Having been married at the Carnegie Inn almost four years ago, my husband and I frequent the restaurant several times a year. One of those special dates is always New Year's Eve and 2013 was no different. We arrived for our 8:30 reservation and were seated in the library where we enjoy a drink and hors d'oeuvres while waiting to be seated. Our orders are also taken while waiting in the library so that, once seated, the dining experience is smooth and uneventful. On this particular night, the wait was longer than usual. Quite frankly, the wait is not an inconvenience as we are seated in comfortable chairs, with a fireplace and beautiful holiday decorations creating a warm, romantic environment. The wait is part of the experience and, with our busy lives, I relish the opportunity to relax and enjoy uninterrupted conversation with my husband. The dinner, as always, is also well worth the wait. The food is fabulous - both taste and presentaion. The customer service is second to none. The decor of the restaurant is pleasing to the eye. We have many fond memories of the Carnegie Inn and look forward to creating many more.
