101 W. Franklin St. at the Jefferson Hotel
Second Place: Heritage
Third Place: Pasture
Expect professional and gracious service from the five-diamond Jefferson Hotel, which doesn't leave diners disappointed. Oftentimes a server will notice a guest needs something before the guest does. This is one restaurant that doesn't have an off night. Its staff is too well-trained and attuned to the overall experience of its guests to allow such a lapse. When Heritage opened, it assembled some of the top servers in the city to create its staff, which is evident from the attentive and knowledgeable service that is standard. At Pasture, co-owner Michele Jones is a sunny presence in the dining room, and her staff reflects her commitment to making every guest feel welcome and cared for.
