    Staff was top notch! Food was pretty good. My filet Mignon was a little fatty, which was weird 😳 But they went over and beyond for my son's birthday. And it was perfect. And don't forget the truffle butter🤤❤️ Would totally recommend.

    Wow! Living in Iowa unfortunately there are no decent restaurants compared to when we lived in San Francisco this restaurant was recommended by Capital Grille employees since I told them I was sad they didn’t have a restaurant in Iowa. Well this place is just as good as Capital Grille. It was a 2 hr drive each way to get there. Well worth the traffic and drive! We will definitely be going back. It’s expensive but worth every penny. Had the 12 oz filet. Split with my husband I wanted it medium and he wanted it medium rare. They cut the meat cooks his the way he wanted it and mine like I wanted it. We split a lobster tail. Had the Brussel sprouts and for an appetizer we had the crab cake! Wow. Dessert was amazing too. If you’re impressed with clear square ice cubes my husbands manhattan had one. Just a first class joint!!!

    So consistent, always reliable place for a classy dinner whether seafood, steak, or vegetables. Reasonable corkage fee and excellent wine list (just a little pricey). Perfect for my solo meals or dates or business dinners.

    Best steak I've eaten in a long time . Welcomed by everyone we passed while being seated . Our server was Claire who led us through the menu and emphasized that since we were a party of two they could scale down anything on the menu to fit us . Salads , steak and sides were all spot on . Can't wait to return !
