Love that the steaks are grass fed and am happy to pay more for it. Excellent seasoning and taste!

I picked Ballentines for my birthday dinner based off their menu online, and a couple reviews I read. Every thing was great except the service, the waitress seemed to come from the back every 20 minutes , and we didn't see her on the floor in between. We must have been her only table, the other tables seemed to be well attended to, was kind of a weird experience.
The food was great, 3 entrees, and a large sushi roll, drinks were good, and a nice variety.
I'll definitely go back, but will probably sit at the bar.

Great food. Interesting specials & expanded sushi menu. Plenty of non-sushi offerings like a delicious pretzel chicken dish & wood-fired pizzas. Friendly server. We happened to be there on the night of a bar crawl so the noise became louder than usual. Our server apologized profusely. Non-bar crawl guests were lingering and talking at their tables. Nice place to relax & socialize.

I came with a party of 9 for my birthday. Ballantine has several great tables for larger groups. I appreciated that the server brought us individual checks- much easier than everyone splitting the bill. I had picked Ballantine because I wanted somewhere that has good sushi. Everyone seemed happy with their food and we had a great time despite the noise level being a little high.

We haven't been to Ballentine's in a few years, and we were not disappointed. We ordered two pizzas and they were perfect. waitress was quick, efficient and friendly. We did go for an early dinner (6:15pm reservations) and the restaurant was only half full, but I am pretty sure even when filled our waitress would have been awesome. Table by the window to people watch...very enjoyable evening and we will be back soon!
