    Great food and great people as always. Have only had great experiences here. We learned last night that they keep notes of certain things to which we are allergic, and re-confirm that before we order. How great is that for service! Highly recommend if you are a foodie.

    Our Father's Day dinner was amazing! Hubby and I ordered their Tomahawk rib eye special and it was even better than we imagined. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service, chef and overall experience has improved tremendously...what you would expect from a steakhouse.

    Waitress wasn’t great. Everything took at least 15 minutes including getting a refill on water. Hard to enjoy a dinner with no beverage. Went on a Thursday night not busy. Ok steak and potatoes. Mushrooms not cooked. Cold and crunchy not worth the $$.

    We ordered the Bison Ribeye and Australian Lobster tail, which was the special of the day. The Lobster was very tasteless and bland..The server was apologetic however the additional spices and sauce did not help. The Ribeye was great.. We understood that the restaurant is a 5 star steakhouse and don't mind paying for fine dining howe er when the bill was presented we were quite surprised to see that the Lobster tail was $150.00!!! In my opinion, the server should have mentioned that extraordinary price prior to ordering..

    My Husband’s birthday was wonderful! We were seated promptly, our server Norma was the epitome of politeness... she never interjected strongly, just a hint of question in her approach. She was so professional and warm at the same time. The others who approached our table were courteous and respectful of our night. The entire staff from host to kitchen were phenomenal and I would like to thank each of them we encountered (we were the guys in the hats lol). I wasn’t sure how to post another review in a different area, however, after we left the restaurant and tried our luck, there were two individuals deserving recognition on the Casino floor. Brenda and Hector... both were so sweet in direction and with attentiveness to us personally. Thank you for a great evening!

    First off, I had to wait about a half hour after my reservation time. The food was very slow to come. The time Between courses was very very slow. By the time our main course arrived everybody at my table was already full from bread. My filet mignon was very dry and I had lobster mac & cheese and I found only one about one or two pieces of lobster in it. My other guests also had the porterhouse and was very dry. Nice atmosphere just was not feeling this place.

    This is a beautiful restaurant and the service is great. However; as pricey as it is and that it is a steak restaurant you’d expect your steak to be cooked correctly the first time (med rare was expected, we got med well). We had to wait for another steak to be cooked like we asked and it came at the end of our meal. That was disappointing. The mushrooms, king crab and asparagus were delicious. However, do not get the baked potato. It was dry, over done the cheese and bacon bits looked like it was sitting under a heat lamp for hours. We felt bad complaining again so we just left it.

    We always have Joseph who is fabulous. This time he was off for the night and our server was Taylor. Awful! I’m surprised she even has a job at this restaurant. I think Red Robin is probably more her speed. She greeted us and was kind of rude, but brought the bottle of wine out quickly. Service pretty much ended there. If all the job entails is taking an order, then she’d be fine I guess. Because that’s all she did. We were left with dirty appetizer plates until we signaled for someone to remove them. Then she plunks down some sorbet between meals with our steak knives, not even bothering to place anything correctly. When we got our food my boyfriend’s steak was cold and mine, while it seemed to be cooked right it wasn’t tender like it sissy’s is. And my baked potato was crusted and over baked with a hard layer of cheese. The manager had to come and take everything away since it was almost 10pm and I was not feeling like waiting another hour for the issue to be fixed. He’s very sweet and professional and always treats us great, but my advice when you make reservations is to specify anyone but Taylor!
