    Had another great evening at the powerhouse with my wife and two friends. We are never disappointed and always leave full. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. Food came out in a timely fashion and everything we ordered was spot on. My wife and I come there at least once to twice a month one of our favorite places.

    Very expensive to begin with but adding a processing fee to your bill for using a credit card is inexcusable in a restaurant charging $118. for Surf and Turf. Just another reason to stay home.

    The petite filet was a great option because I was able to add a crabcake and my meal was still under $35. I love small plates, so this was a great option for me since I had the opportunity to try several things. The calamari was done perfectly! Veggies were properly cooked al dente. The house salad with homemade dressing was very good. Steak was prepared as ordered and perfect! This was our first time there, and we will definitely be back!

    We’ve never had bad service here. For Thanksgiving the service was awful, & there was hardly anyone there. The prices were too high. They charged us $4 for 4 pieces of bread to take home.

    Was there for Thanksgiving. I had the traditional turkey dinner but found the dressing too dry. My butternut squash salad was amazing! My husband had the prime rib. Was very tender but cooked a little too well. Service was impeccable thanks to our waiter Mike.

    Our dining experience here is normally excellent. However, the service was slow last night. We should have expected something would be a bit off when we waited a very long time for our entree to be served. This has happened to us here only once before and it was very unpleasant. While our meal was prepared to perfection, our food was served lukewarm. Within 5 minutes of eating, my wagyu beef was cold and the congealed fat that resulted was not appetizing at all. My husband's Delmonico steak arrived similarly, barely warm. It was a disappointment to what was overall a decent dining experience. It took so long for the food to come out that we didn't complain because we didn't want to wait an additional time period to get it corrected. Hope that our next experience is back to normal. We really love eating here and it would be a shame if this became the new normal.

    This is an attractive place and the service was excellent; however, the food was not well prepared. Both chicken dishes we ordered lacked finesse and were seriously under seasoned.

    We were seated at a really terrible table that has no business being a table. On one side was another table who were basically sitting with us, another side was a wall, another side was another table that was on top of us that I couldn’t move my chair back at all because of how close we were, and the kitchen door was the other side. It was pretty terrible

    Great service. Waitress was very kind and check on our table frequently. The atmosphere was unique and very clean. The food was not as tasty as I had hoped. It wasn’t horrible but very bland. I had the chicken Marcella- chicken coating tasted like it had soy sauce. The green beans were not fully cooked and bland.

    Food was great and delicious. Steak was cook perfectly and not overly seasoned. The veggies were tasty. Our server was nice but not attentive to us at all. He didn’t come and see if we needed anything. He was more attentive to a group as to a posed to just my husband and I. We weren’t even offered dessert. I had to ask him. The pb pie was amazing. It wasn’t like they were busy because it was the end of the night. It took an hour and a half to get our food and we put in our food order when we ordered our appetizer. Other table were fed before us and they sat down awhile after we did. We were very patient because we were out without kids and in no hurry but we felt like we didn’t matter. We are good tippers and we don’t get out alot and we gave him a fair tip because the food was great and we would go back but Michael was not attentive to us.

    Food was good, would like to see a fish entree on the menu other than salmon and your typical clam sauce, lobster tail, or shrimp. My biggest disappointment is the wine list! Quite a list of Italian wines, why? Would like to see some domestic wines, those listed were below average, and one higher end wine for $150. We have dined there many times and the wine list does not change for the better. Please consider revamping the wine list to include some cab blends. Thank you!

    Food was excellent, we had appetizers chili and French onion soup both were delicious. Our dinners were steak one New York strip and one fillet mignon both cooked exactly like we asked, sides rice and green beans with squash very good. Also had room for dessert we shared peanut butter pie so awesome…we definitely will be going back soon.

    Tremendous food, excellent service, very cool restaurant with a interesting history. Interesting, well prepared cocktails and special chowder was delicious and the salmon dish was tremendous. Risotto is difficult to get right and the lemon risotto that accompanied the salmon was perfect. Highly recommend this establishment.

    Our server Patty was phenomenal with on par recommendations. The bacon wrapped figs combined my favorites of savory with crunch and they were delicious! My wife and I split the special, goat cheese crusted Delmonico steak with a wine reduction. Even with splitting it between the two of us we had leftovers! And saving the best for last…the Powerhouse Manhattan! What a phenomenal drink! We savored it to the very last drop! We have been to Powerhouse many times and we always leave stuffed and happy!

    Food was okay. Service was fine although the server forgot to ring in our side dish and never brought a candle out for moms bday. Ambiance was blah. Lanterns/lights were not all lit. Been here before and the decor was festive. This time Powerhouse didn’t hit its mark this time.
