I was a waiter for 15 years in New Orleans working similar gigs.....Friendly, ultra pro staff misses no details. Meals and cocktails are spot-on every visit. Habit has me perpherally aware of ongoings @ tables around me. I'm confident my dining experience is consistently replicated.

Our dining experience was great. The meatballs were perfect. As we say at our house, “A Do Again”.

I brought my professional mentor and friend here for a business meal, and he was not dissappointed. The lunch portions were hearty but appropriate and the food execution was perfect. We both ordered the lunch ribeye and were equally satisfied by the surprising lean cut yet flawless preparation. I was able to substitute broccoli for the fries for dietary reasons, which was helpful, and I was very satisfied at how damn good the broccoli tasted. We also had creamed spinach which I would eat at every meal if I could. Harmony offered great service and provided a fun interaction as we ordered and discussed options. This is my go-to impress me restaurant, as they continue to delivery a stellar dining experience!

Extremely generous portion. Made a mistake by over ordering. I guess they are Texasized 😁

Delicious food and very good place for date. Service is commendable including wine suggestion.

Prices on the higher side.

Food and service were delicious. We found the wine list to be extensive but over priced. Seems to be more than a 100% markup.

our waiter Vic was amazing. he was very attentive and knowledgeable about the wine list. he balanced visiting with us while paying close attention to his other tables. it is such a nice atmosphere with a variety of people (couples, families, groups of friends) enjoying different occasions. the sea bass is SO delicious and a very ample portion. my husband devoured his filet (AGAIN) that was cooked to perfection and we loved our blue point oysters we started with. it is also nice to visit with manfred while we are there. definitely a spot we will return to!

Took my wife for her birthday. We were seated, but soon realized that the table was in a pathway for servers. I approached the Manfred the manager and told him the problem. We were immediately move to a far superior table. Our service was fantastic, the food superb and the suggested wine both reasonably priced and went great with our food. Took the excess home and had it the next night.

Would definitely go back again.

We went to B & B for a small celebration and had a lovely experience. Despite being a steakhouse there are good options for a Vegetarian. The main dining room is lovely and the service was outstanding!

The appetizer portions are very large as are the sides (steaks are a la carte). The steak was well prepared (may just a touch on the gray side for medium but I did not mention it) and all the sides were outstanding!

Prices are what you would expect for a steak house. I will definitely go back.

My dad received the worst cut of meat with the most amount of fat on it. For the price paid that cut of meat with fat on it should not have been served.

I liked the restaurant and food; however, I think their prices are much to expensive. The dinner menu did not include entree items under $22 and with everything else as an a la cart item. I had gone to the restaurant for lunch and loved the hamburgers--which is my favorite. I requested a hamburger during dinner (which was not on the menu) and the waiter had talk to two different managers to get one. Strangely, they told me that the kitchen was not set up to prepare hamburgers; but I could go to the bar area and order one during that same time frame. I will not be dining there again unless from the lunch menu at lunch time. It amazes me that the dinner menu is so limited.

We ate upstairs. Very nice setting and loved the live music, and they were nice enough to offer me a half order of the “carpet baggers on the half shell”.

Only down side was we went because they offered pancakes, and they advertised “Vermont maple syrup” but served “pancake syrup”.

Very nice, we went for brunch and would do it again. It was early and quite, but I can easily imagine it be very noisy at night. I wondered if there was a dress code, hopefully for dinner. T-shirts, shorts and ball caps (worn at the table), well, it just didn’t look nice. : (

B&B was just not great. The food was just okay. The ordered brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mac and cheese sides which are all fairly easy home runs normally. The brussels and cauliflower were over dressed and too mushy and the mac and cheese was flavorless and over cooked as well. Our main courses were all just not great and the restaurant felt slightly dirty/greasy. We eat out a lot and were disappointed with B & B and won't be back.

Our visit started great. The service was very attentive and friendly. The interior is high-end industrial chic...in a good way. We ordered the bacon appetizer and bone in rib eye because the waiter gushed about them. The bacon appetizer was ok, but felt like they were trying too hard with mounds of melted Gorgonzola cheese. I ordered my steak medium rare, but there was barely any pink. No one came to check if our steaks were cooked to our liking.....in fact, once our steaks arrived, our waiter was never to be seen again. Well, that’s not true because we did see him visiting every table around us multiple times with barely even a glance at us. We finally had to ask the busboy to track down our waiter for the check.

In summary, it’s a beautiful restaurant with that trendy industrial style that’s starting to pop up all along Washington ave. However the food is just ok and it just feels like the restaurant is trying to be an upscale ($51 steaks) restaurant for rich hipsters. They’re not a steakhouse, you know, they’re a “butcher shop”.

Incredibly overrated. Their "medium-rare" is "medium-plus" at any other good steak place, so know that in advance. Had heard amazing things, but emperor's new clothes IMO. Way better steakhouses out there.
