“The absolute best Steakhouse ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

This place was perfect. Crab bisque that was to die for. Outstanding filet mignon done perfectly with a delicious cabernet reduction. The mushrooms were fabulous. The garlic mashed potatoes were great too. The beauty of the meal was the plating of the meal on a hot metal plate within a wooden charger. It kept the steak warm as you savoured every bite.Excellent very attentive staff.Loved this restaurant.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We went on a Saturday night and decided to have seafood (too many appetizers back at the hotel!) with the intention of returning Sunday for steak. Didn't learn until after dinner that this was the first "off season" weekend and the steakhouse is closed Sundays and Mondays. Bummer!

One of us got the Chilean Sea Bass and it was very good. That was the last piece so another got the waiter's suggestion of grouper. It was tasty but not worth the $45. charged. Ceasar salad was disappointing, especially for a steakhouse.

Dessert and coffee were very good. No bread was offered. I'm not sure whether I would return.

“Excellent for business or pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Enjoyed this restaurant twice was staying at the resort. Thoroughly enjoyed the service and the new menu selections. Went alone at first and enjoyed a quiet dinner and then took a work party back for a more boisterous affair. Everyone agreed the food was stellar.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

It's on the higher end -- everything is a la carte -- but at this restaurant you really do get what you pay for. The seafood is fresh -- caught/delivered that day - and the meat is USDA Prime. And the mains and sides are truly excellent. Sides are served family-style and portions are large enough to share. There's an extensive wine list, everything from $ to $$$

The service is exceptional. Waiters are very attentive and anticpate your every need.

The setting is lovely too. I've been twice and am going back again very soon.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.
