Went to Carvers with wife expecting an upscale steakhouse, not necessarily Gothams like, but was disappointed. First off the ambience was very plain and cheap looking, you could see aluminum and iron pipes running along the ceiling. The waiter was not very helpful with the menu, but I will say the maitre.d was very good.
As far as the meals the butternut squash soup was excellent and my prawn cobb salad was good. The entrees was where we were really let down. My wife had the seafood boullabaise which was very fishy tasting, my wife said it was because they didn't boil the fish first. I had an 8 oz. n.y. steak which was very thin and a little tough. The stuffed baked potato was very good though. For dessert we shared a poached pear with ice cream which was ok.
With 2 glasses of wine the bill came to $128, a little pricey for what was offered. I wouldn't go there again.
I have been to this restaurant a few times now with family and friends and have noticed each time that someone who seamed to be the managers wife or girlfriend is always there in the lounge and it's extremly unprofessional for the manager to be kissing and touching her while he is on shift and to have her there watching all evening. I have seen this on my way to the bathroom almost each time I have visited this restaurant. The service is excellent, very attentive, very polite and excellent food!! Just the scenery of the public affection between who seamed to be the manager and this woman who is hanging out for hours.
I will still come back for the steak like I said, great food , great service.
I thought I gave this restaurant a try despite the so so review since I heard from some friends the restaurants "weren't that bad" and now I regretted that I went and paid the hefty bill for the quality of food I get. My husband and I went on a Sat night and there was only four occupied tables in the restaurant that night. The services were attentive and great, the manager even came to our table a few times to ask us how we were doing. However, for the amount they charge for the food, it is not acceptable. My husband ordered the 3 courses set menu with tenderloin and the tenderloin was tasteless and looked burnt. I ordered the rib-eye, medium rare and it came out as medium and very oily. They claimed to place the steak on a sizzling plate so it might be cooked a little bit more than desired which I don't quite get it? If I ordered medium rare, why can't the chef timed it so that it came out as "medium rare" after the additional cooking on the sizzling plate? And I thought serving veggie are supposed to be a healthy choice but the vegetables that come with the entree were soaked in oil which I can barely eat them (basically my entire entree is soaked in oil).
Honestly I don't know how they can survive for the quality of food and the price they are charging, coz their menu price is not $$ but more like $$$ at least, but I guess since they are hotel restaurant that might help them to sustain their business.
Won't go again.
How can you go wrong with their 3-course meal for $29? If you are a bread lover--then this is the place to try! Fresh, hot bread...crispy on the outside and warm & soft on the inside. 2 types of bread were served, 1 with Garlic pieces and 1 with cranberries. Served with oil & balsamic vinegar. Choices for appetizer were the applenut squash soup or Duck Prosciutto. Both were excellent and quantity was more than we expected. Rib-eye steak was well prepared, juicy & tasty. Potatoes & vegetables accompanied nicely. Dessert was lemon cheesecake--big portion & more than we thought we would get for a 3-course meal. My daughter however tired the halibut which was disappointiing. It was hard and overcooked. My daughter enjoyed the buttery potatoes and veggies though. Carvers is a steakhouse, so I guess seafood is something they have to work on to improve. We advised the manager about this and he quickly apologized and was happy we mentioned this to him. He deducted my daughter's 3-course meal off the bill and offered us lattes with our dessert. All in all, it was worth the $29 and you don't have to wait for the "dine-out" event to try this. I will definitely return to Carvers!
