Excellent service. Enjoyed the soft jazz music. I gave the food four stars because: #1. There was a mistake in an ingredient in the omelet. #2. The 14 ounce Prime Rib was superb. Unfortunately, there were so few potatoes that there were barely enough to go with 1/3 of the prime rib. We brought the leftovers home and will add potatoes. That being said, everything was delicious and well-prepared.

Fun place, great service. Unfortunately my ribeye was tough, as was my husbands filet. The food was lukewarm when it got to table (the pat of butter they put on top of steak didn’t melt). That being said, the appetizer crab cakes were wonderful as were the wedge salad.

The food and service here is very good. The place is a little hokey and quite pricy. On a Thurs. night they were doing a land office business.

This was our first night out after being vaccinated. We were seated in a corner with no other diners visible. It didn't feel like we were out on the town. The food was delicious, but the experience was disappointing.

I’ve been going to your restaurant for many years and have to say this dining the worst ever. First I think that the French onion soup is the best I’ve ever had.except this time. I’ve been to five star restaurants in Dallas and Phoenix and none matches. It was Served in a plan round white bowl instead of the usual bowl with cheese running over the side without enough soup. Ordered prime rib with baked potato. Both were served cold. The butter didn’t melt on the potato. However our waiter Josh saved the night. Because of Josh I’ll be back I realize this is a hard time to be in the restaurant business but..........

Service was excellent. The ribeye steaks were, in our opinion poor at best. Thin to say the least, I should have sent mine back to be replaced. My wife’s ribeye was very stringy and difficult to cut, partially because hers was very rare, and a dull knife she asked to be replaced. Our server was simply the best.

Hands down the best restaurant I’ve ever been to! Already planning our 2nd trip. The noise level was very minimal, ambience was low lighting with candles at each table. The jazz music was off the charts, waiter was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when making decisions on menu. Best experience I have ever had and I cannot wait to return!

The service was exceptional, both of the individuals that looked after us were kind and attentive. I had a samurai cocktail that was a perfect balance of sweet and sour. The food was exquisite. I had the lamb chops and scallops, both were cooked to perfection. The wine sauce accompanying the lamb was beyond this world and each bite felt like it was melting into my taste buds. My companion was equally pleased with her choice of food and drink.

My wife and I visited Vernon’s this past Saturday and I have to say that I’ve never been unhappy on any of my visits. Service, staff and food were on point. I live in the east mountains and have many options of where to get a fine steak closer to home, but the drive is definitely worth it. Vernon’s will continue to be my number 1 choice for a wonderful steak dinner!
