Everything was just ok. Nothing really stood out or was memorable. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't exactly the greatest either.
Also, for the same prices, I could have gone to a slightly better restaurant.

Comfortable seating, extremely respectful and courteous staff. Excellent host and excellent wait staff (Jinx was our waiter). Food was outstanding — good size salad, warm bread, ribeye and bison, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, creme brûlée, carrot cake, and wine and old-fashioned. All excellent.

Sat in the main room. Ambiance is half of that in the bar. Waitress was average /ok until she couldn’t figure out how to run the Open Table points card for $25 of our $200 bill. She was so clearly disgusted that she said she was “DONE” and that our card was rejected that my sweet sweet teenaged daughter, clearly totally shamed, grabbed my wallet for a new credit card. I quickly corrected my daughter that there was nothing wrong with my credit card and the waitress happily told her that she’d charged the WHOLE bill on my credit card so WHATEVER, we were done and that it was not her problem that she had no idea how to deal with OPEN TABLE points . Um what? I have an email on to OPEN TABLE that has not been answered yet about this bs.

Nothing special! Surf and Turf steak was very average. Nothing like a prime steak. Rib eye was thin and not flavorful. Appetizers and sides were great as was the chocolate cake. Overall it was not just not a great fine dining experience. Maybe when restaurants are back to full capacity it will have a more energetic staff and atmosphere

Disappointing sums it up best. Service was slow, and somewhat confused, but the biggest issue was the quality of the steaks, what this restaurant supposedly does. Quality of the steaks about equaled what you would get at Jewel, not a steak house. The “strip steak” didn’t look like one, one wonders if there is some creative cooking going on. We tend not to have luck at this Eddie Merlots, so I think we’ve learned our lesson finally.

My husband and I both had the Filet Del Mar: filet, crab and shrimp. It’s delicious! And of course we had some wine from their extensive wine list. Lately, we’ve enjoyed sitting in the bar area-it’s very cozy.

We went on Valentine's Day and looked ahead at the menu. When you are going to pay a la carte prices, you have certain expectations (think Ruth's Chris, Morton's, etc.) and we were very much looking forward to it. The food was just okay, considering how much we spent. I ordered the ribeye, and it was a tiny bit overcooked (I like medium rare) and VERY tough, which was very surprising! I can't remember what my husband ordered, but I don't remember him raving about it. The only reason we are rating higher is because our server, Jinx, made our experience so enjoyable. He was a fantastic server and used his own bluetooth speaker, smartphone, and playlist to create romantic ambience.

It was Valentines Day, so normally restaurants aren't as accommodating as normal. This one was. Our seats were not in a really good place, near the door on a very cold day. But somebody had to sit there. Our server was on her first day back since the pandemic started so she was excited. Overall, not perfect, but what we hoped for given the day and the weather.

Food was excellent! Only negative comment is the kitchen was slow in bringing out our dinner. Waiter is trying his best to accommodate us. Waiter did an amazing job serving us. With the limited time they told us in beginning of our reservation that we only have 1.5 hours to stay, and catching up another movie reservation we had after dinner. It is hard to rush and eat our dinner.

Our group arrived before eight and enjoyed a drink at the bar. We were seated at 8:30 and did not receive our entrees until 10:30. We ordered a bottle of wine and were not told they were out of it until 10:00.
Kitchen staff were cleaning and closing down the kitchen before our meals came out. We had to contact our waitress and floor manager numerous times to ask the estimated time for our food to come out.
The restaurant was nearly empty while we waited for our food so being “backed up” wasn’t the issue. The manager did give our table a bottle of wine and dessert on the house so that showed to us they understood we were not serviced properly.

Service was super slow it seemed like they were short staffed for a Saturday evening before Valentine’s Day. Food was excellent but on the expensive side compared to comparable restaurants. There was a steady cold draft in the restaurant because of the front door. They should lock that door, and force everyone to use the revolving door.

A very unfortunate experience this past Saturday evening. You cannot over emphasize what service can do for your dining experience. We sat at our table for one hour and only received a drink. The waiter walked by our table at least four times without asking us if we had any questions, wanted an appetizer or if we were ready to place our order!
He basically ignored us. Reading some of the other comments I see we were not the only table who had the same treatment. I cannot comment on the food because after sitting for an hour we decided to leave. The manager did come by our table to apologize and comped our drinks. I appreciate the gesture but it was too little too late.

Very “meh” for the price. Our poor server was very clearly overwhelmed. He had at least 6-7 tables that I could count, so he couldn’t give great service. I’m a server in a casual-fine steakhouse so I honestly just felt bad. Host didn’t seem to wanna do her job and didn’t properly mark our reservation. Came off very rude. Everything was pretty bland and flavorless besides the French onion soup and the eddies potatoes. My steak was WAY over-cooked. I ordered medium rare and it was medium well. It was Pittsburgh style, but just dry and flavorless. Server couldn’t make it over to check on the food so I just ate it. Manager walked around once. She didn’t really seem interested in touching tables or helping the server(s). Filled a couple waters and that was it. Appetizer came before our drinks. Carrot cake came out still frozen. Overall, for $250 it was NOT worth it. Very disappointed. And I don’t blame the server at all. Poor management allowed that to all go on, on one of the busiest restaurant nights of the year. Not impressed.

It was a great way to enjoy a very cold February Friday night. The tables in the bar area have such an enjoyable ambiance and the comfy chairs/fantastic martinis take you back to simpler times. The food is excellent (steak for my husband, salmon for me) and we had a very hospitable server.
