Warm and cozy restaurant with very nice service. The entree is not a large portion but the dessert will feed you well. Quite expensive.

It was a very elegant atmosphere paired with warm friendly service. Food was suburb! There were six of us and all were pleased with their meals. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious! Others raved about their salmon and fillets.

From the minute we walked in the door to the minute we left, there was so much attention to detail. When we walked in the door, the first thing they asked was could they take my coat. The host then offered us a cocktail by the fireplace in the library where a waitress took our order right away. When our... More

The food is simply as good as it gets, the service, superior. The atmosphere and level of attention to each guest is the real magic of the restaurant at the Carnegie House. Love this place!

Paul is back and so is the 5 star dining experience. This restaurant has been around since @ 2000. Paul helped The Inn become incredibly well known for its fine dining experience. Paul is known for his french flair, although his menu offers a nice selection for varying tastes. Paul left to start his own restaurant for a while and... More

The Inn Hosted an onsite event, breakfast, lunch and a private reception. Elegant and spectacular best describes this event. Every one of the attendees were amazed with the beautiful location and the amazing food. This community is very lucky to have a restaurant and a chef of this superior quality...totally thrilled with everything about the Carnegie Inn and Spa.

I must admit that I have been dining in State College for many years but had never even heard of the Carnegie Inn until a colleague invited me to dinner. What a pleasant surprise! We were met at the door and escorted to the library for pre-dinner drinks, which we enjoyed by the fire. Upon moving to the adjacent dining... More

I can't imagine that our last dinner at the Carnegie Restaurant could be any better than the one before that but Chef Paul continues to surprise. We've eaten there a couple of times in the past few weeks and everything, every time, was done to perfection. Chef Paul and his staff make each dinner memorable. Kudos to the Carnegie Inn... More
