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 our go to favorite restaurant. We always order the same meal. This time we ordered differently. We got the chicken and the veal chop. They were both outstanding!

    It was a Thursday night and the place was packed. It took ffor ever to get to the valet parking. There seemed to be no other option to park yourself and walk alittle which would have been much quicker. It was the same at the end - such a long wait to get your car back. The waiter service was very poor. I was 10 mins late (thanks to valet parking) and my guest was at the table waiting and had not been approached to see if she would like a drink. When the waiter did come the special list that he had to memorize was outrageousy long. When we finally got our food it was delicious alothough $40 for a sushi roll is quite high imo. I couldnt get a second glass of wine because our waiter was simply unavailable and when the bill came its was for a different table which was quite alarming at first until I saw the food was not ours. I could not find any waiter let alone ours to address the bill with and eventually asked a busboy to help me. When the waiter came back with the correct bill he proceeded to read out loud everything we had eaten like I was making some kind of fuss about my bill which simple wasnt true and it was very embarrassing. Our bill was about $120 which i was happy with but you can understand my initial alarm at the first wrong $308 bill I received . I could barely hear my guest speaking because it was incredibly loud at the bar and the music was blaring. She actually suggested that the restaurant were trying to imitate a Manhattan club. I believe that the food is excellent but they are over stretching to try to get people in the door to the bar area. This really takes away for the wonderful food. My advise to them is less is more. Focus on the the dinner guests by providing good service both valet and wating and then let your excellent food do the talking so you dont lose protential returning guests.

    I enjoyed the overall experience at Insignia and I would definitely recommend this place to others. I took my girlfriend for our anniversary and it was great. The menu is a bit pricey but the place is very upscale so it was expected. I went on a Tuesday night and took advantage of the 2 for $99 dinner which was a 3 course meal and it was worth every penny. The staff was excellent and extremely friendly. Will be paying them another visit soon.

    When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated promptly. I had requested a quiet booth, which we got, much to my surprise. Our waiter (can't remember his name, unfortunately, but he was wonderful!). He took our drink orders right away and they were served promptly. Our waiter spent at least 10 minutes flawlessly reciting the specials of the day. So many to pick from! 3 of us ordered the bone-in ribeye, which was cooked perfectly as per each of our requests, and tasted magnificent. My friend ordered a sushi and tuna special which she loved. She wanted the tuna really rare but it came out too cooked. The waiter was very apologetic, took it back to the kitchen, and a new meal was served within 5 minutes! We all had a wedge salad which 3 of us had served already chopped, while I ordered it as a wedge. I was glad I ordered mine that way as there was an overabundance of the blue cheese dressing, which I was able to move to the side of my dish, whereas the others had theirs mixed in and it was a little too heavy. The 3 others in my group ordered sushi appetizers and raved about how delicious they were (I don't eat fish so I don't know what they had). We enjoyed garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach also, which were creamy and tasty. By the time dessert came, we were stuffed, but we left a little room for the famous warm donuts with our coffee! Totally worth being stuffed for! Although the bill was high, we had a wonderful eating experience. I think the steaks were about the best steaks we ever had. There was no seasoning that we could detect, and they just about melted in your mouth. If you like sushi, this is the place to get it--as my 3 companions said over and over. All in all, a wonderful night out whether you are there for a special occasion, or to enjoy a very fine meal with some friends. I totally recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to be treated like royalty and enjoy some delicious food. I can't wait to go back!

    I think this place is much better on a weeknight than a Saturday night. The place was packed, very loud. The food took a long time to get to us, which normally isn't an issue with us but food temperatures were not where they should be and we all just dealt with it because they were too crowded and didn't feel like waiting any longer than we already have. When 4 people have a $400 bill, you should never have to just deal with it? We will never do a weekend there any more but maybe an occasional weeknight instead.

    I had not been to Insignia in nearly a year after a pair of not so pleasant dining experiences, which I found to be disconcerting, especially given the Scotto brothers ownership and all the great experiences I've had at their Blackstone's location. The good news is that has now changed: I love a classy fine-dining steakhouse experience and now I had one at Insignia. Whether it is closer supervision or the staff getting better training or more experience, dinner was excellent on all counts from our walking in to our walking out. Keep up the good work.. we will be back.

    Dining rooms are like a large cafateria, too, too many tables. Waited an hour for our table and had to carry our own drinks from the bar and to the table. At the prices being charged for cocktails and dinner there shold be a level of service to justify the cost. There is not!

    We went to insignia for our wedding anniversary. The place is gorgeous. The food was excellent. The sushi was very fresh and delicious. We also had the rib eye steak and chillean sea bass which were excellent as well. The doughnuts for dessert were incredible. It is pricey but I don't mind paying for top notch in every category.

    Great food but I was served 2 slices of filet mignon and a third piece that I would call a burnt scrap. Everyone else at my table had 3 full slices. I should have refused it but didn't. This left me with an annoyed feeling. We had to ask for refills of coffee. The tea drinkers didn't bother but were annoyed that they were ignored. When one of my tablemates complained about the size of the lobster the manager was extremely concerned and sent goodies to the table. This restaurant charges a lot but doesn't follow through unless you are willing to complain a bit. I was left with a feeling that I would rather go to a restaurant that takes care of things first, rather than this one where the patron has to be the one asking and complaining.

    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.

    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.
