    A beautiful restaurant in a beautiful hotel. Server and staff were very friendly however several service lapses. Had to ask for water, and water was not refilled. My husband didn't want a drink to being, but asked to have server check back for a beer with dinner . . . server never asked again. Another guest asked for decaf coffee and never received. The menu lacked options for good shareable appetizers. Only one good fresh fish - but lots of beef options and the only chicken was southern fried. I did order the venison which was excellent. My friend ordered the ribeye medium well but came medium rare. Our mushrooms were very salty . The server did bring us another order of mushrooms and they were delicious. She offered to redo the steak, but my friend declined due to time. Server did not charge for steak. I'd return again if I was in the area. I'd like to see more vegetable options as side dishes; more fresh fish and a bit more attention to service.

    First class restaurant! The restaurant itself is beautiful. The servers are attentive and knowledgeable and the food is fantastic. We had the table side Wagyu tartar and oysters to start. My husband had the Venison and lobster and I had the grilled romaine salad. All very good! They gave us a complimentary glass of champagne and a special dessert for our Anniversary too. We will definitely be back!

    The food was really delicious. The knife slid through the steak like it was butter. The meat melted in my mouth. Our wait staff, Michele and Nick, were beyond attentive! They met our every need and then some. Everything is made fresh in house daily. The breads were worth every bite. Although the prices are too high for our budget, we still want to go at least once a year, so that we can feel like very special people!

    As reviewed previously, Stirrups has become our Go To fine dining destination. Although there are many options available in our central Florida area, none are quite as grand and impressive as Stirrups and The World Equestrian Center in Ocala

    I was dissapointed with the overall experience. I eat here a lot and for almost $400 for brunch much of the food was catered and seemed cheap. There weren't any special items for the mothers. Not even a simple balloon. I have a stroke and was seated in the lower tier of the terrace. I had to limp all the way out to the terrace and limp downstairs to get to my seat. I have a paralyzed arm and because of the stairs I couldnt even fix my own plate. In order to go to the bathroom, I had to traverse 2 sets of stairs, go through and outside the restarant, down a very long hall in order to go to the bathroom. It took me 24 minutes roundtrip to go to the bathroom!! There were two other tables nearby that were complaining. To top it off they added a $60 service charge and didn't even mention the tip was the charge. The servers only visited my table 3 times.

    We went for the Mother's Day Brunch. Overall it was an enjoyable experience. There could have been more breakfast foods available. A little disappointed that hummus was an option and not cream cheese or smoked salmon or something like that. Some of the food you;d have done with like a hollandaise sauce or something like that. I feel like drinks should have been included for that price. Ambience was wonderful, everyone was friendly, service was pretty good. I was just expecting a little more luxury experience.

    Service was spot on. Pacing was perfect, no rush, no discernible lag time. Food was spectacular, martini was perfect and the suggested wine perfectly complemented the main course.
