Poor experience, website shows they have cocktails etc. and when we get there learn it’s a byob. However, they proceed to tell us they only allow kosher wine, so some of our bottles could not be uncorked! They show as closing at 10pm, however they inform us that the kitchen will close at 8:45pm. Food is priced high too, I guess it’s the Mainline effect. Server was friendly however seemed helpless about the situation with kosher alcohol and the kitchen closing early. Would not go again unfortunately.

The first word that comes to mind is disappointment...utter disappointment. I paid $65 for a steak that was advertised, and showed up on the bill as, dry aged. Not only was it not dry aged it was so thin that the edges curled up. This steak brought me back to my youth when my parents would punish me by taking me to Sizzler. This was the worst steak I've ever had and paying $65 for it just adds insult to injury. It's also worth mentioning that the restaurant does not serve alcohol. This was a surprise since the pictures go out of their way to show off the bar area. This must be a common annoyance for people because the waitress made mention of it and there's a sign at the hostess station. This restaurant is the ultimate practical joke. It's a bait and switch tactic that promises a steakhouse environment but the only resemblance to an actual steakhouse is their prices.

THe quality of the food keeps getting better. The only problem is that like many food establishments they are understaffed and service suffers.

The meat dishes were very good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The soup was very over salted, but even more, they were very pushy to leave. Usually in restaurants with their pricing, if you are in by reservation time, you leave when you leave without the lights being turned on and off. We also told them we had a birthday and they did nothing. The main courses are very good.

Lamb tagine was great: tender, tasty, perfect.
Dessert no so: praline crepes had NO praline whatsoever,
name needs to be changed. False advertising!
My main complain had to do with invisible ramp in front.
I parked in the back as I did not know there was a ramp in front.
Very inconvenient. Ambience just fine, service warm and attentive.

Very pricey, which is my only reason for not recommending to a friend.
But, for my special occasion it was just fine.

We were 5 people for dinner on a Tuesday night.
They had only 2 servers on the floor what made the serving experience a disaster. At first the soup was cold , then they brought out only 1 soup out and forgot the second.
One of The appetizers didn't come out at all until we asked about it.
The server was very impatient but who can blame her when she's running like crazy between the tables with a little help of a bus person or a runner that had a toothpick in his mouth the whole time he served the food .
The entrees were good actually ( steak , halibut and salmon) and the dessert ( after was given way after the coffee came out ) was decent.
Unfortunately it's the only kosher restaurant in the area and when you have religious guests, you don't have a choice other then this place.

Delicious meal with a deep menu - steaks, salads, burgers, salads - and more. Great bargain now since BYOB - that will change soon when liquor license is awarded - so move fast.

the citron dragon burger was excellent and the Caesar salad was large and also excellent.

Entering the restaurant it was very nice and very clean. The waitstaff was friendly but ok. The French onion soup was onion soup. We both ordered burgers medium mine well done and my brothers was raw. The fries were excellent and bathrooms clean.

This was my first experience at a Kosher restaurant. I ordered the fish and chips and was
satisfied. Not wowed, satisfied. The other two in our party ordered the rib-eye steak. I must admit that had I not known that they ordered steak I wouldn't have been able to identify the meal. They liked it.

Had a reservation. Plenty of seats in main dining room but were taken to a high top in the bar area next to the "back door." Took 20 minutes to be waited on first time. Virtually every steak and chop was "we're out if those for the night" - pushes us to hamburgers which were good ... but didn't go there for a burger. Servers were very pleasant once we started getting service.

In general, everything was very good.

It was first dinner service. We had an unexpected 3rd guest who was accommodated without problem.

Across all 3 meals, the seasoning and proper level of cooking was uneven.

The salmon with chestnuts entree was perfect as was the tempura broccoli and cauliflower with garlic aioli. The chicken with farrow was overcooked to the point of the chicken being dry.

The French onion soup was tasty but too heavy on the salt. It could have been greatly improved by adding one of the many available parve cheese slices to give a more authentic French onion soup.

The Tuscan Farrow salad had next to no dried cherries which would have balanced the flavor. The chicken and mushroom ragu had good flavor but was again overcooked. Cocktails were excellent.

Overall it is a good value with very nice ambiance and service.

Horrible service. I took my friend for her 30th birthday. We were rushed throughout the entire dinner. We weren't finished our meals and the waitress was already asking for desert. Mind you, google says they are open until 10:00 PM. We were told they are closing at 9:15, "place your desert order now if you want desert" (Our kitchen closes at 9:30). We arrived at 7:30. We are all nurses and are coming from work. I wrote on my invite that it was celebrating a birthday dinner. No candle or happy birthday was provided even after our desert came out with our dinner. For all that I wouldn't have even ordered desert. We were rushed out like we were a bother to the staff. I will never return.

When I arrived I was requested to leave the table at a specific time. While I understand that tables could be booked, I consider that I should have been informed in advance, at the time of the reservation, that there was a specific time to leave the table.

To order a martini and the glass is only three quarters full didn't start me off to happy. One person ordered ribs and they had to be sent back because they were dry. Another ordered wings that were dry and tough. Must have been warmed up. I must say the burgers and fries were good. But I expect more from this establishment.
