                        Went here again today after such a great first experience yesterday. Unfortunately, the service was lacking and the drink had absolutely no garnish in the spicy bloody mary

                        Always have a great experience here but last time our bartender Malcolm, was exceptional! The yellowtail sushi was divine and the grilled Bronzino was perfection. Love the vibes at LT. Def one of my go-to places for a great meal.

                        Very good for steak and high end appetizers and cocktails. The waygu beef steak and dishes are highly recommended. Some of the sides are a bit hit or miss. Personally, I wasn't a huge fan of the truffled Mac with huge rigatoni pasta as the base. But overall one of the best in the area.

                        This was the first experience at LT for me and my husband. We were impressed by the popovers, skirt steak, prawns, and cauliflower--all were delicious, plated pleasantly, and amply portioned. The ambience was a modern and energetic with a full view of the kitchen, which was interesting to watch. The service was attentive without being intrusive--just how we like it. We'll be going back.

                        It’s one of my favorite local spots because I like the ambience and decor. The food since the opening has gotten much better specially, the sushi, which is now my go to choice. LT has a diverse menu of food and drinks both solid. The filet is very well prepared and flavorful and are the fish choices. Overall, I recommend it and I will continue going. The area for improvement is the service, as this needs to match the quality of the place.

                        We were there 5/15/2022 @ 12:30 pm Sunday brunch. We are there once a month. Sunday brunch was very noisy!!!! Like a club scene at 12:30 pm inappropriate. Very loud. Very bad and damaging to the eardrums!!!! Sunday Brunch is suppose to be sedate/ harmonious . We have to scream/ talk loud to talk to each other. We had ask to the manager to ask the DJ to lower the volume they told us that , that’s what the management wanted loud and noisy.🙄 We eventually ask to move to the patio. And then later on… they blasted the speaker outside too! Other costumers said it was loud too, but they were not outspoken enough to say something.

                        Being told while being seated that we had 1 hour and 45 minutes to dine was a huge turn off. It actually added stress to the experience. I suggest notifying customers in a different manner - or not at all. We finished our appetizer before our drinks came. Then the waitress suggested that perhaps we should order our second round prior to the drinks arriving when we questioned what was taking so long with the first round of drinks. For an establishment of this caliber- or attempting to be of this caliber - at Riverside Square this was completely poor form.

                        Excellent food somewhat limited menu. Prices were on the high exude especially for the side dishes.

                        I had the Brick Chicken at LT soon after the restaurant opened and enjoyed it a lot. But today the presentation was completely different. Just a slab of badly cooked chicken on a bare plate. For $28 dollars. Disappointed. All sides extra

                        Really disappointing for 8 years anniversary dinner. Half the porterhouse was dry. I asked for medium. We ate the half that was actually medium. We didn’t feel like asking for it to get fixed because we didn’t want to wait around on a new one and we don’t really like complaining. Plus, for that price, you’d think they would get it right the first time. The mushroom was ok. The bread was the best part about the meal and that was free. Definitely not coming back. I think I’m being generous with 3 stars. It took 15 min for someone to even greet us for water and when my husband got the hostess, she had to tell the waiter to come to us. The 3 stars was because the waiter at least was consistent after that start.

                        Fabulously curated food with great flavor. Went for brunch on Easter. 4 people had grilled octopus, assorted sushi, filet mignon, strip steak, hamburger and avocado toast. Everything was delicious. Staff was super attentive for a holiday and very sweet and accommodating. One note, know your clientelle. Save the speech about time limits for folks under 30. Or at least recind after we put in our order. Very tacky.

                        Really disappointed with service and food. Felt as if the cook poured out the salt shaker on our meals. Took 30 minutes for a waiter to bring us water and take out order. Just not a good experience won’t go back.

                        Food was average. Ambiance looks nice but they play club music during dinner it’s odd. They also make sure to tell you you only have 90 minutes to eat as they are seating you since “weekends are busy”. It was almost funny as 90 minutes later they had a bunch of open tables…most likely due to the average food.

                        The food was good however it’s unfair that we reserve space and they tell us only 90 minutes are allowed to dine in due to its busy on Friday’s and Saturdays if I’m spending money at your business what does it matter the time spent. The waiter came by at least 4 times to tell us it’s busy and the table was needed which was very upsetting. We wanted to get a few more drinks before our 90 minutes were up but then we felt so rushed so we paid the bill and left. Don’t think I’ll be going there again even though it’s a nice place.

                        The star here is definitely the food and you are going to have "pop overs" on your mind for days. The overall creativity, presentation and taste of all of the food here is excellent. Very creative cocktail menu and a solid wine selection that isn't budget breaking. Comfortable atmosphere makes it easy to talk with fellow guests. Definitely intend to come here again in the near future!

                        Our porterhouse for 2 was ordered medium rare. When served, it was well done. We returned it politely and the manager ? Came back to us and told us it was normal for the steak to be served that way. I have dined in many world class steakhouses and never had someone argue with me regarding a dish. I’ve also never had to return a steak at a restaurant who primarily served steaks! We received a new steak which was served raw. It was appalling any chef would serve such a dish. We packed up the steak and went home. Waiter was decent, rest of meal was fine.

The swordfish with the curry lemongrass sauce was amazing and the broccolini was cooked to perfection. Our server was very attentive and made our experience perfect!

                        We ordered our drinks and it literally took 30 minutes for the bar to send over a glass of wine and a martini. I find it unexcusable to actually have the appetizers arrive and the cocktails still have not. Spoke to the server and he was doing his best but unfortunately the bar was causing problems for him. Where is the manager? Why is the bar a bottleneck? Luckily the drinks arrived briefly before the entrees. I feel bad that the server has to cover for the bar manager and the groups inability to service customers in a timely fashion. Now this is not our first time experiencing such a delay we were in two weeks prior and had a similar experience. If it was a one off I would not write this, everyplace experiences difficulty at times but two in a row. That is no accident.
