For the last 6 years I generally eat there about 10 times a month. The food is always great tasting, hot and presented beutifully. The majority of the waiters/waitresses have been there for numerous years, on occasion when I get someone who is new the experiance is not the same. However, most waiters are caring, responsive and know how to explain their menus.

I thought the service was excellent and the food selection unique and delicious. The new dessert menu is outstanding! Try the cherry vanilla ice cream on gingerbread.

My boyfriend and I went there for his birthday. I was happy to be there with him, but was very disappointed in the dining experience. I know that it's a steak house, and I probably should have ordered a steak. My boyfriend got a steak, and he was happy with it (although he noted that it was at the same level as Mike's and Solo). I ordered the duck. It sucked. Duck is a very fatty meat, and therefore is usually very moist. It was unimaginably dry. I could barely choke it down. The side dishes were over-flavored. The key to good food is nuanced flavor, and with this dish, I felt like one bite tasted like vinegar, the next like garlic. The atmosphere was, well, unpleasant. It was really loud. We were at a table for 2, and we could barely hear one another. I could definitely hear the guy at the table next to me, because he was sitting closer to me than my boyfriend! And, unfortunately, we paid hundreds of dollars for this. The waiters did the best they could, but it was a bad situation. We had a reservation, arrived on time, and had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. Luckily, we had a nice bottle of wine, and enjoyed each other's company despite the restaurant.

If you have to take guests or family for Kosher, this place is not bad. But why does Kosher have to equal rude servers and expensive tabs? I agree with the other review that says this place is priced out of its league.

I've been a customer for 5 years and have watched prices go through the roof. This restaurant is priced like a fine five star restaurant but my servers were more of a deli caliber. The owners should appreciate that if you're going to price yourselves like a 5 star NYC restaurant, you need to train your servers in fine dining. You can't have your steak and eat it to!

Been there a few times wife is Kosher and have many Kosher friends. This place is pretentious, overpriced and just plain mediocre. The steaks are a ripoff perhaps those kosher their entire life don't know any better and have been " acclimated" to this stuff but Rib steak is one of the best cuts kosher or not they ruin it here. The pretend filets are fine for my dog. And the service and prices are just problematic at best. Go to La marais for a better steak , go to kosher places that don't pretend to be the Palm or Sparks. There are far better kosher choices kosher doesnt have to be a ripoff this place is Or buy a good kosher rib steak at home grill it medium rare enjoy and give the extra money you save to charity.

I go to alot of Kosher places b/c many of my friends only eat Kosher. This is considered a fancy/nice kosher steakhouse. Although the setting is nice, it is usually packed b/c it's one of the few really nice steakhouses that's Kosher. Additionally, the steak is not nearly as good as other steaks (kosher & non) that I've had. It is simply overpriced and overcrowded. To top it off, service is spotty: we had drinks, our meal, and hung out after drinking some more. Not until the late part of the meal when the restaurant started emptying out did service become adequate. Forget it if you needed a fork, another side dish, more water, ect. between 7-9pm. Just too busy. Save your money for better steaks elsewhere.
