We went in for Father's Day wth a 415 reservation. We were finally seated thirty minutes later despite confirming a few days prior. I love how they confirm your reservation, but if they don't seat you on time, oh well. We had my parents. My husband and myself and our three children under age 6 and two guests that were visiting from out of state. It wasn't a very good impression. Supposedly, one of their waiters didn't show on time. Another one agreed to serve us after we had been waiting for 30 minutes with three wiggly little ones. There were others in the same position. Not just us. They had obviously overbooked. No concessions were made. No free appetizer or dessert for the inconvenience. The steaks were over cooked and the spinach tasted like baby food. Dessert was okay, but the entire meal can't rest on dessert. We come to this restaurant several times a year. After this experience, we will find a new place for our special occasion meals.

The service we received was beyond outstanding. It was Excellent!!, We were so taken care of by all the serving staff, but, one of them went above and beyond the call of duty. DORCAS, she has a heart for serving. She really made our special occasion even more special and we will certainly be coming back. The food was absolutely delicious. This was our fourth time and it will certainly not be out last. We give a big shout out to DORCAS, she did such an outstanding job. What a great assets she is to your business.

We have eaten here a number of times over the past few years for special occasions including a big graduation dinner. The food is always very good ambience and wait staff are excellent. the only downside is the prices are very high for Columbia when there are so many other good restaurants available.

Service was excellent, steaks were cooked rare as ordered. However, for a Father's day brunch special, there should have been more of a brunch style menu, not the normal evening entree menu.

The food was outstanding as always. The server was very attentive. It was a nice quiet setting to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The only problem...there was a fly that kept buzzing our table. We also saw a couple of gnats. If not for the insects I would give higher marks for our dining experience.

Great food. Great service. That’s what I expect. That’s what I got. I have been at another location. It was better. This was in a hotel next to a college. Dress code seemed not to be enforced even thou there was a sign walking in. Everything else was top notch like I expect.

We were so disappointed. First the sweet potato casserole came out with the topping sprinkled on - it was not crunchy and cooked as it is in other of your restaurants - the only reason we get that veggie - the delicious topping. Second, I had ordered a lobster tail with my salmon. It did not come out until 10 minutes later and it was covered in Old Bay Seasoning. I tried to wash it off with my water and napkin, but it was still evident and it still smelled. So, I sent it back. Then my salmon that I had said to not overcook - I wanted it no more than medium - made it very clear when I ordered it. It cam our very well done - crispy around the edges. So, I sent it back and then later, it came out, cold and basically raw. I told the manager, who was very concerned, that I would take it back to the hotel and heat it up and cook it some more in the microwave - I did not want to send it back again. They did remove both the lobster and the salmon from our bill...But I basically did not have dinner that evening. :-(

I've always heard good things of this establishment, but for me they definitely missed the mark by a long shot. If this were an lower brand restaurant I would be able to look past the long wait for good (with little to no one in the resturant), pesky gnats flying around the table, overcooked food, and bland appetizers. Major disappointment. Our waitress on the other hand was great which was the only thing positive about our experience.

Having been to the Charlotte location first I was disappointed with the service. I understand it was mother’s day, but I scheduled a reservation for 330 and still waited 30 minutes to be seated. That was my only problem with the service. The food was still good though. But no one addressed the wait.

When you put this name restaurant up against other highly rated eateries, you can see that there just isn't a comparison. I dont consider fine dining having to sit in a cramped environment, also it was cold, very cold. The room temperature had to be 62 degrees. Food quality was ok but NOT worth what they charge............ sorry

The steaks were not up to standard for the price. Quality of the meat was disappointing (filets not trimmed completely to remove fat). The bottle of wine we ordered was no longer available, so we ordered a more expensive bottle and it had a screw cap.
