My wife and I were taken to Stage Left by her brother and his wife as a late wedding gift. We were visiting from Virginia. The night out at Stage Left was unexpected. The ambiance of the place is upscale yet relaxed. We actually had our meal outside, where any attire is permitted. Neither my wife nor I had packed... More

Stage Left, by now, has become for us the first dinner on our way from Eastman Québec to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We go down taking our time in three days. We go back in two. We stay at the nearby Hyatt, reasonably priced, and within walking distance from Stage Left, so named, because it is next to... More

The good was over priced and not all too great. The staff kept spilling drinks and bumping into people. They tried being polite but seemed very unprofessional for the expensive place that it was.

Morel mushroooms in a perfect sauce and Jamon Iberico (sliced razon thin) to start, followed by a perfect Wagyu skirt steak delivered to the table on a raging hot block of Asian salt (yeah, cook it as you like it right there!) wrapping it up with robust coffee made our anniversary celebration special. We've been to Stage Left a few... More

I have eaten a couple times at Stage Left and each time has been great. The food is very good as well as the service. The restaurant itself is not that big so I would recommend making a reservation instead of just showing up hoping to find a seat. The burgers and steak were very good as well as the... More

Our party of 6 chose Stage Left for its proximity to the State Theater where we had tickets. Food was good to excellent but two hours was barely enough. We paid the bill and hustled out and could have used the Half hour it took to get our round of drinks. The steak off the day, which you finish cooking... More

My wife and I visited stage left while we in town for business. My wife had the special flank steak and loved it. It came with a heated salt block and she got to cook it to her liking. I on the other hands got the ribeye. Keep it mind that this is a $42 steak that doesn't include the... More

Stage Left used to be my go to place when I wanted a special meal out. But that was over 10 years ago. I stopped going when I started to hear about chef turnover and that aside from it's drinks and wine list, it had fallen a few rungs in quality. And it's a thirty minute drive from my home.... More
