    My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Dressler’s last evening. The short rib and scallop entrees are a standout and consistently well prepared. The ahi tuna appetizer was also well done. Our server Julia was attentive, professional and friendly. Dressler’s Metropolitan is a staple in our line-up when we are looking for an evening out.

    Would definitely come again. All our meals were great. We got the halibut, pasta, and shrimp and grits as our main dishes. We also had the house salad which was one of the best house salads I've had. Pimento cheese with bread was 😋. Staff was great!

    Me and my wife 5 year wedding anniversary meal was wonderful from the food the service only thing I could improve was the location where we was seated. We was placed directly in the middle of the restaurant with a four seat table and it was as only two of us , it made no sense being we did make reservations. It was kinda a inconvenient place to sit and have year 5 anniversary dinner

    Not worth the money. Food lacked flavor, especially the ahi tuna. Better shrimp and grits can be found most anywhere. Filet was cooked nicely and salads were good. Cocktail was not prepared correctly, so had to switch to wine. Nice atmosphere, but server was very disengaged and didn't want to be there. Overall, it was a mediocre experience.

    Michael gave great service, we were greeted with a Happy Anniversary by the hostess. We both had the glazed salmon, and it was perfect, especially the vegetable mix with it. That tomato provided a great contrast to the dish. We’ve already recommended Dresslers to our foodie friends. Also liked the wine by the glass instead of pushing a bottle, a great Malbec.

    From seating to serving the experience was amazing. We tried a variety of items from the menu everything tasted flavorful tempered, with a great presentation. The servers, managers, checked on us throughout each course being served and were pleasant and informative on all menu questions. I would refer and dine here again. Top tier!

    We are frequent diners and last night was absolutely awful. From the rubbery & oily calamari, to the overcooked & charred chicken, to the mushy chicken fingers and burnt fries and finally the most awful salmon dish I’ve ever received in a restaurant even cooked twice. The salmon was well done and incredibly salty. The sides were an absolute grease bomb and swimming in oil. It was an absolute disaster of an evening at Dressler’s!
