    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We dined at Sidney Willoughby Run for Mothers Day on Saturday night. We had not been there before and selected it for the chef and newness. We were seated outdoors, our request. We overlooked what looked like a golf course but instead was beautifully maintained land. The landscaping around the outside seating area was perfect. There was a built in fireplace so we will surely come back in cooler weather. The food was as we expected, over the top delicious. We shared the white pizza before our main course. Everything is 'small plates', so there were 4 perfect sized slices. We then made 2 selections each for our main course. Just fantastic. There was so many items to choose from! With 4 drinks the total came to $96! Very reasonable.

    We were a group of 8 who booked the night before. Wonderful view. It was too cool to sit outside but would be terrific in the summer. Pleasant wine list with small and larger pours, great idea. Food was fresh, inventive without being precious. Service was good and appropriate for the setting. The inn itself is a little "clinical" and could use a little more elegance to go with the food. We could hear each other speak which is rare these days. I would say this is a find for those who like something different than the civil war type places there.

    We visited Sidney in January upon returning our daughter to Gettysburg. The food is very creative and the staff very gracious and accommodating. We went back this past week, some really nice staples remained - burrata and mango salad and the tzatziki, hummus and olives. The tenderloin and short ribs were just wonderful. The weather contributed to lovely outdoor dining and the cover of the porch made for a delightful evening. Sidney is a unique place for very good food at prices that make it less a "regular" haunt, more for special occasions, but the calibre and freshness of the food and the welcome options for dining - outdoors, inside tables or at the bar, make the meal very worthwhile.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Sidney. Though small plates, a soup or salad and main are a nice-sized meal if you never learned about sharing. Fantastic food and beautiful enough presentations that I texted pictures to a food-blogging friend. If you're there in the spring, make sure to get the stinging nettle soup with crispy sweetbreads and wild mushrooms. And don't miss the dark chocolate tart with coconut gelato. Anyone who likes interesting preparations of very fresh ingredients should definitely put this on the Gettysburg to-do list.

    Tapas size portions came with novel veggies in sauces both unexpected and tasty. An amuse bouche of light asparagus woke up the taste buds and made you hungry for more. Duck pate divine, duck breast sliced thin received raves from four sharers in our table. White pizza OK, but not exciting. Tempura excellent. Service attentive, thoroughly knowledgeable about the food and wines. Setting is formerly Gettysburg Golf Clubhouse, in the tavern room. No frills or theatrics, just excellent food.

    We thought we were lost: building is set back from road and looked too quiet for a restaurant. But wow! We knew we were in for a treat when the "amuse bouche" of asparagus puree and truffle oil showed up in small glasses. We split the Mediterranean plate (pita, hummus, olives, tzaziki), followed by the whitefish on onion tarte and the short rib - both delicious. And neither too big nor too small. Lovely light dessert of meringue with dark chocolate. Wine list of small but very decent selection of reds & whites - fair prices - and a pleasant surprise that both 4 oz and 7 oz wines by the glass offered (good for the designated driver). Service was pleasant and knowledgeable. The ambiance? There wasn't any, but that's OK; we didn't miss it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/23/2013
    The food - absolutely every dish our group of 4 ordered - was FANTASTIC !! Delicious, unique, beautifully presented. I couldn't find a single thing that wasn't absolutely perfect. The ONLY dish I (personally) didn't like was the brussel sprouts, but that's because, try as I might, I just don't like them (but everyone else did!). The chef sent out 'extra' desserts (3 of the 4 of us had ordered dessert) of lavender & buttercream cookies and something very chocolately that I was absolutely too stuffed to try -- again, delicious! The wine list is not extensive, but it has obviously been carefully chosen. My only suggestion is that add'l work needs to be done to improve the ambience; large rooms w/high ceilings feel too 'banquet hall-ish'.

    The food and service were outstanding. It was a quiet night, but I think the service would still have been great. And the food was amazing -- from a polenta amuse bouche to some complimentary truffles after dinner. We shared the hummus/tzatziki starter, a great beet salad, and one of us had butternut squash ravioli and the other a great chicken dish. It was pricey but worth every penny. Go try Sideny at Willoughby Run!

