Duling Kurtz House Ratings and Reviews
I recently attended a special lunch for staff at Duling Kurtz. Although the restaurant was sparsely filled, the service was very slow. My lunch and several others commented that the food was just average. Considering the prices, for example $12.00 for a small salad that was mainly spinach with 2 or 3 arugula leaves, 3 pieces of shredded carrot and 2 cherry tomatoes cut in half, we expected more.
The food was quite delicious but the portions were a bit small for the prices in my experience. Our waiter was wonderful and loved telling us about the various items on the menu. He was a great ambassador for the restaurant! The atmosphere was wonderful and we really enjoyed the ambiance. We will definitely go back again!
My wife and I had a lovely dinner here. The food was exceptional as was the service. We were celebrating our anniversary and our waiter (Ken) presented us with a special candle when he served dessert. Nice touch. The ambiance was nice, though marred by two patrons sitting at the other end of the room who insisted on sharing a couple of music videos (with volume on). Why their waiter did not stop this we're not sure. In addition, a kitchen staff person was ordered to weed wack the garden just outside our dining room. Not only was it noisy and distracting, but small stones and debris carreened off our and other diners' windows. Bad timing for doing yard work. All this being said, we'd go back for a special occasion, as the food was delicious.
Amazing food! The Kale & Caesar salad is definitely the best salad I've ever had in my life. Goes well with the scallops. Michael the bartender is so friendly and made me a special off the menu wine spritzer. Such a wonderful evening with spectacular service. 5 stars all around
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Everything was divine. They were kind enough to give us a complimentary creme brûlée to celebrate. My wife loved her crab cakes which came on a butternut squash puree. My lobster and crab crepes were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We had a wonderful first visit to this historic restaurant. Our servers were excellent and made us feel welcomed from the minute we arrived. Without us asking, they gave us a beautiful table in front of a fireplace, in a semi private room. Rooms are small, and feel intimate. The food was extremely impressive: creative dishes, complex recipes, and everything was presented beautifully. We are happy we discovered this place for monthly date nights- and will be back!
We were celebrating a birthday. The food was excellent, and the waiter was friendly, and attended to us as needed, never felt rushed or forgotten. We all had seafood dishes, the grouper was amazing, as was the fish boil. The lobster tails again were quite good. The strudel was FANTASTIC!!!!! They are known for their Austrian dishes, but all food was top notch! A regular spot for us...
We went for Valentines Day, even though they were very busy everything came out tasting great. We were not rushed at all, we had four courses over 3 hours, the scallops and baked bre were awesome. I had the filet and my girlfriend had the mahi mahi, both were well worth it. Our server Amy made the night extra nice she was great, and even with many tables to worry about she gave everyone her undivided attention. She made a great night perfect!! Thanks for making it a great Valentines Day!
Even though it was Valentines Day and the place was packed, Michael the bartender did an awesome job taking our drink order and responding quickly. The same goes for our meal and server, as the food was delicious! Always lives up to or exceeds our expectations!
If you are looking for fine dining in Chester County with great ambiance, this is the place. The food is great, service is wonderful and overall dining experience the best you can expect. Bring that special date here and impress them as I did. You won't regret it and you will have an exceptional meal!
Love the charming, historical setting but unfortunately that's where the positive comments end. Service was painfully slow, waiter was inattentive and food was okay. Not worth the trip, too many better choices a lot closer to home.
Fortunately our table was close to the bar, I actually had to ask the bartender for a glass of wine because our waiter was nowhere to be found.
Very slow service. After 30 minutes needed to ask for waiter to take order and then meal finally came at 2hr mark... what made it worse was limited checking on drinks. Was a busy night and clearly they were not ready for the traffic. Food, when it finally came, was very good.
We were the first to arrive for lunch on a Saturday. We were pleased with the menu selections and the waiter was knowledgeable. Two of us ordered the French onion soup which arrived warm, not hot. We chose to ignore the temperature so as not to hold up the third person in our party from starting to eat. Two of us ordered the leek and mushroom tart. The waiter said the chef was able to accommodate a change of cheese in the tart and we were thrilled. When the tarts arrived, they we only moderately warm. As the room was filling up, it took a while to catch our waiter's attention. New tarts were brought 20 minutes later. By then the third member of our party had finished his meal--we told him to go ahead and not wait which would have spoiled his meal. The tarts were delicious but we were pretty irritated by then. We also had to wait a ridiculous amount of time for our coffee. We do not know if the cold tarts were the fault of the kitchen of the waiter. To his credit, the waiter informed us that there would be no charge for the tarts or the coffee, but we would have preferred a meal without this aggravation.
This is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. As expected, the menu was varied and the food selected was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. We like the décor and ambiance. Being a week night, there were not many patrons so the noise level was low.
