Best steak in the city is the cajun ribeye! Perfect view of the river and great cocktails!

We had a table right by the river. It was raining but we still enjoyed the view. You can order off the grill menu or the regular S&W menu or both. My husband ordered the shrimp bisque soup. It came to him cold but they brought another one right away. We both enjoyed our meal and he ambiance of the Wilensky Grill! Prices are a little cheaper than upstairs and you still can enjoy a good steak.

Steak needed to be cooked more (ordered medium and received too rare). Fries and Asparagus were too cold - had to ask for fresh fries when steak was brought out the second time. Fries still not very good - very hard (overcooked) and asparagus overcooked and soft. Management was nice as was server but not the steak experience I was expecting.

The best thing about our experience was the view overlooking the river. Service was great. Just average quality food was grossly overpriced. Two, small filets, two drinks and one vegetable side order for just a little less than $200. (Including tip). No desert or coffee. Will not go back.

Had a great seat and good service, ordered steak frites, pretty basic meal. The steak was great, the brandy peppercorn sauce was cold and the frites were cold, hard and not fresh. Rather disappointing to be honest. Would seriously struggle to go back for the cost.

The service was slow. The waiter came by to take our drink order and we asked for a minute and he was gone for 15 and then came back for the food order. We were looking for him to get his attention. He also similarly disappeared when we wanted the check. I and another diner in our group had the chopped salad and there was no dressing on it - but since we couldn't find the waiter - we just ate it as it was. View was great but for the price - service and food should have been much better.

Everything was great, the waiter and host where amazing in bringing out my husbands slice of cake for his birthday. The only negative were the fries that came with my dish, they tasted old, as if they were under the heat lamp for too long. Other then the fries everything was great. We will definitely be coming back.

Very lovely spot! Sat at the bar before our reservation and received wonderful service from the bartender. He was polite with the perfect amount of interaction. Then moved to a cozy spot right on the window with wonderful views of the river. We were celebrating a special day, the staff, from the host to the bartender to the waitress all accommodated us and made the day even more special.
