Excellent all around, but I’ve been going there for 14 years—PLEASE PLEASE CHANGE THE MENU. Same old same old....??
Will never go back. Steak looked like charcoal, Waiter
apologized and I felt badly for him but overall myself and friends agreed it was overall a huge disappointment
Arcadia is a high end restaurant with a limited menu. We have eaten there numerous times, the food has varied from very good to excellent. This time the food was disappointing, especially given the cost. My wife had the scallops (4 reasonably sized pieces) which were distinctly not remarkable. I had the short ribs, which was good. For both dishes, the accompanying vegetables were quite unremarkable.
The service was quite good.
Hadn't been to Arcadia in a couple of years, so had a pre-opera meal on a Saturday night. Missed the tablecloths greatly. This is a steakhouse Michael Mina style set in the downtown Marriott Hotel. We skipped the steaks but enjoyed our salads (caesar and iceberg blt), chicken with truffle mac and cheese and the fish special (sea bass). Duck fat fries with three dipping sauces are served instead of bread. Portions are enormous. Somehow, we had a bit of room for some of the ice creams. The wine list is heavy on reds; we chose an Alsatian riesling which turned out not be in stock and was replaced with a comparable wine. A little expensive but worth the splurge if you don't dine there every day.
I think I ordered the wrong thing. I didn't like my entree and I don't like having my soup poured into a dry bowl. Salad was just.......
Amazing food. Best steak ever. All was 5 star.
Definitely a disappointment..The service was slow and when I asked about the possibility of bread or crackers to go with my salad I was told we don't have/serve bread. Hmmmm
Went for brunch before a Sunday matinee. They quit serving breakfast foods at 11:00 so our only choices were from the lunch menu which was pretty limited. We started with "Lobster Corn Dogs" which were very mushy and resembled baby food in a corn meal wrapper and tasted just as bland. My guest had the crab cake sandwich; also very mushy and unremarkable. I had the chicken clubhouse; chicken seemed microwaved, avocado spread was extremely sparse and the overall sandwich was dry and underwhelming. Neither of us finished even half of our sandwiches. Even though the restaurant was almost empty, drinks took more time than they should have and service was spotty. It was a basic hotel diner, nothing special.
Excellent food and service everytime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We used to love this restaurant. We even had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding here almost a decade ago. We came after a SJ Sharks game this weekend and had really terrible service - water not refilled, no check ins to see if we wanted to order another drink, slow, inattentive service. Apps and entrees came out at the same time.
The food was delicious, but we did have upset stomachs after...
We probably won't return. It's too bad, because this restaurant held a special place in our hearts!!
Hotel web site says dress code is jacket. Not true.
Filet mignon was the best steak that I have had anywhere. Complimentary fries are great as well.
bar service was very slow. waiter was good, but had to wait for the bar.
First time here, wish the hostess would have explained the options for seating a little better. Had a table/booth but a booth would have been preferred if we had known where they were. There was one available. Our salad was very late in being served so the server didn't charge us. A nice touch is the complimentary french fry tasting appetizer. The food was wonderful. Will try this restaurant again. My husband said his filet mignon was like "butter".
Nice atmosphere and quiet on a Friday night.
Mushroom Bisque and bone-in Ribeye Steak are highly recommended . Aged steak was ok but not reconnended
The lobster pot pie was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!! The service was great, as always.
We had visited Arcadia when it first opened and were unimpressed for a Michael Mina restaurant. We decided to give it another try and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was this time around. The strip steak in particular was better than most high end steak places we have visited lately - tender and cooked perfectly. Ruben also gave us excellent and professional service. Need to keep this place in mind from now on.
Excellent food, BUT PLEASE CHANGE UR MENU!
Dining there for many treats & the same menu.
