Easter brunch was very overpriced. The food was good, but the atmosphere was mediocre at best. Very loud. For a $50 buffet you should at the very least include a complimentary mimosa. I’ll be choosing a sit down dinner over this overpriced buffet in the future.

Came for Easter brunch and they had a very nice selection of food for the occasion. Service was excellent for such a busy day and I thought, considering the day, prices where reasonable for alcoholic drinks.

Went with family for Easter Brunch. Could use more variety of foods for $50 pp. The place was packed. It is clean and orderly but really not much ambiance. Also always seems unfair to leave a 20% tip for a buffet where we had to search for a server for a fork and a drink. The drinks (all non alcohol) were also very watered down and for the price should all be included.

The Clubhouse's brunch keeps getting better & better. It was so close to 5 stars, I wish I could have given it 4.5 - 4.7 instead of 4. They were very busy on Sunday, but one would never know it by the consistency of finished plates being taken away, coffee and water being refilled. The seafood was excellent, the side dishes unique and tasty, the salads fresh (especially Caesar), the salmon delicious, the chicken parmesan was very good, the past with vodka sauce very good, the pesto potatoes, very good. The traditional breakfast items were very good. Variety was fantastic. The only changes I would suggest is the heavy-handed use of salt. In the prime rib (which was a bit fatty) and the turkey, the salt content was overpowering. Cold bagels are fine, but the addition of a toaster or perhaps hot bagels/toasted bagels would be a nice touch, especially since the lox is of a great quality and tasty. Desserts are the weakest point, yet still good enough to eat, since they look fabulous, yet are just good, yet not fantastic.

Out server was new to the restaurant but she was wonderful. The meal was tasty and timely. The only issue was the dessert. My husband asked that his peach tart be browned on the top. They delivered it burnt. It was dark in our section but he could literally taste the burnt edges of the crust. The server addressed the issue with the manager (who we could literally see posted outside of the kitchen reviewing the plates as they came out. I only mention this because he should have noticed it but then he also appeared to brush the server off when she spoke to him and he certainly didn’t come over to us. All of that said. We love this place and will definitely be back.

Food was very good, but the service from Jim was note-worthy.

Ordered calamari and ahi tuna for appetizers, both were good. Ordered Chilean sea bass, chicken romana and the penne with shrimp. Never given bread, refills were spotty, entrees were ok, the shrimp was undercooked. Key lime pie was average. Really loud with a DJ in the bar, couldn't hear anyone at the table. This was overall a miss, poor service, mediocre food and really expensive. Skip this place and go to Seasons 52.

The first floor was very energetic and lively. Went went upstairs for our reservation for dinner where it was quieter and less than half full. It was just two of us and they sat us at a table for two in a row of other tables of two. We were so close to the people on both sides of us that is was uncomfortable. It was strange to sit us here as so much of the restaurant was open. We were going to ask for another table but we just decided to leave after about five minutes.

The Clubhouse is one of my favorite restaurants and this visit was no exception. The evening was flawless, from the quality of the food, the atmosphere and the service. In particular, I would like to note that our server asked if I was a member (something I forgot) and checked the records to see that I was eligible for a $50.00 credit for my birthday month. What a treat!

I frequent The Clubhouse because it's near my office and appropriate for business lunches. However, my experience this time was not consistent with previous, primarily because the service was slow and inattentive. The server would disappear for extended periods, didn't refill waters, just 101 stuff that shouldn't happen at a restaurant like The Clubhouse.

I love this place. However was very disappointed when the hostess took us to a tiny table right next to the kitchen. I declined that table and then was offered a high top table in the bar. I expressed my displeasure and noted that I expected better having made our reservation days earlier through Open Table. We then were told we would have to wait if we wanted a better table as to quote the hostess, “well it’s Saturday night”. That’s the whole reason we make reservations!! The original tables offered would have been acceptable if we were walk ins. We have dined here for years as we always enjoy the food but I was unhappy the way we were treated and think management should have offered some accommodation for making us wait.

i love the fact that they had the table set up fir my baby girl with a table and some snacks to eat. while she only has milk fir now it was nice touch. I was greeted as we walk in very nicely by the manager.. i think he had a head set. I did not give 5 starts for service bcz the girl host was quiet intense that i should check my stroller with out even asking if that was ok whit me and more whit my baby girl, whom was sleeping. The manager did an amazing job by stepping in and saying that not to worry there was enough room and knew that we will not want to wake up a baby! . So great job manager in duty and opportunity for Sunday host , take it down a notch, when communicating.
