Enjoyed our visit very much - sat outside on tablecloth table on lovely square . My son a CNU freshman had filet beef medallions and loved them - esp enjoyed such a good hot meal on a real plate as most of their dining hall food is grab and go containers!! I had lamb chops and it was a generous portion slightly overcooked but who’s complaining - great carmelization and thin sauce accompaniment. Cesars before were only average; desserts were exceptional, a creme brûlée and a slice of key lime. Very inexpensive wines by glass, though the by the glass list could be improved by offering at least one of the better wines on the list for a higher charge. We will be back - great restaurant in all respects.

Schlesinger's is ALWAYS good. The food is delicious and the service is top notch. Also, thanks to social distancing the capacity is lower, making it wonderfully quiet. It was the ideal site for a business lunch.

Went for Sunday brunch. Service was outstanding. Poached eggs were a bit overdone and bloody Mary's a bit weak. Everything else was great.

Schlesinger’s never disappoints. A small, intimate setting with superior all around service and fare. In the competitive wirld of high end steak houses, Schelesinger’s tops the list. Fine dining at its best, more than just a meal: A throw back to the elegant dining of yesteryear. Go!

It was a wonderful brunch to celebrate our son’s 18th birthday.

The restaurant has no control over patrons on the phone next to the outdoor seating area. That would be my only negative moment, but all three were brief.

We absolutely adore the manager at this establishment. We always feel like we are on a mini vaca to NY when we go. The music, the ambiance, the food unbelievable!! We had the filets cooked to perfection as always and the French onion soup is like a meal!! By the way if you want a real treat literally the best fried oysters ever for an app!! Thank you so much as always for making our night special!!

We picked Schlesinger's off the internet due to its location. We didn't know anything at all about it. Our son flew in to Newport News and we wanted a steakhouse near the airport. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. It was a truly great experience. The atmosphere couldn't have been better. It was quiet so that we could using our 'inside' voices and still communicate easily. The filet was the best my wife and I have ever had and we have been to a number of really nice restaurants. Service was a little slow but that was perfect this time because we wanted to enjoy spending time talking with our son who lives in Texas and was here on business. All of the COVID-19 precautions were in followed and we felt very safe. Even though Schlesinger's is over an hour drive from out house in Virginia Beach I expect we will make the trip again soon to experience the great food and the atmosphere.

Our server, Colin, was top notch and he ran through all menus and suggestions as well as being understanding for it being our first time eating at this establishment. The food was brought out in different courses so you don't feel overwhelmed in trying to eat everything at once before moving on to the next item. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Schlesingers and will be back to try new items on the menu

Our waiter, named Oliver, was amazing and very informed on the food and drink options both on and off the menu. When our steaks (Wagyu and Aged NY strip) came out under the dim lighting, the wait staff ensured it was cooked perfectly by pointing a flashlight on it and having us cut in the middle to verify. We appreciated that.

My wife and I have dined out since March at the start of the pandemic. I went on line and reviewed their COVID response. I knew it would be safe for us to dine there. We love eating here at this restaurant. The food and staff are great. We had a great waiter named Brenden. Brenden was very attentive and respectful. We love the restaurant’s ambiance. This is the 4th time that we have eaten there. We will return.

Was early, did not allow us to be seated early. Waited until 8:00 specifically before walking us to the table, waiter was very nice, very attentive. Food was average, I had the salmon and it was very sweet which isn’t my forte. But the value didn’t seem like it was there but it is a very high class restaurant.
