    Had a group of six for a business meeting. We were seated in a semi private nook with great, historic Packer memorabilia on the walls. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We tried several shared sides and every they didn’t disappoint, so good! The serving sizes are huge so we had plenty of leftovers. The bartender was great as well as the server we had. Great experience!

    My pepper crusted filet mignon was perfectly cooked to medium, the side order of brussels sprouts was delicous. My husband enjoyed the french onion soup, best he's ever had.

    Lobster tail had no flavor.. rubbery would best describe it . Steak was over cooked from what was ordered . For what the cost of the meal was I expected something better . App was probably the best part of the meal . The service was excellent from our server ZERO complaints about him .

    Our server Debbie was awesome, she was very professional and answered our questions about the food. She also gave us a brief history of the restaurant, which was great because we are Packer fans. Gave our first experience an outstanding experience. Food was great and tasty. Overall we will be back. Next time please have the 33 Oz tomahawk steak. I wanted to eat that one so bad. Just me by for myself due to having such a big appetite. We will be back and next time with family. Thank you again Debbie.

    This was our first time at this restaurant we will not be returning! The steaks the waitress recommended New York strip were overcooked and tough ! The side dishes were very good . Our service was horrendous ! it took about 20 minutes to finally have the waitress come over and take our order. We were there for two hours and 45 minutes and that was without cocktails or dessert just to get our meal and eat it. The manager got an attitude when told that the steaks were not good Overall a terrible experience and we won’t be back . Texas roadhouse is way better and always consistent and a fourth of the price !

    Lombardi has really gone down hill. The service was slow and they were not terribly eager to address stated issues. The food was mixed… the entrees were ok, but the apps were subpar. I ordered buratta and it was placed in the middle of what appeared to be a veggie platter and- here’s the kicker- they put salami/sausage on the plate! I was at a loss. Definitely not worth the money.
    Vince Lombardi's SteakhouseResponded on April 8, 2024

    Overall it was decent. This is our third time there. They need to improve their service. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks which were just sodas and 45 minutes before we got our wine. It was more than an hour before we got bread at the table. The server seemed to just have too many tables. The food was good, but not great. The lobster Mac and cheese was ridiculously big and the way it was served seemed odd for a higher quality restaurant. It was a big platter full of pasta that could serve an entire family but with very little lobster since there was so much macaroni. The steaks were over cooked and the appetizers were decent but not a wow. It has a lot of potential but they seem to be short on staff and attention to their presentation of food.

    Ordered a Tomahawk and received thinly sliced meat and a bone. Not sure what kind of meat it was, but it got cold & tough quickly because it was cut into pieces. A $135 steak intentionally ruined. Even the pictures of that specific steak show it being served as an intact steak. No one could explain why they intentionally ruined my steak. All I heard as response was, sorry to hear you don't like it for an almost $600 meal for two people. Ironically, we had multiple customers visiting several days later so I tried talking them out of wasting money at Lombardie's.

    Hadn’t been to Lombardi‘s in a while and wanted to try it prior to a show at our art center. Admittedly did not go for steak and just wanted apps and salad. Limited app choices but spring rolls good. Chop salad wasn’t as good as Costco. Lobster bisque was good. Drinks good service understaffed for a high end steak restaurant. All in all just ok and a bit tired as a restaurant.  Hopefully they can continue to improve because it’s an important staple in downtown Appleton.

    We waited 10 minutes for someone to come out of the back and seat us, even though we arrived at our reservation time and there were only 3 other tables with customers. The bartender went back twice to let them know we were waiting. The Packer memorabilia was neat, but the table decor was tacky. My meal was $52 for 2 -5oz lobster tails. It came with a lemon wedge and butter and a small salad. My husband had the half brick chicken. There was hardly any chicken and it was cooked terribly. It came with about 25 baby potatoes and some asparagus. The potatoes were the only good part, but he still couldn't finish them, as there were far too many. They do have an extensive list of expensive wines. If you are a wine lover with money, perhaps this is a good option, but I would eat before going. We will not be going back.

