Setting was great! Bar atmosphere good too. However, for management and servers to constantly tell you that things are delayed because there was a wedding going on is unsatisfactory. I assume they knew they had booked a wedding and they should have staffed appropriately instead of feeling that telling people you have to wait etc was the appropriate solution. Food did not get prepared the way we asked. It was good but still would have preferred to have it the way we wanted it and not the way the cook did it for whatever reason. I would suggest maybe not going on Saturdays when weddings are usually planned maybe Friday is better.

It was a delight returning to Kimberton after a few years absence, everything was just perfect! We enjoyed a very relaxed, comfortable evening, with great ambiance (all the working fireplaces adds a very special touch on a cold March evening).

Thanks for your hospitality!

Amazing food. I get a sense that the man at the front door is mean to the waitresses (and that made us really uncomfortable) but our waitress was amazing. We don't get out very much so this was the PERFECT date night! We will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful quaint classy restaurant. Had an awesome evening tonight here with my boyfriend. It was not crowded as it was a Sunday which was nice and relaxing with no noise. Our table was romantic by a fireplace. We shared a specialty salad and the dressing was so delicious. We both ordered filet mignon which was so tender and tasty and the string beans and mashed potatoes were perfectly cooked.
Been here many times and have never been disappointed. Was here one year for New Year's Eve dinner and even held my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. Always a great place to go and highly recommend it.

My wife and I love the Kimberton Inn. We’ve been visiting the restaurant for over 20 years now. Our last trip did not disappoint. Even though a wedding party reserved the entire main dining room, we we seated upstairs and the service and food were excellent to spite the big party going on downstairs. Tip: for intimate dining request a table upstairs next to the fire place when making a reservation. What you might not know is you can also have a private party for 20 max in the basement wine cellar. We reserved that area for an intimate graduation party last year.

Our most recent meal consisted of the filet and crab cakes and both were outstanding. My wife had the mushroom risotto as an appetizer and it was great.

I’ve never been disappointed with a meal. Keep in mind that the restaurant is a historical building with low ceilings and old charm. Try it out. You won’t be disappointed.

I knew the ambiance would be great, and the food would be traditional and delicious, but I was pleasantly surprised by the cocktail and wine program. We were able to enjoy a very rare wine for a reasonable price, and the cocktails were on par with top (competing) bartenders in my area. Well done!

The Kimberton Inn is understated perfection in all the best ways! Elegant without being fussy, refined without being pretentious, and perhaps most importantly delicious without being trendy. If you are looking for a special evening with superb, expertly prepared cuisine delivered by a caring and sincere wait staff, don't hesitate to make this one of your new favorite restaurants. It is now one of ours! I need also mention that there's a wonderful bar (so much atmosphere!) and a very impressive wine list. Having lived in France for several years, we were absolutely delighted to find Crément by the glass.

We got a gift certificate for dinner a few months ago. We tried to book around the holidays but had no luck getting a table. We finally booked a reservation and it was worth the wait. The lamb chops and duck were delicious. The table setting and the wood burning fireplaces were elegant. The old bar and wood work is charming. Service was impeccable. There is plenty of free parking. It was a 5 star experience that I would highly recommend.

This restaurant has been a favorite of our for many years. Tonight, my wife and I enjoyed a lovely Valentine's dinner. The food is always very good and the experience is always very special. Service is excellent, both friendly and professional. It's always an extra bonus to be here in the winter, when the fireplaces are going. We had a wonderful time!

This is a nice place for a fancy night out, great food and drinks, however it is pricey for what you get.
They could definitely up their dessert game, a Hot fudge sunday for $8.50 is a little ridiculous, and the portions of what you get for what you pay is very small. For the amount of money and the amount of food I would rather go to Seven Stars inn. Good for an older crowd, we are in our mid 30's and were some of the younger customers there on a Saturday night.

Very accommodating staff. As we waited at the bar for our table, the bartender was very attentive and checked on our table twice ( of his own valuation). The food was terrific, the service was terrific and the atmosphere was out standing. Of course, this is what we have come to expect from the Kimberton Inn.

There was some confusion by me on what they call, "High Top" seating which meant high chairs in the bar. I did not know what it meant but the owner was very helpful and replaced the "high tops" with a normal table in view of a disability. Great and friendly response ...much appreciated...
