The menu was for breakfast at noon. The food was all microwaved.

The food quality and preparing of the food has gone downhill since this restaurant opened. Food took a long time to come out and when it did arrive the steak was ice cold.

We sent it back to the kitchen and it came back barely warm. All of the good sides like the Gouda Au gratin potatoes and lobster mac & cheese are no longer on the menu. Now the menu has lower quality sides. The one saving grace for the meal was the Caprese salad.

The last 3 times we have eaten there the quality of food seems to continually go down. This will be our last visit.

We ordered an appetizer that was never brought to us, the mac and cheese was spicy and I'm allergic to spicy food, when I alerted the waiter he took his time getting milk for me which is the only thing that makes the reaction stop. He even gave someone else their drinks first before giving me the milk and then offered free cake for the issue. The steak had way too much garlic and was very salty. The waiter was short with us and very rude the entire night. It was my and my husband's birthday celebration and you ruined it. We won't be back.

We love going here but hadn’t been since Covid. It was as good as I recall. I do wish guys wouldn’t wear their balm caps in nice restaurants but it didn’t take away from a good dining experience. Hassan and Eric are first rate servers!!!

My wife and I have been there 2 times in 3 weeks. Filet mignon cuts with a butter knife, combination of apple butter and pork chop was mind blowing and best ribeye I've had in a long time. 5 thumbs up!

The food was great and our server was very friendly. Everything was clean, and we felt comfortable and not crowded against other tables. We were really impressed with how quiet the restaurant was, considering how crowded and noisy the casino was that night. We will definitely be going again.

This is my third time eating here. The serving sizes have decreased considerably, but the prices are still bloated. The steaks are good, but I have had better at half the price. The Brussel sprouts were excellent. The tomatoes in the Caprese salad were unripe and pink. I wouldn't buy these tomatoes for my own kitchen, let alone serve them in an $11 salad.

Good service in a nice atmosphere. Food wasn’t as good as the past (prior COVID) but was more economical due to change to free side dish. Wine selection was weak but they explained they were redoing their cellar and would be much better soon

We've been here a few times so we've come to learn what to expect. A lot has changed. Some likely because of covid,some maybe because of staff turnover? Food was still amazing, except the breadsticks which were burned. You get bread after you're seated, our waiter forgot ours (breadsticks) and didn't bring them till we asked. Drinks were average, not as good as the cocktails usually are. The normal placemats, gloves, and wiping between services was nonexistent. Our waiter also didn't give us any run down like you'd normally get of the menu, choices, etc. He was friendly, just not quite the level you'd expect at final cut.

Took forever to get seated and already had a reservation and then after 21 mins of sitting and NO ONE had even come to the table ... not even to greet, bring waters or even a drink order ... NO ONE, we left. It was a complete waste of time.

Been going there for years. Portions of the steak have been greatly reduced however not the price. Don’t mind paying the price if the value is there.

This was second time there. First time was outstanding, great service and great steak! This time, not as good. Entrees came out about 5 minutes after appetizers, steaks were not seasoned at all and undercooked for what was ordered.

Waited 5 minutes to be seated. Waited another 25 minutes and never even saw a waiter. Didn’t get a chance to even order drinks. Left after a half hour without ever being greeted at the table. The only staff member we saw had no explanation and offered no help.

Poor service, went out for our anniversary. Spend 2 hours before we could leave (20 minutes just for the check) . Steak was made with to much pepper and mac and cheese was bland. Drink wasnt mixed correctly, instead of fixing and making the drink right that they added "more Sprite". I assumed going to this restaurant that it would be more high class and that they wouldnt treat me like I am at Hooters. The one positive note was the manager. Went above and beyond to make the evening better. Even remove the steak from the bill without hesitation or anyone complaining to him. Could actually see that we were not happen with our night.

I was very disappointed with my experience here. The host and manager did a bad job greeting me while I was trying to check in. The host then took us to a dirty table. Our server was extremely sweaty and had very limited knowledge of the menu. I ordered the pork chops and it was extremely delicious. But when I finished my wine I noticed dirt (looked like broken cork) in the bottom of my glass.

We had a reservation and our table was not ready. The host took my cell number down to call when table is available and he never called. Went back 20 mins and they had been seating others and skipped over us. He stated we needed a reservation and we said we have one it was for 7:45 pm and our table wasn’t ready and you were going to call. It was obvious he was not organized. Just felt the staff wasn’t attentive and the shrimp was over cooked. I just didn’t want to deal with sending back. Over priced for quality I could have received at lower price at Red Lobster.

Upon being seated at our table we found leftover remnants from the last people to use that table, IE food crumbs & sticky table. Ordered the calamari as an appetizer and was just was not that flavorful. Main entrees taste good enough but portions were smaller than you would expect for the price of the dish. Drinks tasted okay, but after asking for stronger than normal drinks, we were still served somewhat watered down mixed drinks. Server was on top of things for the most part and environment was pleasant. I don't want to say do not go here because I feel there is potential. Maybe just an off night. We were celebrating our anniversary so our expectations were much higher than that which we received, across the board. Haven't ruled out a return visit, however, we are definitely not making plans to go back. Be an impulse decision if we do based on our experience.

This was our first and last visit. Service was great, appetizers were great (calamari and cheese plate), entrees were inedible. We literally had only a couple bites- both of us had Shrimp Scampi. Pasta was over cooked and slimy, no flavor, we intended to eat at least all the shrimp, but even those were rubbery and no flavor. Our meal was already mostly free so we didn’t make a big deal out of it, but will eat at the other restaurants in this location which have never disappointed.

Host that day she was really polite and helpful. The server was nice to us and polite too. But the only thing that I will change is for the server to be more...how can I say this...try to make a bond with your customers. She was nice but it felt that it was a job for her not that she was enjoy it or trying to go the extra mile...I dont if you guys can understand what I'm trying to say. But overall me and my wife we had a nice evening. Thank you

We opted to eat at the bar and ordered seafood appetizers in lieu of dinner. The crab legs were frozen when served and they only offered to give us new ones rather than comp anything

We were very disappointed in our food. The NY Strip was very tough, cooked 1-2 temperatures higher than requested and had no flavor. The tuna steak special was also tough and overcooked, but had a sauce that provided flavor and saved the dish. We did not feel the food reflected a high end steakhouse or the price point.

Our server, I believe his name was Chris, was great! Atmosphere was unique and enjoyable.

Ordered the Waygu and was surprised that it was the small Waygu strips. The menu was not clear on what type of Waygu so I was disappointed and the Waygu was just okay. Other than date it is a fine restaurant.
