    I love medium rare! They took a single concept and created a delicious meal. When you go to medium rare, you know you will be served a fresh salad, a delicious cut of meat, a secret bernaise sauce and crispy thin fries. Steak frites is a Parisian staple, and this restaurant captures it well. The service is always excellent, and if you enjoy a good steak, it is a perfect outing. if you are a vegetarian, they have portobello mushroom caps for you, and you will feel as if you are a guest in their home. I highly recommend it!

    No I do not recommend. Steak was ok but nothing to write home about. This was my first and last time here. Everything could have been better other than the service and the ambiance those two things were great!

    I think this place has potential, but unfortunately we dined on Mother's Day. The wait staff and the kitchen could simply not keep up. I will say that our waiter was very polite and apologetic, which was appreciated. I noticed that there were a lot of 'to-go' orders being prepped and picked up [by 3rd party deliver drivers], which likely made the problem worse. If you can't keep up with orders for your in-house guests, why would you take to-go orders? And don't seat additional walk-in guests if you can't keep up. We saw several groups leave in frustration before the second flight of food. The steak was good, but my first serving came out almost cold. I would also recommend getting the gravy on the side. I typically like condiments with my steak but the gravy didn't do it for me. The portabella mushroom was great! Drink selections were fine, but I'd recommend adding some more red wine options given the only entree is steak. The cocktails were very good. Desserts were good (apple pie, hot fudge sundae), but I'd suggest more ice cream and less whipped cream in the sundae. We weren't in a hurry so I was OK with a 2 hour meal, but I figured their business model was more about a faster guest cycle given the simple menu. It was nice that we could draw on the table 'cloth' to keep ourselves busy while waiting. I don't know that I'd try it again unless I was going solo in the future to see if they've improved their pace.

    Waited 2hrs to be seated even though we had reservations. Food was horrible. Overbooked and understaffed. The worst Mother’s Day brunch ever!! Not worth it.

    Reservation was for 12:45 arrived at 12:38 seated at 1:10 pm. Bread wasn’t served until 1:30. It was stale. Mimosas claimed to be bottomless but my refills were never to be found. Our food didn’t reach the table until 2:20. It was ice cold. The steak was dry and the fries were not palpable. 35$ for a small selection of food choices and portion sizes were tiny. Definitely will not be returning and your money is well spent else where.
