My wife and I took my son out to dinner to celebrate his 13th birthday. The food was very good. It was pricey but the quality was very high. It did take about 20 minutes to get a lousy tasting cup of coffee. But overall the service was very good. They comped a birthday dessert for my son, which was kind. Overall it was a good experience.

Everything was amazing and I would’ve given it a five except the valet out front closed before we even left the restaurant and took my car keys. We had to call them and waited an hour and a half for the valet to return and bring me my car! Not good. But the restaurant manager was a doll, stayed with us the whole time, and did whatever he needed to in order to get my car back that evening.

サービス担当の方は皆さんユーモアがあり
お肉はもちろんのことサイドディッシュのトリュフのマッシュポテトやスタッフオススメのチーズケーキも絶品でした。そしてグラスワインが充実してどれも美味しかったです。

It may have been because it was New Year’s Eve but it was still pretty early. It took a while for us to place our order and for us to receive our entrees. Once we got our entrees, the food was just ok for the amount of money it cost. Also, it was way too dark inside. We could hardly see our steaks. We have had better service and better food at other steak houses.

The first waiter was unfriedly and didn’t want to wait until we had taken our seats. Unbelievable. The steak was burned and well done (we ordered medium!) the brussel sprouts were burned and hard. It was a dinner we have never experienced before.

Sat in the outside enclosed area. Comfortable temperature with heaters and fans provided. Meal was expensive for quality. Ordered tamahawk steak for two, bake potato, mushrooms and sautés spinach. Steak was average - price was high; potato was cool. Had to ask for butter and pepper. Coming from NY this steak house gets and average score from me. Server was friendly.

We would not recommend, especially not for a group/special occasion meal. We estimate our party of 9 was at the table for almost 4 hours! Service was not attentive and needed continuous action on our part: we had to get up to ask about who was serving our table, communication issues about timing for drinks/starters, server did not come to check on us throughout the meal and then, after bringing out birthday dessert, he was ready to bring bill so we had to ask for dessert menus/coffees.

We had reserved a table for 6. When we arrived, the table was one of the booths, which was too narrow for one of our guests. The restaurant was very accommodating, found another table and we all sat very comfortably. Dinner was to celebrate a birthday. Besides the fun candles, the restaurant offered our guest the chocolate chip that he ordered...
The food is pricey, but all were happy.
We will come back.

Great wine list to go with excellent menu. Found a special Pinot Noir from Oregon that paired very well with most everything on the tables....from the Resonance brand, the new US venture of a Burgundy producer. Wine steward was outstanding.

Brought a friend here as an early Christmas present. He ordered the ribeye and pretty much cleaned the plate. I had the burger and it was delicious! The happy hour menu is EXCELLENT and affordable. Service was prompt. Had a beautiful evening.

Food and service were 5 star. Sadly hostess was not on par. Sat us at the worst table in the house despite the restaurant being less than half full. Not sure how this happens. But it does.
