    We had the butcher cut steaks and key lime pie. Both were exceptional! We celebrated my wife’s birthday. Our server Tiffany was so attentive and carried out my special birthday request to perfection. I am so happy I chose this restaurant for our special occasion!

    The server was amazing - she was personable and made a good cocktail recommendation. The classic old fashioned was delicious! The food I had was mixed. The tuna tartare had good tuna but overall it was a little too salty for me. I was grateful for the generous splash of lemon to somewhat offset this. The pork sausage and cheddar had an unpleasant texture - the sausage casing wasn’t crispy, leaning on being a little tough and the sausage itself had a somewhat mushy texture - it could be the cheddar used or the extenders. The red can age was too sweet and really mushy. The sauce it came with was very sweet too.

    We went here for dinner before a show at the Orpheum. Calamari was way too salty. My husband ordered the pork chop, which was smothered in blue cheese and blueberry sauce. Too much. My sea bass was very small, thin, over cooked and also over salted. Over $300 for a very subpar overpriced, over salted meal. Disappointing. Won’t be back anytime soon.