    Our waiter, Tim, was excellent. He attentively served the entire room, never used a notepad to keep track of orders, and has a positive energy about him. The selections on the menu lends itself to a wide variety of pallets. Nothing was overpowering in both taste and smell. Smaller, healthier sized portions are perfect. Noticed there were no condiments on the tables (salt, pepper, sugar) and congratulate the chef for confidently preparing dishes that needed no other seasoning.

    Loved this place! I love the concept of small plates/tapas and trying a variety of new things! My only suggestion would be to serve bread or rolls. If you are looking for large portions and a lot of food then this is not for you. Would defeat the whole purpose of the restaurant. Everything is fresh and well prepared. True gourmet. Great wine list and drink menu. Gettysburg needed a place like this. Let's just hope everyone "gets" the concept. I work in Manhattan-so I am very familiar with tapas/small plate concept.

My wife's minestrone soup was the best she has ever tasted and my lobster tail with licorice, garlic cream and uni (sea urchin) was as good as the best restaurants in Paris in which I have dined. Finally, the homemade sorbets, ice creams, and granites for dessert were superb! All in all a wonderful dining experience!

    This was our second time eating at Sidney, and both times were perfect. We came just before Christmas for the first time, and brought friends back with us this time. The menu changed slightly. I tend to be a creature of habit, and was looking forward to having the exact same thing I enjoyed before: Parsnip soup and the NY strip. The soup was the same, but the NY strip changed. It came with a braised short rib and different sauce this time. The steak was still delicious. The new sauce was great. The short rib was disappointing. Still, everything else was perfect! We love this restaurant, and will certainly be back regularly

    The presentation of the food was very good although the food itself was okay not great. The waitress mentioned that it was tapas although the portions are slightly larger than traditional tapas. The escargot was excellent. The duck was okay but overdone and a bit dry. The lobster salad was good as was the pasta. The scallops, of which there were only two, were not that great. There is not much to choose from in this area - With that in mind it's probably one of the better joints.

    Thanks to Open Table, where I looked to see whether anything new had opened in Gettysburg in the last 8 months, we landed on this gem. Food was wonderful, small plates and nice variety of local foods. Space is simple and sophisticated near the bar, with a large function room at the back and outdoor dining. Our waiter was very thoughtful, answering questions and talking about the restaurant. This is the second restaurant to open under the same umbrella, the other being 15 minutes out of Gettysburg. The ratings on YELP and UrbanSpoon were really accurate in describing this place. It has a good, unique place in the food offerings in Gettysburg, good price point, high standard of cooking and creativity. We will certainly come back.

    The atmosphere was very nice and quiet. When you first walk in there is a fireplace and chairs to sit and wait for your table. We walked through the bar and it was very nice. Then you have to walk through the banquet room to get to the restaurant part. The restaurant is very warm and comfortable with a fireplace. Its a bit rustic in ambiance.

    Everything about the food is exceptional. Truly exceptional. We are patiently awaiting a cappuccino/espresso machine. The setting has so much potential and the summer outdoor dining is lovely, with a bucolic view of gently sloping grass and trees. We would love to see the interior ambiance evolve to match the wonderful plates-the rooms feel a little sparse and remote. There is a large banquet room that would do quite nicely for a wedding. The staff are very much on their toes. Knowledgeable and nice. You come away with the feeling that you have had the very best meal you could have anywhere. And I always learn something new about food and/or drink when I go.

    The four of us enjoyed a delicious meal of "small plates" on Saturday night at Sidney's at Willoughby Run. Couple #2 had trouble finding the restaurant because there is no lighted sign. They found us and we should note that the handicapped section is at the bottom of a slight hill. The food is well-prepared, innovative and yummy! I had the pizza as a sort of appetizer; there was enough to share. My companion had the oysters; he liked them. Couple # 2 shared a cheese plate. I had the bacalau, a salt-cod deliciously prepared. The others had squash-filled ravioli, steak, and scallops. The desserts were divine. The service was well-informed.
