Thank you to Restaurant.com for providing me with a gift card to purchase gift certificates to my choice of any restaurant(s) as part of their Review Crew. These are my own honest opinions.
This is the second Restaurant.com review of mine in a series of 4 that I will be conducting over a span of 6 months as a part of their Review Crew. Have you heard of Restaurant.com?
“The only thing better than going out for a great meal, is getting a great deal. Restaurant.com has been filling tables since 1999 and is the destination for dining whether you like to plan ahead or find a meal on the go. Restaurant.com helps diners discover the perfect dining experience and boasts nearly 50,000 dining deals available every day, even on the weekends! And, the deals are easy to use – present the certificate to the server on a mobile device, or print out a copy, and voilà – the savings will be deducted from your final bill. Bon Appétit!”
My husband and I were trying to think of a good place to go for a rare date night sans kids. We wanted to visit some place that we hadn’t been before and I was in the mood for steak. We hopped on the restaurant.com website, typed in our zip code and the radius in which we were wanting to search and bam! We found CK’s Steakhouse that is actually less than 15 minutes away from us!
CK’s is actually nested inside of the Quail Hollow Resort – a beautiful hotel and golf course that we have been to before for several weddings. I never realized this restaurant was inside it and it is quite the gem! I wasted no time ordering a glass of Malbec and enjoyed the bread and butter as well as my side salad.
The dinner menu is fabulous and allows for plenty of options but doesn’t make your head spin.
I am a sucker for Ahi Tuna and decided to go with that instead of the steak I had on the brain prior. It was absolutely delicious, perfectly done and the asparagus that came with it was incredible!
Aside from the food being a huge hit, the restaurant itself was clean, the staff was extremely friendly and we felt well-waited on. They accepted reservations, which is a big plus for weekend dinner plans, too!
How did restaurant.com inprove this restaurant experience for me?
First, it was thanks to Restaurant.com that we selected CK’s Steakhouse to try. Secondly, knowing that we were going into the restaurant with a $50 certificate (available for purchase for just $20!) in hand and that we could apply that to a minimum $75 order was very nice and a great savings!
