    The service was amazing and the food was perfect. The only problem we had was it was so loud in there we could not hardly even talk to each other. Our server had to crouch down to my level just so he could hear the order, and he said I'm sorry it's so loud in here. There was a rowdy table in there watching a game on the TVs and one guy even shouted very loud. I understand this is not the restaurants fault and I'm so happy that others were having a good time. But, it was supposed to be an intimate date night that ended up were we couldn't even talk to each other much without having to scream. It was not this way last time and we will return again.

    We ate at the Bourbon Bar and the bartender provided great service even though he was super busy. The food was delicious (steak with Boursin cheese and polenta - a specialty of the restaurant). The restaurant has some pretty strict policies (like taking a credit card to make a reservation and only a 10 minute grace period), but we knew that when we reserved and complied. The prices seemed on the high side ($75 for an 8 oz steak) but again, we knew that going in. So, we got the check, put down our credit card and when it was time to sign, we found that there was a 3.5% charge to use our credit or debit card. We were not aware of this extra charge and after all the other rules and the price of dinner, it seemed over the top. We frequently dine at very nice restaurants and have never been charged to use a credit card. Perhaps if we had to give our card to reserve (with a charge if we cancelled) OR if the meal had been more reasonably priced OR they charged a fee for using a card and it had been disclosed before we paid, we would have felt better about the experience.

    Our food was delicious! My husband got the Tuna. He said it was his top five Tuna entrees. I had the filet Oscar style and it was delicious. The steak was cooked to perfection and the crab was very fresh. He had a dark chocolate dessert and said it was great. I had the salted caramel crème brûlée and it was sooo good. Highly recommend,

    I have visited 501 Prime on numerous occasions and typically have found the service, food, atmosphere and overall experience to be great. This past visit was not bad, just presented some frustration. Wednesday nights are oyster nights, so I made a reservation which requires a credit card to hold. Ok. Grilled oysters not included in the promotion, just fresh, raw oysters. Ok. I had grilled oysters previously and they were included in the promotion, but hey. They have also changed their cooking method which is baked, with a crumb topping which was ok, but had way too much tabasco sauce for my preference. It overwhelmed the oysters. Additionally, they used to serve grilled French bread with the oysters, but do not at this time. I had to ask for crackers. The thing that really irks me is that they now charge a 3 1/2% fee for credit card usage indicating the cost goes to cover employee health insurance. So, my thoughts are well that's part of business ownership and maintaining good employees and if I pay in cash, will it impact them getting health insurance? I paid with credit card this time and included a 20% tip; however, next time I may reduce my tip since I'm already supplementing their health insurance by using my credit card. Bottom line, this is really petty, and you might figure out a way to carry these functions without being so off-putting to the customer.
