Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I love this place, it's our main go to for special dinners. We feel like we are far far away from home and reality during our visit. Food is fantastic"

  • "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."

  • "This was our third time at Sidney and it is consistently excellent overall"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We have a fine time, food was good, everyone was pleasant. It did get loud, but it was packed. This was our second visit and we will be back when in the area."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "There are few restaurants in this area that can even come close to compare to the food served. We have never been disappointed and the menu continues to change with different delectable items. Always exceptional!!!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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!"

  • "The food and service were great. The kitchen was a little slow but it was a busy night."

  • "This is a fascinating little place tucked away from the crowds. Get your reservation early or you might not get in. The service is splendid and the food is fantastic. Even simple pasta is brought to a whole new level."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food and service are excellent. We will definitely go back again!"

  • "The presentation was good, the first course was outstanding, but the steak was average. For the high price, I'm not rushing back."

  • "There were 4 of us, we all ordered different things and everything was beyond delicious. The service was also very good and the ambiance is quiet, rustic - very nice for a special occasion. The complimentary starters and enders are a very nice touch too."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "Restaurant was warm and friendly. Ours meals were picture perfect. Our table shared two wonderful appitizers. The menu has something for everyone. Beef, pork, multiple fish dishes. Our table ordered Scottish salmon, duck and an evening special of venison. The desserts are all house made and fabulous. Chef presented a one bite appetizer and a one bite desert which were quite a treat. This is a must stop dining experience."

  • "We have enjoyed quite a few meals in this restaurant. Our service this evening was exceptional. Our NY strips were delicious, seasoned perfect and very tender. My husbands Prime Rib was extremely fatty. The chopped salad is a must!! Dare to try and your taste buds go crazy, in a delicious way!!!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We were seated immediately, and a server was there to greet our table very quickly. The service remained very punctual throughout the meal. Everyone's food was very good. We brought our own wine, and only paid a $9 corkage fee - very reasonable. East Berlin Sydney is a definite do again."

  • "We have tried many different restaurants for New Year's Eve and usually found that the qualilty of the service and food could not keep up with the special busy pace. This year we went to Sidney's and were so pleased. Nothing suffered! The food, the service, everything was perfect and fabulous. We took guests with us who had never been to Sidney's and they have thanked us profusely for introducing them to this gem of a restaurant. We couldn't be more pleased."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had reservations at the Sidney for 7:45 on New Year's Eve. My husband and I got there early to have a drink at the bar, we sat for 20 minutes before we ever got a drink, and then we were seated at our table. We were greeted fairly quicly by our server, but had to ask for menu's, then another round of drinks took another 30 minutes, and we also had to ask for water from a food runner. We also noticed lots of other grumpy tables that were waiting a long time for drinks and food, I'm assuming they were under staffed and the person behind the bar was awful, we also heard a large party complaining about how long they had been waiting for a table. Once we got our dinner, it was good, I had the prime rib and my husband had the strip."

  • "This was our first experience at Sidney after seeing rave reviews and hearing good things from a few locals. I found the food to be tasty and certainly more exotic than the normal local findings, but I wasn't blown away. We found our server didn't clearly describe the ingredients of the feature entre dish we chose and so we were a bit disappointed in it. The goat cheese salad was delicious. The Lemon Cream Parfait, which sounded wonderful for dessert, was rather disappointing, as it was extremely tart and lacked a balance of sweetness. I expected more when paying the prices of their menu. I will return for a second try in the future and remember to ask more definition of dish preparation."

  • "Sidneys is always a real treat. The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is fantastic. The people associated with Sidneys go out of their way to make the experience memorable. We sadly only go there on special occasions but would love to make the experience a regular occurrence. All of the food is prepared just perfectly. This restaurant is a hidden gem."

  • "We arrived at 5:45 on New Years Eve, and didn't leave until 8:30 and we had places to be!!!! The food was excellent, we got 2 orders of the lobster special risotto and 1 order of the scottish salmon. The meal was otherwise ruined by the complete lack of attention from the server staff. For example, a glass of Merlot ordered to be with dinner arrived when we were almost finished so we refused it and sent it back. There were several times after waiting almost an hour between the 1st course and the 2nd that our server never came back to give us an update or refill glasses or get a drink order. The restaurant was busy but seriously not that busy. It's a shame we have been there several times and never experienced anything this neglectful."
