A good meal, a little over priced for what we got but all in all worth it. Only issue was the service, I get Covid mandates but they could have put a little more into it. Food cool when it arrived but it was a cooler evening.

HI Hammy, I am so sorry that your experience was not five star here . That host was me by the way and I can assure you my shoes were not dirty and never will be. However, if you have some constructive criticism for us please reach out to me personally and would love to hear. Also, you may want to rethink how you say you get covid especially when it relates to service staff. Todd Thurman, GM

Delicious food...they certainly NEVER disappoint. HAMACHI CRUDO is out of this world. And hard to leave without eating at least one of their chocolate chip cookies, even in this no sugar/no flour age. Wonderful atmosphere, PERFECT for COVID era: large patio area, heaters, plenty of space to comfortably space out tables. Staff very attentive and kind. Free valet (but make sure you put into your GPS 2000 Avenue of the Stars, due to street work).

we asked to order an appetizer with our drinks and our waiter discouraged us saying we should order all at once? We added potatoes to our order a few minutes after we put in our dinner order The wygu was cold wben served as were the mushrooms. Service was ok and meal should not have been served cold for the cost. Of the two waiters the heavier set one was rude as he was to us the last time we were there. Will not be back.

Please feel free to reach out to me personally and would love to discuss. I would hate for you to to come back. Todd Thurman, GM

They have opened with dining on the patio. Although the menu is limited due to smaller staff in the kitchen and no pastry chef, the food is still the same excellent quality as it was pre-COVID. They have rehired staff in order of seniority so the serice is still uniformly excellent.
