After our flight from Europe we were invited to dine at the Atheneum. Since it was Wednesday they served the grill buffet. An amazing experience, fabulous food in a classic style dining room. An evening to remember for sure.

Perfect setting out doors at Rath al Fresco. Drinks, appetizers entre and dessert. A great variety and unique flavorings. There is no place like it..

I have eaten lunch here twice and dinner here three times. It is a club, with a club atmosphere from an earlier era...very high ceilings, ornate furnishings, very spacious public rooms, etc. Quite grand. They have a buffet dinner on Wednesday nights which is very good, with lots of choices (and a chocolate fountain!). The buffet lunch was also good. But the regular dinners were profoundly mediocre at best (a cassoulet dish was memorably bad - terribly overcooked and unrecognizable as cassoulet) and the service was frustratingly inattentive and slow.

I had the opportunity to attend Lobster night and the Athenaeum hit out of the park. The seafood appetizer was wonderfully fresh, the lobster cooked to perfection, and the desert hit the spot. The service was also spot on. A special night for a very special dinner-Go if you get a chance
