    From the time we arrived to the time we left, the service here did not skip a beat. Our servers were knowledgeable, considerate, and prompt. The food was spectacular. Full of flavor and well balanced. The cheese cart was my favorite part of dining, as I got to pick the cheeses and they did not disappoint. Kimchi Spinach went well with the dry aged steak and the the caramel dessert was the perfect ending to the experience. Highly recommend.

    Good quality food but nothing inventive or unexpected. Very high prices for what it was. Decor seems very confused on what direction it’s trying to go. Restaurant is very bright and not at all intimate. It definitely feels like you’re at a hotel restaurant and not very special. While some guests dress appropriately business causal, some are in t shirts and taking loud phone calls on speaker during the meal.

    Nice ambient , good service , but the food was disappointed. Specifically my plate , the mezzaluna , really salty . Almost inedible . To be honesty, the best dish was the desert .

    I have been here many times and it’s always been my favorite place to eat until yesterday. First off they changed the way caviar is being served. No more fish skin, small portion and it’s now served with a side of salmon eggs, what an insult. Served with five blinis and no mother of pearl spoon. The waiter literally said the Chef said a pearl spoon wasn’t needed do to the high quality of the caviar, what a moron. My daughter ordered a chilled lobster and they brought her the wrong item. The chef always brings out a special side for the table to enjoy but they brought out chili lol, really first of all it’s June not December and who serves chili at a five star restaurant. What’s next hotdogs and spaghetti o’s. All the food we ordered was terrible expect my steak, I will say my steak was amazing. Service was horrible took forever to get a drink refill and no one checked on us and we had to ask them to clean off our table. The server said they have a new chef and manager. This place is in trouble! Won’t ever go back again!

    I never have a problem paying for a good meal at any cost but I expect to receive what I pay for add this restaurant sells short in every aspect from quality of food to quality of service. I absolutely would not return.

    I booked table here to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The server started our night with a poured glass of champagne to commemorate the date. The tuna & foie is a must and so is the diver scallop. I really enjoyed the dry age on the bone-in ribeye, my husband was not as complimentary. We will definitely return to eat our way through some more of the menu options. The decor was lovely and the service was OUTSTANDING. Our server even encouraged me to try a red wine I hadn't had before in leiu of my original choice and I am so glad she did. Thank you Sara!

    We had 9:15 reservations and didn’t get seated until 9:40. The restaurant is loud and does not look high end. The ambience is non-existent. We placed our full order at the insistence of the waiter so the could ‘time’ our courses. Salads took about 10 min to show up. The service wasn’t great and our waiter could have been more attentive. After our salads were done we easily waited 40 minutes for our entrees. I had the whole fish and it was good, but very salty and they did a very poor job taking the bones out. The charred cauliflower was not good. My husband got the bolognese which tasted like it was from a can. We told our waiter how bad it was and they took it off the bill. The manager came over to apologize and said they took on more tables than they could handle. If you want a great meal and wonderful service, walk over to the JW next door and eat at The Kitchen.

    Took 25 minutes past our reservation to seat us. The wedge salad was average. The NY strip we ordered medium came out well done. The charred cauliflower should be removed from the menu. Forgettable experience.

    We were disappointed in the food, fillets were dry, dessert was ok, i really wanted something chocolate, there wasnt anything chocolate on the menu, and the ambiance was so casual and we were dressed up for my 60th birthday. Kids running around, Men in shorts . Our bill was over 400. The service was good at times and then we would sit there and wait for 15 min. We had to give them our full order and then we waited. The best part of the meal was the brioche that they served us and the caesar salad. The King Crab scampi was very good, but the sides charred cauliflower and Mac and cheese were tasteless.

    Wow! Stunning place, excellence service deliver (Shay, Jesus, and Chris). I also met David who also was on top of everything. The team did run like a well oiled group of professionals aspiring for greatness. It was so nice to see such genuine kindness, passion and effort. We loved the various premier steaks, the scallops and scampi dishes are amazing. The bread and cheese selection ohhhh do I say more. I just had a GREAT time and the kids loved it too. They consumed oysters faster than we (the adults) could even take a bit. I can’t wait to dine with you again.

    A little disappointed. Was my birthday and looking forward to a good ribeye , only to be given some convoluted excuse as to why none was available. Had bone-in NY strip which although medium , was a little chewy. We waited a long time for the entrée so was given too extra sides, not of my own choosing. Then I was charged the bill for another table , $130 more than mine. Good thing my wife told me to check before signing. The Manager came over and corrected. Overall , not an experience as with Norman’s. Seems like still a work in progress.

    Divine pleasure of all the senses. Every detail of design, furniture down to the flatware was meticulously selected to provide a diner with a culinary experience for the senses. The food was meticulously prepared to deliver complexity, depth and beauty. The service was unmatched. I rarely speak highly of dining experiences, but this was a whole mood inside and out.

    We were excited to try Knife & Spoon for a special birthday dinner. We waited twenty minutes past our reservation time to be seated. The room is very open and there is zero sound-proofing, it was hard to carry on a conversation or to hear the serving staff, especially those in masks. And speaking of masks, why is your serving staff (only) still masked? There is zero science to support this and seems such a double-standard when your guests, your hostesses or managers aren’t wearing them…please take the masks off. For the price point, we expected more. The aged NY strip ($140) had a nice crust however many parts of it were charred black and weren’t edible and without the crust the steak lacked flavor, aside from a distinct seafood-y flavor, which was very odd. The cheese plate had a nice selection of three cheeses but felt for the price point there could have been more accompaniments, like nuts or olives. The onion rings were delicious and I did appreciate that they had a gluten-free bread option. Despite the wait time and the disappointing steak, the service was excellent and what I’d expect from a high-end restaurant; the staff was attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you’re craving a delicious steak, head to Bull & Bear or Ruth’s Chris instead.
