Food and atmosphere are unique! Great views of the Springfield skyline! However, would have to rate lower because of service .... a second round of drinks were brought out (which we were charged for) that weren't ordered and when ordering dessert they would not swap out a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the (alcoholic) Manhattan that came with the chocolate cake even though it was for my 14yo son. (Turns out we were charged separately for the Manhattan that came with the cake anyway which could have easily been done without. You would think that they would care more about customer retention than leaving that $4+ charge on our $300+ dinner bill.

A bit on the pricey side, really paying for the ambiance, was a special occasion but wouldn’t consider for many more visits for a meal.

Our waiter was very patient as we celebrated our daughter’s accomplishments. He was also very knowledgeable about the food choices, how everything was prepared and what side orders would compliment our meal. Water glasses were always filled. The food was excellent! By far, this was the best meal we’ve had! We will make this our go to favorite! Excellence all around!!

This was our first time here and they did not disappoint. We were seated right away even though we were a little early. The staff was very attentive to our wants and needs. Wonderful bread basket and the steaks were delicious. We tried the Nicks potatoes to share, tasty but would probably try something else next time.

Absolutely the best filets on the planet. The crust and sauce options are so fun to explore. Nicks potatoes are a must! Our server Rick was so attentive. Our only mishap was an unevenly adjoined table that caused a wine spill. Definitely going back for our next special occasion. Thank you for a great evening.

The atmosphere and Food were primo, however, the noise level made it hard to hear and the price was a bit much for a two-person dinner but the quality of the food left a very good taste in the mouth.

On Valentine's evening they have a special menu with an appetizer to share, entree choice from 3 and desert with champagne. The meal and the service was wonderful and the atmosphere very nice for special occasions. My only complaint and reason for not giving a 5 star rating is there was not a desert choice, only one option. That option contained nuts and I have an allergy to nuts.

I had requested a window seat for myself and my husband and our two friends for our 40th birthday celebration. The restaurant was elegant. The view of the city was awesome. The food was delicious and the waiter was on point from beginning to end. He was very attentive. The whole experience was worth the money.

Our server was knowledgeable, appropriately friendly, and efficient. She did not try to become our best friend and allowed us our space and time in ordering. The food, which is pricey for Springfield, Illinois, was delicious and made to perfection. Although our table was not right next to the window, we still had a decent view of Springfield at night. We were too full to taste the desserts, however, they looked delicious.

The lobster bisque, bread assortment, steak filet, salmon, scalloped potatoes and deserts were outstanding! Our favorite appetizer has always been the firecracker shrimp; however, they are now using a little too much breading and need to tone that down a bit in order to restore them to exceptional. Was there for New Years Eve and temp was too warm. The staff is excellent! Will definitely go back.
