Food and service is always on point. Prices have risen across the board for steaks by roughly 25% though.

We had the aged ribeye, roasted brussel sprouts, crawfish macaroni, redfish on half shell with lumped crab meat, AMAZING. Best we have ever had. Our waiter did a great job checking on us and keeping us entertained. You would have thought we knew him outside the restaurant. Definitely will be going again.

The filet was very delicious. It was cooked perfectly for all 3 of us. The wedge salad was enough for two. We split it and had more than enough for 2. The only thing was our bake potato was not really hot and really not worth the price. The barbeque shrimp appetizer was also delicious. Definitely worth going there again. Probably the best steak I have had in a long time.

The view to the "balcony" is actually a smokers retreat often plagued with people having impromptu photo shoots. The cocktails were watered down.

The service was outstanding. We like to eat seafood and there was not an adequate amount of choices. We ordered the snapper and it would have been better with a sauce so it was on the dry side. I had a Caesar salad and it on the dry side. I had the tirmisu cheesecake and it was very dry. The ambiance was very good. Our waiter was very personable.

The dry aged steak was of moderate quality. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't top notch compared to other fine dining establishments. The sides are awesome, we had the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin. We also enjoyed the wine (Son of a Butcher) and the mixed drinks. Overall it was a pleasurable experience post-quarantine. Would recommend if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing dinner experience. Waitstaff was very attentive.

The food was good but not excellent. The wagyu was just ok. I’ve had better steak fur half the price. The filet was rather tasty ( better than the wagyu. The Sensation Salad was bitter. Service was good and salads came out right away. We waited 50 minutes for our steaks and they weren’t very busy at all. The manager offered apologies, so there’s that. Overall, it was fine, but I wasn’t impressed enough to want to go back or recommend it to others.

Very pretty restaurant . Was seated quickly with great hostess and waiter was attentive. We ordered the porterhouse for 2 which did not come precut , we also had to ask for an additional plate. The filet was fatty but was cooked Pittsburgh style and correct temperature. Meat itself was tough and not much a flavor. The waiter advised that aides where generous portions which’s was untrue the Mac and cheese lobster was not would not even be enough for one person much less a shareable. Not sure we will come back. But service was top notch! Sadly I had looked forward to ordering their bone marrow app was told they had ran out. We did try their quail and it was delicious was probably the best thing we ate that evening.

I planned a date night out for my wife and made reservations. When we got there I had a cocktail and we ordered a nice bottle of wine along with an appetizer. After ordering dinner and waiting the manager finally came out and said they had overcooked my meal, we told him that was fine we would wait and that it would not be a problem. I stated to the waiter that my only concern was that my wifes food would still be hot and he said the kitchen would make sure it was. When we finally got our food, my wifes dinner was cold, including the potato and my dinner was cold as well. I had the manager actually touch my food and he agreed it was all cold. They wanted to recook the meal and at this point we said no. We ended up eating at the stadium restaurant.

Several of the sides were room temp. My redfish was over cooked.
Service wasnt at the level of the prices. The cocktail menu wasnt explained and it took over 15 minutes for waiter to come back and ask for our drink order.
When we made the reservation we asked for window seats on the river- we did this twice - first for four people then again when we asked to add another person. In fact were told to change time to Accommodate the seating request. Even though you called to confirm - it wasnt until we arrived with my 89 year old Mom were told only two tops get to sit at the windows. No apologie.
Wont go back. We had much better food and only slightly better Service when we went in December.

We ordered the Valentine meal. It was awful. The steak was undercooked and it ade me sick after we left the restaurant. The lobster was the best thing. The bread was cold and the potatoes were nasty. It was too much sauce on the potatoes. The dessert was evening nasty a cold brownie with a teaspoon of ice cream for two people come on people be more realistic. People want a nice warm dessert when serving ice cream or gelato with it. We had to keep telling the waiter to bring us things. It was a terrible dining experience and could have definitely spent our money somewhere else with a better quality of food and service. Overall it was a terrible experience and woul not recommend anyone spend their valentine there.

Our appetizer (lobster) was raw and sent back. Manager apologized but that’s about it, no comp. Their tenderloin was bland and tough, we asked for medium and received well done. No salt and pepper on the tables. Had to chase the waiter down for a cocktail refill. Never going again.
