I have no problem paying good money for good food. I can make a better steak at home, I'll even put sides with it! Pretty disappointed overall

Food was excellent and our server was very good. Only disappointment was that the environment isn't all that intimate. Tables are all open and fairly close together and the lighting was bright. But still, excellent steak, blue cheese risotto was incredible, flat bread appetizer was amazing! We would go again for sure!

I do have to give kudos to the hostess/waitress/bartender/cleaner as she was the only person doing all of those since the other person called out. I didn't notice any difference in service, no extended waiting or anything. So kudos there.

The food left me disappointed for the value. The alligator was fantastic but everything after was mediocre. The caesar salad is nothing special, but its salad so I'm not knocking it. The use of rye bread in french onion soup was not what I was expecting and definitely gave a not so enjoyable taste to the soup. The NY Strip was bland. I am not one to add toppings to a steak at a steakhouse/chophouse. I order steak at these places because they are usually very flavorful with simple salt, pepper, and maybe a pat of garlic butter but all the add ons are not for me. The NY Strip was bland and I for one wouldn't order it again. My wife had steak as well, the 6 oz. filet, but had peppercorn on it. As she put it, it needed the peppercorn so again bland steak otherwise. The garlic whipped potatoes not loaded came out with what I guess was melted butter in a few spots but it looked like little pools of grease, almost like what pepperoni pizza looks like. Once stirred in the potatoes were okay. My wife enjoyed the asparagus.

We typically go out to a steakhouse only for our anniversary or a birthday so not often, but this was definitely a let down and someplace I wouldn't jump to go back to.

Very nice experience, nice wine list, suggest getting stemmed wine glasses for the nice wine to be served, we are into wine so we noticed the difference and also train your wait staff to properly open and present the wine, there’s room for improvement. We spent over 300.00 for 2 , and expect a little better presentation. But over all it was very nice, we will be back with friends!

- The waitress was fun and her service was fantastic!

- We arrived 30 minutes before closing, and the staff still treated us as if we had ample time to order, drink, and eat. No rush! Even the chef came out and chatted with us for a few moments.

- Most importantly, the food was phenomenal! Me and my guest both had the fish, the salads and sides were hot and tasty, and the deconstructed tiramisu was delicious.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

The patio area was nice and felt very clean. Only a few flies were around. Obviously you can't do much about those outside in the late summer while eating steak. The ribeye was fine. Everything else was so-so. Portions on the sides were surprisingly large. Food quality and service were good for a place with fare 1/3 of the price. More is required at this price-point.

I made a reservation asked to be seated outside. I was told once we arrived for our reservation. Reservation were not allowed outside patio, but were welcome to wait at the bar or dine inside. Some people are not ok dining inside yet. Some people are and that is totally fine. Ended up going to Mod pizza. Pizza and Wine on there patio.

Bartender/Server was friendly and doing double duty. She did her best. Drinks and Food were exceptional (ribeye, seabass & lamb). I just wish we had been seated to eat our ceasar salad separate from our entrees. The carrot cake was tasty and made for a perfect substitute birthday cake. Overall a fun evening, great food but be prepared to break out your plastic ($$$) !

Horrible service. It was like they were upset we were there and wanted to go home. Barely anyone in restaurant, literally dropped plates on table. Hostess visibly upset that we asked to sit on patio. Absolutely bizarre. Facility itself very pretty though/clean.

Service was slow.
There were no oysters available, which all three of us were looking forward to.
For the rather expensive cost of the steaks we had they were not what we expected.
My steak was tough and had parts that I could not even chew.
I've had better food at much lower costs all over the country.
