My husband and I came into town to celebrate out 27 year anniversary. We were staying at the Hyatt and the manager recommended this this restaurant. It was about 15 minutes away from 27th Street. It sits back in a old neighborhood, it reminds me of a very large home that sits next to a river. The atmosphere is breath taking. The wait staff was fantastic. The wine was clean and crisp. We chose to sit outside and tables we're covered in white linen tablecloth with the decor was extremely romantic. The appetizer, soup, and dinner was extremely delicious. Their prime rib is enormous for 10 ounce cooked perfectly. They're risotto was spot-on. There she crab soup was phenomenal. My husband had a beet salad with a roasted mushroom soup and beef tenderloins that melted in his mouth. We look forward to coming back when we were in town. Worth every penny. Highly recommend.
A friend and I ate here last night, and we had a wonderful experience. To start, this place, seems to be nuzzled in between the docks on the main Thalia and creek and an old Thalia neighborhood; it is very picturesque. There is outdoor and indoor seating, but you should elect outdoor, temperature permitting. They do have tables with fire-pit centers, for when the cooler weather rolls around.
The food is outstanding. We both had seafood dishes which were cooked perfectly and appropriately sided and accented. The pretzel bread they bring out for the table was also very delicious. Steinhilber's has a variegated wine menu with some delectable choices, and the server was actually knowledgeable enough to help with recommendations, even though the somm was out of town. I didn't get dessert but definitely will save room next time.
There was on minor annoyance: our food took an exceedingly long time to come out (over 50 minutes after ordering). This has to be taken into consideration that there was a large party there with lots of guests; however, it was worth the wait.
It’s beautiful, in a warm and long-standing way. We ate inside because it was so humid outside but I could see have a celebratory even on the lovely patio. The food was delicious. My husband ordered steak and I ordered shrimp. The salad dressing is so good, I could drink it! I think it was a cilantro lime vinaigrette. Service was on point.
Gorgeous outside patio area, inside is equally beautiful. Attentive wait staff and excellent service. We ordered the steak dinner for two and it was delicious. All steak is aged a minimum of 35 days so it's super tender and moist. Definitely recommend for a date night. This place can also accommodate large groups, but make a reservation beforehand. I'm not sure if it's kid-friendly, I didn't see anything on the menu for them and this place is a bit too fancy for small ones.
This restaurant was absolutely incredible!!!!! From the servers to the food to the decor!!! Everything was absolutely amazing! I celebrated my birthday here for the first time and fell in love with the decor and atmosphere. 5 stars hands down!
