The steak and potatoes was amazing! The butter was fascinating. The Alfredo cant say the same. It was missing something maybe garlic or salt, a piece of bread or salad. I couldn't put my finger on it. Also some sort of bread or maybe chocolate on the table with you water would've been nice. The drinks are bomb! Service was great and we thought super affordable. Would go back again but wouldn't do the pasta.

We had a rsvp but waited 39 min to set down. Seems like they had one server and it was too long to get our food .

The menu is very limited now (most likely due to COVID). I had intentions of getting brunch and was disappointed that they now only have two options for breakfast. My waiter was great and attentive and there were few people in the restaurant. The food that I did order was pretty good.

We loved it there, they took great precautions with the pandemic, all the tables were 6 feet apart and disinfected. We made reservations and didn’t have to wait to be seated. The service was great as well as the food!

They didn’t wipe the table down before we got there. I know that because there was a long black nasty hair on the table and it certainly wasn’t mine. They didn’t take anyone’s temperatures before entering and inside looked just as packed as it did before COVID. Not one COVID precaution was taken at all. Very disappointed because I have a lot of memories here.

I’ve been wanting to come here for over 4 years now because I’m a chocolate fanatic and honestly, if it wasn’t for the 40 min wait, I would have given it five stars because the food, the drinks, the atmosphere, and the service was all marvelous. The only thing was, that I had a reservation for 8:30 and wasn’t seated until 9:13 and in regards to that, there should be more organization because the reason for making a reservation is to not wait 40 mins but other than that, it was great!! Thank you for the experience!!

All was pretty good. The one problem I had was we booked a reservation for 9pm and still has to wait 30 mins after we got there. So that was a little frustrating but other then that the chocolate and food was great.

Excited to see the doors open. I missed Max Brenner. What I really miss is the waffle steak sandwich.. The cocktails were a delight I had not previously engaged in.

We had reservation for 9:30 but we didn’t get a table till after 10pm. We got out appetizers about 1030. We only had a chance to get a drink and eat some appetizers before we were rushed out. We were told that they close at 11pm and we couldn’t order our entree. I was looking forward to our entree. Our waiter apologized many times but we didn’t get to eat. We wish we had a chance to eat thats all.

We love this place! Food is great and although service is normally mediocre, we found service this time to be amazing. The tall gentleman (didn’t catch his name) Maitre d at the podium was super nice and accommodating in getting us a wonderful table after we asked for a better one or two :)
