The owner walks around and yells at everyone in the restaurant including the patrons. He was a rude and an unwanted guest at our table. The service was excellent and so was the food, but make sure you are there when the horrible owner is not.
My brother and I both ordered ribeyes after the waiter guaranteed us they were aged steaks and would melt in our mouths. I am so upset because these werew the toughest steaks either of us had ever eaten. It should be unlawful to charge $30 for shoe leather. The owner must be buying his steaks from a retirement beef farm and charging for prime choice. dONT EAT HERE, save your money and eat somewhere else. I also complained and was looked at like an idiot and only offered a free drink to offset my displeasure. They also dont offer a contact page on their website to complain to the owner. I guess they know better. They wont be around long.
I give this one star - just because it was well decorated and the small salad was good. However, the steak that I got was over cooked. This place is very expensive - especially for the price you pay. They could at least throw on a baked potato or something!! The staff was rude - if I didn't have something placed just right on the table - they make sure they correct it for you - makes you feel like you are an idiot! I heard the Des Moines Josephs place is better...but I have never been. I would suggest going to the Big Steer in Altoona IA - GREAT PLACE!! OR Just make your own steak.
Made reservation 2 days in advance, I called on the day of and lost my reservation so I made another reservation. When I arrived at the restaurant they could not find my reservation. They sat me in a timely matter but very horrible seats in the front where there is little to no atmosphere except a good view of the front door. We ordered drinks and my drink came with a gnat in the bottom of the glass, which was replaced quickly but was not compensated on the bill. The meal was very well presented and tasted good. Overall my experience wasn't good for an anniversary that was supposed to be unforgettable.
If you want to be insulted as soon as you walk in the door, this is the place to go.
If you want to ask your server 3-4 times for an item, this is the place to go.
If you want to spend $250 for four for steak( that you can buy at fareway for $40), this is the place to go.
A pizza at the airliner has more atmosphere than here and everyone smiles their and you don't have to know the owner to get good service.
My recommendations is stay clear unless you want to be embarrassed in front of an important business clients or family.
i really liked it. nice fresh intimate atmosphere, the food was excellent as was the service. loved the interior decour.
Pricy, quality is average, excellent wine selection. So far no one really likes the food here, but the decor is nice, they are trying to be upscale.
