    Really neat atmosphere. Most of the food was great. The steaks are choice beef so not the best quality of beef for the price you pay but they were cooked to the right temperature. Lobster was huge and very good as well as the scallops.

    We had a great time at Vernon's Speakeasy! The allure of needing a secret password to enter this clandestine place, then having the rules explained by a fellow in period dress from the 20's, along with the ambience and the live music, all added up to a wonderfully unique dining experience. I loved the tiny cordless lamps on each table; for those with imperfect vision, one can move the lamp closer for reading, or change the intensity - this enhanced the look of the dining rooms, while allowing low-vision patrons to see better. Food and drinks were exquisitely prepared. Our waiter was superb.

    We knew the menu was over priced prior to making the reservation. It was our expectation to enjoy the "speak easy" experience to justify the the inflated costs. To be honest, the first impressions were good as we entered the restaurant section. However, we were taken to a side room that was devoid of much of anything... Simple overflow. I would have walked away then however my wife favored staying to enjoy the evening. The food was good, not great. We will not be back.

    Vernon’s is our destination for special occasions. The tables are private and quiet. The service is attentive. The wine list is large with interesting wine we like. On this occasion the food was not up their usual. We ordered a special diner for two which included a tomahawk steak and lobster tail. The steak was tasteless. We will return but stick with the steak off the menu.

    Wonderful food and great service. Wasn’t a fan of the table/room we were sat at. It was insanely quiet (with only two other couples) and for half our meal we could only hear the table talking behind us. What I was hopefully would be an intimate date, felt like I couldn’t talk to my partner without the rest of the room being a part of our conversation. Not sure if I need to request seating in the future (this was our first time) but honestly the food was not worth feeling like I was seated with strangers, while on a date. Super awkward for the first HOUR of our time there.

    We had a very nice time at Vernon’s. The food was good and the drinks were yummy. Our service was very good and the waitstaff was kind. We enjoyed the scallops, filet mignon, and Los Ranchos steak. Compared to other fine dining restaurants we’ve been to such as Ten 3 and Farm and Table this restaurant was good. Probably in our top five.

    This was our first time to Vernon's and it most definitley won't be our last. Such a cool restaurant! From the moment you get let inside to dessert was amazing. Sean took the best care of us and we would highly recommend him if you can request someone. The food was nothing short of amazing. I got the dry aged steak and my wife got the bone in ribeye. Both were cooked to exactly what we ordered (med rare) I can't express how happy we were with Vernon's. Can't wait to go back.

    Truly a memorable experience starting with the door knock. My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent. I had a bone-in filet and my wife had beef short ribs. Cocktails were on point as well. Vernon's has a great atmosphere for a nice dinner for two. Our server (Joshua) was very attentive but not overbearing, he had great suggestions and provided Great customer service. We had such a good time!

    Hello I ordered the wedge salad and it was extremely overdressed We also had the risotto and it was not good. The scallops and crab cake apps were outstanding. Odd and disappointing my boss picked up a portion of the bill and his wife received email communication regarding your restaurant- how rude! I made the reservation and she had no reason to be solicited- she was NOT even present with us or in the state! Our server was nice and kept the night interesting I would maybe return but nothing made it memorable enough to have too. In fact I asked if there was a coat check only to see my coat hanging by the front door- anyone could have walked off with it!

    The price for a couple for this holiday was $350 which is reasonable for a limited menu with full courses of appetizers, soup/salad, entree, and dessert. However, the food itself was so-so. The bone marrow was overcooked and the main entree sides were just OK. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and the dessert was great! You're paying for the name and the ambiance, but for the price, we expected more especially considering the other great meals we've had in the past here.

    The ambiance, uniqueness, and staff were excellent. The appetizers of crab cakes and pork belly were superb. Unfortunately the main course which was their special lobster tail were tasteless and very chewy almost like octopus. For the cost of this main course, it was very disappointing. I'm sure this was just an isolated problem with the lobster.

    This was not one of the better experiences we had here. The crabcakes were delicious. However, the salmon and lobster were way overdone, and the steak was under done. It was definitely not worth the money we paid for it. Our server however was great and very attentive
