Ounce Steakhouse reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A little bright

    First notable thing was the lighting. It was too bright. The next thing noticeable was the great service. The food was good despite the overcooked +$40 steak.

    Dined on 11/16/2013
    The food was mediocre at best and the service was slow. There were long gaps of time between each course. We arrived about 15 minutes early and even though there were many table available, we were taken to the bar to wait. They were out of their special filet which I thought unusual for an early Saturday evening reservation time. The regular filet tasted like a sirloin steak and not a filet. They had lots of empty tables available when we left which would have been prime time Saturday evening dining. That sort of tells tale. Their prices are way too high for the quality of food. We will never recommend or return to this restaurant.

    I returned to the Ounce on my birthday. My previous visit with friends was a wonderful experience. That was just over a year ago. This recent dining experience left much to be desired. The greatest source of disappointment came from our waiter who for some reason seemed to have been tasked with serving a far greater proportion of tables than the other wait staff. He was literally having to walk very briskly from one end of the restaurant to the other the entire evening. As a result, his visits to our table were few and far between. Overall, we viewed the 6:30 RSVP and the 7:40 arrival of our food as completely unacceptable. My wife was extremely perturbed, but I tried to make the best of it. Sorry to say, the Ounce is losing it's touch.

    While only a few other local steakhouses come close to quality, Ounce still tops them with service. Servers are always very attentive to your needs, not overly,though. Also, the ambiance is so much better here. The other comparable steakhouses are entirely too noisy and overcrowded. Ounce is still our favorite.

    Went for our two year anniversary. Table was perfect for what I wanted(quiet, away from crowds), brought us champagne toast, salad, entrees and sides were delicious(wedge, ancho chile ribeye, BBQ shrimp, scalloped potatoes and grilled asparagus) and then we even had cotton candy for dessert! Great night and wonderfully attentive staff who went above and beyond to make our night special! Will go back!

    Dined on 10/12/2013
    When I go to chilis and the guy overcooks my steak, I can understand, but when I. Go to a prime steakhouse, there is no excuse for sending out a steak medium well when it was ordered medium rare. Then they were out of the 18oz bone in ribeye, so the waiter offered me the wagu ribeye for the same price, the steak was good but not worth the price on the menu. Our server did a fantastic job keeping our drinks filled and was the only thing that made the evening tolerable. That said I dont think I will be going back there again.

    This was a second chance visit. The food did not disappoint but the service was worse than the first time. Our waiter was terrible. The icing on the cake was when they brought us the bill and we hadn't ordered desert yet. I guess he assumed we didn't need the extra calories.

    This comfortable restaurant features a lot of dark woods and native stonework inside. The wait staff is very attentive and accommodating. The wine list is affordable, as our most menu items. The filet is as good as any at other high-end steakhouses. Overall, very good value.

    I had read some reviews of previous diners' experiences at Ounce being less than what was desired so we were a bit concerned about going there for our anniversary. Our experience, however, was quite pleasant. We arrived around 6:00P for our reservation and were promptly seated and greeted by our waiter. Neither of us had beef as we were not in the mood for a heavy meal so we had shrimp & chilean sea bass as our entrees (both quite nice). The manager visited the table just to check in on us twice and we were offered a nice change with cotton candy for dessert. Overall we had a nice experience will be returning when we have a craving for steak. Our waiter Sergio was excellent even for his first night on the job.

    6:00 reservation, seated immediately. Upstairs dining room has great view but the ventilation was rather noisy. Hard to hear conversation across the table. Many of the listed wines not available. How does that happen so early on a Friday night? Onion soup not traditional with lots of cheese but very tasty. Steaks (bone in rib eye and tenderloin) cooked perfectly and tasted great. Au Gratin potatoes tasted good but not hot when served. Creamed spinach good but a little of the raw flour taste lingered. Service was very friendly and attentive.

    Despite reservation, table was not ready upon arrival. Very attentive and helpful waiter, who was great throughout. But the restaurant is noisy and the food is nothing special. Lots of little details that don't add up to anything worth the prices charged here. Filet mignon was unevenly cooked (medium well on one end, medium rare on the other). Wedge salad was smothered in too much dressing. Decent cheesecake was covered in Hershey's chocolate syrup--tasty dessert, but not fine dining. We head to another steakhouse instead next time.

    We had a reservation on a Tuesday night for 7:30 p.m., we arrived early around 7:10 p.m. so we didn't mind waiting at the bar for a bit. Unfortunately, we didn't just wait at the bar for a few minutes, we waited at the bar for an hour and a half! I finally got upset when I saw the manager seat 2 tables that had arrived after we did and confronted him about it. He apologized and said that he would have our table ready in a few minutes, well I was no longer willing to wait anymore and had a nice drive-thru dinner at Chik-fil-a! Don't go there, horrible service!!!

