We had a great dining experience. Our Lobster and Scallop Mac and Cheese appetizer was wonderful! We both got their specials: Veal chop (a bit expensive, but delicious) and Halibut (could have been a little more moist, but was still very tasty). We ended the night with dark chocolate bread pudding... Yum! Overall, the food was very good, but a... More

Thank you so much for the review. We're glad you enjoyed your meal. Sounds like you ordered the specials which tend to be a little more pricy than our regular menu items. We hope our prices won't deter you from visiting us again soon. We appreciate your business. More

We found Dan's by accident, looking for a fine dining experience in or nearby Reading, and we were very pleasantly surprised by Dan's. Their reviews over the years have been mixed, so I gave them a shot. What a gorgeous old building!! They have a diverse menu, and everything's prepared to perfection -- we enjoyed the duck ravioli appetizer very... More

When to Dan's at Green Hills on New Years Eve. This was a 5 course prefix menu. Starting with Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup that was out of this world, next Lobster and Shrimp Mac and Cheese that was the best that I have ever had, to the Arugula & Poached Pear Salad. The main course was either Salmon or... More

Dinner was mouth watering! Everything cooked to perfection including the butternut squash soup, seafood riosotto, duck. Dinner ended with a delish dessert of warm bread pudding with ghiradelli chocolate. Service was excellent!!

A weeknight dinner, party of eight, on the new patio was simply amazing. I highly recommend Dan's restaurant, even the chef came out to meet with us. We had the sweet potato soup ( perfect), the duck and the filet ( outstanding), and the cherry dessert with homemade ice-cream and almond cookies (wow). Dan's has something special here, I hope...

I have enjoyed dinner at the old location a couple of times but this was the first time I tried the new location. I was with a party of ten... we were given our own room and they pushed tables together so we all sat around a large table to talk. The main dining room seemed to be at the... More

WOW. That really is the best word to describe this establishment. My wife and I went tonight for the first time. We've lived literally down the road from this place for almost a year now and had no idea it even existed until today. I had a delicious risotto followed by duck ravioli followed by a chocolate souffle. All three... More

We were big fans of Dans from the 'old days' of previous location and previous ownership. This was our first visit to the new location at the site of the former Green Hills Inn. The building is very old and seemed just a tad musty. The menu selection is appealing and the food preparation, delivery and taste were excellent. Prices... More

We recently dined here with a group of long time friends from our college days. The restaurant itself is very charming and the grounds of the restaurant were lovely. The service was prompt and gracious throughout our meal. And the food, it was delicious from the first bite to the last. I live in California and was surprised to find... More
