A word from Insignia Prime Steak & Sushi
Insignia is the newest fine dining restaurant from Anthony Scotto - proprietor of Blackstone & Rare650 Steakhouses.
Like its predecessors, Insignia's inspired menu will feature the finest prime dry-aged steaks and the freshest Sushi & Seafood, including Mediterranean whole fish, served up in a chic, elegant atmosphere that is also a feast for the eyes. Picture a historic North shore mansion with cedar shakes, quarried stone and a beautiful turret combined with the energy and vibe of a trendy Manhattan restaurant. "That's Insignia" stated Mr. Scotto, "It's refreshingly unique."

    This is so much more than a steak house. There were seafood entrees that I never had a chance to try but they sounded so delicious. The steaks that we did have were some of the best in the area. We had 5:30 reservations on a weekday evening and by the time we were settling the tab the place exploded with activity and the noise level went off the charts.

    Went here on my sons request for his 18th birthday as we live in the neighborhood and pass it all the time. We had a six o'clock reservation and were on time. The restaurant was empty at that point but they sat us for some reason in the bar which I found strange but went with it. My husband and sons are all well over 6'2" and i felt as though the booth table was a bit tight for two sitting on one side as far as we were bumping elbows. Next time I will ask for a regular table away from bar. The bar is VERY noisy but would be great for drinks after work. Food was average and honestly the steaks at the restaurant down the road are much tastier. Probably wouldn't go here for dinner again.

    I had no major complaints, however I was expecting greatness and not just an ordinary dinner. My wife shares my feelings. The service was excellent. Our appetizers were very good. My dinner jus had no wow factor to it, not for the money we paid. It was just a good ordinary dinner you could get at any casual restaurant. Not what I was expecting. Was looking to dine at an above all level.

    The food was good, service was a little slow but acceptible for a Saturday night. The main problem is the restaurant is large and open so it is very very loud. It is so loud that it is nearly impossible to hear the other people at your table speak. I have been to other restaurants owned by the scotto brothers and they are more sectioned off which lends to a quieter environment.

    Simply put, we love Insignia! We had our daughters wedding there last November, including the ceremony itself. The staff went completely out of their way to accommodate us with each and every detail. We still have people telling us it was the best wedding they have ever attended! The entire occasion didn't have that "catered" vibe, and the food from beginning to end was memorable! As far as just having dinner, I could go on and on...its amazing! If you haven't tried Insignia you need to experience it for yourself.

    Not the best of notes to be at Insignia. There was a private party which took up a good part of the restaurants available tables. It was busy with other larger tables so we opted to sit in the outside area in the bar. That was ok since it was not as noisy but a little cool. We had a problem with our port house for 2 but it was promptly removed and replaced with the addition of extra sides which was very nice. The manager came to the table to apologize as well. It was all handled very nicely and professionally. I would definitely return.

    This was our first time at Insignia...we had heard great things from friends and relatives and finally had an opportunity to see for ourselves. The food was absolutely terrific - the service and atmosphere top notch. Although it is expensive, it is worth EVERY penny and we will most definitely be back again.

    I had heard that Insignia was on the pricey side. I took my wife there because i had recieved a gift card from an associate for Christmas. We had 6:30 reservation and were seated immediatly. The restaurant was full and there were alot of waiters. Our waiter came within a few minutes. We ordered drinks, which were very good. I was taken back by the prices although I knew it was going to be expensive. My wife ordered the stuffed shrimp which she said were very good. I ordered a $54 steak and a $9 baked potato. Our food came quickly which i was suprised because a great steak typically takes time. I wasnt impressed with it. I made comment to my wife that I have made better steaks on my BBQ at home. $280 later..I wont be going back.

    I took my husband here for his Birthday, and it was the first time for both of us, and we pass it all the time, and always say we will be going here ONE day. The restaurant is upscale, so naturally it was pricy ( example...we got oysters, was a special occasion...and it was 5.00 an oyster, but the BEST EVER, we had NO regrets). The rest of the food was amazing and even the next day, the leftovers were just as delicious. We know that for us, this is a special occasion type restaurant, but between the décor/ambiance/food/and service, it will NOT be the last time.

    I came just to have dinner, yet I left with an experience. Not knowing this but Wednesdays is their 1/2 price on premium wine bottles night which we certainly took advantage of. Half price on Caymus, SOLD. The wine somm, Joe, was extremely courteous and knowledgable with regards to his extensive wine list. Our servers, Damien and Florin couldn't have been more attentive to us, satisfying our every need. I realized this evening that no matter where you go these days you're spending money (my girlfriend and I went to TGI Fridays 2 weeks ago and our bill was $120 for the 2 of us). For just a little bit more money we went to Insignia and got the dinner of a lifetime. Many thanks goes out to the staff at Insignia for a wonderful evening!

    eh, for the price there are many other places to go. the food was just ok, a couple we dined with ordered the steak for 2 which had a huge ligament through it which made it almost inedible. anyone preparing the food should've seen that and not served it. The manager did the right thing and took it off the bill however, it put a damper on the experience. the scene there is just that...a "scene". Very showy and not my first choice in atmosphere for dinner. bottom line..if you want a good steak go somewhere else. If you want to show off and be seen go here.

    We went to Insignia to see if it was fit for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The staff could not have been nicer, from our first phone call to the dessert platter they complimented us. Steak houses are notorious for over pricing. The steaks were delicious and well priced. We are passing our review on the the parents of the groom

    My wife & I wanted to get away for a nice romantic dinner due to a hectic summer work schedule & to celebrate now that we are expecting our first child in january. The staff was amazing & made my wife glow while they chatted her up about her adventures to come as a mother. They have a wine specialist on staff (sorry he has a cooler name than that but I'm not down with the lingo) who picked the perfect wine that I enjoyed. The whole experience was great, the restaurant is unbelievable clean & beautiful! To top it off they brought my wife her dessert with a cool sparkle candle to congratulate us! Insignia is second to none and should be a must go for any special occasion!

    Usually love this place for special occasion, business dinner, romantic dinner or fancy dinner with other couples. Last two times I ordered the fish (dover sole and branzino), and each time they did a bad removing the bones and the dinner was not enjoyable and most was not able to be eaten (not a few small bones, but literally every bit and dozens of bones). While I understand that removing bones from fish is not easy, I expect it to done professionally for the money paid. Could use some music in the room.
