A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.

    Always great food and exceptional service- dined upstairs for the first time- much quieter but just a little chilly- I think the use of the overhead heaters would have been appropriate- will always go back here

    Made a reservation for a Sunday brunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Started out with the oak fired heirloom carrots. They been highly recommended online, we weren't impressed and wouldn't get them again. For our entrees we enjoyed the crab cake benedict and the American, both were excellent. The only problem we experienced was where we were seated. In a restaurant that was maybe 1/3 full, we were seated right beside the entrance/exit to the kitchen. It was kinda noisy and constant back and forth of waiters/waitresses was annoying.

    Food was delicious, service was phenomenal. If seated on the terrace in the winter it can be a bit chilly and also feels removed from the main restaurant space-this can be a positive or a negative depending on personal preference. We ordered a bit of everything and each bite was excellent. Looking forward to eating here when we return and highly recommend it.

    Not the usual Repeal experience. Service was excellent. We were upstairs and outside so it was quiet. Food was just not that great. My steak wasn’t that good. Scallops were delish. Not impressed for the total cost.

    We had reservations for the terrace, and it had lovely ambience. The steaks were incredibly flavorful, definitely one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Our server was great, and had excellent recommendations as we were first time diners. I will definitely be back.

    We chose to sit and eat at the bar. The bartender was very pleasant and accommodating. The restaurant is gorgeous. The Prime Rib French dip was shared by us and not filled evenly on both halves with the meat, but was very delicious. It was served with plenty of Au Jus, horseradish and also a honey mustard which we enjoyed on both the sandwich and on the yummy steak fries, The 1/2 dozen oysters were good. One of mine was so tiny! Nonetheless we haven't had them in a while so we were glad they were on the menu. The restrooms are as classy as the restaurant. We decided it would be a nice place to bring visitors from out-of-town.

    We sat on the newly developed second floor and it was an outstanding experience. Our waiter was phenomal and the food the delicious and hot and high quality. I had the salmon dish and it was cooked to perfection - medium how it should be. Often times restaurants overcook salmon but theirs was perfect. It was less noisy on this second level which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Everything was very good, besides the steak we had ordered. They were cooked to perfection inside, but the outside was basically charred. I was going to ask if we could get it fixed but my wife’s was the same way as well as the table next too us so maybe the charred taste comes with the open flame grill? Either way we still ate the steaks but the charred taste really just takes takes away from the flavor of the steak to me. Other than that everything was a 10/10. Server Makayla ,I think,was outstanding. I would recommend going, just from our experience I would expect a charred/burnt taste on the outside of your steak. I would also like to add again we did not attempt to complain due to the assumption that’s just how they’re cooked, we could’ve been totally wrong.
