Wife and I had dinner after a Saturday show. Amazing. Apps, soups, entrees were all wonderful. One if my favorite soups, cream of mushroom, was the best I've ever had. My wife's beet salad was great.

We WILL return!

I ate here for dinner with my boyfriend before a show at the Morris. We had soup, two entrees (chicken) and a reasonably priced bottle of red wine and it was over $150. Way too much for the quality and taste of the food which was nothing special. The inside is beautiful and the service was average. I enjoyed LaSalle Grill more (food wise, not ambiance). Probably won't be back.

We made reservations (4 people) for Valentines Day evening. Our table was ready in a timely manner. I believe we had one of the nicest locations in the building, located in the 'clock tower room'. It was away from the traffic, a nice view of the outside and overview on the main floor. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive, even on a busy holiday evening. Each of us ordered something different on the menu and we were all exceptionally pleased. The salmon was moist and delicious, the duck breast was excellent (loved the glaze), the steak melted in your mouth like butter, and the pork chop was heavenly. I was a little disappointed that the "Prawns" were more like large shrimp, but they were delicious. I had a Navarre salad which was very tasty also. We couldn't resist dessert even though we were past "full". Each couple shared a piece of Key Lime pie which equalled in 'excellent'. A perfect evening thanks to the perfection of the fantastic venue. We will definitely be back!

The dinner menu is very original and offers some amazing items. I recommend it to anyone looking for a legit finedining experience.
