I realize we were on a tight time frame to make the show across the street at 8 pm. However, but only offering apps and salads for dinner choice doesnt fly. My short ribs ended up being cold and you didnt offer everyone at the table a drink order when we sat down. I felt rushed the entire time. Also, water refills would have been nice at least once. Terrible experience. Too bad its really the only restaurant to walk to for our show.

Host and wait staff were very friendly. Service was very polite and fast. Food was delicious and well presented. The portion for the smoked salmon, which was delightful, was large. Great value for downtown Milwaukee.

The ambiance is great just as it has been in the past. We did go there for New Year's Eve and were only provided their set 5 course menu and had to ask for their regular menu. The seafood cavatappi was wonderful and everything was cooked spot on. My husband had the filet and ordered it medium-rare it came medium-well but our waitress was too busy to come back and check on us until we were both almost finished with our meals. My husband said there were parts of the steak that were a little closer to medium-rare but overall, not how he ordered it. He also ordered a drink and it didn't come until he was finished with his meal. I understand that it was a little busy due to the holiday but I feel like our waitress (Becky I believe) had too many tables and was unable to give the proper attention to each one. While it was good we probably won't return for some time as we had in the past, it would not be high on my recommendation list and I feel there are other spots downtown where you could get better service for roughly the same price.

This was our second time eating here. The first visit wasn’t bad, but the food wasn’t amazing for the price.

On the second visit the food was terrible. The roasted potatoes were as hard and crunchy as any raw potatoe. The lamb was cooked properly but absent of any flavor at all. The filet was ordered medium-rare, and it arrived at the table well done after a long period of waiting. None of the food was, and some of it was absolutely terrible.

The server was fine. I don’t have any real complaints about the service other than them only offering to comp one of our two meals. My wife literally didn’t even need to taste her steak to notice how burnt it was, so she didn’t eat at all. I had a couple bites of the bland lamb and two bites of the hardest potato ever served to a guest, and then stopped eating. I was really quite surprised that no manager ever came by the table after we complained about how poorly the food was prepared.

My wife and I will absolutely not be returning. There are far too many places to eat that actually know how to cook food properly.
