    Wesley was our waiter and we were celebrating our anniversary. He was very friendly we had a table by the front window with a water view…we ordered the Chataubriand which came with veggies. Was very delicious. Carrot cake and key lime pie were awesome also.

    For the price I expected a steak like I've had at Perry's and other high-end restaurants. The ribeye was just okay. It took a long time for the food to come and long periods between the time we saw wait staff. We were done eating for at least 15+ minutes and couldn't find anyone to bring us out ticket.

    I made the reservation because I wanted to give my husband and wonderful birthday dinner. He as well as I was so impressed with the restaurant and the ambiance. It was more than what we expected and set the mood for a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed it! My husband was on a Walker and they did not make him feel handicapped and we even were able to go out with him taking less steps out of the restaurant (they called it the VIP entrance and exit)! We loved the entire experience! We are eating our dessert now and it is super delicious!

    We were excited to spend a nice evening and enjoy what is typically very good food, we were celebrating an important birthday. Both entrees were burnt and overcooked - quail and lobster tail, the latter being $130. That's an expensive mistake! Even the free birthday cheesecake was underwhelming- tasted old and the accompanying berries were definitely old! The waiter is seasoned- had him before and he's usually very good. This time he seemed apathetic, never checked in during our meal to see how it was, only did so at the end when we were done. Given the fact we spent $325 for 2 people (only 1 glass of wine each), it was outrageously expensive, especially considering the poor food quality. The one good thing about the meal was the "free" bread. There was an obnoxiously loud group of 3 men sitting directly above us who also somewhat spoiled the ambiance for us and the other table sitting next to us. They would have been better served in a separate bar setting, not in an elegant fine dining restaurant.

    The place looks nice at the beginning but once we started the experience we didn't enjoy it. It was my wife birthday and I wrote on the reservation that it was her birthday. They didn't do anything special (like cake, candles, singing). It was plain. My first drink had a bug and it was replaced. The food took an hour to arrived. It was only two dishes. Overall, a lot of improvement from the restaurant. For that type of price, it was expected a lot more than what we got.

    I got the reservation and said it was my wife’s birthday and this wasn’t acknowledged. we arrived 5 min before our reservation time. we were seated 10min after our reservation time. when seated our table was in the corner and apparently the staff decided to set up a “bussing” station. There were two stands full of dirty dishes. We patiently waited to see if this was real life. About 20min later they took one tray away and things were looking up, however the tray showed back up and the servers started to plate deserts and pile more dirty dishes right next to us. I think they caught glances of our displeasure, and they tried to hide the dirty dishes with napkins covering the dishes. It wasn’t until we were about done getting our ticket that a gentleman came through and removed both trays. The entire time we had our meal only a food runner came over and it was only because the server rang in the wrong side dish so he had to get the correct one. This is purely a service issue and lack of training. It is disgusting to sit next to some else’s dirty dishes for your entire meal and have them scrape the plates right next to you. the steak was absolutely delicious and is the only saving grace to the evening. I’m not sure if we will come back. Katz 22 on the south side was just as good and the service was seamless. If we decide to, at least now we will set our expectations a little lower.

    Service was excellent as usual. The food was average and not worth the prices. The view and surroundings were great until some over-served bar patrons moved to dining and used profanity and were extremely loud next to our table. When we dine here we expect much more.

    We hadn’t been here in a few years but just moved back to the area, so we figured we’d try it out again. It was always our go to date night restaurant. It did not disappoint!! WOW the portions were much bigger than we had remembered and everything was extremely delicious!! The prices did seem like they had gone up a little. $51 for a 12oz ribeye is a little pricey, but I understand everything is inflated right now. At least we got to take our leftovers home and eat them for lunch the next day! Excellent! We went at 5:30pm on a Friday and it was all perfect.

    This is by far my favorite place to eat when in the area. I am sad that my review this time isn’t stellar. The placement of our table had waitstaff leaning over my head the entire meal to get menus. The steak was very rare. Luckily, while I didn’t order it that way, I didn’t have a problem eating it. I was not a fan of the fondue or the Mac and cheese- both extremely watery and lacked flavor. Everything else- delicious!
