Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff welcomed us cheerfully when we arrived and paid special attention to us the entire evening. Our birthday boy said it was his best birthday dinner ever.

LB was fantastic! We had the oysters, bone marrow, filet mignon and New York strip. Everything was delicious. And I absolutely loved the Brussels sprouts. Creme brûlée was lovely too!

The food here is very good, the price is extraordinary.

The only thing keeping this establishment from 5 stars all around is that
We saw 3 different sides of service here:

Poor - The receptionist who ignored us for quite a while both times we arrived at the podium, and would not seat us 15 minutes early with a pretty empty restaurant.

Average - Our server who provided what felt like standard service at a typical sit down restaurant, but seemed a little stretched with how many people he was assigned.

Exceptional - The manager who went out of his way to explain the food, see how we were doing at multiple intervals, and provided us bread when we left as a gift simply because we had mentioned that it was good earlier in the evening. This is the true level of service we expect from a $$$$ establishment

First time at LB STEAK and everything there was amazing. I highly recommend this place for dates or a girls night out. Even the hospitality was above and beyond from our waiter recommending a delicious dessert to the manager checking in on us and given us friendly conversations.

Really disappointed, they need a new chef. Everything was bland and under seasoned. Came and paid for a legit steakhouse experience and expectations were not met. We got the bone-in ribeye for 2, shame such a nice piece of meat was so poorly prepared.

Our server Ozzie made the night special with the excellent service despite a couple misses initially—dirty martini wasn’t dirty and medium well steak was overdone. He remedied both immediately. The food was outstanding as always. Recommend the blue cheese butter for the steak with a side of mushrooms. The wedge salad is excellent. They now have indoor dining, outdoor dining and a few tables in between in a sheltered patio which is where we were seated which was nice for a summer but windy evening.

Need the tent back to keep the wind out. A lot of car noise, the road should be closed to traffic, parking is no problem, there is no need for car traffic

Was seated outside, waiter took awhile to circle back for orders / drinks. Understandable it was busy, however paying $200+ For a dinner with an over cooked steak and mediocre service left a bad taste in my mouth


I don’t think we will be going to LB for awhile

Our server was amazing for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. The food was great and service was great. The only thing that was a problem was the hostess. She was very unenthusiastic and a bit rude. But other than that. really great.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday. We enjoyed both of our meals. She loved the wine and Chris, our server was excellent.

The only negative was;
The wind from outside coming through the open door made it cold
The seating area I was on (bench) was loose and moved around while I was seated.
Overall a great dinner.

Good overall was delicious. We had the wagyu steak that melted in your mouth and tasted amazing . At first our server was rushing us because they said the kitchen was closing . When we tried ordering our wagyu stake it was $25 an ounce. The waiter asked how many ounces we wanted and when we told him 8oz he asked us if we were sure because the oz was $25. We said yes 8 oz and he questioned us again as if we were unable to afford it or question us . That just took away from the entire experience. I did not appreciate having to be questioned .

The waitress was very passive and took longer than normal to get our foods. Need to ask for plates, utensils, breads, etc. instead of offering these essential items by the server. Some items are removed from their menu and no longer offer such as the pork belly RACLETTE BURGER. The service is not up to par compared with my past experience.

First two wine choices were not available. Manager then apologized for not having aspirin - we didn’t ask for aspirin. 8 oz Idaho filet for $85 was 4-5 ozs.

Signs of a struggling restaurant.

Peter, the manager, was very welcoming and friendly. He made us feel very relaxed by introducing himself and was very informative about the food.

Scott, our server, was attentive and friendly and did not rush us throughout our dining experience.

Food, as always, was amazing.

6 oz filet for lunch was overcooked. Ordered med-rare, arrived medium+. It still tasted good and I did not send it back. Otherwise, the meal was excellent and our waiter was great.
