Third time we have been in and out of oysters... at the beginning of happy hour ? Is it just supply?

Our server was fantastic, her name was Chloe.

Overall I would give it 75%
Food was good, servers friendly, but you kind of get forgotten when seated in the back section of the restaurant.
Better attention to the glass cleanliness would be great too....old lipstick does little too enhance cocktails for the gentlemen requesting the drink

Very small portions, and subpar quality of food for the price they charge. Oysters we had to return as they barely had any meat at all. Server was nice but blamed the season for the size of oysters; we would have believed it minus we had oysters elsewhere the previous week and they were meaty. Calamari that we ordered had maybe 5 pieces of stale calamari with bunch of peppers to make up the volume.

NY strip loin was delicious, but the ravioli was really bland.

Overall, it tries to be a high-end restaurant with its price tags but cannot keep up with the quality of fine dining.

Ordered the Hero Chicken Bowl. Chicken portion was small and dry. Underwhelmed. Also asked for a candle for my friend's day dessert and it did not come. Basically the service was good however overall it was an average experience for a restaurant that tries to be more than average. Thanks

Only criticism I’d have is with your Master Chicken. Has in past been one of your flagship items. Last time we were there a couple months ago, I had the chicken and it was VERY salty. Still good, but overly salty. Last night I had it again, as I do love it, but it was as if the cooks forgot the salt in the recipe - lacked any salty flavour profile. I’m wondering if your namesake chef has moved on, and the recipe isn’t been carefully watched? Only criticism.

Honestly worst experience, came to celebrate my anniversary and to have steak. Ordered a fillet and New York , fillet was raw and we asked for medium rare. New York was done medium well when we asked for medium rare, waitress brought only one new steak which was the new York and this time it wasn’t cooked properly again… nothing was done but removing one of the steaks and a free dessert.. our bill was still 130$ which we would of expected if we actually got to enjoy our food. I couldn’t even eat with my fiancé as my steak was sent back TWICE. Very disappointing as it ruined our anniversary dinner and we most definitely will not be back as there was nothing done to accommodate our steaks both being cooked wrong multiple times, a free dessert is not suffice for this. Beyond disappointing as this is a regular place we come at least 2X a month and now we will not be coming back

Claiming a ‘good steak is a right of passage’ may be a tad much. You can claim to serve all the best cuts on the planet but if your kitchen can’t get the customers requested cook in 3 attempts what’s the point ? Part of the cost for a good steak includes having it served at the temperature which it is ordered & when a waitress apologizes for the kitchens repeated attempts and failures it’s just embarrassing for all involved.
A display case of personalized steak knives holds more irony than purpose.
Do better.

Our server was friendly - but terrible, the restaurant wasn’t busy and we waited more than 20 minutes for our 1st drinks order to be taken and then even longer again to have the food order taken - which he forgot to put in.
He said the kitchen was busy, then the manager came and apologized and said the server had gotten busy and forgot to put our order in.
The manager did take some drinks off the bill which was kind of her but the service was really bad.

I come to snl fairly often & every time until yesterday I’m always satisfied. If you’re going to take away the happy hour it would be reasonable too at least post it & or inform on the the phone call check in. All the food was warm at best & I ordered the master chicken with the 3rd piece barely a nugget. We also were seated in a high traffic service station. Our server was great but the rest of our experience can’t say the same unfortunately this time.

Made reservations for 10:15 knowing the restaurant closed at 11:00. Went there for Oysters Happy Hour as a late night snack. Arrived at 10:14 and took till 10:22 for someone to finally acknowledges as staff seemed more concerned about closing up then getting us seated. We were told that last call in the kitchen was 10:30 which we knew but would have been nice to have been seated right away instead of waiting and waiting. When we finally got seated, we advised that we were ready to order and it was another 5 minutes before the waitress came to our table. Of courses we wanted oysters and a few glasses of wine and would have been out by 11:00 but we were told that they were sold out. Unfortunately for them, we knew someone (won’t say who) who works there and they were there last night and they said that they did have oysters but they usually tell customers around that time that they aren’t available or sold out because of the amount of time it takes to shelve them and prepare them. Truly disappointing experience and wondering if we would have gotten our oysters had we been served right at 10:14 and able to order immediately instead of the waitress finally taking our order at 10:28pm. We politely told them that we were there for oysters and we would come back another time, which we will but felt this experience should be shared with management.

If kitchen closes 30 minutes prior to closing and if certain items that may take longer such as oysters aren’t a available after a certain time, this should be mentioned somewhere. Yesterdays roads weren’t great and really slippery and we wouldn’t have ventured out had we known. Also please have your staff acknowledge customers upon arrival instead of worrying about cleaning and closing to restaurant when there is still 45 minutes left. We counted 10 staff members walk by us (some multiple times) before being acknowledged.

The food is consistently delicious here. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is cozy, and the cocktail menu is varied and fun. The prices are a bit high, especially for the steaks, but the quality is there so you get what you pay for.

Great for a date night or evening with friends.

Restaurant was cold, we could not take our jackets off or get comfortable, no option to change seats. Single door, every time door opened cold draft came in and cooled restaurant down. They said furnace issues but did nothing to add alternative heat. We Left after appetizers and ate somewhere else. I expected more from a restaurant charging that amount. I would not go back to this restaurant.

We dined at S+L for a business lunch. It felt quieter than normal at 1PM on a Wednesday. Service was great. Appetizers were fresh and delicious - we had ahi tuna sushi, prawns & calamari, which had a really nice black garlic aioli sauce! Our mains were cooked to perfection and we shared the PB cup sphere for dessert - it was rich and decadent - more than enough to feed 4! Extensive drink menu to choose from. Look forward to dining here again.

Everything was good but our server Mercede was spectacular. She was cool as a cucumber, kind, courteous and very professional. And on top of that she upsold us, which I rarely see from servers any where today. I would recommend that you use her to train new staff in a shadowing role, as I believe she is an excellent example of the face of any business.
