Our server Jimmy was exceptional. He’s a true asset to the restaurant. The lobster bisque and escargot were terrific, as was the lobster tail. Wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Everything was great! within our group had the belvie bread, scallops, strip steak, and crab cake. Everything was brought in a timely manner and hot! The only thing is i was told by other fellow eaters that they received rolls with their meals and we did not. Not sure if that was because we got the belvie bread or not. Other wise great dining experience!

The Belvedere is a great restaurant. But it is not cheap. You’ll get a great meal but it is expensive.

Ordered a handful of appetizers. Lobster bisque is very good, baked Brie and mussels are outstanding. We didn’t care for one of the other items and our server was very attentive. He notified the manager who very graciously discussed our concern and removed the item from our bill.
We sat in the second floor lounge and ate while a group played piano and bass. Great ambiance!
Always have a very good experience here!

We were a group of friends that were dining to celebrate the Holiday Season. Great food, Great Time. Our waiter, Raymond was/is the "Best." The Christmas decorations on the 2nd floor added an ambience, along with the Christmas music playing in the background. Thank you Belvedere for a wonderful experience. We will be back. Pete Bush

Our server was top-notch, providing immediate responses to our questions and making every effort to ensure we were taken care of. Other than that, the food was not up to the standard we had become accustomed to. My wife's side dish had no flavor and our dessert, the chocolate lava cake was terrible. Management should consider removing this dessert from the menu. Hopefully this was just a bad night for the chef and cooking staff.

Excellent visit. Great service and experience. Upstairs and downstairs decorated beautifully for the holidays. Wine and dessert we wanted were not available despite a 5:30 reservation time.

Our server was exceptional and the atmosphere was charming. The only negative thing I can say is that my sea scallops were not hot inside. I also had ordered them well done and the insides were cold. Our waiter took it off our bill and gave us free deserts. We would definitely go back.

The experience was phenomenal and our waiter was absolutely the best! I believe his name was Jimmy and he made comical jokes and was phenomenal!!!

Maybe I will have to ask to be in his section again next time I come in, as he truly made the night enjoyable.

There is a new chef on the lunch menu. I actually met him. He has been refining it. My friend and I often lunch there and love the lobster bisque, THis time there where large chunks of lobster. I could tell the quicke was made by annother cook just looking at schedule crust of my friends entree. She loved the l=crab quick and I got some lobster bisque to take home for dinner
Because I rarely eat beef unless I-am out I ordered the burger-it was available with two excellent types of beef. I ordered it Med-rare and it came well done but our server took it back and had a new burger. I don’t eat the bun just the beefsteak and it was excellent,
We both commented on how the salads were delicious and not overdressed. I didn’t try the macaroni salad as I try to avoid carbs.
We didn’t have our usual flan for dessert but I highly recommend it.
We didn’t expect to see Carole’s enter in costume or to see he wonderful tree and decor for CHristmas. As we both hav December birthdays we were treating ourselves and were glad we did.
Only little glitches, thought we would get a lit cupcake or something but they did have a card on the table wishing us Happy BIrthday

We had a wonderful lunch! The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays! Our waiter was superb on all accounts! The food was excellent as always. I enjoyed the vegetarian risotto recommended by our waiter. We enjoyed our table for a considerable time and were never hurried! All very satisfying!
