu and ensured that we all chose different items so we could cover as much of the menu as possible. EVERYTHING was delicious. To go with dinner, we wanted to get a bottle of wine, but their wine menu was a little intimidating - so many choices. The sommelier was very helpful. I told him I wanted an Oregon Pinot Noir, gave him my price point, and he brought out a bottle that was fabulous. My husband and I ordered the chateaubriand, which the sommelier plated for us at the table. After dinner, two of us wanted a glass of madeira. Surprisingly, they had none, so the sommelier went in search of a replacement. While we were waiting to see what he would bring out, the hostess commented that when the sommelier's given a challenge he always exceeds the initial request. He did not disappoint; he brought out a sherry instead that was delicious. Yes, it was a very expensive dinner. But everything was perfect. I think it was well worth the price.
Scenic and Delicious
This secluded restaurant and inn is a find if you like unusual locations and fine food. It is quiet, the staff is first rate, as befits the heart of Virginia's horse country.
Highly Recommend Goodstone
I have gone for brunch 3 or 4 times now and have never been disappointed. From the first course to the third everything was so delicious for all in our group. The fixed-price brunch even included options for pescitarians. I ordered the eggs benedict and the first time it came out the white was almost as runny as the yellow. I sent it back and within just a few minutes a new plate came out and the food was cooked to perfection. I get eggs benedicts 99% of the time when I go out for brunch, so I've tasted more than my fair share. The Goodstone's was easily the best I've had. The building is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. There is a beautiful view onto farmland. Even in the winter, it was beautiful and serene to see. We found a shuffleboard platform, complete with discs and sticks, and we enjoyed a few games of shuffleboard before heading home.
New Years Eve prix fix. Great food- each and every course was great. And Stephen makes the best old Fashioneds.
