    Unrushed dinner. Good service. My fish was good, but warm not hot. Steaks were a little overcooked but still excellent. Roasted Brussels sprouts could be crispier.

    The food and service were both very good. We had a very enjoyable experience. One suggestion is to get rid of the 3% service fee. Yes, it was removed upon request but that is an awkward situation. If the restaurant needs more revenue then build it into the price not hide it on the bill to be seen only at the end.

    We went on Thanksgiving to celebrate my mother’s birthday and our server felt very distant due to it being close to the end of the evening. He got our side order wrong in addition to one of the steak temperatures. The food was very good as we had the seafood tower to start and then each of us had a combination plate. Service and gracious hospitality are what really make the experience, and our server did seem to have any of that going for him to make our night memorable.

    We weren’t there an hour. We ordered cocktail. 3 minutes later are food was in front of us. The food was good. But you could tell it was sitting, it wasn’t hot. We ordered the Turkey dinner. The experience for 150.00 for 2 was disappointing.

    Our waiter was attentive without being overwhelming. The food was, as always, very good. We went for Thanksgiving, which has become a tradition for us. That way, those who love traditional Thanksgiving food can order it, while the others of us who prefer seafood to anything, can have that too.

    Dined on Thanksgiving 2022. Disappointed they didn't have a buffet but we did enjoy our meal. Cocktails were good. The clam chowder we felt was too thick but good flavor.

    Amazing menu and the best oysters ever ! The ambience is so rich and just a gorgeous dining room. Seafood was all so fresh but I recommend the steaks too ! You don't have to train the bartenders there ....order a dirty martini and they "get it "!! Cool place for sure !

    I didn't feel the quality met the price point. I had the Nantucket scallops previously and was looking forward to having them again. They were good, but not as good as before. Service was lacking, sat with our empty plates for quite some time. Spending $200 on salads, one app, one dinner, two sides and a drink each is steep to never be asked if I needed a new drink.

    My husband had the halibut with pumpkin seed crusted. The flavor was good but the fish was overcooked. I had the club room combination Petite filet, garlic shrimp, george’s bank sea scallops, lemon butter. This dish was excellent except the sea scallops was to salty. The oysters Rockefeller was excellent!

    The food and service were great. However, I noted in the reservation that it was our 50th Anniversary, and no one acknowledged it. It’s now a rarity, when a restaurant actually pays attention to it. Why bother asking on the site? It’s for not.

    When is the 3% surcharge coming to an end? Server was attentive but didn’t bring us lemons when we asked for them. Seemed like they were in a rush to get us out of there. Never had a bad food experience at a lettuce entertain you restaurant but I must say that my Parmesan crusted haddock was subpar.

    Kind of blah. Disinterested server-seems like they’re having an issue getting good help. Food portions clearly shrinking vs last visit. Asked if it was a special occasion when making reservation, but it was not acknowledged. Have noticed this trend at LEY restaurants in the last 6 months.

Irving made our special night out one of the best ever with his amazing service and spot-on recommendations. Thank you Shaw’s and thank you Irving and the incredible staff at Shaw’s Schaumburg!
