The waiter was good however a few of the servers seemed inexperienced. They brought the plates of food with their fingers on the top of the plate. The food was ok, not great.
The music and atmosphere were pleasant. Unfortunately, we won't be going back

The entire evening was filled with delicious wine and cocktails
The entrees were nicely plated and delectable and creative combinations of foods
We were satisfied with the amount of food so we didn’t order any desserts.
Our waitress Nancy and wait staff Jamie were very attentive and superb.
Our only suggestion would be to upgrade the bread basket
Rolls were nondescript
And butter was too cold
So many other options
Overall a great night out
Thanks

Ate outside rear of building and on a terrace--great ambiance. Prices are high but there are sandwiches and salads if you are not too hungry. Wonderful food.

The General Warren is an upscale restaurant where many people (including us) go for a special occasion. It did not disappoint this time. The food is very good. We sat on the porch (glassed in) and it was nice. However, there was one loud table which distracted from the ambiance of the porch until they left.

Food and service excellent! And we had a nice corner for our anniversary dinner. Appreciate the history of the General Warren but think maybe a carpet upgrade is called for so as to not look tired.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was attentive and quite helpful with the menu. Our two entrees (scallops and a nightly special) were both well presented and delicious. We also opted for deserts (Key Lime creme brûlée and brownie bottom cheesecake were appropriately indulgent. This is not a restaurant to visit if you’re on a budget—or a diet—but it certainly represents the upper strata of dining in Chester County—we will be back sometime!

Amazing atmosphere and experience. We were seated downstairs on the covered terrace and what was a very cold + rainy night, made so much better by the heaters and fireplaces. The service was impeccable. Highly recommend the Lobster and Waffle appetizer and Beef Wellington entree. It was our first time here, but most definitely won't be our last! We can't wait to come back.

Always enjoy our time at General Warren. Favorite menu items are Admiral Vernon Burger, Crab Cakes, Scallops and Salmon. Delicious and all the waiters are accommodating. The manager, Patrick, always comes around to make sure the diners are satisfied and happy with their meals.

The whole experience was wonderful starting with the moment we were greeted by staff. Our waiter, Eric, was excellent and offered great dinner recommendations. We each loved our selection. The wine list is extensive and had one of our favorites.

We plan on going again soon!

The food was very good. I had the bronzini (fish) and my husband had the beef Wellington. I only gave 4 stars as the fish was delicious, but a tad overdone. The cheesecake dessert was to die for. Wonderful. We ate at a table outside which was near the road so it was a little noisy. Eric, our waiter, was excellent. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
