Service was extremely slow and staff seemed bothered that they had to be there and working. The food was great. Unfortunately, I wouldn't go back, because my water was never filled unless I asked, waitress hardly checked on us and she only had two other tables. Other patrons were constantly yelling to get the waiters attention for service as well. Ambiance was boring and drab.

This place never disappoints. If you are there for a romantic meal and want a quieter, more romantic experience, you'll probably want to let the staff know as some seating can be noisy and conversations can be heard across the room. The food is always good and is interesting. Comparable to other restaurants with food of this quality, they are more on the pricey side but again, we've never been disappointed. The service is always friendly and attentive.

They didn't have the braised ribs which is the reason for the visit. The steak was a little tough and had some kind of sauce ob it. The ambience was and service was excellent

Overall the food was good, not great and was overpriced which I do expect from this type of restaurant. The issue I had when spending $150 on a meal is that when I asked to substitute my potatoes for fries I was informed I couldn't do this and I would have to by the fries separately. There also seemed to be a hesitance from the waitress and staff to ensure you were taken care of. Level of service was on par with what I would get at a chain restaurant like Applebees or Fridays.

Didn't have many breakfast options, food was cold and the man who cuts the salmon barley gave us any multiple customers complained. We also requested to sit next to our family who had reservations they said no even though there were plenty of open seats that would have accommodated our simple request won't be back.

Lobster tail was prepared & cooked to perfection. Bone in chop little over done (dry).

Our server Cindy was wonderful, she asked if we were celebrating anything & we happen to be Celebrating our 35th Anniversary!

Wine list was wonderful especially how many were available by the glass.

We arrived on time for our reservation. We received our salads in about 5 minutes, then waited more than an hour for our entrées, which were very mediocre. Shrimp was undercooked. Some kind of smoky sauce was poured over the prime rib, giving it an off taste.
We had tickets to a show at 9:00 pm, so we arrived at 7:15. We received our entrées at 8:35. The restaurant manager was very apologetic and comped our dinner. The wait staff was fine. The problem was in the kitchen.

We had surf and turf, and also the 'Hot Rocks' filet mignon. The surf and turf was pretty good although the lobster tail was unevenly cooked with it being almost raw in spots but the filet was good. The 'Hot Rocks' filet mignon which you cook yourself on a hot stone at the table was very good with nice sides included. The surf and turf was ala carte. We had the creamed spinach, mushrooms and baked potato sides with it---all pretty good. The restaurants ambiance is special---some people came dressed up, but some not so much. Service, while polite and respectful, was inadequate. The waiter came 3 times during the first 5 minutes to take our order not giving us nearly enough time to review the menu and wine book---we felt rushed even though the restaurant was not that busy. After our order was taken we couldn't find the waiter when he was needed. It took a long time to get our drink order. The waiter neglected to take our sauce order (a sauce came with the Hot Rock filet and you get to pick one from five or six such as béarnaise). When we eventually got our sauce order placed he never brought it and we had to remind him again when he could be found. He never considered asking for a dessert order and was ready to bring the bill but we called him back to ask for the dessert selections. He brought the book listing the desserts but despite being advised that we would soon have to get to a show he took fully 15 minutes to come back to take the dessert order. Needless to say at that point we had no time for dessert. He apologized and said it was busy tonight.---Sorry, we really didn't see that. In summary, we would definitely go back, but hope for another waiter.

We made reservations and were seated promptly. It was busy but it seemed like it took a long time for service. 20 minutes in between seeing our waiter from drinks to app, then about 30 minutes in between app and food. Had to wait another 25 minutes for our bill after eating. Our food was delicious but just seemed to take a long time.
