Food and Service were great. We were seated in the bar area. Too crowed and very noisy. The booth area is much better but fills up early. I would recommend early or late unless you want the bar seine.

My husband & I have been dining at the Quiet Woman for nearly 40 years and we’re never disappointed. The warm cozy atmosphere draws us when we crave a delicious steak or burger. The restaurant is tastefully decorated now for the Xmas holiday. We were put off by our server this last Sat. She had absolutely NO personality & never once smiled. We felt she wanted to turn the table over right away. But, we’ll be back!

Early evening meal at the Quiet Woman. Nice Christmas decor, relatively quiet booth. Two had the swordfish, which was outstanding. Third had the lamb chops, similarly very good.Fourth has the ahi tuna, very nicely prepared. Shared a pumpkin pie. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

We do a lot of entertaining and eating in the “fine dining” venues. This was our first time at Quiet Woman. It won’t be the last! We had the seafood cocktail and mussels appetizers. The mussels were the only disappointment of the night. They were the smallest I’d ever seen. Like small clams. I had the short ribs. Which were melt in your mouth perfection. Everyone else at the table thought their plates were excellent. Filet, rib eye and scallops entrees. Good wine list, Great service and a fun ambiance. We felt the price was on point with the delivery.

Our first time eating here and we were so impressed. I had the short ribs (superb) and my husband had the pork chop. Both were outstanding! We are itching to go back!!!

We have never had the roast chicken piccata and it was some of the best chicken we have ever had. It was very moist and came with wonderful small mushrooms and rice. Another person in our party got swordfish tacos and he loved them. It’s a great neighborhood restaurant!

I have always liked the QW but this time our hostess/waitress was OK but not terribly responsive. I have never had her before and I was left without an offer of a beverage. Then when she refilled it, it was incorrect. In addition, she got my friend’s meal wrong. However, I will cintura going as my husband and I really like the restaurant.

Haven't been here in quite some time and wanted to try it again 'for old times' sake'. It's beautiful on the inside-redone since the '90's. The ambiance and atmosphere were exceptional. The food was really delicious and priced for the area. But, it was clear that the 'regulars' were afforded more attention. We would have preferred that our server - or someone - would have come by the table more regularly. The host did, however, apologize after we were first seated, for not acknowledging us and seating us when we walked in because he 'thought you were with another party'. Anyway, would I recommend this place? Yes, absolutely. But be prepared for second level service if you're not someone that frequents the place regularly.

We had a very snippy waitress, don’t remember her name and our garlic bread was burnt and the seafood bisque had very little seafood in it. It wasn’t QWs usual service and food.

The dinner was excellent, particularly the T-Bone and Salmon. I love the lazy-susan you get with the salad, its like your own salad bar. Also best garlic bread of life. We ordered a dozen oysters as an appetizer but they had gone off/spoiled. They were kind enough to take these off the bill so no hard feelings and no one got violently ill. Service was a little slow but they were very busy as was Friday night at 5:30.