    I had a bad experience at Ounce in the past but was giving it a second chance. Failed again. From initial check in where they couldn't find my reservation --- but then did. To 1/2 hour later when still not seated were told we didn't have a reservation by the same person who finally found it when we first arrived. To seeing others seated after us ordering and getting their food before we ever saw a waiter. To the manager stepping in to take our order and explaining he had a number of staff walk out on him (same execuse as last time). To OK steaks -- if I was at Denny's.... Missing food, wrong food delivered, not everyone served at the same time. Since it was the manager who waitied on us we left no tip. Appropriate? Need I say more?

    Ounce was one of my favorite restaurants, this time they fell way short. In my reservation I stated it was my daughter,s birthday, there was no acknowledgment of it. The music was very loud for dining. I orderd champagne, they were out of 2 different ones, so they gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne. They were out of salmon which my daughter ordered. This was her 1st visit to Ounce and she was not impressed and would NOT go back, I was very disapointed also. My last visit to Ounce was Valentine's Day with my boyfriend, we were a bit disapointed but we cut them some slack sence it is a VERY busy evening. I will have to think about trying Ounce again sence it is a lot of money for a disapointing dining experience.

    Poor service, I don't have enough characters to type all the incidents that happened during our dinner. Overall, I just felt like the place is run by the same staff that might run an Applebee's (no offense to Applebee's Employees). If I'm going to pay a little extra for meal, I expect the staff to be great and the food to be great too. Everything about Ounce was below average.

    The steak was excellent. The Sea Bass was good, but not special. Service was good, but the soup, which was tasty, was sloshed around in the bowl and splashed up on the rim. Made a poor presentation. After it was served, we were asked if we would like it cleaned up. Huh? We will go back, but just short of an outstanding experience.

    I took my daughter to Ounce to celebrate a birthday. We dined early and the place was pretty full by 5:30. She had the filet mignon and I had the ribeye, both cooked medium rare. The filwt was perfect. The ribeye wasn't very flavorful and was pretty cold after a short period of time. My daughter ordered a coke which never arrived. The music was kinda loud and was a jazzy type. Overall, for a $120.00 meal, I was not blown away like some of the other places in town.

    My reservation was for 5:30...and we did not get out of there until 8:25!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so furious. I have never been at a restaurant for 3 hours. We watched as tables downstairs came and went. I do not understand if it was the waiter or the just lack of kitchen staff but OMG!! My whole section was getting mad. Then our leftovers went into someone else's bag. Then our ticket was wrong and had to be sent back TWICE!!! I was so mad at the whole experience. I will never go back!!!

    For our anniversary, I chose Ounce to celebrate the day. When we arrived we were given a glass of champagne to congratulate us on the occasion. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable throughout the night without being overbearing. We chose the chilled seafood appetizers which was a great mix of lobster, crab, shrimp and oysters. This was a a perfect way to start the night. For dinner, we inquired about the special "akauashi" beef. Two grades above Kobe, we had to try it (yes, it's a splurge). Cooked perfectly and worth the price. They have it available in any portion you like. Incredible dinner, impeccable service, and amazing atmosphere, made our night perfect!

    Ounces is a great date night choice for dinner. Good is excellent & the wine list is robust with unlimited choices. Best if all was the service. John our server was one of the best we have had in a long time. We never had to ask for anything as he & the support staff were on top of it all.

  • "market price" --- you always ask
    sgtbigbird
    Dined on 9/12/2013
    The quality of this restaurant is outstanding. However, we did not ask what the current "market price" was for a cut of filet beef was, therefore, we were shocked when the bill for the meal arrived. It was my fault for not asking....$240.00 @ pound is rather expensive. And, the quality of this cut of beef DID NOT match the price!!!---But, that was the only disappointment in the whole evening---everything else: service, quality of side dishes, and atmosphere were EXCELLENT... So, in the end, the evening was special, it just cost $120 more than I expected....But, again, it was my bad for not asking!!!!.... Now I know better...!!!!.

    We decided to order the house specialty Akaushi beef. I ordered the 6 onion soup, a ceasar salad, and au gratin potatoes while my husband ordered a wedge salad, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, and shared my potatoes. Even though I had asked for my salad first, I got the soup with they brought my husband's salad. The soup was amazing! Similar to a French onion soup. Then my salad came. The presentation was nice, but there was no flavor. I sent it back. Our entrees arrived cooked to order. My husband enjoyed the steak, saying that this was the best steak he had ever had. As for me, it was steak, but the au jus sauce on the plate was incredible. The potatoes were good as was the spinach, flavorful but not overwhelming.

    This place was better than Ruth Chris steakhouse, if you are a Lamb fan I strongly recommend the lamb. The menu is al la cart and extremely expensive but my experience was well worth it we got an appetizer a bottle of wine a steak (12 oz filet) rack of lamb and two sides for almost 180.00 tip big because there are a lot of guys there helping the main waiter and I know he has to split it with them

    Atmosphere was appropriate for a couple celebrating an anniversary or a small group meeting for dinner. Service was timed perfect, we did not feel rushed. A little on the pricey side, however you can share without additional fee. Steak was cooked perfect. Sides and salads were large enough to share.
