Overall a very good experience. The food was delicious except for the prime rib. No red at all and tasted more like a roast than prime rib. It took forever to get the main courses. Desserts were to die for!

The food was prepared very nicely. We had the dinner for two. We shared an appetizer and each of us got our own salad and entrée and then split a dessert. The carrot cake dessert was one of the best carrot cakes I’ve ever had.

Will be going back soon.

Made reservations online for 6:45 Friday and got right in. Reception staff was great. Waiter was there right away to take drink order. Waiter got our orders quickly. Salads were timely and fresh. Main course took awhile to get get to the table but everyone got what they ordered, and everyone enjoyed the meal.

My daughter ordered the cilantro lime rice but something was definitely off. The waiter quickly retrieved some fries for her so she was happy. We did end up telling the manager that it was not cilantro lime rice and that it had a fennel (black licorice) taste. He said he would go to the kitchen and taste it right away so hopefully that got fixed before anyone else ordered it. Everything else was great!

For the price, you can get a much better steak at other nearby restaurants. The service was slow. Upon entering the restaurant, the host was very unpleasant and rude. I put my hand on the host stand and he snapped at me “Don’t put your hands up here”. Two meals and a few cocktails, $120 later, it wasn’t worth the trip. We won’t be back.

This is not a quiet steakhouse. A television directly above you doesn't lend itself to conversation. If you are looking for a bar type atmosphere to watch the game, this would be a good choice. If you are looking for a more subdued meal where you can talk, this isn't it.

Enjoyed eating in the bar, Royals on TV. Four course dinner for two, $80 is an excellent value. Prime rib was tender, flavorful and perfectly prepared. Wednesday’s special is half price wine by the glass, which we took advantage of. Great evening for our first dinner out in over a year.

My salmon tasted fishy and that's not good. The staff was more than glad to take it back and asked to replace it with something else , which was kind. The manager then came over and I in error misspoke and said "I had a shellfish allergy" but before I could finish my sentence (which would have been this causes me to have a sensitive palate.), the manager jumped all over me "Why didn't you tell us! Did you tell US? Don't you realize what that can do to us?" I told her no Then she turned and walked off. As a little TV character would say: "How rude!"
Now to my hubbys filet: aged yes and left out to age into the next century. Not tasty considering he paid extra to get the filet and crab and mushrooms. Strikes are adding up!
Carrot cake is the best!
