    Server was phenomenal, however the steak was very unimpressive. No detectable seasonings, was undercooked, and wasn’t that great of a cut of meat. Everything else was good, especially the stuffed salmon. The prices are high, but the ambiance and service mostly justify that. My biggest complaint was the 70$ steak that would have been about equivalent to Applebees quality.

    Great food and great service but this is the first time the parking lot was full so I had to drive around a bit to find street parking. This was 5:30pm on a Saturday so a little before "prime time". Other than that, the meal was nearly perfect but we had to ask for our Dianne sauce after they meal arrived...not a big deal but atypical for Book Binders.

    Date night with my husband and it was my first time there. I had the coffee rubbed filet and it was the best steak I’ve ever had. The sides were amazing. Our server, Joe, was so nice and attentive. What a lovely experience!

    Steak was over cooked and had to be taken back. Another steak came out under cooked and had to be cooked more so it was not good. The server, Alex, couldn’t remember anything and was slow but was nice. Manager was very apologetic and offered us free desserts. We have been there many times and it’s always excellent. I don’t know what happened but it was not a good night. It was our anniversary celebration dinner so it was disappointing.

    We were a little disappointed in the fried calamari (soggy and lukewarm) and our seafood salad (not as big and full of seafood as in the past). But we had great service and it is a lovely venue. We will give them another chance.

    The food and service we outstanding. Timothy our server was very attentive and friendly. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and sides, lobster Mac and cheese and creamed spinach, were delicious. Always a favorite for special occasions or date night.
