The food was ok and the service was excellent. The music was profoundly terrible. If the pianist had refrained from signing and played to his strengths by solely tickling the ivory, it would have been significantly better.

Very enjoyable evening. Nice to go out again! Huge tent. Tables were spaced far apart.
Only allowed about 50 people. Food was good. Prime rib was tasty but could have been
Bigger. No choice of doneness but was fine.
Entertainer was very good. Played a lot of requests. Performance lasted about an
Hour.
They announced that they are moving to the actual Embers restaurant, in the hotel, at the end of May.

This was our third time enjoying the Supper Club at Marriott Lincolnshire. At each event, we were treated with respect and professionalism. The prime rib dinner was always delicious, especially the green beans!! The staff was very courteous and helpful. We usually had "Han" as our server but she wasn't there the last time. Everyone was safely distanced and the piano man played probably every song requested!! He was fun and got us all clapping and singing along to some of the tunes. He was honest when he didn't know all the words but we were thoroughly entertained. We plan to continue attending future Supper Clubs!

This was dinner theatre with a piano player.

Food was mediocre


Piano player was entertaining.

One 1-hour set felt short.

Social distancing was good.

The food was absolutely HORRIBLE! I can not believe that people have wedding receptions there. If I had, I would've asked for my money back. The service was every bit as bad as the food. My girlfriend and I had the Prime Rib and it was microwaved, totally dark brown and impossible to cut. I asked for a replacement for both of ours and was told they are all prepared the same way. I understand that, if they were prepared correctly....which is Medium Rare. I will never be going back to this place for dinner. Neither will my family.

It was a wonderful experience. It was better than expected. The prime rib dinner was very good. Andrew Blenderman was wonderful. He played many of the crowds requests and was very personable. I am glad that Marriott offered the Cabaret series. I makes getting through the pandemic tolerable.

Our Waiter forgot to bring us our dinner. I had to go into the kitchen and search for him to finally get him to serve our table. By the time we got our meals thee rest of the room was finishing up. I have cancelled our plans to go back this Saturday

We attended a dinner/singing pianist concert that was not in the Three Embers. This event was held in a ballroom but only with tables set up for about 30 people. It was pretty sterile and uninviting.... Was expecting it to be held in one of the restaurants.

Entertainment was fine; pianist had a good personality and took requests.

The food was average at best, very thin slice of beef, not medium rare as requested. Everything else was great, including the servers and, most importantly, the entertainment. Andrew Blendermann had the audience eating out of his hand. He is a master performer, and we will make every effort to see him again.

The event was not held at the Three Embers. It was a bait and switch. Instead of the Three Embers we were hosted at a tent facility called Supper Club at Marriott. We won't be back again. Open Table should have foreseen this and let us know we would not be eating at the Three Embers.

Dinner needs to be in a more intimate setting. 15 tables in an enclosed football field sized tent. 20 foot ceilings.. Tables and chairs, not stools. Entertainment was appropriate. A piano man taking text requests was good.
This venue had nothing to do with the three embers rest.,unless they did the cooking. But, since when is a good prime rib signature enough to name the venue.
The next question about recommending Three Embers can't be answered. I've not been to the Three Embers, yet.

The salad was skimpy, the mashed potatoes and green beans were very good ,the primerib was tough. I thought the quality from a business that has been around for many years was not up to par. For $45.00 I was disappointed.

Safely-distanced, and under a big tent that is kept warm with heaters, we enjoyed a delicious prime rib lunch and fine wine while listening to live entertainment.

We attended the Three Embers Supper club with pianist. Excellent entertainment. The food was good. The entrance door was left open for at least 30 minutes so the tent/room was very cold. Finally after dinner they turned the heat on. Waiter service was attentive.

The room was a bit cold and the prime rib was not up to the quality that Three Embers is known for.

I would recommend Three Embers but not necessarily the Pavilion experience.

We enjoyed our Supper Club hosted by Marriott Lincolnshire, food by Three Embers. The menu was excellent, especially the prime rib which was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was excellent - attentive to our needs, positive attitude, very professional - wish we knew her name. The ambience in the tent was less than what we would have liked, especially for a Supper Club, but considering the pandemic circumstances, the hosts did well. The temperature of the area was chilly, but we made due with our coats. Would do this again.

The room was cold, as the outside doors were open the entire time we were there. The food was barely warm when served. The server was excellent. The entertainer sang requests and made a number of errors (forgot the lyrics, got lost, etc.). He should have performed a programmed show with time for a few requests. The flow was terrible. Once more thing - the piano was the only thing in tune that evening,

What could have been an excellent experience turned out to be not so good. This event was billed as a "Supper Club" at the Marriott. I have experienced real supper clubs and this fell short. Can you imagine a "Supper Club" only offering 1 brand of vodka and one bottle of cabernet sauvignon. This event was held in a tent that could have seated 500 people. Everyone was seated appropriate for the covid guidelines - 17 tables well spaced. I expected the food and drink to be close to the "normal" offerings of the Three Embers Restaurant but it turned out to be banquet level offerings. The entertainment was a solo piano player on a stage with no stage lighting accepting requests over text messages. In addition, the doors were open and no heat. This event certainly could have met covid guidelines and been an excellent experience with little effort but truly fell short. You really have to be starved for a night out to enjoy this.

Live in the area and have never checked out the restaurant. It was restaurant week so $38 for a three course meal. Service was not great, very nice waiter but struggled to keep up, our entrees ended up coming out before our apps. And our desserts definitely spent some time waiting to be brought out. Food was very good however and we weren’t in a hurry so it didn’t matter to us. Wine selection is solid but red wines aren’t chilled at all so some normally solid wines struggled a bit at 70 degrees. All in all we would go back and hope for better service.

The menu was quite limited and seemed to be, well, fancied up. The server, Abraham, was at times attentive, at times forgetful, and at times no where to be found. Ambiance was quite nice.
We arrived early because of what we had read about slow service, and we were seated early because the restaurant was less than half full. If we had waited until our 6:30 reservation, when the restaurant was much busier, we would have likely been late for the play.

Arrived at 5:30. Had theater tickets for 8PM in the same complex. Was greeted by our waiter and ordered drinks. When drinks arrived, we order appetizers that were brought by servers.it was at least a half hour later that the waiter came to take our entree order. Again the food was brought out by servers. The waiter never checked on us or took additional drink orders. After our entrees we would have had dessert and coffee, but no one ever game to our table. Finally at 7:35 percent waved him down and all he said was I’ll get your checks. He returned and we paid and left. All that the time we spent there ( over two hours ) and we ran out of time to finish the meal . Totally unacceptable. By the way. The food was delicious. The service was terrible.
