    We enjoyed Sunday Brunch outside (sure wish Zimmerman would redecorate outside and inside for that matter, both are tired) I enjoyed the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict, absolutely the best crab cakes in town. The food never disappoints at True Blue nor does the service.

    What a wonderful experience. Friendly and efficient service. The martinis were top notch. Bothe the 6oz and 9oz filets were perfectly seasoned and prepared. Leah made sure to confirm that our understanding of temperatures matched the chef's - a sure sign of a well trained staff. Great additions as both the porcini butter and the bone marrow were excellent. Well crafted wine list, with options across different price points. They even had a gluten free dessert, the chocolate bonnet, that didn't feel like we settled. I can't wait to try the butcher counter.

    The prices are high for a mediocre steak. Not seasoned very well, but cooked perfectly. The sauce was excellent and made the steak better. I think $9 for table bread is absurd. Berns does not charge for their bread, neither does Flemings or Mortons. A very loud place, but the decor was pleasant.

    Went for Sunday brunch. Reservations, so so problems with seating. Hannah was brilliant and knew the menu thoroughly. Steak frites were perfect and meat accurately done. Fritatas very tasty and cooked just right. Bartender did Bloody Mary's very well. Great experience for us. I must say the noise level was pretty high although we sat behind a nice half-wall, which was great! We will return

    Great dinner for 4 of us. My wife had salmon, my brother had the fillet, my buddy had steak frites, and I had the smoked chicken. All highly liked. Mine was a whole roasted chicken, and I could only finish the thigh and leg, so brought whole the breast. It was most and tender, and the skin pulled off easily. Good wine and cocktails as well. Excellent service, well paced.

    Service was very good. Restaurant was beautiful. Dessert and decafe coffee were very nice. The food, however, was disappointing. We chose the prime ribeye steaks. At $66 for a steak we expected them to be very very good. Instead they were quite average. At this price point we expected more from our steaks.

    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
