Carnegie House is without a doubt the finest dining in State College. It's definitely worth a visit.

We were greeted by a wonderful hostess, Dawn. We visited the library where we ordered drinks. While we were seated, Dawn served us a complimentary appetizer. It was delicious! We were then seated at our table and given the lighted menus. The dinner was exceptional. Hats off to the chef. We will definitely return.

The restaurant reminded me of being in a old upscale house. The library room was very nice, we had an app and a drink there before being seated.

I ordered an app ( The foie gras), salad ( the Brie cheese salad) and venison filet for dinner. The app was tasty and flavorful. My salad was good, nothing to rave about, a solid salad. My dinner was over cooked, I asked for mid rare, received medium. The venison was tasty and moist, but over cooked for my taste. I did try their homemade steak sauce which was good( it was sweet tasting).

Dessert was good, nothing spectacular.

Overall , it was a decent meal. It was a solid dinner, no frills or thrills , nothing that made my palate go omg this amazing.

I’ll head back, but won’t make a special trip back.

As always, Carnegie House is a relaxing dining experience beginning with drinks by the fireplace and followed by dinner is a quiet atmosphere.

One of the best restaurants in or near State College. For a quiet, special night it is the perfect place. And the steaks are out of this world.
