    First time visiting Auburn City Steakhouse. Nice atmosphere. Food was very good. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked perfectly for us. The Sommelier was extremely knowledgeable, the wine list was interesting and offered wines we will definitely be trying in the future. Overall, great first experience.

    We have gone here alot. Love it ...usually. I don't know what's changed or if the popularity has caused issues with the standard? We dined for Valentines Day WITH my out of town parents, (table of 4) it was not a pleasant experience. The calamari, was as usual...amazing. outside of that...not so much. My husband ordered prime rib, the texture was so bad and unlike anything we have ever had, he literally couldn't chew it and spit it out. Totally un-chewable. They brought him a ribeye instead, ordered medium to be safe, it came out PURPLE rare. The waitress first noticed and then it was sent back to be re fired. At this point he didn't eat it, because he was very anxious over the whole process. We left the to go box and all. My filet, mid-rare was no seasoning whatsoever and was like the texture of dried out roast beef. The baked potatoes were ABSOLUTELY terrible and cold and multiple tables around us complained. Never did the manager or anyone come to the table. We ordered dessert, carrot cake and creme brulee. Cake, delicious. They unbeknownst to us gave us the $8.00 dessert for no charge for the trouble. So so happy that they have gotten busier and thriving, the quality control is definitely not what it once was. We were saddened.

    This is our 3rd visit we brought my in-laws to try it out. We raced about the calamari appetizer that was phenomenal the first 2 times this time was over cooked and not nearly as good. The dinner did not disappoint at all although mother inlaws mashed potatoes were cold. The salad too was not as good as our first 2 visits. But still was a great dining experience I recommend if possible don't go on a Saturday evening if so go a little later when it's less busy.

    We had an enjoyable evening dining with another couple. Most of the food we ate was very good, however, we did find the special scallop dish was somewhat flat and underseasoned. Service was very good! This was our 3rd visit and we will be back ... we just won't order the scallops again :)

    We eat at Auburn City often and today had to be one of our best experiences from start to finish. First let me say the martinis we had were probably the best we have had I a long time. The appetizers and salad were just right and our meals were cooked and presented perfectly. Can’t wait to go back.

    Never been there before. The atmosphere is really nice, we loved the location in Auburn. The service was slow, took a while for someone to show up at our table, after that, she did come more often. The drinks seemed a bit watered down. I ordered a medium-well 12oz prime rib, my wife ordered a medium Delmonico. Mine was done just right, although 1/3 of my prime rib was all fat. Prime rib will have some fat, but this was an entire 1/3 on my plate. They should have cut that off before presenting it to our table. My wife’s steak looked almost rare. She sent it back and it was returned cooked more thoroughly. Also, the side of chopped salad was rather small. Nice atmosphere, but there is too much competition in this space to return.

    We haven't eaten here in over a year due to the food quality not being as good as in the past. We were very pleasantly surprised how things had improved. A new menu and the food was top notch! There were 5 of us and all raved about how excellent EVERYTHING was. Glad they have made a come back!

    The food & service continues to be very good. We have eaten here many times. Was disappointed in the creamed spinach with bacon; very salty & I love salt. They also got us in earlier than our late reservation which we appreciated. Will continue to patronize this restaurant!

    Outstanding evening New Years Eve! The service and food were outstanding. We had the New York strip and it was very delicious. We usually go once a year and this year I’d give everything an A+! The restaurant has so much history and was renovated to perfection. It’s more than just the food that is great.

    We had a party of 12 reserved for New Year's Eve. We eat at Auburn City pretty regularly and have had zero complaints. We love this place but this time we were thoroughly disappointed. The atmosphere is always wonderful and the food is typically very good but this time the service was terrible. We had to ask our server multiple times for our sides that didn't arrive with our meals, our server accidentally poured a drink down the backs and on the coats of two of the people in our party causing one of them to spill their drink all over the table leaving a sticky mess on several. It was a chain reaction of unfortunate events and while I felt bad for our server and completely understand that accidents happen, there was little to no help cleaning up and very little apology. Typically when something like this happens a manager will come over and acknowledge the situation with apologies but that didn't happen. It would have been nice to offer to pick up the tab for having to have the coats dry cleaned. We probably would not have taken them up on the offer but it would have been nice to at least offer. We got the impression that our server just did not want to be there. It didn't ruin our evening by any stretch but we might consider going somewhere else for our next special occasion.

    Some food arrived cold. Steaks cooked to medium were very red. Steak cooked to medium rare was raw. Service was spotty. Closes at 8:30, so 7 pm reservation resulted in no time for dessert.
    Auburn City SteakhouseResponded on December 21, 2023
    Hello Anonymous, I'm sorry to hear that some of your food arrived cold and steaks were prepared incorrectly. If things were as poor as you claim, I wish you would have mentioned something to your server or a manager while you were here. We would have been happy to bring a replacement. I know that no steaks that left the kitchen were "raw". A 7pm reservation is certainly not too late to order dessert. Our 8:30 closing time does not mean you need to be out by then, simply that we will not accept any more new tables as we're winding down. Thanks for joining us and Merry Christmas.

    My nephew that was visiting from New York thought everything was very good from the setting to the service and the meals. I wasn’t expecting my pork chop to be so large though so most of it became my meal the next day. And of course we will be back. We love visiting the Auburn Steakhouse.

    We have been there when it first opened, and it was OK for the price. Heard good things lately and decided to try it again. First experience when checking in should have warned me to just walk away. The host snapped at us, when we told him a girl had already helped us. Decided to stay and I asked waiter if that was the owner? Waiter immediately apologized for him, and said that he is not normally here; I didn’t say anything bad about him. Then the food, chopped salad was terrible, soggy mess. Crab cakes were mushy and cold in middle, so bad that my wife sent them back. Halibut was overcooked, but at least edible. Overall horrible experience, with the exception of waiter, he was great.
