Steakhouse, Wine Bar, Seafood
This is my second time dining at 212 Steakhouse, my initial experience left vowing to NEVER return. First I’ll start by saying that I think that it's awesome that a restaurant would reach out to patrons to help rectify their wrongdoings. The owner invited back to try things out again and I'm happy I did.
I was greeted upon arrival and my server was very attentive, nice and helpful. This time I decided to dine by myself and took a lovely seat by their window towards the front. This was a Wednesday evening around 5:30 pm. There were two sets duets other than myself. As I was leaving more people were starting to come in. The place is definitely more on the upscale side, but not where you need to be dressed like you’re going to a Gala. I wore work slacks.
The service was great, but there weren’t much patrons while I was dining. My server spoke to me like a queen lol. There was nothing impossible to request and even gave me great recommendations. My server kept a good eye on me and was close whenever I needed something. I really appreciate my time there and everyone taking their time to make this establishment is better for patrons.
The price was definitely on the high side as with many steakhouses, BUT they are always having deals on Groupon where you pretty much get to eat for half off. It would be like $80 for $160 bill. You can not beat a deal like that!
The food was great this time around. Starting off with some hot delicious rolls and some bubbly. Two glasses of prosecco got me right where I needed to be haha =). I had to stop myself from eating too much so that I can have room for my food. My octopus was excellent and not rubbery. The STEAKKKK *Soulja Boy voice* is what brought me back. They advertised 24 karat kobe beef and 24k steak. Though I loveee kobe beef and prefer beef over steak, I decided to go with the steak. My medium rare steak was very juicy/tender and the lobster mac was very rich in flavor (they used the GOOD cheese). My lobster was prepared in an amazing sauce and the cherry tomatoes really added a kick. Ending with my absolute favorite go to crème brûlée paired with dessert wine. My night was complete. I will be sure to return with family and friends next time around and I am happy to gice this place a second chance.
