Great service awesome food will be back
Food, service and quality for the dollar was excellent. I highly recommend the scallops with a side of brussels sprouts. However, it was the Friday night of the Jekyll Island shrimp and grits Festival and the restaurant was not full. They seated us outside as requested but right next to a surgeon’s cocktail party. It was very loud and distracting. They did have other tables on the other side of the outdoor porch, Not very good dining experience with the noise.
Katie was a great server. She made our experience fantastic! The steaks were delicious and so was the wine. I would highly recommend the Reserve to guests of the Westin and to others not staying there.
Salads were delicious, large and beautifully presented. Veal chop was delicious but there was a significant section that was just fatty. I pointed this out to the waiter who apologized. When he brought the check, it reflected: "10% off-steak too fatty." Appreciated the discount (would have enjoyed a comp desert more) but I thought that reference to the meat was really odd. Cocktails were wonderful. Would go back despite the one issue noted.
Best steak ever!! Great service!
The food was under cooked and the steak was tough. The server was great, but it took the food forever to come from the kitchen. I would not recommend this restaurant.
I have rate at The Reserve on numerous occasions and it never disappoints! The food is always fabulous!!
The service and food were excellent. The value was exceptional, we are from Chocago and if we would have had this meal there it would have been three times the price.
Steak really had no flavor, asparagus was a little to crispy, and was bland tasting could have been a little more cooked. Brought wine glass out with lipstick on it. Had to request a new glass. Only decent food taste wise was the sweet potato. Great atmosphere, nice view. But not enough to out weigh the pricing of the food and the taste. When charging the cost for the food it should deliver to the pallet. We would not return to eat, only to have drinks provided the glassware was clean....
Reserve was absolutely wonderful; they had an excellent scotch selection and a bar manager who knew what she was talking about. We had a ball enjoying terrific steaks, wonderful seafood, and a very good meal. The service was impeccable and the view magnificent. Kudos to the Westin Jekyll Island for this terrific restaurant.
A Steak House should, at the least, be able to cook steaks! My “ very rare” steak came out medium well. My husband’s medium rare was well done . The table next to us had the same problem. Sides were OK - nothing special. A very, very disappointing meal.
Our daughters 13th Birthday!
The Reserve at the Westin Jekyll Island was a high end Steak House. Service was very efficient, friendly staff. The menu is not the most extensive, but most would be happy with the selections available. They had a prime rib special which was quite overwhelming in size. The porterhouse was supposed to be 20oz and seemed less than that. The steak and prime rib were excessively peppered. I am a fan of using a salt and pepper blend coating the meat, but here pepper appeared to be the overpowering spice. We ordered the lobster mac&cheese as a side. Expensive, with little to no lobster meat present and here too an excessive use of pepper.
We probably will not be returning to Jekyll Island anytime soon. However, if we do, I would not be rushing to go to the Reserve for dinner.
The service here was great. The food was not the best for how much they charge for it. The veil came out a little over cooked. The sides came out warm and not hot. The desserts that are flagged “made in house” are not. We had the cheesecake and the pecan pie. The pecan pie tasted and looked just like the one from Waffle House.
Brian in the bar and Cody, our waiter were outstanding! My husband is still talking about the food experience as well!!
Prime rib was excellent. Everyone loved their dish. Great service as well.
Jason was great!
One of the best filets i have ever gotten in a restaurant. The view was amazing. The whole experience was great.
Beautiful setting and views! Food was ok, scallops weren't cooked great, but flavor was good. Desert was great.
What a fantastic restaurant on the beach! Beautiful view. Fantastic meal.
If you are looking for a great steak on Jekyll Island you just found it. Share your sides we ordered too much. Ask for a window view or you can eat outside. The service was great and the food was the best steak I had in awhile.
Our Meal was fabulous! The service was impeccable!
Wait staff was exceptional!!
