It was my first time here. I ordered the Cobb salad with shrimp and filet. The menu described heirloom tomatoes and they were cherry tomatoes. I live near farms so I know the difference. I eat heirloom all the time. The bacon in the salad was fatty and seemed uncooked. I was expecting toasted chunks. Our drink we ordered was an old fashioned. The bartender put no time into it at all and tasted like bourbon with a slice of orange and a cherry, no muddling at all. It just seemed very average to me and for a $40.00 salad I feel I was not asking to much for good tomatoes and bacon. The meat and the 3 shrimp that were in it were good, however the shrimp was very bland as well. Nice place to stay however, it looked like a beautiful hotel.

I am sorry that the cobb salad was not to your liking. Heirloom tomatoes do come in many variations and the ones we use for this dish are mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes. An Old Fashion doesn't have any muddling. Ours is made with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Maple syrup and orange maple bitters. I am pleased however that after you mentioned your dissatisfaction we did give you a discount. We hope you can join us again and try some of the other favorite dishes and drinks.

The food was very good. Loved the dumplings and branzino. The waygu steak was very chewy. The waiter was polite and good overall, but it looked that there was one waiter for the whole restaurant and several bus boys. Most ESL. Nice ambiance. The wine list was decent but little selection. Only six reds.

This place is not cheap, and it is in the Garden City Hotel. I do wish that they would have a dress code. I saw three clowns at two different tables, dressed in Hawaiin Shirts and shorts. Shorts?

Thank you for your feedback. Regrettably we are experiencing the very same staffing challenge that most employers are struggling with across the country which is a low volume of people seeking to return to the workforce. The apparent effect of the enhanced unemployment benefits still in place. Rest assured that we are making every effort to overcome these challenges in order to provide you with a memorable experience.

We were looking forward to this upscale dinner with friends. Started out on a great note with good cocktails and salad and the maple candied bacon was amazing! But the steaks we had were very disappointing. We had wagyu and sirloins. They were not very tender and mine had a vein through it. This should not be the case in a restaurant that charges $68 for a ribeye! Dessert was not memorable. So to be honest even though a beautiful space, I don't be think we will be returning.

The waiter was attentive initially but then disappeared. Out appetizers came out relatively quickly but the main course took much longer and the steak was raw. It had to be sent back. I ordered the chocolate sphere cake for dessert and it was so repulsive I sent it back and didn’t want anything else. I would say it’s completely overpriced and mediocre.

We started at patio bar where Jose made us the most refreshing cocktails. Great comfortable atmosphere out there but we decided to head into king bar where the famous Brian made us our favorite cocktails, the cucumber south side and the maple bourbon old fashioned. His hospitality skills are off the charts. We sat down for dinner and had such an incredible experience! Mary Francis is a top notch server and recommend such great options for every part of our meal. She was kind, friendly and over exceeded our expectations. The manager Brittney stopped by and was such a pleasure to take to. I can’t wait for my next experience here!

Thank you! Not only do we hand pick our steaks, but Chef Burke owns the patent for the unique process in which he uses pink Himalayan salt to dry age his steaks. As you experienced, the result is an unbelievably tender and mouth watering piece of beef. We hope to see you back soon!
