Great place for my aunt and her four nieces to meet for dinner while she is in town. Food ( lobster bisque, farfalle, lighthouse salad and more) and drinks were delicious. We had a lot of catching up to do and we were never rushed to get us out of there though it was a busy Friday night. I highly recommend The Turf Room!

We celebrated two anniversaries and had an absolutely lovely time! Always a great experience at the Turf Room. Our waitress was a doll and they even treated us to desserts for the occasion. Love the surprise Chef's tasting appetizer - ours was a cauliflower puree with peppers & pickled onion. The ambiance is perfect for most occasions - very intimate, very distinct. Highly recommended!

We had to eat and run however the food and beverages were excellent. We asked to be in and out in an hour, due to theatre, and staff were all hands on deck to find out what we liked/wanted, worked to meet our needs quickly without haste, and every action they took was pleasant and peaceful even as they did things faster to meet our schedule. We also were treated to a chef's surprise as the waiter brought us a "tasting" based on chef's ideas and items available that evening. It was delightful and is one of the reasons we'd go back sooner. Loved the Wine Bar room as it was quieter than main restaurant.

Warm and inviting ambiance
Knowledgeable, friendly, professional service
Very creative and skillfully crafted cocktails; excellent options for “call” brands of whiskey, Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Rum
Large wine list with clear, helpful descriptions and excellent wines across a broad price spectrum
Great beer list including rotating craft / artisanal beer list NOT dominated by acrid Overhopped IPAs.

The BEST pork shank I have ever had. And Im a shank guy. Menu teems with delicious sounding items.

This was my first visit to the Turf Room. Our server was outstanding! Very friendly, smiling, funny, and knowledgable about the menu. It was difficult to decide between a few different things, so I required her assistance... lol.... The meal was very good. The only thing I didn't really care for was the side portioning and price. If you wanted to get a side of asparagus the server informed me that it would be $14. I'm assuming you get a ton of it. So I opted for the broccolini which was only $7. It still a huge portion. Not sure if the sides are supposed to be family style, but there was definitely enough for 2-3 people. Aside from the sides.... everything was amazing. They have some great fireplaces there as well. Definitely worth checking out.

Food was good. Ordered carpaccio as appetizer and was petty good. House salad was okay, too much onion for me and didn't have much in the salad. Ordered the seabass which was delicious. Our server nick was good but I was expecting for him to highlight the menu for me. As a server, I expect other servers to guide me through the menu even if just slightly...Maybe recommend a few favorites with detail. It was only my 2nd time there and everything sounded good but a bit of guidance would have madey experience that much better. I will return in the future.

Outstanding - my fifth time here and never disappoints. The waiter recommended the Mexico City Pork Shank and he didn't miss - what an amazing entrée! It paired very well with my Oktoberfest beer selections. And always, the Goat cheesecake is a must for dessert. Best cheesecake I've ever had in my life and I'm a cheesecake snob.

I have heard so many great things about this restaurant and was excited to try it. My son had the filet and it was excellent. The rest of the food was just ok. I had a pasta dish the waiter recommended and it was really uninspired. The wait staff was very nice but stretched way too thin. I’ll try another place next time.

We came to grab dinner after a play at the Parmount. Food was very tasty but somewhat limited options for a late dinner since we didn't want a huge meal. Had to wait several minutes before anyone came to the hostess area to greet us. She didn't look up our reservation even though I said we had made one on Open Table so we received an email indicating that we had cancelled our reservation.

We have been to the Turf Room on several occasions, but it had been a while. We ate outside by the fireplace with friends and it was a wonderful atmosphere to sit and talk. However, we felt like the food and drinks were way overpriced and that the menu was just trying too hard to be avant-garde. Our waiter was inattentive and couldn’t look us in the eye when talking with us. The Turf Room would be better if it quit trying so hard to be a fancy restaurant and just made quality food at reasonable prices.
