My flight was delayed a little so I was a little late for my reservation. It was not a problem and my table was ready and waiting. I was dining alone and did not feel awkward at all. The steak was amazing!

Great service and ambiance. Most dishes were alacarte, which made some of the items (steaks in particular) pricey.

Server was great. Attentive. Courteous. Helpful. Tables were very close together making it difficult to get in and out of seat. Very loud patrons at the close tables making it tough to have our own conversation at our table.

We made a same-day OpenTable reservation for an "outdoor table" but when we arrived they told us their outdoor seating wasn't available that day, and encouraged us to sit indoors. I'm not yet particularly comfortable eating indoors; this felt like bait and switch.

Muy buen servicio. Presiona un poco el cartel que ponen en la mesa de solo 1.30 hr para comer, cuando uno quiere ir sentarse y disfrutar, no debería estar ese mensaje en las mesas.

I celebrated my 51st birthday with my family. Everything was absolutely amazing. The crab cakes were very crabby and so moist. The calamari fritti was perfectly cooked. For the main course, we had the Tomahawk steak, Lamb chops, steamed spinach, mushrooms, and the brussel sprouts. It was delicious but I must say that the LAMB CHOPS were PHENOMENAL. My entire dining experience was perfect. Our server, Antonio, was extremely attentive to my requests. My highlight of the evening was the waitstaff coming together to serenade me with the Happy Birthday song. I’ll definitely return.

We had great memories at this restaurant so we came back and it wasn’t quite as good as we remembered. The filets were outstanding, ny strip was good, carbonara was marginal. If that was pancetta, then it was unlike any pancetta I’ve ever had. It was huge fatty smoked chunks. Same chunks that were in the Brussels sprouts which ruined those too. Calamari was outstanding & dolcetto d’ Alba was fantastic and well priced. Service was pretty good and they treated our daughters very well.

Had not been here in 50 years since moving from Chicago. It was every bit as good as I remembered it. Filet and lamb chops were the best. Loved the tiramisu and spumoni for dessert.

Steaks were excellent but sides left little to be desired. Creamed spinach was more cream then spinach and mashed potatoes were fine. Just not a lot of options for a high end restaurant.

We took visiting family for dinner. They have a particular love of great steaks. And they were not disappointed! The dessert selection was fabulous, but should share as the main courses are huge! Side dishes are to be shared family style. Nice to be taken care by professional wait staff!

Tomahawk and NY Sirloin not as great as I recalled from several previous visits. Still good but at those prices you expect great
