Loved it! I love the concept, the decorating and the food. It is a very trendy restaurant but overpriced. I think people go for the experience more than the food.

Five of us had dinner there, great starters, then a 40 oz rib eye steak to share - we added some Alaskan Crab Claws because we thought the steak might not be big enough............ silly us! However still found space for a dessert (try the cinnamon donuts) Great ambience and the waiters were first class.

What an overrated, unpleasant experience. The staff is indifferent--bordering on arrogant--the food took forever to arrive and it was, at best, ordinary. Forget the hype and go to a restaurant that deserves your business. This place doesn't.

Went there for a dinner. Has a booked reservation but we had to wait for 15 or so for a table. The food was very tasty however we could not get a bottle or the Pol Roger champagne since wine sold by glass were for some ridiculous reason not sold by the bottle. The waiter did not come back and... More

From drinks to desert this place excels. Six of us had dinner there just before Thanksgiving. All of us cannot wait to go back. My Branzino was excellent. My daughter stated her duck was the best she had ever eaten.

Even though this restaurant has been around for a few years, I only just made my first visit. It's part of the wonder of living in a city where there are thousands of restaurants, with new ones popping up all the time, and taking years to finally visit one. And so, I finally made it to Saxon + Parole in the... More

Great ambience, good food and drinks. First time went for business dinner and everyone enjoyed. Next brought wife and a friend back. Shared the mushroom pot and barratta. Surprisingly contrary to popular demand I didn't like either, although it seem like it was just my pallet since the others among my party enjoyed. They just seems very bland and plain... More
