The food is always excellent and this might best restaurant in the area. They have a great variety of options on the menu from either land or sea. The complaint I have is sometimes the wait can be a little excessive. Bananas Foster table side, the best!
Love it as usual. Great food, ambiance and value. Very romantic and great for dressing up.
Very good, as always. The restaurant pleased everyone from age 10 to 55.
Appetizers were great drinks were excellent soup and salad were great we had the main course was the stuffed lobster with crabmat lobster was tasteless and the crabmeat had to much filler in it, both of us didn't really enjoy it. Other wise we will be back but won't get that again great atmosphere.
Special Valentine's day with another couple. Health issues for both couples overcome during 2017.
Visited on New Year's Eve for the first time. Returned on Valentine's Day because we enjoyed the experience so much on New Year's. Excellent food, very pleasant service, and very nice setting. Our dinner was pleasant and unrushed. I would go again. Also found the Open Table app to be very easy to use.
When our waitress (Veronica) was taking our order she wasn't writing it down and I when I commented she said oh maybe I should. Ok that was the down fall. I let go she took my wine glass before I was finished. She brings our entree's and mine was completely wrong. We also ordered salads and she goes I will bring your salad while you wait for your dinner and looks at my husband and goes do you still want your salad. we had already been waiting a long time for our meal and he said no that is okay. He ordered the queen prime rib medium rare and I guess she forgot to right down the medium part but he ate it anyway. I ordered bake potato with my dinner and received mash potatoes after she got it wrong the first time we reminded her again and she still brought me mashed potatoes. My daughter had joined us and she had to leave before my half correct dinner arrived. So we will not be back and we still have a $50 gift card to use. I was expecting a great time and dinner and it was ruined by the very poor service.
We really like the Mendenhall Inn. My wife had the sirloin steak and it was excellent. I had the porterhouse steak which was the special for the evening and for the price, I was disappointed. It was a very large cut, but there was more fat and tendons than I expected. I know a porterhouse has that which gives it its flavor, but this was very difficult to eat. I do have to say the sauce was very good. The rest of the meal was fine.
Mendenhall Inn Restaurant - fine dining at its best, pro servers, superior entrees
In a separate review, we note that we had an average experience at the Inn which is part of this property. The restaurant is an absolute homerun on so many levels. The ambience of the main dining room is perfect with the fireplace, fine linens and seating options. The waitstaff are superb in their knowledge, timely service and willingness to make you have a memorable dining experience. Tuesday is “Fish Night” so I had the cod served in a baking dish and blended with asiago cheese. It was out-of-the-oven hot, tasty and superb. The mashed potatoes suffered from being room temp. The accompanying small Caesar salad was a nice bonus to the entree. My partner had the 8 oz filet mignon. It was tasty, high quality but undercooked at medium rare when she ordered medium. Because it was our anniversary, we were served a complimentary ice cream, fresh fruit, chocolate lava cake dessert to share. If you are in the Longwood Gardens/Chadds Ford, PA area, don’t miss this dining gem!!
