Overall it was a good experience with emphasis on experience. The atmosphere itself was probably the best thing about the visit; ambiance and attention to details were evident. Service was good; when we asked for recommendations regarding the menu, we were told all of the food is amazing. Personally not a fan of the menu being on a tablet. We had to jump back and forth to look at the descriptions of items. Menu did lean more Contemporary American which seemed to contrast the atmosphere.

Food itself was on the under seasoned side (lobster bisque, walnut room salad, crab cake, salmon). It was good but not we were expecting based on the price. Overall the most flavorful item was the relish tray with house made pickles.

Would go again for a drink at the bar but that would be about it.

Our experience was fantastic! We had everyone from a 12 year old to a 91 year old and everyone found something perfect for them on the menu - and the dessert menu! We have very few dining "experiences" left these days. It was a real treat to enjoy a delicious dinner in a beautiful environment. We dined leisurely and savored the experience. Our server was fantastic and we loved talking with her. She was very knowledgeable. Thank you for making our evening out perfect!

We decided to treat ourselves to a nice night out and went the The Walnut Room for the first time and greatly enjoyed the dining experience. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. The chairs, however were slightly too low for us and the table was rather wide, so that was a slight detractor. And, I would have liked some light background music but overall we had a great time! Recommend it!!

My friend and I are seniors, so prefer early dining. This was our second visit. Too bad there isn't a senior menu to select from, but no matter, we ordered the bone-in rib eye and shared it. Guy was kind enough to present the meal with personal plates for each of us. THE BEST RIBEYE either of has ever enjoyed! The dining room is so gorgeous, we feel like royalty! Very much worth the price for a fine dining experience. We both highly recommend it.
Soon we plan to check out the Sunday Brunch

Set in a beautiful historic building which helped the overall experience. I’ve been here twice and both times the service was painfully slow. First time the waitress took 15 min to arrive at our table to greet us and we were not impressed with her, she was not a fine dining server and was not able to provide adequate service at the level this restaurant should have; we skipped bottle service because we felt the waitress couldn’t handle it. Second experience was much like the first but with a different server. Food was just okay on both occasions.

This was a special Valentine's Day menu that presented limited choices, and, at least in our experience, was not up to the usual standards of the Walnut Room. We were seated in a noisy side room next to large party, which should not have been done, esp. given that many empty tables for two remained in the main dining room. The service was very slow, and the food selection pretty limited. The main courses came with a starch but no vegetable, which is not typical for the restaurant. The desert was average, whereas the regular menu deserts are quite good.

We loved our Server Ryan, and really enjoyed our food. Went for Sunday Brunch. Would definitely go back. My only suggestion, they could offer a better breakfast potato, or at least more than the one kind. Otherwise really enjoyed everything else. Will definitely be going again.

We were very impressed with the bar service. Staff was very knowledgeable with all cocktails and was enjoyable to watch perfection in motion. Dinner was different. The online menu was extensive and we were looking forward to trying some of the offerings listed only to discover that the actual menu only had about 30% of those listed online. The onion soup was not as expected the salad was not as expected. The bone in ribeye had a great charred flavor and was enjoyable. The scallops were acceptable but not exceptional. Desert was very good. Overall not a place we are anxious to dine again. Would definitely revisit the bar.

When we made the reservation online, I was only able to hold a table and not reserve because of high demand. When we arrived at the Walnut Room we were one of two tables so I do not understand the discrepancy...this almost caused us to look for another restaurant.
The atmosphere is incredible and the service is top tier. The food was good but I think for the price a little lacking. We had ordered the bone-in ribeye which was wonderfully flavorful and cooked perfectly and also the fillet which was over-prepared and the Gorgonzola over-powered the steak . That said, The server offered to prepare a new steak but I hate holding up the meal (and for the price the temp should have been right on) I would still recommend the Walnut Room for the ambiance and the service, it was a dining experience.

Date with the wife. Restaurant was beautiful. Service was excellent. Appetizers were well presented and tasted good. She had the stuffed trout and I had the swordfish as a main course. Presentation was nice and cook on both was good. We had the creme brûlée for desert and enjoyed the variety of flavors. Food was good, service was great. We will go again

The Walnut Room is a lovely venue. The service was excellent; I arrived quite early for my reservation and they seated me right away. The food was stellar! I had to slow down eating in order to savor every bite. I wouldn’t call this a value menu. It’s a fine dining menu. If you want value, go to McDonald’s. If you want fine dining, come here.

I ordered eggs over medium my eggs were over easy. The hashbrowns were as if they were freezer burned there were only a few hashbrowns overwhelmed with onion and hard bits of I don’t know what that I had to spit out. My daughter had eggs Benedict she said they were OK not very much hollandaise sauce. The coffee was terrible even though I like strong coffee this coffee was over the top straw I couldn’t even drink it. We had my five-year-old granddaughter with us and there was no children menu. They weren’t very busy and the service was very slow. I did not complain because I did not want to have to wait any longer for our food. The waiter bragged about the sticky buns so we ordered one and I swear it was left over from The day before. I have been in the restaurant business I know I should’ve complained but we didn’t have the time to sit and wait after all it was Christmas Eve and we had other things to do. I will not be back.

The Walnut Room was wonderful. The room itself was tad bit noisy for my taste, but we also had a very loud party behind us. The service was amazing. We had Laura, who was a delight, and gave us some great recommendations including the Elk Loin. This was the first quality fine dining experience we have had in Green Bay. Our food was more than perfect, it was an entire experience and the spinach salad was the best salad I have ever had in my life. We also enjoyed the calamari appetizer, French onion soup, duck and waffle entree and the chocolate hazelnut cake. It was all spectacular.

Room decor and concept is elegant. Service attentive except bar tender was off putting. Food choices good but not the "wow" factor given the pricing. Each plate should be perfect and 2/4 entrees not. Steak was rare with cold center when ordered medium and roasted chicken tender but no sauce (or forgotten) with vegetables cold. Lots of high end competition in the area so hopefully it was just an off night for the chef.

Waited over 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. I was surprised when the dining room wasn't full, with a wait that long I expected every table to be full. Took another 15-20 min for our server to take out drink order, repeat for dinner order. This was a Saturday night reservation made weeks in advance. Were they significantly understaffed, on a Saturday, the night before a home Packers game? GM was very nice, as was our server. Food was good very good, interesting menu options. Kinks to work out before I'd go back.

I love the character of the building. The ambiance is so charming. The food is wonderful. I love how the menu is set up. You choose an entree which has a vegetable, but you can order other sides as well. As a bonus, they surprised us with free hors d'oeuvres between our courses!

The service was excellent. The ambiance was very good, but not excellent. For what I would expect for a high-end restaurant, the dining room seemed a little plain and the food, while excellent, could have been more inventive. I would dine there again. I did appreciate the fact that it was not noisy. Unlike some restaurants in Green Bay, we could actually hear each other speaking.

I would recommend the Walnut Room....but the chef needs to know that Swordfish should be served moist. The last couple bites of my swordfish were so dry, it couldn't be eaten.
And for me, when food isn't perfectly cooked, the price tag shouldn't be $31.00.
The Caesar is not worth $8.00. Very small with hardly any lettuce. I'm not sure what happened to The Walnut Room,....when it first opened, I never had a bad meal and the caesar was much better.
The ambiance is wonderful and it's worthy to be seen.
