    Ordered broccoli which never came. Ordered two baseball steaks medium rare that came out medium medium well and they ran out of mashed potatoes that the dish came with so we had french fries. At least the drinks were good.

    The garden room is fabulous in ambiance. Food and drinks top rated. If I had to make 1 criticism the Arnold Palmer was awful. Hey step up you game with ice tea and lemonade.

    Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was comfortable. Bar noise was absolutely awful. No conversation possible in our booth. Really a bummer since everything else was so pleasant. Perhaps one of the booths near the kitchen would be more tolerable; except who wants to sit by the kitchen? Recommend a Yes based on food and service. But, if you want to enjoy conversation over dinner, might want to try somewhere else.

    For twenty years, we have been coming to Quiet Woman when we rent on Balboa Island in the Winter. One of our favorites! Last night we had a 7:00 reservation. It was almost 7:30 before we were seated, but we were treated well and graciously. The host and our server were exemplary , the server particularly so! Very loud , but that is to be expected. Our meal was promptly served and delicious as always.

    Disappointing. Decided to try the quiet woman on Valentine’s Day after many years of not being there. I was surprised to be seated in a back patio area, which looks like a converted garage. I started with the quiet woman’s salad, which was very good. My wife ordered the chicken piccata, and I ordered the Spicy rigatoni à la vodka. My wife was very disappointed in the chicken piccata it was a large breast that was dry and not seasoned well. My spicy rigatoni, à la vodka was delivered lukewarm, obviously sat on the warming table for 10 or 15 minutes because all of the sauce had coagulated, and was so spicy that neither my wife or I could eat it. We decided to get to go containers and take this home. I’m disappointed in the quiet woman because I have fond memories of going there over 30 years ago and the food was great.

    A wonderful experience for my partner and I! The only thing was that they were filming in the main building, and there wasn’t notice until we showed up to our reservation. If we were in a section that had been filmed we would have had to cancel. It was great otherwise! Lovely staff, beautiful patio and amazing food.

    We were in the outside area, along Marguerite. We'd never sat there before and it's very different. Pretty, with the same great food and service, but NOTHING like going to the inside Quiet Woman. So be prepared for that. It's like being in a little cafe.

    We go to the QW all the time! Always great food. Typically, we share meals. This is the first time we were each charged an eight dollar split charge. Our bill was over $350 for 4, so I was caught off guard by this extra charge. Kind of disappointing. We didn’t have our usual server, so maybe that was the difference.

    We eat here six times a year for the birthday of each of us in the group. The food is good, even great, but the wait time do our food is not. This time, it took 1.25 hrs to receive our entrees, from the time we sat, until the plates arrived. And because we eat here so often, we pretty much know what each of the six of us want before we sit. Our server tried to explain that they had a rush at five p.m., but given we had a reservation at five thirty, we were on time (even early), and the reservation was made weeks in advance, our food should have been given a better priority.

    This was my first time dining at The Quiet Woman. The restaurant itself is small and quite dark, but overall a nice atmosphere. It is not quiet, but rather noisy especially where we were sat which was in the bar area. Our reservation was set for 7:30 got sat about 15 mins later. Our waitress, I believe her name was Tiffany, was very nice and attentive. Our lemon drop was delicious and our food was very good. The issue was sitting so close to the bar. The band was very good. Overall, I would rate this restaurant a 4 out of 5.

    One of the best restaurant experiences I have had. I’ll share of a couple key memories from the evening. - service. Service is top notch especially with 3 kids. We were first greeted by Julius. We requested a certain table and were given that table. Our waitress Jessica came immediately to our table for drinks. We received amazing service where water was always filled and we felt well attended. Amazing job. - food. Wow the food. Great food options for fancy dining and for kids. We started with an artichoke for our family. Soooo good. Kids had the world’s best chicken fingers and Mac and cheese. Wow so good. My wife had the scallops and I had the roast. Both amazing choices. Can’t go wrong everything on the table was award winning. Great job kitchen. Oh the bread how could I forget. Jessica brought it out wow the best. Thank you for making this a special evening for my wife’s birthday with the family. If you have kids. It’s a great place to eat great food for the entire family at a great price.

    What a nightmare. I had NO idea how loud this place is. Like obscenely loud. Between the table of hammered baby boomers in the booth next to us and the amateur cover band, our dinner was ruined. To top of the night, before I could even pay for my food (ended up getting most of it to go before touching it because the vibe was so horrible) two mature Karen’s lurked over my table and complained that the host ignored them and gave away their table. She took a seat before i even completely left the booth! Beyond entitled and rude. My server seemed overwhelmed with the table of drunks next to us but she was as attentive and nice as she could be. Despite the nice service and excellent Thai curry mussels, i wont be coming back.

    What a fabulous classic restaurant. Before we were married over 36 years ago my wife and I ate here. It was wonderful to be back. It was fabulous then and even better today than I remembered it. The rack of lamb is truly exceptional! This place has a great bar scene, great appetizers and the service was as exceptional as the food. You will really enjoy yourself.

    Very crowded and very not Quiet. If you liked it back in the day, you’ll like it now. Overall this place needs an upgrade to decor, silverware, dinnerware, etc… Everything is very old. I did not get them, but the crab legs looked fabulous at another table. Our fish dinners were good. Had crème brûlée for dessert and it was perfect. Of course excellent wines and cocktails. Overall nice place to come on occasion.
