We live and work in the area, so teh Caucus Room is nice "change of pace" go to restaurant. Rarely crowded, good (not great) food at relatively reasonable prices considering it is mostly a steakhouse and located in a hotel. We've had salads, burgers and steaks and enjoyed all; lunch is also a very nice meal (although relatively a bit pricier as a lunch meal than at dinner)

This was the first time I visited this place, and probably the last. I cannot pinpoint the exact reason just a compilation of the facts, the room's ceilings are so high and the echo in the room is overwhelming and this was an evening that the place was not crowded so I can only imagine what it would be like if the place was fully packed. The service was friendly but spotty, we were 8. Take the drinks most of us were drinking straight up drinks, martinis, manhattan's, etc. some drinks came in cocktail glasses some in old-fashioned champagne glasses, some drinks were filled to the brim, some half down the glass even the identical drinks were different. The menus were passed and the bread came, they only brought one tiny bread basket for 8 of us seated at a long skinny table, so it was hard to access, also there were no bread/butter plates so we had to either eat the entire piece or place part of it on the wooden table since they have no tablecloths. I ordered the fresh oysters since they were highly recommended by the waiter and furthermore they were offered with mignonette sauce which I really like since I do not like oyster with the red sauce. The oysters came and indeed were fresh but they were not such that you could pick them up and dunk them in the sauce since the only sauce was daubed on top with a bunch of other garnish, hardly what I consider fresh oysters on the half shell, by the way the menu and the waiter described them as if they were served the regular way, when asked the server said that the chef wanted to do something different. Bread ran out as expected and we had to ask for more, unfortunately it did not come until we were almost finished with the main course with an excuse that it had to be backed, too late. I ordered steak-frites and it was OK, the meat a little tough but expected and the frites were excellent. Others had scallops and rockfish and both turned out OK. For dessert I opted for the sorbets and they came and were a little icy like they have been in the freezer for a while, I figured that since we were there the day after New Year's Day the place had not been busy since it is in a hotel with low occupancy during the holidays. Others had rice pudding which came warm with a scoop of ice cream, they like it. All in all, the place has potential but they have to do something about the reverberation since we almost had to yell to hear each other.

We had brunch here on Sunday. The restaurant closes for a bit between brunch and lunch however the waitress made accommodations for us to stay for breakfast. Very fast and very friendly service. The pancakes were average but the French toast was outstanding. Also very nice hostess. We would go back for French toast and the great service.

The food was excellent and the service was spot on. The most striking thing was the overall general friendliness of the staff. Try the corn soup it will not disappoint!
