Met and interviewed a potential employee over dinner. Good service and good food. Our waitress (Kelly) was attentive but not intrusive. Nice menu.

All I can say is OMG...the food was TERRIFIC, the service was PHENOMENAL. Chris, the manager, is awesome. We were having our yearly couples outing and I requested 2 tables. When I got there, the tables were not together, needless to say, I asked them to make it possible for everyone to sit together and they did just that. The... More

My dining experience was great!!! Everything we ordered was amazing. The Mexican White Queso was our starter. Then we all ordered one pork tenderloin, one prime rib, and one Cajun ribeye. We all tried a little piece from each meal and we loved every bite!!! We can't wait to visit this restaurant again! It's very important that you make reservations... More

Eat at this restaurant all the time and usually am very impressed. Last night, food was good, but evening was marred by server arguing with one of our group's members. Server spilled grrease from one of the plates on our friends head and hair. While this was an accident, the only response was to get her a wet towel. No... More

It's hard to find great steak sandwich in Jacksonville but this is the place - especially if you want a great Bloody Mary to go with it! J. Alex is the best with a generous portion of prime rib cooked just right on chewy roll and dollop of horseradish. I don't personally care for Mac & Cheese, but my wife... More

I reserved this restaurant hoping for an incredible meal to ccelebrate my sons birthday. I was so very disappointed. The restaurant appears to be high quality, but alas no vegetarian meal choice except a boring dish of grilled vegetables. When will restaurants learn to at least offer one interesting choice. The wait staff was all over our table all night,... More

I don't go often, but when I do I wonder why it took me so long. Relatively upscale modern without being too trendy. Worth a visit.
