    I really wanted to like this place and it is a very pretty spot and decor. Our server tried to be helpful but seemed distracted. More importantly, they completely ditched their theme of unique cuts of steak while not noting that on the menu or even when server first came over. Out of numerous other items as well. The food we did order was fine, but not great or even honestly good, but the prices suggest fine dining. It is not. I hate that this place was not very good, but I also have to be honest about that fact for the benefit of others. They either need to up their game VERY fast or just fold and save themselves the trouble.

    The filet mignon was severely overpriced and fatty. The potatoes with it were cold. Global grill is 1000x better and cheaper. Don't waste your time with Bar Steak

    The food and service from Tanya was phenomenal!!! We had reservations but was sat at a high top by the front door. Did not like that at all. The seating didn’t go with the vibe at all. Overall would come back for the chicken because it was great !

    Amazing service and great meal. The wine menu needed some work, part of the reason for my lack of the fifth star… in all fairness this is like a 4.5/4.75 star rating. I wanted to see more California reds and the red list was lackluster. That said, the red I tried was still phenomenal. I can’t understate that the ambiance and service were well worth the trip and money. This restaurant didn’t disappoint but has a bit of room to grow. I do really hope to see them succeed because they most definitely have that potential and are so close.

    Valentines dinner. Was a little disappointed. I’ve eaten here before and got the New York Strip and it was phenomenal., which is why we went back. This time not so much. First, we got seated directly across from a little recess with a closet in it. An area where the servers would wander in and out of checking their phones. Every time someone would enter they would turn the light on which would glare my wife in the face every time. It wouldn’t have been an issue if this was once or twice, but it was continuously on and off. Second, my wife cut her lip on the chipped glass her sweet tea was in. Our server immediately replaced her glass, but at the caliber of this restaurant I would expect those to be checked prior to serving. We both opted for the Filet Mignon plate. It was a prix fixe menu at $90 a plate, I expected better for that price. The highlight of the meal was the salad and the asparagus. The filet was not very seasoned and overcooked. I’ve gotten better from Outback Steakhouse. And the rest of the items were just meh. The closet light on and off just wouldn’t end so my wife and I took the red velvet cake to go. We got home and ate it and it was very underwhelming, tasted like a boxed cake mix. The service was absolutely fantastic, and our server was great. But, again, for that price I expected better food quality.

    Ordered the lobster roll. The menu said, “half pound lobster on a buttery roll.” What came out was a cold lobster salad roll with mayonnaise. Not at all what you expect with that definition. Also ordered the black a blue chips. The sauce was cold and not great. Chocolate martini was also room temperature. The waiter was friendly, but overall not a good experience.

    There was a full house. Nicely decorated. Wine list needs work. Caymus was the only recognizable red at $150, the rest were low quality. Peach salad was good. Caesar side was meh, slightly brown and chopped too small. Scallop appetizer was well prepared. Steaks(Teres Major) were all cooked appropriately and seasoned well but the cuts of meat were tough. They are affordable cut of meat(a poor man’s filet mignon) Halibut had already run out and mahi-mahi was the fish of the evening. The dish was attractive but extremely salted.The vegetables were all nicely done. The dessert menu appeared to be an after thought, they were cheesecake, chocolate cake, and crème brûlée.

    First timers. We were super excited to try a new restaurant. Both steaks were cooked well done, tough and salted far too much. The apps were great! Service was great! But the main cuts we asked for just left us wildly disappointed. Spent far too much money for our entrees to be a total waste. Maybe we’ll give it another try someday.

    Our group of 8 really enjoyed our meal. The appetizers were wonderful. Scallops, mushrooms, house salad. The entrees were excellent too. We had a couple steaks, and the pork chop. Everything was artfully presented with unique purées, etc. The whipped potatoes were enjoyed by all. Nice choice of sides. Some veggie choices included there which are hard to come by in a lot of places these days. Portions were large enough for the ladies to take some home. Prices are a bit high and we knew that going in, but not unlike other high caliber places. We believe we got our money’s worth. We were seated close to the door used by a lot of staff so one star off for ambience. It was either that or be seated by the back door on a cold night so 🤷‍♀️. There just isn’t much room for larger parties. The noise level was fine and the place is decorated very nicely. Very calming. We saw the executive chef taking great care to see that everything came out looking just right. Definitely a ‘want to go back’ place for us.

    People were nice. Waitress didn’t know cuts of beef nor the vodkas they had available. Some food items were awesome others not so much. New Orleans style shrimp was loaded with house made BBQ sauce that we wouldn’t get again. Steaks were perfect. For price we expected Global Grill service and received more of a restaurant chain level

    After a little issue with the reservation, Johnny stepped in and served up an extraordinary meal. The ribeye was perfectly cooked, flavorful, tender and juicy. Salads beyond compare in Pensacola! Special hats off to our server Sidney, she did everything timely with a smile and no rush. We will definitely be back with friends.

    The menu had 11 steak choices but only had 4 available. This seems poor management for a "steak" house. The seating was not very comfortable and we had reservations and were seated by a service area and the rest rooms. This was our first visit and we were disappointed. The appetizers were good and the whipped potatoes were excellent. Unfortunately the steaks were tough.

    Nice restaurant, OK food if you like it cold , but the most horrible service.  Went there on Christmas Eve. My waitress almost took three hours to get our meals and drinks for a party of three and then when we left, she wasn’t happy with our tip because of her poor service complained to us . It’s not professional when staff complain to customers about what they tip customer is always right when it comes to the quality of the food they order and the service they expect someone on the quality of their workmanship and service !! If I was the Jersey owner, I would let her go.  you’re a new business you haven’t established yourself yet but if you want to repeat from customers, some of your staff needs to go. Sorry but the  customer is always right when it comes to the quality of the food they order and the service they expect

    We eat out 5 days a week, at all the downtown restaurants. This place quickly has moved up into our top 3 for ALL meals and now especially for the 2 hour Happy Hour menu. About 6 offerings of food, all delicious and many discounted cocktails and half price glasses of wine and beer. Plenty of servers on staff and two great bartenders, DC and Chelsea. Managers Richard and Jessica always around to check on you. Don't be in a hurry for your food to come out, it's all made per order, hot and fresh, so just keep drinking. Best part is this place is open 7 days a week.
