Love this place. The food and service is amazing. They could use some jazz or Sinatra music for ambiance.
Food was delicious, but a bit overpriced.
Service was terrible, and the restaurant wasn't full or busy. Our waiter was rude to us, food was not cooked to temperature and we had to hail down food runners to get more drinks.
Plus, gratuity was automatically included for a table of 6 even though we ordered and paid as 3 separate couples.
Superb food and exceptional service. The new chef is creative and passionate.
Lovely restaurant with a good steakhouse menu.
Short: Nice ambiance, friendly restaurant staff, yummy bread/condiments/salads. All other food was heavily laden with garlic - unfortunate and disappointing. Arrived at 7 for 7:15 reservations, seated at 7:15 - perfect. Went to the small bar for a pre-dinner drink and waited 8 min. to order when only 4 couples present; had just a few sips of beer before seating. Seated at a large table for just the two of us: semi-private, nice booth with wrap around bench seat. Quickly acknowledged by serving staff. Waiter gave us about 5 min. to view menu and we asked for a little more time - then it took about 10 minutes for his return (a bit long). The sourdough rolls were great, and the blue cheese butter was awesome! The seasonal poached pear salad was excellent, as was the Cesar salad. I ordered the 6 oz filet MR and hubby ordered the 14 oz dry-aged rib-eye M. Both steaks were beautiful - perfectly cooked, nice flavors, tender, etc. Not sure if the garlic was right in the steaks, because after one bite of a side dish, my taste buds were out of commission. We ordered three sides to share (incredibly generous portions!): garlic mashed potatoes (for hubby only), lobster mac & cheese, and sauteed mushrooms. Garlic mashed were standard fare, a bit thin and over-garlicky. Mushrooms were almost wonderful (if not for the heavy garlic). The lobster m&c would have been a stand-out without the offensive garlic: huge chunks of wonderful lobster, al dente curly macaroni and a nice cheese sauce - but who puts garlic in m&c??? Yuck! Their menu should come with a warning that all sides are heavy on garlic so folks can order food without the horrible stuff! Plenty of leftovers, but only hubby could eat them the next day and even he chose to toss the potatoes and mushrooms, eating just leftover steak and m&c. I felt funky all evening and all the next day due to the garlic overdose that killed what could have been an extraordinary meal. Would return only if food can be prepared garlic-free.
Fantastic food. Wonderful ambiance. Great service.
The wife and I were in town for our anniversary and I had read prior reviews of the restaurant and was not disappointed. Would definitely return!
Our group went for dinner after seeing the TSO concert. Great atmosphere, food was to die for, and our server, Sarah was outstanding. Perfect ending to the evening.
I had ordered a large prime rib, cooked medium rare. It came in the smaller cut size. I requested it be replaced with the appropriate size cut of meat. It came back the appropriate size but was now rare and cool to the touch. Worst of all, however, the meat was tough.
The service was spotty at best. The waiter was not attentive to us, having to be hailed to our table on several occasions. He failed to bring a second glass of wine as requested, as well as forgetting to validate our parking stub as he had promised. To his credit, the waiter did give us a free dissert, but by that time it was too late to resurrect an overall disappointing dining experience.
Was late for my reservation, due to the show being late and the roads. Understandable, when they told me 15-20 minutes and sit at the bar. Sat at the bar, and ordered 1 drink and the bartenders never even said another word to us. We were the only 2 at the bar at the time. The 2 bartenders were not busy. I guess it saved me 10.50 for another Old Fashion. After about an hour an older couple came in and said they didn't have reservations and wanted to know if they could sit down for dinner, since they were staying at the hotel. They got seated, and we got up and left. I realize we were late, but this was ridiculous. I cant rate food since i have not eaten there in a while
