    We feel like we are regulars at this restaurant. However, we went 45 minutes before we ever even received our appetizer. it seemed like they were super busy which, honestly we honestly do not mind, but no one informed us of that until after we were there for close to an hour, and it was the person refilling our water that let us know they were busy… Not our server or anyone else.

    Above expectations. Food preparation was perfect as was the presentation. Service was always available without hovering over our table. Of particular note was the initiative taken to track us down, using the cell number in the reservation, to set up the return of a cell phone that had fallen under the table. This was all done at closing and the manager was available to return the phone an hour after the restaurant's closing time.

    We had a large party so they gave us a very nice private room. Staff did a awesome job. Food was great overall but not amazing. Pretty pricey though, expect $150 per head before alcohol. Ambiance was great!

    Great place to try some amazing steaks! Japanese Wagyu topped all of them - this steak alone was worth the visit. The appetizers were great too, and we especially liked tuna tartare. No complaints about the service or the wait time - everyone was extremely polite and did their job well, and it never took long to wait for food, even on the busiest night of the New Year's Eve. We will definitely be coming back!

    The food and service were excellent. Our dinner experience was good except for the parking validation. The front desk asked us if we had any parking ticket when we checked in, and she validated our parking ticket before sitting us in. However, when we left the parking, we had to pay a $12 something parking fee. It had never happened before.

    In the main restaurant for dinner, excellent starters and cocktails. Half the party ordered Wagyu steaks and enjoyed them (tho' one arrived a little more cooked than ordered/expected). Sea Bass and Sesame Cauliflower Steak dishes disappointed, drowned when the staff suddenly and without asking poured the entire contents of the jus onto both. Dishes were rendered a near inedible, soupy mess. For something other than steak, the Roasted Jidori Chicken and King Salmon dishes are both excellent. (Also excellent: the Tableside Chateaubriand.) We'll stick to the steaks, which are the best in town.

    Anniversary dinner. Service was top notch, but my Australian wagyu ribeye steak was not cooked very evenly. Well done ended up being red, not pink, and pretty raw in the middle.

    John Howie SteakResponded on January 13, 2023Thank you for the feedback. I hope you had an opportunity to speak with a manager that evening. We strive to fix any issue in the moment.

    My steak was over cooked. After a long wait for my steak, and no one even stopped by and asked how’s my food, I didn’t bother to have them redo. Server was too busy I guess. Long wait for foods and not much service throughout the night.

    For its reputation, the was nothing special about the restaurant. Our meal was more than leisurely. Forty minutes from when my soup was whisked away until the main course arrived. I wasn’t finished my soup. I figured the steaks were on their way. No. Presentation was dull. The steak was barren on its oversized plate. The service was professional but not warm or welcoming. It was a disappointment. Steakhouses with lesser reputations have left us more satisfied.

    Food was good, as expected, especially for the price. Service was very slow. We had to wait 1.5 hours between when the salad was cleared and when the entrees were served. The dinner took a total of four hours. The flow of this dinner was completely off and a poor reflection for our business clients. Certainly won’t book another business dinner here.

    John Howie SteakResponded on December 28, 2022Hello, Thank you for another review from this party. I spoke with Ron Bryman the CSO of the company a couple weeks ago. We discussed the evening in detail and I have concluded the proper follow up with your service team and the kitchen. Your feedback has been used as a learning tool for the staff. Again, thank you and Happy New Year! Best, Tim L.

    The food was phenomenal, our server was fantastic, but the wait time when you have a reservation is ridiculous. It took them 40 minutes after our reservation to seat us and then an extra hour and a half to get food after we ordered. I understand being busy and having a semi-large group, but for the prices and the 20% service fee tacked on, it shouldn’t have been a 3.5 hour deal altogether with a lot of wait time

    We had a date night and as an older couple dressed for the occasion. Restaurant too noisy, seating was like a big cafeteria. We were seated in the area which was like the holding room for large crowds? Couldn't even hear each other! Food was good but not great. Will not go back, too expensive, not worth it.

    The swordfish with risotto tasted and looked muddy. There was nothing fresh on the plate. A broth with a congealed fat skin was poured over the risotto. This made the risotto watery and unappealing. The meal was very expensive and not worth the price.

    I really had a wonderful time and great memories in this time!!!!!! I went there with my husband for celebrating our 2nd anniversary. This was the first time for both of us to visit this restaurant. When we checked in at the front desk, a staff asked us about the validation for parking. We were impressed with the notification since we sometimes forgot to get a validation after we were done a dinner. And then we got a table in about 5 min after checked in. Our server was Ryan. He was very friendly and very knowledgeable. When we asked him what is the deference between 2 kind of steak, he answered correctly and very kindly. We loved his advises!!! He often checked our table. We were very impressed with his caring service all the time!!! Actually he also asked about a validation when we ordered. That was also part of excellent service !!!!! He was always kind and friendly and caring. My husband and I had a great time!!!!!! We definitely highly recommend this restaurant especially for anniversary or some special occasion. And we will definitely go back there soon!!!!!!! Thank you very much Ryan!!!!
