    The room is a little loud with wood panels and floors which made it a little hard to hear the server. But overall, this steakhouse can compete with the best in the New York Metro area in terms of food quality, service and atmosphere.

    Took my Lady to Dinner for her Birthday Very attentive service and nice ambiance. We started with Firecracker Shrimp and Calamari, it was delicious but only two shrimp might as well have been firecracker Calamari. My Date ordered Grilled Salmon which she referred to as the beat she’s every had . I had the crispy fish platter which consisted of Cod, Shrimp and Calamari. ( again only two Shrimp) but it was tasty . As a desert we ordered Creme Brûlée which was delicious and two adult coffees The ambush and the alexander both was great . Overall the Service was very good , my only issue was the Shrimp skimpiness. But we liked enough to comeback

    Food was good but a little bit expensive. They should consider not taking any tips (18 to 22%) is way too high after you get an exhorbitant check.

    Kudos great all around experience. I had the Bone In Rib Eye, cooked perfectly with a great char. My friend had the Filet which looked yummy as well. We had sauteed spinach, garlic mash and string beans with a nice bottle of Stags Leap Cabernet. Def will be back when in woodbridge.

    Went with my family to celebrate my Mom’s Birthday! Enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the restaurant but it was way too loud in the dining area. Also would’ve loved a more private and candlelit dinner.

    Overpriced for what it is. Food and ambiance was just average. However for the price point they are going for they are really reaching. Basic steaks at the low end of prime. Nothing dry-aged or rare cuts. Better options out there.

    The sangria was awesome maybe the best I ever had. The side dishes were delicious only problem my wife and I both ordered the filet medium rare they both came out closer to well done than medium. There was actually no pink left in the meat forget about red. It’s our fault for not mentioning it to the waitress but we both have this thing about complaining and sending food back. Ordered the crème brolee which was also awesome. We would definitely give it another chance seeing that was our first time there. Over cooking seemed to dry the filet out

    Food was unseasoned with very little flavor. The lobster bisque tasted old and like it was refrigerated and reheated. The lobster even tasted extra fishy and old. The lobster was over cooked and served cold. The sangria pitcher was cool though.

    Excellent experience overall. Apps (clams casino and calamari) were standard fare, but all entrees were outstanding. NY strip was seared well and proper medium rare cook, filet tip risotto had at least 6oz of steak on it and was delicious, and the short rib was excellent as well. Kids filet was a bit pricey at $26, but was a legit filet mignon cooked properly. Wine list was reasonable by the bottle or by the glass. Highly recommended for steaks as well as other dishes, and probably best anywhere in the immediate area.

    Overpriced and the service was slow despite the fact that the dining room was only 20 percent occupied. Given the high prices for entrees, white tablecloth service should be the standards

    The filet mignon was very good however the salmon was very oily and super small piece. Tuna tartare is good - would recommend and well as mussels and clams in garlic sauce.

    The food and service were excellent. My only complaint is that the music was club type music and was a little loud. I would expect more mellow type dinner music for an upscale steakhouse.

    They have the potential to be a great steakhouse but the porterhouse was bland and over cooked and the service was terrible. Some high points were the octopus and the oysters. Everything else was just ok. Too bad because we were looking for a good local steakhouse. Will continue going to Roots in Princeton.

    Steaks are fair at best but prices are comparable to the best steak houses serving aged beef (high). Putting the prices and the quality to the side it was most aggravating that they charge a $19 plate charge if you want to split a $110 36oz steak with an additional person.
