would honestly want a refund did not feel professional service at all. reservation was moved to an earlier time and they still took forever to get us in. food came out and was obviously microwaved. for a high end restaurant at least a discount wouldn’t been appreciated.

Overrated. T bone steak was burned. Creamy spinach had no taste. Salad was good and so was the wines. Too dark in the whole restaurant. I like the light on so I can see my food. Server was nice.

Food was terrible. The calamari was over cooked. The stuffed mushrooms were tasteless. My wife’s steak was cooked to the right temperature but the Oscar style topping was not good. The bernaise sauce was inedible.

Had a reservation for a booth, the special instructions were ignored on our request. When I pointed out the mistake (tired seating us at a table) they said I would have to wait because they were busy. When you pay for quality service one would expect someone to read and pay attention to a simple request.

The 500 degree plates over cooked the steak. When you order a medium steak and it’s placed on a hot plate, it should be slightly undercooked so when it arrives it finishes cooking. This was not the case, my medium filet ended up being close to well done.

The server was amazing and was rewarded for his services, the other food ordered was what is expected at a steak house.

Everything was great. A little disappointed with the birthday dessert. Last year desert was amazing!!! Comparing the two one was a 10 and this one a 2. A big difference.

But no worries we will be back!!!

Food was very good and so was the service. Only complaint was the shareable sides, this had been our 10th or more visit and the sides have gotten smaller with the price of them we didn't expect that the sides would get smaller and even though the steaks come out piping hot the side items are just warm. Also my salad was not the usual size in prior visits I would be able to share it but not the past few visits. Not worth the 11 to 12.50 on side dishes if you merely get a taste. Also a little more light would be nice.

Served lacked experience, several items were not prepared as ordered and $47 steaks were brought back to the kitchen and the plates were reheated…serving them to us with a plate full of hot grease. Meat was over cooked. Sides were just ok. I’ll pass next time.

This steak house is by far the best I've been to in a while. The ambiance is perfect for a date or anniversary. Although they are on the expensive side, the food and service are well worth it. Its not a place to go for a quick bite, but more of a place to relax and enjoy the people you are with. i Highly recommend this place.

ok meat, Harris Teeter grocery beef is better, R.Chris not wonderful, as it should be.

outback food is better for a third of the price

great service, lovely people and effort, many many glasses on the table, very clean' servers all over the place keeping table tidy

but $54 for a strip steak ala cart?

baked potato may have been microwaved, mashed potatoes not available?
