This was our first visit. Excellent overall experience. Our waitress Patty was friendly and professional. She anticipated our needs but also gave us space to enjoy our dinner. The atmosphere is just right for an adult evening out. The menu had something for everyone. The app special was meatballs - outstanding. Hope they have it next time we go. Entree and dessert were also top-notch. I highly recommend Duling Kurtz House.

Been away from town for a number of years. So it was a very pleasant surprise to return to the same excellent service and good food. We each had something different and the salmon, filet and lobster special were great. We will return for sure.

My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner. Never disappointed. Martinis at the bar, followed by a great dinner, awesome wine pairing and Uber home.

A truly delightful evening and one we’ll enjoy again. No special occasion necessary.

Duling Kurtz is a special venue that makes any occasion seem out of the ordinary. We chose the restaurant to celebrate with a nephew and meet his fiancée. We were seated quickly and our server was attentive without being overbearing. Right before ordering a party of four was seated at the table next to us who were very loud. We asked to change tables and were immediately moved to an empty dining room where we were able to continue our conversations about getting to know the plans of this young couple. The restaurant’s accommodation with relocating us was wonderful as was the food and the service was outstanding.

I would call dining here, Early American Eloquence. We've celebrated our anniversaries here for more than 30 years. The Hunt Room is our favorite. Service is top notch with an extensive wine list. And each meal is well prepared with sophisticated tastes and aromas. Alway a special evening with a quite ambiance for romantic conversations and heartfelt reflections. A joy.

The current owners of the Duling Kurtz continue to provide consistent, high quality fine dining and service. All of the staff are dedicated to assuring a wonderful experience.
The property has history and charm that makes the DK stand out and above most all other dining options in Chester County.
We visit the DK on a regular basis and will be back again.

We just got home from an amazing date night dinner. We have both lived in this area for the majority of our lives and had never been. Upon entering we were greeted by the owner who is also the hostess and asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I work as a server and had a rare Friday night off, so a date night for newly empty nesters. Amy was our server and was pleasantly energetic. Grilled octopus and clams casino appetizers to start, soup du jour, and NY strip steak and lamb entrees finished with chocolate mousse and crème brûlée, every bite was delicious. Definitely will go back!

We enjoy Duling-Kurtz on every visit. We are greeted warmly by the owner and have enjoyed sitting at the bar engaging in conversations with both Michaels. The menu is sufficiently diverse but thankfully not overwhelming. The dishes are creatively designed and the food prep is meticulous. We enjoy the wait staff and the classic yet casual atmosphere. It is our “go to” for special,occasions.

Duling Kurtz is one of our favorites spots. We were joined by another couple.
Our server Amy was a hoot and she made it so much fun.
Food is always wonderful.
Parking was at a premium that evening which is unusual.

Quite run down restaurant. Interior shabby and furnishings cheap without feeling period authentic. The exterior and parking lot are falling apart

Food was moderate. Duck was bone-dry. Service fine, but the waitress seemed rushed.

No plans to repeat. Pricey and not worth it
