Prepare yourself for excellent food. Also, prepare to separate yourself from your cash. But, you do get what you pay for. The ambience was very pleasant. There was pleasant, live piano music at one end. Each course of the meal was brought by a separate wait person with each diner's plate. We three, had duck, chicken, and lamb. Each dish... More

I just love this place. I've honestly only had lunch there but it is the most festive, romantic place. Everyone raves about dinner.

The setting is in a beautiful art deco room with mile high ceilings with lovely murals. But the real star is the food. Every course had something special and creative. You will not be disappointed. While not inexpensive, it is definitely not over priced.

Delicious up-scale food in a beautiful restored large, old hotel room. Quite good wine list and top-notch service. Prices are quite reasonable, a bargain compared to NYC or San Francisco.

We've eaten here a number of times, but our recent celebratory dinner resulted in as fine a meal and as fine a dining experience as we've ever had. The service was impeccable, the food was magnificent. And if you've never sat in the Netherland Plaza and looked at your surroundings, you ought to do so. Each year, several couples meet... More
