What an incredible experience. Our waiter, Joel, truly went above and beyond to make sure we had the absolute best dinner, best service, best value, best everything!! I am literally counting down for our next visit.

Only downside was the wait time. I had an 8:30 reservation and we were not seated until 9 pm. It was a business meal, so it was a little embarrassing when we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, with a reservation.

Joel and his incredible service, and the amazingness of the food made the wait totally worth it.

We have been here several times for special occassions. This last time was a real disappointment. The server makes a huge difference and ours this time was aloof, uninterested, and at times, rude. We were a group of 9 adults with 2 teens celebrating a 17th birthday. We were seated in the main dining room at the back of the room, and the tables were so close together that the waitstaff had trouble getting between them to reach the guests. It was pretty cramped. Our server went through the motions but added nothing to the experience. Everything was well timed between courses, but when serving the main course they set down an extra steak, so we knew at that point all the steaks were suspect, and indeed mine was almost well done when I had ordered medium rare... we all switched our steaks around until people had at least close to what they ordered. At the end of the meal our server was MIA for a full 17 minutes. We would have just gotten a check and left, but we were there for a birthday and wanted the celebration cake and cotton candy for her. When he finally showed back up I started to tell him our order and he cut me off and said, "let me guess, celebration cake and cotton candy. That's all anyone orders here." I told him yes that's right and that's why we come there, it's the only place we even eat cotton candy because of the fun, celebratory presentation. He was not impressed. He also never brought out caviar at the beginning of the meal and that's the other reason I ever go there. I remember the time before this time also we practically had to beg for it. Your staff needs to bring that out automatically or at LEAST ask if the guests want it. When spending over $1000 for a meal, these little details make all the difference. I am afraid this is our last time out there, the way we were treated on top of the other issues left a sour taste in our mouths.

The people were lovely. The food had outstanding flavor but it is so dark in there that the very creative dishes could not be seen. Every person is carrying a flashlight, like crime scene investigators. Seriously. Just turn up the lights just a little. I promise it won’t change the mood. Also, I would never tell anyone to go there with people they wanted to have a conversation with. It’s a shouting match at every table. These are honest opinions that I wish someone had shared with us. That all being said, We truly loved every person that we came in contact with. Outstanding service is very rare these days. Would we return? Maybe... very early before the crowd.

My wife and I always go here for special occasions. The staff makes us feel welcome and comfortable. I really like the professionalism, in particular. The staff is obviously trained very well. Those Japanese steaks are unbelievable, too. I wish I could afford to eat a $200 steak on a regular basis, because I’d be there all the time.

We had to wait over an hour for our table - and we had a reservation! The food and service were great as usual but waiting 70 minutes to sit down (especially when it’s a nice place where you spend $400) is just poor planning on the restaurant’s part.

New Years Eve dinner with glam atmosphere with balloons and confetti. Food was very good and service was overall very good. Only issues were that my son ordered mushroom and onion for steak topping and received only onions and we ordered au gratin potatoes but received mashed. Thought the problem was resolved when they told us to enjoy the mashed and also brought the au gratin, until we realized they had charged for both. Did end the evening with the cotton candy desert which was a fun experience with lights and sparklers.

Our party wasn’t sat until an hour after our reservation. Hosting staff had lots of attitude. Apparently they didn’t want to be working that night and it showed. I asked someone how much longer for our table and received a heavy sigh and an I don’t know walk off. If I wanted that kind of attitude a could have dinner with my kids for free. Oh and I practically had to beg one of the girls up front to take my coat. You can get a good dining experience with less attitude at any of the other 10 nice steaks houses in town.

Everything was great about the restaurant from the waiter, and food, and live music. Great for people watching, and you can tell they care about your service and making sure to make your experience worth while. Only complaint was the wait. We had a reservation at 7:30 and were not seated until 8:00. Otherwise the experience was exceptional.
