Birthday Dinner

Went for my birthday. The appetizers and bread were delicious..the dinner just average. Everything is a la carte so it can get pricey, but you can share. The service was very good..but this was a Wed. evening. Not sure how it would be on a weekend. I would certainly try it again.

A special birthday dinner ruined. Website dress code apparently doesn't apply to "friends" of management who were seated in sweatsuits. A two hour marathon to order two steaks and sides, which ended up presented raw (red and cold center) vs medium rare ordered. Asparagus side was ice cold too. Staff seemed too care little over patrons long waits or food... More

Pre-dinner drinks were amazing! These guys really know how to mix up a Martini. The food was awesome. Steak right on! Creamed spinach was delicious! As well as the Bacon appetizer!

We heard mixed reviews about this place and were a bit hesitant to make a reservation. However, we decided to give it a shot. We were a bit annoyed that they required valet parking at 7:30pm when the lot was basically empty. Not a big deal, since at that point, it was complimentary. However, starting at 9pm, the cost is...

My husband and I made a last minute decision for date night. We have passed this restaurant for years. This time we said we would go and made a reservation. We were not disappointed. After the valet took our cars, we went in and our table was ready, but they they were gracious enough to ask us if we wanted... More

Loved everything we had! Sushi rolls are gigantic and delicious. The calamari was so tasty!! I had a steak special, and my husband had a burger. Everything was absolutely yummy. However, we came on a Thursday night and it was practically dead and yet everything came out so slow. Can't imagine how it would be if it was busy. We... More

We went for dinner; I had the "Filet Tip Risotto" while my date had "Scallops With Risotto" and for an app we had the "Kobe Meatball". All three dishes were very good along with very good professional service from the staff. Would definitely go again.
