    Experience was frustrating! They were out of the roasted vegetables that typically came with the salmon. The waitress did not tell me this until after I had ordered. The chef offered me cooked spinach as an alternative. I asked if I could have side salad instead because I do not like spinach. The waitress came back and said the chef would give me roasted squash and peppers but if I wanted a salad it would be an extra $10. It was ridiculous that the chef wanted to charge me $10 for an alternative. After multiple back and forth the chef finally agreed to give me a side salad at no charge. I finally had to tell the waitress that if I was going to be charged extra for a side salad I would just eat somewhere else.

    It’s a nice place but services staff I think was new as drinks needed refilled and it had to be up to the manager to come check on us to make sure we were taken care of Food was good but service has room for improvement.

    This was our first time at Spoke & Steele; all three in our party got the special (pork chop with a dollop of horseradish applesauce, potato purée & greens with braised cabbage - very good 😋. The regular menu is limited but we could have found something on it too. Good service & nice atmosphere.

    Great food and service but very loud! Not great for a date night. It was very pricey to be sitting with a very noisey bar. Typically enjoy sitting in the bar but when you booked a table being placed in the noise bar was not ideal.

    Many other options nearby that arr better suited for an evening out. Server did the best with what she could. Food was unacceptable, drinks were incorrect, management was a distraction. Given the hotel its located in we expected a much higher level and were incredibly disappointed.

    Ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer. The flavor was very good but the sprouts were large & very tough. Could not eat most of them. Our server offered to bring us another serving or take it off our bill but we declined. The rest of the meal was excellent (rack of lamb & tuna tartare).

    Very disappointing. Yes, the whole world is short staffed. 3- minutes for a drink because the bartender backed up and the manager just walking around not knowing how to actually help and expedite. The wait staff kept looking down and not making eye contact - it was much easier to apologize. Management had no understanding of what it takes. Yes - in the food industry for years and I understand operations. With all the options, not on my list to recommend.

    They took my reservation for 1245 even though the kitchen closed at 1pm. We got there on time and we were very rushed to order and it looked like they threw together the leftovers to give us. Not very pleased with that considering the price I paid.

    The charcuterie board was a disappointment. There was only one meat, and a minuscule amount of it. Just 2 average cheeses. Big pile of mustard and some dried cranberries and raisins. Not much else. Drinks were good. Service good.

    Came here for Valentine’s Day expecting a top notch experience. Decided to get the filet mignon, which I have never been disappointed with at any restaurant, and was deeply disappointed. It looked like it had been tenderized to death before cooking, and was served to me nearly medium well when I requested medium rare. The chef should not have served that cut of meat to anyone in my opinion. With St Elmo’s being right next door, you’d think they would have gotten a better meat supplier to maintain the same level of excellence, but obviously not. Don’t intend to come back here other than for coctails, if that.

    First time to dine here, mediocre experience but Katie was an exceptional waiter. Unfortunately the food was left something to be desired. First off the warm spinach salad offered on the menu is no longer offered apparently. So why is it in the menu then? And arugula salad was served in its place. Arugula is a lettuce my wife does not like so that was sent back and replaced with a cold spinach salad…… What? Not good. My wife ordered the filet mignon for dinner and it was very underwhelming. For $54.00 not a great cut of meat (definitely not prime) and it was undercooked. Disappointed in Marriott on this one, they usually do a better job, we won’t be going back.
