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.

We were greeted inside the main door by Sarah. She then seated us for outside dining as requested. She served us a glass of champagne for our Anniversary night out. The service was excellent, the foods were superior as always, the noise was very low outside and easy to enjoy conversation. This is one of our very favorite places for special dining as well as casual drop ins. I highly recommend Sidney. We look forward to a return trip soon, perhaps my birthday.

As always, this is our go-to restaurant while we are still in withdrawal from Philly restaurants. Chicken liver and Foie gras was light, and fresh. And the salmon was perfect, as always. Ballaast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA from San Diego was unexpected, and right up there with east coast IPAs.

Six of us (all women) had a lovely evening celebrating the birthday of a dear friend. Following a long day of antiquing in nearby towns, we arrived tired and hungry but were immediately perked up by the wait staff and hostess who were exceptionally accommodating. We had our drinks on the outdoor deck where we enjoyed the delightful garden, flowers and water feature. Some of our drink requests were not on the menu but that did not deter the hostess from going the extra mile; finding the ingredients and providing some beautiful and unusual cocktails. We then made an effortless move indoors for dinner - again thanks to a very attentive wait staff. Our table waiter was most helpful in providing answers to questions about the selections and efficient when taking our orders . As he brought more drinks and appetizers to our table, we were updated on the status of our expected entrees. Everything seemed to move in a timely manner and when served, our dinners were absolutely delicious! Food portions were very adequate and the presentation was well above average. Each of us enjoyed a luscious dessert and agreed that we could not have chosen a better restaurant in which to celebrate and enjoy a wonderful and festive evening. We hope to return soon for another pleasurable dining experience.

Overall a very good experience. This was our first visit to Sidney. High marks for food, service and ambiance. our 2 minor complaints. despite the virtually empty dining room at 5pm the host seated a couple with an infant at the table right next to ours...why? also our server responded to every single menu selection we made with "excellent choice" making it sound a bit boilerplate. but the flawlessly prepared dishes and cocktails certainly outweighed those concerns. we will definitely visit Sidney again and recommend it to others.
