This restaurant was closed despite my making a reservation and receiving a confirmation email. It was confusing and disappointing.
They are out of business not sure why still booking.
The restaurant is closed. They did not bother to notify me. I flew in from out of town and went there and it was shut down. Really rude that they didn't reach out to Opentable and/or to customers who had bookings.
Good bye old friend, you will be greatly missed
Awesome experience! The food was outstanding and the service was great! We each started with the soup special which was not only presented well but was very tasty. The lamb curry entree was equally special with wonderful vegetables and tasty lamb. The portions were so large, we were unable to order dessert. We will miss the Honey Pot when they close in early March.
One of the best places on the planet, and sadly it's moving to another universe
This was wonderful. My boyfriend and I have been wanting to eat here for about 2 years, and we heard they were closing, so we decided to save our money to wat here as a late Valentine's date. It's a little loud and you sit close to other diners, but it's super nice and the decor is pretty. I got the pork chops with the grits andr redeye gravy. WONDERFUL. The grits were nice and rich, and paired with the gravy, was perfect. Then we shared the molten chocolate cake with raspberry coulis. It was maybe 20% cake and 80% chocolate (that's andr good thing!) So rich and lovely. Our waited knew everything there was to know andndbout the food and treated us well (I've noticed that sometimes, because we're both pretty young, that waiters in more upscale restaurants treat us like we're stupid. This place did not!) Overall, the food, service, and atmosphere were great. I wish they weren't closing!
Not your typicl fair. some may like. No tea no sodas. Felt like we were paying to be surrounded by high society in a dressed up eatery. Tables too close and there was not even an illusion of privacy or intimacy.
Great spot and wonderful fresh food, so sorry they are closing their doors.
Always great food.
We love this restaurant; wish we'd found it long ago. The food is unusual for this area, sometimes surprising, and always delicious
We came in to celebrate an 8 year anniversary dinner together and thought the ambiance and quality of food would be worth trying the Honey Pot for. It was alright. Ambiance was great and the service was as well. The food was not as good as we thought it'd be considering how much it cost. There were a lot of extras that came on each plate that seemed to be more for decor. They were edible, but did not blend well with the key ingredients on the plate. There also weren't a lot of main entree options, I think there were something like 5? And then the appetizer or "small plate" menu was nearly 2x the amount and very pricey as well. The perceived value of the food does not match up with how much the Honey Pot priced each item at. Still worth trying for people looking to try unconventional food in the Winston-Salem area.
Winsten-Salem people- wake up and expand your pallets. This is an amazing restaurant that would fare well in the City of Chicago- why it's closing In march has me puzzled. Amazing, creative , food- ambiance, farm to table, hip not trendy, for foodies and a big addition to the town of Winston Salem.
I wish them well and hope to see them in Raleigh where I live or Apex??!
Honey Pot has a stellar food reputation. After attempting to have dinner here numerous times, we finally landed a reservation. The restaurant is quite small and is sadly closing in March due to low business during the week. We have several thoughts about why this has happened. Our first idea was that there was a certain froideur when we sat that was slightly off-putting to a casual diner. This "air" seemed to pervade the entire dinner such as comments from the sommelier about the lack of "lesser" wines being available as they went quickly and were not being reordered due to the closing. It basically forced my husband to order a much more expensive wine. The prices seemed a little high but possibly reasonable for the various meal descriptions, but two of the highly touted dishes did not add up to their recommendation. Our foodie friends ordered chicken and lobster and were disappointed in the chicken but loved the lobster (request for drawn butter was never fulfilled however.) My sea bass was quite nice but my husband's lamb was a small portion for the price. The foie gras and pork rind starters were fantastic. This menu might be too fancy and expensive for many downtown diners and lacks a single beef dish other than bison. The niche it has could be redone with more affordable dishes, less pretension, and perhaps a bigger or more accessible location. Advertising and specials during the week could have also helped. Hate to see it go.
Best Restaurant in Winston-Salem!!
wonderful service and the food was absolutely amazing!!!!! Will definitely be coming back!!!
Erin and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at 🍯Honey Pot🍯 !!!! The staff knowing it was a special occasion for us, they greeted us with cozy, romantic corner table with complimentary champagne! The service was impeccable and the food was mouth watering fantastic!!! They made the evening super special for us !!!
The Honey Pot never disappoints and the Farm-to-Fork concept is clearly evident in the quality of their ingredients as well as the amazing flavors in the food. Outstanding place to dine.
