Had a great dinner. Food and ambiance was excellent. Great fine dinning place.
Service was spotty with rather long absences throughout the evening. Diners were split between the outside porch and the bar area. The friendly and apologetic wait staff was too few to handle all the tables in two locations. Service is the difference between an extraordinary evening and an OK evening. That said, the food and wine were awesome.
Excellent time but had to ask for basic table offerings like salt and pepper
Went for Easter brunch and the buffet was very good with lots of food options. Our only complaint was that we were charged for a bottle of water when we said still instead of sparkling. Guess we should have indicated "tap"...
It’s a lovely setting, near the former golf course, serving creatively presented and delicious food. Nice service. A favorite, for sure!
Our first time at Sidney will not be our last. The service we received at the bar was superb, and the food was just as phenomenal. We can’t wait until our next dinner at Sidney.
We’ve been to Sidney numerous times and have had a great time at each. As usual, the service was stellar with real heads-up attention. Only real issue was that a serving of monkfish was somewhat overcooked and wound-up a little dry and didn’t really pick up on the seasonings in the dish. Peta and hummus, along with Brussel sprouts and mushrooms were all to share and everyone fought over the last bits. My Pekin Duck was absolutely the best I’ve ever had — tender, flavorful, and just the perfect temperature, on the rare side. My whipped potatoes we so perfect, I almost thought they were fake! My wife’s serving of swordfish with white beans was superb, I was told. The fish was moist and picked up the light seasoning very well. A generous piece of Black Angus sirloin required a serious “doggie-bag”, and a serving of Coho salmon was nicely paired with spaghetti squash and a thyme au-jus. Everything was washed-down with a wonderful, modestly priced bottle of brut sparkling wine. Perfect! No desert at Sidney, however. We retired by my place for some fruit and glasses of Taylor Fladgate. Happy-happy!
Always a wonderful experience. We always come back every year for our anniversary, we we're so spoiled when we lived in the neighborhood and could have more often. We look forward to the drive up and the meal every year. We are never disappointed and service is always incredible, as with the meal!
Sidney at Willoughby Run is a best of class restaurant with veteran culinary Master Chef Niel Annis at the helm. The inventive seasonal menu never fails to impress. This trip I tried the 8oz sirloin with a bacon and potato gratin, winter greens and burgundy wine sauce. The steak was perfectly cooked medium rare the way I like it. Dessert was double chocolate cake. Another winner! I have eaten here at least 10 times since the restaurant opened and the quality, presentation and service are always exemplary. 👍🏻🥇Highly recommend!
Sidney's at Willoughby Run is always a wonderful experience. With it being on the outskirts of Gettysburg you can enjoy a quiet evening, food prepared to perfection, presentation is very eye appealing and service is never rushed.
It was our first time there. Food and service were excellent.
Greeted warmly at the door. Seated immediately. Took a long time to get started with drinks. Much longer to get our food ordered. Food took so long contemplated leaving. Maybe 2 servers for 10 tables.
Manhattan pricey for Makers Mark. Martini was was fine. Roasted Brussel sprouts were excellent. Monkfish main dish way over cooked. Seared tuna salad was very good.
Food was excellent!!! Top notch one of the better fine dining experiences in Gettysburg
Service was extremely slow and at times seemed non existant
Our son goes to college in the area and when we visit we look for new dining options on the area- this is a great find, good food in a pleasant setting. We all liked the lobster ravioli!!
What a disappointment! This restaurant came highly recommended from friends and I thought it would be a lovely pre-Valentine dinner. Not so. I questioned why we were seated in the informal bar area (placemats instead of tablecloths) and I was told that "the servers like to fill up the bar tables first." What happened to the customer's preference?
We are an elderly couple, obviously dressed for a special evening out, and we were given a bar area table seated next to a two-year old!
The service was generally fine and the food was reasonably good (not extraordinary as I had expected), but this was not fine dining. For the money, the Inn at Herr Ridge is preferable in every way, including food.
Everything was perfect! The server was extremely helpful and informative. The Ravioli and Grilled Monk Fish not only tasted amazing but were perfectly fulfilling. The timing was perfect. The amazing, WARM, COOL, AND ARCTIC CAPPUCCINO was absolutely scrumptious and was the ultimate dessert to top for an overall incredible dining experience for our date night! I highly Sydney At Willougby's!
As always, Sidney didn't disappoint - the food was super fresh, my burger cooked perfectly and the desserts not only looked beautiful, they tasted that way. Four of us had the burgers, all cooked differently and we were all happy with the results. Our one 'outlier' kept raving about her chicken wrap and home made chips. The rest of us all enjoyed our french fries.
