Very loud hard to hear at our table. Waitress was nice but lacked patience. Took home filet and they always give the steak sauce without even asking. This time I specifically asked and they did not include! Very disappointed. Great food but very pricey.

Quinton was a wonderful attentive, informative waiter. Low the ambience and food always..although the ceaser salad wa a bit soggy and the scallops, perfectly cooked, but a sauce a bit too rich.

This restaurant could have received a terrific review from me, however, the service was so outrageously awful by the lead server it overshadowed the terrific food and ambiance.

All I can say is the lead server (the rest of the wait and bus staff were terrific) was rude to the point that we almost left.

One of my friends is in a wheelchair. The server, I don’t know her name was so rude to my friend and complained about her wheelchair all night. She continuously lamented that the chair was making her job more difficult. Every time she came to our table of 5 women she was frowning and had something negative to say to us.

When I go to a restaurant of this caliber I expect the service to be commensurate with the food. It was a disappointing evening because this woman was so prejudice and rude.

Had to return steak as it was not cooked properly. Food was barely above average.
If you just want ambiance/service and don't care about the food quality, you will love this place.

Had great dine experience.
We had Kumamoto oysters, Kanpachi crudo, bone in ribeye and lamb chop side mashed potatoes and bllocolinis. We loved everything include freshly baked epi bread.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. There were noise but didn’t bother us our age group crowd I felt like. Definitely coming back.

Loud, extremely small pours of alcohol for the huge price tag. The food was good and service excellent but wouldn’t go back. It’s not worth the huge price tag, there are many other restaurants I’d rather pay that much to frequent.

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars in all categories was because of a couple of pesky flies that we had to battle with while we were there. We were sitting indoors and we had to interrupt our meal just to keep them away. Otherwise we do like the place. Hope when we return the fly situation is taken care of.

The steak was delicious. However, we were disappointed that we were NOT told that the salmon had bones. My friend choked on a bone! It was also a little warm in the patio area. I would go back but only for drinks. Sass makes a wonderful dirty martini.

We love the atmosphere here. Looks like a movie set. I’m a Mastro’s steak fan but the steaks here are great. More char than buttery... grilled artichoke was a highlight. Waitstaff perfect.

Beautiful room, we asked for table outside and they seated per our request as the outside patio seemed a bit quieter.

Lots of locals hanging out at the bar. Service was good.

We shared a large porterhouse for 2 bedtween four of us with lots of sides. My favorite dish was the endive salad (at a steak house!). I thought the steak was over cooked as we asked for medium rare, but my husband disagreed. I guess the main thing was that the steak was not evenly cooked.

Overall, would I go back? Maybe? It was quite expensive and I’m not a huge consumer of large portions of red meat.

Went to Beltaire to celebrate our 25th anniversary on a Wednesday evening. We were seated immediately. We thought the restaurant was very pretty. Modern and upscale and both their indoor and outdoor seating areas were attractive. The service was top notch from start to finish. Our waitress, Sarah, took great care of us. I had noted in our reservation that I had a shellfish allergy and she brought it up early on and assured me she would make sure my food was safe for me. I so appreciate when restaurants do that as it allows me to relax and fully enjoy my experience without worrying about cross contamination or hidden ingredients. Delicious warm bread w/butter was placed on the table and refilled. I had a Greek salad which was made table-side which was very good (and fairly big), but just a little heavy on the dressing for me. My husband had the wedge salad. He initially was a little upset that he thought he had ordered it with a vinegarette and it arrived with a ranch dressing instead. The server that brought the salad noticed his look of disappointment and immediately offered to replace it. My husband said it’s fine, he would have it as is and within about a minute the manager came over to apologize and again offered to make it right. My husband again said he would have the salad as it was and he said it was actually the best wedge salad he’s ever had. We were both very impressed with the level of concern/customer service from the wait staff and manager. We both had the short ribs which were soft and flavorful and sitting on a bed of delicious farrow...we both loved our meal. My son ordered a filet mignon and said it was so soft and had great flavor. We were so full after dinner that we passed on dessert, but then Sarah brought us a dessert on the house with a candle in it since she knew we were celebrating our anniversary. It was a delicious chocolate and butterscotch cream pot. Great dinner/experience all around and we look forward to dining there again.

I am a regular customer and go frequently to Baltaire. This restaurant is actually one of my favorite places. They did not just drop the ball they kicked it out of reach...
They forgot items, brought food late and cold.
The food was not he same, even though they insisted that its was. I have ordered the same salad a dozen times( NOT THE SAME) and brought out food late and wrong. had sauce all over it, and did not apologize, and insisted we take the food that we asked to no longer bring because everyone had already finished their sub par Father's Day brunch. NOT to mention, 1 dirty spoon, a cup that was never returned so I should never have coffee again, no cream or sugar unless asked for, and when we originally complained, the wait staff instead of being apologetic offered us some else food that still had the sauce on it and proceeded to hover. The eggs Benedict were taken off the menu, and that was it.

The place is very nicely done and the seating is very comfortable but its very loud and if you go on a busy night, forget about it, on top of that they had a jazz band playing which wasn't necessary and also made it too hard to speak to the people in your party.
The food was good but not worth the money you pay and the service was very slow. Don't know if i would go back, better steak houses out there.
