“Good little steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Very limited menu, but the things they do have are prepared masterfully. Typical nice steakhouse pricing, so don't expect a bargain and be aware of the dresscode. No jeans and shirts must be collared (last I heard)

“Good food, OK service, dishonest management.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2010

We ate here the night before Valentine's Day. The salad mix was obviously from a bag but the steaks were delicious. However, we were floored when we were charged $4 for a 6 ounce Sprite and another $4 for a refill. When we brought it up to the waitress, she said that's what the prices were that night and sodas were usually $2.50. We spoke with the very unapologetic manager who blatantly lied and said they were $4 every night. He went on and on about how it was a "white tablecloth" restaurant and they had to charge what they did. I've eaten in many "white tablecloth" places and never paid $4 for a measly Sprite. I'm sure their mix is the same as the Mexican joint next door. As for atmosphere, the place hasn't been redecorated in decades. A little freshening up would do wonders. But that's a moot point- you won't find me there ever again.
