Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was amazing. Shrimp and steak appetizers were delicious. Swordfish special and filet medallions, brussel sprouts and potatoes were all great. Desserts were good; bananas foster very good!

The Fois gras had freezer burn and was chewy. The mamgef took it off the bill, but there was no excuse that have should have been served based in the caliber of the restaurant.

Then, all the sides were lukewarm. Very disappointing. The sides were put in cold dishes. Every other steak house serves the sides in oven hot dishes to ensure they are hot tableside.

There are so many steak houses, save your disappointment and do one of the other chains.

The waiter and manager on duty that night was not professional. We always out fine dining and this is the worst experience we had here. We've been here many time before but after this experience we might not be back. Our friends and family won't either.

The food was great, the venue is nice, it seems as if Covid paid a toll on service. We had to wait 40 minutes to be seated and entrees took forever to come out.

Having said that, the manager sent us glasses of champagne while we waited and our server Dario was very nice and accommodating. It seems that they are understaffed and the place was full.

I’d definitely go again and give them another chance.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our evening. The grilled romaine salad had lots of flavor. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly. Mac and cheese was not too cheesy…with a nice breading. Broccoli was steamed nicely with a touch of salt. Our server Chris was cordial and attentive. We sat at a table in the bar - and it was exactly what we wanted. So it wasn’t too fancy. Looking forward to returning very soon.

Food was excellent.

We experienced a problem with the service as they missed delivering the sides with the prime order. They did not charge for the sides due to this. However, the sides were also excellent.

I would go back as I feel this was abnormal.

All was fantastic except very slow service. Not sure if that’s on the kitchen or server. We were there for over two hours, maybe three. Everything just took so long. One of our shared sides, asparagus, did not arrive until the absolute end of the meal, despite us inquiring about it repeatedly.

Food was overpriced for the quality. We had the filet. Seated us next to a counter where they stored wine glasses. Every time the set a table they would squeeze between our table and the counter banging the glasses together as they tried to carry them to the table. Boston has a lot better restaurants then this one. I will pass on a return visit
