Although it positions itself as a steak house, the restaurant concept in fact is “East and West”, a mixture of Western and Oriental cuisine. Every section of the menu is divided into “East” and “West”. Open “Soups” and you will see Minestrone neighboring Tom Yam; go to “Fish” and choose Salmon with either Thai sweet-spicy sauce, or Blue Cheese sauce; see “Pasta” and you’ll find Risotto along with Nasi Goreng. Food quality is uneven. Excellent soups and tuna steak were followed by terrible veal medallions and (although vigorously promoted by the waitress), dreadful desserts: plain “hot ice-cream” and stale hard cheesecake. Full bar. The place has two levels: the upper one near the bar is a noisy vibrant smoking area with a large TV and loud music; the lower one, in the basement, is a tranquil romantic hall, non-smoking. High range (and too expensive for this quality). Web-site in Ukrainian only.

Nice for Mexican food

Compact but nice Mexican menu, food is not spicy as for Mex, altogether - normal place. At holidays not enough staff is serving the place, you'll need to wait for a while.

It took long for the order to arrive, the vegetables were not fresh and tasted spoilt, when we complained they insisted it was fresh, but it truly wasn't, did not look fresh, did not taste fresh. The steak was not as bad as the rest of our meal, but we ordered for two and it was not even enough for... More

Late night Saturday was touring the bars we had not yet been to. Found this place 1 block from Opera House just past open tourist market. Greeted by big guy with cowboy hat. Upstairs we found ourselves in a Route 66 Bar! Whole wall decorated and painted with map of Route 66 from California to East Coast with towns listed... More

Our visit to the grill started off okay. The "sheriff" helped us put together a table large enough for our party and got us menus right away. The next staff member to help us was a little more impatient and rushed. When taking our drink order she came back multiple times because she was tired of waiting for us to... More

A fun and cosy Friday evening after work atmosphere. Live music and good basic American food. Always crowded, so book at table if you are a larger group. There are both tables upstairs and downstairs.

We have been there with a company of 14 people and didn't make pre-order. Serving drinks took 1 hour. We finally got our wine... In glasses for martini! Incredible! The reason was that there is not enough of glasses in almost empty at that time place. Not to mention that they didn't have half of menu and drinks we ordered.... More

I've visited this place twice. First time recently after the opening: everything was ok, steak seemed to me like the best I've tried so far, service and waitress was attentive. Second time I was yesterday and the changes are critical: no attenttion fom the boy-waitress at all! waiting for beer and chips like forever! Dissapointed. Please do something, if you... More

You can find delicious mexican food and tasty meat dishes. We don't eat pork meat, but we were able to find another kind of meet dishes. We suprised when did not get the tortilla next to fajita! Also there is an hour limit of some food. Finally, service, quality and presentation are beautiful.
