Wildflowers at Turning Stone Ratings and Reviews
Our first time there for Valentine's Day! The staff was extra helpful (maybe a little too helpful?), it was a quiet, cozy and intimate dining experience. The staff also gave all women dining tonight roses which was a nice surprise, and of course the food was superb. You get what you pay for here so don't shy away if it looks a tad too pricy. Well worth it!
The atmosphere and host/hostess were fantastic. The waitresses (front and back) were professional and courteous. The main issue in our experience was the extensive wait between ordering and receiving our food. It was well over 70 minutes before our food arrived despite the restaurant being at least half empty. The food was unique and full of flavor. The portions were not huge, but adequate. The manager did provide after dinner drinks to compensate for the extensive wait time.
Wildflowers is a very nice place for a special occasion. The staff really take care of you and treat you like you are a VIP. Yes, it is pricey, but definitely worth it for a birthday or anniversary. The nitro ice cream made tableside is so unique (and delicious!).
I love it here. Probably my 6th time. The menu changes seasonally so it's fun to try different times of the year. Atmosphere is quiet, service is impeccable, food is delicious. Don't be in a hurry though, we're usually there between 1-1/2 to 2 hours. It's very relaxing and they're in no hurry for you to leave.
Our breakfast of eggs benedict was expertly prepared and delicious. Side of applewood smoked bacon was incredibly tasty and the texture was almost like eating bacon butter! Service was friendly and gracious. Well worth a visit anytime you want a special treat!
Wildflowers continues to impress on a variety of levels. From the moment you are welcomed to the friendly and educated staff you are in for a delicious experience. We love the menu as well as the presentation. They have recently added some great options to their menu. If you are an ice cream connoisseur than be sure to try the nitro ice cream prepared table side. Not only entertaining to watch but deletable as well.
A wonderful choice for that special moment or date. The menu and wine list offered enough variety to please almost anyone, the food was nothing short of spectacular and the service was outstanding (thank you Jeffrey). I would definitely return for another special meal!
I thought long and hard before I decided to write this review. I read reviews online and most were very good to excellent. So, I hesitated to buck that trend. This is the fourth time I've had dinner at Wildflowers. Three of the visits were around the holidays (including this one). The fourth was in the summer.
Recently, Wildlowers "re-invented" itself to be a bit less formal and provide a quicker dining experience. This is the first time where after the meal I decided that I don't really feel a need to return there. The service was excellent, so none of this is based on the job our waitress did. Rather, it was a combination of factors. Certainly, the food is very good and if you like presentation, Wildflowers is excellent. But, I think the price is too high for what you get.
What really helped solidify my view is that I found (after biting it) that a piece of broken glass was among the items on our cheese plate. The glass did NOT come from anything on our table. While this could happen in any kitchen and is disturbing no matter where it happens, I thought that it could have been handled differently by the management. Our waitress apologized profusely and clearly she was thrown by this happening. The man (manager) who came over after the waitress told him was apologetic and said that he would take the cheese platter off of our bill (that's a no-brainer in my opinion). But, that was it. He didn't check back. He didn't offer dessert and coffee. Nothing. I would have expected more from ANY restaurant had this happened; certainly one of Wildflowers' caliber.
There are many dining options at the Turning Stone. In fact, there are some that are significantly less expensive and still very good. I will definitely return to dine at Turning Stone again. However, the next time it will not be at Wildflowers.
Although we've been to Wildflowers many times, we always enjoy our return visit. Even though the food is fabulous, we mainly return because of the presentation of the courses. It is like viewing an art show. Also, the waiter whose first name is Jeff is the best at his job that we've ever experienced. He, alone, makes the event worthwhile!
This is a beautiful restaurant in The Lodge at Turning Stone. It is romantic and comfortable. Great for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. The service is excellent and the food is superb. Dress code is everything from business casual to dressy; it's a mixed crowd at this restaurant. I have never been disappointed with the service or the food or the vibe at Wildflowers. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The minute we arrived we were treated special. We were given the booth we wanted with a receptionist, two wait staff and a manager who were attentive to us all evening. The chef prepared a special appetizer at no cost, a plate of candies at no cost, and two small cakes to take with us at no cost. The music was pefectly suited for the serene atmosphere. We chose a bottle of wine that was suited to our budget. The food was exquisite tasting. For those who want quantity this is not the place but for taste and delicasies this is the right choice.
