    It was a little cramped which is fine, but the waitress next to us was speaking so loudly. Every time she went service the table next to us. It literally affected the ambience of the meal we were having. She had great tips and seems to have worked there for a long time And I wouldn’t normally write a review like this, but absolutely we will remember the experience because of the waitress next-door

    First time dining at the establishment and I’m glad that I took out the time to do so. Had an absolutely delicious dinner with my wife on Valentine’s Day. The service is incredible. I never had to ask for anything they were there to immediately change silverware fill the water glasses, or just simply ask if we need anything. Great experience. Parking is a half block away and a five story structure. Highly Recommend if you’re looking for a great experience and fantastic food.

    Jose was our server and was fantastic. He had a lot of experience with the wines and menus to help us make our decision for our special Valentine’s Day dinner. My filet mignon wagyu medium rare was easily in my top 3 - and maybe number 1 if I gave it more thought - of steaks I’ve ever had. The appetizers, salad, as well as dessert were all wonderful. Highly recommended!

    Floor has a slippery feeling, food is great until dessert. We had lava cake but the chef just plate with chocolate dressing around the cake to trick us like a lava cake which it was not. Abit disappointed! Side dishes: Mashed potatoes not much taste, serve just warm not even hot, Mac and cheese not hot, dishes get cold fast, mushroom is good. *Service overall are great just the food not hot enough

    Everything was outstanding. Went there for my son's birthday and they went out of their way to show us a good time. We ordered the tomahawk steak and it came out amazing. Best steak I had at a restaurant in a long time. The service was top notch thanks to Jennifer. Definitely recommend asking for her if you go. She really made the night a special one. The owner or manager checked up on us as well and made sure things went well. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here, great spot all around!

A very nice lady named Erica and a young guy understood my situation and find me a place in 15 minutes. Erica and Jose the server definitely make me come back next day for more. Food incredible. Thank guys for everything. I will come back for sure.

    Like the interior decor but tight space chairs from other tables bumped against ours. Had multiple issues with server getting stuff wrong and chef overcooked fillet to well done while we ordered medium. Common expensive steakhouse should not get it that wrong. First time and probably the last. $350 later for 2 people

    Easily one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. Great service. Good drinks. I'd probably skip dessert, but everything else was excellent. May be hard to do if you have specific allergens, so check out the menu before you go.

Also, we brought my grand daughter who is 7 and my grandson who is 14 months old. Despite it being a steakhouse, the ambiance was perfect for families too. The food was delicious as well. Definitely, coming back.

    Be careful with going as you have to ask for any hidden fees as we went in New Year’s Eve which I get is a special day, however at no point was it explained by the server nor stated on the menu that it would be an automatic almost 25% gratuity.
