I've eaten here before and tonight was terrible. Food was mediocre at best. Our waiter was not engaged and totally distant. Steaks weren't what I remember and all in all I won't be back. I am a generous tipper and tonight I was Scrooge total disappointment in our meal and the atmosphere.

..... you have to go here hungry to fully appreciate the menu and the LARGE portions. Very traditional steak house comfy, male library style. A bit loud and full on the Friday night but service was excellent. The steaks were fabulous, the filet hamburger too - not a big fan of the french fries as I like crispy fries. Excellent... More

Went there as 3 couples for my birthday .... Service was excellent, food was outstanding. The portions are so large all 3 couples shared a single steak each and 2 sides each - the steak was cooked to each couples preference. Quirky wine list on an iPad, very interesting. If you like steak this is a must - don't miss... More

Had the Onion Soup and then the Gotham Rib Steak, which was delicious, and cooked exactly how I asked. Was impressed that they mixed up some English Mustard for me. Only downer for me was that it was incredibly noisy.

A very traditional house. Beautiful interior, with friendly staff. It is indeed a bit pricey, but worth every penny! They have delicious hamburgers. I had a kobe beef burger, cooked to perfection! The french fries are one of the best I have tried! If you are in for a meat treat, this place is more than adequate!

We went here for my son's birthday dinner at the recommendation of a friend. The meat was perfect, huge portions. The venue has a really great ambience. The service was impeccable as were the voices of the waiting staff who sang happy birthday. I read a few reviews on TripAdvisor before going which were less than great, but those concerns... More
