    Underwhelming. Service was lackluster. Entrees sat under the heat lamp too long; hollandaise broken and overcooked. No coffee refill offered. No peppermill offered. Cappuccino was flat by the time it arrived. French Country Salad of Lyon was all romaine lettuce ~ no little gem or frisee.

    Sunday Brunch was lovely...we enjoyed it so much that we returned for coffee and dessert that evening! While the food was wonderful, the staff we encountered made our visit to the Statler memorable. We are looking forward to our next meal there.

    Everything was great from start to finish. Andrew was our server and he was knowledgeable and attentive. Two different managers checked in on us during our meal. Place is very clean. All the attention to detail you expect from this type of establishment. Steak tartare was excellent. Lobster stew was one of my favorite soups I've ever had. Entrees both fantastic as well. I used to manage a restaurant and this place checks off every box I'm looking for. We will be back for our next special occasion.

    Very nice ambience and our server was lovely! For the price of the dishes, we thought the food should have been outstanding which it wasn't. The food was definitely good but the taste and presentation did not reflect the prices. I would not recommend it to someone for this reason.

    Service was very good. Food was not bad but nothing amazing honestly. The mussels and short rib were good. The bread at the table was rock hard and the chocolate dessert was not good at all unfortunately. Also, we were the only diners there by 9pm which kinda kills the mood because all the wait staff was just cleaning around the restaurant so we just hear the noise from that which doesn’t make for a nice atmosphere. By 9.30, it felt like everyone was waiting for us to leave so we did. Nice place and service, but nothing special about food and ambience.

    Wasn’t offered bread but other tables had it. Was willing to pay for it. Can’t get French bread at a French place? Service was really slow even though the place wasn’t half full. Was sat near the cold door even though there were booths open the whole time. A worker was crying in the bathroom.

    With fine dining prices, we expected a fine dining experience. The food was fine, but not spectacular. We were seated by a window where we could feel a distinct breeze coming in - it was 24 degrees outside. We asked if we could switch tables but were told no. So we had to wear our coats during dinner. Overall the service was not bad, but our server forgot about a drink I ordered. And I had to ask for our water to be filled. It certainly wasn’t a terrible experience, but I did expect more with how the Statler presents itself.

    Fantastic experience from hello to goodnight! Ambiance was great - room was not too loud and music was lively and set the scene well. Food was incredibly well prepared and presented - we had short rib and lamb porterhouse…decided to add scallops to our meals which was star of the show! (Definitely pricey $$$ but worth it in my opinion). Desserts were good too!

    Pretty place with small lamps on the tables. like a Brasserie. Wasn’t very crowded when we were there so noise was manageable. underground parking is available with an elevator up to the restaurant back hallway with historic photos. Probably can accommodate larger parties of diners. The bread service was warm and delicious. I’ve read that if the bread service in a restaurant is uninspired, don’t expect much more from the meal! The food here was good-. Great salad with an egg on top- could have been my meal. ok mussels. Fish soup was too thick and not soup-like. The short ribs were delicious.

    The food was okay, service was slow. Appetizers were brought out with entrees. It was not busy. I asked the server how many pieces of shrimp were per order or was it priced per piece, she did not know and brought 4.. She could have asked. Wait time for beverages was exceptionally slow. Chicken and waffles were not great. Pastries were overdone. I will try it again another time, maybe just a bad day.

    This is my fifth time dining at the Statler and I continue to believe it is an excellent choice for dining downtown. It offers an authentic bistro atmosphere with just the right balance of elegance and approachability. The weight staff continues to be engaging. The food and wine quality is very good. Parking in the garage beneath the building is a good, safe and convenient value especially on the weekends when street parking is impossible. Our waiter Dominick went over and above to make the dining experience enjoyable.
