Everything was amazing ! It was our first time having a meal there and we couldn’t have been more impressed . Garth started us off with some old fashions and they were truly phenomenal. The meal was perfect and our server ( female) was beyond knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions . We will definitely be back

Wagyu and Dry-Aged Ribeye steaks were the two best pieces of meat I've ever had. Excellent and attentive staff.

Has it's pros and cons. We had reservations at 8:30 but weren't seated until 8:50. We were placed at a 2 person table crammed between 2 other 2 person tables (they split up a 4 person table- they had clearly overbooked their reservations). This made it impossible to get up without having to ask the other patrons to get up out of their chairs. We were literally less than a foot away from each table- which made it impossible to hear our own conversation- and we could hear every word of their conversations.

Bread was great, salad was good, Mac and cheese was great, but my husband's New York Strip was just mediocre. He ordered it medium-rare but it was medium, and he said it was tough. We usually go to Mastros and he said the steak doesn't even compare here. Disappointing since we were celebrating his 40th Birthday. Probably won't return.

First time visit and we really enjoyed it. We had a great table that was close to the open kitchen so it was fun to watch the action. We had the rib eye and the new york strip. The new york strip was the better of the two steaks.
