    Everything was truly outstanding, my only suggestion is for the new students to be more confident and more knowledgeable about what they're serving. The young lady that we had was very nice and sweet but she had a really hard time passing on any information to us (perhaps shyness) We love the experience and would highly recommend it to others.

    Service was excellent. The food quality was good and the kitchen's cooking technique has room for improvement, yet since the team are students, they are above average at their current level.

    Overall a good experience. Steaks need a little more seasoning. Servers were trying to be attentive. Maybe to attentive, hanging to close to the table. constantly trying to keep water glasses full (too full). Was with Seniors so thank you for turning music down. Server a little nervous but progressed to be better throughout the night.
