    I don't mind spending a lot of money for a fancy meal as long as it's delicious! The grilled chicken was dry, the salad didn't have enough dressing, the steak fries were terrible, the burger didn't Wow me. This is our second visit, we were not impressed with this visit. We will eat somewhere else before we spend our time at GLC.

    The steaks were absolutely incredible. Charcuterie board was so good, not a bad thing on it. We couldn’t finish our sides because the steaks were too good to not finish every bite. Love this restaurant and we’ll definitely be back.

    Ordered a Caesar salad. And got some other kind of salad. Then was brought another salad that I never ordered. Steak was good but the sides are terrible. Seem like they was made out of a box.

    The ambiance isn’t really white table cloth quality. Management kept directing and coaching employees on the floor making the staff nervous. Servers didn’t know how to open wine, took 3 people. Staff needs to be trained and educated about their food and wine. Big difference from when they first opened. Food quality was excellent.

    We got an early reservation before the super bowl, so it was very quiet. Max was our server, and he was awesome! He had high energy, was polite, and very knowledgeable. I had called weeks early as we wanted the Surf and Turf special, and I was told it was going to go through the end of February. Well, they dropped it for a Valentine's Day/week menu. Max helped us reproduce the ST special, but it did end up costing $40 more frustratingly. We split a 10oz filet, which unfortunately had a side that was overcooked and it just was tougher than it should have been for a filet. Lobster was spot on. Chandon Champagne was great, chop salad was a winner. Scalped potatoes were good, but could have used more salt (need to ask for salt as there is none on the table). They only had beets or Brussel sprouts for a veggie, so we went with the mushrooms, which were also excellent. I also had a smoked Old Fashion, which was incredible! We passed on dessert (which was also included in the ST special, but not for this meal). We were full so it would have been a take home anyways. We definitely will come back and try out the menu again, but Max was the highlight of our visit!

    I ordered the Asian beef skewer appetizer, the French onion soup, and a loaded baked potato. The skewers had WAY too much sauce on them; I could hardly taste the beef. The French onion soup was extremely salty! The “loaded” baked potato was laughable as there was hardly anything on it, I assumed a $9 baked potato would actually be loaded not have a few sprinkles of bacon and a dollop of sour cream

    Order mule to drink no ginger beer in it. Order Captain coke which are $14 each. When you pay for $65 for a steak they nickel and dime you to death here $3 extra if you want steak sauce. Paid $14 for 4 shrimp that were burt and over cooked. I can't believe they didn't charge me $2 extra for a chilled salad fork. Overall about $250 with tip. I think at that price point your meal should be flawless which it wasn't. Salads and steaks are delicious.

    We invited friends for dinner. Our server was great, cocktails was good too. The wine selection is not to big but they run out with the cab we want. The potatoes in the gratin still raw. They put it back in the oven but it came back when we finished the steaks. We took it home for free. Espresso Martini was a great closing for the evening. We had in the past better food at Shkode. Again our server was great.
