On a recent business trip we used Tripadvisor to choose a restaurant for a business dinner. I'm so glad that we did. The service, atmosphere, and food was amazing in so many ways. Everyone left raving about their meals and our experience. Looking forward to my next trip to visit Dresslers again!

Several friends had told us about Dressler as a good restaurant for a date night. So we went. We had a good experience overall. The food was good but unimpressive. The service staff wasn't too cordial. However, our biggest disappointment was at the price of the special. Usually, the specials are price accordingly to a similar item on the menu.... More

We go here often. I can never say enough good about our experiences here. Good quality food, great portions, great service and excellent wine choices. The staff is the best.

My husband and I decided to try Dresslers after reading the great reviews and looking for a new date night spot. We are definitely glad that we did. We made reservations for Friday night, which I highly recommend doing since the restaurant and bar were both packed. Parking at Birkdale can be a bit of a pain, especially on a... More

There is nothing negative that can be said about Dressler's. We have been here numerous times and have not had a bad meal. The atmosphere and service are excellent. It truly has earned its great rotation!

This is a quiet restaurant - I have never seen any advertising, wife heard of it from friends. It is also relatively quiet inside, something so few restaurants seem to offer anymore. We like to hear each other without raising our voices. The food, ah the food -so good and reasonably priced for the quality, ambience and service. If they... More

The G's Salad with goat cheese, walnuts and a really good balsamic vinaigrette was recommended by a nice guy sitting next to me at the bar. As he frequents Dressler's quite a bit, he also suggested the New Orleans shrimp to pair with salad for a light meal. He bought me a very nice Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay that complemented...

Great restaurant for a special celebration or even a spur-of-the moment meal. Good atmosphere, pleasant staff and outstanding food. Little turnover in staff so it is almost like having a friend waiting on you. A creature of habit, I always order the calamari appetizer and the rack of lamb entree - really good. Good wine selection and excellent martinis!

We arrived early for our reservation and was directed to the bar to wait since we were waiting for our third person to arrive. There was standing room only and basically no other waiting area. After about 30 minutes we were summoned to the dining room and our third person had just arrived. We were seated, luckily, in a horseshoe... More
