Excellent oasis of food and ambiance located in the quaint town of East Berlin. Definitely should be on your list of culinary destinations. It favorably competes with restaurants in DC and Baltimore.

A great restaurant for many years. Never disappoints me. A creative menu and wine list which is unusual for this area, and the new wine dinner series holds great promise as well - something badly needed in this part of the world.

We always get the pate’, and however the salmon is prepared, is the way I love it. Could use more IPA’s, but try ginger pear snap. Tied with the food is our favorite staff, Dianne. We always feel welcome!

We were very pleased with the service and the food was excellent!! I can truthfully say that this was the finest meal that my wife and I have had at a Resturant in a very long time. We've already told a lot of people about the great experience we had at Sidney's.

While we were the only 4 people in the restaurant during this time period 12:30-2:30 - the wait service was just ok. We had to constantly signal our waiter to get what we needed. The food was very very good and we all loved our food but one person found a dead fly under her lettuce leaf at the end of the meal. They took it off our bill but whoever plated our food was not paying attention. Would definitely go back.

Service was very slow, but wasn’t very busy. Waiter propped open front door and a cold breeze blew on us . Salmon was over cooked and most of the food was over salted. Seemed this place is not what it used to be.

Everyone working there was extremely attentive, kind and professional. The prime rib was a little chewy. Ran out of Miller Lite which I think was a little odd for a restaurant on Saturday evening at 6:30. All in all a nice experience would probably try it again

I had been to Sidney with my late husband several times and loved the food.
Wanted to eat out for Thanksgiving with a family friend and Sydney came to mind.
The food and wine were wonderful and the staff was so accommodating.
I’ll be back :)

Sidney is consistent. The menu has delicious options and they change up some of it with some regularity. There's a bar area and a more formal area, as well as separate rooms in case one has a large private party.

It was okay.
Given the location, it might as well be the Garden of Eden!
Ambiance was a neat, an 18th Century town-square home.
Food was decent with nice presentation. Staff was relatively inattentive, but to be fair, we were one of the last tables for the evening.

The charred calamari appetizer with polenta was amazing...great char but very tender. The 10 oz, sirloin with chimichurri on a bed of grilled Heirloom tomatoes and roasted potatoes was outstanding. The halibut filet with a sweet corn sauce was one of the top 3 sauces I have ever tasted. The service was attentive We went on a Tuesday evening.
