Every piece of food and drink were superb. The staff was friendly. We felt a little out of place the night we went, as the crowd was more over 50 year old sophisticates, intellectuals and business men.

It was my friend’s birthday. They called for a confirmation and asked for the name of the birthday boy to “make sure that they highlight it.” because I put in the reservation that it was a celebration dinner. And we didn’t even get a candle on the dessert that we ordered. It was quite weird that they just ignored it.

Lovely brunch, would have expected a little better service as we waited to get cocktails for quite some time—they said they were missing an ingredient but I would have preferred they suggest an alternative vs. waiting for 20 mins.

The food was great, but portion size a little inconsistent. Some of them were generous and others (apps) were a couple of bites!

Service started out strong, and while everyone was nice, dishes were not cleared in a timely way (or the bussers were too aggressive, even trying to take away my plate as I was still eating!) and the longer we were there, the slower our server was to attend to us.

Overall, it is a great environment with interesting decor and an appetizing menu, but I would have expected a little more from a restaurant of this caliber.

The food was sublime; the atmosphere a kind of vintage NYC - dark and moody. Fantastic when the weather is cold. Service can vary - but mostly very good. Subtle touches made for an amazing birthday dinner for my wife.

The ambiance and decor of Temple Court are top-notch. The food however needs improvement. For the price of each item, I expect more flavor. The Burrata was tasteless and needed more citrus than the flavorless heirloom squash. The Oyster Rockefeller was good. The Monkfish Osso Bucco was interesting but was too salty. The Duck L'orange was better with the crispy skin and balsamic vinegar sauce. I loved the aioli sauce with orange rind.

It was just truly amazing. Steak was totally awesome. Ambience, service and food are just top notch. There is a cake carry in charge (more than 20 dollars) and I was informed about only after we celebrated a member’s birthday with a carry in cake so and that was not so good..but I wasn’t so upset because everything else was perfect

The restaurant and bar ambiance is just what we wanted- beautiful and lively! The place was very busy so service was slow and sloppy in the bar area. We had a reservation for 6 pp at 845 pm and were sat at a very large (too large for conversation) wooden table, minus the table cloth that was on the surrounding tables. Service was ok, slightly miseducated on the menu, but overcame with two amuse Bouche appetizers for the table. Food was mediocre at best. Highly recommend bar and apps, skip the sit down dinner for this price range.

Nice atmosphere in a beautiful hotel. Food is delicious and substitutions were made to orders which is always nice. My only complaint is that the service is quite slow. Some people enjoy that as they want to linger and not be rushed, but I felt a little forgotten about - coffee and dessert were not offered, they just brought our bill, which is a little awkward when dining clients.

Food and service didn’t match up to price. Disappointed. What is with babies and small children dining at 9PM? While the restaurant can’t control that aspect, it killed the dining experience.

We came here for a 'friends reunion' dinner. Service was very cordial although a bit unpracticed (i.e. serving soup but forgetting a spoon, etc.). Food was very good - not over the top amazing but certainly very good. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Often, we had to ask what the wine being poured was or for some details about it. Usually for a pairing the information is given when the wine is poured. If you are far downtown, this is a great spot to hit. We didn't use the bar but it seemed very lively and had a happy vibe.

Had been here for lunch a few times and loved it! Went for dinner on Friday and the service was awful. We actually had to have someone get the waitress so we could order. They tried to take dishes away while one in our party was still eating. The food was average - overpriced for the quality.
Lunch menu is much better!
