    Our service was lovely and entrees were terrific. We were very disappointed in the Brussel Sprouts appetizer and all of our salads. The brussels were way over cooked and soggy. The Grilled Caesar was also way over cooked, becoming mushy. And the regular salad was inedible. Hate to give such a poor review of those elements because the entire evening was so lovely.

    Our server Vicki was excellent, cheerful, and very attentive. The food was splendid, as was the atmosphere. However, Open Table did not have the correct information for either the event menu or the price. The price in particular was higher than we expected to pay, and we might have chosen a different restaurant had we known the truth. Open Table needs to do a better job of keeping up to date with their restaurant list, menus, and prices.

    Food was exceptional but the service really could have used some work, at least for our experience. As someone who has dined at this place regularly, as well as other RB locations, not to mention is having a wedding reception there this fall, I would think a place of this caliber would pay closer attention to its patrons. We normally have a really great service experience here but yesterday wasn't the best.

    Overall it was a great value, but the entree' plates seemed underwhelming in appearance and in value. My date had the croissant sandwich which came with a spinach salad. The salad was just spinach, it could have had a nut or a fruit or dried fruit or something. I had the steak and eggs which was cooked well but on the plate it does look underwhelming. A 1 to 2 oz pice of meat and not a great cut. I would think if it was going to be small, it should be at least a tenderloin tail, or if a cheaper cut give at least 4 oz and then throw on some potatoes or something, or a spinach salad. The prices are actually good, but because it is a Brennens restaurant I would think a couple of those ideas would have enhanced the experience but not broken your food cost. Drink prices are a good value too and the server Jeff was great. I love the place, just my honest opinion as a fellow chef.

    The food was absolutely incredible. The Grilled Redfish entree for the 20th anniversary was easily our number 1 favorite, with all of the other dishes very close behind. The fish was cooked perfectly, and had so much flavor. Every staff member was extremely friendly and charismatic. Vicky did such an amazing job helping us through the menu and was very attentive throughout our whole dining experience.

    Good service, food, and location but entirely too loud in the restaurant. Bar was a welcome relief to be able to hear. Large parties creates extra high volume conversations. They should be in a private room.

    Appetizer (meant to go with drinks) was served after the soup and salad, long delays in getting second drinks. Veal grillades served with just egg on top, no gravy or grits??? We have had wonderful meals/service in the past but Sunday's was subpar. We love the setting so hope Ralph's can get back on track...
