Equus @ Castle Hotel and Spa Ratings and Reviews
Arrived party of 4 for restaurant week
They told us restaurant week ended on Nov 10
They just offered regular menu
I spoke to manager he realized we weren’t staying and
We’re upset said he spoke to chef and although they
No longer had restaurant week menus they gave us the same deal the rest of the night the experience was excellent great food and service
But I think they tried to con us because as we were leaving they a restaurant week sign posted ending non 12
Our group loved the place
We were a group of 5. We all had a wonderful dinner. Two of us had been to Equus before and it is better now. The rest of our table truly enjoyed their first time dining here.
Our waiter was terrific. He was so informative, attentive and accurate.
It was a wonderful dining experience!
We dined at Equus during Restaurant Week to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere and setting are always the stars, and there was live jazz courtesy of Mark Morganelli & The Jazz Forum All-Stars, which added to the special ambience. I found the Restaurant Week menu to be limited (only 3 starters and entrees) and not that enticing. The shrimp appetizer was interesting, but the salmon was undercooked and unappealing. My husband enjoyed the gnocchi. I swapped out the salmon for skirt steak, which was better but not hot enough. The service was accommodating, yet not nearly as professional as you'd expect in a restaurant of this type. They did a nice job acknowledging our anniversary and bringing a special dessert. I would return for the jazz and the beautiful setting, but not seeking outstanding food.
We’ve dined there on other significant days because the staff made it special and the meals were outstanding. 11/7 was our silver anniversary and we chose Equus because of prior delights. 11/07/17 our silver anniversary dinner was miserable. Food was sub par. Restaurant week should display the best. We got the sloughing off of who knows what. In addition, there was zero recognition to our silver anniversary.
Was there with 3 friends for Restaurant Week.
Food was ok not outstanding, my steak was uncooked rare not medium rare. Rolls were put on the plate but we were not asked which roll we wanted. A tiny pat of butter was given to the entire table. We asked for more and again got 1 pat. Asked again and finally got butter for the table. Needed to ask server to change rolls that were given to us. Got dessert but waiter ran away before we were able to order coffee. We were all disappointed.
This was the worst meal I have ever had!!! Service was terrible. There were 8 of us for brunch. We ordered our 3 courses. Every - and I mean every - course was presented to the wrong person at our table. I can see one mistake but 8 errors - for every course. The main course sat on the serving trays for a good 4 minutes. Of course, by the time we were served, the food was warm to almost cold. We had to ask for water refills & bread & butter. One couple was going to purchase a gift card, but after this disastrous meal, they changed their mind. We ( all 8 of us) will never go back to Equus again. We have been going there for many years & the entire experience has become dismal- to say the least!!! Hasn't always been that way. Maybe it's time for new ownership???? It's a shame because the venue is magnificent but if the food & service is bad, why bother. So, bottom line- SAVE YOUR MONEY & GO ELSEWHERE!!!
After we were seated, no one came to greet us or take a drink order for 20 minutes. Nearly all of the food was disappointing - undercooked pasta, absurdly sweet desserts, one-note mains. When a member of our party sent back an item because it clearly did not include the primary ingredient listed on the menu, the server took it away but returned a few minutes later with the same dish and said he had confirmed with the chef that it was the correct item despite not being able to identify the key item on the dish.
We were disappointed in the quality of food and even more so in the service. Our waiter seemed to vanish after taking our prix fixe order and while our food did come nobody ever asked if we wanted another drink or even coffee at dessert. The food was nothing special and did not live up to past meals there.
We had dinner here on Halloween to celebrate our anniversary. The food was great and the service superb. I only wish I had gone when it was daylight so I could enjoy the view. Would dine here again if ever in the area. Thanks for making our evening wonderful
My two frIends and I had a very enjoyable evening recently at Equus. The restaurant is so elegant & the food & service were truly superb! The menu had a huge variety of different types of food from which to select. The shrimp appetizer was out of this world. Would highly recommend this culinary experience to all!
Ambiance outstanding. The hotel is lovely with spectacular views. General's Bar is old world and a great place for a drink. The table service for dinner was excellent. Food was average, but nothing to get excited about if you are someone who appreciates fine dining and high quality food.
I have been to this restaurant in year's past and it had been excellent. The food this trip was mediocre, as was the service and menu choices and we had come there for two birthday celebrations. There was absolutely no mention of it during our dinner, not a happy birthday candle or anything else. We were so disappointed that we didn't even have dessert - and we were celebrating two birthdays.
Brunch at the Equus is to be enjoyed slowly and with good friends. Very consistent and good value for the money. It's like stepping back in time when you dine here. Service was very courteous and friendly. Will certainly return when I'm back in the neighborhood.
We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. He's usually fussy about new places but was cleary impressed by Equus and wants us to plan his next year's birthday celebration there. Food was great, staff was attentive and the ambience was lovely.
Food was amazing but, unfortunately, the service that I would expect at this restaurant lacked. We went for brunch, and it took almost 40 mins for our apps to come out. We felt like the forgotten table. But, looking around, everyone received the same service. Seemed like they needed more servers to handle the volume.
Extremely slow and terrible quality food (example: the hollandaise sauce on my eggs Benedict was completely broken and chunky). We came for a special occasion and we're extremely disappointed, especially at their price point
The building is beautiful but such a letdown
The ambiance of the EQUUS is excellent. We have dined here several times. The food and service is although good, it clearly does not have the refinement and server training expected in a fine dining restaurant. Communications between the servers and food runners needs to be improved. At one point one of our dinner, a server began picking up the appetizer without asking if we were done.
