This was my third time and honestly, the experience was a bit disappointing. Seems some of the dishes were prepared ahead and sitting under lights. The popovers came to our table cold and deflated, and dessert tasted from freezer burn...not what I expected from a fine eaterie. That being said, the ambience and service was just perfect, but I might think twice before returning.

The date night menu was such great value. The food was amazing! We enjoyed everything we ordered, including David Burke’s signature clothesline bacon, which went so well with the Caesar salad. Ray Perry was an outstanding waiter, so friendly and attentive!

Excellent service and atmosphere. Went here for my wife and my anniversary and couldn't be happier with our pick. My wife had the octopus and scallops, and I had the 20 oz Ribeye. We had sides of creamed spinach, corn off the cob, and peaches with spinach. All of it delicious! Highly recommend for date night, special occasions, or that fine dining itch.

Rachel our server was magnificent! She made our experience everything! When I first arrived at the restaurant I was told my reservation would be outside when I made sure not to select outdoors bc I prefer not to eat outside. This was for my birthday and this wasn’t a great first impression; hostesses weren’t friendly. I’m very thankful that we were sat in Rachael’s section!!

We’ve been here several times but the last 2 times the service was really bad. We sat for about 20-30 minutes before anyone even came over to take our drink order. I don’t know if they are understaffed or what but it was just really slow and the servers were inattentive. Plus, we couldn’t even sit in the main dining room we were basically in the lobby. I don’t think we’ll be going back again.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Expected and received an excellent experience. The only draw back was unfortunately the food. My wife asked for her burger to be done medium, it came out very well done. My very pricey rib eye, a specialty of the house, was also over temp. Supposed to be mid rare, came out medium. That aside we had a fantastic time and will come back. Our waiter was fantastic, he kept us entertained and let the evening unfold at a relaxing pace. I should mention that the burger was taken off the bill.

A very nice romantic special occasion dinner! Had the clothesline bacon, crab cake, short rib pasta, and rib eye with side of creamed spinach. Everything was delicious. Service was excellent and they took our entire order at once and timed everything out in the kitchen. It was perfect.

Very nice outdoor area on the patio. Loved the ambience .
It was a little confusing about switching reservation from inside to outside ( it was a gorgeous night and the patio was picture and weather perfect ) after everyone was on the same page , it was a fantastic evening . Our waitress was just delightful .

We truly are so proud of our terrace but more so as delighted as you are that you had the opportunity to spend an evening out there. Though our outdoor seating is first come, first served, we encourage you to let us know your preference when making a reservation as we do our best to make sure all of our guests are as happy as can be.

We had a party of six, service was great sat outside under new roof top patio. Food was good (oysters were fresh nice addition with peach mignonette, tuna tartare is always the best on app menu,. We ordered NY Strip which was thin and looked like a rib eye cut. Not what was expected. We’ve had it before when they first opened and it was fantastic. Now they are cutting back. Would rather go to traditional steak house if you want a good cut of steak. Bronzino was perfect, hipster fries always good, ordered a new entree BBQ ribs with prawns with chipotle like grits. It was a large portion with two large prawns that were fresh can be shareable. For dessert we ordered their signature Clothesline Bacon and two scoops of vanilla ice cream which was a hit. Everyone took their scissor cuts and added a tablespoon of ice cream on top for a sweet/savory dessert.

Lovely appointed restaurant with terrific service. Food was outstanding. Very pricey. Given the high prices it think it is poor that they add 3.5% to the bill for using a credit card. The bar was great with well trained bartenders. As we were leaving there was a DJ in the bar area. It was very loud. I wouldn’t hang out there after dining if the DJ was playing. Despite the prices o will recommend it and return for a great meal in an inviting atmosphere.

Great interiors and the Himalayan salt theme can be seen all over. Food was top notch including some cool desserts
The only thing which needs some improvements are training the servers to show them how to serve in a upscale restaurant

Ordered 2 glass of wine rose followed by white and the server was poring in the same wine glass.. that’s a no no

I ordered the Garganelli Bolognese and was quite disappointed. It was simply penne and the bolognese had the carrots and other ingredients ON the pasta, not in the sauce. It wasn't great. We went for a stroll afterwards and were told that we weren't allowed to walk on the property...this by a gang of workers smoking marijuana in a pool of smoke that nearly choked us. Not impressed.

Very good food and excellent service. I was disappointed with the atmosphere. Dining room is very close and a bit noisy. I expected a more intimate setting. The first table the hostess offered us was in the muddle of everything… waiters and diners constantly going by on both sides. We declined that and waited 20 minutes past our reservation time for another table. Although the room design is very nice the way the tables are situated reminds me of restaurants that don’t claim to be as upscale.

We were meant to celebrate an engagement which I noted on reservation. That never happened. There were several mistakes made on our order and our waiter a bit flustered so I didn’t bother to call it out. Food was delicious but w tax and gratuity it was $800 which seemed high. I would recommend for special occasion (although I’d tell them personally at restaurant rather than assume it will be done via note on reservation). But be prepared so she’ll out a bit of money. Ambience is great and presentation of food phenomenal.
