Restaurant is in a clean, upscale atmosphere, with accomplished/professional servers, kitchen, etc... Food was beautifully presented. Diners' appetizers arrived at the table precisely at the same time. Same was true for entrees, which were cooked to perfection. Portions were more than generous.

We were there to celebrate Mother’s Day. Our waiter seemed angry and did not appear to want to be there. There was only a dinner menu available at noon, so we mostly ordered appetizers and salads - which was fine. My mother in law (who we traveled to see) ordered beef tacos. There was a large piece of plastic wrap inside the taco. So thankful she didn’t choke on it. Needless to say, she lost her appetite and it ruined the meal for us all.

This is the first time I am posting a negative review. We were very excited to eat here.

Food was good. Steak was excellent. Salmon was over done, it tasted good but was tough to cut. The service was not good. I had to ask 3 times to get my glass of wine after the waiter took our order. each time I politely reminded the wait staff I hadn’t got my wine they never apologized for forgetting. The restaurant was clean. The table was not very comfortable. We will go back because the steak was very good but not very impressed overall.

Went to dinner with for adults. We ordered two appetizers to share. (Each appetizer was 4 pieces.) All four of us loved the dumplings (?) and empanadas. We ordered 3 steaks and a brisket sandwich. The brisket sandwich was absolutely delicious! Each of our steaks was cooked to our liking and we're polished off. Wasn't crazy about the mashed potatoes. The haricot vertes were delicious!!!

We have been here before and were satisfied. It is very expensive so we only will go on a special occasion. This time, we were disappointed with everything. Perhaps it was a problem night for them, but when you soend $160 for 2 people and you didn't order drinks or dessert, you don't care if they were having problems. For $65 for their surprise steak, the surprise was the small amount of meat. Also, it was medium rare as opposed to medium but he didn't send it back because it took so long to get it. He did enjoy it. We ordered a salad to share and I ordered 2 appetizers instead of 1 appetizer and an entree. The salad and 2 appetizers were all brought out together so I had what was my main dish way before his steak came out. There wasn't even room on the table. Wait staff knew that one of the appetizers was my main dish. The salad should have been brought out separately. (And the salad was very disappointing). I do not mean to sound like a kvetch because we are really easy going people but for what we were spending, the quality and quantity of food, as well as the service, left much to be desired.

Reservations don't seem to matter. WE still wait and wait. The restaurant was overbooked and understaffed. They complete forgot one of the entrees and it took until everyone else finished their meals to get a waiter to come over to tell them. They didnt seem to care.

Service was good, chicken as yummy and moist, but the steak we got was very chewy although the flavor was good. The cheesiness ruined the dish. Ambiance was very nice.

We eat hear at least once a month, but this last time was disappointing. We had the wings as an appetizer, they were over cooked and came out cold. The cauliflower soup was not good, both my wife and I would not recommend it. The DelMonico steak was excellent, that was the only good thing. The service was terrible, I think they might have been short staffed, the place was NOT busy, but the staff was not attentive. I couldn't get a second beer.

This restaurant keeps getting better and better. They added a delicious sushi selection recently and it's the best in town. The owner Rafi is beyond helpful and interested in all his customers. I really enjoy going here and I go at least once a week. Best kosher spot in town by far.

The service was awful. We waited, waited, waited. Food sat under a heat lamp or something. Egg was totally over done; then took 15 minutes to replace. Waiter was clueless.

Unfortunately the service really is limited for such a high price restaurant. Had to ask for Diet Coke from 4 waiters and eventually went to the bar and got it ourselves after 30 min. Also didn't follow order specifications. Salad dressing was not on the side, they forgot the sauces etc. Overall, the food is good, but the service is consistently disappointing.

Melody was our server and was exceptional! We arrived a little early and she welcomed us. Incredibly friendly, kept us informed and recommended an outstanding kosher chardonnay, Herzog. The cuisine was exceptional and the best filet my son has had in 18 years An outstanding experience!

The food was good but the menu is not extensive. The main criticism is that the wait staff was loudly chatting away in the middle of the main dining room while they were folding napkins, and we were trying to enjoy a quiet meal. It was early, but that should be done in a back room and not where guests can hear them. No specials were offered, as they were on previous visits. The restaurant is on the expensive side for what it offers.

Went for mother's day. It was very loud and crowded. They sat us at a table that was between 2 rooms. Every time some one would walk by they would bump into the table and into my chair. The wait staff were not very friendly and quite slow. They took a long time to come over to the table but they had time to talk in the corner. For the price you pay you should be treated much nicer.
