Our server Margo was the BEST. Turned out she was from my hometown and we exchanged stories. Very pleasant and attentive. Will ask for her at our next visit.
If I could give it 10 stars I would. Everything was excellent from oysters to salads to entrees. We had the tomato and mozzarella salad and the beet salad. I had the salmon and my husband had the rack of lamb, both fabulous. And.... the popovers were to die for!
We were there for lunch on a Saturday, we sat on the porch which was just lovely! Everyone loved their meal and the kitchen was VERY accommodating with some special orders. Best of all was our waitress! She was fantastic and made the entire experience a real joy!
Shrimp and scallops dinner was outstanding. Their popovers with homemade lemon curd are to die for!!!
We loved the music by Kevin and Larry. The food was great. The waitress was not very attentive, seemed frazzled, and came to the table smelling of cigarette smoke.
Food was awesome, Waitress was over the top, super nice!
Always great. We are frequent guests. The food is well portioned and the staff very friendly.
Our experience was great! Food and drinks were delicious! We were not rushed, and that made the dinner most enjoyable. We will be back.
Duling-Kurtz is our favorite restaurant to dine for special occasions, or even for a quiet evening out. We have celebrated many wedding anniversaries and Valentine dinners over the years at your establishment. The atmosphere is romantic, the grounds are beautiful and serene. The staff and management are consistently polite, professional, attentive and accommodating. And the food! Always delicious, it never fails to tastefully appeal and provide just the right portion to leave a little room for dessert. We look forward to our next visit!
Great facility with wonderful food and excellent service. WOW!!!
Our server June was excellent, however there was another server whose voice and animations dominated the room and after awhile were a bit annoying.
We started at the bar for a cocktail. Our bartender was very personable and made excellent drinks. Those if us who ordered the escargot really enjoyed along with the popovers. Those who ordered the foie gras thought the portion was extremely small for the price. Our entrees were good but not exceptional for the price. Our entrees included the veal chop special, the fish special, and the Weiner schnitzel. Our creme brûlée was very good. Service at the bar and at the table was excellent.
We had a wonderful time. We were in dining room of the home and felt like we had our own personal chef and waitress. It was a perfect evening.
Excellent food and service as always.
The schnitzel was a little dry and the scallops were not as tender as in the past. The beet salad was excellent and the service and ambiance were excellent. We go about once a year and normally the food is outstanding.
We celebrated a wedding anniversary and the evening was wonderful. June, our server, was delightful, the food was fantastic (we ordered the evening's specials - - fish of the day and lamb), and the atmosphere was very relaxed and inviting. All in all a wonderful time.
This is our favorite place to go to. Everyone there is always so accommodating it makes for very pleasant evening and food is always great.
Quaint historic setting .
Bar: Manhattan not made to requested specifications
App: well timed and delicious
Entree: well timed. Filet poor quality and not cooked to ordered doneness on 2 orders
Dessert: poorly timed. Creme brûlée cold ,bland and odd texture. Lava cake had no flavor.
Happy to pay for quality but
Can not recommend.
As always, had a wonderful meal for my Birthday. We love the Duling Kurtz House!
Fantastic food for a special occasion. Prices a bit high but food, service and atmosphere are great. Old fashioned classy farm house before.
Our waitress was enthusiastic and professional when it came to our time there! We went to celebrate our anniversary, per a friends recommendation. Our food was great and the Thyme drink from the bar was delish! I highly recommend. For an appetizer we had the alligator... so yummy! We ordered the steak and the seafood dinner. Both were great and to our dismay we had no room for dessert. The restaurant has great overnight specials. We will be back and we love the effervescent peaceful location!
This was our first time here and we celebrated my husband's birthday. We had a table right by the window to see the beautiful garden. Food was delicious and just the right portion size. Our waitress was attentive too. We would definitely return!
Mother’s Day dinner for our family of five. Disappointingly the menu had no pasta items to complement the ~8 meat and fish entrees. We had one vegetarian diner in our group who was relegated to eat a kid size spaghetti and red sauce dish. The food was good but consistently overpriced by $5-10 per entree, which may just have been Mother’s Day markup. We had Malbec by the glass which for a smallish glasses that were half full came out to $12 a piece. Ambience was good and service was efficient.
A rainy night but the food and ambiance was perfect. Husband's main was pheasant; perfectly cooked. I had herb crusted shrimp...delish. Very generous on the shrimp.
Loved our graduation celebration here. Had several seafood dishes as well as veal and beef, all well prepared and served. Service was excellent
Always a fabulous meal. We have celebrated many many occasions here along with simple yet elegant dining. Wonderful staff and delicious food served to your liking. A special place in Chester county. A definite must visit!
DK never fails to impress. From the excellent presentation of food to the ambiance to the service ( never rushed ) it is an experience to be enjoyed.
They offer very good selection of appetizers and enters. All meal seasoned well and served at the proper temperature. Our table enjoyed the Scottish Salmon, Lobster Crepes, and the Crab Cakes.
However, I would not recommend the octopus as it was the only item that was not properly prepared. If you are looking for perfectly prepared octopus head to Estia in Radnor or Center City.
Best bar, live music and bartender, Michael!
II this was the first visit, I would not recommend to a friend, but it was not. We waited an hour for our dinner to arrive. It was good but not worth the long wait. We will return to see it it was just one of those nights. They were not overly busy, so I don’t know what the problem was.
What you would expect from a high end restaurant. It was a great spot for our wedding anniversary. Love the old inn ambience. We also had a window view of a small stream, which was nice. We had escargot, rack of lamb, and lobster; all were good.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday. Absolutely wonderful experience. Ambience galore in eighteenth century surroundings. Service was attentive and cheerful. Food was cooked perfect with ample servings. While the cost is not cheap, it was money well spent. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special getaway.
Easter dinner. Horrible experience.
I’ve dined here once before and it was a lovely experience. This time was not as special. I believe they booked too many tables and didn’t have enough staff to accommodate. This was for Easter brunch. The food was fine. The three people with me liked their orders enough. Mine was not great. Certainly not worth what we paid for it. There was nothing about the food, the ambiance, or the service that justified the price. We dined upstairs in a room that is stuck in the 1980s. I love history and appreciate preserving historical charm. But this part of the restaurant is incredibly dated. I can look past all of that if the food and service are worthwhile. But alas, they were not. Long story short- we will try again at some point- but it will be for dinner. And not on a holiday.
Best bar, live music and bartender, Michael!
We went on a weekday night. There was a very small crowd. The waitstaff was very attentive and helpful. The food was only so so, given the venue. We have the special appetizer...smoked salmon and crab tartar with a mango purée. The purée was terribly sweet, overpowering the fish. We both had steaks...my husband the cowboy steak special and I had the sirloin strip. I should have asked for the sauce on the side—it unfortunately just overpowered the meat. The portions were really large—-frankly too large for my taste. All in all, meh....
Food was great and so was the service. It was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.
From the impeccable service to quality of food, Duling Kurtz never disappoints. Thank you for making our date night fabulous.
