Outstanding service from the minute we walked in the door. Excellent mixed drinks. Interesting artwork and really good food. The only thing we didn’t love was the techno music which didn’t seem to match the restaurant or the clientele.

This was our first time at your place. I had reservations for high top seating. I was unaware that was in the bar. Table was way to small and cramped. My wife had the French crisped chicken breast, while I had the crab stuffed Rainbow trout. My wife’s meal was way over salted ( but she ate it all!) my fish was a bit boney, but overall tasted great! I had the homemade coconut shrimp for an appetizer. It was very good, but for 14$ I only received 3 shrimp. Ty for an otherwise nice meal.

It's not a Michelin or James Beard restaurant, but the prices were still pretty high. It was fun to watch everything being prepared at the table. The service was very good, although, we didn't get a high top table like I had reserved. The Caesar salad was a bit sour (probably the non-negotiable anchovies), but the chateaubriand and bananas foster were excellent. No one mentioned our anniversary, even though it was stated in the reservation, but I still think it was a nice way to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. We're glad we tried it once.

This is a go to place for me. It's close to my downtown office. The happy hour prices are superb! As is the selection. I frequently go for happy hour, but often later for a real dinner also.
Great staff. - from the bar to the dining room.
thanks for being here for us. Look forward to the patio re-opening as the weather warms up. (I know it's going to be a while, but hey)

NY Eve 3- course Prefix menu w many options. The wait staff were very attentive. The quality of food was average. No bread service was available. Cocktails and wine list good quality. The space was festive but the actual meal was just average. The chef and kitchen seemed not to pay attention to details such as: salad was overdressed w dressing, onion soup served warm not hot. The entrees had generous portions but again the details lacked such as sides just added to the plate without flare or purpose. Certainly not gourmet. But we left full and somewhat satisfied. Nothing special about this NYs meal.

We had a wonderful New Years Eve dinner. The food was simply outstanding! Service was great. The room was so dark we had to use our phone flashlights to see - that was not good. It was a super expensive dinner as well so we were happy the food was as good as it was.

Great restaurant. Great service. Everything was delicious but the sides were unspectacular, given the fixed price cost. Would like to go back on a night other than NYE, because the experience was not representative of a regular night.

Our second time there was on new year's eve 2021. When we made the reservation on OpenTable there was no mention of a fixed price menu. We were unhappily surprised to learn that a three-course meal was $109. The food was good and our waiter was very attentive. The tables were not crowded together, a real plus since we have health issues. Unfortunately, two patrons leaving who had obviously had plenty to drink, stopped for over ten minutes at a table close to ours to chat. They were standing in the isle close to us with no masks. Wait staff stood around nearby, but didn't bother to ask them to mask up. When we finally asked the maitre' d to ask them to put their masks on (NM regs), he was reluctant to do so, and, luckily, they finally left.

Absolutely delicious, with great service. We had a very nice dinner there for my birthday. Steak was delicious, crab cakes yummy too. It was quite crowded and therefore noisy, but we had a table in the corner, and felt fine even with all the people. A good place to go for any special occasion. Parking is not so easy, but the municipal lot across from the Lensic works fine if you’re willing to walk a couple of blocks.

Caesar salad was superb as noted by other reviewers. Prepared at the table, it could not have been better. My New York Strip, which I requested medium rare, was more on the medium side. I gave thought of sending it back but didn’t want to be a problem. The potatoes (string and mashed) were good. The atmosphere was just right for a cold evening and I’ll look forward to returning later to enjoy the plaza. In short, excellent but not exceptional.

We had postponed our traditional Christmas dinner for a week, the restaurant was so accommodating and moved us to the following Thursday with no problem. Our table was ready in a cozy little corner, the server was fantastic, food incredible and drinks to die for. Well worth waiting for and we will definitely be back. A must on your list!

This was an excellent choice for our last night on vacation! The service was excellent, but the food was even better! Having the caesar salad prepared at the table was great! The steaks were cooked to perfection! To top it all off, the banana's foster prepared table side as well was superb! Thank you, for top notch service, we appreciate you!!! THE GALS FROM COLORADO

We started with some apps and their table side Caesar salad. The apps were just ok……At $15, the Caesar was a plate of tasteless lettuce and 3 delicious croutons. We ordered 9 salads and everyone was sadly disappointed. Everyone that ordered steaks was happy, but the fish and beef stroganoff were very bland.
The service was excellent as well as the ambiance.
We heard such great things about this place….we were excited about bringing our out of town guest….but no one in our party of 10 was impressed.
