Schlesinger's Chop House
Almost perfectEverything about the place is near perfect. Only thing you can say negative would be the price of everything on the menu is high.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnd amazing night outWent out with some friends, I had warned them it was a bit pricey, but its worth EVERY penny. We enjoyed 3 appetizers, shrimp cocktail, onion rings, and ahi tuna. They were all amazing. 1/2 of us got 18 ounce bone in rib-eyes the other 1/2 got seafood. The steaks were spot on, both in flavor and level of doneness. The crab cakes received high marks from our party. We ended with a bananna's foster cheesecake, after much complaining from our full group they finally relented and tried it. The first comment was "That's probably the best thing I have ever had".6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Steaks Around- Hands Down!We are frequent diners at Schlesinger's. having said that, it sometimes is hard for a great restaurant to continue to give 5 Star Service, 5 Star Food, and of course 5 Star Steaks! This restaurant has done that and more! There were also some innovative spoecials and new choices on the menu, but it's all Good! no, wait, It's GREAT!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first time hereHad my very first meal here at Schlesingers. Have to say I was very impressed with what me and my gf ate. The butter they offered with our table bread had to be the best kind we had at any restaurant. Definitely had a sweet taste to it. Our calamari fritta appetizer was delicious. I had the french onion soup and it was very rich with flavor. For entrees, I had the 16 oz ribeye with baked potato and she had the seafood trio. Both dishes were perfectly done. And for desert we had the chocolate punctuation. Not the best desert ever made, but was done well. The only complaint I have is the pricing on dishes. Maybe it's because of the style of restaurant or location. But it doesn't hurt to splurge once in awhile. Will come back soon6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience!My husband and I had lunch here for our anniversary. The food was excellent and the service impeccable! When the manager found out it was our anniversary, she comp'd a small bottle of champagne for us! The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet, as well! We would definitely return here, and not wait for an occasion the next visit! The Sunday brunches menu looks scrumptious, as well!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerOutstainding service and food. Only minor inconvenience is that I had orderd flowers delivered to the restaurant but the hostess was not aware of it so I had to ask about them. Meal was late, but manager offered complimentary dessert. Server provided complimentary champagne split for anniversary.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunchI surprised my husband with lunch here for his birthday, and he loved the pan fried flounder with white wine sauce. Also the dessert that they brought him even had a candle for his birthday : )
Nice touch, very classy, and close to our work.

Looking forward to returning!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA great nightMy wife and I went here to celebrate our 5th anniversary, it was very nice, we got a table by the fire place, steak was cooked to perfection, classy background music, was a little empty that evening due to rain. Overall it was a good experience, they gave us a glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary as well. We'll probably go back on another special occasion, pretty pricey but worth it, been to a lot of other places that were not worth the money, I'll definitely be going back sometime.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DiningAfter reading several reviews we choose Schlesinger's to celebrate my son's college graduation and I couldn't have been more pleased, they even accommodated a last minute change in our reservation time for a party of 11. Amy, our server did a wonderful job handling our large boisterous party. We particularly enjoyed the she crab soup and one of our party practically licked the bowl of his carrot ginger soup. The fresh mozzarella on the caprese salad was superb and several of us enjoyed the perfectly medium rare lamb chops. All in all a wonderful dining experience and highly recommended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food was excellentService and food was excellent would highly recommend to anyone for a special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining in Newport NewsSchlesinger's Chop House is a great dining experience for everyone but I enjoy dining there just with my wife. It is quiet, elegant, romantic, offers quality service that is there when you need it and not bothering you if you don't. You would have to go to Paris to get better food and even if you go to Maxim's you would have to be on a first name basis with their Master Chef and speak excellent French and spend some big bucks. Schlesinger's is not cheap but by paying just a little more you get a fine dining experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood DiningQuaint, & personable. Great Brunch, great service, all around quality dining experience for any couple or small gathering for fine dining.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch around!The best brunch in Newport News. Everything is homemade and delicious. High quality ingredients like smoked salmon and shrimp salad. Amazing desserts.... they even have a pastry chef on staff which is unusual for Newport News. Nicely cooked prime rib. Even the eggs benedicts were cooked perfectly which is hard to achieve in a buffet.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAttention to DetailThe ambiance of Schlesinger's was very inviting. Our server was on point to insure that everything was to our liking from menu selection to wine selection to dessert selection. We were celebrating an anniversary and were pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary bottle of champagne to commemorate the occasion. We chose the restaurant because I wanted oysters. Schlesinger's seemed to be the only restaurant in the area that served oysters on their menu, I was very happy and pleased with my menu selection, it was prepared exquisitely. I was a satisfied diner. Our server Katarina was very attentive. You could almost taste the food from the way that she described it. Her care she took to make our evening special was impressive.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my administrative staffI took my administrative staff there to show my appreciation for thir hard work and loyalty to the firm.

I went to Schlesinger's as a treat for my birthday lunch with some of my co workers. We were VERY impressed with the restaurant as a whole. Everything from decor, service that was impeccable, and food that was amazing. I cant wait to come back and try one of their steaks if they can make a Burger taste as good as they did. I would highly recommend the Schlesinger's burger, and the French Onion Soup. Its worth every penny.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was veryFood and service was very good, but a little pricy for the area.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to the precedentLived up to the precedent of each of our previous visits.

One small issue was the cigar smoke that would come into the restaurant each time the waitress went outside to serve the party that was smoking. Other than that, the restaurant was lovely.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite for SteaksOur favorite for steaks of any kind, the Staff is always attentive(Thanks to Steve) and the manager always stops by to ensure you are completely satisfied. The food is always top-notch. It's a great place for a romantic dinner!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Wonderful Evening!When we visit my son in Newport News, we always treat him at Schlesinger's. The meal and service are always special. On Saturday, the staff was especially accomodating, permitting us to interrupt our meal as we watched the end of the NCAA game. My prime rib may have been the best I have ever had. My son never fails to have the filet and lobster, especially while Dad is there. A little pricey, but well worth it. Our family strongly recommends this restaurant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a satisfied future customerMy fiancé and I made a reservation for 8pm but we showed up early and were seated immediately. We had the table through the back by the fire place. The setting was very cozy, romantic, peaceful even. We did however have a group at the long table who were loud an boisterous but it was ok because their language nor their conversation was rude or disrespectful. They even apologized when they left.
Out waitress, Erin, was a total delight. She checked on us regularly and made some of the best recommendations. We even met the DM I believe. The food was amazing. My fiancé inhaled the entire 24oz porterhouse. I had the red pepper bisque, simply AMAZING!! We will definitely become regulars. I'm glad we stumbled upon this place.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Easter BrunchEaster Brunch was very well done, lots of variety and well prepared. Our server Jim was outstanding, despite a good crowd he was on top of everything. Brunch is always great at Schlesingers but Easter brunch was even better --- well worth the cost. Their food is always great and they outdid themselves on this occasion, their service is their trademark and they were on top of their game.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Schlesinger's forWe went to Schlesinger's for a holiday brunch and it was fantastic.
