Everyone's dinner was delicious except for mine. I was so looking forward to the prime rib pizza, however, it was so spicy hot, I could only choke down one piece. You really do need to list the hot red pepper as one of the ingredients for those of us who cannot eat spicy food.

WE made reservations and when we arrived were told it would be about 15 mins. This was 8pm and the place looked slow. After 15 mins we were asked if we would sit in the bar area. We agreed. The service was super slow and incompetent. The waiters did not work together, left dishes on the table which I had to stack up to get room for new dishes even though about 10 waiter walked by our table.. Just super poor!!
Ordered the shrimp cocktail, it was good as usual, hot cocktail sauce as they are famous for. Then the waiter finally came back for main order. Asked if they had king crab legs and instead of politely saying sorry we don't; the waiter gets smart mouth and says "We like to concentrate on red meat". We order waited about 30 minutes for the salad and main dishes, steak, lobster, potato pancakes, Brussel spouts etc. steak was under cooked from med well to red, brussels sprouts were so salty no one could eat. The potato's, lobster were all cold. Do not eat here try one of the newer downtown spots. Humm the only thing good was the shrimp, maybe they need to concentrate on their RED MEAT....

Extraordinary server. Attentive but not hovering. Excellent timing serving food and drinks. The NY strip was generous and prepared as requested. Some people order “stuff” on top of their steak. But a good piece of beef — like mine — needs only a little salt. The on duty manager runs a tight ship and it showed top to bottom.

This place seems tired. Needs a refresh. Not nearly as good as the north side location. Steak was ok but mashed potatoes cold. Didn’t send back since it was a biz dinner. Service was decent. Restaurant is over priced for the product.

Our server was fantastic and really made the meal. The only downside is we were a small bday party and we were sat next to a large party that really overtook the upstairs by their noise and candor. Would have liked something a little less vibrant for our own intimate setting but that was the only downfall of the evening! Food and drinks were superb and service was top notch! Next time we will request to sit in the lower dining not the upstairs.

Having to wear an orthodic boot due to injury, unfortunately our only options for a table were upstairs or at the high tables near the bar. Neither was ideal, but we chose the high table downstairs to avoid the long stairway. Our waitress noticed my situation and went above and beyond to make me comfortable. Food and service were great as usual, but this extra effort made a huge difference for my evening.

Food was amazing, only issue was that we expected a higher class of restaurant goers. We went on a Sunday and happened to be there right after a colts game, so it was packed with people under dressed and a bit louder than would expect at a fine dinning restaurant. Besides that, our food was amazing, great atmosphere, fast service,Rack of Lamb was perfectly cooked, NY strip was killer, will be going back

First time eating here. Seated upstairs which was nice & a good view of the restaurant. Our waiter was great & very knowledgeable & gave us a good recommendation on wine. Food was excellent, all three courses. Quite expensive but it was a birthday celebration, would definitely eat here again if the opportunity arises

The food was delicious (one of the best filets I have tasted) and service was very professional, but I felt that the pace was rushed...both by the waitstaff and the kitchen. I just wanted to relax and talk with friends, but each course kept arriving within minutes. I'm sure others would complain about the reverse, but for me, the pace on a Friday night needed to dial it back a notch.
