We were celebrating our wedding anniversary with dinner at The Majestic (and our first dinner out in over a year), one of our favorite restaurants in Old Town. Chef Nicholas and the entire staff made it a wonderful night. Delicious food, unique cocktails and an attentive and friendly server and staff. The ricotta dumplings alone were worth the visit!

This was our first time back since the pandemic. We had the sea bass, which was the best dish I've had at the Majestic, and their burger, which is always excellent.

We had brunch outside, which was lovely despite the close proximity to the street traffic. Brunch was excellent with the exception of the monkey bread appetizer, which was dry. The avocado toast with crab and crab eggs benedict were awesome!

I don't have anything to be negative about regarding food or service. We went for Brunch.
Only suggestion is that I'd add white table clothes to up-scale the ambiance.

My boyfriend and I came here for a first date, over a year ago. We have continued to come back for our anniversary and date night. We adore the staff, and they make us feel like regulars! Their cocktail menu is exceptional and the BURGER IS TO DIE FOR; it’s why we come! I must try when you are in the area!

Food was ok. Steak with mushrooms and potatoes was too salty. Mussels were good. Big crowd on a Saturday night and clearly they are not used to it. Service was slow and not always attentive to our table. Noisy and difficult to hear. We got spoiled eating in under-crowded restaurants during COVID-19, but glad to see people coming out again.

We went to The Majestic on a recommendation from a friend for our anniversary dinner. It did not disappoint!
Mark, our waiter was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the food, wines, and suggested some terrific bourbon drinks.
We had a great time and Chef Nicholas even prepared a special (specific dairy/soy free dessert) for my wife! It was delicious 💯
The manager was very courteous and made sure our night was great! 😎
Cheers! 🥃

Food was sensational and service was exceptional, we felt like we were family. Chef Nick's flavors, seasoning and presentation were on point and Josh's service was equally as impressive.

This was our first visit to The Majestic but we plan to come back often. In addition to the food and service being exceptional the atmosphere is also perfect.

Could not have been better, thank you Chef Nick, Josh and the entire staff at the Majestic.

Service was nicely paced and not rushed. Meal was very good. Steak and eggs were cooked as ordered; steak temp nicely done. Other dishes were French toast and salad. Both prepared well.

Fingerling potatoes are delicious. Monkey bread is a pass. It’s basically yeast rolls sprinkled with powdered sugar and a few candied pecans. The caramel sauce was only on the bottom of the plate. True monkey bread would have had all the ingredients intertwined. Also, they serve coffee with no cream, only milk. A total bummer.

Service was GREAT and patient. Overall, a decent experience.
