Amazing experience. We haven't visited for a while after used to visit twice a month so noticed slight price increase but still money well spent

Not as good as normal. Night was spoiled as soon as we arrived being told that the table we had was rebooked for 1hr 45mins later and we were asked if this was ok. We had no option but to say yes...then we had to wait quite some time for our mains. We ordered dessert then we were told the next booking had arrived 10mins early and would we move to another table. Felt as though we were constantly watching the time during our night out.

The food was excellent with every item being cooked perfectly, however it was the service that really stood out. We had a young waitress who although seemed relitevely new to the role was full of enthusiasm and done everything possible to ensure we had a fantastic experience and really made the evening great. We will definitely be returning!

Although the waiting staff were lovely service was very slow. We were kept waiting ages before we could order. Our drinks sat on the bar waiting to be brought to our table for at least a good 10 minutes! The fries were awful! Worst I’ve had in a long time. Lighting was too dull for me. Steak was well cooked and tasty.

We didn't ask for but got the chef's table. Great service and food was divine. If you want the best steak in town this is the place for you. Remember to order your sides if you want them though 😉

Have you guys stopped the birthday person cup cake treat?? My wife was looking forward to that special little acknowledgment but it didn't happen this time. Was a nice personal touch while it lasted. Otherwise the meals etc. were very good thanks.

We are sad to see pasta has been removed from the main meal. We found it not so easy to choose a main meal, hence why we came back for dessert only. Sadly we do find the prices expensive. The serive was awesome. Thanks.

Great service, good food. Cocktails are a little small for the price, if I'd known how small they were I wouldn't have purchased one. Otherwise the food was delicious and staff were great as per usual

The steaks are amazing top notch! I have been to plenty of steak houses all across the US and this place is on top of all of them. Great food and service will definitely stop by any time I am in Hamilton!

We had a table of 13 booked. Service was terrible they would come ask if we wanted drinks several people would say yes so they would take one persons drink order then the waitress would walk off and not take anymore orders. Our meals were not good either over half our table had cold steaks and everyone ordered medium rare but several of the steaks were blue and we couldn’t get anyone’s attention to send them back when someone did finally come over to clear the dishes we told them and we got a sorry that was very insincere. Very expensive meal that was disgusting. We certainly won’t be back. Very disappointing meal.
