    Unfortunately we were both disappointed. It was our 44th wedding anniversary and we heard such great things about this restaurant so we decided to drive almost an hour for what we hoped was a fabulous meal . Our meal was disappointing. Friends who had dined at the restaurant a few months ago loved it but something must have changed. Our special evening was average at best. We arrived a little early and had a nice drink at the bar. The bartender was excellent and she made great drinks and was very personable. Our waitress however was a bit unfriendly and seemed annoyed when I asked a question about one of the entrées. The fried calamari was chewy. My wife had the special red snapper filet with a seafood arrachinni rice ball and asparagus. The red snapper was delicious, but the rice ball was gooey. I had the seared scallops which came with 6 large scallops which were good but the crawfish risotto was tasteless. Creme brûlée was delicious! Once again, overall we were disappointed in what turned out to be an average meal and overall experience.

    I was looking for a great place to have dinner and catch up with a friend. We had a lovely meal and were able to talk for a couple of hours with out pressure. The Grilled Octopus was perfect and Salmon was very tasty. We then had expresso and coffee which was smooth and tasty. The experience and food was perfect.

    We are frequent customers. Last night was awful. Server was rude to start with, once she knew we were upset, our level of service dropped to a zero. Got my goto app which is muscles, flavor was amazing as always, but at least 1/3 of muscles were dead and closed. Asked waitress to make sure chef was aware, manager came over and apologized. We informed manager of service issue. Next time waitress came by with new drinks she slammed them on table. Totally unprofessional. Something has changed with 3501, menu is stale and unimaginative, service was awful. Will not be going back for quite some time. So sad to have to write this. Better off spending $$ at Shelby.

    Atmosphere in back room is ok, nothing special. Service was par for a diner and food for the price was nothing special. We had scallops, sea bass and key lime pan a cotta for dessert. Scallops were good, but sauce and risotto were bland. Sea bass wasn’t bad, but again nothing special. Dessert tasted like it had been in a refrigerator for days, very little key lime flavor. Our last meal here 6 months ago was great and service was terrific. Possibly tonight was just an off night:(

    Dinner menu, small sizes, not worth the money. Filet mignon 6oz $46. Left hungry. Braised short ribs needed extra sauce as it was a bit dry. Atmosphere was very loud, the sound was coming from the var area, don't go there on a Thursday or Friday before 7pm.

    It up to the standard of our many other visits - post Covid loss of white table clothes, service too fast ie bringing main course before even through appetizers. We will probably try again because of our many favorable occasions we have had at 3501 but overall disappointing.

    When we arrived we were told they did not have our open table reservation but could seat us anyway. Food was very good. Service was adequate but definitely does not match the price of the food.

    I eat there quite a bit with my girlfriends for holiday occasions, and girlfriend get togethers for drinks. Usually a very good time, good, service, drinks!!! But, Yesterday was my birthday so I recommended taking my family there for lunch. Well what a disappointment. Drinks were wonderful!! Appetizer was great, we actually landed ordering the calamari again for an additional order, they loved it. Until our lunch came. It was AWFUL. My daughter in law ordered a Caesar salad with shrimp and bacon… the shrimp was left off. My grandson ordered the chicken sandwich PLAIN NOTHING ON IT! Welp it came with nothing in it but sauce!! I ordered Caesar salad with lump crab or crab cake. The waitress came back told me no more crab was available but had a shrimp cake - WAS AWFUL ABSOLUTELY GROSS! My husband ordered shrimp cake with side of rice brought out just rice. It was a DISASTER! Let’s just say for what we paid- we will not be returning anytime soon. Food was nothing to celebrate a birthday about. Maybe tweek your menu!

    Nice atmosphere, good drinks, good service, food was mediocre at best. I had veal medallions that were huge chunks like pork. It was served on a bed of lentils, which was unappealing. Price 275 for 3 - ok price if you enjoyed the food, but we did not. Even the dessert tasted old.

    Food was good, but for those prices I expected it to be closer to amazing. We spent $170 on 2 people; 2 dinners, 1 app, 2 drinks. I doubt we will go back as our experience did not match the cost.

    As always, 3501 provided a great meal! My husband and I have been there at least 10 times over the last 15 years and have never been disappointed. The crab and mango spring rolls are a must have each time, as are the chicken dumplings. For our meals, we had a lamb bolognese over penne and veal medallions over chirizo risotto. Both were excellent. Dessert was top notch as well (flourless brownie and almond cheesecake). My only suggestion would be that, if you are the type that likes sweet cocktails, go another drink avenue as theirs tend a little more towards the dry side.
