A large restaurant with heavy, dark interior from another era. An impressive, expansive menu that doesn't match up with the product. Service was less than impressive. The greeter expressed surprise that we would show up without a reservation, when only a couple of the other, numerous, tables were occupied. The food was not as well prepared as we expected. In short, I doubt we will return.

Run away--do not walk My friend and I were surprised to see prime rib on the lunch menu. We ordered the prime rib plus chicken. First we did order an appt. --It arrived lukewarm. That alone shoul have alerted us. When our lunch came everything was cool. The waitress said the cook would warm it. Well that would not be acceptable; and asked for the chef. He came to the table ready to snatch the meals for the microwave. I said the would not do. He put his hand in my face ; and proceeded to criticize us in no uncertain terms. We were frightened and asked the waitress for the check to include what we ate and drank. We paid the bill ; and gave the waitress a generous tip.(She was great.) What a schocker.The interior was nice; but the (chef/owner ) certainly does not respect his customers. How could he stay in business?

While carpets and booth seats may need overhaul, the charm of Rolandeaus is the feeling of stepping back in time, or maybe visiting Sleeping Beauty's castle about 60 yers into the100 years sleep. At our anual Easter trek, we find the food is excellent, the white table cloths and real table settings are elegant, the same kind and stately waiter in his black suit and starched shirt is comfortable. When I am there March 31, browsing the very formal menu of succulent selections for Easter dinner appetizer, entree and dessert, I will order the Rob Roy. No other coctktail matches the mood.

We made reservations for Valentine's weekend- we were hoping for a romantic dining experience with old world charm. Instead we found it to be extremely dated and very poor quality for the main courses.
We had a 10 min + wait on the drinks which the server blamed the slow bar tender. The escargot stuffed mushrooms were wonderful, but we had to ask for extra bread and by the time we received it our salads had arrived and the app was gone. Although we still sopped up the last of the garlic butter anyway.
The overall vibe of the place is extremely tired. It looks exactly like the before shot of a restaurant in need of a make over. My prime rib had 20% fat and his stuffed lobster tails were buried, as though to be hidden by a mound of Ritz cracker crumb topping and was over cooked. The dessert menu lacked appeal and we skipped it. We will not be back.

While we do eat here every so often we had not experienced New Year's Eve here before. We dine there last night and the menu was streamlined and included everything anyone could wish for. The baked stuffed lobster tails were fabulous and the prime rib the other 3 in our party ordered was as well done as always. The staff did a great job but appeared to be a bit frazzled with the large number of people - our server Charles handled it all well but it was obvious that he and others were a bit overwhelmed. We had a great time, the food was delicious and it was a Happy New Year's Eve.
