The meal I had at this restaurant is one that I will forever compare all other dinners out to. Filet mignon: amazing. Crab cakes: remarkable. Mac & Cheese: I still dream about it. Stopped here on a whim while touring colleges along the East Coast and if I ever return to Philadelphia this will be the first place I stop.... More

Beautiful atmosphere, but mediocre food. Is it still open? The last times I went by it is closed with a note on the door. They are not answering their phones and their website is down.

Went there for my husbands 35th birthday. Sat down, ordered crispy calamari, Aged NY Strip medium plus, side of potatoes, and chicken entree. Calamari arrived soon, tasted so so, pretty mediocre. The entrees arrived about 1 whole hour later! The steak was cool(not hot), it was also all soft, like it was boiled or sat somewhere under a lamp, and... More

The building is beautiful; the service was mostly wonderful. The bacon and scallops appetizer was amazing - absolutely incredible. However, the steak was far from living up to our expectations. I order fried onions on the filet, and my husband had the garlic rub on the porterhouse - both were just very dry. I would expect that from a chain... More

This place is one of our favorites in Philly. Just a gorgeous building! The steaks and seafood are equally tasty and the bar is a lot of fun!

My husband and I went there last night to celebrate a graduation. We arrived 15 minutes early for a reservation and was seated immediately. Every aspect of this visit was amazing! Our server was Colin and he was phenomenal. He knew the menu inside and out and gave us great suggestions of what to get. We had crab cakes, lobster... More

My husband and I reserved a table for 6pm on a Saturday night. It was very quiet, only 4 tables seated in the whole place, probably because most people eat dinner later, but we were going to a performance later that evening. The steakhouse itself was absolutely gorgeous, and we had a great view of the entire restaurant. As I... More

Went for restaurant week fall 2012 and it was a great choice. Everything about it was very good - food, service, atmosphere. Music was a little loud and like all bank converted buildings noise level was high. Would definitely recommend, at least for restaurant week and will definitely go again.

Went here this past week for dinner. Place was not crowded and server responded promptly. Both myself and my dining partner had the filet, It was just "average" for a restaurant that calls itself a steakhouse, Meat was a bit stringy and not all that tender. The ambience of the place is nice. One issue-- restrooms are up on the... More
