Valet parking for an empty parking lot was a turn-off right away. When I told the hostess my reservation would now be 3 people, she responded that the reservation was for 2. Then to top off my experience with her, she took us to the table just outside the kitchen. There was only one other table occupied in the entire... More

I'm a big fan of their Tuna Tartare. Steaks are always on point. It's just a nice place to dine when you want to eat good food. The place never disappoints!

Had a great time for a late night out for drinks and haven experienced a decent club in a long time.

This is only a review of their "Lounge" area. Not the restaurant. Came here on a Saturday night with friends. My first impression of the place went from bad to worse. This place is pretentious. Trying way too hard to be something its not. First off, parking is valet only. Not sure why. They have a large parking lot and... More

Been to many of the best and was definitely not impressed. The atmosphere was that of a classic "Steak House" , the meat was below choice grade. Three steaks at the table, a filet, a T-bone and a Rib Eye. The filet was fair, but then again, outside of overcooking what can you do to a filet. The Rib Eye... More

I sat at the bar and ordered the 22oz. bone in ribeye steak special. It was cooked to perfection and had amazing flavor. I absolutely enjoyed my meal and will probably be back this week again. The creme brûlée was pretty good for desert. My coworker had the graham cracker gelato and couldn't stop saying how good it was. The... More

Steak was substandard, service left alot to be desired. So as a steak restaurant, thumbs down. As a hipster (pretentious) bar/hookup joint, go for it. Look for a good steak and good service elsewhere.

OK, so I just ate here because I was in the area for business and wanted a steak place. I'm never sure whether to give a place a 4 or 5 rating because it means different things to different people. To me, a 5 rating doesnt mean its the best place I have EVER eaten at, it simply means that... More

I always wanted to give this place a try, after trying it, and seeing the bill, the steaks are absolutely not worth it. They are on the same price level as top tier steakhouses and this place doesnt come close. I think they are more on the outback level. I would never return to this place. I can make a... More
