    The meal was delicious. The server James was attentive and professional. The bar service was AWFUL! We waited 15 minutes for our drinks to appear. We heard the table next to us complain. They waited 15-20 minutes also. That is not what you expect from a restaurant of this calibre. The bar staff should be better!! Otherwise, a great steak and accompaniment’s. The carrot cake is something not to be missed! We had a second meal today from my leftovers.

    Excellent food and drink at premium pricing. Appreciated our server James’ attentiveness while not rushing the experience for us. Would dine there again without for sure on a special occasion!

    We loved sitting in the bar area. Our food was pretty good but not hot when we received it. Also the restaurant itself was uncomfortably chilly. Very happy we had jackets with us! Our waiter was friendly but had other tables also and had trouble getting to us in a timely manner. I’m happy this place is opening for lunch and we will return in the future.

    It was Father’s Day so i knew they would be busy our reservation was at 6:45 and we were seated promptly our server was very nice but had a lot of tables to wait on he took our order about 7:30 and our appetizers came out about 8:15 around 9:05 we still hadn’t received our food yet. We asked the server to check and he returned and told us 20more minutes. At that point i spoke with management who then said she was checking we didn’t receive our food until about 9:45 and then were told at that point that they were out of some of the sides we ordered i have dined there several times and have never had this bad service!

    Meh. No special brunch menu for Father’s Day and food was overpriced. Booked on Open Table and they couldn’t find our reservation. Hardly no one in the restaurant.

    Weren’t ready for our reservation. Did not tell us the outdoor seating we reserved was actually closed. Sat us 10+ minutes late inside and then no one even brought us water for 10+ minutes. We left.

    Service was slow from kitchen and bar. Our appetizer arrived after our meal. Server mentioned it to management and they did credit the bill for it. Her mojito was very slow arriving. Food is OK but not more memorable than other places at same level. It was very loud. Personally we enjoy going to a place like Coopers Hawk or Ruth Chris more.

    Waited 25 minutes for water glasses to be filled, which were filled by a busser. I finally asked the the manager if anyone was waiting on our table. That is when we got water. Someone other than our waiter came over to take our drink order and appetizer order. Our waiter stopped by finally and asked if anyone had taken our drink order and we said yes. He said he would go get the drinks. After walking by our table three times with nothing in his hands we finally got our drinks, 10 minutes after ordering. However, they bought my wife’s wine without a glass and had to ask for the glass and wait. We finally got to order our dinner over 15 minutes after receiving our drinks. Our salads came and my wife’s salad had croutons on it which she said twice no croutons. We had to ask for the bread that every other table had. Our food finally came and they brought the wrong dinner for my wife. I was halfway done with my steak before she got her correct meal. We never received refills on water until we asked for it, even though he passed our table with the water pitcher and filled other table glasses. We never were asked if we wanted another drink from the bar. In short, we will never go back. We will stay with St. Elmo’s, Harry and Izzy’s, and 1933 for our special occasion dinners.

    Booked a reservation for an outdoor table. Came dressed appropriately for an outdoor table in the summer as opposed to a chilly dining room. Was informed when we arrived that the patio was unavailable due to a private event. Either don't allow me to make a reservation for an outdoor table in the first place, or contact me ahead of time when you know you've booked it over top of other reservations.
