    We had a great server. I cannot remember his name, but he had his arm in a sling so you’ll know who that is. Very good service and food. Will definitely come there again. The brussels sprouts were magnificent.

    I've only been here twice but both times it was fantastic! My steak is always cooked to perfection and the sides are wonderful. Also enjoyed half price appetizers and wine since it was Monday. Service was efficient and our waitress was very helpful without coming by too much. Highly recommend!!

    Made an appt and was a couple minutes late. They do not hold your reservation FYI. They were still able to fine us a table. We waited 5-10 min and was seated. The server we had was Taylor I believe and he was great. Drinks and food came out really quick considering there were a few larger groups that were ordering the same time we were. Would have never guessed it if they were busy. Only con would be too much juice in the mimosa carafe. I a person you likes more booze than juice in mine 😁. I was only in town for work, so it was a great option if you want a nice place to go with coworkers.

    We went to dinner with friends (their suggestion). It was ok. We have been multiple times and we have never thought it was as great as everyone else thinks it is. First, I hate carpet in restaurants. There is also an odd odor at the entrance and it appears unkempt. Once when we were there for weekend brunch in the bar area, the floors and under the bar were filthy. I really just think it is an ok restaurant with a boring menu. Im not sure they could have burnt/overcooked the brussel sprouts any more than they did last night. We each had a salad with a protein add on. They were fine, nothing special. The last time I was there my medium rare steak came out medium well...

    I had the salmon berry salad and my husband the Delmonico steak. It was so delicious and cooked perfectly. And of course, I cannot help but mention the staff, especially Maeve and Tyler who made a great dining experience.

    One of the best high end restaurants we've experienced in Lincoln. The filet mignon and the salmon were both fantastic, perfectly cooked, beautifully seasoned. Loved our crab cakes appetizer. Service was excellent, not overly attentive. Advertised as 'business casual,' we dressed accordingly, but there were lots of patrons in shorts and flip flops which took away from the ambience. [However, super casual is pretty common in Lincoln, Nebraska.] Several small nitpicky concerns: At 7:30pm, they had already run out of their signature chocolate dessert; they had run out of wine glasses (had to use stemless glasses); and I prefer a real tableside wine bucket instead of those stone cylinders they say keep the wine cold (they don't).

    I have to say we’ve had more enjoyable experiences in the past. The food was good as always but the salad my wife ordered was ruined by the presence of a plastic lid in the bottom of the bowl covered by the lettuce. Probably not a health issue but the server-although apologetic-didn’t seem too concerned. Ambiance is getting a little too rough with the open cook line being too “back of house” in appearance. All in all we want good things for the restaurant so we’ll keep coming back.

    Our dinner was fine -- good wine, great service. Two of us looked for our favorite scallop dinner with pasta and it was GONE. One of those folks got the scallops and risotto which he said was OK, but not as good as the missing item. Another looked for the mashed potatoes that were offered as a side...GONE.

    we were seated in the middle of the restaurant (yes i could have asked for a different table) it was very cold and i noticed several people had sweaters but a young man brought us water but than our waitress came and told us he wasn't our waiter but hopefully he did do anything to offend us!! she took our drink order than our food order ,someone else brought our appetizer as well as our main course. my stead was great but she NEVER came back to check on us. we finally talked to her she apologized but she got the big table next to us, so i guess the big table trumps us. won't be back
