One word - WOW! My wife & I had our anniversary dinner here tonight. I made the reservations a month in advance, and I still had to choose the next time slot, as the one I wanted was full. Even though we arrived a few mins early, we were directed to the bar to wait about 15 mins for our table. This bothered me a little at first, since I made the reservations a month ago, but I understood after we had our dinner. The "traditional" time frame for dinner is much longer at a restaurant like this. Anyway, my wife ordered a Greyhound, which includes grapefruit juice. It was a disappointment to see they used canned juice & not fresh. My drink, however, was great - the Maple Wheat Old Fashioned. When we got to our table, we were greeted by, what ended up being, one of the best servers we've ever had, Amber. She was very pleasant & very knowledgeable about the menu. She seemed genuine when wishing us a happy anniversary, and even brought us complimentary glasses of champagne to toast with. How nice! From all of the reviews, I had to try the housemade bacon. My wife had the seared scallop. The housemade bacon was, seriously, one of the best things I've ever had. The bacon is like candy, and the maple cotton candy compliments it so well. The fat just melts in your mouth. My wife doesn't like bacon, and she said she'd order this. Her scallops were like butter - delicious! For our entrees, my wife had the wagyu filet, and I had the progression of the NY strip. We split the risotto tater tots and macaroni gratinee as our sides. The wagyu was amazing! It was interesting to see the differences between the three different NY strips. The Australian wagyu was my favorite! Probably the best beef I've ever tried. Like our server said, the risotto tater tots were to die for. We weren't overly impressed with the macaroni, but it was good. I had a side of bacon with it, which was delicious. We noticed there wasn't any salt & pepper on the table - didn't need it for anything! We were stuffed, but we had to try dessert. We had the toasted banana bread, which was...wait for it...amazing. It tasted like a freshly baked banana bread, and it had a little crisp on the outside. Add the hot toffee sauce and the mascarpone gelato, and you've got a little bit of heaven right there. It was an amazing meal, and we'll definitely be back for a special occasion. Yes, it was expensive, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. In total, we had 6 drinks, two appetizers, two entrees, two sides, dessert, and a coffee, and it was $230 before tip. I will say this, I read many reviews about it being loud. We were seated in the front (to the right as you enter), and this area seemed to be the quietest in the restaurant. I walked to the restroom twice, and I noticed a big difference in the noise level. We liked our table better anyway, as we were by the front window & could see Union Station outside.
