We try to eat here every time we're in Lansing to visit our Grandson in college.
Everyone likes it. Plus great parking and convenience.
It was great. We would definitely have lunch there again and highly recommend it.
Had dinner and breakfast there and enjoyed both meals. Wait staff was wonderful and attentive. Our son was celebrating his birthday and they brought out a slice of cake with a candle- nice touch.
Food was very good.
I would have rating this place higher except for a couple of issues. First, they brought me the wrong entree and then asked me if I was joking about my order. So I watched my table eat their food while I waited for mine and I didn’t get an apology. Second, the was a very loud table seated right next to us. We would have enjoyed it better if people weren’t seated so close together
I made a reservation for myself and two family members for an early lunch. After waiting at the reception desk for several minutes, I went into the restaurant to find someone to seat us. Our waiter Bradley was very good. The tandoori-style chicken was bland. The Caesar salad was drenched in dressing. Window seating is great, restaurant is very attractive.
The food was amazing. We ordered steak, salads, deserts and every dish was prepared to perfection. I will come back soon!
A great place to have private business dinner meeting. Outstanding food service and wine list.
We were kind of bummed as the menu changed since the last time visiting and a few of our favorites were gone. Service was OK, delivery of beverages and food seemed to take a long time. Before we visit again we will visit the online menu.
Great service and food. Server was fantastic - very knowledgeable about menu. Will definitely go back!
if the sign for the restaurant wasn’t outside, you would think you entered the wrong building for the restaurant. It’s kind of a nondescript, dim, low ceiling lobby. We walked forward down the hall until some students working behind a counter directed us around the corner to the restaurant. Upon entering, it had a bit of a dated feel in a supper club/lounge kind of way. The dining room is a kind of smallish (intimate?) but once we were seated and tuned out the conversation of the table next to us, we enjoyed our time there. We don’t recommend the margaritas, but they had a decent choice of wine/beer. The main event in a restaurant is always the food, and they didn’t disappoint. Great food. After all, that’s why you’re there, right? 4 out of 5.
Professional, efficient, attentive service.
Perfectly cooked scallops! Perfectly cooked salmon! Perfect manicotti and perfect airline chicken! But, the pork tenderloin appetizer disappointing; tough and tasteless.
A bit pricey overall for everyday but perfect for a special occasion.
Nice wine offerings but they do not carry a chianti.
Server was excellent. Grouper entree was lacked flavor and disappointing
The State Room is a gem. No up-scale restaurant has finer foods, better service and lower prices for thre quality. Easy parking. The State Room ranks up there with the best restaurants in town, without the snooty attitudes and high prices. It is a favorite whenever we are in town.
After our son graduated from MSU, we forgot about thre place. We got reacquainted recently and now beat ourselves uo for not remembering to keep going there!
The State Room is reliably an excellent restaurant, great spot for conducting business, and consistent in its attentive service. It is a blessing in my neighborhood and in the Lansing/East Lansing area.
Every time I travel to East Lansing I entertain clients here. The food, service and atmosphere are always on point. It's obvious a lot of local frequent here and I can see why. I highly recommend The State Room for any occasion. They also feature locally-souced food and have a great wine selection.
We had a wonderful Mother’s Day dinner!
The State Room has always been a favorite. The special Sunday brunches are the best. The atmosphere is accommodating of couples as well as groups. The wine list is excellent as are seasonal dishes.
Always a pleasure! My steak was cooked perfectly and I'm fussy...somewhere between rare and medium rare. They had paired it with a wonderful California cab. Ingredients are locally sourced and, while I don't usually have bread with a meal, the herbed butters are a treat!
For years the State Room has been a go-to spot. It only gets better and better. From the astute wait staff to the magnificent food choices, it is superior. Add to that the carefully-chosen wine list, and well-crafted cocktails, and you have a real winner.
wonderful service and great prices for a lunch . We had salads and soups on graduation day.
My family and I had a wonderful time! I'll go back if I'm ever in the neighborhood again.
I went to the State Room for my birthday. Everything was great: the food, the service, the ambience. I certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to have an upscale meal in the East Lansing area.
Great dinner and you'll also enjoy the Sunday brunch. If the MSU Dairy Store line is too long you can get their ice cream here.
Excellent food- had the salmon. Spinach salad and bread was also very good.
I don’t really want to tell everyone because it’ll fill up faster but I guess it’s the deal! What a gem! Fabulous service and menu with a comprehensive wine and beer selection. Complimentary parking in the attached structure and great ambience! Eat here!
We've eaten here twice, both times traveling thru the area. Our experiences both times were excellent. Very comfortable space, excellent menu and service all at a reasonable price.
I Did not know what to expect, because I have never eaten at a restaurant up in Lansing. I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone was very attentive and where we were seated, in front of all of the reds that were on display, was a very nice compliment to the meal. The only challenge was towards the end of the meal catching the waiters attention so we could pay the bill.
The State Room never disappoints! The service was friendly and timely, our meals fulfilling and dessert was just a lot of mmmmmmmm sounds! Thanks for raising the level of enjoyment for a 65th birthday!
nice location and menu options. Food was good, but not exceptional. A little bland for high end dining. Very happy to have some good vegan options, nice wine menu, and special cocktails. Servers were all helpful, polite and attentive. The exception was a manager that talked loudly across the dining area at his wait staff. (Not appropriate, sir.) Otherwise a nice evening.
An excellent dining experience. Quality crafted food and wine, with great service. The dining room is always sparkling and comfortable for any casual or business attire. Schedule your next meal here and you won’t be disappointed.
It is wonderful place to take business guests and know you will have a great dining experience in a conducive atmosphere.
We dined at the State Room prior to a basketball game. The atmosphere was quite lively, crowded, and fun. The servers were on the run! And, everyone was happy.
For the second time now we decided to celebrate a special occasion at the State Room. While the venue is great the food was again very disappointing. The Salmon was tasteless, the Tofu had no flavor and the steak was mediocore at best. Appetizers and dairy store ice cream were the highlights of the meal. High price and low flavor twice in a row. We will be crossing this one off of our list.
The State Room was a great restaurant! The food was wonderful, the service was great and the ambiance was lovely. I would recommend it to everyone and will definitely be returning.
Had the scallop dinner. I wasn’t crazy about the sauce. My daughter really enjoyed her Vegan selection however. Service was very good. Price was OK
The food was wonderful. The presentation was magnificent. Thank you for giving us an experience we shall always treasure.
We reserved a table for a mid-week dinner prior to a show at the Wharton Center and were very pleased with our meal. A craft cocktail was too ambitious, and when I told our waiter that I didn't like it and could I please exchange it for another, plainer drink, he was most obliging. On his recommendation, my husband tried a new fish entree and said it was delicious, my trout was wonderful, and the asparagus served with it was cooked perfectly! Parking in the attached structure was very convenient. This is our go to spot in East Lansing!
Enjoyed the whole affair.
always good food and service here. also nice ambience and not as noisy as many restaurants. Had to pay for parking before MSU basketball game though, which I haven't had to do in the past??
Great service and food.
