We have been here once before but this time it wasn’t full of kids so it was so much more fun than our first visit. Service was great, waiter was super friendly and attentive. Food was very delicious, their cocktail menu is so much fun, you need to order more than one. This is a great spot for special occasions. We wanted to bring the folks so they would get a kick out of how they serve the food. My popcorn shrimp came in a pop corn maker, one of the meals had a samurai sword, the cotton candy came as a wig on a doll head with two cup cakes. The restaurant is decorated very nice. It’s a must visit.

Service and ambiance was top notch. The presentation of food and drinks were amazing however, the overall quality of the entrees were just alright. I'd stick to appetizers and the desserts there.

Food was great, atmosphere was nice, our server was at best a walking zombie, she was as flat as her stringy hair. The server at the next table was lively friendly, and welcoming, our server was Mousey, introverted, and desperately in need of a personality.
We were there to celebrate a birthday and our server was the equivalent to bringing along a wet mop. Luckily, our server was swapped out, pre desert. And the next server gave excellent service.
A word of advice to BG, going forward please check all servers for a pulse, if your serving world class food, in a world class establishment you should have would class service.

I would say to skip it..it was fun and the food was good...presentation was neat, by staff was pretty rude when trying to check in. The manager was very nice though and our waitress was also very nice. I would have appreciated the check being split up though since prices are pretty high and it would be easier to make sure larger parties that order multiple items be charged correctly.

Steak tartare is a must!!! Really good!! The rest of the food is pretty mediocre but the presentation definitely covers for it! I would recommend to dine there at least once just for the experience and the ambiance! Seating is a big tight but overall we enjoyed our 10th marrige anniversary dinner!

Highly recommended making a reservation for celebratory events at this restaurant for s good time ! Service staff are always available with a smile , willing to help take photos , and fully explain their quirky menus and signature cocktails .... you will not be disappointed unless you just want a peaceful , quiet Zen meal, then truly this is not for you !!

I’ve eaten here a few times basically because it’s so expensive but before I was willing to return because I’ve always was happy with the food and service. But this time, the rib eye wasn’t anything to boast about, the salad was overdressed, the service wasn’t bad but for the price I’m paying, it wasn’t good. The music is too loud, the tables are too close together to the point where you feel the need to share your food with the table next to you. I usually would return if the food was memorable and I’m willing to overlook all the other stuff, but for what I payed for what I got was truly a disappointment

This was our first visit. We had heard good things so we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed. This restaurant is amazing! So many unbelievable props. We had to keep our head on a swivel as to not miss a single dish or drink presentation. The food was excellent. The service is outstanding. We even had good conversation with the tables to the left and right of us. Definitely will do again. Just need to get our money right cause the damage is real!

I love this place. I’ve been here once before about 4 years ago and this place is still awesome. I love the presentations of the different foods and drinks that they offer. Our waiter was wonderful. My only issues with this place is that it is a bit pricey but it’s worth it ! Also, they could’ve had spaced out seating. Me and my date felt crammed in between two tables so I definitely did not like that because it was hard to leave the table to go to the restroom and had to have our meals places on the table because the space was limited between our table and others. Finally the music was really loud so hard to hear someone talking to you from across the table without yelling however the music selection was diverse and fun to listen to. Overall it was a great experience an is still my top 5 favorite restaurants to go to

I would strongly suggest anyone wanting to dine here to consider otherwise. Great concept, horrendous execution.

The biggest problem is the management of this place. If your guests are booking months in advance looking forward to the product you are selling, at least do them the honor of prepping your space and dining team accordingly.

1) Waited over half an hour to be seated despite a reservation made two months in advance. Squeezed into a small little corner.

2) Went back and forth with the server who couldn't even explain their menu clearly.

3) Friend finds a piece of METAL (metal!!!!!! you've got to be kidding me) in her salad-- exquisite.

4) Server gives the nonchalant "I will ask our manager" and gives us a juice to try and "recover the error." Why would you give us a beverage when our table specifically didn't want beverages in the first place.... Great.

5) Server asks if we're celebrating any special occasions.... Yes... this is a birthday reservation......... Thank you for not being attentive to the notes in the reservation and prepping accordingly.

Nonetheless left embarrassed I ever suggested this place to ANYONE. Save yourself from a joke and invest your money into another reservation

I’ve never written a negative review but I just had to based the experience here. For the price, or because people should be nice in general, there should be amazing service. It’s a shame that the hosts are so rude. They treat you like you are wasting their time being there and talk back. It’s embarrassing to bring friends somewhere for their first time and immediately receive that kind of treatment, along with talking back to us when they don’t have a table ready a half hour past reservation time. If I ever went back and saw the those hosts I would just walk right out.

The manager and waiters were nice, but the initial treatment from the people who should be greeting you politely was such a horrible encounter that I could never recommend this place to anyone. The one woman working at the bar was very nice and helpful, but another bartender rushed us to “just pick” instead of providing suggestions.

The food is average. The appetizers and deserts are nice, but we’ve tried almost all the main dishes and they are underwhelming. It’s the most overpriced experience considering the food itself isn’t that good and takes forever to come out, so if you’re satisfied with paying as much as you will for some photos that’s the only reason I can see for going. I’d say just go for drinks and dessert.
