My friend and I got to restaurant early to have a drink at the bar. I ordered a dirty martini with blue cheese olives. I am a little bit picky on my martini but this one was perfect the first time. To me that was a beginning of a great evening.

Once seated in main dining room we ordered from the restaurant week menu. I started out with the wedge salad which was again perfect. I then had a double pork chop medium. It came out with an apricot jam mixed with a hint of horseradish. I originally thought it was apple sauce until I tasted it. This sauce was fantastic! I then ordered the mashed potatoes which was plenty to share. My friend had the 8oz NY Strip med rare. It too was very good along with cream spinach. Again plenty to share. We were very full so we had the desserts boxed up. I ordered the key lime pie and she ordered the cheese cake. We gave the cheesecake away to our concierge so I can’t say how it was but the key lime was fantastic.

I didn’t do my homework so didn’t know restaurant was in Landry’s family but our waitress asked if i was a member of the select club. I was, so that came in handy as I got twenty five dollars off the meal. Added bonus that I turned around and tipped our waitress the twenty five.

All in all a great place to eat and drink. Nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people whom appreciate this type of restaurant.

Two thumbs up👍🏻👍🏻

One of the best steaks I've ever had. Everything was so delicious. Our only issue is that we had to remind our waiter a few times about a couple things he had forgotten. Other than that, it was top notch. Cannot wait to return.

Our experience was great. I had reserved a table on open table and put it was for a birthday celebration and had even put my significant others name. When we arrived they told her happy birthday using her name and took us to our table. The table happy menus that said “Happy birthday” at the top with her name as well making it a very personalized dinner. Food was amazing and not overly expensive for the ambiance. Waiter was quick and extremely nice

We came in for Restaurant week. The service was very slow. One member of our party was served her cocktail 10 minutes after the rest of us. I understand what is going on with the service industry however the basics at a high end restaurant should still be followed.
We were never offered pepper for our salads. Once the entrees were served we had to flag down the waiter for Parmesan cheese for our scampi, which took 10 minutes to arrive at the table. The waiter never checked with us to see if our steaks were cooked properly. The steaks were cooked properly and were delicious but the scampi were over cooked.
I will say that one member of our party was very particular in her order and the waiter/ kitchen got it all correct. Overall the food was very good, except for the scampi.
By the way, the dining chairs are uncomfortable and there were diners that brought very young children to dinner after 8pm who were screeching and the staff did nothing. I know it’s a difficult situation but other diners at a high end restaurant do not appreciate that.

None of the Steaks were cooked to requested temperature. Terrible cuts of meat. Awful services, and to top it off - Cold turkey. I took a client here for a nice dinner/meeting, and felt like I threw $2300 on fire. Never going back.

Great food and service. Steak and sides were excellent. Was seated with our back to the kitchen which I didn’t care for too much, only because I kept thinking something might fall my way from waiters hands but I loved the booth size. It’s a very sexy place, dim lighting, close to JW Marriott. We drove but we could have walked. Cocktails were really good as well.

We had an 8pm reservation and we’re not seated until 8:45. We waited in the bar. Each course took forever. It took 20 minutes for a crab appetizer and salad to come out. After waiting 35 minutes, my medium rare steak was well done and actually burned and hard on one entire side. The pork chop was under cooked and chewy. A slice of cheesecake took 15 minutes to arrive. Our server was lovely and we tipped her 20 percent because we didn’t want to penalize her for a ridiculously slow kitchen. We will not be back. We had an amazing meal three days prior at Vic n Anthony’s and an equally amazing meal the prior week at the galleria location.
