    Wait staff inexperienced. Was told the basics of the more popular entree’s, sold wine/champagne but did not ask non-drinkers if they wanted anything. I asked for water after he returned. I asked for my entree to be cooked medium, waiter then repeated and said medium rare, correct? It was not loud in the room, I just got the feeling he wasn’t paying attention. After food was delivered nobody ever came to ask how everything was (antelope was pretty much tasteless) refill our drinks. Humongous wine glasses were never used, but not removed from the table either. Some man then came by and started to remove my plate before I was finished, asking”all through now?” Before I could answer the plate was off the table. Desserts were not offered, we had to ask. The apple Al la mode was so hard to cut into- they gave me only a soup spoon - never came back. And we, will never come back.

    We went for my parents 54th wedding anniversary. The complete night was a disaster. Our food took Iver an hour and a half food was cold. Service was horrible spoke the assistant manager. Not very helpful. It was a complete joke.

    It's not a bad restaurant, just dated and a bit boring. The decor looks like its from the 1990s but well maintained. The open kitchen doesn't contribute to the ambiance. We saw cleaning supplies in an ice tub with the wine. The bar in front of the kitchen was stacked with linens and plates blocking the view. While I like open kitchens, these details made it more like a diner than a fine dining establishment. The food was good my meal was slightly overcooked but I am particular about my meat at a steakhouse. It was well seasoned and plated. The service was attentive but inexperienced. Our waiter refilled my sparking water with tap although the bottle was plainly on the table. He also lacked the wherewithal to clear my glass and bring another. Certainly no big issues, just details to illustrate and manage a potential diner's expectations. This is your grandfather's steakhouse, good for a special occasion with family or a business meal, with a safe menu. This is not your romantic date night out or night on the town restaurant.

    Very lively spot for some incredible food with top notch service. Beignets were light and fluffy, crab cake benedict had a perfectly runny poached egg, and the cobb salad with chicken fried lobster was swoon worthy. Wait staff coordinates to bring all entrees to your table simultaneously, not a small feat when you are party of eight. Brunch well done!

    Not impressive for the price. The steak okay but dry (we weren’t offered mopped version when ordered). Mushrooms huge disappointment…they were little squiggly tiny mushrooms with no flavor. The Tater tots in duck oil were squares barely fried and mushy.

    The lobster bisque was the worst we have ever had and the SW Sampler was mediocre at best. Chef Fearing has clearly lost whatever star power he ever had. The cost of the meal was insulting given the horrific calibre of the food. Stay away!!

    Our dining experience was a positive one. The atmosphere and service were excellent. My husband had the lamb dish and said it was delicious. I ordered the antelope entree and found it to be steak-like but chewy. The oyster appetizer was a disappointment due to the smallness of the 3 oysters and the lukewarm temperature of the creamed spinach. The waiter recommended a Spanish wine which was a perfect selection for the meats we chose. The unique pecan "pie" was a sight to behold and quite good.

    Ambience is what it makes this restaurante attractive. We tried multiple dishes so we can have a better diversity of what the restaurant has to offer. Some were interesting like hamachi crudo remaining were not that incredible. I would expect more for a $200 meal for 2 people. There some special oysters with caviar…can’t understand why would someone kill the caviar or the outer flavour with some milky spice on it…terrible. Definitely there’s better dinners for the category.
