    For the price of the steaks I expect top notch service. Our server started off good until she forgot to put our order in. The manager said they got busy and we would just have to wait. That was 1:30 hours into our dinner. How long should we have to wait?

    The staff was kind but seemed short-staff. Our server was friendly and attentive but everything too quite a long time. Unfortunately not the experience I was hoping for. Will give it another shot but generally disappointed.

    I had a reservation at 8:00 pm & had to wait for about 40 minutes before we were seated. Our food took a long time as well. I ordered a medium cooked steak & it was well done on one end, medium in the middle & very rare on the other end. My date had the seafood skewers & they were very overcooked. They could not be eaten. It was a very disappointing experience considering what we paid.

    Valentine’s Day rush was expected so I made reservations ahead of time for 6:30. We were not seated until 7:15 and did not receive meal until after 8. Food was outstanding but the wait was aggravating.

    Very dirty, chandelier when you walk in full of cobwebs Menu was paper and fit a steak house selection was odd, you can get steak but also curry and other Asian options. Seems to have an identity issue. The salad was also a combination of 2 different kinds of lettuce, iceberg combined with greens. maybe they ran out of one? Very limited wine menu maybe 15 options, they were out of the only Sauvignon Blanc they carried. Seafood really means just fish. Steak was good and cooked properly but the sides were so full of Panko you had to scoop it off.

    We enjoyed New Year’s Eve dinner at this restaurant. Our waitress was very attentive and conversational. She had good recommendations from the menu. I had the NY strip with hash browns and shrimp. Both were excellent. My wide had a 3 1/2 ounce steak with potatoes. The restaurant was wonderful

    Ordered pasta dishes and they were both Excellent! However, the prices for steaks was outrageous...not sure if that is driven by the cost of beef or not.

    Took 15 minutes to get a server to our table first of all. After that the waitress tried hard but the kitchen apparently was terrible. Took 1.5 hours from getting there until food finally came. Offered no consolation what so ever. Will not go back. Had a 1 year old and couldn’t even get Mac n cheese brought early for him. Frustrating holiday family meal.

    We did not try the beef just because we have our own homegrown beef and eat it every day. We had seafood. My walleye was very good. The dip we had as an appetizer was outstanding. The problem was the sides. You have to pay for them. The cost on this place is high. So to realize you are paying for your sides was a shock. The sides were so rich and heavy, I had about 3 bites. My husband said same. I barely ate any entree. My advice, look to split the sides as the portions are huge and heavy. For the price, we will not go back.

    Moved me after I sat down. We’re slow to start, then brought all my courses out within 5 minutes of each other. Waitress was unpleasant. The salmon was dry (and cold when I started eating it, since it was brought out right after I got my salad). For the price point of the restaurant, it was very disappointing.

    Honestly the food and serving service was good we were here on a Wednesday night. We had a very polite younger guy with shaggy darker blonde hair as our server and I don’t think there was anything he didn’t do, he went above and beyond expectations to serve us which flipped our experience for us. The hosting of this place is terrible. Came early for our reservation and waited for 40 minutes after our reservation on open table and NOT ONE server said “hi”or “we will be right with you” or anything. The worst part is we heard one server tell another to NOT seat us while in the hallway and both turned and walked away without letting us know they know we are there but it was quite loud especially when I’m saying “mam” trying to get their attention. Our server was the only one who smiled at us while we were sitting for quite a while and came to grab us to seat us immediately the first time we even saw him walk by. Everyone else wouldn’t even look at us or acknowledge us like we were invisible. And I tried saying something multiple times to the girls walking by but I wasn’t worth their time. We said at 45 minutes after res. time we would leave and lucky enough he came to say hi and sat us. I understand a staff shortage, it’s everywhere, but manners and keeping a customer informed is important. As one of the most expensive restaurants in Bismarck, if a party of 2 is spending $200 or more on food plus another 50-75 on tip there should be a ton more on communication and respect. But I will return, our server definitely made the wait worth it and food is very well made and came out in timely manner.

    The food was outstanding, as usual. The place was understaffed. I counted a total of 4 servers, which included the bar tender who was also mixing and pouring all beverages (including soda and water) for the restaurant. She was our server and did the best she could as did the other 3 servers. I believe it was an unexpected crowd. We had stopped at a big name steakhouse chain first at 4:30pm, only to be told their dishwasher was down and would be at least a 2+ hour wait. I think many people, including us, then went to 40. Hopefully, 40 had at least one back up server they were able to contact to come in and assist with the crowd.
