Everytime we go to Sidney we ask ourselves why we don't come exclusively to this restaurant!! It is a gem in the York/East Berlin area with dishes that are original and far surpass what we get in some big cities that we frequent. Please give the chef a 2 thumbs up.... keeping doing what you are doing. We enjoy it so much ever visit!

The service is always spotty, but the delicious food makes up for it. This time though the split pea soup had a very good flavor, but the peas were hard. I was told that it was a new recipe.

Some of the best meals we’ve had in a long time!!! I like that it’s not a noisy restaurant, but it was almost too quiet. We felt awkward when we were laughing and chatting in the quiet.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service at Sidney's. I highly recommend it. Our only issue was an extraordinarily loud table of four on New Year's Eve. I know we went the only patrons who noticed. I think everyone was aware of how loud they were except them.

Great food and good service staff. Only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that it took an hour from when we ordered until the food was served. The kitchen is small and can’t handle a full house.

As usual, the food was delicious. We always get the pate, and the chef's pate is wonderful. There was a large party table in the same dining room, and they were very loud. The food is worth putting up with that though.

Third time dining at Sidney and I have to say, this was the best meal I have had. The seafood game is on point. Wine list is strong. Craft cocktails are delicious. Definitely check it out.

Some new menu items since our last visit (sorry it was so long)... but you can NEVER go wrong with fresh oysters... the trout was caught that morning, and the duck was incredible as always.

I had the wild mushroom and escargot ravioli that was one of the best appetizers I've ever had. For my main entree I had the duck with farro, prunes, walnuts and butternut squash puree. OUTSTANDING.

The food was excellent, we were delighted to taste new items on the menu. The duck was exquisite, prepared to perfection. My husband had the trout which was outstanding.
So pleasantly surprised to try these new items, we look froward to returning.
We hope to see items on the menu change often.

My son and I had squash soup, pate, oysters on the half, prime rib and the sirloin steak. Absolutely everything was perfect! We will be back in force with friends & family.

I know a number of foodies in Harrisburg who are very interested, and they asked lots of questions. I gave Sidneys a thumbs up 5 stars. Everything here is made in house.

My daughters were in town and we wanted foie gras ! Dinner was excellent. We sat outside and a branch was encumbering our daughter. After a short while and table maneuvering, the bar tender came over and took his pocket knife and chopped it off! We didn't even ask! Stephanie was a great gal and really tried to please us. She was fantastic. Again, as always, we so enjoyed the dinner and the treats from the chef. Even the martinis were fab and someone actually stuffed the olives with blue cheese, our fav. Thanks for all you do to provide a very special night out.

I made reservations to eat in the tavern several weeks in advance of the 20th. When we arrived we were told the tavern was closed for a private party and we were seated in the fireplace room. Would have appreciated a note saying the tavern was closed in advance of our reservation date. We would have rescheduled. Pork was overcooked. Trout and oysters were excellent.

Our dining experience could not have been better. The complimentary glasses of champagne for our anniversary were a value added touch. We are still talking about the quality of our dinners. Stephanie, our server, was very engaging, congenial, and professional. All wait staff dressed extremely well, table linen / napkins pressed and bright, glassware clean and gleaming, etc., etc. We will definitely plan on return visits.

RUDE......This review makes me sad. The son of the owner is the bartender/manager at Sidney. He is absolutely rude...has no idea how to speak to customers and frankly does not care if customers return or not. The restaurant was 80 degrees inside! Everyone was super uncomfortable. The owners son told customers to stop complaining. He said “come in the winter if you don’t like it”.

We have been patronizing for years. We will not go back.

The chef makes delicious soups. Yesterday's soup was made with salsify, which I had never had, and it was interesting to try something new. The service, which is usually spotty, was superb. We can't wait to go back.

Salmon was over cooked and dressing on Caesar salad tasted too much like mayonnaise. Pricey for the quality of food we received. We’ve been here numerous times, so hopefully this was just an “off night”..
