I don't eat here often because I don't often think of it, which is my loss. The food is very good (high end), it is BYOB, the wait staff is friendly, the chef comes out to the table, and the building is cozy and unique....More

We and another couple went to Trax to celebrate New Years Eve this past winter. The food was fabulous, the service attentive and friendly. I'm looking forward to going there for my birthday.

My split pea soup had stringy meat in it. Taste was not good. Lamb chop entree was good quality, but lacked flavor. Apple fritter dessert was good. Prices were high. Only benefit was BYOB. I would not encourage anyone else to visit.

Over priced for what you get. Food was good but portion was small even for lunch. Everything was extra. BYOB. Space is small, limited seating.

Since this is a BYOB, I brought a special concoction we all like. One of the servers asked what it was and the asked if she could smell it. Ok..but then she proceeded to take a sip and give the drink back to my wife..Unbelievable!!...More
