This was my second time at Vernon's and will not be the last. Thank you for the outstanding experience. The staff and the food were amazing.

First time patrons and my wife and I were very pleased. The music and food were great. When booking the reservation some of the pictures made us think we maybe needed to dress the part. So glad we didn’t as the only person dressed for the era was the man at the door. We will definitely be going again.

We loved the food and ambiance. Everything we tried, including the seasonal old fashioned with smoked cedar, was delicious.

As usual, great experience. The speakeasy theme plays well. The setting is intimate. The live music is always good. The staff are on point and great at what they do. Oh, the food? Best steak in town.

As always, the food was supurb, the ambiance was romantic, and it was quiet enough that we could whisper sweet nothings across the table with ease.

First time visiting. Atmosphere is great, the whole theme is carried out very well and fun to experience. It is a little pricey. My steak was not very tender and the potatoes were dry. I have and a better steak at other restaurants for the same price or less expensive. The green beans were great as well as the appetizer. The waiter never brought our bread to the table. I would try it again but would try another item as the steaks just aren’t all that!

Very disappointed in the quality of the steak. It was the worst steak I ever had. Baked potato was over cooked. Friends had recommended Vernon’s.

Overall great! Menu was not clear on additions was very surprised with bill for 2 people. Will not be adding extra food to entrees! Bill was $249.00 for 2 people! Ridiculous for 2 people who shared an entree. Very disappointing.

This was the perfect spot to take a special lady out for a first time out together.
The atmosphere was perfect, steak was great and there was no issue with working around her dairy problems.
Definitely a great experience and I can only imagine very similar to actual speak easy places in the past, except with better food.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 12th anniversary here, and overall, it was an average experience. The service was excellent, and the staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food was flavorful, but a tad overpriced for the quality. The biggest shortfall is how dated and dingy the place feels. I completely understand the ambiance they are attempting to achieve, but the interior finishes are in desperate need of a refresh.

Service was on point. Carlos the busser was very professional... he should be a server or more. The filet was amazing. My guests had a great time. The price is high... but i understand the “anbiance”. $20 less for steak would drive in a lot more business.

Top of the line ambiance, food, and service - - with an unusual and interesting twist! The ONLY thing I would improve is the price (high), though this is really a special occasion place and not somewhere you'd normally go every week. Our only other complaint is that the restaurant has a very clear (and elegant) dress code; however, the parties around us quasi-ruined the mood by dressing very casually (like, cut-up jeans casual). It would be nice if they enforced this at the door to preserve the environment for those who comply, but this is really the fault of the folks who ignore the request. Overall, this has become our favorite go-to place for all of our special occasions. Food and portions were amazing and the service was great! Thanks, Vernon's!

Vernon's does it again ! A wonderful evening out with family including perfectly made cocktails, delicious food, nice wine list and yummy desserts to end a perfect evening. Appetizers were amazing, steaks were cooked perfectly. The service was spot on, just enough to make you feel cared for and no hovering over you. Taking your time to enjoy the Vernon's experience is key. When was the last time you had a pleasant 2 hour dinning experience, time well spent with family and friends. Vernon's will not rush you and do not rush yourself, enjoy. You will spend a little for the experience but well worth the cost. ENJOY !

We weren't really happy with where the hostess seated us. We were in a drafty area near the door away from everyone else in the main dining room. We felt like the rift-raft.

A second note, I had the special, the filet Mignon with lobster tail and although the meal was very good, I felt $40.00 for a very small tail was too much. Next time I'll stick with the steak and I wont hesitate to ask to be seated elsewhere if we're not happy.
