Atmosphere, drinks, rest of the food we ordered.

Just the main dish. The steak was completely rare and very fatty.

My husband enjoyed the lamb entree he ordered.

We went on a busy Friday night and there was a high energy level as well as a high noise level with conversations and loud background music. This is a spot for the younger crowd. We sat at a table a distance from the bar and could only hear each other if we spoke loudly and were about 12" apart.

The food was excellent

So the food was excellent, and I would come back any day for that, but there are four very large screen tvs above the bar and facing the restaurant that really detract from your dining experience if you want it to be peaceful or intimate-- or even just non sports bar. I feel like they are trying to be both a sports bar and a high quality restaurant, and the high quality restaurant adds to the sports bar. But the sports bar greatly detracts from the high quality restaurant, in my opinion:) I would go back for drinks, but not say, for a nice dinner with my husband.
