the food was excellent: my husband and I both had veal dishes(Weiner and Jeager). The veal was tender and fried up crispy...both with excellent sauces. We shared the polenta appetizer. I like polenta/husband does not. Even he was happy to eat half the polenta dish. The restaurant was very clean though very dated in décor.....the carpet is very old/worn and the drop ceiling panels less than attractive. Overall the the atmosphere is dated and tired but clean. Will still go back for the food though! The clientele was quite varied: folks were there wearing everything from dressed up to sweats and TShirts.
I'll start from the end. The desserts are perfect. The chef really knows how NOT to overuse sugar. The mousse is excellent. Entrees are crazy. The veal is just right. I love haricot verre (did i spell that right?) and they are often the chef's choice. Done right. Steaks are grilled as they should be and they way you like them. The chef will give you suggestions and make anything you ask for with a twist. I have never had such good salad dressing. No choice - not necessary. It's tangy, tart and hot - absolutely great and the correct amount. I had the chicken satay with peanut sauce to die for. And finally, or should I say, first, the soups are out of this world. And kinds you don't expect - cream of celery is the best. You know you're in good hands when even the small things - side dishes, salad dresssing, soups, coffee - are just right. Start your meal by ordering dessert first, then work backwards. But don't miss a thing. Kudos to such a find in Reading, Pa. We are not worthy!....L&J
Gees!What is the 2nd review talking about!!
This Place is the best Place for Food, service, and atmosphere. The owners are wonderful and will cater to any specialties. I have had many experiences throughtout Berks county, and so forth. I guarantee you will not go wrong with this Inn.
Arbor Inn is a hidden jewel. The menu presents a broad selection of creative choices, the food is freshly and exquisitely prepared, and the service is friendly and down to earth. The knotty pine on the walls is a throwback to the 50s, but there's certainly nothing old fashioned about the cuisine here. Frank and Diannah clearly know what they are doing. They are CIA trained and worked in some fine restaurants in NYC before settling in Reading.
The chef-owners are clearly on the right track at Frank and Diannah's. Food is excellent and different and the atmosphere is friendly and cozy. We have taken people from all over the country and the world here and they have been more than pleased. Many of the diners seem to know each other but there is no sense of being an outsider. Very welcoming.
so excellent! best place i've ever eaten at! I've been there several times and only had to wait for my food once( it was V-Day). Desserts are to die for, I've been to several other places but no one makes food like Arbor Inn.
This place is awesome... Great service outstanding food, overall a fantastic experience. Not alot of quality places like this one out there. You can tell they love what they do and care about the food and you!!! Great place.
too loud....smoking from bar infiltrates dining room....service uneven.....food is very good....used to be better. this sums it up quite completely. nothing else needs to be said. if you don't like it....don't display it...a little like their service
