    Food was excellent. Our server, Marshall, was attentive but not hovering. Several staff members stopped by our table to make sure we were well cared for.

    The food, environment, and alcohol was all excellent. I got the ribeye with a butter sauce and pomme purée which was phenomenal! The service with our waiter was okay. He was a little short and unapologetic when it came to correcting some of our orders. Other than the waiter, we thought very highly here!

    After a reservation at an Auburn restaurant so dirty that we ended walking out, we were delighted to be able to get a table at The Krebs. Our waiter, Marshall, was attentive and very serious about making sure we got the best possible service. The food was excellent: we shared a mussels appetizer. The mussels were a bit briny but good. I had the duck and spouse had the chicken a l'orange. Both our meals were excellent. The duck was perfectly cooked -- a huge win as duck can be hard to get right. Overall, highly recommend Krebs 1899. Price point is reasonable given the excellent food and service.

    Krebs was a beautiful ambiance to visit. We enjoyed cocktails, a mushroom pate and asparagus soup as starters. Both were delicious, flavorful and items we couldn’t or wouldn’t make at home. Jasmine and crew were attentive, had good recommendations and banter. The entrees and desserts were lovely and finished despite such a full meal already. Would return, really enjoyed.

    I certainly did enjoy dining at The Krebs. It was my second visit, the first being in 1957 when I was a student at Cortland. At that time each course was served in a different room. Obviously most memorable after so many years!!!

    Food was excellent. Our server Jesse was excellent. I thought that for the quality of food and service that the price was reasonable. $130ish for app, bottle of wine, 2 entrees, and a dessert.

    Our server Jesse handled an entire room professionally which included an extremely loud and demanding table of 5 who seemed to think they were the only patrons. He recognized all the other guests promptly and checked back frequently during our delicious dinner. The food lived up to our previous visits. The bread was excellent but we missed the variety of the past. Caesar wedge salad was shared. We followed with rib eye steak and a very inventive scallops special. Both we excellent. Jesse’s recommendations were right on track and he held it together despite the obnoxious neighboring table.
