    When we arrived, we were asked about reservation which was confirmed. Next, we were shown to our table but never asked if this our first visit and never informed about how or what was expected once seated. Now I understand about the buffet process and love everything. Yes, I plan to return.

    Our family enjoyed a wonderful meal here with our Cadet while admiring the panoramic views of campus. The service was impeccable, and the buffet-style meal was delicious - all freshly prepared by the kitchen and well presented. We found the University Club to be a great value and will plan to return again soon.

    Great place for a special lunch for ring day for us! The food was very good and a lot of care was put into the buffet for presentation. We sat with fellow Aggie students who had never been and the experience was phenomenal! Waitstaff even took photos of us for memories. The views were great from the building overlooking either the corp dorms, the stadium or the Simpson drill field. Desserts were plenty! Good choices.

    The University Club is a very good value. The food quality was quite good. And of course the views are terrific! We will definitely book it again whenever an on-campus dining option is needed.

    Good buffet--loved the salad options. Despite the insular nature of this establishment, they should publish the price of the buffet somewhere in the room. Also could help if they let people know what they menu was in advance (especially for those with food allergies.)

    I took my zip cadet to lunch there after learning about it just a few weeks ago. I had never heard of University Club if you can believe that. I’m so glad for the referral. We had meatloaf and potatoes and glazed carrots and green beans and a fabulous cherry cheesecake. We had a stunning view of the campus in the open air room. It was a very fitting last lunch with my son before he graduates. I loved it so much that I made another reservation for two weeks from Friday for him and his sweetheart. Gig’em and Whoop!

    Our reservation got lost, but the wonderful staff found us a table where we requested. Our only issue, wait staff never came and took our drink order, or refilled our glasses. Finding someone was difficult, so I found the tea picture with clean glasses and helped ourselves. Had the same issue for refills. My tip would have been better, but an empty glass is an issue for me when dining out. Given I had to get our own drinks and refills..... All in all, we love the ambience and the food is amazing. A posted menu would be nice, perhaps something posted in advance so one could select a day based on what is being served. The surprise is nice, but not always wanted. Keep in mind - I have NEVER had a meal that I didn't like or was disappointed in at University Club!!

    I booked a reservation for 1:30 pm. But the restaurant blocks access to the 11th floor at 1:30 pm. If you arrive minute late you cannot get to your reservation. There was no warning about this on the Opentable app. This is why people do a better job at making reservations than apps. This is a stupid app. It saves the restaurant money while costing the customer time which is our money.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! We will work with the building proctors to change the elevator access so this does not happen again. Please email Anna Durand at anna.durand@compass-usa.c om and she will be happy to help you further!
