Modest selection but most entrées are tasty but not adventurous

Table overlooked a quaint garden on a snowy evening...beautiful. We shared a tasty cheese board with wine followed by the Lobster Crepes and Scottish Salmon. Both were excellent. Last dined here on New Years Eve and decided to come back for Valentine's Day. Truly unique menu items makes Duling Kurtz worthy of many future visits. We genuinely enjoy this restaurant.

Excellent service. The apps were awesome but the main meals were just average. Been here several times and typically the food is excellent. This wouldn't stop us from coming back. We had the NY Strip steak and Shrimp and Scallops.

Loved the food. Staff (hostess and coat check, other waitress/not our server) was rude and dismissive. Sever was ok, but not friendly.

We had a fabulous dinner for our family as usual here. Our server was the best. He was very friendly, cheerful, and everything was delivered on time and delicious with a smile. My whole family was very pleased and we enjoyed a memorable evening. I highly recommend this restaurant. Enjoy.

This place has so much potential to be amazing, but the food has a long way to go before getting a 5 star rating.

The food was delicious, although the menu itself was a bit too exotic for our taste. They had changed their menu for Valentine’s Day. We would have enjoyed having a chicken (not Cornish hen) dish available or more beef options. We don’t eat camel or ostrich. Atmosphere was very romantic. Very good wine list. Overall a very good experience.

We have come to Duling-Kurtz for the past several years on Valentine's Day. They always deliver quality food and service. Already have our reservations booked for next year! Great views and wonderful dining experience!

Duling-Kurtz is usually excellent all around. They offered a braise rib-eye of camel which sounded interesting so I ordered it. My wife got the Lobster ravioli which was excellent as usual. The Camel was uneventful in flavor, relatively tough and a very small portion, especially for the dollars. The Server asked for my feedback which was what I just shared here. He came back to the table and informed us that I was not the only one who felt that way, so they took it completely off our bill. That was very generous of them and we will continue to dine there and recommend it to others. Our appetizers and salads were superb and you need go no further on the dessert options past the Cheese Strudel - it is phenomenal. Thank you DK, we will be back!

Pre-Valentine dinner with my wife. We sat in a charming interior room with a working fireplace. We opened a bottle of zinfandel and shared the octopus appetizer. While not chewey it was not as tender as most I have had and was lacking the trademark wood-grilled finish.

My wife loved her lobster crapes although the mashed potatoes that accompanied the entree seemed bland-underseasoned and underbuttered.

My 6 oz scottish salmon was tasty and perfectly cooked. Again the accompanying veggies lacked sparkle-bland rissoto with string beans and carrots.

A charming atmosphere but the food fell short of the acclaim in my opinion.

First time for my wife and I at the restaurant. Food was excellent and our server, June, was a wealth of info. The regular menu has terrific items and in addition, their specials were even better. We were not rushed through dinner and enjoyed an excellent early Valentine's Day dinner. We'll be back!

My wife and I celebrated our birthdays. Well diversified and just the right number of selections on the menu. Food was very well prepared and seasoned perfectly. Entree potions were quite generous. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the details of the menu. Ambience is classic traditional Chester County.

This is our third recent visit to Duling Kurtz. We love it. Fireplace in every room. Great bar selection. The Caesar and Kale Salad is our favorite, made table side. I passed on oysters on the half shell because I was getting the Cioppino . The Cioppino was a special and it was excellent. Everything cooked just right. The sauce fantastic. My wife had the fillet. She loved it. We both had dessert. Save room for the Austrian Strudel. I got the cheese. Next time I will get apple. Service is excellent. Quiet room with fireplace. Our favorite place now.
