The service was impeccable. The room was terrifically designed in the manner of the 18th century. It was very comfortable. The menu is American with steak, fish, seafood, but done extremely well.

We had the most beautiful table on the (inside) terrace room overlooking the little stone house out back perfectly illuminated with fairy lights. Dinner was great as always and the service was attentive but respectful of our desire to sit and chat. Love it there!

Wonderful Friday evening dinner with friends. Food was excellent, and service was very attentive without being overbearing. We were not rushed at all. Definitely will dine here again.

Maureen was our waitstaff. She was fun, informative and very efficient. Enjoyed to Thai Brussel Sprouts and the soup of the day which was a lobster tomato bisque. Great favor but a bit shy on the lobsters and an over abundance of the tortellini. Desserts were to die for!

I very much enjoyed the snapper soup and lamb loin. Service was friendly if a little unpolished. The bar seemed to run a little behind compared to the kitchen. I don't want to be too hard on them - my wife and I enjoyed the experience, and would return. I am comparing it to my previous experiences at the Dilworthtown Inn, which was just a notch higher in my opinion. Sadly, it closed last year after the death of the owner.

This place absolutely oozes ambiance (In a positive way). It's kitschy, it's authentic, it's great, in a way only an old classic building like this can be. Nice fire on the hearth, nice cozy tables. Great service. Great food.

My husband and I had a dinner reservation at 5:45 PM for Valentines dinner. My husband arrived very early and waited for me at the bar. The Maître d’ told me when I arrived, about 10 minutes prior to our reservation, that we were already checked in. So I told him I’d be waiting for our table with my husband at the bar. It gone on to 6 PM and still no word about our table. My husband reminded the Maitre D again that we were at the bar and he said “I know”. Then I went to check on our table. As I was standing there another couple came in that the manager appeared to know and told him that their reservation was for 6:30 and at this time it was 6 PM. He replied that he could take them right back to their table. I spoke up and said that our reservation was for 5:45 and we haven’t been seated yet, at which time the maître d’ said that he told my husband our table is ready whenever we were, which he said no thing to us. Of course, now my husband and I look like fools in front of everyone. I think he said that to save face in front of his boss, imo. To top it off our food Took nearly 45 minutes to come out from the kitchen. At least our food was delicious.

I was staying at the Tavern and had friends for dinner. Everything went well. Setting up the reservation was pleasant and they responded well when my flight delayed my arrival. The choices of food was excellent. My mushroom bisque and beef Wellington were delicious. My quests were pleased with their meal as well. The wine choice good be extended to match the quality of the food. We were able to have a long and pleasant conversation. I will go again

The General Warren Inn continues to be in the top echelon of fine dining spots in Chester County. The impeccable building exterior and interior set the stage for another wonderful experience. The bar and bartender Jayne were welcoming and comfortable.
Every course was outstanding- which is a word used for-- above amazing and awesome. The plates/bowls all left the table with barely any remnants. There were four in our group enjoying filet and seafood in addition to having cheesecake and pumpkin tart deserts.
We have The General Warren on the radar for fine dining and have never been disappointed.

Met an old friend for lunch who I hadn't seen in years! We ended up staying until 3:45! The staff was fabulous and left us totally alone, never mentioning we were over staying our welcome. This is my go to for a beautiful lunch!

The food was excellent. The noise level was a bit loud for our table of 4 even though we were in a corner of one of the dinning rooms. The service started out fine, but then mistakes were made i.e. we had to ask for bread twice before we got any. A steak ordered med-rare to medium was brought out rare i.e. uncooked in the middle. It had to be sent back. I asked for a fine bottle of wine to be decanted. It was and put on a wheeled table near us. I had to serve our own wine with each pour. I bit better service given the place, ambiance and prices would have been nice. So, great food, but a little disappointed in the amenities.

My companion loved the filet mignon...cooked perfectly; however, the fruit de mer seemed very bland. The crab had little flavor. Dessert was every good.
However, service was poor. After receiving drinks, waited an interminable time for order to be taken...had to ask for bread after being told by the server that she would bring bread. Way too many many minutes passed between courses and had to ask for check.
