Diner Reviews
  • "We ordered the specials and the food was delicious. The server was very attentive but not intrusive. I have never been disappointed with Cheever's food. It's always top notch!"

  • "My boyfriend and I came here before heading to the ballet. The food was delicious and the server was phenomenal--very attentive and had a great personality. When our server discovered this was our first time at Cheever's, he said, "Well, dessert is free!" We enjoyed our meal but ran out of time and thought we'd have to forego dessert. Our wonderful server reminded us about the free dessert and suggested we take it to go! How kind! That without prompting he remembered his offer of free dessert and didn't want us to miss out. He boxed up dessert for us and we enjoyed it for the next two days. Additionally, he boxed up the rest of my delicious molasses chicken and ADDED a roll fresh from the oven in the back that we didn't have at our table."

  • "We made our reservations early in order to make an 8:00 performance at the theater. We stated it on our reservation and again upon arrival. It took some time to get our drinks and then too long to get our food. We made the mistake of ordering dessert, asking if we would still be able to leave by 7:30,; we were assured that we could. Didn't happen. We didn't get our checks until 7:35 and then the wait was on to complete the transactions. Our desserts went into boxes as we rushed to make our curtain. Our server was short with us and at times actually rude. At one point she said, " I'm doing the best I can!""

  • "The food was really good and service was okay. It's a small place and they were really busy so it was pretty loud. I felt like our waiter had a hard time hearing us. But he still did a good job. I didn't realize their menu was seasonal so I wasn't able to get one of my favorite dishes, but the food was still great. I got the short rib fettucini which was great. My date got a shrimp pasta which he said was okay but would have preferred something else. We split the monkey bread for dessert and it was excellent. Really my biggest complaint was the noise level but that wasn't the restaurant's fault (the table next to us was just a bit too exuberant haha)."

  • "I've eaten here a few times with excellent food. This time was a Thursday night and everything I had was marginal. The rolls are my favorite ,but they were very dry. I ordered the grilled Caesar and was wishing they had a real Caesar. I thought they used to have one on the menu. And, the worst part was I ordered halibut with the spicy shrimp risotto , and the fish was overlooked and no shrimp at all in the risotto. I always have pieces of shrimp in it whenever I had it last time. I'm hoping it was just an off night for the kitchen. I will go back on a Friday to see if it is any different. If I go back any time soon."

  • "We went for brunch and really enjoyed the food they delivered. The breading on the chicken fried steak and fried chicken (with waffles) was wonderfully seasoned and crunchy without any greasiness to it. Additionally the bloody mary, while just a tad smaller that I would have liked, was well-made with just the right amount of alcohol and spice level. The only two issues we had were the wobbly table and slow service. The table we were seated at was a small round table that was very unstable and we did the best we could with the old sugar-packet-under-the-table-leg trick. Regarding the slow service there were only two of us and the brunch experience lasted two-and-a-half hours from sitting down to leaving."

  • "The food was good with the exception of the Shrimp and Pasta dish. It was a little bland with too much pasta and not enough shrimp or sauce."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This place has a very nice brunch menu with a wide variety of common brunch dishes with a twist as well as some unique creations by the chef. THe prices are OK if you consider that the portions are HUGE. We ordered a chicken strudel as an appetizer and it was so big that I had no room left for my entree. Vary flavorful. Be sure to ask the waiter if your dish is spicy as their definition of spicy is different than mine... I don't like sipcy food and even those dishes that we were told were not spicy, I found them to have a little kick at the end."

  • "Hello, I had brunch on Sunday and was disappointed 100%. The host was very rude the food was undercooked they had to take my food back. Brought me a second plate of uncooked food! The service was very unfriendly. All-around disappointed. Not the place I would go for brunch. I've had dinner at that location and it's amazing!!!"

  • "I don't know the name of our server but he was tall with strawberry blondish hair, clean shaven. He was attentive but not overly so; he was pleasant, funny, accomodating, soft-spoken, delightful. He brought out a knife for my friend's chicken fried steak (she didn't have to ask and he did this before the meal came) and placed it on the table beside her arm. He did it so "cat-like" she didn't even notice. He filled our waters 2-3 times after I had paid the bill. That is the first time I've ever had servce after I've paid. The food was out of this world. I had the salmon, spinach and mashed potatoes. Unbelievable food."

  • "I took my boyfriend for his birthday. But we were sitting next to a group and it was way too loud. Not really sure why they would sit a group not to the tables for two? But I would go back but as a group not for a date night."

  • "One of the best meals I've had in a long time. I got the flat iron streak specia, which was excellent, my wife got the short ribs, also very good. We finished with the ice cream ball, which lived up to the hype. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Enjoyed the meal. The food temperature and flavors were great - Unfortunately, they ran out of english muffins for eggs benedict? Server Joshua was very attentive however they forgot to bring my toast with my meal. Lots of activity pre Thunder game - will definitely go back again."

  • "We have gone to Cheever's many times. We usually get the same thing…the Tortilla crusted Halibut with risotto which is excellent. But tonight I tried the swordfish special and it too was great. The price on the Halibut has dramatically risen over the years and is now among the top three most expensive items. A new menu was unveiled and gone is the wedge salad and the regular caesar salad. The wedge was very good and what I usually ordered. But with it's absence I tried the new salad, a grilled caesar salad. May I say, they need to work this one out. The lettuce, a measly portion arrived very wilted and the presentation and taste was lackluster. Not worth the price. I've had a grilled caesar elsewhere and this doesn't come close!"

  • "My wife and I have enjoyed Cheevers for several years, but with the changes/additions to the menu, it's taken an even bigger step toward being one of our regular go to's."

  • "Cheever's has always been a favorite of mine. On my last visit, I brought a vendor from New York that enjoys seafood. She was very impressed with our server and with the food. The setting was quite and relaxed, which was perfect for discussing business details. As always, Cheever's left a lasting impression on me and my guest."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food was amazing. The waiter however needs to learn to make eye contact and hang around long enough to hear everything you have to say. The entire staff wasn't very friendly except for the host. The food runner was the friendliest person we encountered. No one else even acknowledged our presence. Probably will not go back."

  • "We were a party of 9 for a Saturday brunch with 2 young children. They put us in our own dining room where we could visit easily, the children could get up and walk around, it was perfect. Service was excellent! We all ordered something different, everyone was very pleased. The blue cheese potato chip appetizer was not all that great."
