    Amazing as always! Continues to be our favorite place to eat! They now are doing a weekly cocktail special that a different waiter creates for the week which is really neat!

    I would give the food 6 stars if possible. The music and lighting and staff were all amazing, my husband enjoyed his birthday dinner so much! They even gave him a dessert with a candle on the house which I thought was a great touch. The drinks were top notch, I had my classic favorite old fashion and my husband raved about the Pablo sour drink he had and highly recommends! We had the shrimp bisque (out of this world) followed by filet minion (heavenly) and the truffle fries (couldn’t put them down). Hands down a must visit and experience for yourself!!

    My fiancé and I were celebrating 5 years together, and this experience couldn’t have been any better! Our waitress was outstanding, and all other restaurant staff we interacted with with phenomenal. When I made the reservation, I put that it was our anniversary and our waitress brought a free dessert (delicious chocolate brownie) to our table after our meal! It was the best salmon I’ve ever had, my fiancé loved the steak, the scallops were to die for, and the potatoes were divine! The only thing we didn’t like was the cocktail my fiancé ordered and he barely drank it. But the waitress noticed and took it off our bill which was definitely not necessary but totally appreciated🥺 cannot give a higher praise!! We will definitely be back!!!

    At the price of a main course I’d expect a side. The $75 steak came alone. The $60 Sea Bass too. No rice, no vegetables, nada. The waiter was not attentive and when at the table interrupted conversation. After spending $200 with tip it was WAY over priced and a lousy value. I will not return.

    We went there for the steak and main sides. Fantastic! We're not sold on the luke warm soup, the tasteless caesar dressing and the not so great desert. ( apple crisp ) just okay in our opinion. Again, steak and main sides, A1 !!!! We did not have appetizers.

    We visited Bowdies for our first anniversary dinner. We have been looking for somewhere new that had an excellent food experience that matched it's price range. Sadly that was not the case. Do not get me wrong, the food was good, but for a $250.00 dinner, good was not what we were expecting. We loved the ambience, as we did when it was The Knight Cap. It was warm and charming. The staff was amazing, attentive, and knowledgeable. The menu is wonderful. My only hesitation in giving a great review is that we expected the best, not just good. If price is no issue, it still might be the place for you though. I would go back at half the price.

    Went for our anniversary, and it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The crab legs were to die for, the salads are huge, and the filet can literally be cut with a spoon. The truffle Mac and cheese and the Seasonal vegetable (roasted carrots with a honey bourbon glaze) were also some of the best sides I’ve ever had. You can tell every staff member takes pride in their job, whether it’s in the kitchen or as a server. Even down to the cocktails, this is by far the BEST PLACE IN LANSING!

    Absolutely loves this place. In the expensive side (dinner and drinks for for 4, bill plus tip was +$500). But that’s not a complaint. Everything about this place was top shelf. The food and the service was superb. Will definitely go back and we drove from West Bloomfield (daughter goes to school at MSU so we decided to celebrate my birthday in Lansing.
