Duling Kurtz House Ratings and Reviews
As usual Duling Kurtz met our expectations. Went with a friend for lunch, it is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. The escargot are to die for. It is just a very lovely, pleasant place to spend an afternoon with friends. The garden could do with a little sprucing up but other than that the porch is a lovely place to enjoy a meal. Our waiter was terrific too.
Having just relocated to the area, we stumbled upon this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We're so glad we did! The food was exceptional, the service perfect, and the ambiance quiet and pleasant. The entire experience was absolutely first class, and we'll return many times.
AWESOME as usual. We go here when we want something special, and are never let down. From the Tasmanian smoked trout, to the black bass, and then two of their Austrian specialties, weiner schnitzel and cheese strudel. Everything is cooked to perfection, the wait staff is friendly and appropriately attentive. This is an old country farmhouse so the atmosphere and views are wonderful. Usually quiet dining, even when they have live music. Great place for special occasions, date night, or when you are looking for a fabulous meal.
The food was inconsistent and the service was very poor (staff seemed unconcerned since a 20% gratuity is automatic). Our entrees were served two hours after we were seated and several had to be sent back to the kitchen because they were cold. Drinks weren't provided until 30 minutes after ordered and several were not what was requested. We were overcharged (extra entree) and had to make several requests for a refund.
Our server greeted us a few mins after we were seated. We ordered drinks, and it took a few mins for the server to bring them. He took our order and spoke in a kind and friendly manner. Verbally, he was trying. Our server did not bring our food to the table, and the runner did not ask if we needed anything. Our server did not check on us to see if we needed anything, and we needed butter, syrup, salt, pepper and drink refills. He finally brought me a second iced tea when I was finished eating, but my daughter was not offered a coffee refill. Serving breakfast/brunch, to me, is different then lunch and dinner. A little extra attention should be paid to what is going on with the food and drink . D.K. was my Mother's favorite, so we wanted to go there for Mother's Day in her honor.
I frequent this site often for business lunches. It is an upscale menu with great daily special creations. This is a white table cloth kind of place with an impressive selection...from ahi and escargot as a starter to crab cakes and lobster crepes for an entree...they even have great fish and chips and a hamburger. The service is amazing and normally not too crowded over lunch. This is one of my most favorite spots in the area!
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!
One entrée was poorly prepared and unacceptable. Noise level was quite high. Waiter failed to provide detailed receipt with credit card bill and followed our party into the parking lot and rudely demanded additional tip (20%).
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...
