Wonderful evening

We had a memorable experience with the well trained wait staff and the excellent food. Plenty of space to enjoy a private date made it so that we want to return for another visit.

Steaks are top notch. Service is excellent and it has the best atmosphere in town, overlooking the city. Servers are well trained.

From the food to the service to the ambiance, this place hits the mark big time. It is one of the top 3 restaurants I have ever visited, and I have been to almost all 50 states.

From the moment our coats were checked, to the final bite of the chocolate cheese cake, my date and I had the most exquisite dining experience. This is the premier restaurant of Springfield, Illinois. Two thumbs up for the exceptional service and spectacular ambiance provided in the making of a date to never forget.

The best place to eat in 100 miles. They really know what they are doing. Try the lobster bisque and the seabass.

We have eaten here twice, the first time we had a table by the window and the views of Springfield were exceptional. The food was very good as was the service.

Hi Dferrill - thanks for taking the time to share your comments, and for visiting us more than once! Yes, a reservation is almost always needed on Friday and Saturdays and if you're hoping for a window table I would extend that advice to all nights and book in advance. Evidently there's not much else to offer in the way... More

Such a classy place... wonderful staff... amazing view. The food is expensive. Expect to pay a lot. We were offered sparking, distilled or tap water.. we chose distilled... not knowing that it was $10.00 for each bottle of water. $40.00 on water alone. A nice variety for food. Definitely a special occasion type of place.

Sorry about that big water bill.....I will reiterate with the service staff that it should be clear to our guests that there is an upcharge.

Food was good, Drinks were good. But the steaks are wet aged for 14 days. They practically melt in your mouth. I've had great steaks before but this is definitely in the top 5 of all time.

Hi Gene...thanks for the kudos. I also want to point out the 21 days of dry aging after the 14 days of wet aging might have something to do with the quality of our steaks, but the point is you called yours an "all time Top 5" and that's really all anyone needs to know, right?
