My fiancé and I got engaged directly after eating here. Pretty sure the Filet was why she said yes.

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.

Came for my birthday. I not been here in at least 10-12 years so I was nervous if it would be as good as I remembered and it was! Great food, and great kids menu.

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.

One of the best bands we have heard in a long time. Thank you for a great evening!

I haven't been to The Quiet Woman for a few years and was hoping that it was still fabulous. They didn't disappoint! The food and service was great. We started with the Ahi appetizer then shared the salmon and mahi which was grilled perfect. By the way, the cheese bread is my downfall... soooo good! Look forward to returning again soon!

We have been wanting to have a fine dining experience at the Quiet Woman for many years now. And it exceeded our expectations. It was a truly wonderful meal in a setting that took us back to a time when this kind of leisurely evening out was the norm. Quiet. Not rushed. Attentive service. An evening to remember. Thank yoU!

I hadn't been to the Quiet Woman in some time and was not disappointed with this visit either. We were greeted with a smiling face; seated immediately; she had several great suggestions and answered all our questions. The portion size was perfect for lunch and everyone said their food was delicious. They came back and filled our drinks often during our meal. Excellent service and excellent food.

Excellent and a very special for a fun night out or a special occasion.

We usually sit at the bar for dinner, occasionally at a table, but anywhere is just fine. Food is excellent and the drinks are even better.

What else could you ask for? Oh yes, and there is super entertainment on stage at the end of the week...

Best of the best!
