I would not recommend going to Sax. The customer service is poor. As I was approaching the counter, the security guard grabbed my arm. Then, I had a reservation for noon and I showed my confirmation. The host that day was very rude and unprofessional. I would not recommend this establishment at all.

Hosted a party of four on Saturday night at the late show. Great performance, incredible food, every seat in the house had an excellent view of the action. Only complaint is that it is really dark - hard to read the menus - and really loud - very difficult to hold a conversation.

My only complaint was the drink prices were outrageous and then on top of it there was a $5.00+ service charge? For 2 vodka sodas I paid over $33!! Insane and I won't come back solely for that reason they are taking advantage of consumers

Sax was amazing from beginning to end. The check hostess was polite and helpful. Once we were seated the waiter was informative of everything that would go on throughout our dinner experience. The food was delicious and more than enough, even the popcorn was good. I would definitely recommend this place for a girls night out, or a date night. We are already planning to return.

Nice place, good food, but I expected much more from the show. Show did not grab me at all. Sequence of three-four numbers and intermitions of half an hour in between was very disappointing. From all the performers only woman gymnast showed great talent and skill and stand out for me. Definitely cannot recommend this place and will not be coming back. The main reason-not a good value for my money and show was disappointing. Main reason I chose this venue is for the show. If show was great, my rating and review would be much more positive.

The hubby took me here for my Birthday dinner. It was a great intimate dinner location. The ambience coupled with the show made for a very grown and sexy dinner. Also the service was impeccable, not a dirty dish or empty glass remained on the table for any length of time. Would recommend to friends, family and strangers alike. We will most definitely be back.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 2yr anniversary at SAX and it was amazing. The performances were phenomenal and the food was simply delicious! The waitress was VERY attentive and kind giving complementary champagneflutes and strawberry cheesecake for dessert. My only complaint was our seating for the evening. We were placed along the stage that made our view almost impossible and subsequently had to watch the stage performances via a monitor on the wall. However, some performances are conducted on a floor stage or out amongst the audience which was very fun and engaging. We will definitely be returning!!

Would be nice if the shows were closer together and not so spaced out. 20 minute downtime for about 10 minutes of shows is too long of a break.

You only get to see half of the show because if you sit upstairs you are unable to view what is going on on the floor you can only look into the little window and if you sit downstairs you have to crane your neck to see what’s going on in the window. My food showed up five minutes before the check did. And their reservations are not eligible for OpenTable points even if you happen to spend $400. A waste

My wife, the birthday girl became ill after dinner. No one else got sick from the food, but no one ordered the scallops besides her. Steer clear of the scallops. Other than that, I would most likely recommend to a friend.

The fondue was amazing, and one of the best appetizers I’ve ever had! The waitress brought us complimentary dulce de leche cheesecake and shots to celebrate my husbands birthday! Highly recommend!

Had a WONDERFUL time there. Took my boyfriend there for his 50th and he had a magnificent time. Something he will never forget. The ambiance was very sexy. Food was great... if you are undecided about what to eat please try the oysters or fondue for the appetizer, and the lamb or salmon for the entree. The service was great, as well.

The first table the hostess provided the booth seat was very low. I did request another table but she stated “we don’t have any other tables available.” We did see empty tables in the restaurant. She wasn’t going to accommodate us, therefore I got up and stated “I refuse to sit here” and started walking away. The moment I got up is when she decided to find another table. The second table was horrible. It was in the front corner and we couldn’t see the show. The only good thing was the waitress very friendly and the food was good.
