Always a pleasant fulfilling meal at Schlesinger's! We go there regularly and for occasions. This last visit was awesome. Brad recommended a very good blend red wine and waitress was very attentive and friendly! Thanks for a wonderful dining experience once again.

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.

There were three of us in my party. My wife and I had the steak and scallops land/surf combo. The steaks were cooked just right and the scallops were large and tasty, but only three in number. My sister-in-law had a different seafood combo with the scrimp dish instead of the scallops. 'Two of us had the Caesar salad and a French onion soup and another sea-type soup were enjoyed. The wine was served in the proper-sized glasses, as explained by the server, wide mouth for the wine which was warm and the narrow mouth for the chilled wine. This was news to us. The desserts were plentiful and all took home left overs of the meal to be enjoyed the next night.
All in all, a very good evening treat!

The restaurant was pleasing to the eye and the food was excellently prepared. Portion sizes were spot on and without the over quantity from some chop houses. Staff was excellent and called me quickly after I left my card at the restaurant. Overall, a go again.

Decided to come here since all my boyfriend wanted for his birthday dinner was a good steak. Schlesingers did not disappoint. He had an amazing ribeye and I had the seafood trio, both were impeccably prepared. We did the Ahi Tuna appetizer and I knew we were in for a treat. I enjoyed an Old Fashioned with bourbon to get things going. I will say it wasn’t the best Old Fashioned... perhaps they went a bit heavy with ice. But it was still good and I would have again with that recommendation to the mixologist. The scallops were amazing and that’s definitely an entree I don’t mess around with and like a certain way. The sauce the shrimp were in was so good I poured the remaining sauce over my Potatoes Schlesinger... which were mouth watering. I had a bite of his steak and it was one of the best bites of steak I’ve ever had.

We went for the Sunday Brunch. The basket of croissants and biscuits with honey buttter was delicious - I wish there had been more croissants in the basket. I got the chicken and waffles - the waffle was fantastic but at a gigh end restaurant they should be serving boneless fried chicken breast instead of a chicken thigh - the thigh was a bit tough. My Husband got the two eggs with three sides. He chose sausage, fried potatoes and cheese grits. His only complaint was the one tiny piece sausage link - they cut the sausage in half. Again at a high end restaurant I would have expected 2 small sausage links.

Wonderful! Once again. We have been here several times over the last 5 years and each time the food, staff and ambiance has been great! Last night 2 of us had the steak au poivre which they said were amazing! My son had the seafood trio and was not disappointed. Crab cakes were amazing! I had the appetizer of crab cakes and would definitely agree with his description. My almost 4 year old granddaughter loved them also. For the main course I had the ribeye which was wonderful even if it wasn't quite as medium rare as I personally like it. My son and husband had oysters on the half shell and they devoured them. My daughter in law had the thai shrimp and thought they were delicious. Our granddaughter basically ate off of our plates along with almost a full baked potato! We did get her the side of three cheese mac and cheese but she was more interested in the bacon on it and all of our food. Even though we ate a ton we all decided to try dessert. Oh what were we thinking!? lol Cheese cake was delicious, sorbet was enough to feed an army and so tasty as was my granddaughter's chocolate ice cream. My creme brulee was outstanding also. All in all - an amazing dinner!!!!

Our waitress was very polite, only thing that may be a bit better for the price is if you got two sides instead of one with certain meals.
