Bring your big bank account to pay for this steak

The steak I had was cooked as I had requested, which was close to "blue". The service was good but at times slow, due to the full establishment. I am a big steak person and this restaurant has very good meat and their cooks are spot on. Unfortunately, for me, anyway, their prices are above my... read more

Went there during the US Open for a guy's night out. Great service, good appetizers, and the made-at-the-table caeser salad was great. Ordered the 42 day aged ribeye and came out perfectly cooked, but no flavor. Pretty dry as well. I've had better for half the cost. Didn't even finish it On a great note, John Howie came out to...

You get what you pay for here. Our server Chris F was on point! He was attentive, knowledgeable, and seemed to like his job. Obviously, this is a high-end Steak Restaurant so the pricing is on the higher end, however as I mentioned above....you get what you pay for here. The sides were fantastic and the Meat was cooked as... More

My first time, but not the last. My steak was perfect, with sides of roasted corn and potato cakes, and brussel sprouts. Bypass the sprouts, not as good as everything else. Great service, knowledgeable with out condescending attitude. Expensive, worth the money.

This, in my opinion, is the best steakhouse in the Seattle area. Not only are the steaks excellent, the sides and desserts are among the best I've had anywhere. For meats, they generally offer choices of various levels of wagyu blends, though this changes over time (I've been 3 times for dinner and once for just dessert). If you order... More

We planned a family private room event and while cordial, it was all about the extra fees, service charges etc. we were forced to get everyone to pre-order in advance, then told once we got there, to order from the menu. The menu is different than the event menu, so start over. Service was superb, the attention to detail was... More
