Arrived a little late and slightly flustered after 3 weeks in the US. Very cool reception, but it did improve as we spent money. Selection was good and quality also very good, enjoyed the food and would go back - maybe with long trousers, jacket and a haircut ?? 5 of us had starters, entrees and a bottle of wine,... More

I know this is a steakhouse and all, but their lobster bisque is the best lobster bisque soup I've had! They have large chunks of fresh lobster in the creamiest soup. Also, the au gratin potatoes are to die for! They're super creamy but have a thin crispy layer on top.

Had an aged sirloin for lunch last week and it was excellent. Ate at the bar and service from the two bartenders was top notch, both very friendly and always checking in with all customers. Cheesecake was also very good. Nice touch was all the phone charging wires they have available behind the bar, bartenders had several customer's phones charging... More

I came here during restaurant week with my co workers. This place is definitely fancy. I got the aged sirloin steak. It was cooked the way I wanted. My co workers said the mash potatoe is good but overall it was too buttery for me since I'm not a fan of butter. The cheesecake was delicious. I like how they... More

High class superb dining. A certainty for a splendid evening, for business, with friends or family. Accompanied with a wide wineselection, various dishes can be chosen. The tuna is out of this world. Reservation is highly advised.

My husband and I go to NYC each year and this restaurant has always been on my list. This time I made it for my birthday, 8-14. Hostess was great even though we had no reservation, she still got us seated. Food was GREAT! One of my better steaks, even when we asked for well done and it wasn't, they... More

Living off the wall st dime they bring it adequately but I've been to many similar places and if you are used to this type of formal steak house/seafood restaurant then it will be adequate. Your company may make the gig better should you do a fine business deal here but the food and wine is classic high end nyc... More

The steak (14 oz bone-in) I had was among the most tender and flavorful steak I've ever had at a restaurant. Although it was a minor miracle to eat a steak here for under $50 (thanks Restaurant Week), I'd be happy to pay regular prices for that kind of quality. Service was also prompt and efficient and the appetizer and... More

We were in group of 30 people and we had to decide main dish and desert. I tried 5 different appetizers, main was very tasty Fillet mignon, a litle bit overcooked for me. I had feeling everybody from the group was satisfied, so this is the place to have meal in this area.
