The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and we got to meet the chef!

Service was fantastic - the waiter immediately handled my voucher and was very attentive the whole time. There was no restrictions on the entree you select.

Mar 16, 2015 Derek DC, United States

Long wait to be seated, despite having a reservation. Service was inattentive and poorly executed.

Great steak

Mar 15, 2015 David MD, United States

Drinks and atmosphere were good and nice.

I already sent you an email, but will describe it again. We ordered drinks and when it came time to order the meal, the bartender told us that their three most expensive entrees were not available - the filet mignon, ribeye and fish of the day. We were bummed. We had to order less expensive and regular entrees so we really didn't get any "deal". Not a great experience. We overheard the manager talking to a kitchen person about the reservations for the night and they had a table of 18 and table of 6. Maybe they were saving the better entrees for special parties who were paying top dollar? Just not a great feeling. I asked for a refund in my earlier email to you. Thanks for anything you can do.
