    Terrific drinks, our server Maya was amazing, the food was a let down. If I am going to be charged nearly $70 for a steak then it had better be good. Not tough and chewy

    It was overall great! The music could be a little louder for the crowd to enjoy. The music was faint especially with the amount of people speaking loudly over each other. We all enjoyed ourselves the drinks great, everyone was welcoming and engaging

    Had pleasant experiences in the past, and the food is always good, BUT this last visit was BEYOND TERRIBLE! We didn't have a server assigned to us. If we did, he didn't know. Someone else took our order and then that was it. Never heard from anyone until I walked to the host stand 45 MINUTES after we sat down, and asked for a server. After I complained, a runner speedily ran our food around the corner. A manager (I think) took 10 seconds to briefly apologize. The supposed assigned server came by and just filled our water, not saying a word; not addressing the elephant in the room. He did not say his name, did not apologize. NOTHING. He did not ask if we needed anything. I had to flag him down for the check. Upon receiving the check, there was no comp, no discount, no offer for a free round or dessert. Very unpleasant and disappointing experience, not to mention the manager never stopped by again! Hard to recommend or visit again.
