The food was excellent. I ordered seafood fettuccini and it was the best seafood pasta I have ever had. My husband had the prime rib and it was juicy, tender and flavorful. We will definitely come back again.

This restaurant has superb food,from appetizers to dessert. The service was great by our waiter making sure water glasses were filled and all our needs met. Social distancing of tables did not detract from the ambience, in fact it was pleasant to not be close to other folks chatting at their tables.
Viewing the lovely grounds from our bay window in the oak room was lovely and we saw the fountain lights come on too.
a great dining experience at Elmhurst.

I would have thought that a crepe would be presented as a crepe rather than appearing as a casserole in a white serving bowl. It was tasty but I am suspect that it came pre prepared and was merely heated prior to serving.

We met friends for lunch and a chat. Since we were there during Covid, we were pleasantly surprised that all precautions were taken to make our visit safe. Since we were in the large room, the noise level was a little high. The food Was very good and our server was very good and accommodating to our needs.

We come here often. Grounds are beautiful and the restaurant is spectacular. Service great. Small disappointment was the dishes we had ordered were served Luke warm to cold asked to heat up the first two courses. Music was for a younger generation. Most of the people there were over 50. Could try matching music to the majority age that show up. We would definitely be going back For special occasions.

Everything was good, but they seemed under staffed. The waitress did her best and I felt she did everything she could, but it was a little slow. But if you have to wait, it is a nice place to be.

Loved our stay. The only suggestion I would have and by no means is this meant to be negative. I thought it would be fantastic in the afternoon while sitting on the beautiful porch there may be a cheese tray available to purchase of local Ingersoll cheese. Maybe a little fruit and a few crackers! Great way to promote local business and a nice afternoon snack.

We were seated promptly in a very friendly & courteous manner. The waiter brought our water & coffee & took our order & was friendly & polite. Short wait for our meal which was absolutely delicious. All the staff was wearing a mask & were friendly. Overall it was an enjoyable lunch & I would go again. Lots of parking.

Delicious three course dinner! Lovely ambience on the covered veranda - pretty flowers, landscaped grounds and many fountains whose sounds served to reduce the sound of traffic on the highway but did not eliminate it. The dissonance created by the lovely country "feel" and the sound of the highway was a little disappointing only because I was seeking a break from city noise.

I have been here before and really enjoyed the food. Opening after covid for indoor dining, I found the lunch I got wasn’t as described and was no way as good as was described☹️ It was all very tasteless....even the salad dressing was so boring. I would love to go back and get another meal one day soon and see if this is the new norm, or just a bad day.

I enjoy a restaurant that has a small menu with food prepared well vs a menu with too many choices and so-so food quality. The wine list was very good and offered some very good wines at very reasonable prices, some that I would consider bargains. Of course, it helps to know something about the wines to take advantage of it. A terrific job was done ensuring tables were appropriately spaced. The server was friendly, conversational all the while remaining efficient. Very glad to see the Inn has survived the lockdown and people returning. I've passed along our experience to our family members who previously visited the restaurant but have yet to return.

Had lunch at the Mansion Restaurant with friends. Food was very good for the price (Oxford Country Breakfast for me, Ricotta Stuffed Rigatoni for spouse). Ambiance was good also (Good social distancing and not too noisy). Inn's facilities were acceptable considering the Covid-19 situation.

Elmhurst restaurant remains one of our favourite high end restaurants & usually attend once a year as we live in London. Many years ago, our families used to go their for New Years dinner when our children were growing up & have many fond cherished memories of those times together & the excellent service & seafood provided. Highly recommend
