    The ambiance of Majestic Grille is always wonderful. It is classy with a touch of whimsy. I usually come for brunch and the food is always excellent. My boyfriend and I usually split the salmon hash and the crab cake benedict. The complementary biscuits are always light, fluffy, and delicious. The majestic mimosa is great because we can fix it just the way we like it (mostly champagne with a hint of OJ). The service was excellent and friendly as always!

    For a first date, this place was romantic, quiet, and offered a variety of selections for both of us. Very cute and cozy in the middle of downtown. We were able to catch the carriage ride to Beale street afterwards. No matter how the relationship turns out, the restaurant and ambiance made for a fun and great 1st date night!!!

    We went for Downtown Restaurant Week. Although We've been there many times before for drinks and appetizers at the bar but this is the first time we've been for a "real" dinner. In spite of the big crowd (for the special Restaurant Week dinner), our server, Donavan, had our food timed perfectly, and everything we had was great. What have we missed? We'll be back again!!

    Patrick and Deni Reilly have taken their restaurant to the next level with not only delicious and beautiful dishes but a dining experience that is consistently a favorite for us. We had our end of year company dinner there this week and with a varied group needing options, it was the perfect choice!!! Complete with a table visit from Patrick himself!! Having a downtown business a block away, it is always our recommendation for a great meal!! Personal favorite is the seared tuna but my husband LOVES the flatbread pizza.

    Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, wonderful food. We had the Cheese and Sausage Platter for an appetizer. It was an excellent mix. For entree my wife had the Bacon Bleu Burger. It was cooked perfectly and came with a side of delicious, piping hot parmesan french fries. You have to try these if you come to Majestic. I had the Ravioli. The Ravioli are goat cheese filled and topped with tomatoes, spinach, and pine nuts. These are fantastic. There's even a low, slow heat to them, just to top it all off. We were so stuffed we couldn't even think about trying dessert. Their bar is well-stocked and their cocktails are very inventive. Overall, this place is great!

    Last Saturday night, we had dinner at the Majestic - one of our favorite places. We have never had a bad meal there. Saturday night was no exception. We split an order of the crab cakes and the Mahi Mahi. Both were well prepared and enough for us to take some home. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The ambiance was very nice as always and there were Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Peggy Lee and other jazz greats wafting overhead in the air. Thanks Majestic. It was a great evening.

    The Majestic was highly recommended by my friends and it lived up to them! We chose the pre-theater dinner. Which included a choice of 2 salads or soup,3 different entrees, and dessert. The food was awesome and the ambiance was just what we wanted and the service was great! We will be visiting again soon!

    My family and I enjoy dining at the Majestic Grille a few times a year (usually in connection with seeing a show at the Orpheum Theater), and we always enjoy the experience. We ate the Majestic most recently on Tuesday night, October 28, 2014. We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. We had been seated for several minutes without meeting our server. Finally, we flagged down a passing server who promised to find ours. Our server arrived and she did ok. The night was busy, and we had to wait for refills and at the end for the check. No big deal. The food, as always, was amazing. The restaurant was loud, but we expected that. It wasn't the best experience we have had there, but we will definitely return.

    Called ahead to see if we could be added than existing reservation and was told that the restaurant was sold out. Got on Open Table and. Oozed a table for just a little later and went early to find many tables empty including the ones next to our friends. We were able to sit next to them but was reprimanded by the manager when we pushed our tables together as he said it would affect the two top tables behind us and not give them enough room. We all crammed on one side of the table and never had anyone sit at the two tops anyway. Food was great, service was great, manager and his silly rules, not so much.

    What a wonderful find! Just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Beale St. You walk into the Majestic Grille and it takes you to a relaxing, clean, comfortable escape. The staff were excellent, from the host to the server. They were very attentive and genuinely seemed happy to be there and to be serving us. The food was excellent, the wine was excellent! Our last night in Memphis was made memorable at this establishment. We will return to this restaurant on our next trip to Memphis.

    We went for a birthday while on vacation. Restaurant was busy on a Friday which is always a good sign. The food was fine, but not exceptional. Our server was not familiar with the menu and was unable to provide input beyond what we could read on the menu. At this price point, I normally encounter servers that have familiarity with the dishes being offered and can help guide through the menu. Coming from Chicago, the pace of service at all Memphis restaurants is a bit slow. The Majestic was no exception. As I say, it's typical for all of Memphis. Our reservation time WAS honored so that's a huge plus. Somewhat recommended.
