This wasn't a pleasant experience and that is why I go out to eat, especially with friends but when your night out is ruined by a rude staff and horrible service, it just sucks. Our waitress failed to bring us waters, was so late with our appetizers they arrived cold (and tasteless) and they were overall difficult. Will not be... More

My experience in this restaurant is as follows: When arriving we were greeted by a hostess that didnt know in which table to place us. The place was kind of empty since it was an early dinner and we got a table away from the windows on the seocnd floor. We were told the other tables were reserved. Well interesting... More

The wait staff took some convincing about my need for a gluten free diet - seems they were unaware of coeliac / celiac disease and the strict need for a gluten free diet. Once that was rectified and the kitchen agreed it was able to provide a meal - everything was fine. It was a battle to educate the staff... More

We went here for nye...paid $160 each for what we thought would be a lovely evening with friends. But unfortunately had a horrible start to 2014. Let me preface this by saying I had NO alcohol all day and no drinks at dinner aside from water so I definitely was by no means drunk. The menu started off with an... More

What an amazing place, wonderful atmophere and staff. Our waiter was caring and helpful. All decided to have the 1855 Black Angus. That was the right choice, the meat was... More

Most enjoyable. The company we were with were also very pleasant and good friends. The service was truly exceptional for these times of get in, eat and get out. The waiters seemed to CARE and were responsive to any comment or question. The menu choices were very elaborate and sophisticated. The also came with what we considered surprises, like relatively...

We arrived fairly early at 6:45 on a Saturday night. The first thing you see is the beautiful bar with beautiful people sitting and sipping martinis. There weren't many diners there yet and we were led to a quiet table in the corner. The restaurant is beautiful with romantic lighting and tall ceilings and lots of tall windows. The servers... More
