    Not great first experience. We walked in to a gentleman that had a straight not so friendly welcoming face. We sat under the air conditioner and had to ask three times to either shut it off or move our table… they would shut it off and it comes on a again. Very cold and uncomfortable to where we couldn’t order dessert because we just wanted to leave. The steaks were disappointing. They were cooked great on the inside but burned on the outside to where we couldn’t chew it. We drove far to try this place but unfortunately can not recommend it. It was my husbands birthday and I had mentioned it when I booked the reservation and they didn’t even acknowledge:

    A neighborhood spot that aspires to be a high-end steakhouse, Let's Meat fails to get there in any way other than price. The oysters were miniscule; we noted it to our server who ignored us. This became a theme. Despite having all the tables around us, we constantly had to signal to get his attention. We decided against dessert after he dropped the menus and never came back. We had to flag a busboy down to get the check. The food varied widely. The steak and lamb chops were excellent, yet both were lukewarm. The gnocchi was closer to cold than to lukewarm. Truffle fries were good but nothing special. Drinks were excellent but our server again did not ask us if we wanted refills. There are strange touches here - you have to ask for salt and bread. My family loves steakhouses; we were excited to give this place a try but overall, it was a disappointment. The prices are pretty high yet the service, food and ambience don't match them.

    Great applies n sides. Our steak wasn’t treated with love. Was a nice cut. But came out rare (ordered MR) and actually cold enough not to melt the truffle butter. DONT get the truffle butter it overpowered a good steak. Good bourbon drinks.

    We’ve been there before and it was great. Went lastnight on a quiet Tuesday night- was only 1 Or 2 Other tables and it took over an hour to receive our food. I was told it was because I asked for my steak medium well. Also the waiter gave us sparkling water instead of water and charged us for both. Our meals were much better when we went two weeks ago on a very busy Saturday night

    While this restaurant is known for its steak and one of our party did order the filet, the others enjoyed fish - the branzino special and the crispy salmon. The meals were well-prepared and nicely presented. The menu had a variety of options including a burger and some Italian dishes.

    The last time we ate here it was flawless. Not the case this time. I ordered the NY Strip steak - medium and my boyfriend ordered the rib eye medium rare. My steak was too well done so I sent it back. Unfortunately I was left waiting for a new steak for almost 30 minutes. This threw off the entire meal. Our mashed potatoes got cold. The owner came over to the table to apologize and then I received my “new” steak and a fresh order of masked potatoes. This steak was perfect. Unfortunately we didn’t get to eat at the same time and his steak got cold waiting for mine to come. To add insult to injury, our table was directly under an AC Vent so we were cold. When it came time for dessert which is my favorite part of the meal , the waiter said it was on the house. We each ordered a dessert and I ordered cappuccino and little did we know, when we got the check, the only thing on the house was my dessert - we were charged for a dessert and the cappuccino. At the prices they charge at this establishment this was an unacceptable experience and should have been handled better than this

    Steak was flavorless, appetizers were ok, the 2 owner/managers spoke to us like we had never seen a menu before, thankfully the waiter was very nice, dessert was insanely sweet and was reminiscent of something you would get at a Mrs. Fields or a kids birthday party. But still the bill was close to $400 for 2 people…

    Went for a birthday dinner and it was nice. The appetizers were quite tasty: bacon, Brussels, cauliflower, calamari. Steaks were good though one needed to be sent back for being overdone but they were very accommodating. Desserts were delicious as were drinks.

    Food was really good, waiter was excellent. We were seated at the last table under a vent and it was really hot and blowing HOT air when we arrived. Then they turned off the Heat and turned on the A/C and it was blowing Cold air. So COLD that that we left without coffee or dessert. If we get a different table or you get the climate control fixed, we will be back.

    We went for Valentine’s Day, and sat in the outside enclosed patio, the heaters kept us warm on one of the coldest days so far. It was also very nicely decorated. Gabe our waiter was terrific, attentive from the beginning, which made us feel very comfortable. The food was so good!! We had baked clams, octopus, and Brussel sprouts as our appetizers, so well seasoned!! Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the sides were also prepared beautifully!! Drinks were pretty and good as well! Honestly no complaints, yes it was pricey but I don’t mind that on occasion, especially when the food is awesome! Thanks so much to Gabe and Let’s Meat for a great Valentines Day dinner with my husband and daughter!!
