    Everything was delicious as always. This is a favorite for my husband & I. This is probably out 4th or 5th time at Erolwest and it’s never a disappointment. Service was good and our service was great and very helpful and attentive. My only complaint was that I’ve included in the reservation notes that I was celebrating a birthday which wasn’t acknowledged. Everything else was great and would still continue going there.

    One of the best culinary experiences we have had in a very long while. The food was outstanding. The creativity and quality of the dishes were a pleasure to experience. The service and ambiance only enhanced the taste of the dishes. The pork belly is a must! Best we’ve ever had! Five Star experience all around.

    Being a person of color at times I get nervous and anxious going away from New York because I don’t know how I will be received in a predominantly white area but everyone was so gracious, nice and friendly. Definitely will be going back. It was beautiful. The food was extremely delicious. I definitely love love the atmosphere. I was already planning another trip but they booked till February 2025; gutted and sad 😞 but definitely will be on that phone looking and refreshing the page.

    Ordered the Filet and a NY Strip/Lobster tail special. Both cuts were cooked perfectly. A little pricey but would certainly recommend.
