The steak is excellent as it should be at a steakhouse of this caliber.
In other similar establishments the staff act like they're not working for you. Rather you're in a barter, steak for cash, so you're equally serving them.
What's unique about Donovan's is the wait staff is more hospitable, making you feel comfortable and catered to which is a courtesy common in your average sit down restaurant but absent in most fancy ones.
