Outstanding steak

The filet mignon is outstanding. The menu is a la carte. It is pretty expensive. I highly recommend ordering steak. I have not been as impressed in the past when I have ordered other entrees, but I can't remember what they were.

Great atmosphere and excellent food and wine. Service was impeccable. Nice bar area. Tasteful décor. Most of us had the filet mignon which was outstanding. Nice touch was getting to pick what type of sauce you would like to accompany your steak. Extensive wine selection, very extensive. I love all the banquettes which makes dining with friends or that special... More

We dined here as part of a business dinner and enjoyed prompt professional service and excellent food and wine. 8oz filet about $36.00 with a side and sauce for the filet. Nice selection of salads and wine with service that was prompt, yet non-obtrusive. A coat check is offered up front. A very nice evening and we won't hesitate to... More

I received a gift card for this restaurant and while the meal was nice enough, I'm glad it wasn't on my dime. I thought the prices were too high relatively to the quality of the preparations. You are paying for the 'sophistication".

Terrific steak and seafood. Wait staff was very attentive and the food was very well prepared. Delicious steak, oysters, crab, shrimp, bread and cocktails. The deserts were also delicious. We were in a private dining room for a meeting dinner.

This is one of the greatest restaurants of all time. The service is outstanding, food is always perfectly prepared and consistent. Prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food. You cannot go wrong here. The atmosphere, the service, everything!

My first and last time visiting this restaurant. Staff and service were very good, place if very pretty. The food was extremely disappointing. With so many choices to fine dine, look elsewhere. Lobster Bisque was just ok, have had much better and a lower end restaurant. It would also benefit to put a small piece of lobster meat on top... More
