I am a carnivore without a doubt of love steak and the Bone-In Sirloin was excellent. You might think sirloin really, but it was great. It was perfectly aged and seared to the perfect rare-mid rare. The service was excellent and they make you feel like you are one of the family. We are going to Scottsdale in April and... More

After stopping here for drinks Christmas week we went back for a "light" dinner midweek and opted for tuna and lobster ravioli. Both very good. Next--the Porter house!

We love steak and really wanted to treat ourselves .... Unfortunately this ended up being a very Very bland watery steak. Boo!!! Apart from that it was Overpriced. Would get better in supermarket. Food was below par. The atmosphere was ok but the waiters were doing everything they could to upsell which would have been ok if the food was... More

Was looking for a good steak house, and went on recommendation of Tripadvisor and Village Voice. Could not have been better. The steaks we're done to perfection, others loved the crab cakes and chicken parm. Sides very well done, small but satisfactory/sufficient wine list. Would go again in a heartbeat.

I am a Texan and so a steak is not to be taken lightly. This place went above and beyond my wildest expectations. The meals are meant to be shared, so everything from the sides to the main course are in placed in the middle. The steaks were cooked to perfection! PERFECTION. For a side, I highly recommend ordering the... More

Floor very slippy and female friend fell and staff didn't seem interested. Service was average although the waiter constantly apologised didn't up his game. Disappointed to be honest.😕

We were recommended to come here by fans of meat. Understand it was established by people who used to work with the famous Peter Luger chophouse . Our meal of the (aged) porterhouse steak for 2 was large enough for a family of 4 to feed on. I also learnt that the beauty of the porterhouse is that it married... More
