Recently went there for dinner and the food was amazing. I wouldn't consider it "American" food, I would say it is more 'Asian with a flare' type food so make sure to look at the menu first. I had the Wok Cashew Chicken & Broccoli entree and Creme Brulee (I know, odd mix but I couldn't resist). Food was amazing, staff was also amazing, and the restaurant itself felt like a nice NY lounge. The bar/club upstairs "Level 2" was also a ton of fun!

We wandered in on a Thursday night in October before a concert. The ambiance was funky and fun, and the staff were friendly in a sincere way. We weren't really dressed for a nice place, but were treated very well. All of the food was excellent, but the Kobe beef sliders were amazing. There were two of us and three sliders, so be sure to order two if you need an even number! Wow. The dessert - some chocolatey thing with oozing filling - was also terrific. As said in other reviews, pricey, but well worth it.

The food was amazing, and while it was a bit pricey, it was worth it! We had the Pan Seared Sea Scallops for an appetizer and they were melt in your mouth delicious. Our entrees were also incredible. If you want great food and great atmosphere, this is the place to go.

Feels a little bit like I'm in NYC when I'm here. the food is great and it's definitely a place where people like to be seen. If you're from a big city and want something that's more trendy then most Central PA restaurants, this is your spot.

This is one of my favorite places to eat while in Harrisburg. The food is amazing and the service is top notch. We got the fish tacos and chicken lettuce wraps. It's a pricey place to eat, but you get a great experience with the price.
