    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We had enjoyed previous visits to the CG. However, this time there were several problems. The prime rib was not cooked to order, and just not very good. After dinner coffee was stone cold. The blueberry cobbler was over cooked and dried out. Finally, the two bills presented to the table were different and caused confusion and delay. The manager came over to discuss our experience and removed a couple of items from the bill, which we greatly appreciated. We really like the CG and hope this was just an off night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/20/2008
    We sat outside on a beautiful afternoon and loved it. Noise is a big factor for us; if it is very noisy inside we wouldn't like it. My scallops were great. Two people with us had wild salmon which was overcooked since the waiter said it would be medium rare. I didn't care for the blueberry sauce that was served with the salmon and the crabcakes - it was a little "blah"; and I thought it was odd to serve it with two dishes. We would like to go for happy hour, but only if you can sit outside. We go out to happy hour much more often than for dinner. We would choose another restaurant if you can't do happy hour outside. We did have a wonderful time. The waiter and the chef were very accommodating with special requests. Thank you.

    Our server was excellent! Each of the wait staff acknowledged and greeted us on our special evening and even the dessert said "happy anniversary". The ambience of the restaurant was good; however, the guests at the nearby table were very noisy and we could hear their entire conversation. And we experienced the joy of those in the bar watching sports. Would have loved it if the restaurant was quieter as we celebrated our anniversary. We did not, however, allow those distractions to interfere with our enjoyable evening. And as we were leaving, a staff member wished us happy anniversary! Very classy!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/17/2008
    I have been to Calcutta Grill multiple times and it seems that they have difficulty with managing the restaurant. About 6 months ago, we thought they were heading in the right direction but at our last dinner, it had gone downhill. First, there were four of us for dinner and every item that we were going to eat had recently been taken off of the menu (Prime Rib Dip, Spicy Penne, and Chicken Saltem Boca). Also, at 7:15, they had already run out of the spinach and artichoke dip. The service was also not up to par. It took awhile before anyone took our drink order and then we had to ask for the bread and spreads. The service seemed very slow. I was very disappointed in the restaurant.

    This was hands down the worst $170.00 dining experience of my life. We thought we were taking our wives/mothers to a nice brunch at Calcutta Grill. Not the case! We were ushered into the giant ballroom with hundreds of other guests to enjoy the buffet, which was sub-par and then finding ourselves chasing down the waitress (which we were mandated to tip 20%) to give us drinks. SHe failed miserably at this and so we decided to help ourselves to the pitchers of water and coffee. We love Newcastle, but this will be our last trip back for food, golf or otherwise. Open Table might want to think twice about partnering with Newcastle/Calcutta Grill in the future! Jack Breeden 425.466.0250

    Our waitress was the best one I have ever had. I took my Grandmother here for Mother's Day and she asked for a special menu item when the restaurant was only serving a buffet. The waitress not only made the special request to the kitchen, but also made sure, throughout our brunch, that we had everything we needed (i.e., filled coffee, enough plates and silverware). This was a very memorable experience for a special day. Thank you.

And one would think that they'd have a knock-out Anold Palmer since it's a golf course :) On the other hand, the desserts were delicioso! We had the smores chocolate dessert along w/the apple cobbler.

If I were looking to complain (I'm not), a few more veggies on that pile of tiny-chopped potatoes (which were wonderful too). My husband's Chicken Saltimbocca was excellent as well. The beautifully scripted "Happy Birthday" on his desert plate was also a nice touch. Our service was absolutely impeccable!!!

    Food is mediocre on a regular basis. No tempting or unique dishes, unless you count meatloaf ;P View is a 10 on a nice or, well any day really where you can sit outside. Cocktails are a disappointment. Staff is unfortunately equally mediocre and service is honestly not memorable. Only draw seems to be golf (if u play) and the view, otherwise don't set your sights or palate high as you'll be let down. FYI Sandwiches are HUGE and BACON seems to be served with almost everything at lunch.
