Description: he Horned Dorset Inn is the quintessential destination for memorable fine dining and lodging in Central New York State. It has been lovingly managed by the same owners for 35 years. Classical French cuisine that would make Julia Child proud, gracious Victorian accommodations including breakfast en suite, and sensitive service are the hallmarks of this countryside hostelry.

There is fine dining and then there is the Horned Dorset — a unique experience that raises dining out to a whole new level of excellence. Yes, you're going to spend a little more, but the service, the food, the sincere friendliness of all involved (from on-line reservations to the final good-bye from the host) and the warm ambiance leave you wanting to overtip. I second all the other reviews here and can only add that we also hope to make this an annual trip.

What an unexpected treat to land at The Horned Dorset Inn in mid-state NY. I have been in some fine restaurants but have not eaten a tastier meal anywhere. Particularly enjoyable ....the pot of cheese souffle served with crackers before the meal, the vegetable soup...usually a work horse soup elevated to a broth with subtle flavors, and the dark chocolate covered cheese bonbon served at meal's end. I don't have a particularly sophisticated pallet, but this dinner and its presentation were outstanding.

I have been anticipating the re-opening of the Horned Dorset for a year and I am thrilled that it was just as wonderful as before. The food is fabulous! The atmosphere is romantic! My husband and I return every year for our anniversary. I highly recommend it!!!

What an amazing experience. The food was delicious from first course to dessert. The staff was attentive and anticipated our ever need. In the background a classical gutarist was softly playing.
To top off an exquiste evening, we strolled next door to the Inn for an overnight stay. A little over an hours drive from Syracuse and well worth the drive.

The atmosphere and the food were exceptional. The entire staff was more than accommodating to each request.
