“Great Steak - Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This restaurant has a reputation as a great place. It certainly delivered the night we were there. The atmosphere is great. Our server in the bar area was excellent, though I found the dining room server to be pretty snooty and humourless.

The food a pretty pricey but that is what should be expected. Obviously, this is a place for great beef. Be aware that if you need something else or if you have dietary restrictions, you need to spend you $$$ elsewhere. One of our party had much trouble finding something she could eat. This is traditional fare.

A treat for once in awhile.

“So much promise...sadly disappointed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This restaurant would have gotten a 4 or 5 from me had I not gotten serious food poisoning from the seafood dish I ate there.
Food poisoning aside, the atmosphere was very nice, the wait staff were pleasant and helpful, and the food was good. A bit on the pricey side though. Comparable to a Keg or Milestones.

“OMG Good food, and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We took our kids here. Not the usual place to take kids, but they did offer a kids menu, and the food was FANTASTIC. I had the steak oscar. It was perfectly done, the food was quick, the service was awesome. It was a bit dark in the restaurant, so dark that you couldn't see if your steak was cooked perfectly or not. But it tasted perfect, so it made up for the darkness.

Went there for my anniversary dinner. It was really romantic, quiet and relaxing. The food was amazing and the prices were average.
You will not leave hungry!

“Nice steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

No need for a booking tonight! was answered as we called.

This large place is nicely decorated. The food served within few minutes. 

Both starters we ordered, soup and salad, were served as sides for our steaks, and not billed separately.

The sirloin was grilled perfectly. A bad note: the Utopia chocolate cake was overloaded with palm fat, it did not agree with me.

Cost for two, with a bottle of wine: $120.
