    Food was average, not worth the price. Ambience was too loud with some techno music. Seat cushions worn out. Bathrooms dark, falling apart, soap dispenser torn from wall, paper towels cheap fell apart as you dried your hands. Service was slow, claimed short handed. If planning to charge those prices they need to step it up. Not planning on coming back.

    I think there is a shortage of wait staffs as always have to "chase" after them..... We enjoyed the food. Hopefully there will be more attentive waiters.,

    The menu has changed significantly since the restaurant opened and is now very limited. The wagyu that was once all over the menu is barely present. The cocktail menu is also very limited. Food was ok and prices are on par with Alexander’s without the white glove service and excellent meat. The side selection is also limited. Husband said he’d be surprised if they’re still open in a year.

    The main items one would get were “out” that evening. It was a Thursday and it was not crowded at all. The place looks bare and like it’s going out of business. The fridges barely has anything in them, the tables had no ambiance or character. The waitress was nice but by the time we would have ordered a bottle of wine (the sommelier was also out), we were already thru the main so we just passed on it. It just felt like the place was struggling while across the street and down the road places are busy. I thought the people were really pleasant and accommodating, but for the 30% more you pay here I would say the value is non existent. To be clear the food was good, just not for the price.

    Atmosphere, decor, and music were ideal. Service was great, attention to detail was nice. Octopus and beef tartare appetizers were delicious and beautifully plated. NY strip steak had great flavor and cooked properly, but had some chewy and tough spots that should have been trimmed off before cooking. Truffle Mac and cheese was delicious, as were the huge portion of mushrooms which complimented all 4 of our steaks nicely. Wine list left a lot to be desired. By the glass list was small and by the bottle list was huge but most were out of stock. It made for an uncomfortable situation if having to settle for a bottle more expensive than we were planning to order because all the mid range bottles were sold out and server was unfamiliar with the low range bottles. Wine buyer should be on top of ordering or make the list smaller and more manageable. Overall great experience.

    Food was great. - Wine list is inaccurate, from the server’s answers, it seems the management is not ordering enough inventory. - Ordered the tamahawk ribeye, server didn’t mention the cut was wagyu or the price at the time of ordering. $250 came as a bit of a surprise, but it was quite good. - Server stated that the dish came with three sides, three sides were on the bill end of the night and I had to had it removed. The restaurant has all the hallmark of a place ready to go under.

    Food is ok, but service is miserable and slow considering the price we paid.
