When I made the reservation, I requested a corner table or booth; however, I was seated with another couple, at a joining table. I went to the front and spoke to the host, and he moved us. I didn’t get his name, but thank you.

Food was excellent, and Tim, our waiter was great. Overall experience was an 8.

We came from Florida to show our sons colleges and we were recommended this place for dinner by friends. It was really nice, great cocktails, food, service. A classic American steakhouse. Oysters were also really good. Congrats

Amazing restaurant, we loved the atmosphere, the bar has an amazing whisky selection, even with top Japanese blends. Dry aged meat is top notch and the wine list probably the best you can find in Boston.

Meal was just ok. Bread was cold My filet was bland but my husband enjoyed his Kobe Steak. Salad and sides were just ok. Dessert was very disappointing. Ordered a chocolate martini that came with a layer of ice at the top that should have been strained. For $22 a drink I couldn’t believe the quality of it. I was very underwhelmed with the whole meal. Service was ok. We felt bad our waiter seemed stressed. He did the best he could. For that kind of money for a meal I expect to be wowed. I wouldn’t go back.

It was too cold at the restaurant the A/C was freezing the tables close to the windows and they insistent try to keep you in this Bar Area instead of the restaurant that was empty but warmer. The food was good but you have to it very fast because it was very uncomfortable due the low temperature.
It is a pity they ruin a good dining experience

Hi there, I am sorry you felt uncomfortable due to the temperature. We do have only open certain parts of the restaurant during the day. Were you joining us before 5pm on Saturday? I'm glad you enjoyed the food. Best, Allison

Rolls were too hard. Almost broke a took. Almost impossible to tear apart. Waiter barely came by,we had to ask manager for help. Sound level seemed higher than normal. Small amount of mashed potatoes with meat loafs. We have been coming every year for 10-15 years. I question if we will ever visit again.
The food and service we received for $450 was not a value. Robert Wilson
