Food was really good but the main course arrived cold, which is kind of unexpected for this price point.

We have been here many times and always had a very good experience. However, there was a wedding dinner going on and the restaurant was obviously understaffed. Drinks were very watered down,
dinner itself was excellent but the service was incredibly slow. Waiter was very busy. It was obviously the kitchen. Coffee was terrible - very watered down, like the drinks. We have been coming to Queen's Landing for 24 years and this was our first bad experience. We'll chalk it up to understaffing and a busy night this time. Christmas decor is outstanding.

Went with 7 people for Sunday brunch buffet. Had a great table by the window and was set up for our group in advance, so no table moving was necessary. Food was great, server (Albert I think?) was very friendly and quick with serving beverages and clearing plates. Huge variety of fresh food for breakfast choices and lunch style choices. Both hot and cold, and great juices and coffee. Dessert table was small yet had many great options.

We purchased a $70 bottle of wine only to find out later the retail price is less that $15.00. Highway robbery and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

We used open table to make a reservation because we could not reach the Tiara by phone. Therefore our service was via Rose instead of Rudy (whom we usually request) because we had no opportunity to specify. She proved to be just as reliable in guiding us through the excellent choices that the Tiara offers. My wife chose the lobster / pasta and I chose the lamb saddle. Preparation and presentation were great for both.

Food was excellent! I had the lobster gnocchi, it was cooked to perfection. My husband and our neighbor friend had the 20oz. Ribeye, this was a very good size, almost too much. They said it was suburb! The somellier had some excellent suggestions for wine and was very personable. Sommelier and our waiter had excellent suggestions for wineries (Konzelman for lake view; Stratus for red wine) to try while we were in town and other restaurants (Angel Inn for late night cocktail) to try. Be prepared to spend some $$

Very empty on a Sat. night. Server knowledgeable but would vanish for long periods. Bread and appetizers were great, the rest of the food was not prepared well. Chicken very dry with no flavor in stuffing, ravioli and gnocchi over cooked, etc. In our group of 10 nobody thought it was good enough to visit again.

gnocchi with lobster : My lobster was not sweet and was slightly overcooked. The lobster was very generous, though, in spite of the fact that the feature was "gnocchi". The delicate lobster & gnocchi dish was overpowered by the tomato sauce which was for my taste very acidic. The amuse bouche
was a very skimpy version of a common snack...cucumbers & cream cheese. The wine was sent back and the wine steward admitted that it was off. The special surprise for our 50th anniversary was a nicely decorated platter containing 2 desserts (which we paid for ourselves) and ordered by the man & woman who were not the couple. No attempt was made to identify which couple was celebrating. My husband's lamb trio plate was very good. Another guest who ordered the trout dish found it very skimpy and overcooked although the risotto was very good.

My husband and I had a memorable dinner here to celebrate my birthday. Rudy, our waiter, could not have been more attentive. From the rose petals on our table, to the wine recommendations, to the perfect descriptions of menu options, to the wonderful dessert with candles to blow out...it all added up to the perfect romantic dinner celebration. You can tell that the waitstaff here truly loves their jobs as they go the extra mile! This restaurant has a beautiful view outside and lovely decor inside. We will definitely come here again.

Waitress very nice and pleasant. However they seems short staffed for the evening.
Food took too long to arrive, 40+min only ordered entree:
1. Pasta for my wife was dry
2. 20oz rib-eye was over cooked (order medium) dry, and burnt on one side and cool ie not hot
Complained and was given a re order which only took 5 min:
1. Pasta was the same dish no change
2. 20oz rib-eye looked like 10oz and again over cooked and dry.
All in all spoilt our 40th WA dinner evening.
Best thing about the food was the bread!

Came for the breakfast. Unfortunately the buffet was very dull. It took 3 staff to finally go get the chef to make us omlettes from the station. A lot of picked over food. Very disappointed. Was not told when booking that the brunch would have apparently been a better option.
