It's pretty mediocre. The steaks are sort of bland, not very flavorful. I thought their sauces also lacked taste. At least for those prices I expected it to be a little better. I did give it another chance to see if it was an off night, but it was the same.

With the Open Table reservation we were treated like lepers. We checked in 15 minutes before our reservation time and were seated 50 minutes past our reservation time. We checked five times with Anita, the owner, and were told each time that we were second on the list. Seven groups were seated before we were, including three groups that were the same size as ours. Two of those three groups addressed Anita about ""fitting them in"" because they were friends.
The food was good. The place was packed. We had the booth next to the kitchen, but it was like we were invisible to the staff.
No adjustment to the bill was ever offered, no apologies or explanation was ever given for the treatment.

I went to Taylor's last night for a friend's birthday, outside patio is nice, server was pleasant. Ordered a bottle of champagne and salads, all were fine. I ordered my steak MR and when it arrived obviously MW, I told the food runner that it was not cooked how I ordered it. The manager comes back with the steak I just returned and proceeds to convince me that the steak is MR. It was only very slightly pink on the inside and she blamed it on the fact that we were outside, so it did not appear MR. Fine, so I taste it and it is more like MW. I tell her that it is not, but I decided to say its tastes fine because I was through trying to arm wrestle with her. Fine, then I will not return.

If I were to just rate the steak I would have given this place 5 stars. The Steaks are just as good as mastro's or ruth chris. They have the best rack of lamb I have ever eaten. The service on the other hand is very poor, very snobbish. I do not appreciate feeling as if I am not good enough to eat somwhere. That being said it does have great food.

I like the atmosphere; cozy and parking is easy.
My husband and I made a reservation for 7:00 P.M. on Christmas Eve. We had no problem getting the reservation. When we arrived we were told a few minutes which became about 25 minutes, so we sat at the bar and had a drink. This was fine.
After 25 minutes were were seated and very soon the waiter came and told us to hurry and place our order because the kitchen was closing. Closing??? Why were we not told when we made the reservation that the kitchen would close by 7:30. We would have come earlier. EAch course we ordered came quickly and almost shoved at us by the waiter who apparently wanted to go home and get us out of there.
We realize it was Christmas Eve, however, if they did accept our reservation at 7:00 they should have told us that they planned to close early. The food was very good as it always is, but the staff could be more customer friendly. We paid our bill but the tip certainly did reflect the service.

Best buy steakhouse
First Impression was not the best.
I never write a review but this place deserves a rating.
I consider myself a streak lover. I had had steaks from all over the world. We were debating go to Taylor's or Maestro but from looking at the menus Taylor's would give me more value for my buck and great quality.
On to the food when I first walked, it seems outdated but that did not matter once the food arrived. I had made reservation but did not need them when I arrived I was seated me immediately. I had the rib eye special:
8 OZ. OMAHA RIBEYE
WITH PEPPERCORN SAUCE
Fresh Vegetable and Potato
*The server had recommended having the peppercorn sauce on the side that was a great idea. It tasted better on its own. Even the veggies and potatoes were perfect. The carrots has a juicy, slightly sweet I loved. Even the mashed potatoes tasted really. It was phenomenal I have had my share of steaks and then this one was juicy, tender and full of flavor.
MY husband ordered:
TOURNEDOS OF BEEF: Filet Mignon 29.95
Jumbo Mushroom Caps - Bearnaise
I have never liked filet mignon but after trying this entree, I love filet mignon amazing how marvelous it could taste with the appropiate chef. Totally will go back next time we are in town. I very highly recommend this restaurant to anyone the food was so worth it. Our tab was less than $100 and that was for two entrees, two deserts, and a beer. Thumbs up do not let appearances turn you away. The server was great

My husband and I went to have dinner on a Saturday night. We understood that we did not have reservations so the hostess started a waiting list. Not to mention we had to wait 10 minutes before she got off the phone and did not even make eye contact nor greeted us properly. We sat and waited for about 20 minutes. We were still calm and waiting for out table being understanding that we did not make reservations. However, another couple came in without reservations and found out that there was a waiting list. They threw a fit! and explained to the hostess that ""it is not acceptable"". Apparently the couple had called to see how long the wait was before but never made reservations. I heard the entire conversation as I was sitting right next to the hostess -still waiting. The hostess immediately sat them before us. When I went up and asked why they bumped them up before us, the hostess RUDLY looking down at me said "" You don't know the STORY"". Without apologizing she started defending herself and basically told me ""too bad"". My husband and I after waiting 30 minutes now decided to walk out because of their rudeness. A simple apology would have worked but obviously just because you're a STEAKHOUSE does not mean you have CLASS! In this economy if someone is willing to come to your restaurant whether you're an expensive steakhouse or a taco stand you should learn how to treat customers. Taylor's Steakhouse left a horrible impression on me and I will never go back! It's a waste of time and horrible service.

We just ate here yesterday for lunch. The new manager slighted us a table for another party which came in later than us. She then lied to us and said they had reservations. If so why did she write their names down after ours? Guess she didn't think we saw that. Oh well that started us off on the wrong foot and from there we just kept stumbling. The waitress was rushing around and giving the usually kick back atmosphere here a bad vibe. We ordered iced tea and then had to ask for sweetner. She took our order and then forgot to bring it. we had to ask again when the salads came. I usually get the London Broil which is very good and I like it with the Horseradish Sauce. When it came there was just steak and a bowl of steak fries, no sauce . I had to ask for that next time she came around. I could swear that the plate usualy has a vegatable or some added color also. The Fish and Chips is my husbands favorite and usually very fat and plentiful but you could hardly tell the difference between the fries and the fish sticks, he also felt the fish was not the usual halibut that he's gotten dozens of times. He was very dissapointed in the whole experience this time and we hope it was just a bad day for them,not the new management.

The bar has a tremendous atmosphere. We call in regularly for a glass of wine and end up staying for a bite to eat - Chui, the barman is at the top of his profession and knows how to look after his regulars. If you want to sit at the bar to eat the blue cheese Molly Salad with a baked potato is great
Otherwise be prepared to book well ahead of time, or wait at least 30 minutes for a seat. When you get the food you won't be disappointed though it is good rather than great (except for the Prime Rib which is excellent), and if you have a vegetarian in your party forget it.
The seating hostesses can be sullen and peremptory in their approach.
Unquestionably the attraction is the atmosphere in the bar, the quality of the bar staff and the consistency of the food.

We've eaten at Taylor's dozens of times over the past four years, and they never disappoint. We have brought along several of our friends and out-of-town guests. Whether we're having a romantic evening for two, dinner with another couple or hosting a larger gathering of eight people, we have always had a wonderful time.
The cozy ambience and attentive service, the GREAT steaks and spot-on martinis all add up to a delightful dining experience.

I was very disappointed when I went here. It took forever to get seated. The waitress who served us didn't get my order right, she was very slow and very rude! Dim lighting and comfortable furniture does not make up for substandard service!
I was so disappointed with my dining experience that not only do I vow never to eat there again, I will do my best not to let my friends make the same mistake!
Convenient parking, comfy booths, nice dark interior, friendly staff.... BUT my wife and I both ordered our steaks (she had the coulotte and I had the filet mignon) medium rare and they both came out as medium or medium rare.
We were going to send them back, but the server sort of disappeared around this time. Should have done it anyway -- it's our own fault, but still, sort of a pain to have to deal with. I'd go again, but will be sure to have the server wait while I make my first cut. Good prices, decent beer selection, small-town feel.
