We received our entrees 2hours & 20 mins after sitting down. Just about everyone was pleased with their entrees, but we were all very dissatisfied with the service. We all were without a drink for close to an hour after finishing our first.
Only saw two waitresses & a busser working. We were there just under 3 hours on a night that was far from busy!

It was an excellent experience at Simpsons. We are long time customers and appreciated the great wait staff that has been there for many years. An added bonus was that we were there for the Friday night prime rib special. We will be back.

I can't tell you how impressed I was with everything. Started with a drink in the Tavern. Friday happy hour has nice music. Me not being a big drinker opted for my Saranc Root Beer which came with a nicely frosted glass. Then to Simpson's. Wait staff was excellent, very attentive. Menu selection is great. I had the Friday Prime Rib special, absolutely delicious. Just nice little touches with warm rolls, pretty butter pats and chocolates at end. Also the chairs are VERY comfortable. Another thing I notices was how clean the hotel looked. I think it is a diamond in the rough for lunch also.

We went to a union convention and after a long day we relaxed and enjoyed the food here. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

The wait staff is always welcoming. The food was delicious and at the right temperature. The value is always great and the ambiance and noise were quite acceptable. We go to Simpson's at least once a month and have enjoyed dining there for 35 years.

I had the Prime Rib special which was excellent. The beef was very tender and done exactly how I liked it. Vegetable tasted like fresh picked. The house salad was very good and the bread pudding for desert was the best ever! All in all my diet may have suffered but I left very happy. Simpsons is a great place for a nice quiet dinner.

We've gone to Simpson's for many of our special occasions with large groups as well as Sunday brunch and family dinners. The waitstaff is always friendly and attentive and the food is always spot on. The menu is excellent and we've never been disappointed with the chef specials. Their ability impaired access is excellent too, easy to drop off at the front entrance under cover and not far from the main entrance. Would highly recommend!

The food was great!! Our waitress seemed more bothered like us being there was problematic. That was the only part that was not enjoyable.

When we arrived we were seated at a table for four in the middle of the room. Myself, my mom and my sister are all, shall we say, "vertically challenged", and the chairs were so low that we all felt we were sitting in a hole. When we asked the hostess if we could move to a booth, which would be more comfortable for us, we were basically told no and that they would get pillows for us. We thought they would be regular chair pads.... no, they were bed pillows! Yes, actual big, white bed pillows. My mom was so embarrassed that she was ready to walk out. We have spent the last few years spending our New Years eve at Simpson's and have never been treated that way. Also the lobster bisque was too salty and the lobster chewy and tough. While the main meal was okay, after the "pillow incident" it just put a damper on the rest of the evening. I'm afraid we'll be going someplace else next New Years eve......

We always enjoy dining at Simpson' s in the Desmond. The food is great, the seating is comfortable and the service has always been excellent. It's a great place for a special occasion or just a night when you want to have a great dinner experience.

The food was excellent and the service was OK but they did not have the reservation when we got there. So it took them some time to set up a table for 10. But we will go back

Had the grilled swordfish which was excellent. Perfectly cooked. Moose and flavorful. Being from NYC I was skeptical of the kind of meal I could expect but was happily surprised at the quality of the food. Excellent.

Guest and myself had not seen each other in many years and decided Simpson's would be a perfect fit to meet and enjoy a quiet lunch with lots of reminiscing. Everyone was pleasant and efficient and we enjoyed a lovely salad with fruit, which was delightful. We were well taken care of and left to visit for two hours.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

The food at Simpson's was good, though I thought the menu was somewhat limited. I had a fish dish topped with crab, which was nicely prepared. If you're looking for an extensive wine list, you'll have to go elsewhere.

As usual Simpsons never disappoints! (Other than a group of semi well behaved soft ball players, very entertaining) went for the prime rib special on Friday night,

Another wonderful meal at this gem at the Desmond. We know it has the best prime rib (Fridays only) but being Saturday, we tried the seafood offerings. The halibut, sole en papillote, and swordfish au poivre were all exquisite in both presentation and taste! Don’t pass on dessert - delicious!

Not real impressed, the server was super busy and they were understaffed. The drink was a bit weak and the place was pricey. $61 for prime rib, a drink and glass of wine, for one.

Unfortunately the food we ordered was not good at all. We both ordered the Filet Of Beef and it was a overcooked and there was no flavor at all. No seasoning on the meat, potatoes or asparagus. The potatoes were dry and tasteless. The overall presentation was beautiful, but the execution on the cook of the food I’m sorry to say was horrible. I expected way better food for the $32 a plate meal.
