Rib Eye Steak
golden fried calamari, baby arugula, lemon garlic aioli
Great experience. Went there many times as group, the server remembered the orders correctly, never give wrong dish to wrong ppl.
Sat people directly behind me, my husband had said that is not 6 feet. I think they had difficulty with spacing people. Not everyone was wearing a mask, that was disappointing
Amazing food, great service, and perfect ambience. Will definitely keep coming back to the Duncan House!
Always a great time whenever we have dine here at David duncan house!
I go here every year for my birthday and haven’t had one disappointment yet! So professional. THE FOOD AMAZING!! Highly recommended
I would recommend this restaurant with some reservations.
The next time I dine here, I'll be careful not to order any meat. The lamb chops I ordered during my visit on the last Oct-04-2020 were or at least seemed to have been reheated.
Understandably, the current situation created by the Covid-19 has disrupted all of the hospitality industry, however, restaurants should be encouraged in providing the best possible service and food quality.
Although the restaurant was only half full, and the second floor was actually nearly empty, they still placed a party next to our table despite our express wish for isolation.
The waiter forgot to offer us drinks -- this has never happened to us before! And there were more waiters around than occupied tables, so no excuse.
Food was amazing no complaints had the sea food platter worth every penny won’t be disappointed!!!!!!
The food was great and so was the service. I was just a little disappointed as I called beforehand to let them know that we were celebrating my girlfriends birthday, but it was not acknowledged by my servers and we did not receive the dessert that was promised. I wanted it to be a surprise but nothing was done.
Had a really nice meal... and going to come back closer to Christmas
Tried Chateaubriand Bouquetière (for two). One of the best we have had.
Their website should reflect the "Covid-19" menu. Was disappointed to find that most of the items I wanted were not on menu. We wanted chateaubriand but after we ordered it were advised they didn't have any more. The lobster tail was mushy & I had to send it back. They kindly offered a replacement, I chose scallops which were delicious. However, they threw away my potato & veg with the lobster and there were no more potatoes available. We were given another order of mushrooms to replace my veg. They did give us a free piece of cake for our anniversary, which was very nice.
beautiful house，quite place，food is good and very nice service
Food was just as we expected. Totally worth the money spent. The atmosphere is very sophisticated so as the service. We really enjoyed the outdoor patio and will definitely go back to experience indoor dining as well.
Just awful.....Chateaubriand came out more like stew or roast beef than a proper Chateaubriand, which should be roasted in the oven then finished table side with flambe and vegetables.....certainly not worth $150......just not good at all.
Caeser salad was overdressed and again not done tableside.....
$300 and not worth anything. We left most of the food on the table...even the bread was dry and tasteless.....
If you can't meet your normal standards, you should not serve the food to us like that!
Waiters not very friendly. Item ordered after 15 minutes told not available. Item picked I ordered medium received medium well. Returned My meal so wife waited for me which give her a cold meal. We actually had to ask for our dishes to be removed from the table on completion. It wasn’t a happy 38th anniversary.
This is a good restaurant. I have eaten here many times. However, this time my rib steak was unevenly cooked. I had ordered my steak rare, but the outside portion was rare and the middle was almost raw. (Past blue rare even).
One of my favorite places to chill with friends and families, highly recommended!!!!
We had ordered the table side ceases salad for 2 and we didn’t get them at service from our waiter. He charged us for the experience but never received it. Then the manager told us they don’t do it during Covid but my in laws had it 2 weeks prior and the waiter didn’t even tell us.
Food was delicious, but quite expensive. Should include sides for that price. Service was great but the place should be more suited to allow mobility for those disabled. Too many stairs.
Great place, great food! Celebrating my husbands birthday.
considering the pandemic. we had a great time for our 17th wedding anniversary food was out of this world and the baklava cheesecake was to die for !! Thanks again DDH
Had the lobster tail and it was rubbery
Cesar salad was excellent and the calamari
Food and service was good. Some concerns about the face masks worn by servers... many staff were wearing the clear plastic style which do not prevent particulate spread, only redirect around the mask. Surgical or cloth masks would be a safer option.
Amazing food and service! Definitely would recommend! Beautiful atmosphere.. The food tasted amazing. The service was quick and accommodating. Loved this restaurant definitely going back to try more.
Food & service always excellent...can’t wait to go back!
Service was disappointing- cocktail order was mixed up. Had to ask twice for water to be replentished. Waitress did not demonstrate interest in clientele.
Outstanding enjoyed the evening food and drinks were great
This place was very good before pandemic , now it's very bad
Amazing food, service and ambiance. Only disappointment was our dessert to go. When we got home and opened the small cardboard box we were surprised at how tiny the cheesecake was for $15 and presentation was Lacking. If we went back again we would not order the dessert.
As usual everything was spectacular!
Professional and pleasant service.
Everything cooked to perfection. We had a GF allergy and the Chef accommodated us with a risotto instead of the regular pasta!!
Lamb chops are to die!
Highly recommend this place. So beautiful and romantic. The food is next level amazing!
Great food! A wonderful evening with my husband! We enjoyed the ambiance and service. We will definitely come again and bring friends!
Great food... great waitress...fabulous atmosphere
Everything was beyond excellent. Unbelievable service. Missing the old Duncan House garlic bread though!
Good food, good service and very enjoyable tasty dinner.
The service was impeccable! They were very helpful in getting my elderly father up a few stairs and they gave us a wonderfully big table so it was easy for him to get in and out. The food, as always, was delicious and the servers were most pleasant. They even surprised us with a complimentary dessert and a candle for his birthday! We always love coming to the David Duncan house as they treat us like royalty and it's an extra special event and not just dinner out.
Some of the food could have been more flavourful. One of the steaks wasn’t warm when brought to the table.
Great meal and great service made.for an excellent anniversary for my bride and I.
our friend recommended this restaurant to us, it was gorgeous inside, the food was amazing and the service was none other than superb! thank you for making my husband's birthday a very special one!
