    Had 7:00 tickets for a show, got there at 4:30. Took about 15 minutes to get seated, took 15 minutes to get wine list, took another 15 minutes to get menu, another 15 minutes to order. 6:40 still no food. Told waiter we were running out of time, one of our checks was wrong. My food was not good, other guests said theirs was good. Bread was really good. Waiter brought wrong wine, didn't mention that they were out of the one they wanted until they had already had some.

    First of all, let me say that the food is always very good. We had the marinated crab claws, followed by fillet mignon with a baked potato and the snapper Shreve. Very, very good. However, with dinner also came a show. Our server was clearly intoxicated. Somehow, he kept it together enough to do a good enough job and paid enough attention to us that it really wasn’t a detriment. Apparently, the substance abuse didn’t stop there. Another employee ended up being escorted out by police after doing cocaine off the floor of the bathroom and defecating herself (no, I am not joking). I only knew this happened because my fiancé was in the restroom when the police were coming in to get her. Finally, the restaurant apparently has a policy that all allows for small toy dogs to sit in dining chairs as long as they have an “emotional support” vest on. I’m a dog person, so this didn’t really bother me, but it was strange to be in a place with $50 entrées and have a small toy dog staring at you. All in all, the night was very entertaining to say the least. The food was great. I’ll be back. But be aware you might see some shenanigans!

    Always excellent food and top notch service . I go about once or twice a year for about 10 years. The place is heavily outdated but with the excellent food and service you forget about it, at least I do.

    It’s unfortunate all the bad reviews! This place is iconic and the food is out of this world. We had a fantastic waiter Ronald or Donald. Mr. Ernest was seen here and there greeting guests between cooking his delicious food including us. He said I had a great Son. That’s a mom’s greatest compliment! If you don’t want to wait visit on Thursday. I sure hope more people will review better. Seems the only people piping up these days are the ones with a bad experience. Given how much business this place does it doesn’t come close!!

    I wasn’t able to try the food since they never seated us so it should receive an N/A but everything else deserves a zero. Our reservation was for 730. We arrived at 720, stood in line to check in (at 730) and then waited till 810, at which time I asked how much longer and was told 45 minutes longer and we left. People were packed in the waiting area like sardines, all with 730 reservations. To say they overbooked would be an understatement. Terrible management. Won’t be back.
