We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying at. This is an excellent establishment with outstanding service and first class food. The owner Matt was so welcoming. Emma and Micah were outstanding hostesses and we felt so at home and loved the...tour Emma gave us of the building. Cant wait to come back and try the Sushi. Everyone should visit this beautiful restaurant.More

The steaks were awesome as always! We much prefer Third and Main to their more fancy/stuffy competition downtown. We splurged on the Japanese Waygu Filet and it was easily the best steak we have ever eaten.

Was excited to give this place a try and had looked at their menu online. We arrived on time for our dinner reservation they went to west us at our table but it had not been bussed. We stood there as the server or person...seating us began to clear it off and then she disappeared. As we stood there awkwardly waiting while other guest ate, we noticed other clean tables and asked our returning server/ hostess if we could sit at another table .., she replied “I’ll have to ask the hostess I just don’t know” and she disappeared again. We asked another server in the area and same answer but stated “it’s for a reservation and my reply well we had a reservation. Finally someone allowed us to sit at another table. The menus were on the table on a diner style paper sheet so ok these Covid days things change. What we noticed was this menu was different than that on their website. We noticed it was a Valentines Day menu but had 95% of the items but add 20%. In my opinion sort of unprofessional unless they are offering something special but it wasn’t. The sever was somewhat rude. Ask us if we wanted something g to drink and as we are replying he stands there and starts talking to the customers sitting behind us and has a conversation with them. Totally ignores us but then returns eye contact with us and takes our order. We figure out he’s the owner/chef so they are probably having a tough time getting staff. No worries as this is the norm these days. In the end, we wished he had just stayed in the kitchen, not focused on us, multiple times we are talking to him about our order and he just starts to ficus on another table. The food was goid . We ordered the 3rd and Main Flight ($190) which is 3 various steaks, mashed potatoes and asparagus. Enough food for dinner and take home other than the mashed potatoes which were enough for one. We were hoping for bread but they only serve as an appetizer for $8 and the server/owner/chef stated we’d have enough food and not to order but it wasn’t on the Valentines menu anyway. We finished with mason huge key lime pie we shared but lacking of solid key lime flavor. The bottom line is this is a very expensive place to eat but they way you are treated and the ambience it’s more like an outback. I’d venture to a steakhouse in Cincinnati versus here and we won’t return. The steaks are expensive even if you don’t get the flight it will be $50-75/steak. We were disappointed and just left feeling odd about the place.More

Where to start, this place is extremely overated and not at all fine dining or worth the money. I say fine dining because if you have $300 steak on your menu and the average plate price is about $60, thats fine dining. My wife and...I decided to try it out based on reviews over the weekend before heading to the casino. We were super excited upon arriving and thats where it all stopped. We walk in and are greeted by a hostess who asked for our name then instructed us to find some stairs thru the bar and head upstaris to the other hostess station. Sure, I will find my own way thru the bar, whatever. We made it upstairs, no hostess, no hostess station, we finally see someone with an I-pad. We are again asked for our name and told to go stand in the hallway out of the way, her exact words by the way. So we moved over to a tiny hallway squeezed up against a wall while staff and patrons squeezed by us. We stood there for several minutes to have someone else with an I-pad ask our names..again. Mind you they all are wearing radios and appear ot be talking to each other. A couple more minutes go by and the hostess and the owner proceed to argue about seating while standing in front of us. He finally says to her "I don't really care where you put them just put them out there" the server says to him "so just to be clear I am takng them up there" he said "thats fine whatever". I am sorry but we usually go to Tony's or Ruby's or Jags and this would have never happened in front of customers. Totally unprofessional, almost as much as the attire of all the staff there. The hostess grabs us and ushers us .....outside to the patio. We are heading to the casino so my wife is dressed for dinner, basically a shorter dress sleeveless. Anyone with any sense of what they are doing would never sit us outside, on a patio covered in PLASTIC that is not attached and is blowing cold air in. It was so cold I had to go to the car to get a coat for my wife to wear. But we were willing to deal with it for 2 reasons. 1, we thought the food would be worth it. 2. we didn't really have time to go grab anything else other that fast food. We should have done that it would have been better. We stresseed our unhappiness about the seating and the plastic. Sorry but if I am dropping over $150 for dinner I do not want to be seated on some dive bar patio covered in loose plastic. But we did get a good view of the staff washing glasses and singing.....outside in the side court. Yes they were washing glasses outside in the side court in a bucket of water on a picnic table. We are waiting on our food, wife wearing a coat and the owner is standing behind her talking to a couple saying how its 70 degrees out there and it is working out great, it was actually in the mid 60's. Mind you other people were complaining about the temp as well. My wife turns over her shoulder to him amd says "uh no its cold, im wearing a coat". He continued to brag about it and she repeates herself. He turned his back to her ot block what she was saying to the other couple. At this point in time we have decided to stay because we wanted to taste the food and also to see how much worse it could get, it was becoming comical at this point in time. I;m sure it was warm to the owner while he wears pants, a shirt, a jacket....oh and baseball cap and tennis shoes, you know really professional for fine dining. But you would think that the owner who likes to brag so much would immediately come to our table to see how he could help. BTW we were told there were no tables inside, even thought there were several empty tables inside when we arrived and all night. But no he did not. Again being someone who does eat at great steakhouses with excellent service, I assure you this would not have happened. So now lets get to the food, horrible and I could have, and have, gotten a better steak at Outback. I ordered the Australian Wagyu 6 oz, it had been overseared and the outside tasted like the burnt from an old iron skillet, I ate half. We were done at this point in time and just wanted to leave. Waitress knew we weren't happy but cared not at all. This place wants to be high end, but is a Ponderosa at best. Save yourself time and just go to Ruby's or even Flame at the casino. This is a half a** attempt at fine dining, probably great if this is the best you have ever had, but again I have had better steak at a family BBQ. If I buy a $60 Australian Wagyu steak I expect it to no be cooked incorrectly and not have to saw thru it with a knife, literally saw thru it. We paid our bill and left with a lesson we will not make again. we expressed kindly we were not happy vyt decided to stick it out. We were curious to see if after all the garbage the server would do somethign, anythign to make it right, nope not at all. Again next time I will go to Tony's where I dont even need a knife. Oh and our shoes stuck to the carpet, horrible. But I am sure this money grab will run its course.More

