The food was amazing! Loved it. Highly recommend it. Have been there 3 times now and the food and service have been perfect!
Food was excellent a great place to dine. Service was great.
Our request for special seating needs were immediately and considerately provided. The meal, as always, was excellently presented. The special flavors in the curry char dish and the free range chicken were awesome. The wait staff provided excellent care and attention.
Everything was up to usual Sidney standards. Great service, great food, great ambience.
First experience at this restaurant. Awesome appetizers. Prime rib was cooked properly at medium rare but “chewy”. Desert was great. Will look forward to going back to try another main course. Waitress attentive and helpful. Should have gone with her seafood suggestion.
Sydney Tavern is a gift! You simply can't find food like this elsewhere in the Gettysburg area. My husband and I dined at Sydney for our anniversary, so it was a bit of a splurge. Superb food, tremendous wine selection, extremely attentive service, and lovely historic setting. My favorites were the pate and the creme brulee.
Both the service and food were outstanding! Unique flavors. Can’t wait to return and sit outside on patio
All good. We celebrated a birthday
We had a very good dinner experience, service and food were excellent. I will recommend this place to others.
One of the best meals we ever had. Fantastic! Highly recommended.
A hidden gem. Staff and food were wonderful and the attention to detail, from a culinary perspective, was both unexpected and surprisingly thorough. We started with the potato crisps. I wasn't expecting much (I mean they are potatoes chips) but i was surprised at how well they were done. Fried to a golden brown and then the perfect amount of toppings were added to balance the flavors with out any single ingredient over powering another. For entrees, my wife's steak (I believe it was a strip steak but i honestly am not 100% sure) was overcooked (ordered Med rare but arrived med well), the staff was very apologetic and accommodating and she had another very quickly. I ordered rare prime rib and it was superb. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, al dente, and the whipped mashed potatoes were amazing. For dessert we hesitantly ordered the creme brulee. (A lot of places struggle to make this correctly) No problems here. It was wonderful. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back. Thank you for taking the time to do things the right way. Your dedication to your business and its guests is a breath of fresh air in this industry. Keep up the great work.
Food was very good and over all a very nice place to spend a special occasion with someone. A no rush atmosphere made it even better.
Great food and lovely people in a great atmosphere. Always a treat to dine at Sidney.
If you are looking for the step above the rest this is the place! Unique dishes with great flavors.
This is my wife and I's favorite place to eat and celebrate special moments of our life. We have many memories of romantic dinners, laughs and excellent cocktails and wine... But I need to address something we have notice over the the past year or so that the menu has become repetitive and safe. We fell in love with chef's bold and amazing ability to make extraordinary and exciting dishes that both challenged me and made me appreciate food and someone's talent at bringing such different flavors together. Chef makes a truly memorable and delicious meals. We would be so excited to go and see what new dishes he would create. It was almost an obsession lol! Please take this not as a bad review but as encouragement to be BOLD AGAIN because we will be back in hopes that it returns back to the place we fell in love with so many years ago.
Wonderful place to dine.
Would highly recommend.
This is my first time visiting Sidney and I thought that the ambience of the place was wonderful. Our server was attentive but not overly so. The menu seemed very limited and for lack of a better word kind of catering to the masculine patrons. The night that we came there were no chicken dishes no seafood dishes other than monkfish the rest was pretty much red meat. And while my dish that I had, the monkfish, was very well done,I would have preferred several more choices then were made available. Also I was underwhelmed by the choices for drinks on the menu again they all seem to cater to the more masculine patrons, and the drink that I ordered a French martini seemed to be foreign to the waitstaff as if they had never heard of it before. I think I took two sips of it and didn’t drink any more of it. The waitress remarked about how I didn’t drink it, and when I told her it wasn’t a French martini all she could say was well we’ll have to work on that. It would have been nice had they taken the drink off the bill since it wasn’t what I askedAnd I didn’t drink it. Would I return again? Possibly but I don’t think I would make a special trip there
Not as good as our previous experience though that was many years ago. Dinner was good but not exceptional, especially considering the price. My husband’s steak was tough and his pound cake was dry. Flourless chocolate cake was delicious!
We had a lovely visit to Sidney—great service, good drinks, excellent wine list and fantastic food! We will definitely be back for future special occasions.
Everything was great with respect to the service and the food. Unfortunately, I did find it to be very loud. This is not really something the restaurant can control - it’s just disrespectful patrons thinking they were in an Irish pub. I suppose we could have asked a waiter to ask that this table try to be more subdued (I mean really- this is supposedly fine dining so you should be able to converse with others at your table without feeling like you were talking loudly to be heard over another table). But again -we should have probably said something. Overall I would highly recommend this establishment.
The menu is superlative. Every item is gourmet and every bite delicious. The interior decor is unremarkable, but the food makes the trip worthwhile.
Food was outstanding and our waitress did a superb job. Everything served was hot and delicious!
Fabulous meal. So nice to eat a delicious meal that was plated and served. Not takeout due to COVID.
Had char for the first time. Exquisite. Never would have expected fish topped with red grapefruit. Must try.
Returning next month for their wine pairing dinner.
What an awesome time we had celebrating my Wife’s 50th BD. The staff was so accommodating setting a table up for us inside and outside on the terrace so we could choose where we wanted to sit when we arrived. Service was great and the food was exceptional. What a great night!!!
It was okay, I will not be going back again though, I was somewhat disappointed
We love this place. The tavern burger is delicious and the oysters on the half shell are out of this world.
Notable food— never had anything that wasn’t good to outstanding. The ambiance is a little lackluster for the price point of the food maybe, but generally I don’t consider it a huge deal. Sometimes the service has been a bit slow or seeming a bit confused but generally the servers are professional and knowledgeable about the menu. Definitely do recommend, especially if you can make it at a non-peak time.
My husband’s birthday. Good to be back. Looks really nice. Love the special touches.
My husbands burger was medium well & his frys weren’t crispy. Medium rare & likes them crispy.
He loves this entree. He missed having it. My special gnocchi was fabulous. Our son had the burger also. He said his was good. We will also be back. One of our favorites ❤️🍀🌻🍸🍺
Food and environment were wonderful. Our waitress was very kind but was absent for long periods of time and service was rather slow throughout our dinner experience.
Fantastic food and wine! We really enjoyed the atmosphere - so nostalgic. great friends and great food. Best martinis ever! Thank you to all!
My wife and I were looking for a new quaint place to eat dinner and we stumbled upon Sidney. I have to say that the overall experience was great. The service was on point, and our food was delicious. I will be going back really soon. What a pleasant surprise to find this place.
Sidney's is our favorite place to eat. We go there at least once a month. We always sat in the back dining room. This week we were seated in the bar area which was the first time wee had ever sat there. The music was too loud and traffic to and from restroom was annoying. I will ask to be seated in the back dining room from now on.
Everything was awesome. All our meals were prepared perfectly. Service was excellent. Wine selection was good. Desserts were unique and delicious.
Excellent food with excellent service!!!
Fantastic experience as always.
Great experience but my visits will be very limited secondary to the cost. I would recommend Sidney's ONLY to somebody who could afford this restaurant and would enjoy it, paying the price. I can afford this BUT is a 2 hour period worth $380? Each has to answer that question but for me, I can have as much "fun" at a lower cost very nice and excellent restaurant.
Superior service, beautiful ambiance and flavorful food! Was a phenomenal dinning experience!
Loire Valley wine dinner. Really great experience.
