“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My fiance and I came here to to check out their wedding venue and ended up staying for dinner. For starters, their wedding venue is stunning. Dark mahogany and elegant decor give this place a very intimate feel. We ended up going a different direction for our own wedding, however, we would highly recommend checking it out if you're in the planning process. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.

As for the restaurant...incredible. Easily some of the best food I have ever tasted. I got the strip and the Mrs. got the filet. Both were cooked to perfection and the sides were just as good. Food is reasonably priced for what you get, as are the drinks. Overall, highly recommended and will certainly be back.

“....still fabulous after all of these years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I first dined here nearly 40 years ago. It was great then and it still is with a wonderful "fine dining" feel that is hard to find in a large suburban restaurant. Have met a group of women friends here several times in the past year for lunch because it is a nice central location for us. The reason we continue going back is that the food is great, the service attentive and friendly (with this somewhat intimidating group of older women!), we are allowed to take our time and are never made to feel rushed.

Wonderful lunch menu with reasonable prices. Everyone is always pleased with their meals.

“Could be much better - could have been a disaster...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I recently booked a party on the banquet side (the nature I am not disclosing, as I am a regular for lunch at the restaurant)

This place needs help - fortunately the on duty manager samantha, took care of a number of things that were overlooked in the booking process. She was great, but it was clear that this place is living on its past laurels. For one, the person I booked with was a no show, despite me being told she would be running the event. There was an overlap of events, such that it made things very uncomfortable with one event coming and the other going. The event itself was fine once we ironed out the early mishaps which could have been a major disaster.

“Should have gone elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Have visited this location several times in the past years. However, this is our first visit in a year and boy have things changed. The hosting staff leaves a lot to be desired in making your entrance pleasant. The waitress was okay. However the food must have sat on the pick up location for a lengthy time. We ordered prime beef and surf and turf. Both came out luke warm as well as their side dishes. I would reconsider either L'Andana or Capital Grill for this kind of money for better service and more attention to the food. No return to this restaurant.

“Excellent Variety and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The menu seems endless and all of it is really well prepared. The wait staff is very knowledgable and the premises are brightly lit with several dining rooms and attached function room.
