Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "It was hard to concentrate on the food and service, both good, when the waitstaff not waiting on tables needed to sit at the bar with the combo and laugh and scream at whatever they thought was funny. Will not be coming back to this restaurant."

  • "$150 for dinner for two? No apps. No dessert. One draft beer. Awful. Go elsewhere to spend your hard-earned money. This place was almost empty on a Saturday evening. No surprise."

  • "since Landry's acquired this place, it is improving but still needs work. Sides were small, dessert menu not to our liking, but steaks were very good and our server was excellent."

  • "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."

  • "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 ."

  • "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."

  • "The restaurant was very nice, I wasn't impressed with the wine by the glass list, I would have liked a bigger selection. But overall very nice experience."

  • "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."

  • "Sadly we have given this place a last try.we loved this place from the day it opened.this time will be our last.The steak is the best quality you will find in the area, so we are sad to give such a poor review. the past few times we have had different servers, all very nice, all very SLOW. we understand the meal is supposed to be leisurely, but waiting 20 min for a cocktail?we had to flag our server down & the place was NOT busy.ALOOF. this seems to be the norm here now &we have given up! by the time our appetizers came we had indigestion from waiting. asked the server TWICE to please go get some salad dressing. you end up feeling sorry for everyone in this place because you can tell that it is not busy and possibly going to just fold up."

  • "We arrived a little early and was asked if we would like to sit at the bar until our table was ready. I had asked for a private booth, which is really nice, sits up to four. The bartender was new and it was her first night. She didn't know anything about wines. We only asked for the house merlot and chardonay. She had to ask the other bartender twice. We only sat about 10 minutes listening to the great piano music and singer. We were escorted to our private booth, we already had our wine in hand, so the waiter introduced himself, dropped off the menus and left. After about 10 minutes he came back and took our orders. We both ordered the soup and I also ordered oysters rockafeller. Disappointed with the service"

  • "Service was outstanding. Server was ver attentive. Way overpriced for a chain restaurant. About a 150% mark up on wine bottles. Food was fair. Ordered steak rare and came out medium."

  • "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."

  • "The ambience alone will make you melt for this lovely piano bar themed restaurant. From the softly dimmed lighting, gorgeous paintings of the old horse track, intimate seating, & the live piano playing/ paired with a lounge singer, this place will win you ovenr. The food is nothing short of spectacular, from something as simple as their cocktail shrimp and/or asparagus spears to their luscious, melt in your mouth, filet mignon! This place is perfect for a romantic evening with the love of your life. Don't forget to order dessert! I recommend the carrot cake, twice baked apple turnover, & bananas foster. The only down side if any...is that you are sure to spend a small fortune, but trust me, it is well worth every penny with every bite."

  • "Bartender looked like 1st day behind a bar.. Didn't know how to open a bottle. Didn't know Merlot was red wine. Really? Staff was amateur at best... Was very disappointing, won't be back anytime soon"

  • "Over the food was very good, a little over priced. I mean $2.39 for a cup of coffee. From where we sat the resturant didn't look overly busy, but the waiter kept apologizing that the kitchen was backed up not the we were in a hurry. But I have been at resturants that when your our of bread they will ask if you would like more."

  • "Our server, Nick, was excellent. Very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We had 6 people in our party and everything we ordered was delicious. The steaks were cooked to everyone's preference. Don't listen to the negative reviews on other websites. This was a great experience and we will be back!! Ask for Nick!! My only negative comment is that I think the wine prices are high compared to similar restaurants in the area."

  • "Great live music. Great service. Great ambience. Great mixed drinks. But the food was poor in taste and character. Had my strip - and quality of meat and prep was in impressive. Mac and cheese lacked flavor. And roasted Brussels sprouts were charred and too coated with balsamic. Potential to be a mini Morton's if it improves kitchen. Until then, for the money I would go to Morton's or Fleming's."
