This place had huge and amazing steak. I'm a big eater and had to get a to go box. I really had every intention to finish it because it was so good, but couldn't . The quality of the meat is great , fresh and juicy, not at all stringy or tough. We came on a Groupon, so the price... More

Everyone thought the food was acceptional and better than a year ago when last attended. Formal surroundings but very formal staff.

The service here is excellent. You won't find many restaurant with service like this. You get a five course dinner. Everything is hot and very tasty.

The black tie waiters and attempts at being fancy just don't fit the dated look of the restaurant. The food was good, but certainly not worth the price. Several coworkers had steaks and said it was nowhere near the Ruth Chris/Mortons or other fine steak houses experience. I had spaghetti, which was advertised as their own sauce. I also tried...

Recommended to me by a local. Best recommendation ever. Minestrone soup is a must and have some fun by trying the appetizer platter. I had the Dover Soul and it very well prepared. It's an charming dated restaurant that is well maintained and has varied booth sizes for romance or friends to get cozy. Staff is excellent. Our waiter, John... More

In a word ... Underwhelmed. Service was good, food was decent overall. I'm told the steaks are very good ... Just seriously overpriced. Ordered eggplant parm that was nothing more than several breaded patties w/cheese squares melted on top ... Really! Even with a Groupon this restaurant is no bargain and we left disappointed by the experience. Olive Garden, Bravo... More
