Our server, Troy, was excellent! We had the Lobster Bisque which was amazing...best we’ve ever had! For our entree we shared the 32oz Tomahawk Ribeye with sides of Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms...all of it superb! The German Riesling was delightful! A great place for date night, corporate dinners or any special occasion. Fantastic...we will be back!!

Seated on time and out in time for theater. Wonderful food. Very pricey, but quality was high and portions were reasonable. An enjoyable dining experience.

The food was as usual perfectly done and delicious, the Lobster Mac and Cheese is to die for. Jason did a marvelous job waiting on the table, except right at the end, close to 10:00 pm, we ordered 3 coffees and 1 coconut cream pie, after 20 minutes, we cancelled the coffee and pie, and just ask to a bill. Jason did give us a complimentary card for pan fried calamari. GregH

As usual, the food was outstanding. The mashed potatoes were not as creamy as they usually are but the waiter replaced them quickly so all good. Jason was very good and attentive but didn't really have a good knowledge of the wines and didn't listen when we told him we were regulars but the manager brought us complementary cheese puffs for " trying them" and then gave us a card for complimentary calimari when we had already told him we don't eat seafood. Aside from that, fabulous meal!

The waiter was pleasant and served us in a timely manner. The food is cooked to perfection and is always delicious. Here is an example of perfection. I ordered crab cakes but didn't receive them right away. I was informed that they didn't make it past the manager as there appearance was not presentable. They made my crab cakes over before they ever made it to the table.

Out waitress Aspen was beyond excellent. Right on top of everything, but gave us space. The only reason for no 5th star is this category was the back server. She was clearly agitated about something and was late with water refills and fresh bread. Best steak I have had in a long time. Blew Ruths and Mastros out of the water on flavor. Serving size for Asparagus was not 2-3 people, especially for $9. Can't wait to go back. Thank you Aspen for a great family evening.

We got there and we got seated pretty much right away but what I was disappointed about is after being seated and the server introduced himself, he got my drink order and then left not telling us about specials and such and after he came back which took a while he told us what they were but by that time we knew what we wanted. I’m sorry but you should start with the specials before leaving especially for that amount of time. The rest of the night was fine although my food could have been cooked better bc some parts were medium while some were more well done when I asked for medium plus but other then that it was the service...

It was a fairly good experience. Service was good but not outstanding. There were times which the food was not coordinated which made for an awkward experience.
My daughter’s vegetarian salad came out with meat on top that she had to set aside. My fillet mignon was very good but more rare than medium rare.
The other meals were good but not outstanding . I thought the final cost was exorbitant and I felt very bad that my daughter used more than her gift certificate for my birthday, which was well over $200.

Im a regular at this restaurant, and that night the food was slightly off. However, it is usually exceptionally good maybe the head chef was out or has changed. I will be back there tonight and will let you all know about my experience again.

We were treated well, service was outstanding, food was delightful. I had informed in advance we have meeting of CEOs and they made sure we got a secluded place which was enclosed, hence less noisy to allow for private conversations.

Food was OK not outstanding but no major issues. Very $$ for what we obtained. Service was the slowest I have ever seen. 30 minutes at the table with only a drink order with nothing arriving...
Not at all crowded.

Overall good food. Oysters were very small and bit dry. Lamb was very good. NY Strip was done correctly but would have hoped for a better rub. Tuna Tartare was good. Wine was limited for a 'fancy' restaurant. Would still go back. Good service.

The selection for vegetarian/vegan is very limited. I had a salad that was just ok, so I rely on their sides selections which are always very tasty!
