Can't praise this steak and chop house enough. I had a locally grown ribeye that was perfectly prepared. We are at the bar as we did not have reservations but were able to sit at a table for 2 early on a Friday evening. The mixologist prepared a Bramble and a Palomino that were complex in flavors and a wonderful... More

This restaurant is perfection personified. Everything was perfect from the choices on the menu and wine selections to the efficient and charming waiters. The filet and the corn and asparagus were amazing. Can hardly wait to go back.

Everything here was top notch! The service was excellent and we were provided with amazing suggestions. I got the scallops and they were melt in your mouth delicious! I highly, highly recommend. It is rather expensive, so we will have to save this place for special occasions, but would definitely like to go back!

Very attractive interior. We were seated upstairs. Our server, Billy, was charming, efficient, and informative. The pork belly appetizer was great. The Greek salad was quite large and tasty. My husband enjoyed the huge Porterhouse steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus. I had the scallops with chevre mac n cheese and asparagus. We shared the honey cake dessert. The scallops... More

I chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration with family based on prior reviews and am glad I did! Everything was perfect. From the parking valet attendant to the hostess and wait staff, everyone was welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu options we chose were highlighted as locally sourced and ranged from beef to fish. Everything was deliciously prepared, not... More

My husband and I dined here recently to celebrate his birthday. Everything was impeccable! The food was prepared perfectly and the presentation was beautiful. Our waitress, Whitney, was excellent! She was very attentive and quite helpful in reviewing the menu and wine list. All in all, it was an amazing birthday celebration! Thank you.

The food was prepared and presented beautifully. The service was friendly and knowledgeable . We each had the fillet which was perfectly cooked to medium rare, the accompanying sauces and toppings were such a great opportunity to blend flavors. Interesting cocktails(second honeymoon appropriate as we were celebrating our anniversary)

The best part of the meal was the fried oyster appetizer, the sauce was amazing. Our family consensus was that the steaks were not what we preferred. They were cooked to the correct doneness, but we prefer a more seared exterior and these were soft like they were baked rather than broiled. Overall the service was good and the interior... More

I love the food here, and the service is always excellent. The food is a little pricey but absolutely worth it. I've eaten on the bar side as well, and that menu is also great and a bit cheaper. This is our main go-to spot for special occasions.

A great place to eat with helpful service, magnificent food and stylish building. We sat at the bar prior to our reservations, drinks were spot on. We sat for dinner on time with our reservation. We order salads, filet mignon, scallops, with sides and dessert. Our waitress, Cory, did a superb job waiting on our table. We would definitely recommend... More
