I loved being back in the dining room with friends. Our servers were top notch and the food came in a timely manner but I was disappointed in my salmon. I ordered it to be cooked to medium doneness and specified, “not dry”, but it was very dry and stiff. The value of the meal has lessened after reopening since the meal no longer comes with a salad or beverage.

FOR FIRST MEAL IN THE REDONE DINING ROOM BECAUSE OF THE COVID PROBLEMS, THEY SERVED THE MEAL QUICKLY AND ALL WAS FINE. THE DINING ROOM WAS NICELY FILLED WITH DINERS, TALKING AND EACH TABLE ENJOYING SOME EXTENDED COMPANY THAT'S BEEN MISSING FOR MONTHS HERE. I TRIED TO LOG IN ON THE 10 SPOT, BUT THE WEBSITE WOULDN'T RECORD ANY NUMBER. GAYL GANSKOW, APT. 336 BLUE SKIES OF TEXAS WEST, SAN ANTONIO, TX. 78245

This review is for dinner on 3/24. Every thing was OUTSTANDING and the food was exceptional the chicken piccata sauce was the best I’ve ever had. S appalled potatoes were perfect as was the asparagus Soup was very good and hot. I would like to eat the same thing again but I am stuffed

As we return to normal it is difficult to judge at this point. We strongly congratulate the staff for their efforts during these trying times. We do feel that more attention could be paid to an improved menu and preparation of the food.

The wait-staff were attentive and made sure we would enjoy our meal. The food was good, but bland. The coffee was, as usual, very bitter, maybe a little too strong. A milder roast would be better. We're looking forward to it being like it used to be. It was nice to be eating with folks at other tables.

This was the first time and I think overall it was very good! As I already expressed to Daniel, there needs to be a wait staff at the cashier to direct the folks to their table so they are not left "hunting" while balancing a tray. The fruit was a little unimaginative. A delay in the bacon was unacceptable.

There were four of us and we all drank coffee with cream. When we caught the eye of the server for refills, we also asked for creamers. The coffee came, but no creamers. We asked for them again, still no creamers. We asked two different servers (one of whom had asked if we needed anything!), but again, no creamers. We finally gave up. It would be nice if, once the meal was served, the server would periodically check on the diners, would listen to what was said, and then provide what was needed.

The prime rib tasted excellent, but there was a lot of fat on each slice. We chose to eat at home, but we would have preferred to have some effort to keep the dinner warm.

The food on Tuesday was not very good: Onion soup was too spicy; fish was dry and tasteless; eggplant parmesan was not cooked enough. Food was not warm enough. We've had better meals in the past. Service has been very good since dining room seated started. Cynthia especially is excellent.

We loved having neighbors to dine with in the dining room. Cynthia is a superb waitress attending to all our wants. The temperature of the room was a little cool for the two women. All 4 of us ordered the salmon tart. One was disappointed that there was not much salmon in the tart. One hour was sufficient time.

Thanks for opening the dining room, you’ve done a great job considering the difficulties of the past several months; it is great to again start socializing; looking forward to being able to order from a menu.
