    I’ve tried lots of upscale steakhouses and this one is one of the best. The service is outstanding and the actual steak might be the best I’ve ever had. They also had one of the best wine lists that’s I’ve seen with many selections from small but top notch wineries that most people haven’t heard of.

    Horrible experience, usually love it here but was seated in a back room with horrid lighting and a fake fireplace on a monitor. Bad enough to be seated there, worse when halfway through our meal the staff started turning down the tables for the night which was honestly rude. For what you pay price wise, the ambience should match. Also my husband’s steak was severely overcooked and they told him it would be a while if he wanted another one…

    The tuna appetizer and the orange cake dessert were both phenomenal, if it weren't for them I might have given food a 1 star. I got the 24oz porterhouse that was 18oz at best with very little meat on the bone, very disappointing. My wife got the 12oz filet that also seemed small. We got the lobster mac n cheese that could have spent more time in the oven. Normally I wouldn't care about these small details but it's a steakhouse and the items are priced very high compared to other restaurants. Also, their drink prices are also on the higher end which is why I rated it low in value.

    My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine’s day. Definitely book ahead because we were on a wait list, essentially, to see when someone cancelled if we could get on OpenTable fast enough and get it. Food was excellent and the service was great. We are definitely coming back.

    Had been to the restaurant in some years I thought I was going to have a wonderful time was placed in a very loud room. Very cramped sat in the booth tables on my chest I’m 6 foot three 275 pounds and it wasn’t comfortable the booth was extremely dirty mirrors were dirty half an of dust all over the top of the booth not a clean place as far as the food state came out first time completely rare I asked for over medium second time came out outside came out burnt potatoes were runny and cold. I asked for a napkin twice never got it. I asked for a double bourbon with Coke the gal man told me will bring it in a tall glass. You can put the coke as you would like to to me that screams, we don’t know how to make a proper whiskey drink. So to be honest, my wife and I did not enjoy ourselves and we were celebrating Valentine’s Day. As I say, plan for the worse and hope for the best in this case, I can’t say that ain’t 100% true

    Overall, the experience was good, but one thing that kind of set the mood was when the valet did not open the passengers door of my wife. The server was great very knowledgeable very cordial very happy with the food other than my wife salad had wilted lettuce underneath all the dressing. The bourbon old-fashioned was great

    Amazing as always. It was my wife’s birthday and they accommodated our request to be in the piano room and gave her a slice of their legendary orange cake. When they found out my son’s birthday was the next day they gave him a slice to take home! How cool is that!? Our favorite restaurant in Orlando (and maybe anywhere)!

    The experience was awful. We started out next to a loud table that was being fawned over as we were left waiting for drinks. I understand that people are understaffed but this was uncalled for, the wait was too long. We started with the mahi tuna as an appetizer and It was excellent a wedge salad followed also excellent. The main course my guest ordered a fillet medium rare, which came to the table way undercooked we did try it and the meat tasted off. We both had rare cuts before and would have tolerated it but again the meat add a funny taste. I had the Wellington, this was doughy and dry. We took a while for the waiter to come to the back of the table to ask us about our meal and we voiced our dislike. The meals were sent back and we chose not to have the orders replaced. They did remove the items from the check which was admirable but this was an overall disappointment because this was a birthday dinner. I don't think I'll be back.
