It was very delicious food. The service was excellent and it was a quiet place to enjoy dinner with my wife. It is a bit pricey but as it should be with what you get.

Server, Janene was amazing. Food served hot. Steak excellent. Fish breaded more than expected. Mashed potatoes were on the menu with each meal instead we got deep fried potatoes. Vegetables so tough you could hardly cut them with a knife. Glad we went but we’re disappointed in the end.

Greeted right when we walked in and taken to our table. Server was very nice and talked us through the menu. Ambience was very nice with the Christmas lights still up. My husband loved his French onion soup and said his steak was perfect. I got the lamb which was good. Drinks were not too badly priced. Only thing I’d change is the dessert seemed a little “out of the box” compared to everything else. Meal for 2 adults came to $150 + tip.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Our food was excellent, as was the atmosphere. Abbey, our waitress, made our evening so special. Her courteous, pleasant personality brought a smile to our faces and made the evening even memorable for us.

The service was phenomenally attentive and friendly. The steak was tender and flavorful and paired well with the vegetables and potatoes. My wife was thoroughly impressed with the seafood platter. The cocktails were well worth the price.

We both ordered the prime rib special and the the meat was prepared perfectly as well as the side vegetables. We appreciated the complimentary champagne on our anniversary which was also very pleasant. The bread rolls are very delightful, as well as our appetizer, portobello mushrooms and beef tenderloin which is my favorite appetizer of yours. Will be returning for our next special occasion!

Sub par meal. First drink the tonic was flat. I sent it back for a whiskey on the rocks, the wait was so long I had to find a waiter to find my waitress. The drink clearly had being sitting, as the ice was very melted. Both our filets were ordered medium, but came out well done. My wife's sweet potato was ice cold. The shrimp I ordered was described as 5 grilled shrimp. I was served 4, I asked and was told they were only giving me 4 because they were larger than usual. Strange response. It is hard to imagine ordering a $100 steak in this sort of place, clearly preparing that type of prime steak is definitely out of this restaurant's league. I cannot recommend and will not return.

The food was quite good but not outstanding. Not on the level of Mabel Gray in Hazel Park, for example. Value-wise it was expensive. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. The ambiance was excellent and the noise level low. Overall, I would recommend for a nice dining experience.

Everything was absolutely wonderful from the front desk to our server and other employees visiting our table as well as the food and drinks. Our only negative feedback surrounds the noise level - we’ve always enjoyed the ambiance yet our most recent experience wasn’t the same in that arena…there seemed to be a private party in a separate back room, however the doors remained open making it quite noisy at times. There was also another patron sitting 3 tables over who was FaceTiming and watching video while we were trying to enjoy a special night out without our kids to celebrate our anniversary…other than that, we enjoyed our time together. Thank you!

We went here for a nice dinner with the family (8) for my wife's birthday. It was a nice place but have had better food for the same and less money. They put us in a room in the back by ourselves it was very quiet. A little too much energy from the waitress, I had to send my steak back it was basically raw but it was good when it came back out. Not disappointed I went but probably won't go back.

Great service. Food was good but not as good as we’ve experienced in other fine dining steak restaurants. Appetizer so salty it was difficult to enjoy, dessert so sweet that flavors were lost. Potatoes not as described on menu.

The server and service were very good! Wedge salad was excellent and the onion soup was pretty good. Unfortunately my steak that I ordered medium rare was definitely medium and my daughters was medium well although she ordered medium rare to medium. The manager was kind enough to cut mine and discount hers. However I wish the steaks had been prepared correctly so I would want to go back to this restaurant however that’s not the case.
