    I was more than satisfied with our evening except for one thing. I just wanted a taste of spaetzle. Instead I got a dish for $12.- that could serve two people , plus there were mashed potatoes with the mixed vegetable medley. There was no way I could eat both. I think our server, Cara, who was great in so many ways, should have warned me in advance about this extra item that I could not eat.

    As always, the food and atmosphere was A+, and we will return as soon as we can. The mushroom soup and tart were unbelievable - my husband said he'd like that mushroom tart to be larger so he could have it as an entree. The Lobster Crepes were delicious as usual. I had the herb-crusted scallops and shrimp were a delicious seafood dinner, my husband had the salmon with he said was incredible, and my bother had the short-ribs, which he said was amazing and he would definitely get again.

The food was amazing - plenty of it too - alot of nicer restaurants you leave feeling hungry - not here! I would highly recommend Duling Kurtz for your next fine dining meal - you won't be disappointed at all!

    Reservations were light that night and it seemed almost everyone was seated in the one room, which made for a rather loud dining experience. The server was very nice but the TIMING of the meal service was very bad. We prefer a more leisurely dining experience. We ordered our appetizers and waited until those were brought to the table before ordering the entrées. I ordered onion soup which was just ok. I was literally finishing the last few spoonfuls when the entrées arrived at the table. I finished the soup as the server stood next to me holding my crab cake. The crab cake was mostly crab with only some filler which is great. But the crab cake itself had very little taste, which is not so great. My wife had the scallops as an appetizer. There were only two which surprised us given the price. All in all it was just a so-so experience. We felt rushed when it really wasn’t necessary given it wasn’t a very busy night for the restaurant. We were back in our car 55 minutes after we arrived. Overall, just not an enjoyable night out. We both are not in any rush to go back.

    Duling Kurtz is a must-have experience at least once for anyone in the area. Food and service is ALWAYS top notch. This was no different--french onion soup was amazing, my mushroom risotto was perfectly cooked, my companion's wienerschnitzel was very good. Love it. And as always, really friendly and attentive service. You must go to this place. That said, two complaints, one minor one major. Minor: hostess nowhere to be found when we got there, stood there for at least 3 minutes with no one seating us, even though two servers saw us and went actively looking for the host. Eventually she came, no big deal. Major: halfway through the meal this group of four was seated in the opposite corner of the dining area. It was not that busy--the noise level was not bad at all. Until these damn people, one guy specifically, who was extremely drunk and practically yelling whenever he said anything. He would tell raucous stories we heard word for word, and obnoxiously laugh, and order his server around. He ruined the experience for us and for the fellow diners next us--and they were kinda loud too, but nowhere near this guy. You expect some noise--not this. One table left, we complained, the table next to us complained, and our server twice said they were too loud. A manager supposedly was going to tell this idiot to be quiet, but all she did was walk over, hesitantly look at them, then walked away. That's it. She picked like the one time he wasn't talking to come over so apparently she said nothing. I'm sorry, but that's not acceptable. I don't care how good a tipper or customer that guy is--your job is to make a good experience for EVERY customer, not just one. I really hope they see this and realize they messed up the situation, and will do better in the future.

    We were given mussels without a shell dish, or dishes to eat them on, then didn’t see the waitress again to even ask. The steak was fatty, and the carrots were undercooked. However, the mussels were great, and the dessert was good. We wanted to like it bad enough that we would try again.

    Good, but very expensive. The atmosphere is nice, but wish they'd soften the acoustics in the room so conversations don't echo throughout the space. the weinerschnitzel was delicious as was the food the others in the party enjoyed. The prime rib was grossly though. It really should have been sent back especially at $54! I'd still recommend for a special occasion.

    Literally everyone at the restaurant wished us a happy anniversary! The wait staff couldn't have been nicer. And the food was delicious. My wife and I had some of the speciality martinis (amazing), strip steak and wienrschnitzel (terrific), but the desserts were hand's-down the best part. Chocolate mousse, peanut butter lava cake and raspberry linzertorte was heavenly.
