Contemporary American
The Majestic is all new, with Executive Chef Graham Duncan at the helm, offering diverse, seasonal, and vibrant, protein and vegetable-forward menus for Lunch, Dinner, and weekend Brunch. A contemporary upscale-casual American bistro style selections with ingredient-focused dishes showcasing quality olive oils, herbs, garlic, and other influences. A rotisserie for meats (and even vegetables) adds deep flavor and variety to the restaurants signature dishes.

The newly renovated 85-seat dining room features a comfortable and sophisticated setting of intimate booths, individual tables facing a high back banquette, and inviting contemporary club chairs in the single dining room. Extensive updates were made to the finishes, fixtures, and furnishings, and the newly hand-waxed walls are covered in salon-style collections of art, objects, and interesting images for a dynamic setting.

The worst service we have received in a very long time! Forgotten items and an indifferent attitude when asked about missing items! Tasty food, but can’t get past the awful service we received!

My husband and I go to the Majestic quite often. Hugo was a great waiter and was very helpful. I ordered my usual majestic burger – that I love! But they must have changed the recipe 😞 There was no bacon jam, crispy onions, pimento cheese, horseradish cream on the burger- just a slab of cheese 😳. I was so disappointed! Please bring back the old recipe!!
Thank you!

This was the first time we have been at the Majestic and it was for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a reservation and we were seated timely. The service throughout our entire meal was great. The appetizer they brought out was delicious. My boyfriend had the soup and I had the salad for our first course and it was good. For the main dish he had the prime rib and I had the halibut and they were both delicious. The sides were sweet potato mash and Mac and cheese and they were okay. We both had the pumpkin crepe brûlée for dessert and it was disappointing...the top was extra crunchy and underneath was liquid. I’ve never had one with that consistency before. Maybe their regular menu is better.

We went for Thanksgiving and made a reservation. We were seated 30 min after of reservation time but were given a complimentary drink while we wanted. The food was tasty and good quality. Presentation was great. Our first time visiting and we're considering returning to try their regular menu.

This place was to high-brow for me and my friends.

The food was good but way over-priced. If it wasn't for the manager checking on us, we would never have seen a server.

Probably will look for another Thanksgiving venue next year

Service was horrible. It took forever to get the cocktails we ordered and they gave me the wrong wine with dinner. The food was good but barely warm. The waiter never came by to check on us. I was very disappointed as I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant. The whole experience put a damper on our Thanksgiving meal.

We want to love this restaurant and its fabulous atmosphere. It is walking distance from our home. But the food we’ve had is just ok. On this weeknight visit we both decided to go with something simple: their burger. It was dense and just not very good. My husband’s burger was burnt on one side.

Fabulous service, absolutely lovely staff at every level. Food was good but not great, but cocktails were excellent !
Ambiance really cool! Very exceedingly loud
Almost everyone was talking loudly or yelling with their table mates, just to be heard. Noise made it uncomfortable.

Abby was our waitress & did an excellent job waiting on us for brunch. Her recommendations were spot on. Food was good, service was good& it was a bit loud only b/c someone with a small child refused to go out & calm them down or leave. That wasn’t the restaurant’s fault, just annoying. Will be back, good experience

I went here on a date, and it was an overall a very good experience. We are both foodies and enjoyed our meals. The environment was fascinating, in an eclectically designed diner. The service was awkward. Our waiter asked us (not 30 seconds after we sat down) if we were ready to order, and we asked for more time. 20 minutes later he came back for our orders. It was the same when leaving, where after they took our plates he came back 10 minutes later with a dessert menu. Then when we declined, 10 minutes after that with the check. It was good, just VERY slow.

The entrees were very good. The dessert course was lacking. Rge apple pie seemed straight from the supermarket. Also we were at the restaurant early, and the waitstaff seemed to be having a meeting during our whole meal. Also, we asked for bread and never got it!

On the whole we enjoyed our lunch. My meal was quite good, although I noticed a tomato slice on one of my companion's Salmon BLT that looked horrible. it was 80% white! My friend is elderly and had quite a time trying to cut it up because it was so hard. I wouldn't have even attempted.

The noise level was indeed "lively"—I would say a little too "lively". In fact, in got to the point that we were almost having to shout at one another. Unfortunately, this is a problem with too many restaurants anymore.

I'll be honest. Since we first tried the Majestic a month or two ago, we've been back FOUR times. Even worse, my wife and I have ordered THE EXACT SAME THING. She loves the sea bass. I'm crazy about their burger. Delicious. The restaurant is really cute. Easy to get reservations with Open Table. Staff is fantastic. Easy access in Old Town. This place is a winner.
