  • "We come here with friends when we want something different and out of the ordinary to eat! The food is just to die for! And the martinis are so unique & delicious!"

  • "Really loved the beef carpaccio! Meatloaf flight was good! Great environment. Disappointed the Happy Hour was only in the bar area!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "My wife an I arrived during happy hour, the happy hour wine was different but good. We decided to try a couple appetizers, they just didn't cut it. The margarita flatebread was burned and very oily, the parma ham had more than enough proscutto but only 3 tiny figs the size of peanuts and a very small scoop of goat cheese not a good balance of product. We thought before dinner we should try something else thinking if it turns out to be a 3rd strike we are out of here. Unfortunately it was we ordered the Ahi Tuna Tacos, 3 very tiny little shells apeared with a few shavings of ahi in each, bearly a bite size each. We left at that...I will note our server, Kristie or kristal in the bar was very attentive, fun saved the experiance."

  • "Can't say enough good things about our meal here on Friday night. Service was outstanding. They go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied. I had the Hawaiian walu fish. Excellent---just like our server said!!!! Try this place. You will be glad you did!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The friend of us has recommended this pace. We choose it primarily because of location - ~5mins from our house. The service was very fast and just in the right time, no annoyance. The food was very good and the portion size was just right. It would be good to have noise level somewhat lower, but, oh well, the place was crowded... We like this western style, definitely will come again."

  • "The Turf room is always a hit for our group. For any occasion. Delicious food, taste, quality, choices and presentation have kept us coming back for more. Outstanding food. The knowledgeable waitstaff seem to go above and beyond for their patrons. Which makes the dinning experience even more pleasurable. Kudos to the management. One of the Best places around for delectable eats every time!! The appetizers and desserts shouldn't be overlooked here either. Absolutely Amazing. There is an Extensive drink menu, wine, beer, Best martinis around. One of the Best places around for delectable eats. The Turf Room is a definite winner every time."

  • "I was at the Turf Room on Saturday 6/21 with my family to celebrate a very special birthday. It was the first visit for all of us. 1) Front desk - We were met by an extremely rude hostess who barely greeted the dining party. 2) Seating - Our reservation clearly stated a party of 5 and we were taken to a 4 top while the waitress figured out how to seat us at the four top. While we waited for 10 minutes, another gentleman came along and seated us at a table for six. 3) Food and dessert - Short ribs came with a potato side that tasted like grease at best, mashed potatoes tasted like glued powder, and meat loaf consisted of 3 bite sized slider portions of meat loaf. The best part of the entire experience was the waiter who was quite nice."

  • "I was not overall impressed. Tried the apple cheese appetizer, the vegetarian lasagna, the walu and the glazed strawberries."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Turf Room never disappoints with their creative menu and drink selections. My wife enjoyed a Peach Sangria, while had a Sauvignon Blanc that went great with our meals. We'll be back again!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Our dining experience was so great that we asked to speak to a manager and let him know. (We never do this!) The server did an excellent job explaining the menu and since it was our first time there, he gave some excellent recommendations! The food was great as well, I had the flat iron steak and it was cooked perfectly. I usually have the filet mignon, but thought I would save the $10 and I'm glad I did!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "A great restaurant that has fallen far & quickly. The prime flat iron was neither prime or a flat iron cut. The garlic mashed potatoes were bland. The lemon on the asparagus just wasn't there. The worst was the chicken filo. The chicken tasted old and institutionalized. It's sad to see such a great place go this way."

  • "The restuarant is a treasure with great service, fantastic food and lots of fun throughout."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We've been dining at Turf Room for years. We love both the patio and the fireplace. We enjoy the food and would eat there more often but the non-meat choices are very limited. (My daughter is vegetarian, no fish and limited cheese and I don't only eat red meat). However, what is offered is very good (just wish there was more of the good stuff!) Thank you for another lovely experience :)"

  • "This is not a place to go if your favorite meal is chicken nuggets; the menu is full interesting amd delicious things to try. It's a fantastic place to go with a group who is willing to share so you can sample lots of the dishes."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This place was recommended by a friend...and we were not disappointed. Both occasions have been a wonderful experience, from the drinks, to the desserts everything was OUTSTANDING."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Didn't even know this place was there but heard about it from friends. The food was very good. My husband ordered the filet and it was cooked perfectly. I ordered the duck and my only negative comment is that they didn't get the fat rendered on the duck so it was a bit chewy and had to cut if away before eating. Huge wine list, lots of options especially if you eat in the Wine Room. The blue cheese stuffed tempura mushrooms are ridiculously good. We really enjoyed our meal and loved the ambience."

