    The service was fantastic. In regards to food... hmmm.... Their filet mignon was not a filet mignon. The server was so very nice that I couldn't complain. It was the toughest filet mignon I have EVER tried. I just ate the over cooked string beans, shrimps and leftover appetizers.

    Our server… sorry I forget her name, but she was a redhead…, was extremely nice and provided great service. One slight disappointment is they had multiple red wines listed on the menu but only had one expensive one available the night we were there. The three-piece jazz combo…I’m sorry to say weren’t that great. The brussels sprouts and the salmon were excellent, but the prime rib sandwich, while good was slightly disappointing. Overall I’d recommend.

    Very very slow service. Took 30 minutes or more to get the drinks and just as long for the food. Shrimp pasta needed seasoning. The steak was over cooked, dry and the prime was well done. Had to send it back. The band was good but a little to loud couldn't hold a conversation with yelling.

    It wasn't overly crowded for a Friday night. The bar had a limited menu of cocktails available due to ingredients not being available/in stock. The appetizers were good. The burlesque show was ok. It is just one dancer in timed intervals. The service was nice overall. Missed notes on order/request. The server took it back to the kitchen. The entree was returned with the requested item just scrapped off. Sent it back and just didn't want to order anything else. The server made the manager aware and the entree was compensated. After this server never return to check in.

    The good: The hostess and waitress were both very good. The cocktails, wedge salad, prime rib and filet were excellent. The bad: The spinach dip was watery and underwhelming. The mashed potatoes were tasteless and had a weird texture. The band playing was so LOUD we had to yell our reservation name to the hostess. We could not hear what she said to us. We could not hear our waitress speak to us. We could not hear ourselves talk to one another while at the table. When we said we would probably have to leave, the manager was initially apologetic and said there was a sound technicality that would be corrected. The band stopped playing until we ordered our food. Then it was LOUD again. While we were still eating our food, the manager flung the bill on our table and said "I have removed the spinach dip from the bill" speaking while walking away from our table. Guess we weren't allowed to order dessert? For a steak house, we all were confused about who they were trying to cater to? Most of the tables were empty and the manager treated us rudely; you would think this was the only restaurant option in Long Beach. This was quite possibly the worst dining experience we ever had and truly remarkable the lack of professionalism the manager had for her customers. The hostess and waitress acted with more professionalism than her.

    Arrived on time for our reservation and we were seated in the middle of the dining room, but no server ever greeted our table even to start us out with waters. Two tables were sat near us and after us that started receiving service. We tried to get someone’s attention unsuccessfully. After literally 30min, we got up and left.

    One of the best Rib eye, I ever had. I’m sure they marinate and smoke the meat it’s so good and tender. You don’t need any steak sauce So pls kodos to the Chef. Our waiter name is Leanne she every attentive, always checking on us if we’re good. She knows how to take pictures, all I have to say is she loves her job, it shows. thank you for good service.

    Ordered medium steak , received well done . Mashed potatoes dry and falling apart, no flavor. Both drinks ordered tasted nothing like the flavor couldn’t drink it very bitter . They only have 2 high chairs so we had our 2 year old in a chair ( dangerous ) until one was available which I stated in reservations we’d need a high chair . Staff was friendly but over all not a great experience sorry to say.

    Their brunch was fine. Nothing special nothing exciting. The cost of cocktails was interesting: Bloody Mary with Titos: $18 Aperol Spritz: $10 Pineapple Daiquiri: $14 The Bloody Mary has zero excitement and the price isn't stated on the menu. It is served in a tall rock glass with celery, olives, and lime. For a cocktail over $15 I expect more excitement or a lot of beverage to drink. The food was fine nothing amazing or special that I couldn't have made at home.

    Just finished writing the Yelp review I was so pleased. 25 dollar reservation through Open Table. Dinner was delicious, reasonably priced, service was excellent, ambiance was fun and upbeat, very clean and modern decor. The band upstairs was a pleasant surprise and made a date night experience a great one indeed.

    Food and service were delightful. Prices were reasonable for drinks and food. Our only issue was that with the live band (who were great), the music was way too loud to enjoy conversation over dinner. Because the stage are is above the seating area, the sound carried across the dining room.

    Our server was amazing - very personable and checked in on us frequently but without making us feel pressured to finish up. The food was delicious - our group had the glazed salmon, French onion soup and prime rib. Interesting mixed drinks. Live music was great. The historic building located on a corner is attractive.

    My husband and I have made The Carvery our go to date night restaurant. We started with the Brussels sprouts… super crispy and tender and flavorful. Be sure to squeeze the grilled lemon over them for a little added tang. For my main course, I ordered the Togarashi Strip Steak, w/ mashed potatoes and broccoli. AMAZING…!! The Star of the night this time was the butter cake. So freaking delicious and most.

    AMAZING, over-the-top delicious! The Brussels Sprouts, so good, be sure to squeeze the grilled lemon over them. The Togarashi New York Strip Steak, juicy, tender, hella thick and flavorful. Sour cream mashed potato’s, Heaven! And the Garlic Butter Broccoli do yummm! The 1890 Manhattan was my drink of choice… it too was perfect. Everything I’ve eaten here has been perfection. This is a small corner Steak house, looks upscale and has a really laidback vibe. Every time I’ve gone, they’ve had a live smooth jazz entertainer. We’ve always eaten indoors, but they offer outdoor dinning. You won’t be disappointed

    We entered to a very weird smell. My husband said it must be some type of antiseptic cleaner. Seated immediately with reservation. Waiter was not easily engaged. Questions were met with statements and decisions we had not made. Poully fusee v. Chardonnay Asked for bread and were charged $1 for mediocre toasted bread without notice for charge. Asked about our meal nine times by managers (two?) and waiter. My husband thought his prime rib was amazing. My French onion soup was mostly gummed up melted cheese. Watched one of the managers realign their water glasses and bread plate while talking to other customers. While I celebrate and support quirkiness, I have to say most interactions were off-putting and we will not be back. Also, bathrooms were upstairs in a dark ballroom that was creepy and did not feel safe.

    Overall, it was a good experience trying this particular restaurant. The service was fantastic, it was in a great location, yes you'll have to pay for public parking but overall, it was an enjoyable experience. The food was decent but nothing to rave about; it was basic, they didn't even cut up the vegetables as they were just whole like literally a whole chunk of broccoli on the plate. The mashed potatoes was extremely overwhelmed with sour cream not very much balanced in flavor and very sour or tart. The salad was fresh, healthy and delicious. The charcuterie board was sad, the cuts of meat and some of the fruit was not as fresh and we didn't want to risk it. Most likely we won't be coming back just because of the price, public parking and the food was nothing to really rave about.

    Terrible service. Restaurant was near empty on Friday at 730pm. (Bad sign) Waiter/bartender forgot about drink we ordered. They were chit chatting the whole time with who we believe was the manager. After well over 45mins without the waiter coming to take our entree order we got our check and went across the street and had a lovely dinner at a place that actually cared about quality service.

    Celebrated 39 years of marriage, perfect venue for the two of us. Smoked salmon crostini was a delight, French onion soup followed, then we shared the Prime rib dinner (more than enough). Our server Damien then surprised us with dessert, ice cream over cake drizzled in raspberry sauce. We're going back with friends. Also, check out the Secret Island Tiki bar in the basement of this building for a bit of fanciful wonder and awe.
