    The presidential pork chop changed, no longer the same. Now you get two dry chops. Only one dinner gf choice, no starters or appetizers are gf. Not the same place we loved at all, extremely disappointed. Won’t be back!

    Visited on a quiet night. Slow service. Appetizers came out at the same time as entrees. Entrees were cold. Glass was sitting empty for at least 15 minutes. Mojito had a single mint leaf, used as garnish.

    Pricing is pretty comparative to other upscale sit down restaurant. My brunch with bottomless drinks was under $50 which included a 20% tip. They do have live music with Sunday brunch so it was a little on the louder side but you could still have a conversation. The food was pretty good, some dishes lacked seasoning but for the most part it was an enjoyable experience!

    Food was good. Service was only okay, she was not polished at all! Given the prices, we expected a higher level of food quality, better service and better atmosphere. The setting was nice, but could have been more intimate if the lights had been turned down and jazz music was playing in the background. Friends who were with us had never been there before and they came away feeling it was just okay!

    The setting is lovely at the historic Blackhawk Hotel. The food was fine, not great. I had higher expectations given the price and reputation. The electronic menus leave a lot to be desired. They aren’t clearly marked lunch, dinner, etc as you flip pages. My son wanted a burger but was not an option due to being the lunch menu. No problem except the whole menu is simply a bad user experience. The wrong pictures showed for some of the “V” icons, or they were just wrapped to look associated with the wrong item. I get fine dining places like to have a more limited menu - just dont hand me all your menus and expect me to sort through it. Service was okay, but a bit slow. They were NOT at all busy. We waited a bit to be greeted. Another couple arrived while we dined, waited for quite a while and then seated themselves. Again, not busy at all. The waitstaff seemed to be at the bar area most of the time. Perhaps they have a lot of take out or room service orders they manage. Not on my list to return any time soon.

    I was there for my anniversary, we were set in a corner away from everybody next to a loud wedding party. The menu was limited, and the food that I was able to order was not worth the price tag. The service wasn't great but not horrible. If you are looking for top notch go elsewhere this is not the place

    Such a great date night experience for my wife and me. The food was absolutely amazing. I loved the Forrest mushroom fillet. It was so delicious and the meat practically melted in my mouth. The potatoes and asparagus sides were prepared equally with as much attention to detail as the steak. The wait staff was quick and attentive. I will 100% be dining there again.

    We were disappointed with the lack of menu options. The taste of the food was just so so. The worst part of the meal was the incredibly loud wedding party. We couldn’t even hear to talk to each other. Definitely will not return.

    This restaurant in a vintage hotel is a favorite because of the atmosphere in a beautifully-decorated space, and wonderful food cooked to perfection. The drinks were great, as the bar is right in the restaurant, and we did not have a long wait for drinks or food on a Thursday night at 6:15.

    This is a sad hotel restaurant with bad service. There were only 2 servers who were either overworked or undertrained. We never got our drinks until after our food came. I received the wrong size salad and was told I wouldn’t be charged for the larger salad. I was. We were told after such slow service and not getting our drinks, they would comp us dessert. They did not. The decor is nice but there are random parts of the restaurant that are not finished or not used, like a stage area with seat cushions stacked up. The scallop appetizer was ok but the risotto was very mushy and lacked flavor. The caesar salad was covered in cheap store bought croutons. I will not be returning.

    We came to eat before a Broadway at The Adler show. We were seating timely, received a token for complimentary parking, and was greeted with a smile. The drinks and food were both delicious. The menu was not updated online so I was not able to order what I was wanting, but the item I decided to order was worth it. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
