We made this reservation weeks in advance and they shoved us in this tiny back room. It felt like a spillover room, only had 3-4 tables in it. The food was good as was the service, but we felt sort of put out by the placement. There were plenty of tables in the main room.

reservation clerk did not mention that it was "brunch" only when taking reservation. Family had to walk out when it became clearly that members of our party would not be able to eat the food offered.

The food was excellent. However, the restaurant was noisy and the waitstaff was inattentive. Our wine was good, our cocktails were not. The chateaubreand was excellent, perfectly cooked. Our waitress took our order, then we never saw her again.

I'm upset because I did an online reservation and added the request that it's my bf's birthday surprise dinner. I wanted it to be special for him. I don't mind spending the money for good quality and customer service but I literally had to write on the check before leaving to remind them we came for his birthday. I did not want him to see though. Everyone else around us, like 4 birthdays were sung to and very cheerful by all the servers it seemed. (my bf was sitting there eagerly waiting for his turn) When our waiter got back and saw what I wrote on the check he whispered oh happy birthday and said one of the desserts were taken off the check ... I was speechless. We could of went to an applebee's, spent 85% less and got better service and care. Our waiter didn't ask if we were OK with our meal. Just serve and go. I'm not from CT but was told it is not too friendly towards people of color so maybe that's what it was. And we felt uncomfortable. From walking in, the greet felt forced and awkward. I feel like I wasted $90+. I definitely would NOT go back or recommend to anyone with my skin tone. I wouldn't want them to feel the same if that's the case.

Food was very good and on a very busy Monday service was good, but slow.

Would go again as the menu has variety, not just beef.

The food was very tasty just the service was slow because it looked like there was only one waitress for the room we were in. She was very nice just took her a long time to get to us. We had a 6:30 reservation and didn’t get out of there til 8:45. The prices were on the high side.

Food amazing
Service terrible
Messed up meal for 1 of 4. She ate alone. Server forgot to bring silverware. Coffee was brought out literally ice cold. I ordered a dessert that I don’t even know what it was it was liquid like melted ice cream in a cup we asked for a very specific dietary restrictions they were not honored we asked for sauces on the side that we were paying for it they were forgotten to be brought ultimately at the end of the meal after even complaining to the manager they took items off the check which were already messed up and they sent us a round of drinks which I later learned was well vodka not the vodka that I was willing to pay for which gave me a huge headache the next day I will not return

It was our anniversary and the main dining room had a large party next to us that was really noisy, so the hostess and our waitress moved us to a smaller room. There was no one in there but us, it was nice and private! They went above and beyond to accommodate us and we really appreciated that. The food, as usual, was awesome!

We sat in the bar, and took advantage of the happy hour specials. We had shrimp cocktail, oysters and clams. Then, we shared the house chips, and then we shared a meatball. There was so much food! All of it was fresh and delicious! The wait staff was friendly and attentive, and our waitress, Sam, was friendly and attentive as well.I highly recommend!!
