 (Los Angeles)·Dined 2 days ago

Service was very good with the exception of food delivery timing. Entrees arrived halfway thru salad course, leaving a lot of excess dishes on table and a sense of rushing thru the meal. Steak was cooked properly but not as tender as it should have been. Salad served on cold plates as appropriate, Wine selection adequate

It has been many years since I’ve been to Hunter Steakhouse. We went for our Mom’s 85th Birthday. We had a delicious dinner. Old school dining. Bread, soup or salads and sides with your entree. I order the whiskey Peppercorn steak. My steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. We will return

We went for Restaurant Week and I must say that it was definitely one of the best values. We got so much food and I definitely couldn't finish it all. The beef bones were great, I loved the tableside salad, and the bread...mmmm. My only complaint was that I asked for medium steak and it was more like medium well and my husband wanted medium well and it was more like well done. Oh and the carrot cake was really good too. I would definitely go back.

We visited for the restaurant week menu and it was quite good for $20 a person. You had a choice of 2 appetizers ( we had the beef bones and they were meaty and you got 2) we had Caesar salad, bread, steak with potatoes, and chocolate cake for dessert. The waitress was very friendly and fast. The steak was ok and overcooked, but the made me a new one. It was decent for the price we paid. Overall good meal

The salad was fresh but the blue cheese dressing was not good. It was a watered down ranch dressing with clumps of cottage cheese in it! Not right to pass this off as blue cheese. The salmon was okay but the prime rib was not tasting very good at all. Have had much better at Bully's. The agraratin potatoes were horrible. It was a half of a baked potato hacked up in large pieces with a little sauce and even less cheese and it was tasteless. We were very disappointed in our dinner and would not return or recommend this place.

Hostess were to busy talking to each other to greet not only us, but other guest as well. Try to let the hostess know that it was my daughter birthday so I could arrange a dessert for her, but she was not interested in what I had to say.
Section we were seated in waitress had a big party, which is fine except she did not even greet us for 15 minutes, we had to find someone to at least get us water. When she finally came we ordered our drinks, and dinner. It took 20 minutes to get our salads, and we believe the only reason we did is because another table she like got a salad as well.
She spent more time concerned with what her tips were from the large party.
When our dinner came she was not the one who served us, but the person a (man) through the plates on the table. My daughter try to find out why her plate had so much juice on it due to she ordered her steak well done. He told her it was scampi sauce. It was the juices from her steak, and left. No one offer her steak sauce, and anything else.
Our waitress was much nicer to the table that was sat after us.
This was my daughters and son-in laws first time at your restaurant I do not believe they will ever return. We were not happy with service, or the meal.
I have eaten at your restaurant before, and if this had been my first I would not return either. At this point I do not no if I will. I will never bring people to celebrate anything again.

My husband and I have been coming to Hunter Steakhouse for probably 35+ years...from the original Hungry Hunter (with bear in cage) through numerous re-decorating attempts. The food is always good. The parking lot needs a lot of work--especially in the handicap area (uneven cement cracked and broken up). We thoroughly enjoyed our 49th wedding anniversary, and took good care of our waiter--who took good care of us! We were pleasantly surprised at the delicious complementary slice of chocolate cake with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. Made for a special, fun occasion.

We were on business from out of town and enjoyed our meal. However, after leaving this restaurant a member of our party had their credit card compromised. Unauthorized charges totaling close to $1,000 were made after using their credit card at this business. This was the only place the credit card was used and left this person in an unfortunate position during their business travel.

Definitely will not be returning or recommending this establishment.

Been here 3 times. Steaks are great, prices are reasonable. Service is good. Salads at your table are a real treat. Clean plates for all of us. Limited desert menus, but that’s ok. Parking is difficult. The only downside is the music coming out of tinny speakers in the dining room. Bad sound and bad choice of tunes.

I always enjoy Hunter Steakhouse. The food is great and a good value, especially if you go on Monday or Tuesday when they offer the Restaurant Week special. Our only complaint was that the restaurant was uncomfortably cold even though we were only about 15 feet from the fireplace. We asked if there was a warmer table but were told they were all cold because of the air flow from the fireplace. We wound up eating our meal with jackets on to keep from freezing. Our server was very attentive but I only gave her 3 stars because we had only started our salad when the steaks were delivered to the table. We sent them back to be kept warm while we finished the salads. I can only imagine how good the steaks would have been if we had received them freshly cooked instead they sat somewhere for 10 minutes while we finished our salads.

We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary there. It was a lot louder then we expected. It was hard to carry on a conversation. We waited about 7 minutes after we were seated for our waiter to ask for our drink order. The food was good except my husbands prime rib was very under cooked.

I dine by myself often, do not like being sat in a walk area. When I dine in these dining restaurants I make sure it is not during the busy times so I can enjoy my meal. I try very hard to not stay to long so that servers can get there table back to set bigger parties. As I do like the food here, but do not go often and will not tell single people to enjoy your restaurant.