This restaurant was lovely and serene for breakfast on Sunday morning. It was a limited menu but the options were enough where I easily found multiple things I would have liked to have. The servers were very attentive without being overly so and it was a great all-around experience. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
From the first to the last the service, food and ambiance was impeccable. The flavors and presentation amazed and satisfied. The selections were out of the ordinary and always exquisite. I would definitely take any business, family member or friend to delight and treat. Can't wait for the new menu and next surprising delicacy.
Food was great, localy sourced, delicious.
I went.there for bfast, and server advice us right away the coffee machine is broken. Kind of goes with bfast, right.
She forgot bacon, even after she specifically asked me if I want it.
But the ambiance is great, loved it, will be back.
always wonderful, considerate memorable service, extra dining touches of grace and taste with memorable amuse bouche and intermezzo, tableside preparation of Caesar salad, tableside coffee ice cream, and a satisfying wine list. Very special, I hope it never ends.
Food was above average and well-executed . Reservation was made with advance notice that we were under a time-constraint that we reiterated to the server. There was no discernible change in behavior or service and we were late for our event.
Wait staff was delightful, but kitchen was very slow to deliver food. Pork belly, Kobe short rib and Wildflower salad were awesome. Scallop appetizer was a terrible disappointment as there was no sear on them . Dover sole entree was inedible and was sent back to the kitchen. Breakfast here is much better than dinner.
I went with my Fiance for my first time for fun I am not used to eating fancy food I'm a very picky guy and very basic the waitress was amazing at explaining and breaking it down to me in English and I enjoyed the food very much it was amazing I would love to go again
We were there 6 weeks ago but then returned on the weekend and ate there twice. Jeffery was again our server and treated us like God. Remembered what we drink ,went the extra mile on a couple of requests and even surprised us with a sample of something we didn't order but had considered ordering . Always top notch service and food. Thanks Jeffrey and WIldflowers. Bill & Deb
i had brunch at Wildflowers with my sister, for a special sisters' weekend getaway. The food was amazing, the menu was extensive, and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Wildflowers for Sunday brunch. I had mouth-watering banana nut french toast with homemade whipped cream, and my sister had her favorite eggs benedict. It is quiet, and the view of the grounds is lovely. The Lodge building is a great way to get away from the noise and smoke of the casino, so for a quiet, delicious meal, I love it.
Every time we've been here it's been better than the time before. Friendly wait staff, sommelier gave great suggestions, imaginative menu.
The pork belly w/smoke was mind blowing! Can't get enough.
We are still talking about the experience 4 days later.
So excellent; the food; the plating creativity; the service; the ambiance. This is by far a 5 out of 5 star winner. They give you the extra apps and clean-your-pallet add-ons and scrumptious chocolates to wrap-up a culinary masterpiece of a meal. Recommend this place wholeheartedly. We celebrated three 60th birthdays with a whole cake served for dessert that we shared with the entire dining room. Must get the made-at-your table ceasar salad and ice cream. Breakfast is also super-special.
For such an expensive dining experience, the food doesn't really live up to the ambiance at all. I found the food completely mediocre which is annoying when it's so costly. The waitstaff was very friendly although not particularly on top of things. There were a couple of times we had to ask them for an item twice. Again, the expectation of the restaurant is so high that the food and service really matter. Also there is no restroom in the restaurant so you have to go across the hotel lobby. I would not go back.
Everything was wonderful and we were so surpised on what a great find.
The food and service were a 10, along with the view and we had very romantic evening there.
Thank you for a great time, we had breakfast twice there and was lucky enough to have dinner there one night. We will be back.
We highly recommend Wildflowers, you will not be disappointed.
We have eaten at Wildflowers many times during our trips to Turning Stone and in fact ate there three nights in a row back in late July. Always great but even better this time due to our Server Jeffrey. He was thorough but not overbearing. Very helpful, very accommodating and a great sense of humour. Food was outstanding and some interesting dishes . Heading back to Turning Stone again in early September and already have two dinners booked at Wildflowers.
Thanks from Bill and Deb
My husband and I are returning customers. The first time we visited was to celebrate my husband's birthday. The quiet yet comfortable atmosphere was exactly what we preferred. The cocktail menu was impressive. I had the lychee martini and it was the BEST I've ever tasted. My husband loved their flat-iron steak. My duck breast was delicious too--the skin was crispy yet the meat was very tender. We shared a chocolate mousse cake for dessert.
A side note: they print your name on the menu! This was a neat touch.
