Great brunch. Been a few times. Pastrami Hash very good and the OG burger is delicious. Of course have to get their daily donut special at the end. Only disappointment was my drink. Tasted good but was all crushed ice. Way too much that it was hard to drink

This is my 2nd review in a couple of days as it was so good, I went back. This time, my husband and I sat at the bar. There was plexiglass in between every 2 seats and between the customer and bar staff. The bar seats were not served by the bar staff, but by a server. The bar staff was only making drinks and replenishing the supplies.

The food was amazing, as always. We had a variety of items. Popovers, oysters, duck confit French onion soup, spicy pork belly and a sirloin steak special. Not a bad word to say about anything. The service was great. Our server was attentive and happy to make suggestions. The atmosphere was fun. I say that because it was busy and a little loud and seemed as is everyone was having a good time.

I felt safe and felt that they were taking every precaution to ensure safety of customers and their staff. I have always been a fan of Ledger and will definitely be back.

Went to ledger for dinner with my best friend after having not been there since prior to the pandemic. All I can say it was as amazing as always. The food was amazing. The service was great. It was a little more exciting than it used to be but that is to be expected. The restaurant was pretty busy and all of the available bar seats were filled. They were very careful and cautious while being courteous of your space. I’ll tables and bar seats had barriers between them. It was so good that it is two days later, and I am going back with my husband.

Food was absolutely AMAZING. it took them a little long to seat us even though we had a reservation and the waitress took a while between visits to our table. They were very accommodating when we didnt like one of the drinks we received and the who aesthetic was really cool. I ordered the Halibut bouillabaisse and it was, hands down, one of the best things I have ever eaten.

The menu is imaginative and had multiple courses and options so anyone could find something they liked. The service was smooth and cordial, not intrusive but was attentive. The brussell sprouts were amazing, as were the popovers. The sirloin steak was tender and perfectly done, as were the potatoes with it. I was sad that the espresso cheesecake was no longer on the menu, but the sticky toffee pudding and panna cotta made up for it. It's relatively expensive compared to where we usually go out to eat but worth the cost.

Ledger was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had! The ambiance was just right, our server was animated and very friendly yet thorough. The drinks were strong snd flavorful! We had popovers with the most amazing butter. The halibut came with an unreal broth, the mashed potato purée was unbelievable. We ended up ordering 3 different ice creams and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. This place was pricey, but we would only be coming here for special occasions anyway so it worked. I would definitely recommend Ledger to family and friends.
