As always, the staff was exceptional and The steaks were magnificent!!!!
The chateaubriand for 2 was excellent. It was a special occasion and we also had apps, the avocado/crab and the fried shrimp, both of which were good but not outstanding. Wine was good and reasonably priced. The experience was marred by the noise level, which made it hard for us to have a normal conversation. Not the best place for a romantic dinner, but the steak was superb.
Our food was delicious! Our server was great. Highly recommend the lobster arancini.
Great Steak ! Expensive dinner, but worth it on a special night on the town.
Wow!! BEST Steak in Ct. by FAR! Cool concept. Great staff. Shrimp Cocktail OUTSTANDING! Great Value steak price is comparable to other local "Steak" places, however then they "upcharge" you for "sides" our Filet Mignon came with potato [three choices] and a vegetable, and it was cooked to perfection! They have sides if you want them, if you can handle them, we had a few, highly recommend the melted Gorgonzola! AAA+ we will be back!
Everything was on point! First time and won’t be my Last. Great food and hospitality
Really friendly staff, and the food was excellent. My husband's ribeye was cooked perfectly and he was thrilled with it. I had the short rib which was rich and delicious. Portions were pretty large in my opinion, and worth the price. Neither of us could finish our meals, so we get to experience them all over again at home. We would definitely go back!
Nice place with friendly staff. We were greeted by more than just the greeters as we entered and left the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was very good.
Always a great time. We go here for all of our corporate events too. No reason to go to any other place in New Haven for a steak!
The food was alright my T-bone steak was to greasy and the drink was watered down
What a gem of a restaurant! Great service and meal. Loved the cast iron pan cooking and presentation.
food and service is amazing
We enjoyed our evening and the food was excellent!!!
Restaurant was busy and loud. Food and drinks were all very good. Not inexpensive but at least you get potato and vegetable with your meal. You don’t have to buy everything all-a carte.
Pricey steak that had grizzle. Very loud making conversation difficult. Excellent service.
The food and service was great! This was my third time visiting and they never disappoint!
This was my first lunch at the restaurant… disappointing. After many excellent dinners, I had high hopes for a delicious lunch in New Haven with a friend. I’ll order something else next time: Gorgonzola salad with chicken didn’t do it for me.
The lobster tail was mush. Filet mignon was not buttery tender melt in your mouth. Our server, Shawn, was attentive. The manager was nice enough to take the lobster tail off our bill. We will not go back.
It was all excellent
Never a let me down, thank you! Food and Service up to-par
The food was absolutely amazing. The best steak we have ever had. Definitely a special occasion place. We will be back!
Great place to celebrate a 40th birthday!
Amazing food! Our server Raul was so great!!
The menu was very nice, something for everyone's taste. We sat at a high top in the bar. Noise is energetic, but has a great vibe.
It was a wonderful experience. We were there for my girlfriend's birthday and I had made my reservation on Open Table. When we arrived, we were seated promptly and at a very nicely located table. The servers were incredibly professional. Our waiter was very attentive to having our food prepared exactly right and ensured that all was done correctly. The food itself was near-perfect. We had the chateubriand for 2, which was served in a hot cast-iron skillet so that I could have mine medium rare and my girlfriend could have hers medium well. All the appetizers and sides were visually pleasing and amazingly tasty. The staff were incredibly accommodating and the entire experience was worth the final bill total. It's not what I'd spend for an average night's dinner, but then again - this night was very special. The only less-than-perfect aspect was the noise level, which was quite loud - with all the energetic conversation. Maybe some attention to acoustics? But...all-in-all, we would definitely return on another special occasion. Very, very pleased with EVERYTHING!!
We went for my husband’s 40th birthday with 3 other couples. Our meals were wonderful and our waiter was so attentive and helpful. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
It was a great experience, waiter was great and friendly. Food was awesome!! Would def go back
The popcorn was a nice too before the 1st course. Very yummy. I had the scallop appetizers (highly recommend) and salmon for dinner. The service was great, thank you
Food was outstanding! Service a bit slow and they did not have bread.
Regular menu, bar menu and specials menu were great. Lots of variety, something for everyone. Food was delicious, presentation was nicely done. A must try if you haven't dined here. I will definately return many more times!
Anniversary dinner. Good and service excellent!
Brussel sprouts were very tasty and the entree portions were huge - a plus. I think some sauce on the side would have been great. We had enough food to take home for another meal. The raw clams were gritty with sand. The oysters were delicious though. We did, however, feel a bit rushed as the staff kept coming over and trying to clear things away when we weren’t done.
Excellent food and service as always
Overall a nice evening at this restaurant. Service however is very slow and they clearly did not have enough staff for the crowd that was present. I had the duck which unfortunately was a very small portion and quite fatty - I would not recommend. Others in our group had the short ribs and salmon both of which received excellent reviews.
Excellent place. Great food and service
Our waitress was so nice ! She even offered to take a photo of us to remember the special evening :) we started with the burrata and beef empanadas- can’t go wrong both were to die for ! For mains, we split the penne a la vodka and the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and broccoli! Every bite was so good!!
We love the food there, pricey but worth it! Our steak is always cooked right
Amazing. Awesome Staff and one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Rest of the food was excellent also.
Food was horribly overcooked. Four of us ate a third of our meals, asked to have it packed up, instead the wait staff threw out $400 worth of our dinner. Never going back, EVER. Patrick Barry.
Awesome. Food was spectacular. Stuffed clams were best we’ve ever had. Steaks cooked perfectly.
Marie our server was absolutely phenomenal.
Can’t wait to go back.
