    Food prepared good and drinks were nice. Dry aged steak was good (not as good as it was last time I was here about a year ago), but didn't see any meat in the dry aged locker in the front of the place

    Very disappointing :(. Thought this would have been an amazing meal reading the reviews. But nevertheless it was not. The server didn’t quit understand anything we said. My steak came over done and dry and yes it was over 40 bucks. The potatoes were dry and under seasoned. The asparagus was over cooked The bread pudding, that was a recommendation, was dry and did not taste very good. The coffee was not hot and it tasted like it was sitting all day. Our bill was 250. Just a waste of my money. I love good food and i don’t mine spending money for some really good food and service. But this was a waste of time and money. So sad inside.

    I ordered the Garden Wedge salad that said on the menu it was veggies and quinoa - came out and it was a wedge with bacon and blue cheese crumbles. I don’t eat pork so I said “I think they brought the wrong salad, it didn’t say bacon or cheese?” The took it away and brought back the same salad with only some of the bacon taken off. It was obvious they just picked the bigger pieces off. I ordered the NY strip which was really bad - grisly with fat. Almost inedible. Vegetable sides were over cooked and small portions. Really disappointing especially for an expensive a la carte steakhouse. Won’t be back.

    Two out of four steaks in my party were severely overcooked. Drinks were good, service was good, but the main event (ribeye and New York strip) was quite underwhelming especially for the price.

    I visited this restaurant during Restaurant Week and so glad that I did. Food was delicious I wish I had a photo it was so good it didn't last on the plate. It is a must visit if you're in the area. I had slow roasted short ribs.

    Definitely not the experience we had hope to have on our date night. We arrived and was greeted by a friendly hostess. At our table our wait staff arrived promptly but made us feel very rushed. We explained cocktails first, then we will Order dinner, etc. our drink arrived and she stood there wanting to take our order. The food was ok. Drinks were very nice. Would not go back. Definitely Ruth Chris , J. Gilbert’s, and Capital Grill a better option for us.

    Mostly the food just wasn’t to my taste. The smoked prime rib seem to be for people who like smoke flavor and not prime rib. The mushroom-crusted ribeye had no visible or palatable mushrooms. When I mentioned that they brought me their side of mushrooms, which taste entirely like garlic salt and no mushroom flavor is able to peek through. It was a very quiet Friday night, no issues getting a table, I think this place is more set up for the businesses around there than for evening diners.

    It was a quiet Friday and that must have been unusual- 4th of July weekend. The beet salad was beautifully presented and so fresh. Just the right amount. The creamed spinach was INSANE! Tasted a little more like spinach queso but the consistency and flavor was awesome- felt the calories racking up there! The filet and the sirloin were cooked to perfection. Great flavor. The waiter was a professional. Not there too much but just enough. Will definitely return when we can sit in the outside area too. Loved it.

    Outdoor seating, friendly knowledgeable staff. The prime rib is out of this world, wonderful smoky flavor. Great apps and sides, handmade carmel on the desserts, a scotch selection to die for. We can't wait to go back and try everything else.

    We are so happy we discovered this place! Will definitely go on our list of good date night places- and we’ve already recommended it to friends! Food was delicious! Cocktails were refreshing (try the Prime Vesper! My new favorite!). Really nice ambiance, outdoor seating was spacious. The waiter was excellent- showed the perfect amount of attention. One great aspect of our new favorite steakhouse is the cigar menu! We picked out a delicious Montecristo for our walk home. Cannot wait to return!

    Date night, steak was fibrous and overpriced. My husband had to send his steak back because it was severely overcooked, looked medium well and they claimed it was medium rare. Classic wedge salad was yummy though.

    Awesome service, sat at the bar with Brandon, cheerful as always. The beet & fig salad was absolutely phenomenal. Delicately balanced, sweet and savory, beautifully plated…symphonic medley in the mouth. Honestly the best beet salad I’ve had to date. And the striped bass was impeccable! The skin perfectly crisped, flesh very moist, cooked to perfection. I will say there was a bit too much sauce, less is more in my opinion, it was swimming in excessive juice…. despite that, I am certain those will be my go to dishes for the Spring menu! Husband’s prime rib was perfectly trimmed and delectable as usual, is the signature dish for a reason!
