    From the moment we walked in the door we were always greeted with a smile and a pleasant conversation. Our waiter was exceptional with explaining the entrées, service and small conversation to help associate a friendliness with them. The Chilean Sea bass was the best I’ve ever had. The freshness of our salads, not to mention the size, was simple delightful.

    The food was spectacularly good and the serivce was excellent. This is the best steakhouse I've ever enjoyed. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly, and the Sea Bass could not have been better. Appetizers were way beyond expectations. I cannot say enough good about this restaurant. One of the best meals I've had in over sixty years of life.

    Arrived at 6:58. We were informed it wasn't 7 yet so we couldn't be seated. Weird beginning. Afyer we were seated our super nice server offered to open our wine bottle but shortly after, a 2nd server very rudely informed us we couldn't pay a cork fee because they had Domaine Serene on their wine list. Just wish the restaurant would have told me that when I inquired about the cork fee earlier in the day. We skipped appetizers and dessert so we could enjoy the wine we brought in from NC. Both of our meals were excellent.

    Great specials... Crab Bisque soup. The Shrimp Covered Salmon was delectable. The Bacon-Fig covered Ribeye was delicious. Basically, I'd cut a bite and set my fork down to enjoy the flavor. Those were the entrees, but every item we tasted was among the best we've tasted. Service was great and all was well.

    Overall, would definitely recommend. Went to W&H for my 5 year anniversary. I had the filet mignon and my wife had the roasted chicken. Mine food was delicious but hers was very bland. I was surprised when I asked her how her food was and she said it was okay but I could tell she wasn’t enjoying it much. I tried it and was surprised it had virtually no flavor. Still had a great time and the service was great. Would still go again!

    Tries to be a "Morton's" style steak house, but misses primarily in ambiance, which is downright overwhelming, due to all the hotel guests who don't know how to behave, let alone dress, in an up-scale restaurant. The wine list is good but overpriced (like Morton's), but the menu is quite limited in scope and vision, almost boring (unlike Morton's). I'd have think three or four times before dropping another $300.00 for 2 people to share a 1st, steak+side, cocktails and wine at W&H...

    We brought my father in law here for his retirement/ birthday dinner. The waitstaff was wonderful. They were very accommodating with our three year old son (trying to find a kids cup and offering every kids favorite, chicken fingers and fries 😆). We all ordered something different and everyone was very pleased with their meals. Steaks, crab cake, chicken and the special of crab stuffed founder..... all absolutely wonderful! I ordered (what I thought was house) cabernet and it was absolutely wonderful ($20 a glass though, ouch!) I absolutely recommend William and Henry. I can't afford to eat here unless it's a special occasion though 😆

    My filet mignon was the best I’ve ever had. I recommend the blackening seasoning. Our server, Scott, did an outstanding job. Fabulous restaurant- it’s pricey, but it is excellent. We’ve only been 3 times and we look forward to going back. Our service and food have been excellent every time.

    The most amazing dinner. Just curious though, when we booked our reservation, it asked if we were celebrating something. We filled it out- “yes” and that we were coming to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. We were so excited (first time to come). We kept waiting for something. A “Happy Anniversary”. Something. And … crickets. Why would you ask if there is something special you are celebrating if no one is going to acknowledge you or your occasion?
