Dined here many times, and usually very reliable for food and service, last couple times have been disappointing. This time, a busy Saturday night, very crowded inside and outside and maybe that's why the service was lacking and food not up to standard. Service was friendly, but very slow. Meal took about 30 minutes to deliver. My filet minon was cooked to order (medium) and was a nice cut, but served luke-warm at best. My wife ordered the steak salad, and the steak was overcooked, tough and she couldn't even eat it, making it basically a $27 plate of lettuce with 1/2 a tomato. I'll have to rethink repeating

We had a great meal. I started with the chopped salad, that wasn't really chopped but tasted great. I then had the skirt steak special with chimichurri which was excellent. Full of favor and the chimichurri was outstanding. Ironically our server diminished our experience. Not all that friendly and not all that attentive.

One thing you'll never have to worry about is the quality of food @ Witherspoon Grill. All the times that we've been here the food has always been prepared properly and tastes great! Definitely will be coming back for special occassions.

The food was delicious, from the oysters to the main entree of Delmonico Steak, to the cheesecake dessert. Service was attentive and responsive which was great! Made reservations, as this place on a Saturday night was very busy! We were seated right away, making this place a go-to for us.

Witherspoon Grill is always a vibrant atmosphere with excellent food. We enjoyed the white sangria along with the steak salad. Food and service were paced appropriately so we could leisurely enjoy our catch-up dinner with friends.

Meals were very good. My steak-pomme frites was close to the best I have ever had, and that is a high complement. My wife and sister-in-law both praised their filet tips. Seated in a nice booth. Noise level was quite high due to a nearby 30-person birthday party, but the booth allowed close discussion. Overall, a pleasant evening.

Their servers need to learn about Food Safety or Department of Health need to check out the place. The service we had was Ok. But, I felt disgusted when I went to restroom and saw a server with her apron and her side towel. Imagine how much germs she brings to you by serving you: touching your plate, drinks, maybe the food itself too
Aprons and side towels need to be left before you go to restroom. It’s called - Common Sense. I wonder if they wash their hands before returning to work?! But then, she/he will use the side towel which went to restroom with her
Overall: the food was Ok, our server was good and communicative.

I had the boneless short rib and it was good but the mashed potatoes were a bit runny. Two at our table had the trout and said it was superb. Jazz group was playing so it was hard to hear each other. We were in a booth with 4 people. Service was excellent.

Although I’ve been here before and recommended it, poor service, almost nonexistent service ruined the 40th anniversary brunch celebration. Our waitress was the worst I’ve had in a long time...couldn’t take our order, get us drinks, even remember to remove a cappuccino that was made with bad milk. I think in the future I need to read the comments rather than go on past experiences.

Was disappointed on many levels. First my wine glass and knife were dirty Second, we had two salts, no pepper placed on our table which resulted in ruining my husband’s steak. Third my husband’s dry aged steak was very fatty and my steak was overbooked. This will be our last visit. It’s a shame because we have dined here before and had a very good experience.

Our waitress was Dominique and she was very attentive and enjoyable. We had Oysters as an appetizer and two of us had the Cod with beurre blanc sauce, the fish of the day and very fresh and delicious as were the oysters. My wife had the crab salad and she said it was good (not above average). This was a lunch get together and the ambiance and noise level allowed us to laugh without being conspicuous or upsetting other guests . . . and that's a GOOD THING :-)
