I just had the pleasure of having dinner here a few nights back with a friend from work and her husband. My wife joined me and we arrived at 6:15 for a reservation we made through OpenTable. The restaurant was not full at such an early hour (especially on a Wednesday night) and the hostess was very kind in greeting us. Our friends had already arrived and we were promptly shown to our table. Within a few moments, our water appeared with a friendly greeting and a polite request for drink orders. My wife asked for a recommendation based on her preference for a particular style of white wine and the waiter easily chose an excellent wine.
The dinner order went just as smoothly and the food was delivered in a reasonable timeframe. I've been to a lot of 5-star restaurants and the measure of good service has always been that it "just happens". You don't need to ask to get your water filled, it just gets done. That's what this place is like. Everything is well timed and taken care of. We got to enjoy pleasant dinner conversation while our drinks and dinner arrived at just the right time.
The food quality was excellent. Three of us had the rib-eye steak and one had the proscuitto sandwich. Everything was prepared to perfection and the flavors were fresh and distinct. This is one of those great restaurants where the meals are prepared with fresh ingredients that are blended into amazing gourmet dishes without being overbearing.
While the meal was bit pricey, it's because we ordered the most expensive meals on the menu and the most expensive wine. If you want to get in and out for under $50 for two people, no problem, just stop by at happy hour. Drinks at $5 and the "small plates" are very nicely proportioned such that 3 of them is enough for two people.
Overall, I highly recommend Restaurant James Randall and look forward to going there again.
