Worth the price

From the service to the quality ingredients, all added up to a great experience. The Caesar salad with added anchovies was delicious and the filet was perfectly cooked. The bone in ribeye was popular and looked great too.

Restaurant located in the heart of the Back Bay area. Very nice and competent staff. Very good salads, very good steaks, but the tuna steak was just delightful. Order it rare done!

A classic steakhouse with a good assortment of seafood. Pricey but worth it. The steaks are perfectly done and the staff has excellent recommendations. We ate upstairs and it was a very roomy table near the bar. Great windows looking out on Boylston. Staff is attentive, professional and not overbearing. They know how to handle diners here.

It's the type place for an important business meal or celebration. Manly environs with dark wooden walls and a classic bar with lots of brass. Located in the heart of Boston and seems staffed with seasoned professionals. 5 of us at the table, 3 had steaks, 1 fish and 1 lobster. All were excellent. Sides are large and well done.... More

...by both the staff and the food. High quality meal, and the waiter was fantastic. The kitchen seemed a little overwork, and one of our party of five got his steak well done, even though he had ordered it medium rare.

Had an early dinner outside. Service was great and food was good. Certainly worth stopping in if other places are too crowded but lacked a special feel to it.

My family and I wanted to enjoy a nice dinner while in Boston and we weren't disappointed! We started with the Wood Fired Bacon, which was grilled to perfection. In our party, we ordered the Bone in Prime Ribeye, the filet mignon, Wagyu Ribeye, and the swordfish steak. Nobody was disappointed. The sides we ordered which consisted of the Brussel... More

We came here to celebrate my son's recent college graduation. The food was awesome. Three of us had the filet mignon and 2 had the sirloin. The steaks were melt in your mouth delicious as they should be for almost $50 each. We had a potato au gratin side dish that I am still salivating over. The string beans and... More

Hmmmm... I still have the water runing out of my mouth everytime I think about this amazing restaurant. My wife and I took the Wagyu steak it was with almost 100 usd per stake expensive but it's all money worth it. And the waiter that stays all the time near your table but you won't notice it it's just outstanding.... More
