Was supposed to meet with a pal for drinks, ended up here for dinner. Great value, but you pay for it. Had a few stoli dolis, great drinks!!! The Bone in Kona was one of the best steaks I've ever had and the lobster mac and cheese was awesome!

Thank Lou S

We had dinner here last night for the first time and were very pleased.
The restaurant is well appointed and relaxed. The music was a bit loud, however.
We made our reservation on Open Table and were seated immediately.
We were promptly greeted by our server who inquired of our first names. The ensuing service was excellent and personal.
The menu is extensive and includes calorie counts for each dish.
The bread basket had multiple varieties including delicious pumpernickel raisin and onion bread.
The appetizers were large and our table of four shared fried calamari and prosciutto wrapped mozzarella which was grilled and served with balsamic vinegar and yellow and red grape tomatoes. Both dishes were delicious.
For entrees two of us had Parmesan crusted sole with an excellent crab and avocado salad that had large pieces of lump crab. Another had the rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked. I had sliced filet mignon with wild mushrooms and sweet cipollini onions. We also ordered a side of creamed spinach which was wonderfully seasoned with the perfect amount of nutmeg.
The restaurant has an extensive wine list and a large cellar which is visible from the dining area.
I can not comment on desert as we did not have room.
The restaurant is not inexpensive but the service, dining experience, and quality of the food offset the price.
We look forward to returning to try other items on the menu.

it was a belated birthday celebration and we made early dinner reservations before it got too crowded. Low key, relaxing atmosphere with excellent service. we shared a spinach salad which was fresh with large pieces of bacon (unusual but good). I had the grouper with 2 jumbo shrimp(a special). Grouper was excellent but the shrimp were undercooked. Sent it back and received overcooked shrimp with no seasoning. Myhusband had steak which he is still happily talking about. The truffle fries were excellent as was the cheesecake with berries. They also have an extensive beer menu. Was surprised with the number of young children in the restaurant and how poorly behaved they were. At a nearby table there was a crying baby. For the high prices we paid, it would have been nicer not to hear noisy children. Perhaps eating at a later hour will solve that issue or management could do a better job managing!

We went here on Saturday night for my birthday and I was not disappointed! The food was on the verge of amazing, and the wine list was out of this world!!! For our appetizer we shared the Lobster and Crab Cakes which were very tasty. We both had the Dry Aged Steak au Poivre with Courvoisier Cream as an entrée with Lobster Mac n Cheese and Creamed Corn with Bacon. Everything was outstanding!! The ambiance is very romantic and classy, service was courteous and attentive to every detail. The manager offered us a glass of champagne on the house at the end of our meal, which I thought was a nice touch!! It is a nice place to enjoy a special occasion. We will return in the future!

Nice ambiance,possibly some what pretentious for some of us. The filet mignon was excellent and the chopped salad was good. My dessert, simply vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, was horrible. I sent it back and told the waiter to either open a fresh ice cream, or forget it. The problem was quickly dealt with. Service generally was good. The price point, high.
