I very much wanted to love one of the most talked about restaurants in town. In the end, it wasn't extra special. We were seated promptly, & the service was mostly very attentive (got some bread, no butter, just before entrees arrived). Our server was on the smarmy side, & he steered me to a main dish that I regretted.... More

We went with another couple and enjoyed a great steak and king crab legs. The calamari was amazing with the tuna tartar. Always enjoy our meals here and the service and staff are extremely attentive. Little louder than I would like but the food is worth it.

Service outstanding, every course enjoyed by everyone, pricey but well worth it for a special occasion dinner. (It's a small thing but the valet parking and a coat check starts your evening off right instead of slogging in from somewhere off in the parking lot. Much appreciated!) They have some premium wines by the glass, using a needle and argon... More

Outrageously priced for both quality and quantity. The presentation of the food was poor and any true chef would be horrified.

My husband and I went to B&B on a Friday evening in January. At 9 o'clock, we were seated with no problem. Our waiter was loud and obnoxious, commenting on everything we ordered with a flippancy we couldn't stand. First,we ordered the calamari and it was not edible--too many peppers and garlic. It actually hurt our lips, mouths and stomachs... More

Best. Steak. Ever. Husband pleasing flavor and tenderness. The service was great too. Perfect little date night restaurant. Recommend this for special occasions. Attire is dressy however you could get away with jeans and a polo if necessary.

The location is in a plaza and as has been reported, parking is difficult. Also as has been reported, it is not a place for a quiet dinner; it is loud. My companion and I had a reservation and were seated on the second floor which is a little less noisy. We would have had a drink at the bar,... More

My partner is a lover of beef so I chose our first visit to B&B to celebrate his birthday. For starters we chose the calamari. Our server commented that this was on the spicy side. Spicy it was - and delicious! It was the best calamari we've ever had! My partner chose the ribeye. I am not a lover of... More

The steak is so tender and juicy you can cut it with a spoon. The service is impeccable and the 3 types of bread and butter they give you to eat are all fantastic. It is the perfect spot for a special occasion. Not family friendly because their is no childrens menu and its very fine dining, but perfect for... More
