The steak my boyfriend had was tough and had a lot of fat in it. It was the steak special for the day. I would recommend sticking with the filet on the menu. The dessert was great and the service was ok. Like I said nothing special.

Not a regular, since an out of towner. But that said, frequent trips to Springfield have included visits to Sebastian's over the years. Think it's time to try new places. Old atmosphere, too loud music, inconsistent service (although our server tried her best), and just ok food make it time to rethink. Several years ago it was a "can't wait to go" place but now it's just a yawner.

Sebastian's never disappoints! The lobster bisque soup was great and our entrees were very tasty. Good value for the quality and quantity.

I made online reservations 6:40 for a 7:00 seating. In my online reservation I requested two glasses of champagne be waiting on our table. The staff did not disappoint. The champagne was waiting and I had a wonderful dinner with my wife. The food was fantastic and the service attentive.

We choose Sebastian's to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We would not have gone there had we not had a gift card. The service was very good and so was the food, but we felt that the meal was over priced. Probably won't be going back, which is a shame because the place is very romantic.

We sat in a back booth… enjoyed the privacy and romance. Great martini menu- loved the Bellini martini. I had a beet salad that was delicious, my partner had the caprese which was artfully layered with asparagus. We shared the sesame tuna dinner. Also delicious. I would recommend, and I would go again!

Can't explain in 27 characters or less how horrible this restaurant experience was. Given more space I could explain.

It was nice, but for a nearly $200 meal for 2 I just expected more. I'll go back but it will be awhile.

Quiet and relaxed, this venue was a special treat. The presentation of the items served was lovely. A particular hit was the sesame crusted Ahi tuna. In the future, I will avoid the fried foods (appetizer sampler), but the rest for our party of five was creative and delicious! We will be back.

I had reserved a table for 2 from the online reservation option. I do not recall having an option when making the reservation to request a booth or table. Upon arriving with my date for my reservation (and I was early) I observed the restaurant was not at all busy and in fact there were at least 3 or 4 booths available. I requested a booth looking for a more romantic setting withh my date, and and was told the restaurant was "very busy" and the booths were reserved. Really? Anyway, I was seated at a nice table and throughout dinner I observed the same booths were never occupied. In fact, the restaurant did not seem busy at all.  I felt as if perhaps I didn't know the "right person" to get a booth.

Not sure about the food here. Reserved a table for valentines day. Arrived to find the restaurant extremely cramped due to the placement of extra tables to accommodate valentine diners. We were placed at the rear of the restaurant and had to squeeze past other couples already dinning to reach our table. When seated, we were so close to the table next to ours that it practically became one big picnic table experience. This may be fine for a work lunch but not for a romantic dinner date. There prices were high but that may be relative to the quality of the meal which we did not stick around to try. So maybe try this place on a normal night but avoid if a special holiday and you would like a quiet romantic dinner option.

To use the restroom guest were required to walk through a meeting with a projection screen in the direct path of the restrooms. There was no way to avoid this. Also water stain on ceiling, ripped and stained seat cushions. This does not say - fine dining. Also a hand written note on the door asked deliveries to be sent to another door.
