A great implementation of a chop house

Went here on a business dinner with lots of people. Everything was as you would expect in a top notch steak house. The bar is set high here and they met it. Highlights -- great onion rings. Good seafood platter (oysters especially noteworthy). My "grilled" prime rib was perfectly done... read more

We went for my grandson's 21st birthday, and he was willing to go with family instead of friends for "the beef." It did not disappoint. We had wood-fired prime rib, which I had never had before, and it was flavorful and so tender, and also two had New York steaks and my daughter had the lobster, which was surprisingly large... More

Not many options for vegetarians. Tried the grilled artichoke was not very good. The grilled portobella mushroom dish was good.

I had a leaf salad starter and a perfectly cooked filet mignon with simple sides of mashed potatoes and spinach with a lovely glass of wine. The waiter was very pleasant. The water unfortunately came in a broken glass, which the waiter promptly replaced. The location of the restaurant is convenient for the guests of neighbouring hotels, though far from... More

The food, especially the steaks, and service were first rate, and the price for the meal was quite reasonable. The only negative was that it was a bit noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation at the dinner table at times.

This was the second time here for me. I was part of a large party and had a very nice experience. The scallops looked good on the menu, but the server did not know if they were dry pack / diver scallops so I decided to go with the lamb. Big chops, cooked perfectly. Servers very friendly and accommodating. Steak... More

Food was spectacular. Atmosphere was great. Service was perfect. The 5th star was reserved as the decor is tired mid-80s. Time for remodel. Perhaps a first world problem and review.

Excellent steak and seafood place. I love the atmosphere in the middle of the week even if it becomes quickly too noisy to enable serious conversations... but you're not there for that :)

Busy and classy steakhouse in the heart of Silicon Valley. Had dinner here tonight. Steaks excellent. food well prepared and hot. Good wine list (not great). Enjoyable business dinner in a pleasant bustling environment - packed on a Tuesday evening, so book ahead!

We went their once and never went back. The wait staff was arrogant, and off putting! This restaurant is in the heart of Silicon Valley, and they expected customers to make a reservation. It was so long ago that your dates info below doesn't even have our time frame. Needless to say, this establishment thinks that they are some 5... More
