Great service. Maria was very warm and personable, just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. The Pomegranate Mimosa was beautiful and delicious. Food was delicious, especially the French Toast. The restaurant had a “fishy” smell, (our guests don’t like seafood), so that was a little off putting. Otherwise, great experience.

I took my wife out for our anniversary after reading the reviews. We were able to sit outside which was nice, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The inside looked beautiful, and our server was average. He left our menus, took our order and that was about it. The manager was polite, and stopped by to check how we were doing. The appetizer crab dip was amazing, and I would recommend again. However, the main course was not appealing at all. My steak had way too much fat on it, and I could not even cut through it. The server had it recooked and it was better the second time. For the price, the food is no where near the quality it should be. For the price of the food, I figured it would be much better. I would not return because of that. Overall it was just an "okay" experience. No where near what I would consider fine dining.

Brunch was ok but could definitely be better for $100. The Irish coffees aren’t even good anymore.

The food was wonderful, the restaurant was very clean. The service was great even though one person in our party asked for well done steak and got a rare one but he apologize and had a new one out quick. Overall the night was great.

We thought the food was good. The service was very good. But for the price we didnt feel like anything was fantastic. We did not leave thinking we would want to come back.
Your sister restaurant- The Vintage Tavern- has the same price point but the food is excellent.

This was our second time dining here. I had made a reservation for 6pm. We arrived about 10 minutes early. Another couple walked in right before us and stated their reservation was for 6:30. The hostess sat the other couple prior to asking about us and if we had a reservation which resulted in us waiting about 20 minutes or so for another table. Once we got seated, the food was good but it was frustrating to wait for such a silly oversight.

The food was just incredible...from our appetizer of crab dip to dessert of pineappple upside down cake! Our server, Taylor, was very knowledgeable about the menu, attentive and polite. He also told us about some upcoming events at the restaurant which we will certainly attend. All in all a first rate experience!

Our dinner was delicious and our steaks cooked as ordered. The Chophouse Wedge salad was superb as usual. We were initially a little nervous about going to a restaurant but we were put at ease right away. Our server was Tristan and he was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant

It was my spouse 54th birthday, with social distancing i asked for a window table not close to other customers. The table was great and the room was spectacular. The wait staff were pleasant . This was our first time and what an experience it was.

An outstanding meal from an attentive staff that were extremely kind and made every effort to ensure we had a pleasurable dining experience. The appetizers were great and main dish was fantastic. We had one of the specials. It was a seafood angel pasta dish. Fantastic dining experience and I highly recommend it.

My steak was charred on the outside but not well done like I requested on the inside. Also, the steak lacked flavor.

Good experience overall. I disliked how side items were separate from the meal. My steak was $55. I expected it to come with at least a salad or basic side item. However, side items ranged from around 7-$12 each. Food was delicious but this place caters to a specific target audience. Great experience, but don’t expect a reasonably prices menu. You pay for the experience... not the food.
