 (Washington DC)·Dined 3 days ago

The food was amazing! Everything was cooked perfectly. Our server was not the best. She wasn’t bad but not very attentive after our food arrived. This is definitely an early dinning spot. Our reservation was for 7:45 and we were among the last people in the restaurant when we finished at 10:30.

We were trying to think of a place to go and had been to Kimberton Inn years ago and decided to go again. It’s an old Chester County inn and the decor has not been updated at all. However, the most important thing, the food, was outstanding. My husband’s rib eye was cooked perfectly as was my daughter’s duck breast. My salad with almond crusted chicken was also very good. The parking lot is awful and the decor could use some serious updating ( even historic inns need updated), but I would highly recommend it for the wonderful food and the very good, friendly service.

The ambiance was perfect, the food was ok. My $42.00 lobster tails looks like large shrimp and we're not tasty. Served on what looked like left over vegetable soup. No greens, no potatoes, just two small bread sticks. The service was the worst I have EVER experienced. Our waitress did not tell us her name, never refilled our soda or iced tea all of which were empty half way through the meal. We should have been there 60 to 90 minutes but we're there close to three hours because she was so slow to take and deliver our food. Dessert took forever as well. Very disappointed , will never go back, my friend agreed and will not recommend this place to anyone.

Dinner was so so! Lobster over cooked and for 105.00 a person the value was not there. Wasn’t sweet tender lobster. And was 1 1/4 Ibs . Would expect more for price. Also they rushed you! No time between courses.

The Kimberton Inn is always excellent. Jeff and his staff always go above and beyond for thier customers. We celebrated New Years Eve yearly on Saturday and had a wonderful time and the food was exceptional. After our meal we sat at the bar for a night cap. A romantic evening at the Kimberton Inn. Thank you!

The Kimberton Inn has become our family's go to spot for a nice holiday meal and we plan another visit in the summer months. Since myself and many of my siblings live a far distance from our mother's house we travel back to spend Christmas with her. Great food, beautiful ambiance. Kimberton is lovely without being pretentious.

We had my wife and mother-in-law for a pre-Christmas dinner. It was very nice. The hostess/staff was very helpful to move our reserved table to the first floor so my mother-in-law could avoid the stairs. Loved the fireplaces and ambiance.

There is no place better to be on a cold Chester County night than the Kimberton Inn. With the fireplaces ablaze (real wood fires), it's a must see, especially during the holidays.

I know they were busy the night we dined there, what with a full house and a holiday party in progress, but we felt a bit rushed. One thing you want to do while you are there is drink in the atmosphere of the old inn, and we felt we got less of a chance to do that being rushed. Otherwise I would have given them an "outstanding" for all categories.

Jeff runs an excellent restaurant and is assisted by his great manager Jay as well as a highly competent long term staff who are highly attentive. The staff is great down to the newest busser. Anything short of perfection is unacceptable to Jeff.

The food, ambiance and service were outstanding. The Kimberton Inn is a historic location. The rack of lamb was great as was the salmon. And their risotto is second to none.

Service was terrible. Waitress served the men their wine before the women. Our waitress forgot to take one of our orders. Forgot to get me a refill on wine. Waiting along time for our food. Never saw the general manager. We had to track down our waitress. I know it is busy holidays but don't over book if you cant give good service. When you pay those type of prices you deserve good service. Would never get that type of poor service at Seasons 52 or Capital Grill.

We celebrated my wife's birthday with two sumptuous meals starting with the best salad ever and a delicious shrimp cocktail followed by swordfish steaks for the both us which turned out to be the best we've ever tasted! The special dessert was amazing. The Kimberton Inn is the place to dine when celebrating any occasion in life! Thank you all for a very fine dining experience!

I recommend this place to all that will listen to me. Jeff and his team continue to execute well every time we attend.

We enjoyed our meal and the food was good. The service was very good in the beginning of our meal, but we waited over 30 minutes for our dessert. Also, one of the men in the group had to get up and find the waiter to ask about his drink (he had been waiting over 20 minutes for it). The restaurant is beautiful and we will come back again.
