    I have been to The Admiral several times. Last night the short ribs flavor overall dish was awesome yet my girlfriends chicken was tough and difficult to cut. We left most of it on the place. They were busy and service was scattered. Normally the Admiral is special and you don't have to ask for water.

    The food, the service, and the atmosphere were excellent. I spoke to our waiter and he assured us that The Admiral is taking patron safety very seriously.. Thank you!!!

    I continue to be delighted by the service, ambiance, and (most importantly), the food! The Admiral is a lovely, small venue, where you are treated like a neighbor.

    So sad to say this, but I can’t imagine going back any time soon. The waitstaff did their best but were overwhelmed with the growth of the customer base. Initial drinks took well over a half hour to arrive. Food was slow in coming and delivered to the wrong diner. For example, a waiter who hadn’t taken our orders brought two ribeyes, didn’t know who they were for (delivering one initially to the vegetarian) and couldn’t say which was the medium and which was the medium rare. None of the dishes made any of us say “wow.” The Admiral used to be amazing, and I wish them luck in building up the capacity to take care of the additional customers they’ve taken on.

    The server came over and asked who at our table had an allergy to bell peppers and I indicated it was me. Then they proceeded to bring a dish to the table that had peppers in it and didn’t warn me. Fortunately I asked and found out it indeed was in the dish. My husband ordered sweetbreads and was served rabbit. We had to flag down others servers because ours disappeared until the end of the evening. The food was not as good as it had been in the past. All in all a disappointing meal for a good deal of money.
