    They are closed and we weren't able to go there. Good thing we figured this out in advance since we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary that night and figured on going somewhere else.

    The atmosphere was nice, a throwback. Service was excellent and quick. Lobster Bisque very good, my steak was ok. I prefer Flemings steak and sides.

    We've been here several times and the food is always good. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, the salads were delicious and the sides were very good as well. This is a consistent performer and a great alternative to the crowded often mediocre steak houses that have bigger names. Overall this was a very good meal.

    The adventure begins when you first enter the restaurant. The smiling hostess, the ambience,the decor---- in a word "class!" Great service, great wine and great food served exactly as ordered. All the employees are highly trained and very good at providing the dining experience reserved for only the very best restaurants, and the chefs are artists in epicurean creations. I would highly recommend William Douglas Steakhouse to those searching for the finest food and service in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area.

    Ambience is nice in a steakhouse way. My steak was very good (NY) but 2 of the 4 steaks were not cooked as requested. The server did not show up when we sat down for about 15 minutes. No managers visible anywhere. Rest of service was very poor. Here's the gist. We discovered that the William Douglas steakhouse and its owner, McCormick & Schimdt's share a kitchen and managers. This ultimately leads to poor service and very very slow service. The value that you pay (NY prices) for the value you get is way out of synch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 5/9/2014
    The restaurant is too expensive for the quality of the food. The drinks were so watered down that I double there was any alcohol in them at all. The creamed spinach was so overly creamy that it was pure soup - all white with bits of green - inedible. The lobster tail was rubbery and tough and $40. The scallop dish contained four very small sea scallops - a too small portion for any adult. Drive the mile down the road and go to Capital Grille - same cost much better value. The restaurant was empty - no wonder - want a full house? - serve food that is well prepared and drinks that are not watered down!

    The steak I ordered was disappointing. The texture of the meat was soft and it lacked flavor. The seafood entrees ordered by the other two in our party were very good. Service was annoyingly slow in a room that was not half occupied.

    The restaurant environment and facilities were all very nice. We enjoyed the service and the live music. The food left something to be desired. We picked this location to have steak. Calamari appetizer was tasty however it was served cool. The 12 oz filet was gritty and overcooked. NY strip was nice -- cooked just right and very flavorful. We ordered asparagus and baked potato. Fresh vegetables were delicious, baked potato was plain and served cool. Overall the experience was nice --not worth the $400+ bill for food and drinks (family of 6 / Drinks )

    What a night. my wife and I decided to go back to William Douglas and it will not happen again. To go to an empty restaurant on a Friday night at 8 pm and wait an hour for food or a drink is not right. When our food came the steak was WAY overcooked and my wifes salmon was covered in bacon. We literally waited 40 min just for our water to be filled let alone our drinks. Too pricey for a bad experience.

    We've been to William Douglas several times and have often brought friends to share the experience. We could not limit our favorite aspect of the overall dining experience to just one attribute. The food is consistently delicious. The atmosphere is always relaxing, charming and romantic. And the wait staff has always been of the highest caliber. Our friends have shared these opinions as well. However, the jewel in the crown has to be the live entertainment. Keep up the good work!

    Went on a Sunday night and only four tables were filed. In spite of that it took a half hour to get our salads, the scallop portions were small and we didn't receive our au gratin potatoes until our meal was almost over. Then the waiter offered to pack them to go! The manager then came over to ask how things were apparently completely uninformed by the waiter. She said she would make sure the potatoes were taken off the check. No kidding? That's it? No "let us by you desert" or anything? And on top of it all the cheesecake was dry.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful and the live music was a bonus, but it was downright empty during prime time on a saturday night. With it being so dead, one would assume stellar service, but this was not the case. We had to ask for bread after being seated for 30 minutes to which not enough bread was brought for our party and it was never replenished. Drinks were never replenished unless asked and then it usually took 15 minutes for something to come from the bar. The food took about two hours to come out and when it did it was obvious that it had been sitting under lamps for quite a while. We never had a visit from a manager apologizing for the delay. Overall we had a 7:30 reservation and did not complete our meal until 11:15!!

