    Even though they overbooked for dinner reservations, they were able to accommodate us on the patio. Excellent and friendly service! The portions were very large - glad we shared a steak. Best steak ever! We enjoyed the patio as the evening provided cooler temps and no direct sun. Inside was very crowded and noisy.

    We have been there several times and it never disappoints. We brought our friends there for her birthday celebration. We both ordered the Chilean sea bass with lemon caper butter, tasty, but it was broken. Our husbands ordered the filet that was cooked perfectly mid rare! We also had the lobster Mac N cheese. Delicious, but had to request them to cut the tail up. Overall a wonder meal!

    Wife and I finally got a night off from the kids and went here for a late dinner. We made a great choice! Service was great and so was the food. We ordered multiple appetizers and a ribeye. The steak and the Brussel sprouts stood out. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    We went here for my boyfriends birthday, the food was amazing and the service was wonderful as well. Would 100% recommend. The steak he had was perfectly cooked, and I had salmon with a great wine paring that was recommended by our waitress. They even brought out a brownie for dessert with a candle for him!

    Went for Father’s Day! Service and food was great. I felt a little cramped at the table but nothing too bad; the couple next to us was so kind and friendly. Ambience was slightly noisy but it was a busy Saturday so that’s to be expected.

    Kevin and his entire staff were on point! They sat us quickly, even after we informed them we had an unexpected plus one. Garrett worked with the other wait staff, as a team and they exceeded our expectations. Their 5-Star performance made for a 5-Star experience. If you are a local or find yourself in downtown Lansing, I highly recommend that you stop in!

    Food and wait staff were nothing short of outstanding. Was nice inside, quiet enough to hold conversation. Prices, while high compared to your average dining experience, seemed to be on par with other comparable, high end restaurants. A great place to have a special meal for a special occasion.

    Great meal overall from steak selection to preparation, asparagus not over done on the grill, and frites crusty on the outside but very soft on the inside and great condiments. They also allowed splitting and sharing of large steak between my two friends.

    It took a while to get service once seated but we were early so that was understandable. After that service was fantastic. I ordered the filet medium rare. It came out as ordered but continued to cook to medium on the hot plate while eating.
