Great all-around experience. Loved the Holiday ambiance even while dealing with Covid (we were seated on the patio outside next to the fireplace). Excellent, friendly and attentive service. Great food and cocktails. We splurged on Wagyu beef tartare and oysters for our appetizer, split the wedge salad, had a filet and bone-in ribeye, and shared a baked potato and the wild mushrooms. All the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. Only complaint would be the bone-in ribeye was a little disappointing for the price. Bone was like a ribeye you get at the grocery store, barely bigger than 3 inches and pretty thin (cut of meat was only 2oz bigger than their non bone-in one ??). When paying that price for a bone-in, I expect a larger piece of meat and more substantial bone-in (but woe is me 😬). Other than that, pretty much a perfect birthday dinner night out. We will be back for sure and can’t wait.

It was a wonderful outdoor dining experience since we had it on the last day before the lockdown took effect this December for indoor/outdoor dining. I had fresh oysters for appetizer (gone in less than a minute!), my fiancé and I had steak (good char and so scrumptious!), and had very tasty mac&cheese. This is one of our favorite local restaurants in the area. We’ll keep supporting them!

Steak was tough and hard to chew. Scallops were really good. Everything else was average at best. Great service.

It was an outdoor table with the Covid restrictions but they did they best they could with ambience. Our table was on a bit of a slant so it took a while to get settled but other than that it was very nice. Bonnie was excellent and the food was delicious.

The best steaks we've ever had in Orange County. Couple that with amazing side dishes and it made for an amazing night. Our server was extremely attentive the whole night and really made for the perfect dining experience.

We come here every year for our anniversary and although this time was unique given all of the over the top Covid restrictions being placed on restaurants I think the restaurant and staff did a great job of navigating all that and making the experience a great one.

I specifically chose this place because of the seemingly romantic ambiance, judging from the photos. I took my partner here for his birthday and was very disappointed. The customer service was sub-par and we were placed in this random corner that didn't even look like it was part of the restaurant. The desserts weren't good either...

I enjoyed the Lord Stanley though.

I understand restaurants are restricted to outside, but our table and chairs were way too small. And our server was very rude and not attentive. Food was ok. Not enough options of sides. Was hoping for better because we had heard such great things.
