Fantastic dinner at Duling-Kurtz. The food is outrageous, and those popovers with lemon curd are out of this world. They have lovely small dining rooms, each with their own charm. This evening, we sat on the second floor, overlooking the garden area. It was lovely. The experience was even better because of their great wait staff. The were friendly, and listened to us. They ensured everything was cooked to order and perfectly timed. Kudos to Kai and Kasey!! My only regret was we were too full for desserts (which sounded awesome). These chefs really know how to cook.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was our first time dining out since The pandemic started. This was worth the wait! The service, the food, the atmosphere - we love it here and it’s why we celebrate our special occasions here when we can. Thank you to everyone at Duling-Kurtz House for making our anniversary so special!

We hadn’t been to the Duling Kurtz house for a few years, and were excited to go back for Mother’s Day. They did not disappoint! Wonderful meals and service in a classic setting. And the staff was we and welcoming. Despite a full house for the holiday, the food was delivered perfectly and was delicious. We will be back soon!

Excellent wild boar and lobster crepes entrees with tasty octopus and escargot starters. Popovers are always a hit. Server was friendly but did not offer us the chance to taste the bottle of wine we ordered. Food service was too slow with the entrees arriving 1 hour and 50 minutes after we were seated. The $56 wild boar price was very high and the $9.50 for a double espresso was exorbitant.

Solidly great place. Host wasn’t expecting us as we booked only 30 min before on open table., so when we came in had to find him ourselves and he scrambled around to prepare a spot for us. The server was extremely friendly, and I almost hate to say this, but almost too enthusiastic - to the level that she was a bit loud and, while I believe she was genuine, it sounded and felt a bit overboard, as if doing this was making her a cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. It made her intrude on our serious conversation a little too often , too loudly, too long with chitchat, to check on us, instead of tactfully feeling out the situation and just checking once or twice briefly. Still she was super nice, just maybe dial it down from a 12 to a 9…. However, she was prompt, knowledgeable, and gets and A for effort and for doing her job. Place is very cute, food was excellent.

Only a couple of small complaints. Our waiter seemed young and was a little slow. I think we were forgotten because where we sat was a bit secluded. Second, would not recommend the asparagus or asparagus soup - very stringy asparagus, the steak was excellent but the side vegetables were a little salty.

Lovely meal and great service. The interior could use an update; it’s still 1989 decor. Food was very good, but a bit overpriced.

From appetizers to dessert, our second visit to Duling-Kurtz was as excellent as our first. In fact, the hot and dirty martinis made it even better. And special thanks to our server, Kai, without whom we might not be engaged today!

If you're in the mood for a perfect quiet dinner, go to Duling Kurtz. There is something on the menu for everyone, from Authentic Austrian dishes to seafood, steak, and vegetarian choices. Not a huge menu, but it is varied enough to provide something for everyone. Pricing is a moderate, but we don't mind paying for the excellent food and service.

Our reservations were running half hour behind. Then wine I ordered was out of stock, first it took half hour to order wine. And get drink order. Then ordered oyesters and they were out of stock as well. Finally got appetizers an hour and half after getting to restaurant at 730 pm. Ordered food at 915 pm. Left restaurant so tired. Just not efficient on Valentine’s Day. I expected top notch for the prices. Nice ambiance

We love the Durling Kurtz House. My girlfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day there. I had sent flowers ahead to be put on the table, and we had a beautiful table right next to the fire place.

Dinner was excellent, I had veal chop that was just delicious, my girlfriend had the twin lobster tails and they were also delicious.

Unfortunately it took almost 1-1/2 hours for our food to come out. The waiter did check on us but the kitchen was overwhelmed on Valentine’s Day. The table next to ours which was seated right after we were seated still didn’t have their meals when we left.
