Chandler AZ has some pretty good restaurants. This is one. My husband and I ate at the bar, as we usually do. You usually get much better service plus fun conversation. Not necessarily the case here. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. We had the lobster, spinach, queso dip, which was very good with lots of lobster pieces. Then we had the sesame encrusted salmon with ginger mustard aioli, garlic mashed potatoes, and fried spinach--sounded very exciting. The fish was done very well, but the sauce really needed some zip. It was more like mayonnaise with a teeny tiny bit of something else (maybe mustard?)...it needed more of the ginger and mustard and maybe some lemon. The fried spinach was very interesting. Each leaf was fried and melted in your mouth--that was pretty cool.

As far as being at the bar, the bartender needed to learn to multi-task. He really couldn't make drinks and talk at the same time. He was very nice, but not a typical chatty bartender. In fact, he was making mojitos for other folks and couldn't manage to give us menus in between. When a second bartender arrived, she got us the menu. Not a big deal, but unusual at a bar.

If we lived here, we would most likely give it another shot.

Did not know what to expect when my sister in law suggested dinner here, but everyone at my table enjoyed their food. From salmon to steaks to the salads and side dishes the food was fresh prepared without fuss.
Cheers.

We've been to this location several times, most recently for our 24th anniversary dinner. This is essentially a steak and seafood place with a pleasant atmosphere indoors or out, attentive service and impeccably prepared food, much of it on a wood-fired grill without the "Oh my god can you believe these prices?" reaction you have at even higher-end steak houses like Ruth's Chris. It's miles above the McDonalds of steakhouse chains like Texas Roadhouse, Outback and Sizzler. The wine list is approachable and not egregiously over-priced.

We stopped in here around 9:30pm after a very busy evening. Surprisingly, they were still serving dinner and we were promptly seated. The atmosphere is dark, woodsy and comfortable. They have a bar with tvs but it is somewhat separate from the dining area which is much appreciated. (I hate when a nice dining experience is marred by large televisions broadcasting sports.) The service was excellent as was the wine list. We had a fantastic bottle of wine and ordered an appetizer of the lobster spinich queso. Shortly after she brought a large plate of bread. The bread was excellent and we realized upon receiving our entrees that we had far more food than we could eat. The lobster spinich queso was incredibly tasty but a bit too much on the buttery/greasy side. I had the Seseme Encrusted Salmon and my boyfriend had the Filet Mignon. Both really tasty, but again too much food for two people. We left satisfied and with to-go boxes. I didn't give it an excellent because this is not fine dining as the food wasn't 5 star and I can see how if the dining room were full (it was quite empty when we dined) it would be noisy and far from intimate. However, for a chain this is a really good place to eat with quality food and atmosphere. I just recommend that you arrive really hungry..or skip ordering the appetizer.
