Nice, but expensive

This is a restaurant for special occasions as it is very expensive. The mushroom soup is excellent and very flavorful. The filet mignon is tender, but not so flavorful. Chocolate mousse cake is good quality chocolate, but a little dry. Service is wonderful and caring. The ambience is lovely, but I... read more

Tonight I had a delightful dinner there with a friend. Everything about the evening was perfect, from the lovely setting to the delicious food to the attentive and friendly staff. I started with a cranberry champagne cocktail which was quite lovely to look at and to drink - not too sweet, not too dry. Mushroom soup for the appetizer -... More

We have visited this restaurant numerous times over the past 20 years. We would go for our anniversaries, birthdays and it always made a special occasion even better! To our disbelief, our last visit will literally be our last. The waitstaff was unprofessional, sloppy attire (stains on suits), didn't know what the specials were and just the little things we...

I had dinner with a party of twelve at the Dilworthtown Inn. The decor is very old world style with rustic looking antiques and exposed brick. There is an air of elegance everywhere, even down to the waiter's tuxedo. Overall the meal and service were very good. We were well attended and people with special dietary restrictions were well cared... More

We went here for a birthday celebration for my wife, we sat outside, beautiful evening, delightful setting. There arethree restaurants at the Dilworthtown Inn, the Inn, the CChef's Kitchen and The Blue Pear Bistro. We ate at the Inn. Prices are high for mediocre food. We started with oysters, little flavour. For a main course my wife had what was... More

Inn has really old and rustic decor like you would expect but the menu was about the same, old and staid. The food was old style and not very good. Had lobster and crab meet risotto and almost found a piece of meat and the taste was bland. If they had poured the lobster bisque over it would have been... More

My husband and I have celebrated our anniversaries at Dilworthtown for 29 years. It's reputation was built on its historic ambiance, classic, excellent food, and impeccable service - definitely the place to go for that very special occasion! They seem to have lost some of what built that reputation. The menu has changed greatly (much more contemporary) and the quality... More

Even if you just want a spot for a quiet drink with a friend or a romantic rendezvous, this is the place. The food is superb and the service is always friendly and professional.

Love the location, historical building. Quite expensive but Awesome food.. The service is outstanding but our waiter stayed in the room where we ate with another table separate from us...seemed like you couldn't have a private conversation with your significant other.. Not my cup of tea!
