Celebrated my 27th birthday here yesterday and it was an AMAZING experience. My waiters Kevin and Richard were friendly and very knowledgeable of the restaurant’s foundation and food. I recommend everyone to come here for elegant and delicious good as well as breathtaking Mountain View’s.

Took wife there for 57th! Amazing. Had a fleet of servers dressed in suits and they knew everything about every stage of an epic dinner. Never had a nicer dinner! Sure, it’s speedy but our night was priceless! New York Strip was awesome!
