Despite making a reservation 2 weeks in advance, we were escorted upstairs and told to pick our seats in the bar area. Though we walked up the stairs, it was the beginning of a downhill slide. We came for a quiet and romantic evening but instead were greeted with a noisy room and a view of the swinging kitchen door (the best of the available seating). We ordered 4 different food selections, a glass of wine, and their version of a White Russian (which tasted like a mixture of acetone and soy sauce). The food items were less than underwhelming (my wife has made a better risotto from a box at Walmart) and there was not a single thing we enjoyed enough to finish. The only reason we did not walk out was because of the exceptional service by our waiter, Joe Don. We typically spend around $200 on a special night out but were embarrassed of the $95 we gave to 501 prime. The only portion of that amount well spent was the tip. We left hungry and chose going to Dairy Queen over giving another cent to this restaurant. Needless to say, we will not be returning as it was our worst dining experience yet. I might could understand if we were poorly dressed or made a scene but my wife wore an $850 pair of shoes if that says anything about our appearance. We clearly came for a nice evening and were given zero respect or even an apology for not having a table ready in the dining area downstairs.

The filet was not tender, the Ceassars salad had very little flavor and the Sea Bass batter was too salty. We did not care for the music, and the food was over priced considering the streak being tuff and the Sea Bass and salad results.

Got the cheese and truffle app and only got 2 bits of toasted bread and a slice of cheese!!! What a joke! Asked the server and he just brought a bread basket. 😡 The place reeked of stale fish. The sides are $5 for plain mashed potatoes. All sides come in a small dish. My steak at least was great. In my opinion, the prices don’t match the value. I won’t be back and suggest if you want quality for the amount you pay for the food, you look elsewhere.

We decided to sit upstairs and it was not busy. The food was great but every time we asked for a minor change in a dish server said could not be done, or I wish we had it. Server would disappear, and we had to get up and get own drinks at times.

While it was a very cool reuse of an old building. I thought the price for the food quality was very excessive. I have the pinapple rib eye which for the meat portion was pretty good but lots of inedible grizzle. We ordered a side of shrimp for my wife and I to split. It was only 3 shrimp. The bill $138 including tip for the two of us with only 3 drinks total in that bill. For my money Blue Springs outshines 501 in every category except the ambiance and would be my choice for the next steak dinner.

Food was great. Table was two small. Service was poor for a $200 dinner. Apps came out with salad. First bite of salad and entrees came out. Server was at table next to us 9 times and never checked on us. Never ask how my steak was cooked. Took dessert home and chose the one recommended. Could hardly put my fork in it. It seemed like it was from previous weekend and frozen and used again.

Enjoyed dinner BUT we were seated at a tiny tiny table for 2 we had to put things on the floor we were never offered bread& butter with our meal were asked for a shot of Bacardi Tum they didn’t have it only 1 weird brand and 1 very high end brand we passed on it who doesn’t serve Bacardi rum? The bread pudding was excellent. I got grilled shrimp & polenta the shrimp was a little too charred not burned but I got indegestion later too Smokey. But it was good. My husband got the mushroom risotto very very rich & s little too thick in general good not excellent as we expected

I like this place. The waitress was very helpful and patient. However, I had to send my 18 oz steak, requested medium-rare , back as it was rare and for me inedible. It came back a little more charred but not anymore cooked. I cut up into 4 pcs, took it home and froze to cook and eat at another time.

I ordered the house wine, but was charged for the premium wine; I didn't correct the waitress because of the couple we were with. My husband ordered the pork chop and he didn't want the apple topping, so that may have been the problem, but the chop was extremely dry. You could tell just by looking at it!

Our food and service were excellent. Particularly impressed with the fresh oysters - great for second week in a row and we had both raw and grilled. The grilled ones had just enough of a burn on them to warm up and provide a smoky flavor. One in our party had a small filet and it was cooked perfectly, very tender and tasty. The salted caramel bourbon butter cake is TDF - 4 of us shared it and it provided a great sweet tasting finish to our dinner.

The round booth seating is a little cramped for 4 medium adult size people. Tables get really crowded with drinks, appetizers, entries, etc.


The wine menu says it is a 6 oz pour and I'm a little skeptical, but will give benefit of the doubt with the shape and size of the glasses.

When I ask to have my steak cooked a certain way, I expect them to honor that request, not tell me they won't butterfly a filet. I'm 68 years old I've had steaks all over the world. I think I know how I like my food. Also way over priced and was told the bar was OUT of some very common liquors. Booths are very small and very close to seats.

First time to try their new location. We were big fans of Central Park Fusion and 501 is every bit as good with cool atmosphere. Was a little too cold to spend much time on the deck but enjoyed a quick glass of wine by the fireplace and anticipate this being a great spot as weather warms. Ordered off the “specials menu” and had the blackened ribeye and ahi tuna-AMAZING! Hope they make it on the regular menu!
