Repeat visitors to Coral Gables and we wanted to try another steak house. After reading reviews of Christy's, it sounded perfect. I made my reservation via open table and requested a table away from the front door. I was accomodated.
Very professional wait staff was knowledgeavble and attentive without being pushy. WIne list is good, though beware that vintages on the list are not up to date. We ordered a wine that was listed at 2007 and got a 2009. Hmmm.... seems easy enough to update.
Shrimp cocktail is to die for - colossal shrimp presented in a traditional dish with fresh cocktail sauce. Each dinner includes salad - the caesar was perfectly dresses, and the waiter was sure to inquire in advance if we wanted anchovies.
Steak was perfectly done with au povie sauce on the side. Dessert as well as coffee and tea capped off the night. Near as perfect a steak house experience as exists.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated with dimmed lighting and pressed tin ceiling. What's not to like?