The food and its presentation was excellent. However the ambience of the restaurant was poor. We arrived at a table and were seated in an inappropriate space with no table Linens. The wait staff tied to be friendly but was very unsophisticated compared to the food offerings. It takes away from such a gourmet meal to be in a setting that is very mediocre.
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it did.
Terrific experience, as always! Friendly and knowledgeable server made it a memorable dinner.
Whenever we want something different or special, we go to Sydney at Willoughby Run. There is always something unique on the menu plus some standard fare. The flavors are wonderful and the presentation is excellent. The desserts look too good to eat but they are delicious. The drink selection is varied with something for everyone.
As always food was delicious. Excellent service with understanding of one guest's food sensitivities.
Consistently excellent food& service! A dining oasis in a tourist area (Gettysburg) with no other decent restaurant! Lunch and dinner selections reliably good, with caring wait staff. Kudos to chef Neil Annis . Also like the original Sidney in East Berlin, PA.
I am always pleased by my experience here. It is clearly the best restaurant in Gettysburg and our favorite.
The ambiance of the dining room could have been improved if there had been space without the bar in the room. There are two very large banquet rooms off the small dining room/bar that I'm sure those are used for events. But it would seem that somehow a small area of one of those rooms could be used for the regular restaurant dining?
The food, ambiance, beverage offerings and service were all stellar, as is usually the case. Only negative is that for a vegetarian, options are quite limited. Highly recommend Sidney, though. Special place.
My wife is gluten free and they were very accommodating to this.
We celebrated our 22nd anniversary at Sidney and it was amazing. Our service was amazing and everything we ate was incredible.
Excellent, as always, from arrival to dessert. The food is always top notch and the service and attention to detail are impeccable. Friendly and accommodating.
This was our first time here, combining a birthday celebration event/dinner that was nothing less than "Top Gun" in all aspects of dining experience. Our waitress provided service during our meal that was second to none along with some jovial conversation that kept the evening spirited. From appetizers to desert the food superb, with wonderful selections to choose from.
If I were to add a recommendation for consideration to this review, it would be to add lighting to the Sidney at Willoughby Run sign located at the entrance on Rt. 30, so that it's visible to patrons in the evening who aren't familiar to the area.
We look forward to our next visit.
We had a delightful lunch -- fabulous seared tuna -- followed by excellent Irish coffee. It was a memorable meal!
Outstanding evening. When you want "Special", this is it.
As usual, everything was fantastic from the food to the service.
I have eaten here on many occasions and I am never disappointed. Great personalized service, creative menu, and excellently prepared food.
My wife and I chose to have dinner here for our Anniversary, after reading a blog review by a friend. We enjoyed the entire experience. We were seated in the bar area, which had some nice light jazz playing in the background. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. As it was our anniversary we were treated a few small extras compliments of the chef, which were greatly appreciated. My wife and I chose the Brussel Sprouts from the sharing menu, and they were fantastic. The butternut squash, walnuts and macerated cranberries included in the dish really set this apart from plain brussel sprouts. My wife chose to build her own burger, which she said was one of the best she's ever had. I had the Panko breaded Barramundi with Potato gnocchi and fresno chili sauce which was fantastic. The desserts were just as wonderful. My wife loved the Vanilla Creme Brulee with mixed nut biscotti, and enjoyed every bite of a cheesecake with fig compote, roasted hazelnuts, and a honey granita. We will certainly return, and have already recommended this spot to friends.
I've been to Sidney's about 5 times ans have yet to be disappointed. Every year we have our office Christmas party there. It's always an enjoyable evening.
The food was the best it's been in a long while - the barramundi was perfection! - but the service was lackluster. Waitress hadn't tasted most of the menu items we asked about, nor was she personable. The waiter who had the table next to us was more useful since he described the specials to his table and we could hear, where our waitress could barely remember them.
My husband and I ate here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we are both so glad we did. The staff were all very nice and attentive and we were greeted with celebratory champagne for our anniversary. We were very impressed by the plating and presentation of all dishes as well as the amazing taste as well. We both enjoyed the beef brisket and it was tender, and melted in your mouth. The sides were mashed potatoes and carrots and even the sides were just incredible. The flavors all complimented each other and made for a very well balanced meal. For dessert we enjoyed the chocolate cake and creme brûlée and both were spectacular. We will definitely be returning the soonest chance we get. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
