The Honey Pot Ratings and Reviews

This was our second time dining at the Honey Pot, and for the second time we weren't as impressed as we hoped to be. For our first visit, service was subpar. We had dirty, empty dishes sitting on our table for way too long. We were hoping for a better experience for the second try. Service was better, though are server seemed to rush us with the menu. (If you're paying $30 a plate, it's nice to just have some time to enjoy each other's company and the ambience). I ordered the lamb, which I specified to be cooked medium-rare to medium. It arrived fully mid-well, so I sent it back. I didn't want my husband's food to get cold, so he ate and I watched. The re-fired lamb did come out perfectly pink and was delicious. The food was very good, but we're still missing that perfect evening at the honey pot.

Excellent food and cocktails.it is definitely a great restaurant for foodies and those who like farm-to-table style. Service was excellent. It falls in the pricey side of WS. The wine list and perhaps some of the entrees were overpriced.

My wife and I visited the Honey pot for the first time and were blown away with our evening. We both ordered the 4 course Chef's choice tasting menu with wine and beverage pairing and were met with delicious and interesting dishes we had never seen before in our lives, except for the steak. Each course was paired with a delicious beverage and we both agreed that we would not have ever tried any of the choices the Chef came up with but would not have changed a thing. Truly a great meal and a wonderful experience. We will be going back.

One of the top restaurants in area. You forget your in Winston-Salem. Trendy ambiance with consistently good food and friendly service. Bar is great place to get a drink and do an appetizer. Great wine selection. One of my favorite places in this town.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. They have a great cocktail and wine selection. The sweetbreads app was amazing! The portions were perfect. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice dinner out. They do offer indoor and outdoor seating.
Excellent food, but disappointing service
My husband and I have dined at the The Honey Pot twice now and the food has been excellent both times. However, the service seems to be a little lacking. It was rather slow during our first visit, but during this most recent visit, the host finally came by to take our drink order apologizing that the waitress was tied up with a large table. Lucky for us that we had had plenty of time to decide on our food order, so the host was able to take that at the same time. Near the end of the meal, I ordered another drink and after waiting 15 minutes or more, I finally caught the attention of another waitress and cancelled it. At that point we had finished our meal and were feeling ignored. There was no offer of dessert and the waitress had not been by for several minutes. The drinks were very good but over-priced. It was a little disconcerting however, when the same waitress brought a complimentary dessert to the table next to us while we couldn't seem to get a drink we were paying for.

It was wonderful! I noted that it was our wedding anniversary and our table was ready with free champagne. So thoughtful. We also tasted the Schnozzberry mocktail which was my absolute favorite. The food was perfect-tasty, cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. When it came time for dessert, we almost had no room but ate the chocolate mousse anyway. It was definitely a magical night.

This place was recommended to us from a coworker. I thought the food was ok, but definitely overpriced! Drinks were also overpriced. We ordered the Thai sausage appetizer, I eat these often and theirs tasted nothing like what it's supposed to. The lamb was very mushy. I was expecting a rack of lamb with the bone in, especially with the $28 price tag.

We went a couple of times while our daughter was at Wake and each time the food was superb. The first time we did the chef's tasting menu for the table and this time we ordered off the menu. Everything was very good.
Neat atmosphere decent limited food
Neat atmosphere however the inability to substitute sides make some choices a bit awkward or pricey. My wife, we went for her birthday, got the quail as she heard good things about the mac and cheese. I got the beef, which was more like medallions. Good but I'm not a big green veggie guy and would have liked the mac and cheese myself. $31 for five or six beef medallions and some potatoes, although tasty is a bit steep. The service was ok, could have been a bit more attentive but did seem to care.
Will we return? Maybe, with a better selection which I WILL check on-line beforehand.

I've been several times and love that they work with local farmers. The Farmer's Plate was wonderful and I appreciate the kitchen putting together a cheese plate for dessert - I much prefer that to a sweet dessert!
A great experience
My wife and I had the chef's tasting menu for the night: a sort of truffled pea gazpacho (for lack of better terms) amuse bouche, a sausage plate that was drawing some heavy japanese influences, an asparagus + poached eg + house cured duck prosciutto, a great steak dish (seriously I could eat that every day), and a super tasty chocolate mousse. Eric (the somm) made a great wine suggestion, a super chewy, dry spanish red that paired really well with the different dishes of the night.
Service was tight but unobtrusive (nothing worse than a waiter trying awkwardly to force conversation when you're on a date), we wanted for nothing the whole night. The meal's pacing was great too, we never felt rushed, having enough time to pause and talk and sip some wine in the pauses between courses, without that awkward moment where you wonder where your food has wandered off to.
This place is a gem.
Hidden gem in Winston
From the extensive wine list to the ever-changing menu of unique and delicious selections, the Honey Pot is certainly a great evening out. With two Somms on staff, you sure to always get a great recommendation for pairings. Book early, it's not a large place, but it certainly is one of the best in Winston-Salem.

Megan was an excellent server and answered all of my party's questions and was respectful when we weren't ready to order. The menu items were far and away the most excellent of any menu I've seen from the resto thus far. The pea soup was on point; the sweetbread small plate was a table favorite and the surprise dosh of hummus was excellent as well. To be honest, the crostini were the best part as the hummus had too much garnish and not enough substance but was still excellent, nevertheless. My entree of lamb was bar none my favorite part of all the courses. The carrots, so tender; The lamb, well-prepared. The pound cake was a table hit, as were the curry doughnuts. There were no missteps and it was a perfect evening to celebrate my 35th birthday. I couldn't have asked for a better series of events surrounding our culinary experience. I will forever relish the time and care all of the staff took of my party.
Excellent but a bit pricy
The catfish was amazing. It was paired perfectly with a curry pesto and a delicious bed of veggies and quinoa. My date had Mac and cheese with his quail and loved it too. Would recommend for a date or special occasion, but kinda pricy. Meal for two ended up at about $60... My only critique is that our server was not super attentative or personal. There we two other servers that were helping her out it seemed that were extremely nice and obviously passionate about food.

The waiter was very helpful and attentive. The meal started get with the small plates. I thought the wine by the glass menu was very good. Unfortunately the main courses and desert were not very good. You could not taste the bison as there were too many things going on. In the future we will just go for wine and appetizers.
Very unique menu. Their version of Okon ...
Very unique menu. Their version of Okonomiyaki, a traditional Hiroshima dish, was quite good!! All items tastefully done and service was terrific! Menu changes every 2-3 months as I recall the server saying. Most ingredients locally sourced. Fantastic!
