As a vegetarian dining out with my meat-eating colleagues, I went along for the conversation and hoped for the best. There was one vegetarian main dish option, a couple of soups, and some salads that could be modified. We had a group of 10-12 and the service was professional but extremely slow. Meat-eaters reported their steaks were cooked exactly as... More

I keep coming back for their Roasted Turkey Confit with Cranberry Mayonnaise. Sweet and savory really love this one, can't wait to branch out one afternoon and try a different one. My friend said that the Sweet & Sour Sesame Chicken Salad, was one of the best salads he's had in a long time. Portions are a little on the... More

Steaks & meats from around the world ("would you like your Wagyu from Japan or Australia sir?". We hosted 20 people in the private dining room & the service was attentive, kitchen efficient and food of highest standard. Pricey to ridiculous (top end steaks over $200!) but you can order to your budget (relatively). Lovely dining spaces with booths &... More

The experience was something else. Food aside, which was amazing, our waiter good to heart the theme of our celebration: "The beauty of love!" Every word, every dish, everything was presented with a dash of love. Just awesome!

I must admit I was disappointed after reading all of the glowing reviews. It was a good steak but a long ways from being a great steak. I've had better steaks at a third the price.

The occasion was a business trip and we got invited to this terrific place by our partner company. We had a table in a very representative separate room and the service was excellent. The restaurant offers an amazing variety of steaks ranging from Argentinian prime to American / Australian / Japanese Wagyu. I had a tuna tartare to start with,... More

I was a business trip and was recommended this place to try. I wasn't disappointed! I had no booking, but I was promptly seated. I also felt a little under dressed, wearing a jacket and jeans, but it didn't seem to faze anyone so I felt comfortable and welcome. They have a great selection of steaks including a number of...

Went here as a special treat with my two sons, aged 12 and 15 - both meat eaters. The service was impeccable and the food was great from start to finish. We should not have had apps as the main course was huge. Tried the scallop apps, did not like the pickled mushrooms. Steak salad was divine as was my... More

We have lived on the east side of Lake Washington for years and it has always been a struggle to find a superior restaurant for those special events in your life (or even just for an evening of fine dining). There is always that one that starts w/ a "C" in Seattle, which has been a fixture for special dining... More
