    The food was incredible. The shrimp cocktail was the best I've ever had, the bread was warm and the steak was perfectly medium rare. Our server was very nice and never rushed us, but she didn't give us the correct information about the add-on lobster tail (she said we could order a full or a half tail, but it was a half or a whole lobster). The restaurant was a little loud, my husband and I had to lean in to hear each other, but it was a Saturday night. They did give us a free dessert for his birthday along with a card, which was very generous and thoughtful.

    Our server Karla A. made our experience a one of a kind. First time being there and will definitely be back. It was our wedding anniversary and our night turned out better than we expected. She was very friendly, respectful and helpful with recommendations. 5 stars for the restaurant and 5 stars for her!

    Ate here for our wedding dinner and it was amazing!! The food is to die for, please do yourself a favor and try the truffle Mac N Cheese. The bread is FRESH, like actually steaming! You can ask for any kind of drink, they have a talented bartender with a wide selection of liquors. Very kind staff, will make you feel very welcome!

    My date and I had a nice time here for his birthday they went above and beyond making a card for him and bringing him a dessert at the end. My only issue was the steak I ordered medium and it was more medium well and it was way over salted almost too salty to eat. Other than that we enjoyed our time there.

    Overall, had a nice experience. The one thing that kept distracting me was the amount of dust on the magnum bottles of wine above the fireplace. I’m not OCD but the restaurant is so nice that this issue really stands out.

    The service was excellent timing our courses and making sure they met our exit deadline for the ballet. The endive/pear salad had very little pear and a bitterness not offset by the cheese or dressing. I would not reorder or recommend it, Their Caesar was exceptionally good and my husband raved about it and his steak too. The salmon was undercooked and sitting in a messy bowl of thin sauce on top of spinach with its stems, it was not appetizing to see and tasted slimy. I would not recommend it. The carrots were as advertised and good as was the chocolate peanut butter dessert and sorbet. The best thing I had was the garlic prawns with the brioche toast.

    Had booked long in advance inside. They wanted to seat us outside because they had a “big group” in. Hardly do I care - that’s why I made the reservation! After a wait, they opened a table for us inside. My Ribeye was very fat and marbly - not a great experience.

    We had a fun night, Thursday evening, January 12th, enjoying friends, the ambiance of the restaurant, view of the Bay Bridge after finishing at JP Morgan week in San Francisco, and having arrived on Saturday, so we were looking to relax, wind down, and enjoy a stellar meal! This was our first time here for all of us, and we split the Caesar salad, 28-day aged bone-in 32-ounce porterhouse steak medium rare, SF Brian Flannery New York sirloin medium rare, black truffle mac and cheese, Julia Child's potatoes with gruyere cheese, Brussel sprouts, and hen of wood mushrooms. The evening was Epic! The lovely two hostesses that greeted us made us feel welcome, and Adrian was our waiter and made suggestions on meal options along with the wine list. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and steaks were outstanding complimented by the side dishes, plus we have the most amazing view of the Bay Bridge! Thank you to all for a wonderful meal, at a place not to be missed! On a separate note: the lights on the Bay Bridge are funded through private donations, and if the $'s raised do not meet the budget, there is a plan to turn off the lights on the bridge. We have been to Water Bar and Slanted Door (closed on this trip) and always admired this view. Let's hope the lights stay on post March 2023!

    We went there for my husband's birthday, and the food was good but I wasn't amazed by it. The NY steak my husband ordered was tough on one side as it had a bristle through it. I saw him struggle cutting into it, so it was not a good first bite. They comp'd us dessert for that, which was a good gesture. I ordered filet mignon, and that was cooked perfectly as I ordered it. Sides were excellent. Julia Child's potatoes were perfect, and so were the wild mushrooms. I ordered warm apple crisp for dessert and it was barely warm. It's as if it was not in the oven long enough to cook it through. Ice cream was not melting, so obviously, it was not warmed enough. Highlights of the meal were the BC oysters -sweet! The waiter was attentive and nice. We sat in the enclosed outdoor area, which I did not ask for, and it was just not fancy enough. I wanted a special experience for my husband, and it was just disappointing. We ate here another time before, and food was much better, and we had a great experience. It's too bad that it was sub-par last night.

    Finishing up the last part of our trip and decided to dine Epic-ly. Incredible food. Top notch attentive service despite a busy evening. Accommodated a celiac as well as a service animal. It’s most than we normally pay as Canadians, but it was worth every penny.
