Steak was substandard, service left alot to be desired. So as a steak restaurant, thumbs down. As a hipster (pretentious) bar/hookup joint, go for it. Look for a good steak and good service elsewhere.

OK, so I just ate here because I was in the area for business and wanted a steak place. I'm never sure whether to give a place a 4 or 5 rating because it means different things to different people. To me, a 5 rating doesnt mean its the best place I have EVER eaten at, it simply means that... More

I always wanted to give this place a try, after trying it, and seeing the bill, the steaks are absolutely not worth it. They are on the same price level as top tier steakhouses and this place doesnt come close. I think they are more on the outback level. I would never return to this place. I can make a... More

A special birthday dinner ruined. Website dress code apparently doesn't apply to "friends" of management who were seated in sweatsuits. A two hour marathon to order two steaks and sides, which ended up presented raw (red and cold center) vs medium rare ordered. Asparagus side was ice cold too. Staff seemed too care little over patrons long waits or food... More

Pre-dinner drinks were amazing! These guys really know how to mix up a Martini. The food was awesome. Steak right on! Creamed spinach was delicious! As well as the Bacon appetizer!

Went for my birthday. The appetizers and bread were delicious..the dinner just average. Everything is a la carte so it can get pricey, but you can share. The service was very good..but this was a Wed. evening. Not sure how it would be on a weekend. I would certainly try it again.

We heard mixed reviews about this place and were a bit hesitant to make a reservation. However, we decided to give it a shot. We were a bit annoyed that they required valet parking at 7:30pm when the lot was basically empty. Not a big deal, since at that point, it was complimentary. However, starting at 9pm, the cost is...

My husband and I made a last minute decision for date night. We have passed this restaurant for years. This time we said we would go and made a reservation. We were not disappointed. After the valet took our cars, we went in and our table was ready, but they they were gracious enough to ask us if we wanted... More
