Excellent steak house!

The service and food were impeccable. The décor is lovely and overall ambiance is exquisite. So thankful we found this restaurant. The steak was a "melt in your mouth" experience. I would highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I dined here in June, 2015. Severs wear suits. The menu is a through back (and not a bad one) to the old days of hearty eating where steaks were center course. There wasn't so much as a blip. Service, food, handling...all flawless.

For the prices charged you expect a better meal. The cocktails were well made. The appetizer steak tartar was below par. No flavor. Just a chopped slab of meat. The steak (T bone) was unevenly done. They didn't have the wine we ordered so we ended up with another wine which was the same price but not very good.

Located in an old bank building both main dining room and the bar area downstairs are extremely cozy. Great seafood, steaks, and the cheesecake was some of the best I have every had. The waiter was extremely attentive and the all around service was outstanding. Great wine selection and cocktails. On the same level as any good New York City... More

Food was good. Service was barely adequate. If you're going to offer a daily special, you might be well advised to tell people it is $65. Overall, despite the fact my steak was quite good, it was not worth the price I paid. I will not be returning.

I was part of a group of 7 that dined at the restaurant the other night. It was a work dinner, a few coworkers and I took some clients out for the evening. We started in the bar, which was great-good drinks, great service. We moved upstairs at about 6:30 and that is where everything went downhill. The waiter didn't... More

We prefer to eat downstairs in the bar. The atmosphere is comfortable and Carmen and Ashley always provide excellent and personable service. The steaks are amazing, the sides are exceptional, and the Mexican chocolate mousse is the best way to complete the experience. My only regret was sharing this place with our kids. Now, they want to go with us... More

Steaks were tender and well seasoned although they were not grilled. Wine List was extensive. Service was impressive; while waiting for our first course, our waiter took us on a tour of the facility, including the lower-level bar, private dining rooms and the mine cellar and storage facility which is a not-to-be-missed highlight. Although very attentive, the waitstaff maintained their... More

Outstanding restaurant! Will return monthly. Service, hospitality, atmosphere top notch. From moment we arrived to departure, a truly warm and inviting experience. Kudos to Logan, Emmanuel, Ashley, and Carmen, et.al ... they made the evening and my wife's birthday memorable -- from the pre-dining drinks through the outstanding dinner, wine cellar tour, and post tour return to the "vault" room...
