My initial steak was not cooked at the correct temp but the manager swiftly corrected the issue and ensure upon arrival of the new steak it was cooked correctly. She made the entire experience alot better. Wish I would have gotten her name.

We hosted a private party here for my moms birthday, and the service, the space and the food were great. We could not have asked for a better place to host her birthday dinner.

Food is pathetic. My “perfect” margarita tasted like pure syrup. Oysters were frozen, shrimp over cooked, tuna flavorless with no sauces or anything to make it better. The only thing decent was the fish and chips which were both frozen products I’m sure...not very hard to throw something in a fryer. Service was slow. 0 star experience total waste of hard earned money.

The server was not attentive at all, never checked back to see how we were or if we needed refills on the beverages. The restaurant was not even crowded just to add. One of the meals was incorrect, so the manager brought the corrected dish back to the table with no apology or empathy. Certainly we would not dine there again.

Let me begin by saying that if there was no stars to offer thats the rating they will get. Considering that this restaurant is considered to be a high end restaurant the service was beyond terrible. We were seated upstairs, we ordered right away when we got there. Our drinks and appetizers came, mind you someone else that was not our server dropped off our food. They served us a soup with a oyster fork, not exactly how it is humanly possible for anyone to be able to eat it that way, anyways we then waited and waited and waited for someone to walk by to get a spoon. EVERYONE was missing in action until we got up from our table to find ANYONE for a fork. Our server never returned to the table to offer us more water or even drinks, we had to once again hunt him down after an hour of waiting around for anyone to give us an update on our food, mind you the restaurant was empty. After hunting him down we expressed that the service was horrible and all he said was "Ill get the manager" we waited another 20 minutes and no manager in sight. This is when we decided that it was time to go, no drinks, no food, no attention whatsoever. We got up and was looking for someone to pay our bill. We finally saw the manager down stairs who was apparently bringing our food up, he did not care about what we had to say, we told him we no longer wanted the food so he grabbed the steak that we ordered and walk away and served it to another table right in front of us. I must say this restaurant is by far the worst restaurant I have ever been to, the attention to the paying customer is non existence, and as far as management goes they should really look into getting new staff to give people a inviting dining experience. I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Slow service. Apparently , ran out of martini glasses and gave us a brandy glass for a vodka martini after having the first one served in a martini glass. Service was not as professional or upscale as I remembered. Food was excellent. They dress code policy is not enforced.. at.. all.

Our steaks had an oddly charred taste to them. It was unpleasant. The bread was stale and appeared to have been left over from the prior day. The spinach was tasteless. It took over 15 minutes for the waiter to even bring us a check at the end of the meal. Definitely will not return. We were disappointed and expected better.

I had to wait about 15 mins for a waiter when he finally did come he was pretty cool dude. But it took everyone pretty long to greet us. Then no one rarely came to check on us I’m not sure if I’m come back I like the one in ac wayy better

There for my twins 20th birthday dinner. We had a party of 12 and booked well in advance. On the day of they called from the restaurant to tell us our party would be split up and we weren’t even seated next to each other. Didn’t make us feel welcome at all. Our waiter was the pits. Jennifer the manager(?) was super rude and quite disrespectful to everyone in our party. The staff turned what was supposed to be a happy birthday into a nightmare. We will never ever go back!

It was amazing food great service nice intimate setting and the food came Out fast ... we were dressed casual and the food tasted perfectly ... I was surprised that the foods are portioned differently depending on what you order.

My bf plate had more food than mines soo I was still a bit hungry and the tuna was a bit dry but it came with wasabi and sou sauce so would
Have preferred it a bit more raw and seared but...the taste was still fresh and there was dedication to presentation.

The salad was sooo sweet and good for the tunas dry texture. As a whole it was perfect. More rice and a bit more salad would make up for the small amount of tuna.

But the service was impeccable and the Stella beers on the tap was perfect thanks again I will definitely recommend this restaurant

Service was poor on this night waitress to forever to come to table when she came she to our appetizers order then despair again for a long time only to return to as for the same order again . After taking it went away again the return to tell me that they didn’t have what I wanted made another request and it was the same my 3rd appetizer request final came out after an 1 1/2 hrs and tasted nasty had to send it back also At this time my waitress is yet to ask if I wanted any drink. After taking the nasty appetizer back she came back to take the order for our entree which half the items on the menu they didn’t have waitress made a food suggestion which my guest and I agreed to only for her to come back and say the were out of it too, while still yet to take a drink order. At this point I was very irritated so we decided to leave . Have had better food experience there before but waiter service is alway crappy

I would never go to the Philadelphia location again. My friend ordered stuffed salmon and it was undercooked. The filet and spinach I ordered was just ok. It took the waitress 20 mins to come over before we even got a glass of water and bread. When my friend complained about her salmon and asked for it to be removed from the bill , the manger came over. He never asked what was wrong or apologized…. Poor customer service. I’m assuming because it was the end of the night everyone just was in a hurry to go home.

The service was ok but there is a difference in the food quality since COVID. Food was not as flavorful and wasn’t cooked to perfection as previous. The price of the food did not match the quality that was served.

Food was good as always, happy hour prices are great and service was great. The only thing was tables were too close during this pandemic. I felt very uncomfortable when more people starting coming in. If there isn’t better social distancing I will not return until after the pandemic is under control.
