This is a nice restaurant for dinner with a good variety of selections on the menu. The service was very good with no wait to be seated on a Sunday night. The food was excellent and reasonably priced.

I have always wanted to try this restaurant but could not see paying such a high price for food. Today we went for lunch which was more reasonably priced. I had the millionaires steak sandwich with fries and he had the grilled salmon with orzo and wild rice pilaf. They were both delicious. He also had the mushroom soup. Not... More

Impromptu dinner with friends. We don't do this restaurant very often but when we do we're never disappointed. Last nights dinner was great as usual! The wait if you don't have reservations can be a little long. However libations from the bar help. We started off with our favorite mandarin orange flights! Sooo tasty. Bar staff is very attentive and... More

Great bar atmosphere. I was able to set at the bar and got great service. Good people watching. I would like to come back for dinner as the menu looked enticing.

We showed up on a Friday night without a reservation and was told we could be seated in 30 minutes but after checking once and then twice, after an hour, we left without eating. I know it's tough to estimate when a table will be ready but even after the hour long wait, we were not at the top of... More

I had the filet mignon and my husband had the Kansas Strip. I loved my filet and my husband liked his strip, though once he tasted mine, he wished he had also ordered a filet. We shared a house salad, minus the bacon, cheese and croutons - and enjoyed that too. We had a total of 3 drinks on the... More

Ahi tuna is always good but can be better. Server did not ask, and I should have asked for the tuna to be rare. So, I was a little disappointed to receive a medium serving. Not one to complain, I still enjoyed my dinner with the very tasty smashed potatoes. I must mention that we started with Smoked Salmon Dip... More

Excellent wait staff and my steak cut like butter. My husband devoured his steak tacos. Ambiance is cool but a little too dark for my liking. The wait seemed long.

Always tough to get in especially on the weekend, but once we were given a time, we were seated pretty close to on time. The service is great. We had to send back warm beers and they graciously replaced. Food is excellent and very appealing. The steaks cooking was a little off but not enough to not enjoy.

I absolutely love steak! And think no one can cook it better then my husband. But this place was absolutely amazing. Had a client dinner here and it was wonderful. They had wine on the table when we arrive! Best services and great food!
