It was a nice time. Food good. Hostess stand could be better. Our waiter Collin was great. Food yummy
Dinner was outstanding. Thank you so much for my birthday savings. Melissa our waitress was fantastic. Thanks so much for a great dinner.
Dinner was excellent. Service and attentiveness was spot on.
The service and food were excellent. The server did a nice.
I’ve eaten a lot of sea bass, and this was the best. The sauce for the pistachio encrusted sea bass was superb. The appetizers were excellent as well - the fresh Mobjack Bay oysters were perfect. I asked for cocktail sauce, then discovered their signature sauce was much, much better. Our other appetizer, the bourbon pecan Brie was also excellent. And the dessert… chocolate ganache I believe, was beyond words. Thank you for our special anniversary dinner.
Love this place. Very appreciative of the customer service.
A dining favorite for sometime. I especially love the music and ambiance. I n
know wit limited seating the tables need to be close, but aa little more distance would be appreciated
Whenever I have an out of town guest I always try to impress my company with a meal at Schlesinger's. They always have a wonderful experience.
I was on a first date and our server was amazing and patient, and the food was outstanding as always!
What a great experience for me and my sisters!! EVERY food item was outstanding. The drinks and pours were generous.
Our server for the evening was Mark and he was EXCEPTIONAL! He was attentive, but not overbearing, knowledgeable and genuinely friendly.
You OWE it to yourself to visit this place. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Not wanting to attend a “super-spreader” event, but still experience a special evening, Schlesinger’s was a wonderful way to spend NY Eve! Our server, Karin, was charming, humorous and attentive, which added to our evening. The fried oysters were perfectly cooked without being overly fried.
There was a mishap with the proper cooking of my steak, which the manager (Brad?) rectified, albeit after my husband had finished eating his steak. Disappointing, but not impactful enough to prohibit us from a future visit.
Great service and food. Great staff.
We love to dine at Schlesinger's for special occasions, which we did for my husband's birthday. Schlesinger's did not disappoint. We had the ribeye and the petite filet mignon, which were cooked to perfection. The Schlesinger's potatoes were amazing. The caprese salad was so good, as well as our cocktails. We appreciated our server, Michelle, who was very attentive. Can't wait to go back!
Food was meh. Not worth the price.
I've eaten here for the past three years... I have never had a bad or mediocre experience... the number one restaurant I go to for Newport News
The wife and I went to celebrate our 41 anniversary. Overall we enjoyed our dinner and the night out. However; the wife's steak came out cold and my garlic mash potatoes were cold as well. Our waiter, Mark, was outstanding! He remedied the cold food issue immediately. Our table was next to a party of 6 young ladies who were very loud which made conversation difficult at best. Overall a good meal, but not excellent especially for the price.
I thought the service was slow I have been dining for years
We were warmly greeted at 6:25 and seated right away to our table, near the back like we had requested. The dinning room was completely full. Michelle introduced herself and expertly explained the evening's offerings. We had the onion rings for our starter. I had a cocktail and then a martini made to my order (wish they had Chartreuse at the bar but that is a rarity). Then we took advantage of the ½ price bottle of wine for Sunday. Very full wine list. We had the large filet mignon: amazing texture and had an extremely tender yet buttery quality. We also ordered the Frenched Lamb chops imported from Australia: very flavorful and not like any lamb I've had from here in the states. Both were prepared exactly as we had asked. We had the garlic mashed potatoes and the potatoes Schlesinger -- very tasty. We finished with desert of Bananas Foster and Chocolate Punctuation. Michelle made us feel special and quite welcomed. We highly recomend.
Went for Xmas Eve dinner. First time to Schlesingers. Reservation was at 2:30pm. We thought it was for dinner but they serve lunch at this time. They offered both the lunch menu and dinner menus to us. We ended up ordering from both menus. Server was excellent. Food was very good. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Drinks were very good. Overall we had a very nice experience and will dine here again in the future.
This is my favorite restaurant intros area. it was the first time I've taken the grandchildren. Thank you for their birthday cupcakes. They were very impressed, especially as they were treated as adults. Thank you
We had a very enjoyable evening by the fireplace! The food was great and they weren’t quick to push us out the door even though our gathering extended into closing hour. Overall was a great evening!
My husband and I had randomly chose to eat here when we came to Virginia for his 50th and we were so impressed that we made the 4 hour drive to come back. Everything about this place is amazing. You can’t go wrong with any of the main entrees. I can’t speak on the dessert since we are always too full to order one!
Steak was amazing. Ashley, the server, was outstanding
Schlesinger’s is a very nice restaurant with great food. Good either for a festive occasion or lunch anytime.
Food is outstanding, steaks cooked to perfection. Always our choice for special occasions. Our server the last visit was Moira and she provided excellent service.
Food, wait staff, surroundings always first class. Reserved for a girls Christmas Lunch and it could not have ben better We all enjoyed th food and our waiter Colin Can't wait for the next occasion.
It was a great dining experience overall. It was a little tight getting in and out of our seat because of the placement of the table. It took bit long to get our omelets. The omelets were ready, it took the server a bit long to get them to us. I still enjoyed!
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and I left embarrassed that this was the place I took him to. The brunch buffet was nothing more than an continental hotel breakfast. Most of the hot food was room temperature. I'm a big dessert person and I didn't even enjoy the plethora of dessert choices. Everything I ate was bland. I thought because this was an upscale restaurant, the buffet would have been enjoyable. Besides the food issue, we got stuck back into a small hallway section in the corner.
There was already two large parties in the front of the hallway, jammed packed. Every time I needed to get out of the section, I had to squeeze between people. I'm five feet, 110lbs, I shouldn't have to squeeze between anyone. The restaurant should have staggered its guess, not pile them into a small hall way. This was quite a disappointing experience.
Everything was delicious. I read several bad reviews, but the food was great. The only thing that wasn't good was that it took forever to get a mixed drink. Literally 10 to 15 minutes each time. Not our servers fault either as we could see her check at the bar.
Place to talk about business in a more casual way
Always enjoy our dinners here. Waitress seemed slightly impatient. Food was excellent
Service was very good. Steaks were prepared perfectly. Old fashioned was very good not too sweet. Onion rings were a little battery but worked sides were good but the steak was just right
Very relaxed and delicious lunch. Hope to make this a tradition.
The customer service and food was excellent!! The only negative thing I can say is that some of the patrons were a little loud. We will definitely return when we are in the area again.
Excellent selection for our anniversary celebration. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Cassie provided great service and was so helpful with ideas for our dining experience. The manager was warm and inviting. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxing. My seafood dish was delicious and we enjoyed a dessert together. We will definitely dine here again.
Excellent as usual
Steak was well seasoned and cooked to preferred doneness. Shellfish was delicious and not over cooked. Banana Fosters Cheesecake was also very tasty. Overall, great tasting food and service.
Pecan Brie appetizer was really good - it’s also on the dessert menu.
NY strip au poivre and filet medallions were perfectly cooked. The garlic mash was a little strong. Cheesecake and tiramisu were delicious. The service was great but hit a slow spot at the end when we needed to get to the Ferguson for a 730 pm show. We enjoyed ourselves, food was great overall and we will definitely be back
The room we were in was way toooo hot which made us uncomfortable in eating.
The steaks were average for a high end priced steak house. They had little or no taste to them. Our waitress informed us she was just coming back from maternity leave and was having trouble remembering things.
Would not go back.
Overall great experience - glad we had time to visit before the show..
