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!!
