Steakhouse
We’re captivated by the natural beauty and bounty of Virginia. That’s why our menu is much more than a traditional steakhouse: terrific cuts, of course, complimented by locally caught seafood, sides fresh from the farmers market, and award-winning wine from across the globe. We’re not just for celebrating, and we’re not just a steakhouse: we’re the sophisticated dining experience that every steakhouse wants to be when it grows up. Valet parking is available, free for the first two hours with validation. Street parking is also available without a permit after 5pm daily and on the weekends.

    We were there for restaurant week. We were impressed with the room when we first entered. It has tall ceilings and looks modern. We all agreed, though, that it still has the smell and feel of a nice hotel. The beautiful bar is just on the other side of a partial wall, so any noise from there carries into the dining room. Even before the bar starting rocking, there was still a lot of ambient noise. We all enjoyed our food well enough. The cocktails and wine were tasty, though they took a while to get to the table. The ricotta app said it came with focaccia, but it was really just thick toasted buttered French bread. The ricotta was delicious. The other diners got the crab cakes, which were very lemony and moist and the green salad, that was dressed well. For the main course, three diners had the hanger steak, which was tender and cooked well. I had the grouper, which was moist and browned on top, but flavorless. The flavor came from the sauce on the plate under the potato. I also misunderstood the description, which said smashed Yukon potato. We thought that meant mashed with peeling, but it was literally a potato that was smashed down. There were only 2 dessert choices and we all got the peach upside-down cake. The cream sauce was super rich. I found the cake to be dense, with not enough peaches. We believe they torched the top to brown the peach, but my husband's was over-torched which gave the fruit a burnt flavor. Regarding service, our server was not particularly kind. He dropped his pen on me and didn't apologize. He asked one diner if he wanted another cocktail but not anyone else. He wasn't engaging. There was another employee who kept dashing behind our table. She was moving, I think, from the bar to the kitchen and she was almost running between our table and the movable wall. Glad we tried it once, but we won't be going back.

    Our wine came after our food. The bottle was preopened. A taste was not offered prior to pouring all of the glasses. If you are going to sell bottles of wine, please instruct staff on the proper way to present and serve. The food was tasty, but the service was so poor that it detracted from the experience.

    Had breakfast this morning & it was delicious. Taylor welcomed us right away. Our server was Angelic. Service was amazing. My husband had the 3 egg omelette & said it was one of his best omelettes he’s ever had. I had the eggs, bacon & potatoes. Eggs were cooked to perfection. Later that night we had reservations for our anniversary. Greeted by Thomas & he was fantastic. He had a card with an embossed melted wax seal & had the card signed by the staff. Was a very lovely touch. Would like to recognize Tiffany our server. She was great. Courtney, & Brandon were also very attentive. It was truly team work. Our food was great. We had the prosciutto with melon as a starter. Husband had the hanger steak & I had the charred zucchini with pasta & calabrian chili oil. This was a great dinner & we recommend giving them a try if you’re in Charlottesville, VA.

    A lovely welcome from the host Thomas, complete with a birthday card signed personally by the entire restaurant staff sealed with a wax stamp bearing the logo of the restaurant and a most thoughtful complementary glass of birthday bubbly! Our server David was gracious, understated, very helpful w/info regarding the new summer menu, efficient and altogether wonderful. The evenjng ended with a beautiful complimentary birthday dessert…chocolate pot au (mint) creme. Fabulous and five-star all the way!! Thank you!

    Decent food but not worth what we paid. Service was exceptional! The hostess went above and beyond. She would be worth returning for.

    Price point too high for quality of food and service. Nice ambiance however. For service the staff should be trained in how to place silverware and wine glasses and how to properly place dishes. With the location and cost I was expecting more. Food was above average but not great.
