The quality of food was outstanding. So many places claim they have great crab cakes, but don’t. Mendenhall’s crab cakes were delicious with very little filler. The bananas foster was worth every calorie! Scrumptious! Our server could not have been more friendly and attentive. We’re looking forward to coming back!

Not that we were dressed to the nines, many folks appear like they were at McDonalds. The world is just too casual and even the Matre 'd and captain were no longer wearing dress suits/Tuxedos. The food was good but not like when I went there 40 years ago when Ollie was our favorite waiter. The best of the evening was our waiter Andy, who super attentive and provided excellent service. The greeting when we arrive was just so so and no one but our waiter inquired how our dinner was. The grandeur of fine dining is the thing of the past in the area.

I would definitely go back again when I have time everything is moderately priced a little on the fancy side but not too crazy! And of course the food was the best part of the whole thing! Our server and the rest of the staff were absolutely the nicest and hardest working people!

Service was good, but the issue is the food and ambience. Serving champagne in stemless wine glasses, mix-matched tacky decor and over-cooked meat are not what you expect from a place with this reputation and price. We won't be back.

Much appreciated. The service was outstanding, in fact, everything was just perfect. We had to hurry a bit because we had reservations at Longwood Garden and the staff handled well. I can't say enough about the service and food! Thank you so much for the wonderful meal.

She didn't know the menu and wasn't trained properly in food diet options. We ordered our drinks and it took around 15 minutes for them to arrive. Our food took about the same time. It was obvious after the meal that the chef had used way too much MSG on the Prime Rib and the Duck because both my wife and I were terribly thirsty and had that weird after taste you get in your mouth after consuming food prepared with MSG. This is a superb restaurant that obviously needs to pause and hit the reset button on service and food preparation in 2022. I would recommend the restaurant but with instructions to the maitre'd and the chef for my friends.
