We went on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was fairly quiet. Food lacked flavor, bermaise sauce was bland and subpar but the steaks were cooked perfectly (needed seasoning). For the prices, the overall experience should be more special. We went to a chain steak place with similar prices a few weeks ago and it just felt more like a fancy night out (and food was significantly better). Staff was also overheard dealing with disgruntled customer saying they had no manager? We won’t be back.

The scores would have been higher. Like most businesses they seem short staffed. The staff tried very hard and were hustling but service was a bit “off”. I’ll continue coming though.

Yesterday was my husbands birthday. We were able to pick where we wanted to sit because the restaurant wasn't crowded. The food was excellent. Would recommend it to others.

We had a nice evening out but dinner was fair. We sat outside which is a lovely large space. The server was kind. Our salads were fine and the steak dinners were ok for it being a steak restaurant, nothing exciting. I ordered bernaise sauce and it was a terrible old glob. Our side of asparagus was not fresh at all and unedible due to it being too strawlike.

The ambiance and service made it an enjoyable evening though so overall it was nice.

Sat for 25 minutes and no one took even a drink order. Manager finally came over and had a condescending attitude. We walked out and went somewhere else. I will never go back.

We were very disappointed. The service was very slow. Personally for the price of the steak I think it should include the sauce. Adjust your prices you look cheap charging extra for it. And it was insulting.

then there was a uncharge on my filet because of whatever. I found that to be unacceptable also. After all the charge on the menu was $36 and that would make it $41 for the 8 oz. steak.

Then the food came out in the original plate it was baked in all dirty from the cooking and it was so hot I could not touch it. While I waited the food continued to cook. so instead of a medium steak it became well done. Disappointing at best, and for the price, terrible!

We were very upset because the waiter spent no time with us at all, all he wanted was order and get your food. We felt so bad that I tipped him only 10% hoping that he would notice it and think about his service or lack of it. Everything took so long.

I would never go back again. there are better steakhouses in Danbury than this one.

MIX Prime can be counted on to provide a mixed-bag dining experience & not thrill your grilled meat-carnivore desires. Maybe if you like your meat well done perhaps. The dining room & bar area could also use a facelift.
As many have similarly posted, MIX over cooks their steak; they start them on a flat top grill&finish in the oven. My steak, ordered medium rare came out medium - border-line medium well. Seasoning on the boneless rib eye was good though. My selection, chosen from the supposedly prime grade dry aged section of the menu did not deliver a prime dry-aged steak. You'll know if you are eating prime beef as its unparalleled texture & flavor is distinct from eating a grocery store wet aged 'choice' grade steak.
My date had the fresh seared halibut special - a beautiful piece of fish over a vegetable risotto. The fish was slightly over cooked & devoid of any seasoning of salt. Pan Grilled fish needs to be salted. The pineapple sauce that came with it ( on the side ) was too sweet. Our 3 Canadian & 3 NYBluepoint oysters on the half shell were a mixed bag with the Canadian oysters delivering on freshness. Not so much the domestic Mollusks which were one day short of full on ripe. We opted for two salads, the beet, goat cheese & spring greens plate & it was perfectly dressed. My sliced tomatoes with blue cheese dressing was generous but lost major points on the very bland, excessively saucy & strangely 'cubed' blue cheese dressing.
Sub-par knife work on the red onions & the restaurant serving winter grade tomatoes took points away as well.
Thumbs up on the sides of mashed potatoes & sautéed mushrooms.
They also make a nice citron vodka martini.
We liked the very friendly service & bread basket.

My waiter Eton (sp) was amazing. Attentive but not hovering. Explained everything completely and while I wasn’t thrilled with the price hike in beef, it wasn’t his fault.
I don’t live here, but when I come again I won’t miss the opportunity to eat here.

When you order a $90 porterhouse you expect a $90 porterhouse. The filet portion was beautiful the other was raw and cold. Obviously asked to cook more but after having sat and a precut piece of meat it was inedible. Very disappointed

We went for Father’s Day and I wish we were seated inside because it was very hot and they didn’t have a system set up to control the temperature only a glass roof and stereo for music and shelter but the food was great !

Great steakhouse to have so local! It is your typical steakhouse prices, especially if you're coming for a good piece of steak. Sides are reasonably priced compared to other steakhouses of a similar caliber. We chose to sit outside for dinner to try the new patio setup, which if I had to choose again I'd probably opt for the inside just because we found it loud. I think they turn up the background music to try to distract from the noise of I84 running not too far behind it. The outside is decorated very nice, and I think I'd sit there again during the day more so at night.

Service was good and the food was outstanding. Our entrées were prepared as requested and was delicious. My wife has severe food allergies and our server did a great job making sure the food was cooked separately. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will be back again. Definitely recommended.

Porterhouse steak was over cooked and very fatty. Drinks were watered down. For the value it was not good. Won’t be going back again. Definitely not worth the money. Please go somewhere else. You’ll regret going here unfortunately…

The additional outdoor seating looks fabulous. It just happened that there was a private party there at the time. The fact that the door to the outdoor seating remained open to service the party, made our dining area uncomfortable as it was a very hot day. So while the circumstances were not ideal, on that particular type of weather I would prefer not be there during a a private party. On a cooler day, it would not be a problem.

Ordered an ap and dinner, both came at the same time. Waitress apologized but did not tell management as I stead of comping the ap we could not eat she gave me a free glass of wine. I am sure she put both orders in to the kitchen at the same tine. Noise level outside is high being next to the interstate. Food was good.

We came in for a date night and it was less than outstanding. We sat for quite a while before being served and then the food was very slow once the order was taken. When the food came out it was good but not anything special. When our steaks dropped it took so long to get sauces and sides they were already going cold. Also my wife’s steak was not cooked correctly. While any one of these can happen on a typical night out. The combination of issues and apathy the staff showed towards it really was a turn off on this place.

Our guest ordered bone in sirloin medium and my husband ordered the lamb porterhouse dish medium rare. Both came overdone....the waiter came by to ask how they were done and my husband told him the chops were overdone...his response was "I have no control over that...what do you want to do". We were so shocked! The norm (especially for an upscale steakhouse) is to just rectify the situation. "What do you want me to do, you can eat it or I can request a new order". is just inexcusable. Shocking....WILL NOT GO BACK

Food was good, not great... service was awful! Our server never checked in on us, and every time he stopped at the table he would say “I’ll be right back” and we wouldn’t hear from him for 30 minutes. Reservation was at 5pm... we didn’t get our drinks until 5:36 and didn’t even have the opportunity to put the appetizer in until 5:57. We paid 60 dollars for a steak that came out over cooked, and when we mentioned it to the waiter he said “well if you want a new one it’s gonna be a while”. I loved the ambiance and it is a nice place, but I wouldnt recommend you go unless you have 3 hours to eat, most of it being spent sitting and waiting! There’s much better places on mill plain road for cheaper prices, better food, and better service!

Went for a mother’s day dinner. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Our server was very friendly but it was hard to hear him through the mask over the loud music. It was a little busy, service was slow during second drinks/dessert time. Otherwise an overall good experience. Side note: the top of the salmon was crispy and very tasty, the skin side was not crispy at all and separated from the salmon.
