Excellent service and wine list. The steak and lamb dishes were delicious. Seasoning was spot on and portions were generous. They use local producers which they list on the menu. This restaurant is a hidden gem.

Highly recommend this restaurant. John was a great bartender! The other server was also great, calling me by name when sitting me as well as helping clear my plate even though I wasn’t in her section. Enjoyed the Brussel sprouts and flatbread. We definitely return on future business trips.

I took a date to 801 Chophouse and we really enjoyed it. A little spendy but well worth it. The service was great and the food was phenomenal. Definitely try the lobster mac and cheese, just a fantastic dish loaded with lobster. My date and I both agreed, best steak we'd ever had.

Lovely evening. Candice was amazing as our waitress. Got a bit loud when more tables filled. Food was great! Had the roasted chicken. The roasted potatoes we a bit disappointing as they were a bit on the lukewarm side even after asking for hot ones. None the less it was great. Dessert was yummy.

Sat outside which was nice. Food was suprisingly very high quality at a reasonable price. I'd recommend the moscow mule flight!
