Everything from the service to the food to the drinks was amazing. Our waiter was excellent. The prices fir the amount of food was a little expensive but the food was delicious so I guess it works. Really enjoyed my date.

Came here for a Valentine’s Day dinner.
The appetizer was penne vodka which was good.
The main course was filet mignon... the steak was perfect (medium rare)
The waiters were so kind, even after an extremely busy day they didn’t rush us out the restaurant being that we were the last couple in the place. Very cute

Went here for my gf birthday. My only complaint was that they did not have the original menu on Vday since we had our mind set on the beef brisket appetizer. All in all it was good, will be returning God's willing.

I booked a reservation on valentines day weekend (not on valentines day in case that matters) for a birthday. Just 2 people.

My reservation was in the early evening and it rained that day so it was a quite cloudy and unfortunately did not get a great view of the city but that's totally fine and expected with the weather. The restaurant itself looked like a cheap wedding hall unfortunately. I know they do catering but for a restaurant with such high prices, I expected more.

It definitely looked like a cheap prom inside and any view you had was obstructed by the tarp outside for outdoor seating. The waiters were consistently moving tables and chairs around us. literally had a waiters butt 2 inches from my shoulder has he thought it was a good idea to shuffle seats so loudly and unorganized around people who are having dinner. I understand the need to move seats around (as i am not the only one with a reservation) but there is a way to do it.

Although some of the food was delicious (the veal was great and the appetizer ribs were tasty) it was way over priced for this place. Their bang bang strip was just cooked shrimp (no breading) with mayo and hot sauce mixed together on it. They try to justify charging you $12 for a side of fried because they come in a huge cone $60 entree that doesnt cover the plate.

This place seems like a great spot to come to for a happy hour and sit outside on a warm day with a view of the city but for a nice date night out, Id pass the next time around. Not what I expected.

It was my boyfriends birthday and i honestly expected more. They sat us in the middle of two other couples, there was no type of social distancing AT ALL. We asked to move, they moved us to a corner that had no view, and there were clearly better tables available.. The service was good he was attentive. But overall i expected much more. Food was also very mediocre, we asked for a well done tomahawk steak, and the inside was basically rare. Wouldn’t recommend for a birthday or even a date. I was embarrassed this is where i chose to celebrate his birthday.

Absolutely amazing! Celebrated my girlfriends 22nd birthday and had a wonderful experience. Our server Cosmo is the MAN! Courteous, friendly, responsive and most importantly attentive. Music was a good level, the aesthetic was beautiful and clean! My girlfriend and I went crazy with the appetizers and left full and satisfied. Will definitely be back and have recommended this place already to friends and colleagues.