The food we ordered - two appetizers and four entrees - was all very good. We really enjoyed the duck poutine and the bison with root vegetables. The portion sizes were generous (I mention because we had seen reviews to the contrary), and the service was fine. However, I felt the prices were a bit high and the specialty cocktails underwhelming.
This was out first time there and our experience was phenomenal. Our server, Josh explained in great detail all of the menu items and suggested great choices. The staff was attentive but not in a disturbing way. Checked on our table at just the right times. I would highly recommend The Honey Pot for your next adult dinner.
Great new additions to the menu. Love the crab cakes.
This is my second time and I love more than before. Every was great and well knowledgeable.
This place is always great! the menu changes with the season and I had never been disappointed.
Excellent food; prompt, informative and courteous service; relatively quiet - enough to have a regular conversation; comfortable ambiance. An enjoyable dining experience.
Brilliant service, phenomenal food, great ambiance.
Good food but way overpriced. Space is small. Would only go back for Special occasion...not a daily dining place.
Exceptional service combined with outstanding food. Our server gave great drink pairing recommendations and was very knowledgeable about the menu. The entire staff was very friendly and made a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Definitely a place to try in downtown Winston-Salem!
Great food, tasty and excellent presentation. The pork chops were great as were the arancini appetizers. All the desserts were very good and the service as excellent. I guess we really like this place.
Honey Pot was amazing. The food was fantastic! The service was superb and the bar tenders mix drinks were not only delicious but beautiful. The entire evening was a beautiful balance of casual luxury.
Our meal was fantastic! The presentation was beautiful and it was delicious. However, Suzie, who took our meal orders, was less than attentive and we had to ask the maitre d to send her to our table to take our orders. She was not friendly, never smiled and seemed to care less about our table. The remaining staff were fabulous; the young man who took our drink orders, the servers and the maitre d.
I would highly recommend this restaurant in spite of Suzie.
I fear the Honey Pot seriously disappointed me on my most recent visit, falling to the fate of Winston-Salem restaurants...guaranteed inconsistency. Service was chaotic, confused and clueless. We ordered an appetizer that never ordered (but did receive one "on the house" which was completely not what we wanted), we more than twice almost received food and drinks belonging to another table despite a plethora of servers wandering about in the restaurant. And the food? The chicken, to be fair, was delicious. But it sat next to a pile of white rice, much of it clumped together over two pieces of squash...one well cooked and the other which kept me thinking I ought to remove the rind. I had taken a friend there as a special "treat" and he later told me he found his experience presumptuous, disappointing and not worth repeating. As an aside, if management cut the staff in half and assigned the wait staff tables, I suspect diners would have an infinitely better experience.
The best restaurant in Winston-Salem!!!
I didn't drink, but I started with the poutine - elevated bar nosh. French fries in a sauce of duck bacon and cheese. Too much for one and a little on the sloppy side but very tasty. Would have gone great with beer. My friend began with the charcuterie/cheese plate that we both could have licked clean. Honeycomb balanced the divinely done fatty meat that burst on the tongue. The black grouper special came with truffle risotto. After the duck fries, what was I thinking? Double starch did me in, but it was well worth it. My friend managed to nearly clean her pork chop and red cabbage plate. She's more of a taster than an eater, but had no trouble with these generous servings. I went home with a doggie dish. We were too stuffed to try the honey creme brulee. Next time, when we return for the lobster dish.
It's a small gem that fills fast. It's a little loud at capacity. Reservations are must.
We had a fantastic meal. My guest who is from the San Francisco Bay area was even impressed by the quality and creativity of the meal. The crudo was beautiful, as was the carrot soup and both had beautiful and unique flavor combinations.
This was my third time going to the Honey Pot since its opened, and it has consistently gotten better each time I've gone. This restaurant has definitely turned into one of Winston's best! My parents came into town and we all loved what we had. I had the Farmer's Plate, which is their vegetarian option - it was delicious. They are constantly changing up the menu, which never disappointments. The service was OK, but it won't keep me from going back!
Love this place. Been twice and each of those meals have been some of my favorite of all-time. Nice little gem that you wouldn't expect to find in Winston. Great for a date.
The food was great though it took a little while. A bit overpriced but nice environment and very tasty entrees.
Great concept. Very poor execution on our visit. Sat for 20 mins before being greeted by server. Food was average at best, certainly a let down for the price. Pork chop was severely overcooked, lobster was "me". Cool space, but we would never even think about going back. A real shame.
Great night with the family. Thank you
Excellent food. We have never had a bad meal at Honey Pog
