Great service as always, and the food blows my mind every time. The best restaurant around. Get the sautéed crab claws if they’re on special. My favorite place for a special occasion.

The total experience was exquisite. The seating was immediate and professional. The most memorable part of the entire experience was the attentiveness of the host. The fact that the manger visited our table to inquire about our experience was a definite pluse.

Everything in place for a very enjoyable dining experience but things were just a tad out of sync. Centerpiece was the steak which was not quite prepared to what I was expecting.

Without a doubt the BEST meal my wife and I have had since moving to the Jackson Metro 4 yrs ago. Steaks done to a perfection and extremely decadent dessert and I won't hesitate to recommend it.

We had a great time. The tabes were well spaced and are stainless steel so they are easily cleaned.

Service was great and the food was fantastic. I had the ribeye rare. My wife had the fillet med rare. Both were perfectly cooked and seasoned.

One of, if not the very best, steaks in the Jackson area. The bone in filet is life changing but don't forget to try the fries with gorgonzola dipping sauce. So good!
