Good place for steak before theater across from Private Bank Theater. Very vibrant bar scene that makes a quiet dinner not possible. But good food and service.

Crowded with before theater crowd but service was quick and orders delivered promptly. Reservations a must with Hamilton across the street. Noise level a bit challenging but we were lucky enough to secure a booth so that helped. Dinner salad was excellent.

Sat in bar, 65% empty, but took 10 minutes to get any other human to notice I was there. A wee bit unorganized. Could it be my cologne?!! Ordered onion soup, filet, and grilled. asparagus. Dinner rolls good. Overall food very good.worth a return trip.

Located from the Private Bank Theatre, the staff was great! The drink menu was designed to compliment the popular musical. It included a federalist wine list and specialty drinks including a Brandy Alexander Hamilton! The cheese board is a treat and the creme brûlée can't...More
