Great spot for a business lunch or a pre-theatre meal ... excellent and diverse menu selections. I will definitely need to put this great spot back on my active list. The shut-downs last year have made us forget all the great places like this that survived and are back!! Don't forget to support great spots like this.

We were celebrating being on our honeymoon. We had the GM as our server and he was extremely friendly and just made our experience at his restaurant delightful! The food was amazing! My husband had the steak and lobster and I had the salmon pasta. We ate every bite!

It was a dinner and to the theater night with a best friend. Our waiter was very engaging, SUPER friendly, attentive and informative regarding drink and food selections. We had a variety of appetizers that were delicious. The only item was that the restaurant was a little too warm, but the hostess apologized stating that temperature regulation was out of the restaurant’s control and had asked the building’s management to get the A/C back on. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

We visited on marathon weekend. We had a conflict with our time, called ahead, and the hostess bent over backwards to accommodate us. She even called back 2 hours later to ensure I was satisfied with the new reservation. I’d go back just for the service alone.

The food was very good. Priced appropriately. Wait staff was diligent. Highly recommend.

My husband & I had dinner before Rent at the CIBC theater. Our server timed everything perfectly for meal so there was never a worry about being late for the show. The food was fantastic! We started with the charcuterie board. It had an excellent selection of meat, cheese, fruits, & spreads. Cocktails were delicious. Then the steak. I ordered the filet & my husband had the ribeye. Both were cooking perfectly medium rare & delicious. Share the sides. Those were generous. We ordered loaded mashed potatoes & green beans. Both were great. Overall, this steakhouse is fantastic and a great choice for a night out in the city.

Kelly our server was a great tour guide, helpful without being pushy. She helped us most by recommending we not leave the restaurant until 7:20 for a 7:30 show because the lines are so long and their house is directly across from the theatre. Guest's salad with shrimp was grand and my bone in ribeye was carefully cooked.
I would go back having been here for business lunches but never for a date.
