Steak was well seasoned and cooked to preferred doneness. Shellfish was delicious and not over cooked. Banana Fosters Cheesecake was also very tasty. Overall, great tasting food and service.

Pecan Brie appetizer was really good - it’s also on the dessert menu.
NY strip au poivre and filet medallions were perfectly cooked. The garlic mash was a little strong. Cheesecake and tiramisu were delicious. The service was great but hit a slow spot at the end when we needed to get to the Ferguson for a 730 pm show. We enjoyed ourselves, food was great overall and we will definitely be back

The room we were in was way toooo hot which made us uncomfortable in eating.
The steaks were average for a high end priced steak house. They had little or no taste to them. Our waitress informed us she was just coming back from maternity leave and was having trouble remembering things.
Would not go back.

The Sunday brunch has a great selection at a reasonable price. The service is what makes it superb. The ambience is excellent as always, yet they step it up with live music. It is appropriate for the setting and mood, this time a solo jazz guitar who was incredible.

Service was terrible. Room was loud due to an intoxicated party of 9. Server left our drinks empty. Didn’t inquire why our appetizers were not eaten. Two in our party ordered Cesar salads as their main course. We were charged for dinner salads yet received small salads as appetizers. So we had only one of our three served a meal for dinner. Just really a terrible experience. Sad

Our table was not ready at the reservation time, so we had to wait a bit for a table to open up. Past visits, they would place a “Happy Anniversary” sign on the table which did not happen this time. The tables were very close together which made it hard to have a conversation. Food was excellent as usual. Restaurant was very busy.

It was a great meal. We unfortunately couldn’t find a sitter so we had our 4 year old with us. Our server was super nice (her name was Michelle), and just patient with us and with our son. She very kindly brought me a cupcake at the end of the evening. Our food was delicious. Also I stan a restaurant with foie gras. We will definitely go back.

Server knew nothing about wine “didn’t drink it”. Were there for 40 min before we ordered our meals. Which was fine, we weren’t in a hurry. Staff were friendly, slightly unprofessional. Ribeye was fantastic. Rest of food was average. Expensive meal for overall average food and service.

Everything we had was excellent except for the oysters Rockefeller. Way overdone on the spinach. Should be an accompaniment to the oyster instead of overtaking it. It was a big plate of tons of spinach all over the plate with just a tiny bit of oyster. Everything else was excellent! The lobster tail was big and succulent and slightly sweet

I had eaten here for lunch a while back and left an unfavorable review. Management was very responsive on so many levels, I thought I would give them another try. Wife and I had a birthday celebration there with friends last night, and everything exceeded expectations. Serving staff were friendly and responsive, food was prepared perfectly, and very, very tasty! Kudos to Schlesinger's!
