Duling Kurtz House Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately, all the women at the other 2 tables were terribly noisy during lunch. We were all seated way too close to each other in the same side room. We should have been spread out more. We were the first two to arrive, and the screaming others were placed right next to us. I could barely hear my friend speak across a small table. We finally got up, and sat and talked in the bar area. One would have thought that women at a restaurant of this quality would have had the courtesy to lower their voices slightly. One could even clearly hear their conversations from another room.
I have had an outstanding experience at DK and this was less than that. However, I will give them another try. They had a very large party which we believe delayed our meals. More communication about it would have been welcome. Two salads were good to very good; octopus starter was overcooked. Salmon and Ahi tuna entrées were good to very good. Lobster crepes were tasty, however, I believe there was just as much crab as lobster so the dish may be mis-named. Crepes themselves were over-done. Vegetables were overcooked and mashed potatoes were lukewarm. Popovers were delicious.
Food was delicious, and service was attentive, but not intrusive. The popovers are amazing, and our wonderful server offered more of them! It's a little expensive, but worth it. We had a coupon for a free appetizer. We got the scallops appetizer which was so good. Great place for a special occasion.
We were seated at a window table on the porch, where we were served a wonderful meal. Our waitress June, was very friendly, knowledgeable, & efficient. When we first arrived the noise level was a bit loud, but eased when several of the male diners left. Our experience was a very positive one until it came time to settle the bill, whereupon, we learned that you would not accept our Visa Gift Card. It's our understanding that this card is as good as cash, which I'm sure you would have accepted. We didn't understand the explanation, other than it (the refusal) had to do with the gratituity amount. We are very disappointed with your policy. It makes no sense!
First time at the Duling-Kurtz. I'll be honest, when we first pulled up I was a little nervous as we were greeted with a quaint, but not well taken care of grounds area. Weeds in the walkway, walkway lights bent over or broken...things like that. The decor is either love it or hate it. The room we ate in was very rustic, which we loved. Huge fireplace with a few candlelit tables. After being seated, any reservations I had slipped away. Servers were pleasant and attentive, glasses always topped off and were able to answer any questions we had. Noise level was low at first then around 7:30 picked up just a little. We were able to speak softly and hear each other perfectly fine. The food was tasty and flavorful. Will definitely be back.
We dined at Duling Kurtz House for our 40th anniversary and very much enjoyed the experience. Great food choices with a familiar wine and a delicious cobbler to complete the meal. Great waiter, who described the menu choices well, and spent some time telling us about the history of the restaurant, added to our enjoyment.
After a long hiatus, we returned to Duling Kurtz after a recommendation from a Book Club member. What a lovely dining experience! We went with friends for dinner and went to the cozy bar first for a cocktail. Later we were seated in one of the small dining areas of this historic building. The room had a fireplace which would be very inviting on a crisp winter evening . All of us enjoyed our appetizers and entrees especially the escargot, duck and Wiener Schnitzel. And oh, those yummy popovers! Our server was very attentive and most helpful with menu suggestions. We certainly plan to return.
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!
