                                      Our order was messed up several times and we could barely hear each other over the music. Place also smelled kinda weird. Not impressed…

                                      We've dined at the Majestic a few times previously, but man did they have a bad night on 5/13. First of all, the place is too tightly packed. We were (unpleasantly) sat at the first table in the middle row--despite having a reservation. Servers literally could not pass us by without bumping into us. Service was rough too. Jose presented a Pilsner to one guest who ordered a Porter, only to follow that up with serving a burger to a guest who ordered a steak...which is weird cause he made a big show of presenting her with a steak knife not ten minutes before. To be fair, we pretty much had to shout our orders at him because it was so loud inside the restaurant. Between being jostled by wait staff, presented incorrect orders, and having to shout our conversations, we won't be bringing out-of-town guests to The Majestic again.

                                      Hands down our favorite restaurant in Old Town. Great food, authentic old school (been there for 'a million years', super service in an elegant yet very comfortable dining room. Right on King St so handy spot for lunch or a special dinner. Wonderful and have been here many many times. Can't miss w Majestic.

                                      Kind of a weird experience tbh. Our server was mumbling thru his mask, and already had a thick accent on top of that, so communication between us was difficult and we didn’t get two items we initially ordered for appetizers. Not sure what happened there, but they never even got rung up so we didn’t get initially charged anyway. We were sitting under a speaker so the music was a bit loud, too. I enjoyed the old skool jazz bar feeling, the food was good, but because of our server we may not go back, ad it kind of dampened our spirits, which even those took a bit of a long time to get, too.

                                      Restaurant service and food was outstanding. Music volume was too high for a day like mothers day. Could barely hold a conversation.

                                      Went here for our anniversary, it was nice but not outstanding. Cool ambiance but our waiter was just OK, didn't tell us about specials, and the food was very good but not amazing. We'll go back, but maybe not for our anniversary. Would be a great place to go for cocktails though.

                                      Out to celebrate my birthday. The shrimp seemed boiled on my appetizer. and the mussels and sauce were not tasty. I was unimpressed with the cuisine especially with the prices. I am willing to spend good money for a good meal, but I was sorely disappointed.

                                      They advertise $40 LaMarca Prosecco ($15/bottle) brunch drinks and gave us Wycliff ($5 bottle). They offered no explanation for the discrepancy or discount for misleading. The server was only friendly when it was time to close out. The short rib omelette had about 3 tablespoons of pimiento cheese which madre the omelette almost inedible. The charcuterie plate had 4 small wedges of cheese, pickled cauliflower and carrots, two decent triangles of meat and two triangles of cinnamon raisin meat. Def not enough to share with three people. Would not recommend especially if you’re used to variety of cheese. Espresso martinis were good, winter green salad looked good, as did the salmon Benedict. The biscuit was dry but the chicken was tasty. May only come back for happy hour but definitely didn’t care for brunch.

                                      Even though I had a reservation, I still had to wait 30 minutes to get a table outside. But, the food and service was top-notch!! I would easily travel on the metro an hour each way just to eat here again!

                                      Went here on a Saturday night, 9 pm Reservation. It was a lively, mature crowd. Soft lightning, nice decor. The service was excellent, our server was very attentive and professional. The food was pretty good. Nicely presented, hot, well seasoned and the menu had a good amount of variety. I'd go back to do dinner again or try the brunch.

                                      Seating can be tight. Request a booth, dont sit at the table in front of the kitchen. Best pork chop ever. Tender, juicy and full of flavor.

                                      Our server, Hugo, was wonderful, and everything we ordered was delicious. We also originally planned our reservation for four people plus a baby, but because the baby was fussy, we ended up just being three. The restaurant was very understanding and accommodating.

                                      We love the majestic! We come every week to 10 days. This was not typical- our food took forever and was cold.

                                      The service is amazing here. Felt welcome and cared for the entire time, from when we checked in to when we sat outside and connected with the waiter. The food was delicious, though a little pricey with a $24 charcuterie plate. We enjoyed sitting on their outdoor patio on the street, which had nice heaters and shrubbery to conceal the cars. The waiter was so accommodating, knowing it was Ramadan and that I couldn't eat pork without having to explain it.
