    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.

    Dinner was amazing! I love coming here for a good date night (even by myself). I got the cowboy ribeye and had a bottle of the Cade. It was delicious and practically melted in my mouth. The wine made it even more amazing. Great people, great food!!

    One of the best steaks in Michigan. I challenge you to find a better one. Service is always top notch. We unfortunately got sat at the bad table. Its tucked away by a curtain blocking a back room. The wall was very scuffed. This is something can be very easily fixed and should be when the tab runs up $300 everytime.

    The space is very small and cramped. Wasn’t available on time and we had to sit at the bar and I was with 3 under 21. Had to get up when the table next to us lost some items in the booth. The food tasted good and service was good. But at that price point I expected excellence. Didn’t hit my expectations.

    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.
