We took my mother here for a birthday dinner - and it was incredible. Food was wonderful - service very formal but good. I don't think you could go wrong with whatever you order here. Pricey - but its what you pay in places like this. Great food experience.

We generally avoid coming here on the weekends as it can get very busy. If you plan to go on a weekend or during major holidays, be sure to call ahead for reservations. I know some people have not had good experiences here but I'm not one of them. Every time we've been to the Duncan House, it's been great.... More

Went for a birthday dinner for one of our friends. Hadn't been here in almost 18 years, the duck was every bit as delicious as I remembered. All my family enjoyed their meals. Fantastic night out for all.

We attended a lunch function here and we were not disappointed. I had the Caesars salad and prime rib. WOW!! My associates were also very happy with their meals. The service was fantastic, very attentive waiters.

We were looking for a western meal to offset the Chinese food of the holiday and selected The David Duncan House because the menu and reviews looked good. We started with the Escargot Bourguignonne and the Grilled Calamari. Everyone loved the Escargot; they were the standard presentation in the shell with lots of garlic and butter. We ordered the Grilled... More

It was a Sunday afternoon when we arrived at David Duncan House with my parents ( two seniors in their mid-80s) and were welcomed by the friendly hostess who took our coats to the coat check and escorted us to a beautiful table set within a private corner. Service was fast but not rushed, the waiters were friendly yet professional... More

Good steak, I had the peppercorn steak and my girlfriend had rib steak. Steak was good, veggies very overcooked. Service was slow and inattentive. Had to flag every time Creme brûlée was very good
