Pennsylvania Bakery

Reviewed By Donna S - New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

PA Bakery has been known for quite some time as the "Go-To Bakery" for wedding cakes and specialty desserts in The Central PA Area! They're just AWESOME! My Strawberry Filled Wedding Cake was pure perfection 4 1/2 years ago! So scrumptiously good...... so when a girlfriend of mine suggested today that we meet at PA Bakery to celebrate my birthday with dessert and coffee I was super excited! The selection is massive! You think, " I'll have one of these, one of those and yes one of everything!!!!" How does one choose??? I mean seriously! But after 5 minutes of going from display case to display case I settled on their Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake and my girlfriend ordered their Mini Raspberry Chocolate Torte! Oh my goodness......our taste buds were thanking us BIG TIME! Total perfection!! Their cozy seating area is perfect for good "girl talk!" We had a blast!!

Authentic french crepes in a European atmosphere

Reviewed By CityGirl53156 - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

I had heard great things about this place and finally got a chance to go. It definitely did not disappoint. The menu boasted many different savory and sweet crepes with excellent combinations. The place is tiny but size doesn't matter in food quality. I will definitely be back!

The Garlic Poet Restaurant & Bar - CLOSED

Reviewed By DrakeBaer - Princeton, New Jersey

Hard to know how they can keep this so affordable, given the quality of the local ingredients, substantial portions and imaginative fare. Lettuce wraps with chicken and the calamari were unlike anything we've had before. They seem to emphasize house-fermented kimchi and surprisingly effective contrasts of flavors, everything house-made and many of the ingredients house-grown and -raised. Completely original and un-cliched without seeming like 1990s foodie pretension. The cocktails are a particular highlight. Surprisingly good, live music on the Sat night we were here. What a find, in central Pennsylvania, of all places!

I took my wife here on a Friday night. We were the first to arrive which was a few minutes before $6 but when we left, it was about full..... the food was perfect! I can't say anything more, the food was perfect!

If you like upscale and good food? This is the place to go. I don't mind paying more to have the upscale feel and good food.

Reviewed By KirkinPA - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

Overall - cocktails were great, and Entrees too. The appetizers were underwhelming.

St. Germaine Cocktail - St. Germaine Elderberry Liquor, New Amsterdam Peach Vodka, sauvignon blanc, club soda, simple syrup, muddled strawberries.

Susquehanna Sunset - Coconut rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, splash Sierra Mist, drizzled with grenadine.

Appetizers:
RockBass Bangin' shrimp - nothing special, Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang shrimp is MUCH better
Ahi Tuna - didn't taste like the best cut, but the wasabi was an entire scoop (of which I could only use a small fraction

Entrees:
Blackened Chicken Alfredo - quite good and a lot of food
Red Snapper - also quite good and a lot of food
Swordfish - also quite good (and a lot of food)

Home 231

Reviewed By East_Coast_Foodie - Anderson, South Carolina

We stopped at Home 231 for dinner during a road trip we were taking down the east coast. We selected this restaurant using the TripAdvisor app looking for a restaurant that was downtown Harrisburg, that had good reviews, and was vegetarian-friendly.

Because we were very tired and hungry after driving 8+ hours thru the most recent nasty snow storm - we called ahead to make sure the restaurant was open and asked about parking. Happily, they were open and had a parking lot 1/2 block away on the same side of the street with a sign identifying it as being a lot shared by local two restaurants.

Using GPS we found the restaurant but could not find the parking lot in the dark and snow. We slowly cruised the street before calling them back. The person who answered snapped at us that the parking lot was just a 1/2 block away and had a sign. Said we saw one lot with no sign saying Home 231, but it had signs on the walls saying each spot was reserved for JHM(?) We asked if that was the same lot. They said no. We cruised the short street 2 more times and gave up. We parked in the lot with the signs saying "Reserved for JHM". As we walked to the restaurant we found a small black sandwich board saying parking for Home 231 ... but it had blown over and was covered with snow in the gutter. We tried to get it to stand-up again, but it blew over before we entered the restaurant. We told a staff member about the sign. It was not a good start to our dining experience.

They seated us in a cute table right at the front bay window. But it was so cold outside, it was miserable sitting near the window. We were too numb and tired to ask to be moved. The restaurant is an old, narrow building and I noticed as we were leaving that the tables near us were all empty and most of the dinners were tucked in at the tables at the back of the house.

Anyway, my vegetarian daughter ordered the Cheese Board and Beet Salad. She said the cheese was tasty, but skimpy for the price. She raved about the Beet Salad. Besides being served as a work of art, the flavor combinations were outstanding.

I ordered an entree that was a marinated/brined 1/2 chicken with a potato and green veggie. I really don't remember the sides. But I was disappointed with the chicken. I had never been served a 1/2 a chicken that had no white meat. I was served a very plump thigh and wing. I know most people say the dark meat has the more flavor, but personally, I am not a fan of dark meat. If the menu had specified the cuts, then I would have known to order a different dish.

We finished the meal with very good coffee and something chocolate. As we left the restaurant, a manager stopped by to apologize about the sign fiasco at the parking lot. Nice gesture, but too late.

Yak N Yeti

Yak N Yeti is a family owned restaurant established only because we have great love and passion for food. The restaurant is the ONLY one that serves exotic Bhutanese and Nepalese cuisines from the Himalayas.

Reviewed By ErnTrekker - PA

Saw this restaurant listed on TA & decided to give it a try. Small intimate dining area with extremely helpful and attentive staff. Being our first experience of Bhutanese & Nepali cuisine, we had questions & our server deftly guided us through the menu. We tried 2 apps (Momo & Sag Pakora) which were fantastic! Our main courses were absolutely delicious & seasoned to perfection. Also enjoyed the Mango Lassi. Can't say enough about the great service!

We definitely will be back to try more dishes!

Highly Recommended!

Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By jerryk1948 - Camp Hill, PA

We arranged with Nino (the owner) to have a private 70th birthday celebration luncheon on a Saturday afternoon for 30 people. We explained what we wanted-a luncheon sized serving with salad, bread, followed by dessert with soft drinks, tea and coffee (we provided the alcohol) for a fixed per person price. We agreed to limit the entree choices to 3.

Everything went off perfectly as we received quality service, larger portions than we expected and a few extras. Dolce Vita has been one of our favorite places to go do for many years. We have had quality experiences and appreciate the personal touch that Nino adds to the experience.

I'm reluctant to give any location a 5 rating but in my view it is earned. I think most reviews should be 3s but I'll usually give them a 4 because it seems like a low rating that somehow reflects against the restaurant in today's reviews.
