Date with the wife. Restaurant was beautiful. Service was excellent. Appetizers were well presented and tasted good. She had the stuffed trout and I had the swordfish as a main course. Presentation was nice and cook on both was good. We had the creme brûlée for desert and enjoyed the variety of flavors. Food was good, service was great. We will go again

The Walnut Room is a lovely venue. The service was excellent; I arrived quite early for my reservation and they seated me right away. The food was stellar! I had to slow down eating in order to savor every bite. I wouldn’t call this a value menu. It’s a fine dining menu. If you want value, go to McDonald’s. If you want fine dining, come here.

I ordered eggs over medium my eggs were over easy. The hashbrowns were as if they were freezer burned there were only a few hashbrowns overwhelmed with onion and hard bits of I don’t know what that I had to spit out. My daughter had eggs Benedict she said they were OK not very much hollandaise sauce. The coffee was terrible even though I like strong coffee this coffee was over the top straw I couldn’t even drink it. We had my five-year-old granddaughter with us and there was no children menu. They weren’t very busy and the service was very slow. I did not complain because I did not want to have to wait any longer for our food. The waiter bragged about the sticky buns so we ordered one and I swear it was left over from The day before. I have been in the restaurant business I know I should’ve complained but we didn’t have the time to sit and wait after all it was Christmas Eve and we had other things to do. I will not be back.

The Walnut Room was wonderful. The room itself was tad bit noisy for my taste, but we also had a very loud party behind us. The service was amazing. We had Laura, who was a delight, and gave us some great recommendations including the Elk Loin. This was the first quality fine dining experience we have had in Green Bay. Our food was more than perfect, it was an entire experience and the spinach salad was the best salad I have ever had in my life. We also enjoyed the calamari appetizer, French onion soup, duck and waffle entree and the chocolate hazelnut cake. It was all spectacular.

Room decor and concept is elegant. Service attentive except bar tender was off putting. Food choices good but not the "wow" factor given the pricing. Each plate should be perfect and 2/4 entrees not. Steak was rare with cold center when ordered medium and roasted chicken tender but no sauce (or forgotten) with vegetables cold. Lots of high end competition in the area so hopefully it was just an off night for the chef.

Waited over 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. I was surprised when the dining room wasn't full, with a wait that long I expected every table to be full. Took another 15-20 min for our server to take out drink order, repeat for dinner order. This was a Saturday night reservation made weeks in advance. Were they significantly understaffed, on a Saturday, the night before a home Packers game? GM was very nice, as was our server. Food was good very good, interesting menu options. Kinks to work out before I'd go back.

First time dining here and we enjoyed the atmosphere although it was a bit loud. Our server was attentive and the food was exceptionally delicious. I had the Roasted Elk Loin and my wife the Petite Filet Mignon. We both enjoyed every bite. Will definitely return.

I love the character of the building. The ambiance is so charming. The food is wonderful. I love how the menu is set up. You choose an entree which has a vegetable, but you can order other sides as well. As a bonus, they surprised us with free hors d'oeuvres between our courses!

The service was excellent. The ambiance was very good, but not excellent. For what I would expect for a high-end restaurant, the dining room seemed a little plain and the food, while excellent, could have been more inventive. I would dine there again. I did appreciate the fact that it was not noisy. Unlike some restaurants in Green Bay, we could actually hear each other speaking.

I would recommend the Walnut Room....but the chef needs to know that Swordfish should be served moist. The last couple bites of my swordfish were so dry, it couldn't be eaten.
And for me, when food isn't perfectly cooked, the price tag shouldn't be $31.00.
The Caesar is not worth $8.00. Very small with hardly any lettuce. I'm not sure what happened to The Walnut Room,....when it first opened, I never had a bad meal and the caesar was much better.
The ambiance is wonderful and it's worthy to be seen.

My wife and I visited here on October 25th, 2019.
What an excellent experience! We were able to enjoy an appetizer, soup and/or salad, entree and a dessert and didn't have to take anything home with us. The proportions were just right. Just what I would have expected from an upscale restaurant.
The noise level was great. We were able to have conversation without overhearing other tables' conversations or overhead noise. The acoustics were very good. It wasn't very busy when we visited, but I don't think that would have been a factor if it were busier as the tables are set apart from each other.
The other nice thing is that the menu is presented to you on an ipad, so you get to see and choose the drinks and entrees with the description, visual image and drink pairings.
Laura our waitress was wonderful!
The price point for drinks and food was right on par with a restaurant of this caliber.
We will definitely be visiting again.

Had really high hopes as the building and interior are amazing. Beautiful menu, really great drinks, but poorly executed. Our waitress didn’t know the menu, the food was at best OK. The drinks however (especially the traditional old fashioned) were amazing. Not on target from a value perspective- no problem paying 35-50 for an entree, but it needed to be on point for that price point.

Time to receive wine, and also meal parts very slow and waitress seemed overwhelmed. Split bill was misunderstood twice.
Food was very good but not worth the service mishaps

The restaurant atmosphere is wonderful and the renovated hotel is beautiful! We made reservations for our 25th wedding anniversary and were glad we did.
The salmon and the wasabi mashed potatoes were fabulous. My husband had the pork chop and gouda mashed potatoes - we were very pleased with both entrees!
They did a great job with the decor and the service was fantastic. We will definitely recommend The Walnut Room to friends and family!

We were quite pleased with our meal at the Walnut Room. The space is attractive and relatively quiet. The menu is very interesting and the food quality was excellent. The wine list is mid-sized but the quality of the available wines was very good. The staff was very friendly, helpful and pleasant. We highly recommend dining at the Walnut Room.
