    The place is the perfect size for two-four people to enjoy great food and have conversations. The seasonal specials do not disappoint- ask for the deconstructed crab cake!! All portions were perfect, filling and even enough for me to take home, even though my husband had no problem finishing his portion.

    Absolutely lovely and delicious from start to finish. Feels special without being pretentious. Wonderful cocktail menu and wach dish from appetizers to desert is well thought out and made with care. Servers are knowledgeable, offer good suggestions and advice and provide just the right amount of attentiveness. A superb dining experience we will not soon forget.

    What a cute little restaurant!!! The steaks were amazing, my filet was a perfect medium rare. We split the potato au gratin, the truffle fries and the lobster Mac and cheese. They even took the lobster out of the shell right at the table! Finished with a heavenly piece of mint cheesecake, this place does not disappoint! Definitely make your reservations well in advance, it was pretty busy. Thank you to the staff for making our night extra special

    From the moment we walked in we were treated like we were their favorite family members. Service was well teamed, exceedingly friendly, focused, and top notch! Our order was exceptionally well prepared and served at a most inviting temperature. It is not an establishment that we can frequent but for us, it is the go-to place for special occasions.

    Considering how wonderful the food was and extremely pricey, it was quite disturbing that they had cobwebs all over the light fixtures inside and outside. Plus the carpet needed to be swept. It needs a good deep cleaning, dusting, everything. There was even a fly in our candelabra in the middle of the table. It wasn't noticed by our waitress who lit it. On a good note, the food was fantastic.

    Was in Lansing on a business trip. Went out to Bowdies with some co workers as it was highly recommended by some locals. Our table ordered some cowboy ribeyes and a fillet along with deconstructed crab cake, duck ravioli, lobster mac and potatoes au gratin. Every thing was amazing. The steaks were delicious and were cooked perfectly. Only complaint is now I need to move to Lansing If I want to eat there again.

    Some of the very best service you will find in our state. A very nice selection of wines without being overwhelming. They have genuine bartenders who know how to mix cocktails. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Absolutely delicious. The only suggestion I would make is to clean up the back entrance stairs from the parking lot. Outdoor carpet is disintegrating. Not a good state as you are coming in. This is an A+ place to dine. $$$$

    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.
