We always have an incredible experience when we go to Rod's. My family has been going here for generations,; and the quality has not been compromised over the years. I took my parents out for their anniversary, and the staff was kind enough to bring over complimentary desserts to celebrate. The entire night they were professional and attentive. Overall it was a fabulous evening and we will definitely keep coming back!
Great beef, good cocktails, attentive service and a beautiful room.
Meat was overcooked on two of our steaks. Ordered rare. Came out medium well. Disappointing. One person sent back his steak and it was still a bit overdone. Other than that great service!
Date night with my wife. We come here often. It never disappoints. Great food, service, ambiance etc. wonderful evening.
Solid food, excellent service, and warm atmosphere.
A difficult review to write. We had no complaints over the food or service but probsbly wont be back.
Good food & drinks. Bit pricy but worth it.
Rods never disappoints. Filets are always cooked perfectly and the drink options are second to none. Lobster Mac and cheese is delicious as is the escargot and calamari with peppers. Started our evening a little late and missed out on desserts this time around because the kitchen had closed while we were finishing up our meals... there’s always next time
Great food, great service, great experience! We highly recommend Rod's!
Nice atmosphere food quality went downhill as well as warm wine
The steak was amazing as was all the food. The service was flawless.
Very nice staff. Quiet and clean. Food was good. Service was fast.
Great food and great service.
Excellent experience. Service was safe and food was delicious.
Fried calamari was good. After that everything was very bland. Not worth the prices. Service was polite but not great.
Thank you for your review Eric, I'm sorry you found your recent visit unsatisfactory, I'll discuss these issues with the appropriate staff, I can be reached at the restaurant if you would like to discuss this in further detail. Sincerely, Jerry Keller
Love the decor! Perfectly prepared steak, and Vegan friendly!
Steaks were very tender and service was great but the steaks were not that flavorful and very pricey.
Nice place, but we felt ignored by the staff.
Trying to get the waiters attention was impossible
thank you for your comments, I'd lioke to learn more about the service issues, please feel free to contact me at the restaurant. Sincerely, Jerry Keller
Rods is one of my fav steakhouses, from the service to the food. This time around I wish there was more lobster in my Mac & Cheese, but out of the many times I have been there they have always met my expectations — so this time gets a pass.
Thanks for making my celebratory night special as always. They read my birthday reservation note and everything flowed perfectly. The cakes we ate were just delightful.
And can’t beat all the available parking and spacious seating.
Excellent service!!!!! Amazing food! Highly recommmend!
Overall experience was very good. The only critique I have is that upon arrival the hostess directed us to the other restaurant (same menu) but not where we wanted to be seated since I had made a reservation for Rod’s specifically. They accommodated us when we mentioned that we wanted to be seated where our reservation had been made, but I felt that we shouldn’t have had to ask.
Great food, great service, gorgeous inside and out.
Great food, service and staff! Loved every dish - flatbread and lobster Mac n cheese were our favorites!
I had the tomato bisque, scallops, and fudge cake....absolutely delicious.
We were able book a table for 5 people at 6 :00 on a Monday night. We came with a 2-year-old who was very well behaved, but needed to take little walks around the restaurant from time to time. I noted on the online reservation that we were celebrating my adult son's birthday, and after our dinner, the waiter brought out a beautiful plate with two desserts on it and a lit candle. Very sweet, and quite touching!
Nice night out. Last time we came there were more upscale options on the menu, but we decided on different cuts of steak and they were both excellent. Service can’t be beat.
Staff was very nice and quick to be of service.
The food and service were excellent like usual.
Service is top notch, atmosphere is relaxing, and the food is outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
My husband and I had dinner here when we stayed at the hotel. Lovely special occasion historical ambience. We enjoyed the kale salad, baby back ribs and berries with zabaglione. Nice wine by the glass selection and extensive bottle choices.
Service was excellent. Ambiance was beautiful with old world charm. The owner came up and spoke to us to check on our service, which was a nice touch. Appetizers were great but steak & sides need to be seasoned more.
Dinner was fabulous. Steaks cooked to perfection.
We needed to be up in Morristown so we needed a hotel. We basically picked The Madison Hotel since we were familiar with Rod’s Steakhouse. My husband and I both had delicious meals. I had filet mignon and he had scallops. Nice wine list and wonderful service. For those concerned with COVID protocols, the restaurant had clear dividers separating tables as well as diners were spread far apart. All staff had on masks so it’s definitely a safe environment to dine in during these crazy times.
Food was good but service was a bit slow. A lot of the restaurant is closed down due to the restrictions but Rod’s needs to work better to not let it feel that way. It basically felt like you were there after hours as the vibe was dead and there was no energy. Service was weak and there were only a couple of tables filled. Restaurant is. It worth going back to until they fully reopen and get some energy back.
We dined at Rod’s at an early hour during the week. We were seated upstairs and had the floor to ourselves. The waitstaff was friendly and efficient. Our scallops were cooked perfectly and the meal presentation was excellent. The cheesecake was the perfect ending.
Visited last weekend and enjoyed ourselves so much we returned this weekend with our cousin. Drinks, food, staff, ambiance... all wonderful. Will certainly return!
Very disappointed. Had made reservations for 9 people and it took 45 mins just to get our drinks. Food was decent. All 4 guests who had ordered the chicken said it was DRY. Steaks were overcooked and the scallops were sooo small for the price you pay. Server kept forgetting things and when we wanted dessert we were told kitchen was closed. How is that our fault the kitchen was closed because everything took SOOOO long.
Thank you for your review MicheleB, I'm sorry to learn of your disappointment on your recent visit, I have no valid excuse but I will discuss these issues with the appropriate staff so that we may avoid a recurrence. Please accept my personal apology and feel free to contact me at the restaurant if you would like to discuss this further Sincerely, Jerry Keller
This was my first visit to Rod’s in Morristown and I wasn’t impressed. The hostess seated us at a two-top even after I showed her the confirmation for 3 people. Once we were finally seated at an appropriate table, service was a bit slow. Atmosphere was great and food was okay. In light of the pandemic and its effect on the restaurant business, I will happily give it another go to support our local businesses and hope for a better experience!
