We were seated upstairs. Every 5 minutes a wave of cold air would sweep through. Typically this would be welcome by me but this was chilling. As if someone propped open a window or door for a few minutes. Wait service was slow. My wife and I both felt sick last night and this morning. We have no idea if... More

When you're paying top dollar, I know you expect top-notch food and service to match. I'm sorry you weren't happy with your experience when you dined with us, but please know this is not the usual feedback that I see.

Had a festive, intimate dinner with my wife and two friends here three nights ago. It was Awesome! It was our first visit to Lewnes, and I was a bit wary of what we would find, given the prices they charge. But I can confidently say it was worth every penny. I’ve eaten at top-notch steakhouses up and down the... More

I cannot possibly recommend this restaurant as my dining experience was awful. Our waiter "forgot" to bring bread to the table until we finally asked. He then"forgot" to bring the ordered salads. My entree finally came; the entree was ordered "medium" and came "rare/bloody" and was cold. The waiter was "absent" and so the order could not be corrected. The... More

Loved the quiet romantic atmosphere - my filet needed to be sent back to be cooked more but it was good. The spinach was amazing , and my husbands rib eye was a little fatty but again good. The wine list is extensive - but many unrealistic for the average couple to fiscally purchase. Overall a great experience.

Despite having to send back your steak for a little extra cooking, I'm glad my team was able to accommodate your preferences, Lizz. It's also nice to know you and your husband enjoyed the creamed spinach. I do hope we'll see you again soon! Best, Sam Lewnes More

Our party of 6 went here for Christmas eve dinner. Our server Nick recommended the Cowboy steak and three in our party ordered that. We also had shrimp and lobster.

Dropped off a cake the day before dinner and the staff presented it in a very simple and pleasant way. No bells and whistles and for a 45 year old man simplicity was what was needed.
