Great steak! My husband and I like to go for special occasions. We get two sides to share with our steaks. Servers are always very polite and professional. We usually
Spend about $200-$250 with a tip when ordering wine and dinner. They have given complimentary dessert for both my birthday and my husbands birthday.

Heard a lot of great things from friends. Food was great but it was RUINED by the awful waitress we had. Ordered a cosmo for my wife and before I could request vodka she rushed off. It was the same thing with everything we would order. She waited on us as if she was doing us a favor. Absolutely terrible...she ruined what we thought would be a great time.

Love this restaurant but we didn’t have good luck with the potatoes - they were extremely salty and had to be returned twice. The staff was wonderful about this and gave us another selection without hesitation. Very good service. We will return!

We decided to have a special dinner on New Year's Eve and of course Lewnes' came to mind. The restaurant is open late which is wonderful. We enjoyed one of the very best dinners out we have had in a while. One of our favorite places. Not only are the steaks the best around, but the ambiance, wine offerings, cozy nature of the booths, and customer service (Patty!) were truly wonderful. What a special place. We'll be back again soon!

Food was very good - my fiancé got filet mignon, I got the NY strip (which was huge!), and we shared the mashed potatoes and onion rings. They also give you fresh, warm bread and butter after you order. We were there to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday and they gave us a complimentary brownie sundae - delicious!

Classic steakhouse decor and very good service. Jen, our server, was outstanding--attentive but unobtrusive. All meats were excellent: steaks, lambchops, porkchop. Perfectly cooked, too. Salmon Oscar style was outstanding. Awesome wine list, too. However, sides were disappointing. Potatoes Lyonnais were overcooked, mostly onions, and no cheese at all. Spinach a la George was cold and tasteless. Perhaps we chose wrongly? Food but pedestrian desserts: so-so Key Lime Pie, good Raspberry Sorbet, although whipped cream on sorbet seemed a strange choice. Best was the brownie a la mode. This would be a better value and earn 5 stars if they upped their game on the sides and desserts. We did enjoy it overall, but would expect better for the price.

Lewnes has been our favorite restaurant for our anniversary over the years. We were able to secure a reservation for Christmas Eve a month before the holiday. We were so pleased to be able to celebrate Christmas together at this perfect spot. As always the filet mignon for him and the three lamb chops for me were excellent cuts. The hash browns for him and the saute spinach for me were delicious. We recommend the key lime pie for dessert. Overall an excellent dinner. We plan to go back for our anniversary dinner in January. Thank you Lewnes.

Very disappointing this year. Bragged how delicious our food was two years ago, it was FANTASTIC. The food was absolutely melt in your mouth! This year the steak was dry and not alot of moisture. The prime rib was too salty and had to send them back. However, staff and service were fantastic and the complimentary dessert tray was awesome! We will give it a try again though in hopes for that abssolutely melt in your mouth steak we had in 2016!!!!

Elegant dining in a classic setting - service by Adam efficient, helpful and pleasant. Wonderful dinner for six including two daughters with beaus. Celebrated one birthday plus Christmas visit from out-of-towners and things couldn’t have been better. Steaks were done to perfection, sides and appetizers were magnificent and birthday dessert was the perfect ending to a perfect evening. If you want it done right, go to Lewnes.

My husband chose this restaurant for our 2-year anniversary. Lewnes was so romantic and the restaurant had so much character! Our seat was also by the window that has a wine cellar. It was absolutely beautiful. The filet mignon and crab cakes were outstanding and they honored us with a complimentary dessert for our special day. Lewnes is our new date-night spot. I’m so happy he found this gem!
