    Le service n'est vraiment pas agréable. de l'entrée au départ. Pas désagréable mais simple technique. Les produits sont correcte et l'addition dans le même style.

    Returned after 10 years. The special experience I remember was neutered with average tasting and prepared food. The filet had contentious sinew, the sandwich was fresh but bland, the eggplant Parmesan was more like vegetarian lasagna. Our waiter Anthony was fantastic but he was pulled away and replaced with average. Atmosphere is always lively but not obnoxious.

    We asked for water and he just brought the bottle and walked off. other servers poured the water. Didn’t ask if we wanted appetizers or drinks. We asked three people before we got some bread. Catfish was dry filet mignon was good. Best part was the ambiance-

    We’ve eaten here for over 30 years, and I am happy to report that it remains a great place to eat. Delicious filet mignon and excellent homemade desserts. Still crowded, even on weekdays, so make a reservation. There was an hour and 15 min wait, so we were glad we had a reservation.

    Our first waiter was very nice but it was a shift change. 2nd waiter kept making unsolicited comments about where we were from. Maybe joking…but not necessary.

    Late night dinner for 1 person can be hard to find except at Ebbitts! Great food and service, comfortable ambiance, no complaints EXCEPT for 1 thing over which they don’t really have much control. The professional beggars camped permanently outside the doors make the Ebbitts experience unpleasant before and after the time in the restaurant. Smoking weed, harassing patrons, and begging on the doorstep make a visit unpleasant before and after an otherwise nice experience.

    Honestly it was not as good as it usually is-my crab cake was not very good and had a fair amount of shells . The hostess was not very friendly and no Blue Moon. Tue crab cake was expensive and not up to par. It was my brothers birthday and it was not very special
