We arrived at our reservation time, and the staff, knowing we had tickets at the theatre across the street, gave us excellent and quick service.
I had the Swordfish - which was tasty and light. This menu is basically ala carte, and pricey - but you get what you pay for - excellent service and wonderfully prepared food.

This restaurant is high class in all categories. Food/ Service is excellent. The filet mignon is outstanding as well as the spinach salad, and cakes. The staff is attentive which I enjoyed. We have been going to Dawsons for five years for special family gatherings and never been disappointed.
