It's typically a challenge to find a great restaurant close to the turnpike, but this place fits the bill. Who would think a restaurant of this caliber would be located in Somerset Pennsylvania. When you arrive @ this beautiful Georgia mansion (built in 1915), you are escorted to your table and presented with a menu that has your surname imprinted on the menu. What a nice touch! The wait staff wears white gloves and is quite attentive. We began with a shooter (cup) of vichyssoise and the escargot. Both were done superbly. The escargot were the largest I have ever seen and were succulent. Salad is included with the entree. I had the caesar, which was very good, just a little over-dressed. My wife had the garden salad with a wonderful lemon-blue cheese dressing. For our main course, we had the Arctic char with couscous and asparagus (yummy) and the lamb chops with mashed potatoes and a wonderful reduction sauce. Prior to the main course, they brought a mango pallet cleanser to the table. Made from scratch, and it really hit the spot. We opted to skip desert but were surprised with a small thimble made of dark chocolate and filled with white chocolate mousse.
This is a "special occasion restaurant and just a wonderful jewel in Somerset, Pennsylvania.

Very pleasant setting and atmosphere. Attention to little things; they printed menus with our name and had them on our table; they brought a piece of gluten free bread to the table, and between each course they had a tiny 'amuse-geule' plate.

The menu prices are offputting if you don't look at the bottom for the $20 specials [may not be available weekends]. Wine by the glass with the usual high but not obscene markup.

Reservations advisable, I suspect.

Thank you for dining with us! We are pleased that you had a nice experience. I am glad you noticed the little things such as your name printed on your menu. We take pleasure in making our guests feel at home and welcome. We believe that this is one way to achieve that goal. We believe the amuse is a great touch to the service we provide. It's nice to hear that you enjoyed it as well. Our menu prices require careful consideration due to the fact that we provide fresh ingredients. The highest of quality allows us to maintain our standards. Every item on each of our menus undergoes a process that may take up to 6 weeks. This process includes quality, guest feedback and for wines, pairing with our dishes. If a menu item or wine makes it through this process, it is then placed on our menu. We are also aware of the dietary needs and restrictions that are on the rise and do not think twice about accommodating any guest with this need. Thank you again and we hope to see you in the future!

Worth it for a special occasion. The wine selection was average. The menu is excellent. The server was very well trained. She lacked any personality.

Thank you for your review and for choosing The Georgian Inn of Somerset. Comparably, our dishes are priced below that of other restaurants. We receive everything fresh. We require of our limited high quality suppliers to provide us with hand picked fresh items rather than boxed items. This is our standard of quality that we maintain. As for our servers, we are very dedicated to them having a butler style training. This is also why your server was very well trained and knowledgeable. What may appear to be a lack of personality, is actually our butler trained server being on point and listening to the needs of our guests rather than adding personality. However, they are able to interact if our guests request them to do so. Our goal for our menu, including our wine list, is to achieve our quality standards without a high cost. In order for our wines to make the menu, they must go through a process that takes up to 6 weeks. Our dishes are designed by our executive chef and our wine pairings done by our sommelier. The sommelier must find the best quality and match for the food but keep it affordable with the menu. We have high end wines but also a very fine array of reds, whites, port, and ice wines. Next visit, please ask our butler server for the owner's choice paired with your entrée which will be a rare more expensive pairing that the owner himself has selected. Thank you again for the review and the five out of five. We hope to see you in the future.

We had a superb meal at the Georgian Inn during a recent ski weekend at Seven Springs. The risotto I had was perfectly cooked and blended brilliantly with the scallops, the wines were quite good, the desserts were interesting and well made, and the service excellent. Even the salads were imaginative and perfectly dressed. A couple of touches might be considered over the top: we had a framed personalized reservation marking our table, and the waitress put on white gloves each time she served anything. But the bottom line is always food quality, and this was an extremely pleasant surprise in what seemed to us a relatively out-of-the-way place. There were only two other tables with customers on a Saturday night, so let's hope the place keeps going!
