    The Greeter was a bit dismissive/indifferent upon our arrival, he just looked at us like "what do you want" with a bit of an awkward silence before finally asking if he could help us... Which started our experience off on a bit of a sour note. Our server was very friendly and gave good recommendations but never did refill our water glasses, they were empty about half way through the dinner on a night described by our server as "slow." I ordered the "Slow Roasted Prime Rib" cooked medium and it was served closer to well done, though it wasn't how I requested it I still felt it was tasty. Desert was a bit small for the $10 price, it was the size of a small cupcake. Lastly though I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again I wouldn't try to talk someone out of eating here. Don't forget to get your parking validated while here.

    The food was good but our server Austin did not check on us at all. We got straws, refills and other items all from other people. He knew we were sharing food but didn’t bring share plates or have us ready for dinner. He was friendly but not an observant server.

    The food was mediocre at best and service was subpar. The prices were too high for the low quality food that was served. I would not recommend this restaurant unless there is nothing else available in the area.

    We celebrated our anniversary at a pre-concert (Elton John’s farewell tour) dinner. Our waiter Shemar was attentive and engaging; although the restaurant was very busy, he did not make us feel rushed. Shemar made menu recommendations when we asked for his favorites (sides and desserts). Finally, he checked in with us periodically to ensure we were enjoying our dinner and wine. We’ll definitely be back, because of Shemar’s 5-star service!

    Great restaurant vibe! The only complaint I have is the service wasn't great. Waiter was not very attentive, maybe this is the type of service they give, it was very fast paced environment , maybe they are not used to making sure every guest feels welcomed and taken care of.

    If you want to eat here, you better make reservations -- about a month or more in advance. Even then, available times are very limited. If you don't have a reservation, the wait can be three hours, and we weren't allowed to wait at the bar. We managed to get a lunch reservation, the food was nice (albeit a bit pricey) and the service good, but we would have preferred to have dinner.

    Busy night I’m sure since it was the Elton John concert We we’re referred by friends to your restaurant. Way to loud ! Food was good with exception of Sea Bass, very salty Forgotten orders but we know the waiter was super busy. Bill was compensated which we appreciated but probably won’t be back.

    Absolutely wonderful service from our attentive waiter, and both the manager and waiter made sure to make sure the food was EXACTLY as we'd ordered and that every guest at the table was happy and satisfied. Our party consisted of some folks from out of town who have seasoned palettes and all were impressed by both the quality of food and the wonderful service. Filet mignon was perfection and the mashed potatoes - well- let's just say I can't stop thinking of them. Will be back again for sure. Can't wait.

    Our server was so attentive, friendly and professional. We went for my dads birthday lunch and he loved it. Food was tasty and the chocolate and peanut butter pie was perfectly smooth and not too sweet but also very decadent. Our server even brought his slice out with a candle. Definitely will be back!

    Three of us had dinner here one night while in Phoenix on business. We ordered the Steamed Snow Crab Legs as an app. They were waterlogged and didn’t seem terribly fresh. I ordered the Asian Chopped Salad and added chicken for an entree. It was meh. The other two diners ordered the filet mignon and said it was delicious. We returned for lunch another day and I’m so glad we did. I had the Buffalo Wings Appetizer - BEST wings I’ve ever had! Not traditional Buffalo Wings, but way better! I ordered the tomato soup and it was delicious - not heavy on cream or basil, so it had great tomato flavor. I would return for those two menu items again and again. All of the waitstaff for both dinner and lunch were great.

    From check in to final check it was perfect. First of all the food is amazing but the team of professionals working here steal the show. Our server Isaac was attentive and knowledgeable and the person who greeted us Kash was welcoming and friendly. We ordered the butchers platter as a start and shared the Meatloaf as our meal. GET THE MEATLOAF. You won’t be disappointed.

    Probably the worst service I’ve had in a long time. Server would disappear for 30 minutes at a time. Quality of food was average. Hoped for more than what we received. Won’t be back anytime soon.

    We sat on the patio and we were approached by a violent homeless person twice during our meal. The restaurant staff tried to move him along, but we were verbally attacked and cursed at and I was scared. The manager didn’t even come over and the hostess told us she was sorry she didn’t come over, but that she “ran inside because she was scared” Food was good but not exceptional. Service was ok.

    The Arrogant ButcherResponded on October 29, 2022I am so sorry that happened to you. We apologize we may not have handled that appropriately and our Manager did not speak to you directly.
