    Smash burger was good. We would not order the crab cakes again. A bit pricey but you are paying for ambiance. Uses cloth napkins.

    We got the 16 0z prime ribeye- well seasoned, tender and cooked correctly. Crab cake was very good- although the kitchen forgot to put mine in so it came after everything else- but they made it right and comped them. Server was very good and attentive. Hostess was not friendly- a shame because it kinda gave us a bad feeling when we first walked in- not the tone this restaurant should want to immediately set for customers. Overall it was good- we would go back but there are better choices in Wilmington

    We decided on this restaurant for my husbands birthday dinner as he is a fan of dry aged steaks. I made the reservation days in advanced and our the table given by the hostess was right in the path of the entrance, only a few feet from the door, on a 30 degree night. It was very frustrating to be sat so poorly when reservations were made as others who came in after us were sat in much more favorable places throughout the restaurant. We weren’t too thrilled upon our interaction with the hostess, but once we met our server, Orlando everything changed. Orlando has immaculate taste for wine & food pairings along with great conversation that my husband and I enjoyed. He is very knowledgeable on the menu, Wilmington in itself and the other locations belonging to the brand. The crab cake is the best I have had and the steak was impressive - this place does not cheap out when it comes to portions either. Take my advice, request Orlando if you are wanting to eat here, he will not disappoint ( even if your freezing the entire night, interrupted by other customers brushing you as the walk by to leave, and hostesses that act like they are being forced to work there)

    Dry aged strip and dry aged ribeye... very good dry aged flavor. Drinks were nice. Brussel sprouts were tasty but could have been a bit more crispy. The ribeye ordered medium came out way too red and our server Olivia took care of it, and was generally very attentive our entire meal.

    Such a great atmosphere guys. Wonderful food, the service was impeccable, the drinks were pro-level, we couldn't have wished for a better way to celebrate some time together. I couldn't recommend this place with any more fervency. Great job y'all. One of the best places in all of Wilmington, from Surf City through Wrightsville, the cargo district to downtown. Top notch.

    We’ve been before and wanted to go For an early New Year’s Eve dinner. Food was delicious and portions were perfect. We split the wedge salad and asparagus. We both had a 6oz. filet. We didn’t feel rushed and had an excellent server. We will definitely be back!

    The service was very inattentive. Had to look for our service multiple times. The timing of the appetizers/salads were poor. Ordered a coffee and it was forgotten about and when it came, it was cold. When our dinner came all of our sides were cold showing our food sat for sometime before delivered. The frittes where stale and cold. The entrees were very good. The steak and frittes plate was a good value for the money. But the bone in rib-eye ($75 entree) was not very juicy. The dip given with it was very bitter and didn’t really go well with the steak - thought it was an so jus but it was a vinegar based dip. With the closing of Port City Chop house I was really hoping that this could be our go to steakhouse in the Wrightsville Beach area. This visit failed to meet that goal.

    Always a great place to go for top quality food. My husband loves the smoked pork chop and I fantasize about their wedge salad. Not many choices for those who don’t eat red meat but plenty of small plates to replace an entree.
