Food was great...my server was excellent...
Dessert is a very important end to a dinner. Either was out or did not taste well. Had the naked cheese cake...no sauce no fruit....just dry...

This is the only restaurant we never miss when we visit from Pittsburgh 5 or 6 times a year...Blackened Heart of the Ribeye is hands down the best steak we have EVER had anywhere in the country :)
The staff is always super efficient and friendly and remember where we visit from and welcome us back each time...a top notch establishment!

Need vegetarian options other than salad and sides. I was offered pasta with asparagus. Dessert presentation was very lacking - plain cheesecake on a plate - no sauce or effort to make it look nice.

We decided to celebrate recent successes at Dressler’s. Our server was very attentive with an extremely pleasant demeanor. The food was delicious and our wine pairing was perfect. Be sure to try the halibut!
It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while!

Early New Years Eve date. Nice crowd at Dresslers in Birkdale. Food and drinks excellent, waitress nice but wine didn’t come out with meal and coffee did not come out with dessert. Otherwise everything was great.

Outstanding. My filet was perfectly cooked, service was impeccable, we weren't rushed, dessert and coffee topped off a wonderful time. Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Wine list was not lengthy but the selections were carefully chosen. We had 2 different wines, and both were very nice. A little pricey but worth it.

We enjoyed our dinner at Dressler’s tremendously. The food was amazing…my daughter and I ordered the crab cake for appetizer and the Seared Tuna as our main entree..finished it off with a yummy cheesecake! Our waitress Jennifer was very attentive and our glasses were never empty! Glad we chose to visit and we‘ll be back soon!

New Year’s Eve meal was the occasion. The tables for two were both very close together and much too small to allow for a pleasurable dining experience. Food was quite good as was expected.

Had dinner New Years eve with some friends. The most outstanding thing was the service, the wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and pleasant all evening. I had the salmon appetizer which I highly recommend, one of the best I have had, followed by the onion soup which is very good and for the entree I had the halibut which was also good. For desert some crème brûlée and port wine. They can also make a good martini, folks at the table samples various martinis all of which were good. Overall an excellent dinner, we will return.

Excellent as always. It was the first time eating here for my significant other. The cocktails were outstanding, our server was very attentive and personable. He made great suggestions on what to order. Our meal was delicious and the courses were timed perfectly. I always look for reasons to go to Dressler’s. Can’t wait to return.

Love Dressler’s and this visit was no exception! We picked the restaurant for a special occasion and had a wonderful time. The appetizers and entrees were all excellent. To start we had beef medallions, crab dip and Cajun shrimp. For dinner we had cowboy ribeyes, hearts of ribeye and salmon. To top it off, our server was amazing. She was attentive, friendly, professional and took extra care with a couple of special requests. It was a 5-star night!

We have not been to Dressler’s in some time. It was superb. The food was excellent - we had the halibut, salmon, and roasted chicken. And the calamari appetizer was great as well. The entire evening was so enjoyable.
