    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!

    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.

    Manager introduced himself by name and sat us personally. That set the tone for a great evening with amazing food and stellar service. This is a beautiful restaurant with old world vibes and a level of professionalism in the staff that is hard to find these days. Great experience I would go back for sure.

    Service and food were great! We had the shrimp Dijon, eggs and caviar, duck confit leg, lobster bisque, and the lamb so good! The manager checked in our table a few times, their sommelier provided great suggestions, and the staff seemed to treat one another with kindness. We will be back!

    When my husband was drinking white wine out of his glass after a few sips he realized that the glass was not clean and he asked our waitress to get him a fresh glass when she brought it back the glass was half empty and when he questioned it she said well you already had some of that to drink. That is so chintzy we couldn’t believe they actually did that.

    Beef tartare was not up to par. The meat had a stale taste and a slightly gray color. It wasn’t a vibrant red like most beef or steak tartare. It was bland and something just didn’t taste right.

    We went to Statler for my boyfriends birthday dinner. Staff was excellent and very professional. The food though was not. We started the night with escargot and lamb meatballs, they were so bad we decided not to stay for our main course. For the high prices and high ratings we had high expectations, so when we tried the food we were really disappointed.

    I’ll start by saying everyone around us looked to have solid service but for some reason, two different servers came to our table and the one in our section ended up not taking care of us. We had someone who was mostly on the other side of the restaurant and barely ever stopped by. The food was just OK which was very disappointing. The steak tartare came out with an egg that was completely cooked through and the meat was a little chunky for my taste. my wife’s bouillabaisse was very good but my scallops were gritty and bland. They were also served with tasteless mashed potatoes which made zero sense to me. The pairings just didn’t seem right in almost every dish.
