Very good we both enjoyed our evening. Menu suited us, the setting was good and the staff got it just right. Will definitely be back.

Wife and I arrived early to have a drink at the bar before dinner. Bar attendant had limited/no experience at making gin martinis resulting in one part gin and five parts vermouth martinis with a twist of lemon after a 20 minute wait with the bar nearly empty. The steak selection was two choices but four choices appeared on the menu at Open Table. I ordered a rare steak but it was served medium rare with a sugary dark sauce on top. A large porterhouse steak. I had wanted to order a T-bone but not on the actual menu at the restaurant. The room was rather warm with a lit fireplace. No view of anything inside at this restaurant. Décor needs updating. Hard to believe that the Walnut Restaurant has a 4.5 rating at Open Table.

Used to have meeting. Basically very calm as such good feeling to take but when I went there, party was held in the same restaurant which was noisy for us.

We had a late reservation for dinner at the Walnut through Opentable, but it turns out that they don't actually have that time available (10pm). They were not sure how I was able to book it, and the restaurant was closed.

However, the host was kind enough to seat us for dinner and keep the staff there longer even though it was clear they were closed. The service was excellent, and for that I applaud the Walnut. The food itself was nice, especially for it being a late night dinner.
