    Wanted to advise you that one member of our dinner party was sorely disappointed in his meal...totally. The other three diners enjoyed their food, the ambiance and the engaging waiter. We will visit again and hope that this one experience was an aberration. We were repeat customers at Diamonds when it was on Kent Street and trust the Zucchetti family to offer a perfect dining experience.

    Four of us went for dinner Saturday night - I had the pork chop w/broccoli rave stuffing yum! My husband's friends wife had gnocchi in a pink sauce which was also excellent. My husband had stuffed scallops which for me were a tad overcooked and tasted a little old. His friend had a shrimp dish in which the shrimp were left with the shells and heads on - the server didn't do a good job disclosing this for if he had, my husband's friend would not have ordered it. Would come here again, but I'd steer clear of seafood dishes.

    Everything about our experience was perfect. Setting to service to the food itself, you simply could not ask for better. The staff was outstanding. This was not my first time here, so I knew what I was in for. We were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and could not have asked for a more perfect dinning setting for such an occasion. We are a very easy going couple and do not ask for extra attention or need to be pampered but it is certainly a nice feeling when you are made to feel like the most important guests in a restaurant full of customers. The food, just no words. It was all outstanding.

    Normally, an outstanding experience food and service. The service was not at the usual excellent level and ditto with the food. Asked for pasta instead of potato under the lobster appetizer. However, way too much sauce. The chef wasn't looking at the dish and adjusting accordingly.

    We used to go to Diamond's when they were on Kent St. in Chambersburg. In fact, we had both our kids' high school graduation dinners in the private dining room there. Followed them when they were on Rt. 29 (briefly) and were glad to see them open in Pennington. All the food was great; my daughter and I had the soft shell crabs which were done perfectly. My grandkids had gnocchi in marinara sauce (specially ordered with only one sauce) which they finished off. Two of us had the veal and lobster combo; also great. Definitely recommend.

    I dined here for lunch with a coworker and we were blown away! The restaurant is tucked away into a shopping center so we didn't know what to expect. The food was incredible! We had a hard time narrowing down what we wanted to try and ended up sharing several of the daily special appetizer platters - stuffed artichokes, caprese platter, and spinach bread. It was heaven and we can't wait to go back again soon! Also, service was great and reasonably quick for a workday lunch break. Great atmosphere, would also be great for a date night.

    Anthony and Tommy are restaurant legends. They hit the mark with this rendition of Diamonds. The food is fantastic and the wine list is very good. Service is what you would expect from these two brothers,they know how to treat people. Loved the veal and lobster. My son had the tomahawk steak and raved about it. Wife,daughter and son's girlfriend liked their choices as well. Our server Anthony was excellent. We will be back soon for sure.

    I had heard good things about Diamond's but I had yet to try it. I decided to take a chance and invite some friends for a first visit. I don't usually do this because I like to check out a place first before asking friends to join me. I was pleasantly delighted at my visit. Everything from our greeting, drinks at a wonderful bar, food service, quality and quantity, and most of all ambience were excellent. It was a fantastic experience at prices that were most affordable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and will be going back often.

    I have known Tommy and Anthony since Diamonds in Chambersburg back in the 80's. They have always been emphatic in making sure the food is top rate and the diners receive maximum pleasure. There may have been a few bumps in their latest venture last fall however the kinks are now gone. I've been on the fine dining scene for over 30 years and this gem is as good as it gets unless you want to spend crazy money and drive to NYC. Even then your service will not compare.

Service was much improved from when Diamond's first opened, although I was not asked how I would like my filet cooked (nor was I told the default cooking temperature - medium rare - until I asked).
