    We do love Sedgley Place. Everyone is friendly and attentive. The food is very good. The atmosphere is nice. Unfortunately neither of us got the entree we ordered - which was disappointing as both received something we either couldn't or didn't care to have. We know it was a mix up so we decided to enjoy our evening just the same. I would still recommend this place, as we have had great experiences here before.

    I have dined here for over 20 years but unfortunately this will be the last time. The noise was so loud in the room that eventually we stopped trying to have a conversation. Service was slow. All side dishes were cold. Waitress did not acknowledge our daughter's birthday and what made it worse was during our desert a birthday was acknowledged at the table next to us.

    Top marks for the entire dining experience. Lovely country in atmosphere. Price fixed five course meal menu included only about five entre choices, but offered meat, fish and chicken dishes. My wife had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection and delicious. I had pork tenderloin with a glaze that was equally well prepared. The star of the show was there array of fresh vegetables (root medley, honey squash, twice baked potato) which were especially delicious. And even though the front room was full, it was relatively quiet and pleasant. Reservations only. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Crowded, noisy 1st floor dining room, waitress loudly belting out the menu. Cheese & Crackers were OK. French Onion soup recipe has changed unfortunately & disappointing as well as served luke warm. Salad was just a salad, mushroom caps lacked seasoning. The 'Special' was not special. Scallops were dry a cold. Asparagus w/ cheese stuffed chicken breast wrapped bacon smotheted in mayonaise was cold... Bacon wet and uncooked. We loved the carrots but the other orange veg was under seasoned and also cold. Dessert choices were mostly bough and frozen ....lacked the homemade seasonal choices we have always loved. No warm apple crisp, bread pudding or Indian pudding with vanilla ice cream .

    Have been going to Sedgley Place for many years but this time didn't beckon me back for another visit. Granted it was a Tuesday night, but the service was slow (particularly the bar service), the Caesar Salad was overdressed and limp, the mashed potatoes were very dry....but the roulade was done right and very good, and the apple crisp was excellent.

    We have come many times before and after we got married. We now make it a tradition to go on out anniversary. We weren't as pleased this time. Waitress was nice but didn't come back often to check on us or give us our bill. We seemed to wait awhile for drink refills. The noise level was ridiculous we sat in a romantic little cubby loved it but the rest if the room was so loud and distracting. My husbands salad was inedible.. It was bitter and left a bad taste in your mouth. We did enjoy our time but it seemed like the times before were so much more enjoyable. Also when we arrived and left we had to stand around because there was no hostess at the desk.

    I took my husband out for his birthday and we enjoyed a wonderful evening with fine food and good wine. The only downside to the evening was a large table with 8 that would get quite loud. We would recommend the staple filet mignon, and the indulgent Hot Fudge Sunday with Brownies for dessert. All in all a wonderful evening and I am sure we will be back again.

    This restaurant is our hands down favorite. The vegetable cream soup is to die for. So fresh. They get their vegetables from their own local certified organic farm with an indoor location in the winter. I had the beef tenderloin but it was more like butter in my mouth. Everything about the last meal and every one before this has been Rockin' stupendous at this restaurant! Best food I've ever eaten.

    This place was recommended by a friend as a unique dining experience and it was. It's not often now a days that there is a restaurant that offers a 5 course meal.....6 if you take advantage of the additional special. We found the food choices for each course to be unique and upscale (I.e., lobster stuffed filet with bernaise sauce) but with some standard options like filet mignon and prime rib. Portions are not too small or too generous. They are perfect considering there are 5 courses. it was a great meal, excellent service and I'd go back.

    For an $85 meal, I honestly expected more. To say they serve a 5-course meal is a stretch, considering course #1is a basket full of prepackaged crackers with a spoonful of lumpy cheese dip. In general the food was sub-par. Disappointing considering the amount of money we spent.

My wife and I went for our 12 year Anniversary and were amazed by the local food they used and how everything looked. This will be our Special place to go out for dinner not just to celebrate an event, I can't wait to go back again.
