Very good food, very expensive

Consistently good food and wait staff, very nice atmosphere. Considering you have to pay for everything separately it really adds up. Make it a special occasion it is worth it.

Hands down one of the best places in Queens to go for a great steak dinner. Top notch service, Mike had a great sense of humor, answered any questions on the menu, Must of called Heather and Sam about 6 times in 2 weeks to change the reservations, and they were so professional and understanding.
