Great food at a reasonable price, friendly and helpful service, stylish decor and fabulous location. Cocktails at the bar beforehand to set the scene. Every visit feels special. Definitely recommended.

Everything about Neo oozes style. Great setting, wonderful attentive staff and the food was amazing. One of best steaks I’ve eaten in a long time. Prices are not cheap but are competitive and well worth it for a memorable dinner.

Hello, We went in jeans and a nice top which was a bit casual. I would recommend a dress or nice pants for women and slacks and a button down for men. Enjoy!
