“Taking a bad turn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Living in the area, we've eaten routinely here since it opened. I'm sad to say that this time, I noticed a clear deterioration in the service and a bit of a decline in the quality of the food.

Sutter Street is a challenge. On many nights activities and events draw a boisterous and eclectic crowd. It seems a byproduct of this situation is that the hostesses have become more gatekeepers than greeters. We were granted a table only after providing proof that we had the full complement of our reservation present. This is not a great way to start off a special night with friends.

Our waiter was polite but casual in a way inconsistent with fine dining. I felt like I was at Chlii's and this is no praise for that casual dining establishment.

My ribeye wasn't bad but it didn't seem to be the same quality I'd seen on previous visits. Veggies and mushrooms were tasty but quite frankly, there is no differentiation here to say, Outback.

So, next time, if we want a good steak, we'll drive further to a proper fine dining streakhouse or simply go to Outback and save the extra cost.

“Just ok, high priced.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

For a steak house I would expect the steak to be sizzling and the baked potato to be steaming. No of the above happened. Ordered medium rare basically came out rare. Beast part of the dinner was the salad. Sutter needs to kick it up a notch.

“Special Occasion Steakhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2011

The food was excellent and prepared as ordered. The atmosphere is really nice. We were a little confused with the 2 entrances. Not an inexpensive dinner, but definately a great place for special occasions.
