Sloppy service this time. Appetizers forgotten, mushrooms arrive almost after steak consumed, plates took forever to be removed, had to seek own refills. Not the anniversary dinner we have experienced each year for past six years. Steaks were over salted and over peppered this time. Never like that before.

The service was great, the food was under cooked I asked for medium, the steak was rare, my companion had fish it was not cooked thoroughly, the managers and server were very nice about it, but for the those prices it wasn’t a very good experience food wise

Shanahans was the perfect spot to celebrate a milestone birthday. The wait staff was quite attentive but, not overly so. Steaks and sides were first rate as was the wine selection and birthday dessert!

So we made a reservation a month in advance and when we were sat it was a 4 top setting instead of a 2 top (felt like we were just placed there like a walk in, moving 2 place settings as we r seated), then when sat for this special occasion we were sat next to a family with a young child and the child was showing their age. So now we are upset, and the waitress asks what we want to drink...ugh. So then she pours and offers my date his BEER (like a tasting) but my wine gets handed to me filled from behind I have no clue where and from what bottle. Food was great and I’d love to talk more about it but can’t when huge factors ruin a special trip!!!

This post is based on the weekly Sunday prix-fixe $49/59 special. That is an outstanding value but since it is only 1 night per week, I listed value at 4-of-5 stars in consideration for many people. To be sure, even those other nights, it is comparable to other fine steakhouses or fine dining in general but some people might have a bit of sticker-shock. For those who want a great, perfectly prepared and served steak (and other items) in a great atmosphere, this is a wonderful place. My ONLY complaint, and this is based on multiple visits on various nights, the front check-in needs an "upgrade". Hostesses who can probably not even legally drink have no business being the first point-of-contact and running the table selection. This time I arrived literally to the minute for my reservation, was greeted without emotion and then had to wait several minutes. No "we're setting the table" or "give us a minute please". Literally, nothing. Just, OK, stand over there. And same for others coming in. I've watched this in the past and even have had to wait, again nothing said, for 15 minutes. I get that things can run late (though a good desk is run better than that) but then offer a drink or, at least, acknowledge the delay. Once you are seated though, it's perfection but any professional review (from Forbes to Michelin) would take-off serious marks for this type of greeting. Each-and-every-time.

I just attended Shanahan's for an anniversary, and it was wonderful. The food was delicious, and the setting was perfect. We had a reservation for 2 at 7:30 on a Saturday, and we ended up having to wait an additional 30 minutes. They were sincerely apologetic and offered us a complimentary appetizer of our choice (we did the Calamari, which is $18). We also received a complimentary dessert for our anniversary.

The wine selection is abundant, and the cocktails were delicious. The food was sizzling on the plates upon arrival at our table and was still delicious the next day reheated. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion or if you're interested in spending a good amount of money.

My reservations were at 7:30pm. We weren’t seated until about 8:15. Then, we were seated in the bar area and I wasn’t happy about it. I told the server I preferred not to sit in the bar, but she said there was nothing that could be done. I spent a great deal of money to sit directly under and look directly at a television set! It was definitely not the experience I wanted to treat my guests to.

The food and service were good, but I was very unhappy with sitting in the bar.

Seated 45 minutes after our reservation time, which was early at 6:45 p.m. Asked to wait at bar but bar was more than crowded with people eating dinner at bar. What a waste! It's a shame because the food is excellent but if these people really knew how to run a restaurant, they forgot how to do it long ago! And I am a frequent Diner at this restaurant -- go figure!

The steaks were exquisite. We made reservations 2 weeks prior to our dinner and asked for a table for 4 at the window. We weren’t placed near the window and in was pretty noisy for our birthday celebration. Overall, it was very nice.

This turned out to be a perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday with the whole family. I was little concerned about allowing the 5-yr-old and 8-yr-old grandsons attend, but the Shanahan's staff handled them beautifully, bringing additional coloring sheets without being asked when they noticed the boys had filled their first ones. The food was amazing. Steaks melted in our mouths, brussels sprouts burst with flavor, and the carrot cake for dessert went around the table twice and we still had leftovers. It was ideal for building some terrific family memories.

As always, the service and ambiance were outstanding. The lobster bisque is the best and the french onion soup is also very good. The sourdough bread is also great. The 6 oz. fillet was overdone for medium, and the lobster tail was also overcooked. Not enough to send it back, but not what one would expect at these prices. The steaks are dry without some sauce, but I think it ruins the taste of the meat. The scallops were very good and so was the grilled asparagus. The free birthday dessert was a really yummy chocolate mousse, and the S'mores brownie sundae was really decadent and delicious; it's more than enough for two. We've had better steaks here before, and you can get better steaks at other places. Overall, it's a great place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