  • "Made it a good time, hated the table could not see the TV that I asked to be seated by to watch the Belmont Stakes. When asked if there was something they could do for us, the Hostess was very rude and did not want to even try to accommodate us "said you can try to move if you want" unacceptable in the service industry, people like that should not be in that job. If you are this type of personality DO NOT be in the service. I too worked in service for 15 yrs. and no matter how busy or the stress your under, always be friendly and accommodate your customers. If not for customers you would not be in business and you would not have a job. "

  • "describes the beef filet. I gasped when I saw my partner cut into his filet with the butter knife! THAT is tender, and perfectly medium rare- no charred outside/raw within! Flatbread was exquisite! Scallop app was interesting but not notable. Lobster bisque flavorful but too tangy for my taste. I prefer the "sweet meat" flavor of the shellfish.Shortrib was tender and I could sub asparagus for carrots but the potato "thing" was charred beyond edibility.Stick with garlic mash. Terrific poached pear salad,enough for 2..Sorry, NO room for dessert!! any wonder?"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The turf room changed many menu items and took several off. Destroyed salmon and sea bass - where are the lobster corn dogs , rice or baked potatoes? and really upping your martini prices to the cost of a six pack? We've been long time a Turf surfers but with not happy with all changes. Fox fire in Geneva becoming our top pic. "

  • "never disappoints...great food, service, etc. I come here at least once a month....always great. Never visited the OTB...but always surprised on the quality of the food given the OTB venue."

  • "As always! Excellent service and great food! Sat in the wine room and it was very nice and quiet! "

  • "The Turf Room has been one of our favorites-for several years yet we ate there in April and were disappointed. We decided to try again and the experience was better, but still not as good as when the previous chef was there. Not sure where he went, but some of those dishes are missing from the menu and we miss them. Again, as in April, our server neglected us, but the restaurant was very busy. It appears there are plenty of support staff, yet we still had long waits and no refills for our beverages. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food, wine, and service were excellent. We were especially impressed by our server, Amy, who was very knowledgeable about the food and wine and made great recommendations. Unfortunately, there was cold air blowing on us throughout the meal, and even though the staff checked with us several times to see if we were more comfortable, the temp did not change. We will go back but take something warm to put around us next time!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "My husband and I went out for a date night and really loved The Turf Room. A friend had recommended it awhile ago and I wish we'd tried it sooner. Salmon pasta was delicious. Great waitress and service. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The food was great, the wine was great and dessert was great. Our server Mike was top notch!!! The music was a touch to loud, which made it hard to have a conversation without having to repeat yourself. The Turf Room is one of my top favorites and will be going back."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We can always rely on the Turf Room to give us great food, great service an overall a fabulous experience. We are NEVER disappointed!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Great food, excellent appetizers, and great service. The only thing we would have improved was to turn the lights up a bit. The lights were dimmed to help create ambience and make things perhaps more romantic, but it was so dark my wife and I could barely see the menu. We ended up using the light on her cell phone."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The appetizers and entree's we ordered were excellent. Some dared to try dishes they never had before, i.e. ahi tuna and kobe beef. The dishes were prepared extremely well and were really tasty."

  • "This was our first time at the Turf Room (sister to the Saddle Room) and it was excellent! Theron took care of us and was very well versed in all aspects of our dining experience, especially the wine list. If you're looking for a quieter experience, get a table in one of the 2 rear dining rooms. Food was excellent and the menu had its classic and eclectic items. My only suggestion would be to turn down the "background music" that was too loud for the back dining rooms."

  • "After a first wonderful dining experience months ago, I returned. What a shame. I ordered a ribeye and after cutting into it and having one bite, I realized something was wrong. It wasn't a ribeye. The waiter did not return until the 3 others in my party had finished their meals to clear our plates. He actually asked if I wanted the steak boxed up! I informed it wasn't good and to please remove it from the bill. I was told that indeed I had been served the wrong cut of meat and was offered another meal. That would have been nice before everyone was done with their meal. I politely declined and the meal was taken off our bill. "

  • "We like the Turf Room and returned with our family for mother's day this year. As always, we had wonderful meals. My daughter thought the Chilean Sea Bass was fantastic, my son loved the lamb chops, my wife had one of her favorites (the meatloaf) and our son-in-law loved his steak. I had the gnocchi and it was unbelievably good. All in all it was another wonderful experience at the The Turf Room. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Over 10 minutes for waiter to check in with us. 10 additional minutes for bread and water to arrive and had to remind waiter. Steak...I appreciate a little marbling but both steaks, Ribeye and New York Strip, were fatty and tough. Appetizer waiter recommended was atrocious. We've been advised to try the bar and bar menu as the burgers are good...not what I want to hear about an upscale restaurant. "
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Anytime we have a special occasion or family from out of town this is where we go! The new chef has added some delicious new items while keeping some of our favorites from the old menu. Goat cheese cheesecake is AMAZING!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We are big fans of the Turf Room...so we took a group there for my birthday and the service was poor-really poor. The menu has changed, not for the better. The salmon was warm and mushy, although the mustard sauce had a great flavor. My husband called ahead to have a dessert brought with a candle. The waiter brought the check instead and in fact did not ask if ANYONE wanted dessert. He gave the check to the wrong person, who ended up paying since the whole situation was awkward. Not a good evening. "

  • "A group of us went for brunch this past Sunday and when we went the last time, the salads were much better. They just weren't up to par this time. They always have 4 salads and none of them were that great. My one girlfriend prefers not much meat or only chicken and there wasn't much she could choose from. They even had a meatball salad, really? We were in the back part of the restaurant behind the curtain and that was nice and quiet. It is quite dark in there but that didn't bother us. Service was good and he even did separate checks for us, which was helpful."
