Great Food and Atmosphere!

Great place to have a special dinner out with friends or date night. Steaks are cooked perfectly and the kona rub adds an exceptional taste.

The ambiance is wonderful and compliments to the chef for a wonderful dinner, we had the Chelean Bass and the scallops were both outstanding. Our server Terry was outstanding. Thank you for a great evening, a must visit again.

I was here recently for a business dinner. We had a separate small room for our party of 8. Very good service, good wine list. The steaks are always great.

Superb food and wine - though not cheap (11$ glass of cheapest red on list, great Zinfandel but these are Norwegian level prices!). I can really recommend the Lamb Lollipos ate the bar 4 fabulous lamb chops, get with the Parmesan and truffle fries

Little bit pricey but quality was excellent. All steaks cooked to perfection and side plates were also very good. Would recommend for the steak. Didn't need starter and no room for desert.

This is a high end steak place similar to Ruth Crist, Flemings, Mortons and the like. Service and food quality was top notch. I had a strip steak au pouvre and it was perhaps the best steak I've had in quite some time. Everything is ala carte and it is pricey. That was expected.

We have visited this restaurant several times with friends and business associates. Modern, pleasant interior, friendly, efficient waitstaff. A full bar with an excellent bartender provides a good start. The place focuses on red meat and does it very well. The sides are satisfying and the wine list, while not extensive, covers all the basis. You can't go wrong by... More
