Absolutely wonderful dining
Absolutely wonderful dining experience; our server Bethanie went above and beyond our expectations. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversay and she created a very special dessert platter in our honor. Can't wait to return.

Very good food and service.
Very good food and service. The 3-course dinner special was outstanding, especially the short-ribs! One noticeable complaint - the first glass of wine for my wife, was a nice, and expected pour, nothing too large or small. However, the second glass was about a third of that initial glass. So small, it was a shock. With restaurants already charging an expected and understandable premium for wine, the insult of such a tiny glass was honestly beyond belief.

My wife and I went here for
My wife and I went here for our Anniversary and had a very nice time. We reserved our table online and when we arrived it was ready. The service was very friendly and prompt. We have very nice drinks followed by both a well presented and delicious meal. I was surprised at how well priced the food was so all in all, it was a very nice experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a dinning experience that can be both semi-formal or casual.

Mother's Day at the Safari Room
We had lunch for four at noon and were seated right away. The ambiance was wonderful and the service was good. They were originally out of their signature coffee cake but were able to procure some addition cakes from the Palm Court across the street. While my mom and sister enjoyed splitting a Crab Louis, my partner found his crab omelet dry and over cooked. I'm not sure we will return there anytime soon.

Perfect for Mother's Day brunch!
My mom loves the Davenport Hotel and we all had never been to the Safari Room. The experience was excellent! The food was superb, and the service was top notch. We especially enjoyed all the wonderful decor to fit the name of the restaurant. I highly recommend the Safari Room for Mother's Day brunch, or any other special occasion!

Enjoyed our lunch.
This was my first time dining at the Safari Room. The food was delicious, the service was friendly, and the little desserts were just right with coffee at the end of the meal.

Nice for a special occasion
We were celebrating our son's graduation from college. It was a Sunday evening, nice atmosphere, wonderful service, and the food was very good. Other reviews had mentioned a problem with the noise level but that was not an issue at all - probably due being a Sunday. We utilized the 3 course special menu (all choices were $17.95) for our group so we were able to know just what we would be spending. We sat at a table near the windows. Very special time. Would highly recommend it.

All around great dining experience
Good menu selection priced very well. Three course menu is excellent value. Service is fast and friendly. Safari Room has become a favorite family gathering place for special occasions. We will definitely be back and likely will recommend to friends.

Always LOVE going to the Tower
The food and service is consistently top notch. Everything is as you would expect from a fancy restaurant with the exception of the pricing. The safari room keeps their prices at a very tasteful level. I don't recall ever leaving there with a bill above $60 for two. Your food is served very quickly as well, making this a great place to have lunch.

Friend's birthday party
We went to the Safari Room for a friends birthday because of the amazing happy hour. Our friend is a scotch connoisseur and collector, and this seemed to be the best option to celebrate his refined tastes for an affordable price (everything in the bar is 1/2 price!). The ambience and menu is amazing, and our server was okay-- although she seemed to be new, so that was probably the issue. All in all an excellent experience, and a great time! Highly recommended.

Awesome dining experience~
Checked into the Davenport after a six-hour drive. Arrived mid-afternoon very hungry, looking for a convenient late lunch/early dinner. Found the Safari Bar on Open Table (love this app, by the way). Of course, we were seated immediately and received excellent personal service from Melinda. We asked for a wine suggestion and were served a vintage perfectly suited to our request. The meal was wonderful -- well prepared and presented, especially in the middle of the afternoon.

We had a great time during our visit. The food is always good and your drinks are pricey but very good so I guess they are worth it. Our server, Andrew, was the best. He was polite, gave great service and even helped make our girls night out even better. He interacted with us and made us feel very much welcome.
So many times we have gone to other places for our ladies night out and though the food may be good it's the service that brings us back. We are already looking forward to the nice evening at the Safari Room.

perfect downtown location
A very nicely decorated restaurant in a relatively new downtown hotel that has been constructed (successfully) to look like a classic. Went for lunch before a theater matinee. The restaurant was perfectly located, street parking was available (or valet), food was quite good (chargrilled burger and crab omelet), waitress was delightfully friendly and appropriately attentive. We will be back.

3 course excellance!
Although the online menu listed different entres than what was actually offered, I found it to be quite a lovely surprise. I had a garden salad, herb roasted salmon and creme brulee:) I have a hard time finding a restaurant that can make a devine creme brulee and this was by far the best I've tasted in a great while. My honey had the same as me except he chose the pot pie for his entree. This was also a nive dish, but not one I would personally go to a restaurant to eat, especially with the other delectible choices on the menu. Service was 5 star!
