Service was good…our steak although cooked medium was like sawing into wood…even with the steak knives we were given it was difficult to slice and on the chewy side. French fries were very good. All in all for the price I expect better quality of meat!
Our server was pleasant and took back the wine my daughter did not care for and gave her a new one …no charge. That was appreciated!

Our server David was excellent! My beef tenderloin was excellent, my husband’s sirloin was a bit chewy. Caesar salad was very good enough for two to share.

Wonderful service excellent setting food quality and taste outstanding. Only downer is some of the portion sizes are a little bit small. But just leaves more room for yummy deserts or a specialty coffee 🤗

No ambience at all. Cold and sterile. No decorations. Medium steak was well done and chewy. Returned to kitchen, unable to eat it. Carrot cake hard in places and very dry.

Love going to Perspectives on Friday nights for dinner with my husband. We have a couple of cocktails and some dinner while listening to beautiful live jazz!
If you haven’t gone, you should try it out! Fantastic!

A lovely evening out.
Good food, and excellent service.
Live piano music was lovely.
We sat on the lower level away from the live music so we could talk. It was a little cool here, and not as cozy as the actual Lounge, but good for conversation. Our server, Deborah, was really excellent; friendly; efficient, and very attentive.

My husband and I wanted to have a relaxing meal and listen to some Jazz. We enjoyed our dinner at the bar, the service was great. We enjoyed the food and cocktails. The ambiance was nice and relaxing after a hard work week. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have agreed to make it a regular occasion and have booked another reservation.

Food was just ok - wanted an omelette as was listed on the breakfast menu - told that omelettes are only on brunch menu - seemed super odd that I was reading omelette - couldn’t u just cook scrambled in an omelette. Lol

We found the brunch to be lackluster.
The eggs Bennie only came with runny yolk which we didn’t enjoy. The waffle with general Tao was small. The coffee was in very small cups. The fries with the eggs be ok were basic roadhouse frozen type.
I guess we just expected more than typical roadhouse fare.

I reserved a table a week before, but was given an added table below and behind the bar. It felt like a cafeteria so we asked to move but there were apparently no tables so we sat at the bar. The duck and steak were tasty of course but my duck came with one piece of asparagus and nothing else. Not the dining experience I was hoping for that's for sure.