    When we walked into the restaurant the atmosphere was just what I expected, beautiful and serene. We had to change the reservation and I was able to use the online open table option on the site. This is a wonderful tool. It told me the next available times there was an open table, I clicked on the preferred time and I got a confirmation. We were seated as soon as we got to the restaurant. The service at the restaurant is outstanding, and our waiter, Cody was wonderful and very entertaining he made the birthday boys feel so special. Even at such a late hour we never felt rushed to order or finish our dinner,which was very nice. Over all we had a wonderful experience and definitely will be going back to William Douglas Steakhouse.

    Serious issues at this place. The RESTRUANT was not full yet we waited an hr and a half for our meals and that is not an exaggeration. The food overall was pretty good but it was not warm. We returned a plate for being cold. In a party of 4 -2 great meals 1 cold meal and one un edible because it had so much pepper on it . I really think the issues fall of management at this place. Someone should be watching the poor service. It's clear to me that there is little urgency and possibly an undersized kitchen. We would not go back but it is a really nice place. I think they need to focus on quality of service and delivery to the patrons.

    My husband & I decided to try this place for a nice, romantic meal (especially since we both love a good steak). The layout of the restaurant was beautiful & had nice ambiance. We couldn't understand why there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. Waiter seemed a bit clueless . There was NO ONE in the restaurant and we had to ASK for a basket of bread after he brought our soup/salad. We ordered our steaks medium well-- they were bleeding. For those prices, everything should have been perfect. Only thing that I could say that we enjoyed was dessert (bananas foster flambeed for 2). I now know why the restaurant was empty. If you have $$ to spend on a nice meal, go to Capital Grille.They have the service & the food that justify the price tag.

    I loved the feel of place. It had a warm, cozy, comfortable feeling. The food was great, and cooked just right. The live jazz made it even better! The only thing negative is, it seemed that we waited a while before our main entree was served, other then that our experience was great.

    Took my daughter for an evening out because of good grades. Many families enjoying the place. Couples too. Nice bar area if you just want to stop for a drink with a friend. Food was great except my steak was medium rare when I ordered medium well. Sent back to brown up with no issues. My daughter orded medium but hers came really rare. So if you don't like you steaks too red -be sure to order more cooked at this steak house! Waiter great . Back room had limited heat - cold .so sit in front section of restaurant . Piano bar singer sang like Tony Bennett all evening. Pricey but a Nice evening out. We enjoyed ourselves .

    The food at William Douglas is good. The service however was HORRIBLE tonight. I took my wife and two children. The appetizers came and went. Then the children's food came. 45 minutes later the kids were finished and adults still did not have food. Funny, but kids don't have the attention span to wait forever after they finish eating. I understand putting children's food orders in first as that makes sense but not 45 minutes later once they have finished. We ended up packing up adult dinners to go and leaving. When ordering a $50 steak and $10 topping for the steak one really doesn't want to take it to go. Also, charging $3.29 per soda for children when kid's menu says soft drink included? Really?

    Admittedly we were there early with a 5:15 dinner. Service was friendly and happy hour prices extend from 4 to 7pm. There were 4 people at the bar and another table if people in the restaurant the entire time we were there. Food was good and service was fine. Nothing remarkable. We checked in with host per our reservation (you don't need one) at the William Douglas entrance. However, around front is the McCormick and Schmick entrance. It appears these places join and share. I know the same company owns both. Our receipt said McCormick and Schmick. Very odd.

    After reading the reviews for WD I admit I was hesitant. I was going on a first date and really wanted to impress and not choose a place that would be an epic fail. Upon entering the host (yes, the bald guy) pleasantly greeted us and had us seated in a private booth (which was not reserved, but much appreciated). The waiter promptly came by and poured water and asked for our drink orders and made the recommendations for the evening. As far as the waiter was concerned there was only one mishap where he forgot my date's requested lemon for her water, but when reminded promptly returned with them. Overall the food was excellent, though for a steak restaurant the meat tended to be a bit over cooked.
