Great experience! The restaurant was not overly crowded and I felt safe there with rise of Covid-19 happening. We ordered a few appetizers: Mussels, Crab dip and Brussel Sprouts. All were amazing and the crab dip was our favorite. I ordered the short rib for dinner which was 10/10. Service was good as well but the food is the most memorable part. I would most definitely go back.
Colleen was absolutely amazing and super helpful with menu suggestions. She even had some tips for where to go after dinner that we might enjoy.
Clayton is the best server. So friendly, funny and oersonable
Our waiter seemed very distracted and left us waiting for drinks and orders. It seemed to take a long time in between drinks and desert. On a good note the Sea Bass was amazing!
Colleen was the absolute sweetest server! She found out it was our girlfriends birthday and treated us to a round of champagne!
The food was amazing! We will definitely return!
Mother and daughter (12 yrs old) date.
Loved the ambience. I have not been downtown that much and it was nice to go out downtown. The food was really good and we had a great night. I have not gone out recently but the alcohol seemed a little over priced. I would go back for a date night for sure. Based the total bill it will be for special occasions.
Excellent and professional service. Great food and lovely ambiance
Colleen is the best host and waiter I have known. I dine out 3 to 4 nights per week and she’s absolutely fantastic.
Great sevice, and the cheese board was delicious.
Absolutely wonderful evening. Greeted with celebratory champagne for my wife’s accomplishment. Food was spot on as we remembered. Service was perfect
Great cocktails and food. We wanted to try everything on the menu! What we ordered was delicious.
Not sure if the Ceasar Salad was a new menu item or what but it was not good. It was sauced right, but it had chunks of preserved lemon in it. I suppose they are eatable but not something that I would recommend. There were white anchovies but the filets were mixed in for an unpleasant surprise. There was no bite from the lemon and no tang from the anchovies.
The Ribeye was perfectly cooked to medium rare plus but there was little to no seasoning on it, so pretty bland (I added a ton of salt and pepper to it at the table). It was served with a ill-conceived steak sauce that I sampled and set aside.
The menu did not have much to it, very light on choices.
The service was good and everyone was very nice. However, I'm probably not going back. Perhaps I caught them on a off night (Thursday) but I see no reason to come back.
The food was over priced and okay to bad. My son got a burger (safe bet) but it was gross and burnt. I got a salad, it was okay. Later that night we had to go out to a different restaurant to eat because our dinner was not satisfying at all.
With all that is going on in the country the place was pretty much empty. Food was not as good as it has been in the past, however I would still recommend based on previous experience.
Food good. Service a little frenetic.
We had brunch and the food was good but we ordered pretty standard items. Other items might have been more wow-worthy. We definitely did not care for the bloody Mary’s. They add curry and neither of us are curry fans. I think many people order a drink like bloody Mary’s because they like the taste of a standard Bloody Mary. Adding horseradish, pickles, olives, veggies in general or even a lot of heat is all well within range but the curry was unpleasantly outside the bounds. If you love curry, order these.
Our waitress was wonderful and the service and ambiance were outstanding.
What a great experience! The service staff was friendly, the atmosphere was trendy yet relaxed, perfect for celebrating a special occasion. The food was FANTASTIC and came out very quickly. We will visit again next time we're in town!
Good service and cool atmosphere, but food was extremely underwhelming (and overpriced for the quality).
We really liked the location and ambiance of this place. Good for a group of people planning on going to the comedy club after.
The shishito peppers and salmon were great. Unfortunately, my steak was completely overcooked while my brother-in-laws bone in pork chop came out under cooked.
Was disappointed that they didn't have a gluten free menu or even items marked this day and age.
A wonderful easy to start the evening of dinner and symphony. The reservation was ready on time greeted by pleasant hostesses the menu was varied with excellent choices. The food was delicious and the service superb. Ain’t beat this restaurant for class and quality.
Eaten here several times and never disappointed. Well, except for the fact that they don’t have the deviled eggs anymore.
We sat on the patio and it was delightful! Our server, Colleen, was knowledgeable on the menu and gave us excellent recommendations. And those cocktails were amazing! Try the “art of malting” and you will not be disappointed! We will be back!
Food was fantastic!!! Really nice ambiance, will be returning for sure!!
Excellent meal. Super flavorful combinations.
I think the food is very tasty and the only thing I would add is at our steak came and it wasn’t as hot as it should’ve been which kind of is a bummer.I also think for the price that you charge for your cocktails I should be a tad larger they seemed on a very small side for $16 especially for a Moscow Mule
The drinks and cocktails were amazing. Well made and thoughtful pairings with the chosen liquor! I loved my sirloin steak and broccolini side. The cheese platter was different in a good way, loved the pickled veggies and the burrata was fantastic. We also had the chicken dumplings, and the gals at the table thought they were great... so great they were gone before I could try them. Our waiter was fantastic and the decor and ambiance was lovely.
Food was good, however sitting with my child in the bar area was noisy.
Interesting menu with good range of choices. Attentive service.
Really good food and a cool restaurant. Service needs work, but it's a challenge in the industry in many cities. Would definitely go again.
Both hostesses were totally rude. To multiple people....I got to see because we could not be seated "until [our] reservation time exactly" whichcame and went and we waited an additional 15 min past that time. Normally I would be like NBD, they're busy...etc. Turns out nope. At least 2/3rds of the tables were empty. Just ubsurd.
The food was delicious! Just really really really good. But part of the premium of a $50 steak is the service and it just wasn't there. Example: split a salad. They brought the huge plate of salad and set it in the middle with no plates to split it....uh...? Shame. No warmth from anyone on staff except the bartenders....hah.
My wife and arrived 6 minutes late for our reservation, which I immediately communicated to the front desk via text message. I apologized to the hostess while checking in but she didn’t respond and seemed annoyed. She sat us at the 2-top closest to the kitchen and I asked her if it was possible to sit at any of the other THREE 2-tops next to us that were open and she simply said no. Based off of her short response to a seemingly feasible request, I assumed the restaurant was completely booked and I actually thought that we were lucky to even have a table. Long story short, we sat right next to a very loud kitchen and not ONE of the other THREE 2-tops were occupied the entire hour that we were there.
Food was excellent but there’s a lot of other eating options in the area and unfortunately all it takes is one very rude and unhappy hostess to drive away business.
Phenomenal service, great ambience.
Our waitress was not very helpful on describing the menu items or wine selections. The room is very noisy. The mixed green salad was huge. We could have split the salad instead of wasting it. The salmon was cooked to perfection. Very pricey for what you get.
Hair in my wife’s food coupled with a surly hostess made for a not so enjoyable meal.
One visit will be enough.
Excellent all around. Great chef and crew - tomahawk was great. Pastry chef - amazing, dirty Chai pot de creme was amazing. Great cocktail (machinist), and lovely service
Loved the atmosphere. Very relaxing. It's on the second floor and overlooks cityscape. Way too expensive but we had a nice time. Did everything. Cocktails, steak and desert.
I loved the whole experience!
Bryan was terrific. Good guidance through the menu. Steaks, mushrooms and pecan pie were outstanding. The house special Old Fashioned was great. A big thanks for allowing us to choose our table. Always a wonderful experience. One of our favorite restaurants in the Phoenix area.
