The waiter Tim forgot about me because I was eating alone. I could not get bread or a drink refill. I had to get a runner to find him so I could get the check.

Too loud. My voice hurts the next day from straining it to carry a conversation. Rib eye steak was OK, not very tender or flavorful. Disappointed they had run out of almost all dessert options. Overall was OK!

We had Thanksgiving dinner there - so it was super busy night and we got our table a bit late, but thats was what we expected. Service was excellent, and food excellent. We shared ARTICHOKE BEIGNETS and loved it. For entrees we had PRIME NEW YORK STRIP and PRIME BEEF SHORT RIB STROGANOFF. Both of them were totally worth of the money. The venue itself is quite noisy but so not perfect for a romantic dinner, but for a relaxed happy night it was great.

I went there for my 45th birthday. Staff was very nice, friendly & accommodating. Good was great. Ambiance inside was "okay" & I say that only because the music coming over the speakers was way too loud. I felt I had to shout to converse with my table guest. I probably should have asked if they could turn down the music, but I didn't. Maybe I'm just too old - LOL. Other than the music, everything else was exceptional. Had a lovely time there anyway & will go there again. I will probably ask to be seated outside next time - LOL

Good food and great people watching especially when seated outside on the front sidewalk. Truffle Mac ‘n Cheese is awesome; the short rib stroganoff was melt in your mouth. Our server, Daryle, was very personable and attentive. We’ll be back!

I made an online reservation for 7 people and we wanted to get dinner in the patio. Unfortunately the patio can accept only a group of 4 to 6 people max... I was a bit surprised but the manager whose I do not remember the name took care of us very professionally and we enjoyed our evening and our dinner. We are going to this place very often because the food is really good, the cuisine is very healthy and creative, We definitely recommend this place and if, by chance, you meet this 7ft manager, you will be treated like a king...Bon Appetit!

For a place known for steaks, these were the most underwhelming steaks I have ordered. Three people ordered, three people were disappointed. The sides came out 15 minutes before dinner.

So our server was wonderful but our food took forever. Not Bret’s fault. The kitchen for some reason was very backed up. Ultimately our meal but not our drinks were comped which was appropriate considering the ridiculous wait so I will give them another chance. The food itself was fantastic and worth the wait. My daughter got a dessert that we all tasted that was fantastic! My husband and I got the New York strip medium rare and it was excellent. Overall I was very impressed except the wait.

Celebrated family birthday there. One of our friends called before and arranged to have champagne and desert for us. They did an outstanding job, even wrote note for a birthday greeting. We were group of 7 and the menu had something for everyone. We all loved what was ordered. Steak was cooked perfectly. Fun watching all the people coming from the Santa Monica Pier. Service was excellent, spot on. Prices are decent. Second time there and looking forward to going back.
