Union Station is spectacular, you really must go inside, wander around and take in the place. After that, make a stop at Pierpont's. We did not eat here but the bartenders were such great guys and combined with the majestic look of the place, it deserved a review. Many bartenders know their stuff but these guys were veterans and exceptional!... More

Generally, I'm a fast food/chain restaurant guy, but thanks to a Groupon, I had the opportunity to indulge in some truly fine dining. Even with the Groupon, my bill still came to more than twice what I usually pay, but it was worth it. I had my favorite, rack of lamb. It was perfectly done and delicious. The portion was... More

interesting choices. hot delicious loaf of bread brought before the meal. "small" salads were not small at all. Best Caesar salad I've ever had. Portabella mushroom sandwich was amazing. Taste and textures made every bite delicious. The wine choices were interesting and priced very modestly. The service was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and extra staff kept our... More

The food is excellent and the service attentive without being obtrusive, The bartenders are pros and not just beer and blender specialists. Good wine list with a wide range of pricing. For a quick meal or appetizers and drinks, the bar area in fine but... More

It is a beautiful restaurant with ok food. There are better steak house but none with better architecture. Has a good happy hour and is worth that just to see the building.

We decided on the tasting menu with wine pairings and were not disappointed. The blue crab bisque and calamari with flash fried spinach were excellent. I tried the beet salad with goat cheese and the stuffed lobster tail and my husband enjoyed the ancho chili coffee rubbed steak followed by creme brulee. The wine pairings complimented each course and not... More