Overall experience was great. Steak was a little overdone. Wait staff was truly exceptional. We ate outside on the terrace and were able to enjoy the view along with the wonderful Jekyll Island weather!
Wonderful waitress! ( I think her name was Angela or Amanda...she was a y’all, thin blonde.) she was very attentive. The food was awesome! We both had the prime filet, and we have never had a filet this delicious. We love The Reserve. This was our 2nd visit & we definitely will return!
Lovely view, good service, great cocktails, but steaks were not that great for the price.
We went there for a Birthday dinner. I ordered steak and lobster for $52.00 plus drinks. Our drinks didn’t come for 20 minutes and the lobster was at most a 2oz. burnt and cold. I was suppose to get sweet potato soufflé, it was plain sweet potato in a bowl with brown sugar thrown on top! The manager came and took the lobster and drinks off the bill. My birthday was ruined and we will never go there again! Very disappointed!!
Service was average, expected better for the price and the setting. Calamari was not fresh. Salad was ok. Steaks were great. Cocktails were good.
Visit the reserve every time we visit Jekyll Island and we love it best place on the island
Prices are high due to being a hotel restaurant but the food is excellent and so is the staff. Went back a second time during the week for drinks and appetizers. Will be on the must list for the next trip to the island. Also, patio space is dog friendly. Watch the waves with your pups, drinks and food. Can't get better than that!
My wife and I went to The Reserve Steak House for the first time for her Mother's Day special dinner. Our server, Elizabeth, was very attentive and had a great personality. The menu prices were higher than we were used to, but the portions were generous and the food was exceptional and excellently prepared. We will certainly go back for special occasions.
We completely loved our experience. I noted in our reservation that we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and as soon as our server came over, she wished us a happy anniversary. The meal was beyond amazingly delicious. After dinner our server asked if we wanted her to take our photo, she even took us outside to do so. We loved everything about our meal.
It started on a bad note. Business meeting for 6 and made reservations well in advance with specific detail about menu as budget constraints. Made reservations early in the evening so those who wanted to choose the really fab early value menu could do so. Hostess when seating us said it is not available to such a large party and I am certain I would hVe told you. I was very specific when asking questions when I booked.
Well the waiter recovered for her and got us exactly what we were expecting. Some ordered off the early menu and some colleagues ordered from regular menu.
We ordered several appetizers and each one was wonderful. Wine selection very good. All the meals were excellent and raved about. This is our 4th time at this restaurant and the food is worth coming back every time.
Much of the food was uninspired, tasteless. Service was absent.
Absolutely delicious! Started with fried shrimp appetizer— the breading light and delicate and the beer I’ve ever had. The steak and lobster was out of this world! Food is worth the expense, but we definitely could’ve shared a meal—large portions for women. Perhaps perfect for a man. Service was smooth and polite. Excellent dining experience!
Group of 4. Filets ordered medium rare were actually medium to well. They were dry for “prime”...would have thought choice cuts
Service was somewhat sloppy. Too quick to have us order after cocktails served.
When serving, reaching across people to present food/drinks instead of coming around to individuals
Had New York strip medium rare and they got it right. Wife had filet medium rare, they got it right. Three berry cheese cake was good. Had coffee and one glass of wine. Expect to pay, but it's worth it for a quiet restaurant where people dress decently and don't smell funny at the beach! Good show. We will be back one day.
Our server was delightful. Very attentive and personable. We wanted and waited for nothing. Our food was delicious. We were a party of 7. Two loved the Shrimp and Grits with the perfect amount of heat. One had the pork chop, another the trout, salmon and a steak. Everyone said their meal was cooked to perfection. The Brussel Sprout side was also well done.
If there was anything that didn't measure up it was the desserts. The creme brulee was cold and not the worst I've ever had but close. The chocolate cake was a 2 inch square, one bite each for the couple sharing dessert.
Drinks and selections good.
Vacation first time at Jekyll Island
Outstanding food from bread to dessert. Service was wonderful!
