Dillworthtown Inn -Long

Karin | Jan 18, 2004 02:00 PM

We started out having an enjoyable dining experience at the Dillworthtown Inn in Glens Mills. It was snowing outside and the quaint, seperate rooms were dimly lit and the noise level was low. We ordered a bottle of wine from the very extensive wine menu. They were out of our selection and came back some time later with our other choice.
Our waiter was quite robotic and seemed as if he wanted to be anywhere but there. I started with a tempura ginger lobster with apricot sauce on a bed of sauteed spinach. It was tasty and there was a nice balance of spicy and sweet($13). My fiance started with a special salad of greens with shrimp, pomegranets, and blood organges in a vinagerette. He enjoyed it but not immensely ($11).
The next course were greens which we ordered with their sesame house dressing (which was among the most uninspired dressings I have tasted). However, our waiter delivered two salads with different dressings. When we inquired he said he couldn't read his handwriting so brought out one of each. Hmmm.
I then had veal chop with whipped potatoes and greens ($34). My partner ordered a Colorado rack of lamb with fingerling potatoes and greens($36). Our entrees were delivered to the table without comment. My partner commented that he had whipped potatoes instead of the fingerling and it looked suspicously like a filet. Our assumption was confirmed whan we called over a waiter and he took both plates away. He then returned with mine covered with a plastic warmer and several minutes later brought out the lamb. No apologies for the error. And left the plastic cover. Our meat was fine, nothing great for these prices and by then my veal was hardly warm.
Overall, we were very diappointed and expected far better service for these prices. Another customer said her order came to the table wrong as well. We will not be returning anytime soon...
