Great Service, great food

I rated Poor because of the service, but 5 stars for the food. Wasn't too happy with our server, Lee, who was overly going back and forth multiple times while me and my boyfriend were eating and chatting over dinner. I get that she meant well, but a female server who was overly chatty towards the male guest while on... More

We were catching dinner before a show. My knowledgeable server - Geetanjuli - recommended the lobster Tacos. There were delicious!. My husband had a steak, which was cooked to the temperature - medium rare - as requested. It had a nice steak rub on it.

A group of us that were "out on the town" to celebrate a "milestone birthday" found ourselves here after a night of sub-par comedy and a comedy of errors at another restaurant that we had pre-booked. With 14 of us suddenly searching for something close to our hotel at One King West, the concierge there suggested Houston Ave. After a... More

Very modern style steakhouse. The cocktails were outstanding, my wife loved her Cosmo. Wonderful wait staff. The dinners were outstanding. Only negative was the music, sounded like the same doing over and over.

I went to grab food and drinks after a long day of work. The staff made my day much better with the excellent service and food. The drinks kept flowing. They have a new regular now.

Three of us had drinks and a steak dinner here. Although friendly, service was a bit sluggish at times and our waitress basically asked us to settle the bill when she was going off shift, which I found a bit off.

I came here for the first time during my lunch hour and had their prix fixe lunch menu. Service was excellent and very efficient. I didn't have to wait long for a seat and I got my food pretty quickly. So I still had extra time to spare before my lunch hour ended. Food was just phenomenal! I had the... More
