Previously, we have only attended
Previously, we have only attended a wedding reception at the Desmond Americana. This was our first time (but not our last) at Simpon's Restaurant. We were celebrating our 47th Anniversary and could not have picked a better restaurant anywhere in the Capital District. The receptionist greeted us by our name and showed us immediately to our table. Everything was excellent from the ambiance, food, waitress, and the easy quick way to reserve a table online.

We were looking for classic, traditional fare and Simpson's delivered. This is the place to go for classic New England goodness - from the ambience, the delicious New England Clam Chowder (a well deserved award winner!), the awesome French Onion Soup (which my husband could not pass up) and the beyond superb prime rib complete with au jus, creamy horseradisch, wonderful popover and terrific baked potato - everything was absolutely prepared to perfection! It was one of the most satisfying, tastiest meal and certainly the best prime rib anywhere!

Coming Home Goodness!
Many restaurants offer great food and excellent dining experience but it takes a deft balance of classic but masterfully prepared cuisine with a feel at home ambiance to bring us back again and again! Simpson's at the Desmond does just that. The food is consistently perfect, the ambience is always warm and cozy and the service nicely familiar! It feels like going to grandma's for one of her out-of-this world classics every Sunday! Love this place!

Relax and enjoy.
If you have had a trying day and need some quiet time to relax and unwind then the Desmond Simpson's Grille is just the place to go. The food is delicious, the service is exceptional, and the relaxing music and quiet is beautiful. Give it a try and see if I am not right. Enjoy.

The service was some of the best that we have ever had, anywhere.
Clam appetizer was awesome.
My wife's Sole dish could not have been better.
The Swordfish was very fresh, but a little too much black pepper in the preparation.
Overall I would rate this restaurant a 9 out of 10.

We were just there for a mid-week lunch, so the vibrant bar scene, which can happen at night, was not underway yet.. Thanks.
