  • "Much less crowded then usual. Always a good experience."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food is delicious and the service excellent. Highly recommend."

  • "This was my first time here and it was definitely worth the drive. Our waitress was very attentive and enthusiastic. Can't wait to return"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Waitress was obviously not enjoying her job. One of our guests asked for burger med - medium well, specifically asked that it not be burnt or hard around the edges. It arrived as a burnt offering - inedible! Guest returned the burger and waitress was not at all pleasant about it. To be fair, we often go with a group of 6 - 8 for Sunday brunch and find the staff pleasant and helpful and food is typically very good. This unfortunate day was an aberration, but a huge disappointment as we had business guests with us and they were quite unimpressed."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Servers too busy to appropriately see to their customers' needs. Noise level too high for comfortable eating. Croissants not available during meal. Told had to be baked off approximately twenty-five to thirty minutes. Food itself delicious and well presented."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We haven't had a bad meal year yet. We've had the Sunday Brunch buffet several times. There are and endless amount of breakfast foods and carved meats, and desserts. Can't beat the bread pudding for dessert. Dinner had some wonderful prime rib. Great taste"

  • "If you only have three hours and are in need of a break from reality, come to the Hunt Room at the Desmond. We leave nutriously and artfully fed and SO relaxed! You will be satisfied following a healthy plan or special event splurging. The service is superb. Every patron is treated with the utmost in respect and value. Ask for a table with Jake! Even our conversation was better for the ambiance and care. You don't need to look like royalty, the setting is casually beautiful. Khaki and cotton or suits are treated the same, like an honest-to-goodness-valued being."

  • "Had not been to the Hunt Room since I worked in the area a few years ago. Was looking for a special place to take my wife's 93 year old cousin who was part of the Normandy Day invasion. We found it. He enjoyed the atnosphere and the food so much he can't wait to take his 94 year old wife at the first opportunity. They are very fussy. Glad I reconnected. It's back on my first choice list."

  • "Saturday night dinner. Several group happenings that did not detract from our experience. Staff gracious and attentive. Ambience excellent. Cocktails a bit pricey but good. Mushroom soup superb. Lobster bisque very good. Prime rib with asparagus and baked potato excellent. Rack of lamb very good (1 piece overdone, the rest medium rare), with sides of mashed potato and carrots good. Banana cream pie for dessert atypical: graham cracker crust with vanilla custard, sliced bananas on top and cream on top of that: pie a wedge, cream in a square: odd but good. "

  • "We were here for the Sunday Brunch. Some of the reviews had us slightly uncertain. Our experience was quite good. We were greeted and seated promptly. The food on the buffet was above average. Our server (Collin?) was attentive, but not obtrusive. The dessert table looked great, but we were already full, and had to pass on everything but a taste of the bread pudding with vanilla sauce, which was as good as bread pudding gets. The only less-than-positive comment I might make is the taste of the hollandaise. It seemed super-lemony and overpowering. Other than that, we'll be back."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Pleasantly surprised by the Hunt Room. Three course prix fixe menu ($34) had good choices, regular menu was interesting and service was excellent. Would not hesitate to return if in the area again."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Our food was excellent with the exception of the Apple Crumble for desert. There was only a teaspoon of apples and the rest was oats. The servers were very friendly, professional, and attentive but just a little slow. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We received a certificate to the Desmond for brunch through a charity silent auction, so my husband and I decided to take our mothers there for a belated Mother's Day gift. (I believe the brunch ON Mother's Day is larger, so the certificate was not good for that day, so this review is for their usual Sunday brunch). We were very happy with our experience. The food was excellent with a large selection of options. The salmon lox, which must be ordered from the back kitchen, was a large portion size and very tasty. And the staff was the most attentive I have ever seen at a buffet brunch. My only negative was that it got a little noisy in the room, but other than that, it was all excellent and delicious."

  • "Food was fine, nothing out of the ordinary. THere were two noisy groups nearby, people on their way to a Phillies game and a wedding party the morning after. Why is it always hard to find the waiter/waitress when it's time for the check?"

  • "Nice traditional room and good but traditional menu. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Collin was our server and as usual he provided great service to us (there were 6 in our group). Several of us ordered the buffet and all agreed that it was one of the best we have had. Those that ordered from the menu were equally pleased with the quality of their food. The legendary Bread Pudding was excellent as we had all anticipated. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. It is a great place for lunch."

  • "We both enjoyed the well-prepared Salmon dish on the Price Fixe menu selection list. My onion soup was wonderful. His Caesar salad crisp and filling. Side dishes were excellent. We took dessert home in carefully packaged ed containers. We look forward to our next dinner at the Hunt Room. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

  • "The restaurant is one of six in the Desmond Hotel. On this Saturday afternoon there was almost no one, but in the next hour several people came to dine. Two different steaks were great in size and tasty, the kamb rack was perfect. They also have a kids menu with chicken fingers and fries and burgers and icecream. We liked it. The waitress was VERY nice and attentive."

  • "Food tasted good but everything came out cold. There were only 4 tables full so there really was no excuse. Salad took a long time to come so I'm wondering if entrees were done & just sat around."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Our party of four was seated immediately upon arrival for a 5:15 reservation at a booth in nicely decorated, quiet surroundings. The menu was varied and we enjoyed the complimentary bruschetta plate and wonderful basket of breads. Our meal choices included the special stuffed sole, prime rib, and filet tips from the prix fixe menu, which also included an appetizer and dessert (sorbet, ice cream, banana cream pie and bread pudding). We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and this was a good location for our next event that evening at Penn State Great Valley. We will definitely be returning."

  • "We and our friends had a wonderful dining experience at The Hunt Room. It is always a treat to eat there. Our waitress was remarkable and so much fun and enthusiastic. I belong to a group of women that have lunch there every other month. We are never disappointed. Wait staff is very accommodating."

  • "Took my team (5 of us) here for lunch. The hostess seemed surprised at our 11:30 arrival and appeared skeptical of our reservation. Service was ok. The server was quiet and was short and sweet when she addressed our group. The crab and bisque soup was amazing and we hoped that our meals would be equally amazing. Although, the entrees came out barely luke warm. Neither the salmon or the strip steak had much flavor. Both were cooked to our liking, the taste just wasn't there."

  • "Always a nice expereince. I take my co-workers here every year. I must say I was extremely dissappointed in the food this year. We all got the lunch buffet and the food choices/selection were not that good for the price that I was paying. Next time we will order from the menu .............."

  • "I have eaten dinner at the Hunt Club several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and the waitstaff is helpful, welcoming and attentive. My friends and I meet every few months so our dinners are special times to catch up. We never feel rushed, and in fact we were encouraged to take our time and enjoy ourselves. My dinner of beef tournedos was delicious as were the potatoes and vegetables. I have already made plans to return in January and I highly recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience."

It is one of our favorite places."
