after a long shopping day we all were tired and hungry. my sister suggested to eat at first and hope went. it was my first time there but i enjoyed the food a lot. the service was good too. after that we continued to shop.
Don't Bother With This Place – JUST AWFUL!! We walked out on New Years Eve!!! They left us standing at the hostess desk for what seemed like an eternity and then when someone finally walked over, they (so called) could not find our 5:45 reservation. They seemed to struggle to find a table for us in a half empty restaurant. After previously being told we could order from the regular menu before 7:30, the waiter informed us that that wasn't true. We had to order from the NYE menu with limited choice like liver and onions and pork chops (I just read a review that said the pork chops were horrible). We were never offered a drink and the entire staff treated us as if we were in the wrong place. I felt unwelcome from the moment walked in. Being African American, I can't help but wonder if the whole thing was by design. I will NEVER go back there.
Overpriced, over-rated and overly hyped. – Pseudo chi chi trendoid wannabe place that seems to specialize in generating hyperactive publicity . Mediocre, inconsistent and very expensive food, served in uncomfortable little spaces with no views of anything. Is it mostly "for the boys?" With catchy promotions like the "Man Cave" and tatooed hostesses wearing someone's blandly overbearing idea of elegant evening gowns, this restaurant more than slightly misses whatever mark it was going for - if they even know what that was. A supper club, it's not.
