    The food was fantastic, especially the beef Wellington. Cooked to perfect temp. Service was outstanding. The restaurant wasn't crowded so there was a lot of attention paid to us. But our waitress Teagan was amazing and cordial.

    The ambiance was peaceful and awesome. I do believe I should’ve stuck with my normal New York strip as opposed to the ribeye, but my fiancé switched with me. Her her filet mignon was okay; she enjoyed the ribeye- no harm done. The real kicker is the AMAZING service from the host and waitress. I’m a huge supporter of customer service and they were amazing. I’d come back on that alone and give my normal New York strip a try. 10/10!

    Wow, what a great first experience at Washington Prime. From the outstanding appetizers to the delicious main entrees and desserts, to the impeccable service this restaurant gets AAAA. Must haves are the delectable oysters Rockefeller, delightful sea bass skewers, chicken scarpariello, cauliflower steaks ( seasoned to perfection) to the final ending of the delicious crème brûlée. It was just the finest dining we’ve had in a very long time. Can’t wait to go back to try the crab nachos!

    Been looking to come here for some time , but if you’re looking for that traditional steakhouse experience, go elsewhere. While making our reservation, I noticed on their website how they suggest a preferred dress code, for which diners should abide by. While I realize enforcement of a dress code can be difficult, I was dismayed at the numbers of diners coming in with faded jeans, sneakers and hooded sweatshirts. Additionally, the decor and ambiance is severely lacking, and quite honestly, it seemed like this space is a repurposed burger joint. To the owners of this establishment: the food we had was very good and was nicely presented, but other than that, I feel like we spent hundreds of dollars at Ruby Tuesday.

    We eat here fairly often and it was surprising that both steaks were not cooked properly. The medium rare was medium well and the medium was rare. The medium went back twice and still wasn’t cooked properly. The server was very nice but very inattentive which is unusual here. We were comped our three drinks by the manager. We will return but last night was very surprising.

    Food was great. Everything we ordered was very well prepared. Only problem we had was with the brunch menu. I specifically called to ask if they were serving their all day menu also. Was told yes but when we arrived and I asked for the regular menu we were told that only the brunch menu was available! Would not have gone on a Sunday!

    An excellent and very popular place. Highly recommend the appetizers of Copps Island Oysters and Prosciutto, Fig and Asparagus. Don't want a huge steak? Unbelievably great alternatives are Chicken Scarpiello and Veal Valdostano.

    I love coming to this restaurant! I have dined here several times and it’s for several reasons. The consistency of the food quality is bar none, the servers are awesome and genuine, the owner takes pride in every aspect, and it’s always clean. I recently celebrated my daughter’s birthday there and put a note in the comment section when making the reservation to please give her her favorite dessert with a sparkler in it as a surprise. I didn’t even have to remind anyone about the note because the owner told our server and she gave me a subtle wink after our entrees to let me know that she knows about the dessert. She came out with it in the opposite side from where my daughter was looking so that she was genuinely surprised. For me the thought and effort to do something that might seem small to some was huge to me. The kindness and appreciation was not unnoticed. I will most definitely go back!!

    We went here as a Bon voyage for my son who was going off to college. I was impressed by the staff and service overall as one should expect at a restaurant at this price point. The decor is fine, I don’t think it’s anything special and the food is very good. Why not “great”? The NY strip at $55 was a really well cooked steak, but very simple in its flavoring. For some this would be the perfect touch, I think we prefer just a bit more. The ribeye was executed much better with a nice char and a lot more flavor. If I could give 4.5 out of 5 I would as I thought the overall experience was a really nice night out. Again, the staff is a “5” and provide value for the dollars spent.

    One member of our party was handicapped and we were placed in a location requiring a long walk. Pretty dumb. We ate early and arrived early, so the restaurant was fairly empty. Next they seated a single woman with a baby next to us so we were faced with a crying baby despite the empty status at that time. We wished to talk before ordering food and were asked time after time if we were ready to order. Finally we were told we would have to leave by a certain time in a tone that was demanding. While the food was good, it was highly overpriced and I will likely choose another place to eat for my next meal.

    Was greeted and welcomed at the door by Webster who allowed us our choice of table. Our Server Scott was polite, efficient, fun, and professional. The food was outstanding! We enjoyed the Masa Fried Oysters, Tiger Shrimp, Spinach and Artichoke dip for our appetizers, and everything was delicious and fresh. Our entrees were excellent. I had the Ahi Tuna Steak that was to die for, and my husband had the Australian Lobster Tail that was cooked perfectly. Their use of fresh spices and ingredients was evident in every dish. We also had the creamed spinach. For dessert we couldn't decide so we shared their Key Lime pie, Bananas Foster cake & Chocolate Truffle Bomb. The wine list is extensive. It was one of the Best Restaurants I've been to in a long time. Definitely worth the drive!

    Not our first time there, but they continue to provide a special experience! Tuna tartare - delicious Peach arugula salad - delicious Bone marrow- yummy! Four Gras special - yummy also (alas could have eaten two more portions) Oysters - well shucked, no shell bits to spit out!👍🏻 Sat on the patio on a beautiful late summer evening. A bit of street noise to deal with but still a great experience. Our server Webster(?) was attentive and enthusiastic on a busy Saturday.
