Outstanding food and service. Too much char on the beef. Everything else was wonderful. The list of exotic whiskeys were anything but and over priced, however.

Food and service were excellent. Definitely an upscale restaurant so be prepared to pay higher prices but it was worth it.

from the cordial greeting to the dedicated service (from all servers) we were treated with utmost respect. The food was exceptional and just as recommended. We received a very pleasant night of enjoyment and wonderful food to go along with it. Thank you for all you do.

Dined at Cadwalladers this past Friday night, requested and got a great booth. They immediately descended on the table ---one duty after another---- began by changing our napkins to black because of our clothing----nice!!! (The immediate attention at the table is always a defining sign, and it's what happens there. It's definitely a reflection of the awesome owner in doing what is right and appropriate for his guests.) Next come the drinks, listening to specials (Wow), and then a few minutes of relaxing and soaking in the soothing and beautiful atmosphere.... a few precious moments to talk and reflect. After a long day, it's time to sigh and just chill---can't think of a better spot. Next comes the delicious food. When the owner dropped by after our entrees were brought out, he looked down at my Filet Mignon and I said, to him "So, how beautiful is that?" He smiled & responded, "It's perfect of course." And it was. That sums up Cadwalladers. Food is awesome, as good as it gets in Augusta and imho, the BEST of Augusta!!! Varied menu is amazing, food interesting & creative, always appealing in presentation, served hot, and finally, down-right delicious. Wife couldn't resist and also got the Filet, but the smaller one. Side items are consistently great, too, always changing as to what's fresh, and always complementing the entree. A lot of thought goes into a process when it's done right, and it shows. Wine list is uniquely not run-of-the-mill, but well-researched and proudly displayed. Another Wow. When all is said and done, Cadwalladers is the quintessential "neighborhood gem" type of place, and when I see that phrase as one of the options to choose for a restaurant review, my first thought is of Cadwalladers. Another wonderful evening, already looking forward to the next. Great job, and sincere kudos to the staff and owner Colden. Don't ever change your concept and execution....it is as you yourself describe, "perfect".

Excellent food, not your usual fare and really interesting flavors/textures/presentation. We'll go again, but not very often due to the price.

We have eaten there several times in the past and the food was always perfect. This time we both ordered our filets medium-rare. Mine was just pink in the very middle (Medium -well?) and the other filet was rare. The flavor was great and we aren't that picky about the cooking unless they ruined it by cooking well done!! But if you are picky about preparation, you might caution the server so the cook pays attention to the preparation.

Know about this place for the last 12 years but never tried it. Looking for someplace new for dinner and thought about it, so I tried it. Excellent all the way around. Haven’t been anywhere were the owner comes around and talks to you, brings food out of the kitchen himself.Iwill definitely go back.

The service was top notch and food amazing!! The polento with shrimp and scallops was amazing! They even read my request that it was my husband Birthday and wrote Happy Birthday on his dessert plate!! From the outside of the restaurant you wonder about the experience, but I recommend you walk in! Hidden gem..

Made our reservation through Open Table. We arrived 15 minutes early, but were promptly greeted and seated. Staff was excellent and attentive. Really worked to ensure we had a great experience, even writing Happy Anniversary on our dessert plate. Drinks were fantastic and the food was incredible. We ordered the specials along with a couple regular menu items. Dishes were flavorful and cooked to perfection. Dessert was fabulous. Only regret we have is that we didn't try this restaurant sooner. Already have plans to come back.

My meal was okay but for the price I thought the taste would WOW me. It did not.
I had to add salt just to have a flavor on my meat and the sauce was tasteless too.
Vegetables were nice. My potato side was bland also. I was sooo looking forward
to my meal and I feel cheated. I used to love this place. The meat was very tender.
