    It truly was a wonderful night! Our server Taylor was a five star server. Our food was tasty and flavorful! My steak was cooked perfectly. The ambiance was awesome as well. I must say I found it a touch on the expensive side. Otherwise, I would go back and I would recommend it!

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday and Mother’s Day and our server was fantastic (Sean, or John?) It was the first time for our daughter there and the food and drinks didn’t disappoint. We’d go again on a special occasion because it’s pricey.

    Similar prices as Fleming’s in Raleigh. Comparable service and quality of meal also. Only negative is the 2 person table size. Not quite large enough to hold a full dinner set of dishes. Very uncomfortable trying to squeeze everything onto such a small table.

    We went to eat here for our wedding anniversary. I ordered the 3 filet medallions medium well. The first one was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I thought the other two would be prepared perfectly as well. I was wrong. The other 2 were barely cooked medium rare. One was cooked more rare than medium rare. Both of which is a far cry from medium well. I thought such an egregious mistake would warrant a visit from the manager. Again, I was wrong. The waiter, Andrew, gave his apologies. The wait staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. Although the caviar was quite good, I was very disappointed with the meal. When you take into consideration the ambiance of the establishment, the charges on the menu and the professionalism of the staff, I expected quite a bit more from the food.
