    This is such a great joint. We came for our sons birthday and had a perfect dinner. Then decided to come back again the next night for date night. Looking for a reason to come back again soon!

    Food came out at all different times and there was no rhyme or reason. Side order of fries came out first followed by one entree. An appetizer came out next than a salad. Had to ask were our last plate was. Bone Marrow came out and was all jam and sauce and virtually no marrow. Marrow was sent back and second marrow was fine. Lamb entree was dry and oily. Fries looked like the bottom of the fry basket. Salad was supposed to be wedge and looked like a sad side salad from Denny’s and not a $14 dollar salad. Very little interaction with server. We had been wanting to try this place for months. Was so disappointed. When spending that kind of money for food you expect a good quality meal. This was definitely not a five star meal.

    They apparently don’t have a grace period for reservations. They told me I missed my reservation at 1PM when I arrived at 1:11PM and then had to wait an additional 15 mins for a new table…

    Phenomenal dinner. We sat upstairs next to the open windows overlooking Chestnut St. The food and drinks were fantastic, as was our server Marco. This place is a whiskey and steak lovers heaven.
