New Year's Eve group visited Mendenhall but don't think we'll come back next year. Those who had the petite filet said it didn't taste very good and the strong flavor of basil in the creamed potatoes was strange. The veggie option also had strong basil flavor in the sauce topping a Portobello with squash under it (too much to eat)... More

We went there for a NYE dinner and reservations were required. Seating started a 4pm and we were a little early but were seated promptly. Menu selection was a limited selection for meals. Entrees came with a fixed veggie (4 medium stalks of asparagus with a carrot) and starch (lyonnaise potatoes). Salads, appetizers and desserts were a la carte. I... More

Used a gift certificate to enjoy the scrumptious Sunday brunch buffet. For one price you can eat all the salads, starters including shrimp and crab legs, made to order waffle or omelet, salmon and many desserts as you like. Along with mimosas or whatever drink you like! Then you get to order an entree with veggies to eat there or... More

Having been to many fine restaurants all over the world, I have to say, the Mendenhall is on par with the best of them. Combining modern decor with top service and DELICIOUS food, the Mendenhall has it all. I was especially impressed with the timing of the meal.. there was no rush, and you were given ample time between courses... More

The restaurant is a really cozy inn with a small outside courtyard. Since we visited in early December, I don't know much about that but the inside was very nice. There was a warm fire and low lighting setting a romantic atmosphere. The service was extradorinary. The food was very good, presented well, and nicely prepared. This is a good... More

We had a birthday coupon good for $20 off, and it was my birthday. It was a Wednesday, which is their Lobster Night with special discounts. We assumed we could not use our $20 coupon with the specials, but our waiter Andy informed us that we could. Our dinners were amazing. My wife had a lobster tail, and I had... More

We had reservations for last Sunday and had one of the best meals we've ever had. This was our first time at Mendenhall so we were not sure what to expect. The room is elegant and perfect for a special occasion. As it was Sunday they have a special three course menu which includes soup or salad, entree and dessert.... More
