The food was delicious and our waiter was excellent- friendly, knowledgable, and attentive. Don't bother going here after 8:30pm on a Saturday because all you will hear is stomping from the dance floor above your head and music. To top it off they play different music in the dining room- this just makes it worse. They did warn us about the noise but this was after we'd made our reservation and were already at the restaurant. Had we known ahead of time we wouldn't have dined on a Saturday or would have gone earlier in the evening.
We had an issue with coat check and the Assistant Manager on duty was dismissive about it. He eventually took some accountability for the issue although it still took several phone calls and 5 days to resolve.

We had a voucher for a 3 course dinner for 2. We gave this to our first hostess who displayed it on our table. No one explained how the voucher worked. When we asked, our server simply repeated the voucher, and then added the desert (which was not on the menu). When it was time for desert, he quickly listed off deserts such as chocolate cake, cheese cake etc. When asked what kind of chocolate cake or cheese cake, he simply repeated himself- just chocolate cake or "just cheesecake". He sounded bored and disinterested in us. the cheesecake came out smothered in tasteless berries

Tip and tax are added to your bill for the regular amount, but the service should also fit the tip. Our server ignored us all night other than to deliver the food.

Peppercorn Steak, Caprese Salad, desserts were absolutely perfect! (Osso bugo was slightly disappointing compared to most of their spectacular dishes).
Service was great but slightly confused... but they gave me a free Scotch afterwards so its all good!
Later in the evening there was a party upstairs which was quite noisy, but I guess you gotta expect that if you're dining on a Saturday night after 9pm.

I can not rave enough about the service our group of 6 received. The hostess was incredibly friendly and accommodating as were all of the wait staff. However, I was not really impressed with the dinner at all. I ordered the Caesar Salad...the dressing tasted bottled, my veal chop was cooked perfectly, however...the mushroom sauce was so salty that I had to scrape it off in order to eat the meat. Mashed potatoes were pasty, side Vegetables were steamed perfectly. Dessert was a stale piece of chocolate cake shaped like a two bite brownie but larger...that I guess had been microwaved because I did come across a warm spot in the middle...with a scoop of ice cream on top. The rest of the group had different food, but the same experience.

It was a magic evening; winter storm outside (one of many this winter) but inside: warm, friendly, romantically lit room with quiet soft music.
Our waiters were attentive, professional and very nice.
We will be back at the Doctor’s House to experience this great place during spring or summer.

Certainly enjoyed our experience last Sunday. It was a celebration of our 52 Anniversary and we were not disappointed.
The food was great and the selection was outstanding. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Had high expectations for this restaurant since I've heard great things and saw a few good reviews. However, my experience proved otherwise. Food was great but service was poor and I was overcharged.

I was pleasantly surprised with the look and ambiance of the place. The service was amazing. The food was very well prepared and our server was so friendly. I would definitely go there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great experience. I'm excited to see what it would look like in the summertime. It's definitely a gem in the lovely town of Kleingburg.

I've been meaning to try this restaurant out for ages, and finally had the chance to do so over Christmas. I was impressed with the service staff and their attentiveness. The food was excellent as can be expected. Overall, it was a very pleasurable dining experience and I'd definitely come again.

For an established fine dining restaurant I was very disappointed with the service. It was very slow and inattentive although the restaurant was not busy. Took over 15 minutes to take a drink order, appetizers and salads all came at the same time, just not what we expected. Wine list and menu on photocopied 8X11 paper?? Food and ambience are great, service needs attention.

We hadn't been for 5 years and thought we would give it another try. It started off well with us being shown to our table immediately...followed by no service for 20 minutes - no water, wine list...nothing. We were finally given a rumpled couple of photocopied sheets that constituted the wine list. The food on the "cold" table was adequate but in short supply or empty for a number of the dishes. The hot food was dismal - either nothing left in the hot trays (gave up waiting for spareribs) or inedible lumps of meat (dreadful lamb). Line up for pasta dishes was ridiculous. An automatic 15% gratuity was added - high for a buffet, particularly this dismal one. We would have happily tipped 20% because it was Christmas - but not for this.

Terrific setting for Christmas dinner, in a rustic building, with an outstanding buffet selection.
