It hurts my heart to write a negative review about my favorite restaurant, but it must be done. JF ran Mardi Gras specials advertised from 2/24-2/26. We excitedly made reservations for Sunday evening at 5:30. Not a single one of the specials was available. Not the gumbo, not the BBQ shrimp, not the Surf&Turf. Nor did they have the only... More

I had the flank steak and Cheryl had the stuffed pork. Both amazing. Perfect seasoning and combination of meals. I also had the French onion soup and it was very good. We have some of our best Lexington meals when we eat here.

My wife (who grew up only a short distance from the winery) and I enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's Day meal at the bistro. The food was delicious, the staff was attentive and the wine, as always, was perfect.

My Husband and I went to Jean Farris for an early Valentines Day dinner 2/11/17. We had a reservation at 7:00pm. We arrived early (6:15)to enjoy a glass of wine and a cheese plate at the bar. We ordered our drinks and cheese and got our drinks quickly. They were delicious and we enjoyed our conversation. We never got our... More

We went to Jean Farris on Saturday Feb 11 to beat the Valentine's Day crush of the 14th. My husband had the lobster bisque which had huge chunks of lobster. I had the strawberry salad, which was full of strawberries adding to the "red theme" of the holiday. We both had the Beef Wellington special and it was truly special... More

Beautiful place! Roasted Romaine Ceasar salad is very good. Roasted beet salad was ok, beets were undercooked and crunchy. Ordered the Flank Steak and it was tough but the roasted vegetables served with it was great. We had reservations for a party of 8 and one couple couldn't come on the day of the reservation due to an illness and... More

We took some local friends here as they had been for a wine tasting and enjoyed it. The place was empty except for a few people at the bar. The waiter was good and pleasant. The food was fairly average compared to restaurants in San Diego- but priced like a high end ($32 per entre w/no side dish) - to... More

My friends and I visited Jean Farris for the first time to enjoy a few glasses of wine to kick off a bachelorette weekend. The wine (specifically the Riesling) was DELICIOUS so I insisted that my husband and I return for dinner and we were not disappointed! The food was incredible. I ordered the filet with came with a bordelaise... More

The atmosphere is pretty cute, and I imagine eating on the enclosed patio would be fabulous during daylight hours, so that you could view the grounds. We ate there when dark, and found the patio too chilly and too brightly lit. I would suggest an inside booth in those cases. The food was pretty average - good, but not really... More

Jean Farris Winery is located on a very picturesque central Kentucky road, full of horse farms. The tasting bar is very elegant. The wines were mostly good, we particularly loved a couple of the reds. However, the service was weird. The lady waiting on us routinely insulted us, and though she was joking, it was strange. I can take a... More

We sit in the heart of all that is great, with a view that is timeless. We have taken these products, crafted and grown from across the state and region to create the wine, food, spirits, and cocktails that have made the name Jean Farris so much more than just a brand. For us Jean Farris is the wine, but it is at home on a table filled with friends. It's home is Kentucky.
