Took a party of 7 (three generations) here for a birthday celebration. Everyone came away happy - even the young kids. It is expensive, to be sure ($60 per person, including wine and gratuity) but probably worth it, considering the location. Our server Jill was attentive and made sure everyone was content. The food was good and included a birthday... More

We come here often even with kids sometimes. The waitstaff is always amazing the food is top notch. It is hard to get a seat at the bar so table reservations are a must. Special occasions are recognized always!

I have always wanted to go here and tonight we did. The food, device and ambiance were outstanding. The rib eye steak was fantastic. I had the steamed Maine Lobster - very enjoyable! I will definitely return. I liked the fact that we didn't have to dress up, but you can if you want to.

This is definitely going to be an annual visit - just the most delicious food and amazing service! Waitstaff was attentive and helpful - thanks from the top of my head to the tips of my toes for mentioning the coconut cream pie before I ate my meal! The aged filet mignon was the best I've eaten and I could... More

Class restaurant with great food. Had dinner with 6 colleagues. We had steak, chicken, and seafood. Everything was great and service was excellent. Will go again given the chance. Be prepared to pay a premium for the service, great food, and atmosphere.

Everything here is exceptional! If you want a deal, try the Wagyu and Wine, when available. This is fine dining burger and fries with a choice of marvelous wine. The Duckhorn Cab is worth the $25 alone

Pros- When not upselling on wine service was good and attentive. Relatively quiet. Scalloped potatos. Cons- My mignon tasted like venison and was not tender. Asked for medium rare. Got well done on exterior, medium in interior. Husbands rib eye steak not any better. What we cook at home is better prepared and more tender. Appetizers and sides about what... More

We had a party of 7. Two of the party were already sat when the remaining 5 arrived. We were escorted to the table but did not receive menus. After 10 minutes, I had to return to the Host stand to request menus. The service from the waiter was good though difficult to understand due to a heavy accent. The... More

Great place for steaks and the booths add a comfortable dinning experience. When sitting at the bar be sure to ask for a bar menu, hidden secret with a lighter fare.

Am I missing something? We went to CG for a special occasion. It was crowded with a happy, weekend buzz. Lots of senior citizens and suits eating here, along with high rollers w/private wine lockers. My expectations were high. Our waiter was so sweet and attentive, but it went downhill after that. We ordered steaks and one of us a... More
