Our Steak Oscar / Filet Mignon / Grilled Marinated Portabella / Lump Crabmeat / Asparagus / Hollandaise
Exceptional steaks, reminds me of Morton’s in Chicago. We alerted our server that we had a concert and needed to leave at a certain time. She was extremely efficient and made sure we were out on time. Highly recommend.
Great as always! I have been there 3 times and each time the food is spot on. The service is spot on.
Highly recommend. You get what you pay for.
Excellent service, ambiance and food presentation. The server and manager were very attentive.
This was an anniversary dinner and it was excellent as always in all respects. Best local restaurant for fine dining.
I had a business lunch there yesterday. The choices on the menu are excellent and with many unique items (not the same ole same ole). Each of our meals was prepared to perfection. I highly recommend them.
Excelant food Michelle was our server and was very friendly and helpfull. Service was excellant steaks done to perfection. A little pricey but well worth it
Excellent meal, ambiance, and service. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.
The waitress nails were dirty. Which took my appetite away. I would have enjoyed it much better if that wasn’t the case. The steaks were excellent and ambience was very good.
We love this place. We come here almost every year on our anniversary! The wait staff is amazing and the food is always excellent! It is a pricey restaurant but WELL worth the money.
This is one of my all time favorite places in Newport News. Used to only come on special occasions until I found and tried the bar menu. The items are tasty and the servings are not as big as the main restaurant. The prime rib sandwich is awesome and the fries are the best. The seafood nachos are shareable or you can make a meal off of them. Ceasar salad with blacken chicken is a great choice too. Wine pours are generous and always a great selection. If you're looking for something special, you can't go wrong with the steak au poivre -- with a filet. The lemon cake martini is great for dessert as is the chocolate lava cake. Remember to order that when you first arrive, it takes a few minutes.
Food was wonderful as it always is. Food and service are consistently great . We always have dinner here for special occasions.
We enjoyed two of the Restaurant Week/Month lunch specials. The salads were gorgeous and so delicious! My friend's mahi-mahi looked great and it was very tasty. My cottage pie was excellent and large enough to take some home!
Service could have been better. Shouldn't have to ask for refills each time.
Great food and prompt service....what better can you ask for during these times of limited places to dine-in. I'll be back.
Nice place, but execution wasn’t quite perfect (if I’m being picky). Oddly warm where we were sitting to an uncomfortable degree. Overall still a good place worth visiting.
The food is excellent and lunch is very affordable. My group of 4 was delighted with the choices and the service.
Great bread, fish dish and Irish coffee. Excellent service.
Elena was awesome very knowledgeable about the menu & made our anniversary soo special. The food was excellent,, came out hot & to our requests. Cant wait to return!
The past two dinning experiences at Schlesinger’s has been subpar. The food remains some of the best in the area but the level of service and management has declined. This is Schlesinger’s Chop House, not Texas Road House. I expect a higher level of everything when dinning here. When enjoying a nice dinning experience the food is only half of the entire experience. From the time you enter to the time you leave Schlesinger’s you should experience the highest level of competence and recently they have slipped. I sincerely hope they make a shift back to their original impeccable standards. Richard
Thank you for your post here on Open Table. I am sorry to hear you found your service anything other than perfection. If ever such an anomaly occurs, we hope you'll let us know when you are here. We will do all we can to ensure we exceed your expectations. I hope to learn more detail about your visit; I have left a voice mail message and hope to hear from you soon.
Great first time experience! Can’t wait to enjoy many more !
As usual, Schlesinger's is a great place to have a business lunch. Especially since COVID, the additional social distancing ensures that the dining room is somewhat quieter which is nice when conversing with colleagues. The service is ALWAYS good. The food is good although on this trip, my crab cake was much saltier than usual and I didn't love it. The other attendees, however, raved about their delicious entrees. So, in short: Schlesinger's for lunch? YES PLEASE!
another great evening from the time we were seating to a smiling good night.. Everything was super..
Experience was perfect. That’s to William for the great service!
The shrimp appetizer was a generous portion, my signature fila steak was cooked to perfection. The restaurant made feel comfortable and the atmosphere was very friendly. The food was not over price.
Service was a bit "off" from previous experiences. Not timely, seemed awkward, had to ask for things too many times.
Also, onion soup was just "OK"... too salty.
Thank you for your post. I am glad to see you enjoy us regularly & are familiar with our standards. I am sorry to hear you found your soup & service anything other than perfection. If ever such an anomaly occurs, we hope you will let us know when you are here. We will do all we can, up to replacing any item if need be, to ensure you leave us happy. I have spoken to your server as well with regard to attention to detail. I am assured she will be more attentive moving forward.
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. I will be back.
Our seating area was extremely hot. Filet was just ok. Scallops were delicious. Definitely over priced.
Great food , great service a overall delight
Our waiter Billy was phenomenal and we took advantage of the Restaurant week specials. Cannot say enough good things about Schlesingers.
Once again we had an excellent meal. However, we were seated near the kitchen and when a waitstaff entered they would say "corner". During a busy lunch hour, my companion and I found this annoying. While I understand why this might be necessary, I think a restaurant of this caliber could find a better way.
It was for my wife's birthday and the food and service was as always outstanding.
I love this restaurant, it is absolutely one of our favorites wether it's restaurant week or not. Unfortunately this time our waitress Dee Dee was not attentive at all. I'm not sure if she was overwhelmed or just tiered( it was the end of the night) but I am huge on customer service and tip accordingly. Needless to say I was totally disappointed in the lack of customer service this time.
Was a great visit given our schedule lunch out is a treat.. This was a real treat,, Super greeting, table as requested, and all was really good.. Our Server William was excellent. Many Thanks Deb and Bill Schmidt
A friend, who had never been to Schlesinger’s, and I came for lunch. I ordered the mixed fruit salad with grilled shrimp and she had the Penne Pomodoro. Not only was the food outstanding, but the service was better than I’ve experienced in a very long time. Elena took the time to stop by our table several times before she actually took our order, she also made sure that the wine we ordered was to our liking, including giving my friend a sample of the wine she ended up purchasing. A manager stopped by to make sure we enjoyed our experience. We left with half of our food since the portions were more than we could eat for lunch. Will we be back? The answer is a definitive YES!
Justin was Great!!Thank you for the great service.
Food was absolutely worth the price. We will be coming back for special occasions and look forward to trying more of the menu out.
Was an overall great evening and great visit... Much needed and felt appreciated by the staff, other looked to be enjoying themselves as well.. Deb and Bill Schmidt, Wmsburg
There is never any doubt as to the consistency of the experience. Optimal in all areas.
Cowboy steKs were good, vegetables okay and dessert awesome.
