    This place, is outstanding. Starting with the service, our server was very professional, and not overbearing, because we are not looking to celebrate with the server. The volume of the restaurant was quite loud but people were having fun and so did we. Our food and steaks were prepared masterfully. The cocktail special of the evening, I don’t recall the name but was superb. I will tell you Parking is a little tight however to come to such a unique place like this they didn’t plan for parking back in 1838 with his building was built.

    As it has been for many years, Public Landing is my favorite restaurant. Our server was wonderful, drinks were perfect, the appetizer was delicious...but, our steaks were not up to par. We ordered a charred NY Strip steak, and it was full of gristle and very difficult to cut through, even with a steak knife! Once we got through the tough, outer part of the steak, the meat was fine. I expected better and was disappointed. My friend and I paid $40/each for the steak. Dessert was wonderful. We shared the caramel glazed bread pudding, and it was a winner. I'm not going to stop dining at P.L. but they should know about the poor quality of this particular steak.

    The food was prepared perfectly but the food was served cold the bread was presented at the end of the meal the dessert menu had to be asked for being that the menu was limited we were expecting a hot meal. We felt rushed and didn't really receive the whole dining out experience for the price. The wait staff that kept the water glasses full were spot on very courtesy and nice great job. Perhaps we will give the Public Landing another try in the future. Thank You

    Public Landing a beautiful place, especially during the holidays. We ordered stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, and they were delicious. The halibut entree included brussel sprouts and lobster risotto. The brussel sprouts were perfect, the halibut a little overdone, but both were good. The risotto was more like rice, and definitely on the dry side. Risotto should be creamy, and this was not at all. Other dishes were the stuffed whitefish and lamb. Overall, it was a really good dinner experience.

    new year’s eve. food was great. service wonderful. but what we love about public landing is the atmosphere. music is low and even on new year’s eve noise level was low enough that we could all carry on a conversation without screaming at each other. this is another reason i take business clients here. easy to converse.

    We dine here for my Sister’s birthday who was here from out of town. When we got there the host asked who birthday’s it was and I told him. The waiter was cold and not attentive and never asked or didn’t do anything for her birthday. The food was not hot and the steak wasn’t good. My husband and I comes here often but this was not a good experience.

    Our party enjoyed an amazing holiday celebration at the Public Landing. First of all the restaurant was decorated beautifully. We were greeted with a smile and sat at a table beneath a well lit wreath. Our server Vanessa was knowledgeable, friendly and most of all humerus. We feasted upon an abundance of well prepared and very flavorful steaks. My wife enjoyed her Beef Wellington, while I drooled over a NY strip. Carmen, my son in law had filet medallions with a touch of red wine Demi and he was overjoyed. The only downside to the evening was that it had to end at some point. The wine flowed as did the laughs. This is our new holiday tradition. 👍

    It’s 1 st time going. It was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves think. Table of 6 adults nexts were so loud screaming laughing it was terrible. Talked to the manager after His attitude made it worst. He actually said. Some people like to have fun. I said so do we but not as rude and inconsiderate to the whole restaurant. Manager than said. Come back on a Tuesday. I don’t think so!!! Food was okay. Had better.

    I love the ambiance and holiday decor of this historic place. Even though they had several holiday parties going on the food was good and The service was good for a busy lunch. They have slimmed down the menu from last year and some items I loved were gone. Wish I could tell you what they were but I can’t remember. But the food was still good and the drinks were festive. I had the beef stroganoff (good size portion) and the winter spritzer was very good. Mules were liked as well.

    Everything good except the server, Harold. Distant, not the least friendly, sometimes curt, never smiled, minimal checking on how we were doing. Disdainful treatment - perhaps we were a burden? Told him two of the people in our group of six were celebrating birthdays, he acknowledged, but then then the checks arrived with no birthday mini desserts. Reminded him, he seemed surprised, returned after about five minutes, tried to give the birthday desserts to the wrong people. We are not frequent customers, but regular return customers for special occasions. The place is usually good, the service this time was not up to the standard we have experienced in the past..
