Best steak I have had in years. The restaurant is charming and the patio is the largest in the city. I will be back.

The place was beautiful but the food wasn't that great. Had the gnocchi and it didn't even taste like it. Our server was really friendly and explained the menu.

really beautiful atmosphere...if you're lucky the bartender will tell you all about the history of those great shelves behind the bar. it's a little dim upstairs, so bring a flashlight...the evening band is a nice touch. washrooms are kind of crazy little cubicles you have to experience to understand. service is good, not great. food is worth the wait.

The buidling and decor really is beautiful. Mountain high ceilings, contemporary decor, warm. Love love the patio with its comfortable couches, torches and outside bar. Its worth a visit even just for the Distillery District and history of the building. The menu is standard and a little pricy. Good wine list though. Portions aren't large but perfect if you are...

I would simply say it is too expensive for what you get. I agree the place is beautiful, but service and food are boring and the bill is huge.
