    We had a lovely dinner with friends who had driven from Katona, NY. We hadn’t seen them for two years. Food very good. Waiter excellent. I did not see “market price” on the Tomahawk beef. Could not believe that they could charge $135.00 for one entree. We have lived world wide… we have had superb food in countries most haven’t heard of. We love to cook. We love good food. We have paid market price for crab cakes. I paid $46.00 for an entire tenderloin of beef for Xmas at Costco. We four felt like fools… we could not believe this charge. We called the restaurant when we got home to ask if this was a mistake. They were closed. I do not know what “market” that beef came from but it wasn’t even edible. I took it home and will boil some flavor into it. Shame. We liked Trummer’s, but we will share this shocker. Sincerely, Robert Cablish-Langworthy

    We had a wonderful bachelorette lunch here! Our server, Brittany, was incredible and she went above and beyond to make our day special. She was extremely attentive and personable and I can safely say that I have not received this level of service in a very long time! Definitely a day to remember! Thank you <3

    Current favorite: Chestnut Soup! The Burrata Cheese Salad was okay, but we prefer the traditional caprese salad. Love the bread. Love the weiner schnitzel, the fish. Cannot stop dreaming of "The Sage" cocktail - yummy.

    Quite honestly, I was a bit underwhelmed. Dined on New Year's Eve Eve (Dec 30). Had a two-person table in a relatively poor location. Not sure why tables were placed in this location. Felt like we were in a back corner. The waiter seemed nervous and inexperienced but was nice. I know restaurants are having trouble with staffing needs, but I think I expected a bit more of a professional waiter. The fried scallop app was to die for. Truly outstanding dish. The entrées were good but slightly under the level I would expect. Overall, it was a nice meal, just not at the level that reviews claimed it would be. I will certainly return again but not before trying a number of other places of interest.

    Done on short notice when traffic made it impossible to go to another place for our 37th anniversary. This was our 3rd visit this year, and our waitress remembered us from a previous visit. When our pre-dinner drinks were delayed because of backup at the bar we were given complimentary glasses of champagne for our anniversary, This is the 4th time we have celebrated our anniversary at this charming restaurant, which now has a superb wine list and the bar has some very unique cocktails. The food and service is always superb.

    The couple we were with had never been to Trummer's before, so for them it was an experience. We went on December 27, and Trummer's was serving their holiday menu. The featured first course items that we tried were the chestnut soup, the foie gras, and the baked brie. We all loved what we had. We all had the beef Wellington as our main course, and we all agreed it was perfect. Our server didn't meet our expectations. My wife and I ordered a bottle of wine. We didn't get it until we were almost done with our first course. (The couple we were with ordered the Austrian wine flight; they were served right away.) I also asked for salt and pepper to go with my first course. I didn't get it until I was almost done with it. We were seated toward the back of the Conservatory, which was great. We were originally offered a table at the bottom of the steps as you enter the Conservatory. We asked to be reseated at the table we were eventually seated at, which was fine. Our meal, which consisted of two first courses, two main courses, and a bottle of wine, was expensive, but I thought the food and ambiance were outstanding. Trummer's just has to work out the kinks in their service.

    Had a 5:30 pm reservation on the 22nd. Got there on time. Service was really slow. Waitress finally came and made some recommendations, including the Duck Breast. Drinks and food very late getting to us, when the Duck Breast came it was barely cooked. Red and bloody on the inside. I returned it and they apologized and said they would get it right. As the waitress was delivering it a second time the manager came running out and took it right back. I barely had a chance to look at it, but it was again clearly very undercooked. I told the manager we just wanted to leave. We settled up and left. Very disappointing experience. They try to be a high end place with high end prices, but they are not even close. Undercooked poultry and a very inexperienced manager and staff. Won't be going there again and I am a local.

    Immediately, from when we walked through the door, and the young women greeted us with cheer, to the beautiful interior, to the stellar service by Patrick everything was amazing. Including, of course, the incredibly delicious food, that quality was apparent, and all courses were cooked to perfection accommodating my Celiac needs. [PRIME RIB with horseradish cream, ROTISSERIE POTATOES in duck fat, chives, smoked sea salroule scallion, ROTISSERIE CARROTS in honey, sweet tea walnuts and BUTTERNUT SQUASH Crème Brûlée. NOTE: The menu changes seasonally.] In addition, this high-end restaurant provided a rare comfortable vibe. Especially impressive things to pull off during a peak busy holiday dining weekend.

    Food was fine, although not spectacular. We were there for more than 40 minutes before drinks were on our table, and they had plenty of staff and weren't unbelievably busy. Our server seems to have forgotten our bread order even though she read everything back and confirmed it. Water glasses were empty frequently for 20-minute stretches of time. It didn't feel like a special experience.

    Appetizers were good, but entrees were a disappointment. Duck breast was hard to cut with a butter knife and very gamey flavor. Scallops were stringy and overcooked. Really liked the ambiance, but no plans to go back for dinner. Likely only return for brunch.

    We ordered two different kinds of bread from the appetizer menu. Both loaves were room temperature or cold, and stale. Not a good start to dinner. The entre's were OK, but expensive when weighed against the service, and ambiance. We were here a few years ago and wanted to give you guys another chance. Looks like it will be a another few years until we come back.
