Fodor's Review

Talk about relaxing: that's exactly what you'll want to do in this splendidly restored mansion, built in 1820 by John Coe for his bride, Ravinia. Enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda, then sink into a plush chairs in the dining room, where the original French wallpaper, depicting the Seven Wonders of the World, still fills viewers with awe. Start with pumpkin-and-mascarpone ravioli or Gorgonzola-stuffed artichoke hearts, then try the grilled red snapper with pineapple pico de gallo or a lobster potpie. Lighter fare can be ordered in the upstairs lounge. For an unforgettable, romantic evening, reserve the cupola—it seats only two.
