I've walked past here a few times, and finally had the chance to actually go in. Much like other reviewers have pointed out, the place is pretty homey, with the waiters just chilling at the bar and chatting among themselves. Ian H, being a plantain fiend, ordered the Plantano, and when it came, kept making noises of extreme happiness every time he put a piece in his mouth. 20 minutes later, our main dishes came out. I had the N'dole, which is some sort of lamb in a very heavy peanut/spinach sauce with couscous. Unfortunately, while the lamb itself was tender, the sauce was overly heavy and salty and overpowered any flavor that the lamb itself had. The couscous was pretty dry flavorless too. Meanwhile Ian had the grilled chicken kebab with salad, which he seemed to like, but once again, seemed too dry to me. In the end though, at least the food was interesting, and Ian liked it, so a three star review is what it gets!

My friends and I stumbled in here to check things out. We were on a mission to nowhere and weren't sure where that led. Well, we landed inside Downtown. This was after the HUGE storm that hit downtown as well as the beginning of a 3 day weekend. I counted all of the patrons of the entire club on one hand. After debating on whether or not to go in, we were informed that there were 2 dollar drinks for the ladies. Sold! No hurt in checking it out, right? The interior of the place is very nice. Dark wood, wrought iron. Chic. Our bartender Dave was very nice and he was a great pour. He was willing to have a friendly chat with the three of us and was very polite. He encouraged us to come back on a Saturday night as it was Latin night. I might have to check it out! I'm surprised I haven't yet! The dance floor was completely empty. We had it to ourselves the majority of the time. The tunes the DJ was playing were good. We danced as much as we could until we felt silly. Hey at least we were being good sports. The one thing that I would change is the bathroom....ick. For being such a nice place, you would think the bathroom would be nice...it wasn't. I would like to come back to Downtown when it's busy and see how the crowd is. Maybe a Latin Night is in order!

There are a lot of things to recommend The Majestic. The food is not one of those things. The Majestic is an old fashioned 50s style diner. It's totally kit sh and late night on the weekends fills with hipsters who spill out of MJQ tired and hungry from dancing and looking for something greasy. And boy did they come to the right place. Almost everything at The Majestic's is greasy. The eggs. The fries. The servers. But the pancakes aren't bad.
