    Very nice dinner. LOVED the fried green tomatoes appetizer. Husband loved the Little Hilbo rib eye. I ordered the vegetarian option and was disappointed. The artichokes were woody and the sauce was too sour. Service was really good but not excellent. This was our second visit and our first visit was so perfect, our expectations may have been too high! But we will definitely be back.

    Entrees were good, not great or inspiring. Where was the "soul"? Filet was decent, mashed potatoes were more smashed than mashed and had no flavor. The Hilbo butter was cold and barely even melted on the steak. The scallops were big, but lacked flavor as well. I guess having later dinner reservations means you get the run down in the kitchen and food is what it is. Really was expecting more flavor from our dishes. The best thing we had was the lemon flavored butter with the complimentary bread.

    We were seated in a little private nook away from the main room which was a very nice touch. The food was phenomenal (we had the ribeye and the filet, both medium rare). Definitely worth returning!

    Food was good here. Not great. Not as good as what we were expecting. Service was okay. Our waiter definitely lost interest in us when a table of four got sat in his section and they were clearly running up a big bill. I had asked him for a wine recommendation to go with my meal and he was going to check on it and definitely forgot about it. My friend asked him to bring the check and he came back and we had to ask for the check again. He responded like this was his first time being asked for it. Not a great experience with him. Ambiance is incredible! The restaurant has all this exposed brick underground and was pretty awesome! This made the experience more worthwhile. Overall though, the restaurant definitely did not live up to the hype!
