There are great restaurants in Virginia. Les Cochons d’Or clearly is among them. Beautiful surroundings. World-class wines. We have a new best place to go now. We will plan our visits to make sure Cochons is open!

Tripadvisor shows this restaurant as very expensive. While prices in all restaurants have increased along with high inflation over the past year+, we found this restaurant to be reasonably priced compared to many. We also found the quality of our meal to be outstanding, as...was the service. So there was excellent value. While not a fancy place, the restaurant was very clean with nice artwork and a very pleasant atmosphere. I would note that we went on a Tuesday, while several other local restaurants, including some at the Omni Resort, were closed on Monday and Tuesday, and some even on Wednesday. Admittedly, had others been open, we probably would not have gone to this restaurant. However, it was a fortunate turn of events for us and we were quite pleased with the outcome.More

It started out well...drinks were good, apps tasty...but then the hour wait for our 1st and then black charred inedible eye of rib as our third was so disappointing.

Patrick was our server. Martini with stuffed olives even though they don't regularly offer them. All entrees were perfect. Onion Soup delightful. Deckle entre great. The short ribs were off the hook. Patrick is a world traverler and a great server.

Food was very tasty. Portions were lacking. My issue is that it took us 25 minutes from being seated to meet our server. We were given water and bread from the host but we still waited around a long time because she wouldnt take any...orders. After we ordered he would only acknowledge us every 15 mins or so. At the end we asked for a fountain drink and waited 15 mins and he seen helping other guests and ignoring us. We had to pull another server to the side to help us. When he came to collect our plates he didn’t apologize or even acknowledge what happened, he was very detached. For this price range, this is seriously unacceptable, even if it is “busy season”. 25 minutes from being seated to meet our server.

Wow! We had a party of 8 for an anniversary family dinner. The service was flawless and the food was delicious beyond words. Our server, Chip, was fantastic. We stayed at The Homestead for 4 nights and this was by far our best meal. Would...highly recommend the pork shank and short ribs but everyone loved their dinner. Don’t miss out on this place if you are in the area. (And they are a coffee shop by day)More

This restaurant is a treasure. We return to The Homestead once or twice every year, and part of the reason is to visit LCDO. The food and service is excellent, and the wine is exceptional. We will see you soon.

This cozy little restaurant is a must if your are staying in Hot Springs. We had the French onion soup which ranks as one of the best we've ever had in our life. The bread offering was diverse and wonderful. My wife had mussels and...I had the salmon and both were excellently prepared. Aside from the food, the service provide by Joseph made my evening. After learning where we were from it developed into a conversation about baseball. Joseph, a Reds and Oriole fan, was blown away with the number of baseball HOF I have met as well as had conversations with. All in all a very enjoyable evening.More

We recently had dinner at LCDO, which is only a couple of blocks from The Homestead. We had a late reservation. Prior to our scheduled time, the restaurant called to say that we could be seated earlier if we desired. That was very nice and...we went about 30 minutes early. LCDO is a small restaurant with a limited menu; however, everything we had was excellent. I enjoyed the onion soup and tomato salad. I rarely order chicken at restaurants but decided to do it based on some of the prior reviews. It was outstanding. Perfectly crisp and salty skin over moist and tender meat. The mushrooms and tomato accompanied it very well. My wife enjoyed her steak as well. Our server was very nice and efficient. Prices are on par with the quality of food. We look forward to returning. On another note, I enjoyed the owner responses to some of the negative reviews. They are some of the best I have read. It would make sense that a restaurant named for a pig wouldn't have much by way of vegetarian! It's nice to see a local business doing well.More

This restaurant lived up to all the positives we had read about them and none of the negatives. Thanks to the reviewer who praised the chicken entree as it was wonderful. We had a bottle of excellent wine from an equally excellent list that was...less in cost than we have paid elsewhere for similar quality, although one can spend three figures if one chooses. As we came on our wedding anniversary, we were compted our dessert, which was a nice touch. The staff was highly professional and it was clear to us that they are happy to be working there as opposed to the feelings of another reviewer. A wonderful part of a special night for us!More
