    Food and service were both excellent. I think having steaks that are over $100 is too much. We have eaten here and other locations multiple times over the years and I don’t remember the prices ever being this high.

    We ate here for a pre-graduation dinner. Our child had to leave at a set time to line up for graduation at the arena nearby. We informed our server of this time (we were seated well over an hour before the time, so not unreasonable) and asked that his meal be brought out as quickly as possible - before the others if needed. Unfortunately, this did not happen and my son only had about 5 minutes to eat before he had to leave. The food was delicious, but for the price, we were disappointed that our graduate had to rush through his meal and couldn’t even finish it.

    Service was slow, fishes were not clear d from the table, soup was luke-warm, steaks were over-cooked, fire alarms were going off in the kitchen throughout our meal. This was not the experience that we expected for our Mother's Day celebration when we spent over $600 for dinner.

    I was so very disappointed in the food everything was terrible and the Lobster bisque was disgusting. Even the waitress said it was horrible and gave us salad to compensate. The Augratin potato’s was horrible and the cream spinach was nasty. I was so disappointed it was unbelievable. Then the manager told us people have been complaining about the taste and quality of the food, but still made us pay for most of the bill. My Mother’s Day was ruin by eating there. Awful experience.

    Very disappointing Mother’s Day Dinner. Two Steaks requested, rare and medium rare, came out well done. Waited a solid 30 minutes, finally flagged down one of our two servers, it will be right out. Another 10 minutes passed, by then the other ten members of our party were finished eating. They then sent the chef out to apologize and ask how they wanted the steaks cooked, at that point they were done. They brought them out anyway! One was almost raw, and the other one was overcooked again! Our servers disappeared after the food was served, never asked how our meals were, never asked if we needed anything else, never offered dessert or coffee. The manager finally came over to apologize, and give gift cards to the moms at the table. Nice gesture, but it didn’t make up for the disappointing family dinner.

    The steaks and sides were absolutely delicious. They serve the steak a little different than other steakhouses with a sizzling plate with a bit of butter and it just takes the steak up a level. They have a great wine and cocktail selection as well. Their service is wonderful. Attentive but not pushy, friendly and accommodating. The only thing I did not love was their desserts. They were good but not great like their steaks. We will be back!

    Food was great, waiting 20 minutes with a reservation on your anniversary was not. Many people were waiting even though they had reservations. It would not have been as bad if it wasn't for an occasion. After being seated, it took another 15 minutes for a server to take our drink/appetizer order. Not the server's fault, he was great.
