    Good food and great building. Unfortunately, they are too focused on turning over tables and therefore making you feel rushed through dinner and/or not able to enjoy the full dining experience.

    My perfect RBG meal. Chipotle margarita to start, kingfish carpaccio, grass fed eye fillet with horseradish cream and BBQ sauce, side of creamed corn with manchego and a glass of Pinot. Perfect!

    Smallest martini we've seen in awhile. Appetizers small too. The wagyu burger is good, but I wouldn't rave about it. Same with the fries. Great atmosphere and decor, though.

    Steaks are served precut; server says so people can share and so chefs know if it's cooked properly. Rockpool, if your chefs don't know a steak is done without cutting into it, you need better chefs.

    I'd be happy to wait 30 minutes for a table - if there was somewhere to wait! Bar is full of people eating & you have to stand awkwardly behind them. Feels like you're drinking in a dining room. Left.

    Definitely worth going to the bar, not the restaurant. You can order restaurant food at the bar. And there are 2000+ wine glasses hanging in the bar, which makes an impressive display.
