The Ambience was lovely. You could hear yourself talk.. which is not the case in 95% of restaurants. The steak was cooked to perfection. Salad, sides ordinary. Wine price were beyond ridiculous. And service was over intrusive. To the point the server was listening to our entire conversation. So much for romantic evening. To interrupt you every 5 mins to ask if everything is wonderful is annoying. LET PEOPLE ENJOY THEIR MEAL! Really a greeting and water is nice. Order wine. And don't come back until you take the order. Then don't come back til you bring it. How about just walk by and see if I flag you down? Why does good service mean interrupting every 5 seconds?? Lastly- the entire menu is coated in butter. And the place smells of butter. It should smell like steak. Or fresh bread! Awesome steak.. will never go back. For the price- I really wanted to enjoy my dinner. But we were interrupted too many times to have a conversation. Like EVERY other restaurant. It's as if they think you came to talk to them. The experience didn't equal the price- for sure. Food was good, but not 4x the price good. Then.. add to that limited parking to force you to valet. Outright gouging. Some people can walk 10 yards. And some people don't want to turn over a 100k+ car or its contents to a 17yr old making minimum wage. Really annoying evening.

The restaurant is amazing every time we dine there. Our latest dinner was a little different because of other diners being extremely obnoxious but the staff was superb as usual and did everything to make it better for us. They always go above and beyond.

Service excellent. My Ribeye was tasty but a little tough. Didn't like seating. Was seated next to door where all waiters and hostesses came in and out of kitchen and serving area. Was bumped a couple of times and was afraid a tray of food was going to land on me every time a waiter passed

The last two visits has been the same experience. It took about 10 minutes before we were greeted at the table. Appetizers took long (we had to send our bisque back as they were cold), and steaks we’re not good quality and under seasoned for $62! Something has changed and it will be a while for us to returned. My family of five were disappointed.

We had a great time last night celebrating the end of the school year for one of the girls I was with. We wanted to sit in the bar to watch the Belmont race and though we were at a very small table, it was fun! Food and drinks were excellent as always.

I had never been before so we went for my birthday. The food was amazing, my wine was delicious and the over all experience was unparalleled. Best meal I’ve ever had at a restaurant. We will definitely be coming back. I wish we would’ve gotten a picture of the crab cakes, but they didn’t last long enough for us to get a picture. Overall great experience. They also gave me a berry cheesecake dessert for my birthday.
