It was mine and my husband's birthday and 23 anniversary so we did a staycation and after hearing from multiple friends that loved it here, we picked it over Flemming's and Donovan's. The food was delicious but our steaks we're very cold. If they were hot or warm I would give a perfect rating.

The food is amazing. My steak was so tender I didn’t even need a knife. Only bad point is the price. It’s one of the most expensive steak houses I’ve been to. But worth it for a special occasion.

Great evening with awesome food and service. The steaks were cooked exactly as we ordered them. One our the most do items are the crab nuggets, makes it easy to eat and your not fighting with the shell.

Very disappointing and quite costly for the quality. Service very poor. Calamari not hot or crispy, Crab Louie appeared and tasted like it was canned crab, certainly not fresh. Presentation on plate very poor....one small filet on large plate with nothing else but the filet.

The service was SO SLOW - and granted we had a large group, it was ridiculous. Our server kept forgetting things he said he would do, and it took us hours to get through the meal. The food came out lukewarm and was average at best. I would not recommend it and would not return.

Food was delicious. Had a great menu with a lot of variety. Fairly pricey but worth it. I had the filet Oscar and it was perfect. We got chocolate cake and Key lime pie for the table for dessert and the Key lime pie (one of my favorite desserts) was really good and a nice big piece for the table to share. We sat outside on a beautiful night. The only downside was that the service was very slow and it wasn’t even that crowded. But overall, I’d definitely go here again.

wonderful bar area for before dinner drinks and friendly bartenders. Restaurant is great for special occasions. Steak was wonderful with a great wine list. Romantic atmosphere, dark wood but the bar is open to the outside which is nice. Server was wonderful and very friendly.

Good food. Wife enjoyed the oyster sampler. Nice outdoor patio. Very accommodating.
Only complaint was volume of music. Wanted quiet outdoor patio and was set directly under the quite loud speaker.

First of all the service was absolutely first rate excellent I have to tell you I heard that the seafood was better than the steaks. I was told they addressed that and him got a higher quality of steak. Bottom line is the seafood is still bette. steaks were just not that good thought I'd let you know

A disappointing 2nd visit to this restaurant. Our waiter all but disappeared after taking our order. My husbands steak was not cooked as he ordered, but the waiter didn't come check on us for around 15-20 mins after our entrees were dropped off, so by that point, there was no desire to even send it back. He just didn't eat it. It's a shame, for the cost, my expectation is the service would have been better. It was a total 180 from our first dining experience. Very disappointing meal.

The food was hastily prepared, not very tasty, overspiced (New Orleans BBQ shrimp) . French fries were on the cold side.

There was no pacing of serving...it was obvious the waiters were instructed to just "move the customer through fast". The entrée came prior to finishing the appetizer (soup).

Overall a very disappointing experience. My friends at the table had the same experience....they each had fish and chips - Long John silver makes a better version.

It was a brisk night so a heat lamp was needed for dining outside. We had to share a heat lamp with another table but as soon as one came available we had one brought over to us. Over all it was a good night, can't control how many people will be cold at the same time!

Little pricey...everything a la cart. Food was good...meat cooked right on! But seasoning was off a bit. For a $49 dollar Ribeye you expect perfection in cook, cut, and taste. Ribeye was boneless...not as flavorful

The food was very nice, but the service was bizarre! I had to go and find the waiter and ask him to come take our order! One dish was wrong, and then I had to go find him again to pay, which also took a while. They were nowhere near busy, either, so I have no idea what the problem was!
