                                                            Hi, I'm sad to say I was a little disappointed with the food this time. My hamburger was very dry and overcooked. I asked for medium rare. The fries looked like they were overcooked as well, almost burnt. That said my husband thoroughly enjoyed his fish dish. No more burgers for me. Also, I remember them giving us some type of sweet bite at the end. Nothing this time.

                                                            We were seated right on time, the wait staff was appropriately attentive, patient as we decided on our order, and the kitchen and bar provided the finest food we have had in a while. And we can be a bit picky when at fine dining establishments. Recommend the duck and the cod entrees as well as the calamari. Dessert was seasonal fall harvest and very well done. Again, everything was appropriately portioned.

                                                            Our party of 4 had high hopes and expectations for our first dining experience at Sidney Restaurant in East Berlin, PA. We had a reservation and were greeted and seated immediately by generally attentive staff. We're not strangers to fine dining but do expect the quality of offerings to correspond to the menu price points. Each of our first course appetizers were beautifully presented with great textures and flavors. We should have stopped then. Each of our entrees was disappointing. Each of our entrees had great visual appeal but none were the taste and texture sensations as our first course choices. Two entrees were inedible for the diners who ordered them and the other 2 were just disappointing and meals we would apologize for serving in our home from our own kitchen. Our server who seemed to be experienced but was not the guide we needed and deserved when paying over $100/person. We are fortunate to have more restaurants to try and other great ones in the area to return to.

Each dish was uniquely made and full of flavor. Wine list does not have many well known wines on it but the ones selected were exquisite!

                                                            Too pricey for not good food at all, we went there to celebrate our anniversary and only one plate was really good, all the others weren’t good, one too spicy, one too greasy and mine with no flavor at all.

                                                            I have been celebrating my birthday at Sidney’s for years. Yesterday was my 78th. We go w/neighbors and friends from our cabins in the Michaux forest. Kara, a new waitress was adorable, attentive and new to PA. It was her 2nd day and she’ll do well. She and her boyfriend moved here from Colorado recently. We had dinner early out on the patio and by the time we had dessert it had chilled enough. To send us home. We understand the traffic noise is a minus we are willing to endure, simply to be out in their delightful garden section. I hope to continue drawing 02 until 2022, if not, it’s been a real treat to eat in lovely East Berlin’s “hot” spot.

                                                            For many years this has been one of my favorite restaurants (as well as their sister restaurant in Gettysburg). Last night we were absolutely thrilled to find their world class standards of food,drink and service still intact it is so wonderful to have a restaurant of this caliber in the Gettysburg area. (BTW we drove a total of 4 hours to dine there last night! Says a lot about how much we love eating there!). I should note we ate outside in their lovely and serene garden with a small burbling pool. But keep in mind They are in the center of the small town of East Berlin so there was road noise. But is was well worth it!!!!

                                                            I ordered EAST COAST HALIBUT cannellini beans, chanterelle mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red pepper broth And it was as good as you can get. The food is as always fabulous. I can't wait to go again.

                                                            Were seated in tavern - same menu. Oysters were cold and fresh. Shirmp/avocado salad was terrific. Prime rib came as ordered - med rare and very tender. Halibut was properly done and well presented with cannelini beans/tomatoes. Will go again soon.

                                                            Short Ribs were marvelous, as was the Halibut. Malbec was a perfect paring to the short ribs, and my significant other thought the Chardonnay paired quite well the Haibut. The Terrace was comfortable; service was marvelous. I’d compare the quality of Sydney to that of Lancaster’s Belvedere!
