We have visited this restaurant three times. First time was at their original location. We had reservations two hours before a show we were attending. The waitress even asked us if we were attending the show and said our meal would be out in plenty of time (it was a birthday dinner for my husband). As you can guess, we had to leave just as our entree were coming out.

The second time, we went to the new location. Nice astomsphere. Service was very sloppy. We asked for silverware several times. Silverware then was not set and just handed to us, appetizer and main entree came at the same time.... Just a mess of a dinner.

We decided to give it one more try. We were seated at a nice, kind of romantic table. We sat for more than 20 mins before we even were acknowledged and water brought to us. I asked for a basic martini, they didn't have the ingredients. The wine was opened sloppy. Appetizer plates were not cleared for quite a long time after we were done. Meal was okay. Dessert was very dry and not worth the calories and money.

This place has SO MUCH potential. But they are missing the boat. Just very disappointing.

Food is flavor rich and the chef has done a great job preparing it. I would highly recommend the rib eye, it is an aaa meat, well aged and well cooked. We also tried the seafood platter it was good but not as good as the steak. It is a steakhouse after all . I would say it must be one of the best in town.

We ate here while on a trip, and found it to be such an interesting experience that on the way back a week later we bypassed the other highly-recommended restaurants so we could enjoy it for a second time. The servers were both very charming, and there is the feeling that the place is operated with enthusiasm. The kangaroo was a new experience for me, unusual and very good.

After reading reviews and receiving recommendations we made reservations for dinner and were pleased we did. We thought the atmosphere was very inviting and encouraged lingering over a meal. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu selections. The menu is not large but offers a unique selection that includes kangaroo and other more exotic meats. Many of the products are locally sourced which we like. We chose a Carpaccio appetizer to share and were amazed at the size of the portion and the fantastic taste. Fresh, clean and adorned with perfect micro greens. I chose the ribs with a dry rub and my husband had a steak. Both were cooked to perfection and had a nice presentation. Wonderful restaurant that I would highly recommend. While there, we had the pleasure of striking up a conversation with 2 gentlemen seated next to us visiting from England. It was like the toping on the cake. Hello to you both!
