We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn which is across the parking lot from this restaurant. From reading the reviews, and due to convenience, we decided on this place for dinner.
Upon entering, we were greeted warmly by the two hostesses. I am a member of Open Table so I had made a reservation through them. But, I believe this place, in general, takes reservations which I would highly recommend. That was key for us because we were traveling south and it was a Saturday which is a very popular evening to go out to dinner. We were tired travelers and would have had some difficulty with a wait. The restaurant was full when we arrived for our 6:15 reservation. We were seated right away and the waitress came for our drink orders immediately. The menu was wonderful with many different things to choose from. I ordered a New York strip steak and my husband ordered the Mixed Grill. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered (medium rare). Both entrees came with a choice of salad and a side. The food was well prepared and delicious! Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. The price was reasonable considering what was included with the entrees. The atmosphere was very nice and we enjoyed sitting in one of their comfortable booths.
This is a very popular place for good reasons so it is wise to make a reservation. We will definitely return when we travel through Charlottesville in the Spring! I highly recommend Shadwell’s if you want to enjoy a wonderful dinner!! Don’t miss it!!
