My experience was very mixed. I flew into Cincinnati from Washington D.C. to celebrate a friend's birthday. I have always wanted to try it so I made a reservation. Everyone was welcoming and the ambiance was great as well. Upon returning to Washington D.C. I had noticed on my banking account that i was charged a different amount than I signed for, I had also left a cash tip. I am awaiting a call from a Manager to retfiy the matter.

The food arrived Luke warm and the service was very slow. We were there for two hours and we were practically tackling our waitress to hurry things along, on the rare occasion we saw her.

Girlfriend dinner ok. Bread plates taken and not replaced when bread finally came out after appetizer. My dinner beef medallions add lobster tail. 4 pieces of beef (Half of my gf 6 oz fillet size total) ordered medium got one of each: med/rare, med, med/well, well done. Lobster tail the size of a crawfish tail. Know of other restaurants I will frequent with better quality of food and service for roughly the same price.

The entire staff was friendly, pleasant and professional from the hostesses to the wait staff to the manager. The food was very good. The lighting was a bit dim. We are young hearted senior citizens and had difficulty seeing the menu due to the low lighting. Overall our experience was remarkable.
