    i can see where this can be a very good place, pricey, but good. but when you start off by being sat in the back (when 90% have a GREAT view) and then the waiter is more concerned with his party of 16 than your party of 4 (hence most of your food is luke warm) it does't work out to a 5 star ...............for me.

    Our lunch was disappointing. The food was lacking flavor and color on the plate. The salmon was over cooked and also lacked flavor. The service was also not to the standard that's expected at Simons. If you're going to go to enjoy the view, be sure to sit in the bar. And stick with the bar menu. The service there is always excellent and you're never disappointed with the bar items. I say this every time I'm disappointed with the dining room and full dinners. It also took 30 minutes to pay after we got our check because they couldn't find the rewards program information.

    Brought mom for 89th birthday dinner. Early dinner but still pretty full with lots of noise, not able to converse much. Her prawns were very good and artistically plated. My New York steak was not tender and under seasoned for my taste. The portabella stuffed mushrooms were great. Good wine at moderate price. Attentive server with pleasing personality. All staff we encountered were solicitous. Couldn't ask for a better view!

    Our meal was excellent. This was my wife's birthday and they were prepared, halibut cheeks which are great were reserved for her, they went out of their way. The cheese kurds were fantastic along with the end cut of prime rib (thank you). You made my wife's birthday a hit. We have been here many times and I the service has been flawless.

    Went on a Sunday evening, not too many people. We were seated by the windows where the view was very nice. The service was adequate and commensurate with the prices paid, thing is, the food wasn't... We had the crab stuffed halibut, which was overcooked and dry, and the seafood étouffée which is best described as...meh. Both dishes carried a hefty price tag and were disappointing. Take note though, we had the scratch grand margaritas and loved them. Overall, go for the bar and appetizers, skip the overpriced underachievers served in the dining room.

    We always bring our guests here for a meal you can count on to be delicious and fresh. Portions are good. King salmon and stuff halibut awesome- Oysters Rockefeller were tasty but not the best we've had. Lemon drop cocktail not tasting like made from real lemon juice- had that bottled taste. Service was appropriately paced. Had specifically asked for a window table when I made our reservations but didn't get one.

    When making our reservation, I put in the comments that it was for our anniversary. When we arrived they had rose petals on the table (which was by the window so we had a great view) and the young lady seating us wished us a happy anniversary. We ordered our appetizer (crab&artichoke dip, steak bites and shrimp), which was so good! Our waiter was awesome, our dinner's perfect, we had absolutely no complaints! Once again, Simon & Seafort's exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend!

    It was a wonderful night! Food was spectacular and the time frame is accurate for waiting. You are guaranteed a tasteful delight when it arrives. The staff was amazing and very polite. The waiter was a hoot! He was most helpful in all questions and recommendations on the menu! I reserved online and ordered flowers on their site.(Which brought tears to her eyes) It was romantic and a very respectful atmosphere. I have to say it takes a team to keep a good business in fine dining going. And I have to give kudos to everyone who works there. You guys made the night happen. Thank you. Keep up the team work! Also..you must try the key lime pie...priceless ;)

    We've been taking guests to eat here for many years, but our recent visit was a very poor experience. Our food took an extremely long time to arrive - despite us having a couple of drinks & appetizers. Our waiter seemed have disappeared for 15 minutes and someone else brought our food, and it was lukewarm when it arrived. The broccoli was dark green and overcooked. I did let the server know. He asked if I would like another plate, but I told him all our dishes were lukewarm and we did not have time for another round of food to be prepared (I didn't want to make a big deal of it). They also offered us a complimentary dessert for the table to share but we had other dessert plans. The view is great.

    I made the reservation and dove in.A lot of good reviews, the hostess greeted right away, shuffled us to the back corner of the restaurant must have thought we were underdressed and did not meet their "high standards".Our first server took our app order, then we got a different server which took our entree order.A third server checked up on us, we asked for the check and the when they came back to us and must have been very put upon that night commented "would you just give that table their check". Sorry for spending our hard earned money to get classless service and mediocre food.Do your self a favor and go to more popular "Alehouse's nearby to get better service, and better than average food".

    We have a team dinner here and were hoping to sample some good Alaskan seafood. From our team of 8 people, 3 meals had to be sent back, and at least 2 others had complaints. When one of the members of our party who sent their (cold) fish back decided not to order a second option, she was promptly served with her bill (for wine) as an offer that she was free to leave the establishment. OVerall, none from our party was particularly impressed by the food or service. It was really too bad, because we had all been looking forward to a nice experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend or business colleague.

    We frequent this establishment, it is my wife's favorite. Halibut cheeks were not aviailable this time around but they offered to prepare the halibut the same way they do the cheeks, that was very thoughtful. I had the prime rib which is excellently seasoned (minus horseradish). Had to send back as I recieved it with horseradish on the rib. I recieved the same cut of meat back with the horseradish removed, the flavor unfortunately was still on the meat (wiped or washed off?). The waitress who was excellent (Denise) offered to return, but I told her not to (meal delay already). Simon's is excellent and I hope this was just an aberration. Will return though for this is my wife's favorite place.

    S & S is usually a great place. This time my MEATLOAF was dry, the SEAFOOD ÉTOUFFÉE had WAY too much hot seasoning (my guest couldn't eat it) and my Vodka Collins tasted like syrup. My waiter/bartender tried to tell me it couldn't be made less "syrupy." Shockingly lame, but I didn't want to make a scene. I ordered beer. Love this place. Hope my less-than-good experience isn't the beginning of a decline. Will try again and continue recommending.
