The only negative comment I can make is the outdoor elements ( flies, bugs) interfered with the overall enjoyment of the meal. Everything else was exceptional. Thank you.

This was our first visit with our two daughters. We visited during Saturday night peak time so most tables were occupied. Probably too busy for the crew to handle the load. We waited over an hour for appetizers and then another hour for the entree to be served. The main dish - fish special - had the sauce cartelized from sitting on the heater for so long that it was rock solid and the rest of the food was glued to it. We did not reject the food as our kids were exhausted by the wait so we just bit the bullet. Not coming back soon.

We are a gay couple who went for a date at Christopher’s recently. Nobody said or did anything explicitly homophobic, and to their credit they did set up our table with us at corners next to each other (date-style) as opposed to across from each other. But we definitely felt that some of the wait staff were uncomfortable and did not know quite how to approach us. Again, nobody was mean or said anything bad. Just a general sense of “uuuuuh, what do I say?” It seemed weird in the 21st Century in a town with plenty of gay people. And while I can’t be certain, we have eaten at hundreds - possibly thousands - of restaurants without feeling this way, so don’t think we are being hypersensitive.

Food and service were superb. The preparation was top notch and there were many specials. I had the Wagyu filet mignon and it was extremely tender and flavorful. I would give a five star rating overall, except I was put off by an $8 charge on my bill for using a credit card! I have never encountered this. When your bill for two people comes to over $300, you shouldn’t be nickel and dimedl like this.

The owner and staff could not be any more helpful and making our evening enjoyable. They responded to our unhappiness with a party of rude and disrespectful women that could care less about other people. These ladies and I use that term very loosely created an atmosphere in which no one could hear one another without screaming. The staff responded Immediatelyand provided another table in a closed section of the restaurant . At first I was worried that perhaps we would not be taken care of in the usual manner which was not the case In fact they repeatedly went out of their way to make us feel comfortable at all times. People were great the food was great and we had a great time. Will return soon.

Poor management had to wait to get the drink orders had to ask the waiter sever times what happened to the drinks
The food order seemed to get lost in the kitchen
I asked the manager owner why it was taking so long to get our food and he said the kitchen is overwhelmed
He then told me he’d take care of us for dessert
I really only wanted our dinner order
It finally arrived after one hour of arrival
The management is truly not in sinc with the needs of the customer and the staff was not well trained
I’m sorry to say I will never return to such disorder
Of course he never “took care of dessert”

I was glad to get the reservation for Mother's Day Brunch. But, the choice of food was like dorm food...eggs, waffle, french toast, bagel, cream cheese. And, it was very expensive. For the five of us, it cost over $400.

This was my first and last time there. I never write reviews, but, I couldn't just let this go.

The lobster roll was our choice for an appetizer, it was incredible! I would go back and order it as a lite lunch! My filet minion and lobster tail were perfectly seasoned and cooked. My husband had the lamb and potatoes, also very tasty. For dessert we had the cheesecake and lava cake, the presentation was beautiful and the lava cake was just the right portion. My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and we were not disappointed.

The food and service was outstanding, the only thing lacking was their wine list. It was filled with big name brands and nothing else. Some level of curation of a nicer list would certainly elevate the level of this restaurant.

A wonderful upscale new restaurant with inventive and excellent cuisine.
A bit expensive, so might be for special occasions for most.

One aspect I did not appreciate was springing a 3% surcharge on credit cards.
Considering the cost of eating here, I thought that was a turnoff. The 4 of us spent over $400.00, and it just seemed like a 'bush league' move.

I would prefer they build the 3% into the cost, rather than seeing it being charged as a credit card fee. I think that would be wiser, and a good consumer like myself would not be upset or appalled. It is the first time this was ever charged to me in a restaurant in my life. I found it distasteful.
DROP THIS CHARGE PLEASE!

Otherwise, it was wonderful!

We were a party of 5 on a Friday night. We had a really outstanding meal. It was expensive, but honestly, if I enjoy my food, I don't mind paying money, and everyone truly enjoyed their meal. All of the steaks were high quality and cooked to perfection. My husband ordered a seafood salad which he said was super fresh and one of the best that he had since our trip to Sicily. My pasta appetizer course was fantastic. I also had the soft shell crab special that, honestly, was out of this world. This restaurant has Manhattan prices, and if the food quality were not at Manhattan caliber, I would have been mad, but I can honestly say it was. I will go back, without question, and have already booked another reservation for my husband's birthday. We hadn't been to a restaurant since the pandemic, and it was the perfect way to celebrate our first restaurant experience since being fully vaccinated. By the way, we felt the tables were nicely spaced, and the entire staff went out of their way to wear masks and be safe. Thank you, Christopher's!
