Food and service were top notch! I found the chairs a titch uncomfortable, but that’s a really nit-picky complaint.

Love going to Perspectives on Friday nights for dinner with my husband. We have a couple of cocktails and some dinner while listening to beautiful live jazz!
If you haven’t gone, you should try it out! Fantastic!

A lovely evening out.
Good food, and excellent service.
Live piano music was lovely.
We sat on the lower level away from the live music so we could talk. It was a little cool here, and not as cozy as the actual Lounge, but good for conversation. Our server, Deborah, was really excellent; friendly; efficient, and very attentive.

My husband and I wanted to have a relaxing meal and listen to some Jazz. We enjoyed our dinner at the bar, the service was great. We enjoyed the food and cocktails. The ambiance was nice and relaxing after a hard work week. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have agreed to make it a regular occasion and have booked another reservation.

Food was just ok - wanted an omelette as was listed on the breakfast menu - told that omelettes are only on brunch menu - seemed super odd that I was reading omelette - couldn’t u just cook scrambled in an omelette. Lol

We found the brunch to be lackluster.
The eggs Bennie only came with runny yolk which we didn’t enjoy. The waffle with general Tao was small. The coffee was in very small cups. The fries with the eggs be ok were basic roadhouse frozen type.
I guess we just expected more than typical roadhouse fare.

I reserved a table a week before, but was given an added table below and behind the bar. It felt like a cafeteria so we asked to move but there were apparently no tables so we sat at the bar. The duck and steak were tasty of course but my duck came with one piece of asparagus and nothing else. Not the dining experience I was hoping for that's for sure.

Perspectives is decidedly a high end restaurant with great food,very reasonably priced for that category and a wonderful restaurant anytime and of course for special occasions .We went for Thanksgiving dinner—lovely.
Been there for a quick eat many times—chicken wings is a must eat!
High Quality Food.

I appreciate that we are easing back into things after covid so I hesitate in writing a poor food review. The service was slow but I gave it 5 stars because everyone was very pleasant. The food on the other hand was very poor quality. It was lukewarm temperature and undercooked . We ordered simple eggs Benedict and the classic breakfast. Both were sub standard quality.

It was not a five star experience….I remember brookstreet being number 1 and it was a bit disappointing to see the food selection and presentation. Very limited and the dishes were quite simple with no extra pizzazz. The plates arrived feeling like something is missing. The eggs Benedict could have come with fruit for example.

Had a reunion with family and this was the perfect place to catch up and enjoy a delicious meal. The 8oz steaks were done to perfection and the stuffed chicken was equally as delicious. Our waiter was great and the noise level was subdued enough for easy conversation. We were seated in the Jazz Lounge area which was perfect and assured we weren’t in close proximity to other diners.

We had asked for indoor reservations and were placed outside. The portions of food are way too small.
Service was ok at best.
We expected more for our 200 bill. It was my son's birthday and no extras, not even a birthday wish.

We were staying at the hotel for our anniversary. We had dinner at the hotel to celebrate. The food was nothing short of AMAZING!

The service was the issue. Our poor server Rob was basically set up to fail. He had 2 tables outside, along with 2 inside AND a large birthday party. The demanding host of the party monopolized a lot of his time. Because of this the rest of his tables suffered. He should never have been put in that position. We were only aware of the situation due to where we sat. The rest more than likely assumed he was inattentive.

I am sure this would not always be the case and the ambiance and delicious food are worth the visit.
