OpenTable Diner (Naples)
1.0  Dined on April 18, 2017

My wife and I, with another couple, paid $39.99 per person for Easter Brunch on 04.16.17. While the service was somewhat adequate, the quality of the offerings was extremely poor and limited for what we were paying. We half-expected custom omelets, eggs Benedict, salmon locks, a variety of breads, cheeses and meats. Instead, we got scrambled eggs, shriveled breakfast sausage, greasy bacon, roasted baby potatoes, vegetables and some fruit and salad. The carved prime rib was substandard and the ham was overcooked. Desert looked like it was bought in bulk at Costco's except for the canoli which were filled basically with a mix of sugar, flour and corn starch. When asked what beverages were being served we were told that they had endless mimosa or bloody Marys. W e opted for mimosa but it was made from concentrated orange juice with barely a note of cheap sparkling wine, plus we only found out afterwards that it was extra ($12 per person). Our bill added up to almost $140 per couple for what we could have had at a local diner for under $30 per couple. A total rip-off as far as we were concerned. Certainly not up to standards or expectations for a restaurant that hangs onto a great name for respectability but falls far short of its branding. We will never go there for a special meal again.

Our first time and not impressed. I didn't expect lunch for 3 ladies to be in an area of the bar where men were playing cards right next to us. The table was far too large for 3 (half circle leather backed booth type). One of the worst Bloody Marys I ever had and very small. Atmosphere was somewhat dark and dull. Did not feel like a Florida country club at all.
Service was average and so was the food (although large portions). Waitress was very patient as we were talking quite a bit (had not seen one another for over a year) and not ready to order.
While we were still eating, though, and no one nearly finished, she asked us if we were ready for dessert! No...not ready at all....

Not a special lunch as we had hoped for. Disappointed . Might give it a second chance but in no hurry to do so when there are so many other choices for lunch .

Food was ok, maybe a little overdone. Server Jess was awesome - fast and great attitude. Disappointed that the website shows specials that they no longer have. In fact, we picked The Edison because of the daily special.

We probably would go back

Food and service were excellent. They had a live band on a Friday night, which was good, but overly noisy and difficult to hold a conversation with someone sitting right next to you.

Valentine's Day fixed menu. They weren't all that busy but were running behind from the start and mentioned as much. Went to the bar for a drink which was nice. Once we were seated, the waiter told us of the limited fixed menu they were out of the seafood option, Brussels sprouts and asparagus. We ordered the last of the steak options and the duck. Steak was awful, over cooked and just not a high quality filet. Next came dessert, they're out of the chocolate option on Valentine's Day, not sure how they order here. You would think that most people would want that but we got blood orange cake that was mediocre. Disappointing meal for Valentine's Day, we won't be back.

Made our reservation thru open table. Had no idea it was a fixed menu for Valentine's Day. Not really a problem so we got our soup which was very good. Next course was a choice of 2 salads. We each ordered a different salad but we were brought 2 of the same,,,no big deal. There was a choice of 3 entrees. We chose 2 different ones. We were brought one correctly and one incorrectly. Not ok. Sent it back and waited 27 minutes for the right entree. Ruined the point of eating together. Couldn't get water or bread. Food tasted good. We left before desert even though it was included.
Manager was very apologetic and we will remember this Valentine's Day! Well go back but hoping there is more and better wait staff.

Valentine menu was great, reasonably priced, actually a surprise. Duck was great, very tender, good sauce, could crisp it up.
Soup needed to be served hot, it was barely warm. Dessert was yummy.
