The food at Stirrups was top-notch. The menu has a lot of tempting offerings. The corn bisque, mushroom pasta, ribeye, and truffle fries were all outstanding. The restaurant is beautiful and it resides in a beautiful hotel. The acoustics are such that we had to repeat ourselves frequently--even with carpeting the restaurant is loud (though this is a minor complaint). Our main problem was that the service was not nearly as attentive as it should be for a restaurant of this caliber. We would have had dessert and another drink but just didn't feel like waiting longer.

Ambiance is comfortable luxury.
The food was delicious and prices reflect. You do get a generous portion of everything and I ended up with several boxes of leftovers.
Service is excellent and servers are well versed with the content of the menu for answering any questions.

My husband (of 22 years) and I went there for a breakfast date. The experience was magnificent and we plan to go back to try the brunch and dinner soon. This will be a place that we’ll visit often.

It was a truly lovely experience. It was my birthday and my two year old niece helped me celebrate. The kitchen was a little behind and she became restless. The wait staff brought out a togo container and a napkin as a bed for her stuff dog that tagged along. It was adorable and I love how they made my niece feel special as well.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday. We had champagne and ousters to start our meal. Champagne was a nice accompaniment to the oyster that were nice bite size and tasty. Kevin, our server, offered to take our picture He took a couple to make sure we had enough to select the "best one". Dinner was very good and before we left we were surprised by a Birthday Cake with a candle for my wife. The plate was scripted with "Happy Birthday". Our regret is that we didn't take a picture of the cake before the candle was blown out and the cake eaten. Overall very nice evening. Would recommend to anyone that would enjoy good service, good food and friendly atmosphere.

Our second visit to Stirrups was not as good as the first visit one week earlier. In fairness it was Jan 1 but there seemed to be more servers than our initial visit although more servers does not guarantee success. Our initial order of one coffee, one cappuccino and the bakery basket was delivered in piecemeal over 30 minutes. When you serve coffee does it make sense to bring the cream originally requested when placing the order? Instead we waited 10 minutes while the coffee cooled. We waited while the server cleared another table and replaced the table cloth and silverware. Lastly the bakery basket appeared after numerous follow up requests minutes before the entrees which disrupted the cadence. Finally we will admit that servers were trying but clearly off their game. Lastly we were seated at the table furtherest from the kitchen. By the time the food arrives the food has cooled off. Covering the dishes would be preferred!

Best eggs benedict ever, whether it's the regular or the southern crab (yum!). My husband did miss the huevos rancheros that are no longer on the menu.

If I could give 10 stars I would. The evening was outstanding. The food, the service and the ambiance were out of this world. This is an evening we won't forget. Our waiter AJ and her assistant Alexis were great. Food and wine were delivered in a timely manner. We were checked on to make sure everything was good. It was wonderful. This wasn't our first time here and it won't be our last. We will make this an annual affair.
Fantastic five course New Year's Eve Dinner at Stirrups. Chef Ryker Brown orchestrated the pairing of wine with each course perfectly and his citrus dessert was amazing. The staff serving the food, as always, were spot on; thank you Jeremy, Jen, AJ and Alexis for the great care.

Stirrups was a great choice for our anniversary dinner. The staff was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable about the wines, and helped us select a great choice for our entries. As for the food , the menu had some unique options and our selections were also excellent in the prep and taste. We also had a nice dessert and stirrups was nice to give us an extra Anniversary plate. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We were seated promptly when we arrived. However, we were three adults and there were only two high back chairs at the table. The other chair was lower and without arms. Our cocktails were good but the delay to receive them seemed excessive. No mention was ever made about our reason to be dining there. I informed the server that I am lactose intolerant. We placed our orders…I asked for a hearts of romain salad. The server brought a bowl of romain lettuce and a side of balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I informed the dining room manager that I was very disappointed and she asked “Well, what did you want on it?” I expected the chef to embellish and create a salad I could enjoy-not just a bowl of lettuce! The other diner enjoyed her wedge salad. All of our entrees and sides were delicious but took too long to arrive. Our server did not check back with us often enough. Since we felt the service/attention to be so bad, we did not order more. Our check was presented and again, we waited a long time to get the bill settled. The manager came to our table again apologizing and did not charge us for our drinks. Overall, we were at the restaurant for more than two hours because of what we felt to be very poor service.
