It was a bit too pricy, and the fixed menu did not meet fully my expectation. The dessert was tasteless and dry (chocolate cake with cherry coolie sauce).

Excellent food in a fine dining atmosphere. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. The breads and honey butter were a great start. The french onion soup was tasty and rich. The filet mignon was extremely tender and perfectly cooked. The deserts were well crafted and a great finish to the meal. This was our 4th time here and we recommend it for any occasion.

The atmosphere at Schlesinger's is very well done: classy without feeling pretentious. The food is outstanding, although significantly overpriced. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous... and slow. I realize that the atmosphere and food are meant to be enjoyed without feeling rushed, but waiting several minutes at a time for our waiter to refill our beverages or take our dirty dishes went beyond "relaxed" into "annoying". I would definitely return, but only for a very special occasion, due to the cost, and hope that we had better luck with service.

Schlessingers never disappoints. The service is wonderful and the food, always consistent, always really good! Steve was our server, and he was professional but friendly and knew the menu well.

My fiancé and I were celebrating her birthday. We were there at 5:30 so the crowd had not arrived yet. We were surprised with restaurant week as we did not know they were participating this evening. That always helps lower the bill. We both ordered the beef medallions with shrimp, sausage soup and ice cream for dessert. We were served quickly and we didn't have to ask for anything. The meal was outstanding. The temperature of the food was just right and everything was cooked as ordered. I would recommend Schlesinger's for whatever your special evening is or just go for brunch after church.

This was my first visit and first impressions are everything. From the hostess to the waitress to the manager asking if we were enjoying our meal, great from start to finish. I took my wife here for her birthday we had the Sunday brunch. The food was excellent probably one of the best buffets I have seen in a while with the exception of Captain Georges. The Jazz Guitarist was a nice touch. We will be back in March with a friend who is retiring, looking forward to it.

Great experience, I went to Schlesinger’s Chop House for my girlfriend’s birthday and our 4 month anniversary. We got seated in less than 10 mins at a nice booth facing a window. The bread was fantastic and the chips that also came with the bread was a huge hit! We both loved them. Our server Brittany, was very nice and polite. Great server overall. I just wished I wasn’t a broke college student so I could’ve tipped her more without going bankrupt haha. Table was nice and fancy, lighting was perfect. There was almost every table full today, but it didn’t even feel like it was that crowded at all. It felt very spaced out. We order 2 steaks, my girlfriend bought their 12oz filet mignon and I got their 24oz Porterhouse. Both were very good, but the filet mignon was AMAZING. I was able to try just a couple bites and I was in heaven. Cooked to perfection. Then for dessert we got their Creme brûlée and it was very great. Overall it cost $138 including tip, but my girlfriend was happy so it was definitely worth it. We will definitely be looking into going here another day (once one of us has the money to pay for it haha).
