Husband and I were travelling with friends on vacation. We chose The Generals Restaurant in the historic DeSota House hotel downtown. So glad we did. Our waitress was Victoria - the best ever service and evening because of her genuine desire for us to enjoy our dining experience. The food was incredibly delicious. We started with a crab bisque. I highly recommend the Chicken Roulade as well as the Chilean Sea Bass. We had a wonderful bottle of Chardonnay and carrot cake for dessert. The atmosphere is sophisticated yet comfortable - very relaxing lighting with dark furniture.

We did not stay at the hotel but plan to in the future - it is a remarkably renovated historic building - everything so tastefully done. A most enjoyable evening!

The General's Restaurant downstairs at the DeSoto House Hotel is a great place for a romantic, ellegant dinner. Menu has great options. Don't forget desert.

The blue cheese soup was rich and tasty. It was not a heavy blue cheese flavor, but just enough to give the intense flavor without being overbearing. The tortellini carbonara was amazing. It was creamy, flavorful, pasta cooked appropriately, nice amount of peas and bacon...delicious!

Our waiter, Jeff, was very nice, attentive and funny. He interacted with us just enough, but not so much that we were not able to visit.

I would highly recommend this restaurant whether or not you are staying at the DeSoto hotel.

We tried The Generals’ Restaurant for the first time this weekend. The filet was the best steak I’ve ever had. It melted in my mouth...so tender. The bacon wrapped shrimp were very tasty as well. The service was not as great as the food. Server was friendly, just not attentive. Many times we had empty drinks. He never came back to check on our food until we were almost finished. I would still go back again though.

Quality steak and fish but waited about an hour between being seated and getting appetizer. Then soups came out 5 minutes before entrees. Food was very good. Server was friendly. Not all staff spoke English: asked one woman a question; she waived it off then avoided our table. Would have enjoyed it more with better service!
