    Food was good. Service was just ok. We didn’t receive two items ordered and had to have them removed from bill. At this price, I expect excellent service. Wouldn’t go back.

    Have the passage ways been narrowed? My chair was bumped numerous times as people and servers passed behind. Food was very good as usual, we love this place, please don’t add any more salt to the dishes. We had a terrible time finding parking with the construction going on. Since the owners of the restaurant own a parking lot and several other properties, they should consider offering some parking or we will think of going to places that offer parking.

    My husband and I went to Frankie Rowland’s for our anniversary and it ruined us. Everyone else in the restaurant seemed so relaxed about their food that I cut off my first bite of perfectly cooked and seared filet mignon and popped in my mouth with the smoothest mashed potatoes to accompany it, all casual like I was at a random steakhouse for a mundane Tuesday, and it stopped me in my tracks. I thought I would cry. My filet was too big for me, but I didn’t let that stop me. I savored every single bite beyond what I could comfortably consume. I had the creme brûlée after, which I also had no room for, but trust and believe we made some space. I also topped my dinner off with a pineapple martini-light and refreshing! I left so sad. Sad that it was over, sad that I was so stuffed, and sad that I can never look at steaks the same again in my life. They forgot to wish us a happy anniversary, but I also forgot it was my anniversary for a good portion of dinner so I can’t blame them.

    This was our first visit here. Definitely will not be our last. Had the lamb chops they were amazing. Got? The mix screen salad,with the house dressing. It was more than enough for 2 to share and the dressing was really really good. Mac and cheese perfectly baked with loads of gooey cheeses, and bread pudding topped it off!! Definitely going back! Service was great and everyone very Friendly!!

    Positives: seated promptly at reservation time; servers were appropriately attentive and cordial; martini took awhile to arrive, but was good; by-the-glass wine selections were very good and reasonably-priced; salad was fresh, crispy, and house green goddess dressing was excellent. Negatives: lobster bisque was watery (not properly thick with a good roux base), tasted unpleasantly fishy, and contained no lobster; filet seemed to be of good quality, but instead of medium-rare-plus (split the difference between medium-rare and medium) as ordered, was severely charred on the outside and raw inside; Bernaise sauce was incredibly salty and super-thick, more like a paste than a sauce; cheese course was just weird — Gouda was fine, but of the other two cheeses, one was tasteless and the other was dry+crumbly+tasteless — the fruit chutney was good, but the spicy-hot pickled carrots were jarringly disgusting and should all go into the disposal.

    Colossal shrimp were only jumbo at best, and you only got 3. Duck leg appetizer was tough. Tons of meat couldn’t even be cut off of the bone, plus the meat barely had any seasoning and they threw a blueberry sauce on it, which was subpar. Steaks and cocktails were best part. Crème brûlée sugar was legit burnt and black so tasted like charcoal. Custard of the crème brûlée didn’t have much flavor. They were out of potatoes gratin so got mashed potatoes that were basically cold when they came. Lava cake dessert was dry and definitely didn’t seem like it was made in-house. There was no fudge inside,either, plus they charge u $4 for a tiny scoop of icecream to go with it.

    My steak was almost raw-definitely not medium rare plus so they took it back and 23 minutes later, I was served a piece of well done beef-no pink at all and dry. I declined to eat it. They did realize the issue and comped my meal which I appreciated but nevertheless, not the fine dining night I was hoping for.

    Very slow service. Went for restaurant week. After asking for the restaurant week menu- we were basically ignored. Since it was a limited menu- I guess that meant we got limited service. Ordered an appetizer and drinks. Never got the drink. It was an hour before we got our salads. Ordered the filet medium well- it came rare. It had good flavor but I ate around the edge. My husband finished the bloody middle. Could we have asked for it to be cooked more? Nope- waitress never came back- and another Waitress was serving the table beside us - her back was to us every time she came over - so we couldn’t flag her down. Very very disappointed. They announced that any of the servers would be willing to help - but couldn’t get anyone’s attention. Asked for ice water with my meal- did I get it- nope! But I was certainly charged 6.00 for “still” water when we sat down. I was asked if I wanted sparkling or still water. I said still- but I guess I should have been more direct with saying tap- I’m not sure-

    We had to wait 15 min after our reservation time for seating. This food is good but VERY expensive for what you get. Sides are average, but no better restaurant steak in town. Service is excellent which is why I am willing to pay for this food occasionally. The space is looking outdated and pretty dark for my preference.
