Contemporary American
The Majestic is all new, with Executive Chef Ulysses Cabahug 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.

Our server was great, and the cauliflower appetizer and tuna poke salad were delicious. However, the burger was a huge fail. It was raw inside. Not just undercooked, but raw and cold inside. The fries were soggy and cold. The server was gracious and took it off our bill.

I have been to the Majestic three times, and it has been uneven. Once the food was great, but two recent trips, including dinner two nights ago, have been mediocre at best. The waiter was generally inattentive, the food—prime rib In my case—was underdone, tasteless and tough, and it was served cold. This is not what you should expect to be served at any restaurant, much less at one aspiring to be worthy of the Old Town prices they charge. If you are looking for a good meal in a comfortable setting in Old Town, look elsewhere.

Always one of first or second choices for a casual “date”. Food is good and coconut cake our draw, with a good reasonably priced wine list. Prefer a little more quiet but understand when full house, most often the case. Hugo, our server, made our evening more enjoyable with his sense of humor, attentiveness, and recommendations.

We were very disappointed by our dining experience. The restaurant is beyond lively to the point where it is so loud you cannot have a conversation with your friends or family. The menu was limited and they were out of the steak frites without any suitable alternative. Our waiter was not very attentive and at best our food was mediocre. We will not rush back anytime soon.
