Diner Reviews
  • "Dan's is a welcome change from the noisy, frenetic vibe of so many restaurants. We loved the experience of sitting in a beautifully preserved inn, with white tablecloths and a quiet ambience. The food was superb, and extremely well prepared. As a vegetarian, I inquired about options. The waitress, who was excellent, friendly but not overbearing, did not have to check with the chef, and thankfully did not offer what so many restaurants do under similar requests - offer pasta with tired vegetables. The chef prepared a plate of fresh vegetables, cooked to perfection, along with my fabulous mushroom ravioli. My wife had an expertly prepared duck. All the sides are treats in themselves. When in Reading or Lancaster, try this place out."

  • "My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary and found out about Dan's from my mother in law who is well educated in fine dining! We were quite comfortable with her choice. The hostess gave us two choices as to where we would like to be seated as opposed to being told what they had available. We chose the room with the fireplace as it was warm and had great ambiance. The waitress was very attentive and we were very happy with our food choices."

  • "We eat here a few times a year and are never disappointed. Love the garden room. Warmly greeted and shown to a lovely table. Outstanding waitress (Kim). Great salads and fantastic filet mignon (always). Thanks for a lovely evening!"

  • "We had a lovely dinner at Dan's! The food was delicious with the chef perfectly meeting our special requests! We had two seniors at our table who use walkers and the restaurant staff was most amenable and helpful in helping them get seated. The noise level was also just right with soft background noise but nothing that prohibited easy conversation. I particularly loved the historic setting in an old inn, elegantly lit with soft lighting and providing a most delightful backdrop to the fantastic food. Our party of six all ordered different things and all were very satisfied with their meal. Wait staff was available and attentive without being intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return!"

  • "Dining at Dans is always a wonderful experiene. The menu is imaginative and executed to perfection.The daily specials are interesting and a temptation, as well. Try the Roasted Beet salad to start. It's great. One of us had the Aspagagus Soup with Crabmeat to start was very happy. Our party had the Rack of Lamb, Scallops and Veal Chop special. We were all pleased."

  • "food was good, service was good, but overall just ok. nothing special. There wasn't anything wrong, and we were rather surprised that the chef was able to accommodate vegans, but it just didn't WOW us. sorry."

  • "We used to go here when I was a kid for special occasions. That was prior to the current ownership. For this trip I took my mom out for her birthday and the quality of the food and service was on par with my childhood experiences. Everything was excellent. There wasn't a single morsel left on our plates. I would definitely go back here."

  • "The restaurant was in an older on which have it so much charm and character. The service was excellent, the staff was friendly and always near if you needed anything. We both enjoyed the restaurant being so quiet (rarely do we get to eat in peace and quiet anymore...3 little kiddos! Lol). The food was incredible. I ordered the filet of beef and whipped potatoes. The filet was cooked to perfection, very juicy and tender. The whipped potatoes were amazing. Dessert...I recommend the chocolate soufflé, delicious! Everything was worth the price. Our bill was $108 for 2 people for a three course dinner which is very reasonable for the quality you receive here. I highly recommend Dan's and I definitely will be going back!"

  • "It was my wife's birthday so we and another couple headed to Dans at Green Hills. We were all so pleased with the food and the service. Great wine list, fabulous food including fois gras, rack of lamb to die for and a heavenly dessert of bread pudding rounded out the evening. They were so kind as to comp us a glass of champagne to toast my wife's birthday. I have been there before but nothing compares to this meal. F"

  • "My husband and I brought his mother to Dan's for Thanksgiving dinner. We had the pumpkin bisque, the turkey dinner and pumpkin pie. All three were delicious. The chef even started us with a tasty amuse bouche. Service was impeccable and both owners were on site helping the staff and making sure all was in order. We were never rushed and were able to linger after dinner as well. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I found Dan's by accident, looking for a fine dining experience in or nearby Reading, and was very pleasantly surprised by Dan's. Their reviews over the years have been mixed, so I gave them a shot. Gorgeous old building, diverse menu, and everything's prepared to perfection -- we enjoyed their duck ravioli appetizer very much. The classy touch of a free amuse bouche was over the top. The ONLY real criticism I have is around the decor... you're in a 200 year old building. What's with the plastic flowers in alcoves along the wall??? You can do better! The service was outstanding, bordering on intrusive, but never crossing that line (fully four different people asked us about our meal and experience during the course of the evening)."

  • "A coworker recommend for us to check out Dan's At Green Hills Restaurant. I thought it was going to be all hype, but it lived up to everything he said. The food was over the top every single detail was displayed.. I ordered the NY strip steak. The steak was cooked to perfection and the truffle butter was mouthwatering delicious. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the risotto was unbelievably wonderful. The service was attentive. The server was absolutely friendly. The restaurant has so much history inside and it looks amazing. If you need a place to take your spouse for a special night or for a business event, make sure you go here. No other place in Reading, PA can compare."

  • "My experience at Dans was one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences I have ever had. From the food to the atmosphere and service, everything was outstanding. I live in the DC area and Dans can hold their own with the best of our restaurants. Well worth the visit and I would recommend Dans to anyone who expects the best."
