    Our waiter was helpful, super nice and efficient. I ordered a ribeye steak, medium well. When initially brought out it was rare. I tried to eat it but was unable to stomach it so we advised the waiter and he said it could be put back on the grill. He retuned 2/3 minutes later and while the outside was darkened, the inside remained pink. My partner had the stuffed salmon, the the crab inside was very undercooked. We ordered sprites and they tasted like water. Upon notifying the waiter, he stated the soda needed to be changed out and he did bring out new drinks. But that should have been something addressed prior to serving us. I am unsure if it was the Father’s Day rush or what but this is not the service I have typically received from book binders.

    For the price, the food was not that great. I was expecting melt in your mouth, mouth watering, but it was not. The oyster rockafella did not taste like fresh oysters. It’s was mid to say the least.

    It was a perfect dinner experience. Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Food was perfectly prepared. The owner, John, stopped by to check in and even offered to take our picture on the way out (best part was the selfie with him). Definitely coming back!

    This was our first time at Bookbinders. The restaurant is lovely inside plus they have a very nice outdoor dining area with flowers and a koi pond. The menu has a lot of options. Our seafood was prepared to perfection. The owner greeted us when we arrived. Our waiter provided outstanding service. This may have been the best dining experience we have ever had.

    This place is in a great location and the view is outstanding. The outside eating area has a pond with goldfish in it. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive to our every need. I would highly recommend the place for a upscale dining event to anyone.
