Doylestown area dinner

Miss Brooklyn Dec 11, 2008 06:58 AM

As a Christmas gift for my brother and sister-in-law who live in Doylestown, I'd like to get a gift certificate for a nice dinner nearby. A search of this board turned up Arielle's Country Inn. Any other suggestions in the area? A nice, maybe even romantic, atmosphere would be a plus.

      Be sure to let us know what was decided and how they liked it. Chowhounds love closure! :)

      Another nice place is the Carversville Inn.

        The Carversville Inn is pretty good, but not a place I would give a gift certficate to.go to. Stick with the other three or four that are recommended.

        I don't think you can go wrong with Slate Bleu, Honey or the Knight House. Unlike many on this board, I'm not a big fan of Il Melograno and the Waterwheel isn't a favorite either.

          I'd also addd the Knight House. Very romantic atmosphere, live music on weekends.

            I also must give a thumbs up to the Knight House.

            Honey is just about our favorite restaurants in Doylestown.
