We really enjoy the bread and they were out of bread. The prime rib sandwich was too smoky of flavor

We were sat at a dirty table. We were not told we would be charged full price for appetizers. Found out that we need to sit at the bar or outside when we got the bill for the 1/2 appetizer. The meat ball pasta had the consistence of cat food. It was our first visit. It was our 33 wedding anniversary. My poor wife says never again.

All aspects of our experience was as excellent as it has always been. We love the place, and the drive from Saint Charles is no deterrent to us going there.

Reception and waitress were inattentive and slow. After havinf a drink and appetizer, I was never asked whether I wanted another drink nor were the dirty plates cleared from our table until we stacked everything and our dinner arrived.

Following our inability to dine out for months, Walnut Grill did not disappoint us. As much as the food, drinks, & service were as superior as ever, the guidelines for protecting it’s workers & customers were being followed with tables separated & masks worn by all employees. It was just unfortunate that the clientele were not following the medical community’s guidelines RE wearing masks.

So first time eating out for three months. Everything totally put me at ease. All servers and bartenders had masks on. When someone left the table they immediately sanitized. Outdoors was open most people outside. Everything was GREAT! So, good getting back to normal. People had masks on only at entrance and off they went. Perfect job guys!

I thought the food was excellent and would've given five stars overall but there was no soap in the women's bathroom, two dispensers empty, which is disgusting at the best of times but in the current climate especially, I found to be unacceptable. I told the hostess and she seemed to already know, did not apologize or do anything about it. There was still no soap when I went to wash my hands at the end of our dinner, after eating burgers with sticky sauce. That is not okay with me. If it wasn't for the great food I would've given one star.

The whole experience was disappointing. The server was very condescending and treated us with little respect. She never cleared dishes throughout the meal. Her appearance was unprofessional for the restaurant. Service was extremely slow. The steak wasn’t prepared correctly and sides were cold. I will not return.

Valentines Day. There is nothing to complain about. It was crowded for 5:30pm. The help was a bit understaffed as there was one couple in the SW corner booth who wanted to have that extra attention and fussed at the server. I think it threw the service detail off. Overall it was ok.
No dessert offered.

The service at our table was great, however the hostess completely ignored us for some unknown reason. We had a reservation and she said it would just be a couple min as people were getting up. We waited for a table to be cleaned for 15 min. We could see it but apparently no one cared that we were waiting for it. Two other couples came in without reservations and were seated in the bar where our reservations were. I finally asked the manager who said she wasn’t sure why we were still standing there and she’d seat us immediately. She took us to a booth in the restaurant. I asked if we could move to a high top in the bar as we’d reserved it to see the hockey game. I told her about the table that still wasn’t bussed and she said she’d clean it herself. At this point we’re walking into the bar from another direction and we could see four or more tables clean and open. I asked about them and she said that of course we could sit at one. She was very apologetic and still was not sure why we hadn’t been seated. It’s not that the hostess could forget us as we were the only people standing 19 ft from her in her lobby as she leaned on the hostess stand almost the whole time.
The food was just so-so. We live less than two miles from the restaurant and have been there only 4 times over multiple years as it’s never been anything we cared to go back to. I guess we’ll mark it off the list again.

Food was mediocre. The fish and chips was not good. Bread was gummy and butter was tasteless and had been sitting out too long. My salad was drowning in too much dressing. Our server, Baily was good. We didn't complain because we were with friends. The two hostesses were overwhelmed and asked me 3 times for our name.

It was a very enjoyable meal. The warm bread with a raspberry marshmallow topping was a surprise. The French onion soup and Caesar salad are both good starters.
The sauces surrounding the orange plank salmon and the swordfish spiedini are wonderful. The baked potato and the baked sweet potato are both good sized and tasty.

I figured walnut grill was top notch but christin proved otherwise. I was told the included $3 side dish could not be converted to the $4 side dish for $1. "It isn't allowed". Made no sense to me and was not a good start to dinner. She did not make us feel welcome and seldomly tended to us.

My wife and I had a 5:30 reservation on New Year's Eve, and were promptly seated. The service was good, and atmosphere festive. The food was a good value, but not over the top good as I remembered. Next time I go, and I will go again, I may simply have a sandwich and skip the more expensive entre, which was just pretty good.

We had to wait 25 minutes for a table in the dining room even though we had a reservation. That is totally unacceptable!! They wanted to seat us at a high-rise table in the bar!!!!
