If you are craving a great steak, this is the perfect spot for you. The steaks are cooked to perfection and practically melt in your mouth. They have a fairly decent seafood selection, but it's a steak house so I go there for the steaks. Expect to pay for greatness at this restaurant. Excellent atmosphere for special occasions.

We went to Schlesinger's for my birthday dinner (used a buy 1 entree/get 1 free coupon that was sent to me as a birthday gift from the restaurant). Our server was Katlyn and she was absolutely fantastic. I had broiled crab cakes and my husband had the bone-in ribeye and we were both thrilled with how delicious and perfectly prepared... More

I had the New York Strip Steak. It was marginal, especially for a rather expensive steakhouse. The manager did comp me the app, but, I would have much preferred a good steak. The steak arrived before I finished my cocktail and appetizer. Oh, well, life on the road. One and done for Schlesinger's Steakhouse.

First time I have been here. The lunch specials are fantastic and there is quite a number of items to choose from. I had the Pork Chop (very good), my Wife had the Prime Rib (Very good). A Friend had the Shrimp Basket and that looked absolutely outstanding!

The restaurant is not friendly, staff act like they are better than the clientele. The steaks are overpriced for the quality of the meats used. Not a fan, tried it three times all of the strikes.

Outstanding place for a small group for lunch with an excellent selection from the lunch menu. The price for the lunch specials was very reasonable at around $10. We had a private room and our own server for this get together. The service was outstanding and the server was very knowledgeable of the menu. Could not ask for a better... More

Dined at Schlesinger's with a large party of folks for a wedding celebration. We were seated in a quiet dining area closed off from the rest of the restaurant. This setting was ideal for the occasion Though we ordered from a set menu, the selections were varied and guests were allowed to substitute certain portions of the menu. I tried... More

Yesterday, a group of 10 of us who lunch monthly visited Schlesinger's. We are all seniors and have traveled and eaten out quite a bit. Most of us ordered the "Kobe beef meatloaf". We all loved it along with the honey butter and fresh rolls. The meatloaf came with gravy, grilled veggies and garlic mashed potatoes. I loved the meatloaf!... More

We had an appt close by so we decided to try Schlesinger's since it is a sister restaurant of our favorite restaurant in Williamsburg, Opus 9. Warmly greeted by the hostess, we were seated in a very comfortable booth. I was pleased to see that Schlesinger's offered a 12 for $12 lunch special as well as some other lunch specials.... More

The best atmosphere for a wonderful, quiet dining experience. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the wines are excellent. Top it off with a delicious dessert and you have enjoyed a spectacular dining experience. The bar at Schlesinger's is also fantastic...and the bar appetizers are superb.
