We went to this place based on the reviews. As matter fact-we didn’t like it as much as we expected. It was very crowded. Some meat like pineapple pork was great and delicious. But we were not really impressed in general. Wine is very expensive...More

Sort of a DisneyWorld experience of meat but not for everyone. Mixed thoughts on the experience. I enjoyed the meat my wife not so much. She went salad bar, which was good. Price was high. I’d say a once a year experience...maybe.

Went with a group of colleagues and everyone loved the food. The 45 days dry aged Ribeye was simply gorgeously tasty a delicious flavor. Wine menu was overwhelming but the onsite sommelier helped us find the perfect wine that everyone liked.

Hello, sorry to have taken so long to answer. As others have said: it is not included, but quite honestly, after over two hours of carnivorous indulgence I didn't really want dessert.
