Best food I've ever had. Our waiter was unbelievable. Only drawback to this place is that it's quite expensive. So for regular folks it's more of a special occasion type place.

I've only been here once before and had a good experience, so I was super excited to take my boyfriend here for our anniversary. I was disappointed though because our server was nowhere to be found the entire time, we and rushed to make us pay when we were finished. I hate leaving bad reviews but I was looking forward to this night out all month and it was just okay.

The food was fantastic! I had the sea bass....the price was worth every delicious bite!

Only issue was that our appetizer came at the same time as the entree. Putting the appetizer (truffle mac&cheese) on our beautiful entree plate was disappointing and put a damper on the experience.

Other than the entree issue....everything was perfect! The server was otherwise very attentive and personable.

For a first experience this was ok. Server was outstanding, delivery of food was slow for the time at which we were there. The atmosphere was fantastic and relaxed. I don’t mind paying a fair price for a great meal but this was really pricey for the overall experience. Would I recommend? Yes but with the comment that it’s pricey.

The Hardware Grill is our favorite fine dining restaurants boasting an exceptional room, atmosphere and menu with a number of great traditional dishes, seafood, fish and appetizers.

As always, the food was very good and very thankful to have experienced the smoked salmon and Sea Bass first hand.

Thanks again for a grand anniversary dinner, and the complimentary chocolates to finish were very much appreciated.

After a number of experiences, we've also recognized we have a couple of favorites tables and/or areas within the restaurant so we'll know to include specific requests within future reservations.

Looking forward to returning more often in the coming year, and in addition to celebratory dinners, we're excited to stop in more regularly for appetizers and wine pairings!

The food was good, expensive but good for a special occasion. Our food however was not super hot which was a little bit of a let down but overall a good experience.

I arrived at 4:55 pm Friday afternoon. I sat in the lobby for 5 minutes until I was sat at my table. While sitting in the lobby I heard about 5 F bombs coming from inside the restaurant. When I was seated at 5:00, I waited for 5 minutes at my table until I finally got up to ask a server for a drink. She told me she would send someone over. While I waited for the waiter to come to the table I heard several more F bombs. My waiter Lewis finally showed up at 5:08 to ask what I wanted to drink. He was brash and very unfriendly. I ordered a glass of champagne and waited for my friend to show up. Minutes later he dropped off my champagne. I was the only person in the restaurant. At around 5:25 my friend and I ordered some lobster risotto. When it arrived at the table we had a bite and sent it back to the kitchen because it was crunchy. It was awful. We then ordered some duck and they put in an order for another risotto. At this time we ordered a bottle of Amarone. We let the Amarone breathe while we waited for our food. Our waiter came over and poured our wine. Minutes before our food arrived our waiter visited our table and spilt a whole glass of Amarone in my Coach purse. All he said was sorry and walked away. I was shocked. I sat there for 15 minutes blotting all the wine out of my purse. When the food came Lewis dropped it off and walked away. He made no mention that he would send over a manager or do anything to compensate me for the wine bath in my purse. I was so shocked by the trivial attitude and disregard Lewis showed me. Needless to say I never had the chance to try the food cause I was too busy dealing with my drenched purse. I am incredibly unimpressed by the unprofessional service all around from the minute I walked into this restaurant. Perhaps this restaurant was decent at one time years ago. After my deplorable experience on last Friday night I will NEVER ever come back to this HORRIBLE restaurant. Dine elsewhere! YUK!

Absolutely perfect meal for my boyfriend's birthday. Our server Shane was awesome - very personable and funny and definitely made our night more enjoyable.

My boyfriend had the butcher's cut and it was the best steak he's ever had. I went with the Black Angus burger and it was the best burger I've ever had. Props to the kitchen staff, it truly was an excellent meal. The dessert was fantastic as well (and thank you Shane for the birthday candle!)

Overall, highly recommend for any special occasion. It's a real treat dining here.

Way too expensive. They asked to put a hold of a $125 per person on the credit card. And then it turned out that they charge you all that amount by forcing you with a 3 courses menu soecial for Valentine's Day. And if you ask for anything else, you pay extra. A dinner bill for 2 people comes up to $300. This is insane.
