    Phyman
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    I had the filet and it was very tender. In fact, it was one of the most tender steaks I have ever eaten. The flavor was OK, but not outstanding. The steak does come by itself on a very hot plate. The meal does include a potato and salad, but no veggies. So be sure to order those if you want them. Service was very good, friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. While the restaurant was pretty full, the noise level was not bad at all. We had a reservation, we were slightly early but seated immediately. Very good experience.

    We made a reservation for 6:00 p.m. and arrived on time. Seemed to have caught them by surprise, although the dining room was nearly empty. Our waiter was obsequious at first, later we had a hard time finding him when we needed something. Seems like his station was spread far apart. Drinks/wine to an unusually long time to arrive. On second round, I had to remind him. Daughter ordered her steak medium-rare, but it came out well-done. Despite saying she could get a different dessert than the ones listed on the special menu, we were charged extra, despite the cost of the dessert was lower than those on the special menu. Food was OK, but should have been better for the prices. Better options elsewhere. The place needs some better supervision.

    Everything was good, except for an annoying waiter, who was intrusive and in our faces throughout the meal. Attentive is a good thing, but intrusive is not. He kept asking us how our food was. When we answered, he kept telling us that he would inform the chef. The meal was great and the Restaurant Week dining experience was great. The salmon was perfectly prepared and the New York strip was tender and cooked medium as ordered. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

    It was couples night and a few of us got together to enjoy one anothers company and to dine on hood food. I ordered the filet mignon and it was one of the best steaks I had. The steak was tender and juicy. Everyone in the group loved their steaks also. We agreed we will be back real soon to try your other dishes. Great location and your wait staff and our server gave us superb attention. Thank you.

    If you get the chance to go to The Summit for a wine dinner, you should take it. I have been to only two. Both have featured excellent food. I am not a wine connoiseur, but I love good food. The chef does an excellent job at pairing the food and wine. This last dinner showcasing Chateau Ste Michelle wine included arugula salad with smoked duck, mini beef wellingtons, lamb shank, and a fruit and whipped cream parfait dessert. These non-menu items with the wine pairings make the wine dinners well worth the price.

    My wife and I selected The Summit Steakhouse as the place to celebrate our fifty-second wedding anniversary. It was a great choice. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. The food was wonderful, delivered in a timely manner, very tasty and satisfying in every aspect. Our waitress was very friendly and catered to our every need. We didn't expect any kind of extra because it was our anniversary, but we did get a dessert which was also wonderful. We selected the Summit Steakhouse because we wanted a great dining experience for our anniversary and we were happy to find the Summit exceeded our expectations in every way.

    A++++. Maybe there are slightly better Steakhouses in Lodo or DTC. Such as Ruth Chris, Brooks, El Frisco, McCormick’s, and most recently Flemings. All are great places, but I wouldn't drive an extra mile if the Summit is close. The others are only marginally better, if even that, but definitely more $$. Summit is about 1/2 mile from our office: we regularly bring clients and this restaurant never disappoints us! Great service, attentive waitresses and waiters. Happy hour in the summer on the deck is fantastic! Live Band and good prices. Nice remodel. This place offers great value, the prices are very reasonable for the high level of quality. Highly recommend!!

    I made reservations for my boyfriends bday. food was amazing I got the roasted chicken and it was moist and flavorful. My boyfriend got a stake he usually drowns it in some kind of sauce. It was cooked perfectly and no sauce was needed. And I didn't spend as much as I thought it would be. Good prices too.

    Took Dad & 2 adult sons here for Father's Day. Food was wonderful except for the veggies. Restaurants are forever serving "crisp, tender" veggies which are barely warm! Yuck! But the main course was superb!! Service? Only so-so. Sean let way too much time elapse before asking how was our food. Took forever to box up the leftovers. And forever to bring the check. But when it came to picking up the payment he was right there at my elbow while I signed it. That was crass. But the food is so good we will be back.

    Ambiance,service was outstanding. Food was not. Both of us had steak dinners and side food, salads, appetizers, french onion soup were all ok. When steak and potatoes came, the steak looked wonderful, it was sizzling hot (could hear it sizzling), but when we cut in we could tell it was already tough. Mine was medium rare and in the middle more rare so you would think it would melt in your mouth ( which it should), but every single bite was tough and was chewing for forever. So I could not say it was overcooked, it was just a tough piece of meat as was my boyfriends. Really, really wanted to like this place, enough to go back because its a beautiful, romantic restaurant and the service was outstanding, but will not go back.

    The Happy Hour was very good with half price drinks and specials on the appetizers...we really enjoyed the bar. However...the restaurant decor is out-dated and all of the meals were over priced by at least $10.00 per plate. The salmon was $32.00 and the pike was $29.00...you can get both of these meals at the Great Northern and pay $10.00 less per meal and it is every bit as good if not better.

    We really enjoyed celebrating our 49th wedding aniversary at the Aurora Summit. Our waiter was very good and made use fell pampered. He introduced us to both the manager and the general manager. They surprised us with a special dessert and some champagne at the end of dinner. The food was delicious and we were able to bring some home to have later in the week. The atmospher was very pleasant with white table clothes and nice dinner ware. It was quiet and their live music was piped into the dinner rooms which made for a pleasant background for our dinner. We could carry on a covversation with no problem. The evening cost us more than we usually spend, but for a special event was well worth it. We will long remember our experience. Thank you
