    Great Manhattans, good service, price is a little high. Had red trout with crawfish sauce which was superb and good price of $25. Husband had pepper steak and it was overcooked and not worth the $48 cost.

    This restaurant is in the historic Strater Hotel. The portions for our main entrees weren't overly large, but the sides were large enough to share. This place is all about ambiance. Food was average, but the wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

    It was nice…however we requested a window seat weeks ago and when arrived…no window seat available. There were very few people in the restaurant but the window seats were occupied. This impacted my overall review without a doubt on our special occasion

    Great location in the Statler Hotel, old time western decor, very good food and service. Our server, Rachel, was very attentive, knew the menu and had sampled most of the items. She suggested the Elk tenderloin and it was excellent, attractively plated and really prepared medium rare. The Chicken Saltimbocca was very good and the shared Saffron Risotto was perfect.

    The ribeye was good… at $60 is should be. The blue cornbread was awful - so dry! Desserts were just okay. The bread pudding was not good. For a $200 meal I expected better food and service.

    Traveling through and wanted a nice dinner at this fabulous old hotel. Another event was happening so our food was slow coming out. Ok but don’t ignore us! Drop off dishes and disappear. Asked for decaf tea and brought me black tea after we had finished eating. Food just okay. I do not think I got the steak I ordered. It was over salted/seasoned- maybe to cover the quality up? The soup was flavorless and the potatoes were heavy with garlic. Patient gone. Just paid bill and left.

    Very good service, server was very attentive,. They were out of the ribeye, which is what we had gone for. The calamari appetizer lacked flavor and was very chewy did not finish. The blue cornbread was very good the salad was good with the raspberry dressing. The brussels sprouts war season nicely but very tough and Chewy, did not finish.

    Great menu with gluten free options. Portions are large: appetizer (cornbread), we split a salad and it was like a normal portion for each of us. Entree's were la' carte so we ordered the risotto which enough for 4 people. Overall, great food and atmosphere is an historic hotel.

    Our server seemed like he had never waited tables before, got our orders wrong but never came back to check on us until it was time to pay, then he was gone with our cards for 30 minutes. My eggs over easy didn’t even have yolks in them. It was bizarre.

    First time visit and would not recommend. Meat was just meh, for cost I expected amazing flavors and texture. Pasta shade was good, should have just ordered that. First young man that helped was very friendly and went above expectations in offering a version of a cocktail and was very nice. Left underwhelmed and hungry after dropping almost $100.

    I made reservations for 15 min after they opened. It wasn’t busy at all so I thought everything would go smooth. We were sat down and waited over 10 minutes for a waiter while multiple people walked by looking at us. It took another 20 minutes to get a beer. The bread took forever to come out however I saw other tables around us getting it. The food came out and was delicious. I have no complaints there at all. Then we asked for the check and wait was another 25 min for our server to come get our card. The food was excellent however the service was horrible. I don’t know if I’ll be going back when I spent over $150 for horrible service.

    We loved when this restaraunt hired a new chef. We heard he was from Africa. The food was inventive and delicious! I suspect he is no longer in the kitchen. Hardly anything went well with our meal. Server didn't have a wine recommendation when asked. The Strater has two restaurants and a bar. Why only 4 beers on tap? Then they ran out of the beer I ordered. Now only 3 on tap. Server didn't ask if we wanted an appetizer or salads. Server didn't ask how well to cook salmon orders. Food was served cold -- potatoes and squash. Deserts were seriously disappointing. Bananas Foster is no longer prepared at the table, so when served (from the kitchen), the ice cream was melted. It was just a sloppy mess. There is no reason to go back with Seasons and Ken and Sue's just across the street. I will leave compliments to the bus boy. A young man that was polite and working his tail off.

    It took awhile to get the food after we ordered. I like restaurants that serve at least bread or just a little something to take the edge off while waiting. We weren't drinking so just sipping on ice tea for 30+ minutes diverted our experience away from relevant conversation to, "gee I'm hungry, when is the food going to get here?" Just a suggestion. Otherwise, when the food did come we found it very tasty and cooked to our liking.
