The Horned Dorset Inn
Always a wonderful experience! Food second to none as well as the service. Couldn’t ask for anything more for a special evening
Been coming here for over 25 years....Its always special and always comforting celebrated many happy occasions
Best in our area. Classical French training applied to as much local produce as is grown/available. Well executed and priced wines. Robust cocktails. Charming hostess overseeing very skilled waitstaff . Prices are fully appropriate to the level of goods and services delivered. Nearest true rivals would be in Syracuse or Saratoga Springs.
Truly amazing restaurant, food is out of this world! Great for anniversaries and special occasions. very recommended!
Everything about the experience was absolutely wonderful. We came for dinner and stayed the night at the Inn. The food was very creative and exceptionally delicious. Well worth the drive. We were very impressed by the food and the service. Our room at the Inn was delightful as well. The staff were wonderful. I have already recommended this establishment to friends and coworkers. We ordered the lobster bisque, charred octopus, foie gras, halibut, pork and scallops, and yule log. Nothing was what we expected, and every expectation was exceeded.
Another year of outstanding food and service in a perfect atmosphere in a unique setting.
Wonderful Christmas dinner!!. Service and food excellent. Highly recommended
we loved it and plan to return as soon as they reopen for the 2019 season
This was our third visit to the Horned Dorset, and we have yet to be disappointed. Service is excellent and delivered with panache. The food is largely French; the execution is flawless. Great ambiance, good wine list... The Horned Dorset Inn is not inexpensive, but it’s good value.
Always outstanding. The food is beyond excellent. Small but outstanding wine list. Very professional service. Lovely decor.
A very special place we patronize all too infrequently. Superb food, service and atmosphere.
This is an elegant restaurant. The service is warm, friendly and superb. our dinners were excellent
We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine. Each course was described by a very knowledgeable and personable member of the staff. The wine was expertly paired with the food which makes both better. The owner visited our table a couple of times also, making sure we were satisfied. The prices here are high, but when value received is taken into account, we were pleased with our restaurant choice.
We eat at Horned Dorset about once a month and truly enjoy every bite! The staff is fantastic! Paul, our wine guru is the best! Maddalena and Aaron have created a gem that is worth any distance to drive, for a memorable evening of creative and delicious cuisine!
What an incredible experience! I was told of the Horned Dorset by the owner of a place in Dunedin FL and everything was beyond my expectations.
I can’t wait to go back.
Had an incredible time for my husband’s 40th birthday. Excellent warmed cheese with crackers to start and I had the Seabass. My husband indulged in the caramel cheesecake for dessert. Flavors were excellent along with the atmosphere and service. The building is one of a kind and worth the trip alone, Couple that with the food and I’ll definitely be back... even though it’s an Hour drive!
Fantastic dinner. Food was perfectly prepared. Great place for a cozy dinner and good conversation. Staff is exceptional! Don’t miss visiting thing gem for a great evening.
Outstanding high end French styled cuisine. Very attentive staff and a wonderful setting.
Amazing food, gracious hosts, charming atmosphere, great service, quality wine selection Overall a delightful experience
Wonderful service and food, a must for special occasions.
The Horned Dorset is one of our favorite restaurants to dine at. The Horned Dorset consistently delivers food, service and ambiance with the upmost attention to detail. We enjoy their offerings from the garden, wine list, and seasonal menu.
We have been frequenting The Horned Dorset since the early 1980's. This most recent visit brought us from our home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We have told people all over the United States it is the best restaurant in the country. Many of our friends have traveling from near and far to enjoy The Horned Dorset. I can think of no constructive criticism for the restaurant; it is the very finest dining in America.
Delicious food, exceptional service and very relaxed ambience! One of my favorite places!
We have been going to The Horned Dorset for almost 30 years. Every meal has been extraordinay. The ambiance is incredible. The sensitive decoration could be enjoyed even without eating. It is really an amazing place and experience.
Have dined at the Horned Dorset. Always outstanding. Wonderful food. Great service.
First time, very thrilled about this jem in the country side! Very intentional high quality service! We had 4 waiters! We had the place to ourselves til 6 then it filled up, make reservations!
We've been going to the Horned Dorset for special occasions since we moved to Hamilton in 1988. The food and staff are always wonderful. Great music too, if you go on a Friday.
Dependably superb and original. Highly recommended for any special occasion or whenever one craves an exceptional meal.
Impeccable service and the best French cuisine you'll find in a charming small town, countryside setting in Upstate New York. Magical experience!
The Horned Dorset never lets us down. It is by far the best dining experience in all of central NY. Well worth the drive from Syracuse. There is no place that can compare.
The best restaurant in Upstate New York. Our favorite.
Comfort when needed from the setting, service and cuisine.
Cheese soufflé and crackers for the first course were amazing, beyond words!
The Horned Dorset is renowned for their impeccable service, ambience and exquisite cuisine using local products. Waiters are unobtrusive and observant. Food presentation amazing! You must try their dessert souffle! I did dock one star for the reservation mix up. I called after making the online reservation to specify the table overlooking the gardens. It was our 25th anniversary and it was very disappointing to be placed in the middle of the room when we arrived as they seated others at the table we requested.
Everything was wonderful! It is truly a gem in our area and there r very few restaurants that offer what HD has!!!!
Awesome food, service and ambiance! We handn't been there in over 25 years. Went back last week and it was just as wonderful as it was years ago. We will make it a stop every summer from now on.
Perfect place for a small awards dinner. Noise level was low so one could talk comfortably across the table from one end to the other. Excellent food, unique décor, wonderful place for dinner and small parties.
It was my husbands 55th birthday and we took our daughters and their boyfriends. It was absolutely lovely. Amazing service, ambience and the food a home run
What a delight! Very Old World Elegance by the white table cloths and napkins. Multi course service for a truly dining experience. Several of our dining companions require gluten free and the chef and staff were very accommodating to make their dinner memorable. The food preparation and taste was outstanding! Quail with huckleberry sauce that melted in your mouth. Onion soup w/gf bread was a winner. Fresh tomato and Vegetable Soup w/lobster, my husband went to heaven and back. These were just the appetizers. The Main meal and desserts were just as, if not more enticing. We won't wait for a special occasion, we'll come back soon.
Our evening at the Horned Dorset was absolute perfection, from the greeting to the “good night”!
The decor is exquisite, wonderful artwork, amazing attention to architectural detail, the upstairs lounges!, the incredible wine list, those Negroni cocktails!, the perfect service, those 3 windows in the dining room, and the FOOD!! Every single bite was amazing!!
I can’t WAIT to return!
I have more photos, but they don’t seem to be downloading!!
Just know that everything about the visit was WONDERFUL!!!😘😘
