    Put in my order for dinner at 945- just 2 salads with salmon. 40 minutes later we ask the waitress about why our salads are taking so long to come out. She runs back to the kitchen and comes back out and says “ sorry, I don’t know why they closed out your ticket but the kitchen is now closed and there’s nothing I can do about it”. The manager comes over apologizes and goes back to the kitchen… I’m assuming she’s getting our salads… 15 min later … it’s now 11pm… and says here is a 25 dollar gift card. Unfortunately the chef will not budge and make the salad. Lol what a horrible experience. It’s almost a joke to be honest. Couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Never again.

    Great experience! Fantastic meal, ambiance, and service by Shannon. We chose an outdoor table on the street. It’s a little pricey, but portions are generous and the food was delicious. We will be back… this was our first time eating here. Highly recommend!!

    After the Charity Event for the North American Auto Show, we went to a place that was just as energetic as the show. Food was great, service was excellent and the staff from Valet to servers were beyond our expectations. Great job!

    Unfortunately this visit was not as positive as prior experiences. Very loud for a Monday night. Very difficult to converse. Even difficult to hear the waiter. Typically would stay for dessert or after dinner drinks, but did not. Ironically, when made the reservation requested a quiet table (this was a dinner with work colleagues and spouses). Thought we might return in next month for another business function, but now looking at other places too.

    We had to keep asking for a server after being seated. We first were asked if we were helped and we said no. Then we moved seats because it was so loud. Then we got to quieter spot and waited for help and no one paid us any attention. And so I had to ask someone to bring a server and then we waited, nothing happened. Then I saw a waitress helping a table and called her to swing by and she did and then she said she could be our server. She was nice and good waitress. But overall, disappointing experience.

    The manager, Kayla refused to sit myself and my guest inside for our reservation. She said we would have to sit outside although it was 70 degrees, chilly, and drizzling. We did not stay due to her poor attitude and refusal to sit us inside despite having a reservation. We were able to get seated at social kitchen right away. Worst experience ever.

    I’ve been to 220 a handful of times and it’s been an absolutely lovely experience each time. The restaurant is beautiful and inviting. The service is top notch with everyone being extremely friendly and attentive. We had an especially great experience with our server Elvis on Friday night. The food is delicious from the appetizers to the desserts. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal with great service.

He recommended the Tomahawk, even though it was a 42 oz steak we devoured the entire thing. Will come back soon .
