    Given the spaciousness of the dining room our party of 2 arrived to be seated much too close to the next table. We have eaten at stirrups many times before and if I am not mistaken they used white cloth table cloths. This time the tables were set on glass tops which although sanitary are very noisy and cold.,service was overkill as were asked by 2 serves at a time if we were satisfied. An establishment of this caliber should have a dress code

One suggestion: lights should be dim for evening dinner, would dramatically improve the sophisticated atmosphere of the gorgeous room!

    3rd time at Stirrup’s was a charm. Service and food were outstanding compared to prior visits. We had scallops, shrimp and grits, Artic char and bucatini carbonara. All were excellent with sides being very hot and freshly made. Caramel bread pudding was to die for. Raw oysters and deviled egg appetizers were delicious. Let’s not forget Cassidy, our server. Special thanks for a job well done! A great evening for everyone!

    The staff and atmosphere was great! The food was below average compared to previous experiences. Everything was over salted and somewhat tasteless. We are going to give it another try to see if maybe it was a bad night with the salt shaker.

    Great staff, food, and atmosphere. Only thing that bothered me was within 2 minutes of the salad coming for the table, the steaks and sides came out. So my very expensive steak sat and got cold while I was rushing to eat my salad.

    Amazing service and atmosphere. The staff was first class all the way. The drinks were great. However we did not think the food was worth the money. It was just above average, however overly priced. Steaks were no better then longhorns. I was very disappointed in the food.
