    The food was top tier. I had half shell charbroiled oysters, my friend tried them and is now an oyster diner. I had a steak Oscar style that was seasoned cooked to perfection. The ambiance was nice, a good vibe. The bartender had the drinks flowing. I felt great. Please visit this hidden gem

    Awful experience! Actually left and went to another steakhouse. We did not leave after 1 drink we ordered appetizers and bread which both were awful! That’s an untrue statement!!!!

    WITS SteakhouseResponded on October 30, 2022Since you and your guest left after one drink, I don't feel that you really had the opportunity to have an Experience. We Sincerely hope you will come back and try all of our wonderful cuisine and have a full dining experience.

    We went there for a birthday dinner, the food was good, definitely a vibe, drinks were great. The things I feel they can improve on: Appetizer Calamari was fried really hard, like deep chicken fried. It took away from the taste, and the Aoli sauce (if that’s what is was) had no flavor. Fillet Oscar Style - had no sauce. Only crab meat, wasn’t really Oscar style. New spot, opened in January but would definitely go back.

    WITS SteakhouseResponded on October 30, 2022Thanks Tlady. Glad you had a good dinner with great drinks. We appreciate your feedback on the calamari.

    The food and service was excellent. Our server Manny was AWESOME!! The drinks were wonderful! You have to try the WAGU Meatballs for appetizers they are the best I have ever had. I loved everything about this place. It is worth the money.

    Jonathan our waiter is a good person and did his best. However the rest of the experience was not good. Doesn’t seem like this place will be around much longer. Bartender playing YouTube videos loudly for twenty minutes. The manager, hostess and staff just stood around and leaned on the hostess stand most of the time. Only three tables were being used but all tables were over set like they were fully booked. Table linens were extremely wrinkled and messy. The food was brought out by the manager and staff but they had no clue how to place the food on the table. The food wasn’t good. I never care about the cost of food. But $40 for a scallop entree with three scallops and five tiny pieces of broccoli is silly. Not to mention the scallops were poorly cooked. Truffle fries were soggy. The broccolini was under cooked and overseasoned. Put it in a to go box to cook it correctly at home and eat it. Manager never came by to see how we were doing or find out why we sent the fries, scallops and broccolini back. Didn’t want anything for free, just couldn’t eat the gross food. Don’t book a resy here or waste your time. Plenty of better options to go grab a good steak or sushi in the city. Lastly one of the three tables had a lady on her own and she lost her wallet. For 45 mins Jonathan tried to help her, the manager never went by to help with options. He actually disappeared when he heard the issue. After her just sitting there trying to find a friend to come pay I got up and paid the lady’s tab so Jonathan didn’t get stiffed. The manager still didn’t care. Hoping the owner sees this and makes a leadership change. You could have a great restaurant if someone cared about the details and quality of service.

    A matter of time before the word gets out about this restaurant, so go while you can get a table. Our table had the filet and ribeye both were grilled to perfection. The menu offered a number of other dishes for those wanting something other than steak. My wife had the lobster linguine which she thought was outstanding. The manager and wait staff were extremely attentive and professional. The atmosphere was very nice. Wonderful music played just loud enough to hear but did not drown out our conversation. Great selection of wines and port wines. Paired well with their layer strawberry cake. I will come again for family, friend, and business dinners. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

    The restaurant is trying to be much more than it actually is. The value for a dinner for 4 is just not there. The service is lackluster but overall ok, the food was mediocre at best, and the ambiance was terrible until we asked the manager to allow us to change the playlist at which point the entire restaurant became more alive. The table behind us was like thank you, and it was much better. I wanted to love it, but we won't be back.

    We decided to try this place with some friends - instead of the usual steak houses in town. To start, a friend and myself chose the wagyu meatballs. The meat was tasty but cooked too well done. For entrees, a few of us got the filet and some had the salmon. It was a real shame as all were served basically at room temp. After telling the manager, they took the plates back and brought back our same piece of meat warmed up a tad more (microwaved??) it was not the greatest experience. When spending $400+ you’d think your meal would be pretty nice and an overall great experience.

    The oysters were the best part. I had the $120 filet mignon and it was extremely salty. I also had the $50 gold digger drink and it was super sweet and I couldn’t taste the champagne. My date had the salmon and didn’t like it. It did not taste fresh. The service was wonderful. I should have known when it was Friday night and the place was empty. The venue is really pretty.
