We've been there a number of times over the years, and expected another 5-star experience for the five of us.

Service was topnotch, before dinner in the lounge and during dinner. Nice extensive wine selection. Appetizers were very nice. They grow much of their own food, which is a nice touch. And, the ambiance in the restored barn is wonderful.

So, why not a "5"? While the entrees were original and tasty, the quantities left much to be desired, especially for the price paid. Caesar sald was tasty, but about half of what's usually served. Two of us ordered Gnocchi. Interesting interpretation with pickled cauliflower, rhubarb and other root vegetables, but the entire dish was about one cup, and contained six small pieces of Gnocchi. The fact that it differed so much from what I expected didn't take away from the dish, but it's small appearance and quantity certainly did. My wife ordered the lamb, one of the more expensive entrees. Nice presented, but two very small pieces of lamb.

We appreciate your feedback regarding your experience. At Glasbern we do pride ourselves in Farm to Table and it is important to hear what our guests think about our food. Portions can sometimes be a tough category. I will be sure to pass the information to our head chef. Hopefully we will see the five of you in the future to experience our fall featured menu.

One of the highest end restuarants in the Lehigh Valley. Set in a beautiful wooded pocket north of rt 78, close to the city, but you feel like you are in some pocket of a Colorado forest. The quiet property has several barns/houses. The Restuarant is in a beautiful wood/glass open beam barn. We had a Mother's day fixed menu, wonderful small gourmet combinations of mostly very local food. The chefs were very creative, and the textures and presentation were all a pleasure to experience and eat. Even my 9 year old was trying new things because they were presented so special and really "cool/clever". The staff was very professional and attentive, making the overall experience simply a quiet joy.

Attended a small, private dinner party in early May. The food was excellent and very creatively prepared. Many of the ingredients were grown or raised on the restaurant/inn's farm as Glasbern is a farm-to table-establishment. Beautiful ambiance and great service as well.

There's no doubt in my mind it is one of the best restaurants in the Valley. I would LOVE if there were more vegetarian offerings; however, the setting, ambiance, service, presentation, creativity, taste are all really perfect. The prices are not inexpensive (especially for this area); however, it is an appropriate place for a special treat. (Be warned, the scallop appetizer IS A scallop. lol)
