It was Valentine's, so we got as close to pearls as possible with the incredible oysters. That followed, of course, the always amazing oysters - as advertised, sweet and fresh.

Very excellent steak with wine sauce. The cod in pastry was excellent also. The noise level in the front dining room was very acceptable (quiet conversation was possible). A great dinner for a pre Valentines celebration.

I wrongly assumed that a tavern style restaurant would have a more relaxed atmosphere. The food was very good. I just wasn't anticipating the formal dining experience.

Great menu choices and absolutely fabulous preparation! Everything we ordered was so well made and delicious! Bravo Sidney’s! We had eaten here years ago and were so pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food was this time. Better selection and outstanding delivery.

Both Sidney restaurants are on our favorite go-to list. They have never disappointed -- food is creative not pretentious. Great use of seasonal and local foods. Their specialty drinks are also a lot of fun. The tavern in East Berlin is a great cold winter night place, while the terrace at Sidney's Willougby Run is a perfect summer spot.

Fabulous as always! Such amazing flavor profiles and beautiful food creations. Culinary works of art! Fine food, wonderful atmosphere, great service. I'm never disappointed. My all-time favorite restaurant. Someone needs to text me when there is duck on the menu again and I'll be there in a heartbeat! Chef Neal does amazing things with duck!

We always enjoy Sidney. Salads are tasty and the choices are all good. We like to dine in the Tavern side so you can order off either menu. Good selection on the wine list too.

Another amazing birthday spent at my favorite restaurant. Food was amazing. Table beside the fireplace was warm, cozy, and romantic. Wait staff and chef made us feel extra special.

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!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 13, 2017

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.
