    The service wasn’t all that for the 20% gratuity they slap on. The server literally asked once how we were doing and I had to hunt him down multiple times to get drinks and start the Valentine’s Day menu. Food was amazing, but I had to ask for a different steak due to it being undercooked. Overall a 4/5 it is a good date night, but service kinda stunk the experience up for us.

    I love Washington Prime, good food and amazing service. Not expecting for the check to include 20% gratuity on Valentine' Day just because when you're only serving 2 people but I get it. Other than that, it was great.

    Ive been to a lot of steakhouses in my time. You know going in that you are going to be paying more than most things are worth, but expect flawless execution and great customer service as a result. I’m sad to say that I got neither. Most of the food was mediocre — not worth the extreme markups. Bacon and salads were a bit above average, but porterhouse was mid for the cost. Sauces (which they charge extra for, were overly sweet or far too salty). Drinks also used subpar mixers - again not worth the markup. But the worst was the customer service. We had a very early table for 4 with two kids. We asked politely if we could be seated at a booth and were told they were reserved for parties with 5 and they would all be filled by 6pm. At 5:30 a party of 3 was seated at one of the booths. By 6:30, when we were leaving, one of the booths was still vacant. When we asked about the party of 3, one of the owners made an excuse (“they had two people in the party get sick”), but that didn’t explain why they still were seated in the booth. Save your money and go to a steakhouse that does it right, like capital grille. This place isn’t worth the $$$.

    Wonderful experience overall! The space has a great vibe, our server was funny, knowledgeable and extremely welcoming. The food was beyond perfection. I came for the beef wellington and was not disappointed! My wife had a Thai style cioppino which was cooked beautifully with some of the best ingredients. The honey calamari is not to be missed! the cocktails were unique and delicious and the menu as a whole had far too many good options. Parking was easy and inexpensive, really enjoyed my experience overall. I would come back here for any celebration, for me personally it is not exactly affordable for a random night out but a great choice for a special occasion.
