From the moment we walked in, to the moment we walked out, it was amazing. Our server, Tom, was attentive, helpful and provided great recommendations. The food was delicious and the chef was very accommodating to my dietary needs. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back again. Was a great place for our team to get together after not seeing each other for seven months.

Everything was great! Food was good! Only thing that was weird is we were asked to keep our masks on at the table while sitting down. Other than that everything was great!

This restaurant is in the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines. The experience was outstanding. From the host (who turned out to be the General Manager) who accommodated us with no reservations, to the server whose recommendations and attention to us were much appreciated. The food was also outstanding. My guest's pork shop was prepared to a perfect medium rare (uncommon as most restaurants overcook the pork). My prime rib sandwich was delicious. Even if you saved room for dessert, you will not be able to finish the chocolate mousse cake, even though it is so good you will want to try. It is a full 1/4 of a cake. And surprisingly, not heavy. Looking forward to coming back.

Rosie is an outstanding server. Glad to see that she was one of the first wave of servers to return to the reopened restaurant.

Felt very comfortable with cleaning techniques and the measures taken to keep diners distanced.

The menu has been pared down but had our favorite appetizers and steaks. As usual, everything was prepared to high standards and tasted great.

We celebrated a birthday. The minute we walked in, we were greeted by every staff member we encountered.
Our waiter was awesome, the food was excellent, and amazing desserts.
Staff is knowledgeable, answered questions, great presentation on cuts and Australian lobster.

The manager thanked us for dining there and we appreciate the warm hospitality.

Wow, such a great dinner!! Starting with a top notch martini, then delicious oysters, HUGE shrimp cocktail and yummy lobster bisque. We ordered a lobster tail to split, big and fantastic. Weirdly I was in the mood for a burger which I knew would be amazing, and it was!! They use such high quality beef, it makes a big difference. Service was great, very nice waiter, super attentive on such a busy night. Can’t wait to go back!

The place was great except we felt rushed. The salad came before the appetizer was done and the steak came before the salad was done. The desert menu came a second after the meal was complete but the wine was still in our glass.

I get the idea that you want to turn a table but for a $400 meal you think they wouldn’t rush you.
