We were seated promptly when we arrived by very friendly greeters. The food and beverage menus were more than adequate with a trend toward beef but other great dishes available. The service was attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed our experience and left feeling everyone there did too.

Our server was fantastic - knowledgeable, engaging, sensitive to the needs of his customers. Great wine suggestions. The tuna entree was out of this world. Congrats to the chef. Small plates were actually pretty big plates, tasty, but way too, and I mean too, salty - I almost thought two line chefs salted the same plate.

Excellent service, food and atmosphere, it was my 13th wedding anniversary with my lovely bride and it was a great experience, we felt very welcome and well taken care of. We decided on the Porterhouse steak for two and the steak was cooked perfectly. Everything was delicious and they provided a complimentary dessert of chocolate torte which was excellent.. great experience all around, we will definitely be back!!

Guess our expectations from reading reviews were misplaced. Small plates s are really just appetizers, thought would be more along the lines of Tapas. Entries very expensive for what they were. Braised short ribs dry, mushroom risotto was really mushy. However scallops were cooked to perfection! Shrimp and Calamari appetizer was delicious as well as duck egg rolls! Octopus small plate combination of olives and chickpeas green as not a favorite at all.
Maybe we ordered wrong.

This was our second visit since the reopening. Much improved meals & service. Food was spectacular. We had charcuterie small plate, pizzetta, octopus, petite filet, & a wise guys salad. Everything was terrific and the charcuterie plate & octopus were particularly outstanding.

We agreed, things are back to normal.

Thanksgiving dinner did not disappoint, the turkey was perfect, my husband’s prime rib delicious. Ashleigh took exceptionally good care of us.
Thanks to the whole team for a lovely evening.

You don't expect a home cooked dinner in a restaurant on a holiday. Our dinner far exceeded our expectations. Additionally, the service was prompt but did not feel rushed.

I have eaten here numerous times in the past and everything was outstanding!

However, they really blew it, with their Thanksgiving Meal. Food was lukewarm, portions were very small, and everything was overall uninspiring. Desert was terrible, and I think I got sick on the Lobster Bisque. It’s the only item my dining companions didn’t have that I had.

I will never ever return for a specialty meal.

But that aside, this is a dynamite restaurant on BBC a day to day basis.

Service was the biggest complaint. Hostess said table was ready but then she sat and talked to other hostesses to figure out what to do.

Waiter was not prompt. Asked for butter for bread and never arrived. Went to manager to get it. Water was only refilled once.

Cost seemed high for dinners

First time going to this restaurant. We were lucky to get a spot in the lounge on a busy evening before a holiday. We enjoyed the ambiance and the buzz from the bar. We were still able to have a conversation and overall liked the energy.

The food was very good and cocktails hit the mark. Our server was wonderful and checked on us multiple times. We will definitely be back!

Dinner was exceptional! I would skip the steaks, despite it being a steakhouse. Meatloaf is exceptional! But both the NY strip and filet were a bit tough and more fatty than expected for respective cuts. Also recommend the cauliflower and short rib slider apps.
Dining room was loud! Recommend requesting a booth if you want a more private, intimate experience.
Cocktails were meh.

This is the second time eating at Wis Guys, the first being several months back after they reopened. Enjoyed it more than the first time. Service was attentive and let us set the pace of dinner. Short rib stuffed mushrooms were awesome. Boulavardier was a great bourbon cocktail, and the steaks were delicious.

It was my first time back since the renovation and the space looks amazing — Open with a relaxing and romantic ambiance in the lounge. We ordered the steak carpaccio, octopus and lobster tail. Everything was delicious and the lobster tail was enormous. We will be back soon!