    We have eaten at Lombardi's many, many times but the last few times it has not lived up to our expectations. We had the seabass and a tenderloin. The meat was under seasoned. The seabass was prepared with the skin on. Our server did not offer any descriptions regarding the menu. Had our server told us anything about the preparation I would have ordered something else. We did ask about chef recommendation or special but she told us there was none. Once the food was served she did not come back to check to make sure the steak was prepared properly or to see if we needed anything. We looked for her but could not get her attention. The seabass was a little fishy (yes I know it's fish but seabass should have a strong fish taste). The sauce was very bland and I really needed some lemon. Eventually my husband went to the bar to get me some. Overall dinner was edible but not great and the service was not up to par. Not sure when or if we will be back :( which is a shame as it was always a special treat.

    First and the last time there. The ambiance was good but the bar was poorly stocked and the lobster that was served was spoiled. They served it anyway. Originally took one tail with us thinking maybe it was undercooked and that gave it the grey appearance but nope, it was no good. No good to the point that my fridge still wreaks of the stench 3 days after having the tail in there overnight. I didn't mention it that evening because, as stated thought maybe it was undercooked and could be remedied. Did send a private message to the establishment and received no acknowledgement. Posting in order to make others aware due to restaurant not willing to reassure they will take it up with their kitchen.

    Waitress superb, my steak was overcooked but still excellent and would have been redone had I pointed it out (I ate it anyway, very good but if it had been medium rare instead of medium well it would have been excellent). Needed more time to wonder and look at all the photos.

    Lombardi has always been a great place for business or pleasure. Service and the atmosphere is spot on. I know pricing everywhere has gone up, that's expected. The sides were always sharable, not anymore. Desserts are now enough for one. My opinion

    Steaks and sides are second to none. Craft cocktails can’t be beat!

    It was a good meal but was not up to the standards from before the pandemic.

    Great experience at Lombardi’s! Steak and lobster solid along with the bang bang shrimp! Lobster bisque disappointing. Very little lobster and vegetables added didn’t really like. Overall a good spot!

    Steaks were GREAT. Grilled shrimp was overcooked. Dessert (lava cake) was awesome.

    We’ve tried to give this place multiple chances, as it really is one of the only fine dining experiences in the area, but, despite the beautiful rooms and fun Lombardi items on display, it has been a disappointment more times than not. The staff are obviously trying their best, and are friendly and attentive, but they can’t make up for what’s coming out of the kitchen (and what’s being charged for it). The steaks are excellent quality, but as someone who loves salt, even I find them overly salty and often not cooked to temp (we’ve had issues of both under and over). But the real issue is everything else on the menu - the sides are terrible (both the Brussels sprouts and the broccolini, two of my fave vegetables, were inedible), and the salads and appetizers generally pretty to look at but poor representations of the classics they were meant to be: The lobster bisque was chunky, and not with lobster meat, and the pasta tasted like it had been cooked in a burnt smoker, just to name two. I’m happy to pay for a great meal, but the exorbitant prices for such mediocre (and worse) food is really absurd.

    We came to celebrate a Packer fan’s retirement and it was well worth the trip!

    Last time we dined here was pre-COVID. Food quality and service very disappointing. We went for our daughter’s birthday, made reservation 5 days ahead of time with request to bring out her dessert with candle. Server couldn’t find candles and held a lighter as we sang happy birthday. Our party of 4 spent $500. Not worth it at all.

    Way too expensive for the value of your meals. Surrounding table was discussing the prices also and felt they were to expensive for what they received. When we walked in I wondered where the customers were as the restaurant was empty. Now I understand. Will not recommend to anyone. Anneliese Kruger

    Our tenderloins were outstanding. But overall, sadly that is all that was outstanding. When we asked the location of the restrooms, our waiter said they were dirty and didn't advise we used them, so we should exit out the emergency door and go down the hall to the complex restrooms. No background music played until halfway through our meal. Our candle wasn't lit so we switched it out with an empty tables. We waited long for our salad even though only about 5 tables were occupied. Our waiter said the sides were plenty large for 2 people, they were actually quite small. Overall when we pay a tad under $200 for 2 meals, we expect high end service and ambience. Will not return.
