“Good Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Not the greatest restaurant in the world but it is one of the best chains I have been to. The steak was extremely well cooked and the place was nice enough. If you are in Washington and just want a simple well-cooked (a bit over priced) steak this is the place to go.

“Best Meal of My LIFE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I visited this location nearly 4 months ago and I still fantasize about my meal here. I travel for work frequently and eat at tons of different places. This was the best meal of my life. The filet mignon, mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach. UNREAL! The homemade cheesecake is also unlike anything I've ever had before. The cocktails! Don't even get me started there. They're made out of whatever is above the top shelf. Excellent. All of it. It will cost you though. A single person could have a hard time getting out under $100.

“Great, but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Went here for a birthday party. Great food, but seemed over priced for what you received. The creamed spinach is to die for, and probably most certainly will help kill you, but so wonderful! If you are not into steaks, this clearly isn't your place. Although, they do have options for vegetarians, or if you only eat fish.

“awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

it has been awhile since I was in this location so perhaps they have improved, but: if you are looking for good food, go elsewhere. you will be brought a place of food swimming in butter that spatters all over your clothes. Want atmosphenre - go elsewhere. Despite the view, we were joined in the dining room by a family in shorts, wife beaters and flip flops. No thanks.