Wife and I and friends had dinner here on Saturday night. We arrived a bit early from our reservation time, but we were seated immediately. We ate outside. There were musicians playing both inside and outside. Most of us had steak (their specialty), and one...had the seafood pasta. All was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it. We’ll be back!More

Sat down with a party of 2. Took about 10minutes for the server to get to us even though he only had 1 other table. I asked about the menu as it was our first time here. He explained the scallops were served with 4...and total weight about 1/2 pound. Two entrees came out (the halibut pasta was good) and the scallops only came out with 3 on the plate and smaller than what server described) Server nowhere to be seen. By this time our drinks are empty and I have questions about my plate. Fifteen more minutes go by and still no server. We finish the past plate and appears our server. He says, "Everything perfect I'm guessing?" Not a chance. We have been out of drinks, the scallops are not what you said they were and I'm not happy with the plate. Off he goes and next thing you know there is another guy in front of us. Does not introduce himself but instead says, "heard there's a problem here?" We explain the situation and he says in a snotty voice, "sorry about your issues, let me take 25% off your bill", and off he goes. When we received the bill only 10% was taken off. What a joke of a manager. We also never say our server again as we guess he was hiding in the back. If you are thinking about going here, I would skip it and go somewhere else that has hospitality.More

Went there today for lunch woth a friend. Was seated quickly enough, wasnt overly busy at 12:30. My friend and I both got the salmon sandwich with sweet potato fries. It was pretty good, although the bun swallowed the salmon. I cut my bun in...half. My husband had the wings and they were gross. Suppose to be dry rubbed, they werent. Skin was rubbery and they couldve been cooked a bit more. Wouldnt get those again. Atmoshphere was good and service was good.More

Greeted by a sweatshirt/blue jean-clad hostess - placed us near the door right next to another couple - the restaurant was empty!! We had reservations and she rudely indicated all the other tables were taken. Instinct was to leave at that point. - Should have!!...The pasta from heaven was a gelatinous pile of pasta with a few pieces of seafood - no plate was provided for the shells. The steak was delicious - but the mashed potatoes with a dried piece of rosemary stuck in the middle were a reheated/starchy mess, and some limp asparagus to finish off a very expensive meal. Social distancing is not being observed in this restaurant - and several staff do not cover their noses with their masks. If you want to spend upwards of $150 for a meal (not including a tip which was difficult to give) - go to Ruby's where you're sure to be treated to a delicous meal, appropriately attired waitress, hospitable hostess, and proper social distancing of the tables.More
