Obviously a new restaurant with a brand new staff. Our waitress could not answer one question about the food. The steak and frites was below marginal. The burger was slightly above decent. I asked what the difference was between fries and frites and she was clueless. 3 minutes after we got our food she asked if she could clear the table and then asked three mire times. She got upset that I asked where my beer was after almost 10 minutes of waiting and told me they only had one bartender and she was swamped ( I spoke to bartender two minutes before when I went to bathroom and she was bored).
Great atmosphere. Brand new. Need to add to menu and train servers much much much better. I will review again in a few weeks to see if they have improved, but was very disappointed tonight.

A very limited menu, have a charge of $20 per person if you do not show up
For your reservation. The restaurant was at 20% of capacity

I proposed to my girlfriend at the tiger and peacock after dinner at the complicated pilgrim and from top to bottom this place is unbeatable . The customer service was above and beyond anything I’ve experienced in a hotel setting and I’d like to say thank you to each and every single person that helped make our night so special! Please, if you are not sure on where to step out for the evening, give the Memphian a try!

We thought we had booked reservation for their rooftop restaurant. When we found out it was for the street side venue we wanted to go to the rooftop for a drink and we’re turned away. Tried again to go to the rooftop for an after dinner drink and was again turned away. Will not go back.

Under seasoned and improperly cooked food. Grits were lumpy and medium rare steak was brown not pink. Cocktails were epic. Loved them.

My grits and chicken thighs were ok. They needed more of the yummy sauce and my grits were all clumped together. It seemed like the grits were old because they all stuck together. They were not creamy. The chicken skin on the thighs wasn’t crispy either

Our experience was good, not great. We had a very attentive server and ambiance was the best part. The food was good but nothing spectacular. Honestly a little overpriced. Overall, we are happy we tried it.

The design and decor are fantastic. Loved the light fixtures, the art work, the colors. The bench I sat in was not attached to the wall and didn't have a comfortable back. Our server was delightful. Great mocktails. The area that needs work is the food itself. Very uninspired and not very tasty. They are pretty new so I'll give them another shot.

I’m so happy to have this place in the neighborhood. Thought still new, they definitely need to work on staffing. Both times I have been here they are understaffed and it takes extra long. That being said, the food is great so you should definitely try it.

I guess this place is brand new but I booked it on open table. When we arrived they said they had not gotten their open table software connection working and no tables were available.
