    PRICES HAVE INCREASED BEYOND THE RESTAURANT'S VIBE AND AMBIANCE. THE SERVICE IS FAIR BUT WAIT-STAFF SELLS-UP ON ITEMS (ie, $5 FOR BUTTER w/mroom ON STEAK, $1 FOR A MARTINI OLIVE w/cheese, $9 FOR BREAD&BUTTER). PLUS, MY $16 CAULIFLOWER SOUFFLE STARTER WAS BURNED ON EDGES . SERIOUSLY????

    First time there for a birthday dinner. Not impressed with the service. Wait staff standing around. Not attentive as one would expect for a higher end steak house. Never had to pay extra for the bread and butter before. Not a great value for the price my husband had scallops from appetizer menu I had small filet and a Salad. No drinks. Out the door at over $111.

    Way over prices! The filet was good but the vegetables were horrible and blue cheese on the wedge salad was very good. I told the server i didn’t like the veggies at all took ONE bite still charged me for them. 6oz filet sweet tea veggies and salad time two for $133 excluding the tip which i only left $16 i wasnt calculating the veggies on the tip percentage.

    Blown away by the Szechuan style eggplant, it was the best Szechuan anything we've ever had. The steak I ordered was perfect as well, highlighted by the dipping sauce we were both fascinated by (trying to guess what the subtle ingredients were)

    First time customers celebrating our anniversary. Arrived early for reservation, seated right away and greeted with signed “Happy Anniversary” menu from staff (nice touch!). Wedge salad was family style and customarily split in two, delicious! Featured 12 ounce Wagyu burger was best burger of all time! Rare Filet was cooked correctly (most places get this wrong!) and sliced like butter, splendid! Wait staff was quite attentive and the very personable manager was also generously accommodating. Pricey? Maybe. But you get what you pay for - we LOVED the food, will definitely be back especially when friends come to visit! Highly recommend!

    I do not mind paying a lot for great food but the food was good, not outstanding and I thought quite overpriced. There was no fish as the fresh catch, only scallops, I was disappointed because fresh fish was what I had in mind. I ended up just getting a salad and a side of brussels sprouts. My sons both wanted crab cakes and those were only offered as a pricey appetizer which included one crab cake and a few greens for $24. They had to fill up on Boombalatti's, which was ok with them. So, in all we got two appetizers, a salad and a side (water to drink) for about $90. I don't mind the price but would hope to get one entree for that. The food is fine but just know that it's pricey for what you get.

    Food was good, steak was bland but good. No salt or pepper at the table, waiter was mediocre. Never came back to fill my water or left a bottle like I seen at other tables. My and an 11 year old. 300 bucks with tip. I had to ask for bread. Salads are great! Took mine home. Service for that money should have been a little better. I do believe that Texas Road House steak is more bang for the buck. I travel all over the world and am a foodologist. Service is the most important

    Steak knives poor, ceramic plates not smooth so difficult to cut steaks, very loud, need better sound proofing so intimate conversation can be heard & enjoyed. However, the filet mignon, that was ordered by one of the guests was tender, not fatty & a breeze to cut!

    My cousin was visiting from out of town, and we decided to try it out after all of the raves and reviews I’ve been hearing around town. Definitely pricey, but I have to tell you it was probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life! My cousin who used to live in Alaska said the salmon was the best she’s had in years and also agreed one of the best meals she’s ever had! If you have a special occasion and want to splurge a little you should definitely pick this restaurant!

    We had been waiting to try this place for three years and finally decided - on our anniversary- to give it a try. The ambiance is average, but, despite it being a butcher shop, it looks like an ordinary restaurant; rhe butcher counter is tastefully integrated into the “open kitchen” concept. The food - truly outstanding! The prime ribeye was except - best I’ve ever had. It even beat out Ruth’s Chris, which has always been my go to steakhouse. The salmon special was also outstanding- cooked to perfection and truly mouth watering. The $6 fries were excellent, too. We had terrific service from Leah, and we were touched by the signed menu wishing us “happy anniversary,” signed by all the staff! The only caution is the price. Very expensive $65 for my prime 16 oz ribeye, and the other steaks are even more expensive. Ha I f said that, if you’re looking for a truly exceptional food experience, this is the place!!
