It was an excellent experience and the attention to detail made our meeting very enjoyable. Tracy sets a very high standard for customer service at the Walden Club and it is very evident. I cannot think of any area that needs to be improved.

Need to change the lighting in the formal dinning area. The light bulbs in the glass fixtures are WAY too cool. They have almost a fluorescent feel. They need to be much warmer for this kind of setting. Also might want to consider using the can lights. It was very dim - too much so.

All the guests in our party enjoyed our meals and the server was very nice. The only drawback is that she must have been serving the entire club as she didn't come by very often and we had to wait to get check, to pay, etc.

It was good to go out for a birthday dinner, but the food and service might be improved. Our entrees were salmon and grouper, which were prepared well, though the grouper was heavy on the crust. The vegetables were good, but seemed, all mixed together, a short cut to good vegetable dishes. The service was attentive on the whole, but was not very attentive to our finishing our meal. Had to wait too long to pay for our meal. We were especially unhappy that our check was not itemized!
