    We have visited this restaurant on many occasions, we have always found it excellent overall.Food and service and the ambiance is foremost at this facility. The only complaint is the prices seem to keep rising and the entries are al alecarte. I would suggest you look at this area. Also you should really have a non-alcohol beer on the menu. Most establishments do have one or more.

    The David Duncan House is a very unique venue. The restaurant is inside a big Victorian house on huge grounds. It's very centrally located, easy to get to, right off the highway. The food was great, the waiters were attentive, the ambiance was perfect. We specified that we were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant treated us with a big piece of cake, complete with a candle to celebrate the occasion. That was a very nice touch. The only drawback I could think of was the many flights of stairs to climb, it may not be ideal for older folks who have difficulty climbing stairs. Other than that, it was a perfect place to enjoy a nice quiet dinner.

    We've had such a lovely time at The David Duncan House. The staff was amazing and the food was great. One dish, the risotto, was too salty for us, but the rest of the dishes (especially the steak) was brilliant. I had noted on my original reservation that it was to celebrate my parents' wedding anniversary, and David Duncan brought them a celebratory slice of chocolate cake without me asking them beforehand if they could do something at the end of our meal. Overall it was a lovely experience, thank you to David Duncan's team for making it memorable for my parents.

    I can't say enough of the in house garlic bread. Which is to die for, Our waiter Chris was always on hand re-filling our glasses. My friend had the lamb which was superbly cooked to perfection(Medium rare). This is a real gem of a restaurant.

    We ordered New York Steak and it was really bad! They try to cover the taste by over seasoning. It was awful. Not worth $500.

    Overall, everything is quite salty and no one ask how was our food until we were finished. We didn't say anything because we already finished the plate. However, the steak was perfect though.

    Great but honestly our another shrimp for the price. No one eats with 3 people. Having 4 makes sense and values us as paying customers. Even if it was dinner for 2. 3 shrimps still doesn’t make sense and The place is very very dark needs a bit of brightness. food was very good but onion rings greasy. Other than the above would come back!

    I hate spending money at restaurants because so often you are disappointed at not getting your moneys worth. Not so at David Duncan House. Everything was superb. Great food, great service, super-friendly staff, and a low level of noise (I have a hearing problem but it was not a problem at DD House).

    I have always enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at DDH. Whether it's the bar or the dining room, I feel relaxed. (I have no idea what it's like during business lunch time, as I tend to go off-peak hours.) Service is always good, the quality of food matches my sense of "excellent". IMHO, the Cesar Salad for Two is worth a visit. Sometimes we drop in for a glass of wine and the Cesar alone. Well, plus a desert and a scotch. Oh yes: the front or back patios work well on a sunny day.

    First time experiencing the Duncan House and it was quite memorable. Decided to celebrate a wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly and the service was fast and efficient. When it came to the food, it didn't disappoint. The food was fresh and carefully prepared. It was flavourful from the first bite to the last. We didn't have room for dessert but the staff surprised us with a dessert to celebrate. How could we say no? Would highly recommend, particularly if you're celebrating a special occassion.
