I have been going to the D'town as we fondly call it for nearly 30 years. No matter what the occasion, the entire experience is 10 star at all times. The service is like none other. I had the most incredibly romantic dinner of my life here and we were treated like we were the only people in the restaurant despite its being a Saturday night at Christmastime. I could rave about this place forever. Do not miss this experience. Phenomenal wine collection!

The food is impeccable, but you will pay for it. Their caesar salad (made table-side) is world-class, as are their steaks, seafood, wines, and desserts. I only go here when I'm willing to spend about $200+ for myself and 1 other person...you'll want to have drinks, appetizers, salad, entrees, and dessert - trust me, don't skip dessert. The pepper-crusted filet is to die for, as is the creme brulee. Just be careful about your wine selection - I ordered a bottle of $55 wine once and they charged me $110 for the entire bottle...I guess they brought me the wrong one! When I balked, they would not take the additional $55 off my tab. I am still sore over that, but I will eventually go back anyway!

Dilworthtown Inn is one of those 'special occasion' places as the place is very pricey, but the service is superb and the food is even better. I would rank it as probably the single best restaurant in the west Chester, PA, area. The decor is beautifully and tastefully understated and rustic and the outdoor area is fun in warm weather. Across the street is the Innkeeper's Kitchen where you can see food being prepared in a large demonstration area and of course, you get to eat it afterwards. This is popular with groups wanting a different sort of annual banquet or celebrating a special occasion. It's all good and worth trying at least once.

I have been dining at the Dilworthtown Inn for years and years. The food is exceptional and the waitstaff is superb. I especially enjoy eating al fresco in the restored "stables". The restaurant is a beautifully restored 18 century inn. I would highly recommend treating yourself to a memorable meal here.

We went for my birthday and were largely disappointed. While the ambience at the Dilworthtown Inn is very nice and service was generally very good, albeit slow, the food just doesn't live up to expectations for the price. I had to send back my $40 steak which was way, way over done. A high end restaurant would offer to re-do your wife's meal as well (so you can eat together), but not here. After 15 minutes (by then, my wife was done) it arrived. Still over cooked, but not nearly as much. Steaks aren't seasoned, so they are pretty bland. She had the crab cake, which was just OK. We've had much better steaks at Sullivan's or Harry's Savoy (which are both cheaper.) The Caesar Salad (made at your table) was good, at least.

Pros: Ambience, Service

Cons: Food, Price

This is definatley a top of the line fancy restaraunt but well worth the money. Pretty much an all adult atmosphere with some of the best food I've ever tasted. You will be catered to by the wonderful staff and feel like a star. The menu is so unique in flavor and presentation, this is one night out that you will never forget. They now offer things that you can take home as well and often times have a booth set up in the local mall during the holidays.

Dilworthtown Inn is located in West Chester. Very good food. We brought our 5 year old with us (didn't see any other children there). I recommend getting a babysitter. Very quite restaurant.

This was our 5th time dining here and my wife and I have loved it every time. The food is excellent, from the crab cake or ginger lobster appetizers to the chilean sea bass and venison entree's....tasty desserts, friendly wait staff...and don't forget to stop by the fireplace bar for a cocktail before or after dinner. a wonderful place to dine, especially around the holidays. We always look forward to our next visit.

It has all the class of a great center city restaurant without the parking hassles. Service was great and the food was even better!

WOW! What a complete waste of time and money! The wait my companion and I endured for the quality of food and service was excruciating. What has happened to this grande dame? Won't return, won't recommend!

Pros: Beauty, effect

Cons: horrible food, long waits, no value

.

Overpriced, pretentious, mediocre service (forgot our soup, waited LONG time bet. courses, had to BEG for rolls), old-fashioned, loaded w/ butter. "Hi I am your waiter, Bozo, etc." No idea as to what was in "specials" . . . typical Chester County hype. Some flash, no substance. Save your money. Oh yeah . . . new chef from Alabama!! It shows.

Pros: Surroundings

Cons: Food

The food was good, but far from the gourmet delight you might expect for the price. The food also seemed to echo the gourmet trend of presentation (high above the plate) over portion--there was not really that much there. Generally, we found the restaurant to be stuffy and the food decent, but disappointing.

Everything is perfectly organized. While I wasn't a huge fan of the food, the service is awsome, and the decor is horse and carriage fantastic.
