Marie Livingstons is an interesting restaurant. The decor is upscale, yet in a small town sort of way. A few extra touches by an experienced decorator would make a big difference. Mind you, it is not a drawback, just an observation. But let's get to what really matters: the food and the service. Fried Mushrooms were ample and outstanding, with a good horseradish dipping sauce. Grilled Shrimp app was outstanding. Large gulf shrimp grilled perfectly with a tangy rub that, when dipped in the accompanying remoulade, was something I could have made a delicious meal out of. Highly recommend. Filet was large, tender and pretty well prepared. Asked for medium, cut into at the request of our busy server and agreed with him that it was much closer to medium-rare, but turned down his unsolicited offer to return it to the fire (as I have a personal policy not to return items to the kitchen...call me paranoid). Nonetheless, I enjoyed the steak which was swimming in a welcomed bath of Marie Livingston's au jus-style steak "sauce" that really is fantastic. The side loaded baked potato was fine, not noteworthy, but fine. Admit to surprise at the $1 up charge for the "loaded" part, especially since the loading was sparse. Warm yeast rolls and sweet butter are excellent, very warm and melt-in-your-mouth good. Side salad is small and average. Brownie Pie was decent, and at $6.99 should have had more chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla to justify the price.
Overall, what Marie does well she does quite well. The rest is average; again- not bad, but average. Service was attentive, glasses kept full, plates a little too eagerly cleared. Give it an A-. Go for the steaks , bread and appetizers. You'll leave full and happy.
