    Being a little older and having traveled quite a bit, we have food and ambiance standards higher than most. We found Sidney to be a rare find with high end food & service in a most warm and comfortable surrounding. Their staff is excellent, with the added delight of being obviously happy with what they bring to your dining experience. I recommend Sidney whole-heartedly to everyone looking for an extraordinary dining experience.

    Sidney, the stalwart standout. The East Berlin original remains an exceptional treat. We make the hour-long drive for lunch every month or two. The bar handles cocktails, craft beer and wine with equal aplomb. My wife's martini was outstanding and I was thrilled with the Victory Hop Devil on tap. Webster's does not provide enough adjectives for their world-class blue cheese chips. The burger is an amazing balance of flavor and texture. The staff continues to provide that perfect balance of knowledge, attention and style. East Berlin, you don't have any idea how lucky you are.

    Most bottles of wine are 50% off on Tuesday--the day we were there. This time, Sidneys offered a small complimentary appetizer as well as a small complimentary dessert, which they did not offer the last time we were there (February 14--maybe they were too busy). A nice bonus. This is definitely an adults only restaurant, great for special occasions. The few times we have seen (and heard) little kids there, it was not pleasant, especially for the poor kids, who probably would have preferred a burger and fries at MacDonald's..

    If you are looking for a special place for a celebration with that special someone, pick Sidney. The food is high side quality and the service is excellent. They do not rush you through your courses and the wine list is exceptional as well. So, relax bring that special person in your life and enjoy the food. This is our number one favorite spot to bring friends visiting from out of the area as well as family on special occasions. You will love this place.

    We dine at Sidney several times a year both in the bar area and dining section. During the nice spring, summer, and fall weather, we choose to eat outside. On this occasion we ate inside. Generally we find the place full as usual but not as loud. We were not able to really carry on a nice conversation because of the noise at the far end of our dining room. It was a table for 8 in the back bar end corner. We sat in the front corner. All we could do is set there and listen to their loud talking. I have hearing aids in both ears, which I turned down, but the noise was still so very loud and rude. Besides this experience, everything was up and up. I must say only I had to ask for water twice, which should not have happened. We still enjoyed.

  • Worst service I have ever had
    Random
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    It was a younger man who had no clue how to attend to customers. Did not get bread or soup spoon to eat. I had to flag down the hostess and asked for a spoon for my soup and if we were supposed to get bread. We had the last two servings of Salmon. It was served in a 'soup' of pink sauce that was not that good. I think they dumped whatever sauce was left onto our plates instead of a drizzle which would have been enough. Then when dessert was served the server bolted again and my wife had no silverware to eat with. After trying to get his attention again I finally flagged down another server to get my wife a fork. we did not get the complimentary dessert treat that we saw other tables getting. We were totally dissapointed with our experience

    We visit Sidney multiple times per year. On our most recent visit, however, we were disappointed that the usual amenities were not offered or provided. They typically provide an amuse and an end-of-the-meal surprise (for example, miniature creampuff), both compliments of the chef. Neither was provided. Service was uncharacteristically average. We will return in the hope that the deficiencies associated with this particular visit are not repeated.

    Wow, I loved this place. The staff was great from the person at the bar to the waitress to others we met along the way. The food was not only delicious but very interesting in a good way. Great presentation. Unusual combinations. I had the rare prime rib (excellent) and my wife had salmon above a bed of spinach in a pool of sauce made from unripened grapes that I wanted to finish for her as if soup. I highly recommend Sidney's!

    I was hesitant to book our first reservation here. It looked a little small and dated. However, the menu looked appealing. My wife and I were thrilled with Sydney! It is quite relaxing and upscale. The food was right on par with the cost. $150 for two beers, two glasses of house wine, two first courses, two main courses, and two desserts. The hosts are wonderful and thoughtful. The servers are always available. We are planning to return in the summer to take advantage of the gorgeous patio!

    Our experience made for a nice night out. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Waitress was wonderful, although she forgot desert at the end and just brought out my husbands beer, when reminded she got right on it. Oyster appetizer was delicious. The chef sent out a sampling of a few appetizers. The Brussels sprout with blue cheese and candied bacon was my favorite. Our main courses were wonderful and arrived in a timely fashion. Only disappointment was dessert. I was really hungry for Creme brûlée, the only way to get it was in a trio with other items. I was very disappointed. I don't mind paying ten dollars for a dessert when the quality is good or serving size fair, but sad to say my dessert was neither. That being said I will return.

    Had a very nice dinner at Sidney's. Two choices of menus... The bar menu or the dinner menu. Dinner menu a little pricey but good for special occasions. Bar menu had good choices as well for a lower price. Friends had a cheeseburger which h they said was fantastic. I had a the Hake off the dinner menu which was good, but a little pricey for the portion. This was a great place but will be a special occasion visit only in the future.
