We went last night to Knoxville location for my mom's 95th birthday. The server Cesar and assistant David could not have done a better job of serving and assisting us. Every detail, every interaction was incredible. Steaks, salads, sides were just perfect and truly delicious! Will definitely go again and will ask for Cesar each time! Thank you! Recommend to everyone!
