This was our first visit and expected a more conversational atmosphere rather than the noisy, bustling environment that made couples dining very difficult. The ribeye special was fair but nothing special but can say The Caesar salad was very good. Our waiter, Jared, was very attentive and most efficient.

We had a great dinner for our anniversary. Brian was terrific and made some great suggestions for appetizer (ahi tuna), dinner (filet Med-rare) and dessert (flan). We even received 2-complimentary glasses of rose champagne for our anniversary. Parking was a breeze, ambiance classy and cozy. Couldn't find a fault. Only recommendation I would offer is to add some Napa/Sonoma favorites such as Far Niente, Silver Oak, Caymus, Trefethen, Opus One. We did not recognize any of the wine vintages on the very extensive menu. Although we may not be the most sophisticated drinkers. Loved A-Restaurant. Will come again soon! THUMBS UP!

It was our anniversary but the hostess neglected to tell our waiter, so it was never acknowledged. The hostess appeared aloof, disinterested, looking down at her phone when we walked in......wonder if she was working on homework or reading a novel while she was working with us....?

The steaks are expensive, but delicious! In order to avoid the 50+ dollar price tag of most of the steaks, I ordered the Coulotte Wagu steak at $38. It looks much like a fillet mignon, ordered it medium rare, and it melted in my mouth! Delicious! My husband enjoyed the steak tartare. We would definitely return. One bit of advice, the wine list is expensive, with no ‘good choices’ under $75....we settled on a Paulmeyer Chardonnay at $80....Next time we will bring our own bottle from our cellar and pay the corkage fee!

After making our way through the smokers on the patio, we were greeted by A gracious hostess at kiosk. Knowledgeable waiter. Cheese and Spanish chorizo excellent. Found a reasonable priced delicious Malbec. Roasted beets were wonderful. Was not impressed with the puff pastry crust of pot pie. Duck leg was very tender, however the breast was tough and chewy. Noise level was way too loud. Most patrons around us were on their smart phones. It felt more like a bar (quite a bit of vulgar language) and pick up scene than a cozy restaurant, maybe midweek nights are quieter. Overall we enjoyed our experience.

This place is great and I loved it. Saturday night I had a reservation for 8:45PM to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. We arrived a little early and got a drink at the bar. Although the bar was really packed and the noise levels were energetic, I was able to get the bartenders attention and secure a drink in short order. We stood and enjoyed the ambience while enjoying our drinks which were nicely poured. In a short time one of the hostesses came over and showed us to our table which was awesome. The dinner and service were some of the best I've ever experienced. Really nice place which I can recommend with no hesitation.
