Food was amazing! Service was exceptional. Unfortunately the meat was not cooked to ask. We asked for Medium done and had to send back TWICE. And still NEVER got it right.

Almost everything was disappointing. Noise level was too noisy, aided by a noisy birthday group of 20 or more. Service suffered because of the birthday group. Salads came with the meal, rather than as a starter (and salads are listed as starters). Wine list was mediocre. Not worth the cost.

Did not even have their signature dishes! No one apologized to us. Ordered Risotto and it was not fully cooked. The price point does not match food quality or service. This place charges up scale prices, but does not deliver the value. Our server kept referring to cooks as chefs. They neither acted or cooked like chefs. We left and made reservations to another restaurant across the street! As an aside, this restaurant also ran out of the house wine.

It was rather empty when we arrived, but we were okay with it. Menu was limited as far as appetizers go, especially for time.

Services was great. Food was good.

I had very high hopes for this restaurant when my parent's suggested it for my boyfriend's birthday. We were greeted immediately and were seated promptly. We received water as soon as we sat down so I was glad that the service would probably be great at this restaurant, boy was I wrong. It took them over 20 minutes to take our order down and then even longer for them to just bring out the risotto, the only appetizer we ordered. Not only did my order and my order come out 10 minutes before my parents got theirs, but the steak I ordered was clearly medium well and not medium as requested. When I showed this to the waitress, she immediately apologized and offered to bring me another one. She asked me if i wanted her to take the overdone meat and I told her no, because my mother prefers her meat cooked that way anso I would just give it to her. Thank goodness I kept it because not only did it take another 15 minutes to receive the new steaks, it was given to me RARE and was ALL FAT. I have a feeling the cooks were upset with me for complaining that they don't know how to properly cook a medium steak and so they retaliated by giving me the fattiest piece of meat I've ever had. I was so upset but this rude and disgusting gesture that I didn't even bother trying it. Not only will I never go back to this place because of the rudeness from the chefs that I received, they clearly don't know how to cook a steak to specifications and then take it out on the customer when they get called out. Not to mention how long it took for us to get our food, and we didn't even get it at the same time. I also ordered a mac n cheese that never came. When I reminded the waitress of this she asked me if I wanted to still wait for it even though we were done with our meal. Are you kidding me? No we're done. You should have brought with the other stuff and now you're acting like like I'm rude if I don't wait for it. NEVER AGAIN. Avoid this place and go to Bourbon Steak if you want a decent meal

Excellent preparation of steak. Flavorful and tender. Crispy string fries. Best part of the lamb chop entree was the artistic presentation and the taste of the vegetables. Flourless chocolate dessert was decadent. Service was good. Attentive refills of our tea and coffee. We made reservations for 6:45 pm on a Saturday for a birthday celebration. A nice touch was to see a Happy Birthday board on the table reserved for us.

Food was good, the service, unfortunately, was only adequate ; my main course (short rib) arrived yet my friend's steak didn't arrived until almost 15 minutes later. By then my food was getting cold and the restaurant wasn't that busy. The waitress apologized throughout but they should've just hold the food and served us both at the same time.

Went here for the first time on Valentine’s Day - my husband and I were given a fixed menu on the table and a wine list. We were looking forward to a Filet but it wasn’t on the fixed menu so we chose other options. As we were dining, we noticed other people were being given the standard menu upon request. I was disappointed to say the least. We ended up spending over $150 on dinner and we didn’t even get what we went there for and we were not given the option. Food was ok not great. Wouldn’t go back again.

Service was extremely slow on a night with 1/2 full restaurant. There seemed to be a problem in the kitchen as orders to all tables came out slow. When I did receive my order, my starter arrived with my room temp ribeye. After asking twice, my fries came 5” later. Very disappointing.@

I made the reservation for 6:30 but was contacted to change it to 7, because they had another large party (we were a party of 8). Because we had young children, I didn’t want to push it too late so we agreed on 6:45. We were seated immediately. We ordered and after an hour, we were brought an appetizer of potatoes compliments of the chef. It was another half hour before we finally got our food. Meanwhile, tables of people who came in after us had been served. The starter salad was brought out at the same time as the main meal (on a dish that did not come with a salad, as some do where it is part of the plate). Two of the meat hooks that were ordered were cold. They brought out new meats for us. The steaks we ordered and replacement meat hooks were cooked perfectly and delicious. The truffle fries were delectable. The service was very friendly and attempted to correct for the problems with the very long wait for food, which was appreciated. Overall, it’s a nice atmosphere (except when they would leave the door open and it was very cold) with a lovely presentation of the food. If their service can be sped up to get food out in a timely manner, it would be a great experience.

Family lunch on a quiet Friday afternoon. Grew up in the area but call Seattle home now. Many of the old haunts are gone, so tried Meat District Co. based on the online menu. Happy to say that the meals lived up to our hopes and expectations. Service was friendly and reasonably fast (but not hurried).

The garlic bread looked terrible and wasn't great tasting - the presentation was messy. My husband ordered a beer listed on the menu but they didn't have it. We also ordered the bone marrow but the server came back and told us they didn't have it either. Overall, the quality of the food did not justify the high prices.

I don't think we will be going back.

The restaurant had a good ambience, and the food was delicious. However, unfortunately they had a horrible waitress.. To keep things short she basically rushed us to close out, nearly took my tray off of my table with a full side salad untouched. After that I was tempted to leave a $2 tip but I still had the will to leave a $8 tip which brought the bill to $64.××. When the transaction went through it posted for $74.××. Whatever the case might be, things like that are unacceptable in a business.

Really not all that! The restaurant was nicely designed, but the menus are atrocious... large and cumbersome, and hard to read (badly designed). The table was sticky. The waitress was nice, but the food was so-so. For a $40 steak, cloth napkins should be standard. Burgers were over-cooked.

Not your usual boring steakhouse, more like a high end burger joint. Very creative menu, although somewhat limited in meat choices. Salad with steak, great. Burger with grilled chicken, great but perhaps a bit on the over top sized (I didn't finish it, although quite good. Fries also excellent, stayed hot until end of meal thanks to the copper pipe (without a bottom) container. Design goes out of its way to be industrial... or a meat shop that happens to have a restaurant in it. Not like a traditional steak house at all, much more expensive than a chain restaurant when you are looking for a burger. Meant for a younger crowd, I'd say, but I'm in my late 50s and still enjoyed the experience.

Needed a quick place for dinner in Pasadena. Found this place on a Yelp search. Good concept with grass-fed, hormone-free meats but the food is clearly being marketed to the 'bigger is better' and 'more meat is better' crowd. The burgers come out so tall that there's no way they can stay together without the large knife they stick into them. Once you cut or bite into it the whole thing falls apart. We didn't order one of the meat platters or a hanging tower of meat but nobody should be eating that much meat. I'm not a vegetarian by any means but I'm guessing the servers throw out a lot of meat at the end of each meal. Such a waste. Also the place has zero ambiance and felt a little dirty. I'm 50 and likely not the target audience. Sorry. Won't be back.
