Excellent service and show! The food was great. My steak was cooked perfectly. My wife was very satisfied. Sax made our wedding anniversary a memorable experience

The obstructed view seating was problematic but I enjoyed the show and the performance was engaging along with the performers. For the price, food could have been better but the show was worth the price of admission. Great job!

The best steak of the house was over cook, but it was really taste, good flavor but to dry. Ambiance was great. I’ll be back. Old fashions were great.

I expected this to be a classy burlesque show and that wasn’t the case. The food was average at best and service was embarrassingly poor (even though a 20% service fee was added automatically). Everything was overpriced and underwhelming. The dancers were talented, but I will never return or recommend to a friend.

The entertainment was average I thought I was at a strip club. I felt that sax changed from how there were in the past they lost class the server was polite but lack professionalism, he wasn't trained at the level I was used to. The server stood between our tables while assisting another table with a cloth hanging from his back pocket. He was so close his rag was touch our table. Our table was very close together and we felt rush too eat. I couldn’t relax and really enjoy myself because I had to move by 8:00 pm. My husband and I celebrated his birthday every year at sax, something we enjoyed doing together this last experience was a disappointment. Sorry to be so direct but if you don’t know why then you can’t fix the problem.

We were celebrating our friend's bachelorette and were pleasantly surprised by how much the place had to offer. We absolutely loved the ambiance and food. Our hostess Alysa was amazing...she had arranged for opening shots and desert and a surprise performance for our bride to be. We weren't expecting all of this and were very happy with the service we received.
Its a perfect place for a fancy date night or a special occasion. Would definitely go again and recommend it.

Great environment! Food was great too. The waiter rushed during the meal, she did not even asked for dessert and brought the check 30m before the 2 hour time. Drink was overpriced. We asked for a Hoka, the guy asked $40 cash without receipt.

tute for dessert. The menu is limited but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The mashed potatoes are so decadent, like biting into a buttery cloud. The lobster mac and cheese is gooey, cheesy, and actually had meat in every bite--no skimping there! My medium Cajun ribeye was more like medium well and could have used a little more salt but I'd rate it 7/10--it wasn't the best but it wasn't enough to complain about. A must have experience. I will return (for a third time). I can't forget to mention how attentive the waitress and other staff were--earned an extra tip on top of the already included 22%!

Because the food was bad the chicken was over cooked. Wait staff didnt know much about menu. The dessert was nasty too. It felt like they threw anything that could come out quick and can feed massive amount of people. Also it fell quite drafty on the upper level if coming up this steps to the right. The bill was 200.00 and I've had better. But the show was great and Enter active. Also one martini was 20.00 dollars.

After going to a dinner theatre in Paris, this didn’t stack up for me. The entertainment is every 30 minutes rotating through the night instead of a continuous show with an intermission. The entertainment was ok not great. The food was not that good and I got a migraine so there might have been MSG or some preservative in the food. There is a $75 minimum and with all the taxes and the service fee that is automatically added, the bill was $93. This $93 is a per person charge so be prepared for $100 per person. My advice is to go to Paris for this type of venue - Moulin Rouge was so much better and about the same price.
