We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and we were fortunate enough to get the wine room. We had a wonderful experience. So nice dining in our private room. Our server Ryan was very nice and attentive. The manager was gracious enough to give us a private tour of the theater rooms also. Overall a very nice evening with our friends at a very nice restaurant.

The cut of meat I got was perfect. The fact that it was sent back and brought back twice still not being cooked properly was a bit frustrating. My wife and I ordered a bottle of wine thank god being she ordered iced tea and never got a refill during the whole meal. Ordered my steak medium well and it was medium if were lucky. If it were not for the manager not the Gm but the manger we wouldn’t have had much service at all so kudos to him. The waiter forgot my salad and the manger had to bring it out. Desert was great and the meat a cheese board was delicious. Feel like a more should’ve been done being the steak was sent back twice and I still didn’t finish it due to being under cooked for my liking. The waiter had excuse after excuse when he was around or would show up after the manger had done his job for him. Waiter service very poor. Manager service he definitely tried to step up. The gm did step in and take ten dollars off the bill which was a little insulting but it was better then nothing. We may try one more time not sure yet. The manager def needs a raise or a promotion.

Drinks were fabulous as well as the service! My bone in ribeye was underdone and a lot more fat than I would have liked.
The AP hashbrowns and a great side salad are accompanied with your dinners. That is a plus that most steakhouses do not have
Will be back soon!

Only thing I can recommend is, make sure when someone makes a reservation, please read if there is an occasion that is being celebrated. My husband took me there for my Birthday and it wasn’t recognized. I didn’t mind, but my husband was disappointed for me. Otherwise, this is our favorite restaurant. 5 ⭐️+

Disappointing. Food was sub-par, service could have been so much better. There were 5 of us and we each ordered a different entree and we all agreed that we've had much better. Pricey for mediocre. Walking into the restaurant we had high hopes, only to discover all of the outdoor/patio embellishments were plastic! Ugh! Plastic succulents, plastic trees, plastic greenery.

Tucked away in an unusual location, which is unique, the interior atmosphere was fairly typical for what you would expect with a finer dining spot in NE Ohio. The staff was very friendly, including our server, and the GM and Sommelier who both stopped bye. The food was good, I had the strip (tender, juicy, maybe a tad under-seasoned, and AP home fries (a tad over seasoned), my wife had the panko Grouper and purple potato hash (both good). Cocktails were good, apps were good, tower carrot cake is huge (and good). I wasn't overwhelmed, but also not disappointed with our first visit, which accounts for the many "goods" used here. We will go back.

Excellent from the moment we walked in! Customer service and delicious food are top priority here and it definitely shows. Everything from our appetizers to our desserts and all the yummy food in between were delicious and well thought out. My husband enjoyed the specialty cocktail of the evening, a banana bread bourbon drink. Thank you to our wonderful server, the chef and all of the awesome employees for a great dinner out!! We look forward to returning.

This is a special occasion kind of place. From the moment you walk in, you know you are in for a unique dining experience. We opted for the shrimp cocktail appetizer - fresh, tender and loved that the board consisted of additional horseradish to add to the already delicious cocktail sauce. My husband ordered the filet with whipped potatoes. His steak was tender and perfectly cooked but could have been hotter, it was lukewarm. I ordered the halibut cheek special and was very happy with my choice. The fish was flaky, mild and the bean and arugula side was very unique. The Tempranillo was a nice change of pace and my Pinot Grigio paired well with my fish. Our server was new and did a good job - he did take our bread away too early but that is the only complaint - which is hardly a complaint, we could have asked for more. Overall, very satisfied and had a wonderful time. We even got a tour of the “screen suites” and other rooms that will be open soon. We will be back to make more memories.

Fantastic experience at this hidden gem. Great service from reception, bar staff, manager and our server. Will definitely go back. Delicious food and innovative cocktails. I had the pork chop and my wife had the grouper special. We also ordered oysters on the half shell and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. All extremely well presented and unbelievably flavorful. Very nice experience and glad we tried.

Only one word- outstanding! We dined outside and was well taken care of by everyone, from the host to the wine Stewart. The original wine we ordered they were out of. The Stewart was very knowledgeable on a fantastic second choice. On to the food. I have never had so many offerings on the features list. My wife ordered the grouper as well as her sister in law. He brother ordered the surf and turf. I stuck to steak and potatoes. All the food was perfect. I noticed that you could not just walk in they were booked. That should tell you something. We will be back soon.

If you didn’t know this restaurant was there, you’d never find it….but once you do, it will be a delight. Service was impeccable, and all employees were friendly. Pricey for us, but was a special event (our 21st wedding anniversary). It is a small restaurant for a cozy meal. Drinks were superb. Our waiter was the chef’s son….couldn’t have been nicer!
