I just want to start by saying the food was amazing - really top notch, everything tasted excellent, especially the Tartare. The hosts were also super friendly and we felt welcome on arrival. Ambiance 10/10. Unfortunately the service was not to the same caliber. It may have just been a bad night but our server was inattentive and made mistakes that I would not have expected at a restaurant like this.

My dining companion had an empty drink for 15 minutes, and when our server finally passed by and she tried to order her drink, he cut her off and said he had to pour wine for the larger table next to us - it came across incredibly rude and the entire night I just sensed that he didn't care much for us. I'm not sure if it was our age (we are in our 20s) or he was just having an off night but I don't feel like we were getting the same attention or treatment as other tables around us - larger parties or older diners who look like they have more $$$$ to shell out on a meal, but looks can be deceiving! Our dinner took 3 hours, but could have been shorter if we had been checked on at more regular intervals. There were times where we needed something but instead of checking on us, the staff was chitchatting in the corner.

To top things off our server came by and snagged our signed checks while we were finishing our last drinks. It wasn't like he was trying to get out of there because he still had multiple other tables. I found this incredibly rude and it put a bad taste in my mouth. I spent 6 years in food and bev and feel like I overtipped for this experience, but I would come back for the food.

We came here on our anniversary trip four our special dinner of the week. The steakhouse called me around noon to confirm our reservation time and also to gain more information about my allergies so they can accommodate. I thought this was a wonderful act of customer service.
The building, set up, and staff were all extraordinary. I cannot say enough about this. The food was also excellent with one glaring exception. My husband and I both ordered the smaller filet in medium well. Same steak, same temp. When we received our food, his was much thicker and mine a thin strip. Mine was so well done the char on the outside was scraping the roof of my mouth. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. His steak was closer to a true medium well, even being slightly under. He graciously ended up switching with me so we could both eat our food.
For a steakhouse, and an upscale one at that, I felt I received a worse serving of steak than at my local $12 steakhouse at home.

Covid safety was lacking.

Bartender frequently had her mask down, GC had mask down in the kitchen area, and patrons were allowed to walk in and out (past tables) without masks on.

Food was great, but I wouldn't return until Covid were no longer a concern.

Wonderful server and staff. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I think they could step up the atmosphere / ambience with a few updates to their traditional decor.
