Schlesinger's Chop House Ratings and Reviews
Always a Great meal!!! The food and the service are the best reasons to travel to Schlesinger's. I do not know how they train their servers to so consistently exceed expectations, but they always do. The crab cakes are spectacular and the Chicken Breast Milanese is my all-time favorite comfort food option. As they say, "it's all good."
It was our 50th wedding anniversary. We were treated like royalty. Victor, our waiter was very helpful with menu choices we made. This was our first visit so some explanation was needed. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. My wife had Schlesinger's special signature steak and I had the lobster tails. For starters we had shrimp cocktails which was a unique experience in eating. So spicy and tasty. We will definitely be returning to try some other menu item. What a great night.
We arrived and the hostess was so rude to us we ended up leaving the restaurant. She said the restaurant closed at 2:30 yet we had booked 2:30 reservations through Open Table. There were only two other tables with people yet she sat us by the kitchen. Then she preceded to yell loudly enough for the entire restaurant to hear as she told the people in the back, “Turn all your stuff back on. Guess you won’t be going home today. I’ll have to call the baby sitter...”. I have to tell you we were in town to visit our son at Fort Eustis for Thanksgiving and made reservations for that Friday. The restaurant looked nice but the lady was so rude we will never so back.
They are usually very consistent in excellent food and service. Friday night, 2 of the 3 steaks were not prepared to order- one had to be sent back. It took a long time to get that steak back out and it still was not really prepared correctly. The manager did comp desserts and was apologetic. Headed back for a business dinner this week, so hopefully this was a one time issue.
Schlesinger's is my VERY FAVORITE RESTAURANT!!! I absolutely LOVE THE FOOD THERE and the ambiance in this restaurant! The prime rib there is the best that I've ever tasted!!!!! Our family enjoys dining there in a group and for special events (like our birthdays!!) I would definitely recommend Schlesinger's to everyone. There's something on the menu everyone would enjoy, especially on the weekends!!!! 😀
This restaurant was absolutely phenomenal. Our waitress, Valerie, was absolutely amazing. I went here for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. From the customer service, to the food, it was a total experience. We live in Virginia Beach and it definitely was worth the drive. The manager came by several times to wish him a happy birthday and make sure we were happy with everything. I highly recommend this place. Words cannot express how special you made his day. Thank you guys so much, especially Valerie .
I have eaten at Schlesinger's on many occasions, but this was the first time for the Sunday Brunch. We were celebrating my wife's and one of her daughter's birthdays. The food and variety were terrific! In addition to fruit and breads, there was prime rib, omelets and waffle stations, eggs Schlesinger and desserts. A very pleasant dining experience.
The server was very attentive and handled a special request graciously --> serving a birthday cake requested by the daughter, which my wife had made and brought for the occasion.
We went there for our wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised by their three-course prix fixe dinners, so we both had the lobster tail and steak. Everything was excellent, and the amount of food was just right. They gave us a split of champagne after dinner to mark our anniversary, which I thought was just the right touch.
Schlesinger's has always try to maintain the appearance of a upscale, fine dining restaurant, and they can sometimes get close for dinner. However, in the case of brunch, they didn't quite stack up in terms of food quality in proportion to the price tag. For starters, it's a buffet, with a wide and sometimes perplexing choice of food for $26/ per person. No drinks included at all. Many of the choices seem disjointed for brunch and make you scratch your head as you're looking at them (steamed broccoli, a chocolate fountain, fudge, cheese tray with grapes, cheesecake bites, etc.). As for food quality, the only thing cooked to order was the omelet station, and the one I had was cooked well. Many of the things set up on the buffet seemed to be challenged to maintain temperature, and with the exception of the grits, were lukewarm at best. The bacon and sausage were cold, as were the potatoes. They had waffle irons there, but the waffles had already been cooked and were in a breadbasket. No one offered to cook any fresh ones, and they were cold as well. My wife tried the smoked salmon, and it wasn't good at all - had a spoiled taste. Our server was well intentioned and nice, but she seemed new and we had to wave her down for coffee and drink refills. My wife ordered a prosecco/champagne split and she was only brought the one glass, when there's usually close to two in an order of a split. She ordered a second and got the complete split. She was charged full price for both. Since the champagne was not very good quality, she asked them to add a splash of Chambord to her glass, but they put way too much in there. Probably for brunch, they don't have a bartender there who would know better. For two coffees, two champagnes, and two buffets, our bill before tip was $85. To be fair, we've had worst buffets, but at this price point, one would expect more out of Schlesinger's. We'd rather see less quantity and more focus on the quality.
My wife's steak was cooked perfectly and my seafood was excellent. Salads were fresh and tasty. Complimentary bread assortment was unique and very flavorful. Dessert was wonderful! Staff is very professional and friendly. High marks for service. I highly recommend!
We had an early Labor Day dinner. I had a glass of Chardonnay and my husband had a 50/50 martini made with Stoli and Tanqueray, we each had a salad. My caprese was delicious. He actually finished his and then finished mine. I had the steak frites and he had the seafood trio. Steak was great but I did not care for my frites. Hubby ate all of his and we both took home our leftover sides. My husband finished with coffee and cake. We had a BOGO so that saved a few dollars. All in all a great dinner. Would recommend this for people looking for a special date night.
The food was good, as always. The service was very disappointing. The waitress was not as attentive. It was 45 mins before we received our food. She disappeared and was not seen for a very long time. We asked for coffee, and that took forever as well. Our party arrived between 6 -630pm our food arrived 830. Not sure if the waitress was new??? She was polite, but the service was lacking.
