Not often do these 3 come together. It has been many many years since my last visit, but we had a birthday to celebrate and decided time for a return visit. The interior has not changed still dark steak house style, but booths comfy and tables not on top of each other. We went on a week day early, but upon leaving the place was at least 2/3 full and both meeting rooms were in use.
The menu is not overwhelming in size yet has ample variety. Even a nice selection of fish entrees.
We chose the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer. Sounds pedestrian, I know. However, the scallops were so very fresh and the condiments were unique. A mango pineapple and a bacon with herbs. Lots of flavor.
I chose the night's sirloin special and my companion the naked steak. Both were included bacon whipped potatoes and an in season vegetable medley. I was glad to see the portions were reasonable, so as not to intrude on the steak experience. There was a 3 bread selection also. We had a small glitch, companion' steak a little underdone. No questions, immediately whisked back to the kitchen and returned on a new plate with all vegetables replaced and delivered by the Chef himself, who returned later to ask if all is well. Very impressive!
Despite all this wonderful food, we left room for dessert, which are prepared on site. We chose the dessert medley, 4 smaller items from dessert menu. We let our server choose. This easily could serve 3-4 people, who can enjoy a tasting. We however gobbled it up.
Our server was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and efficient. Not at all snooty, as in some more expensive restaurants. Which leads me to pricing. Not for the faint of heart. As I said, we went for a special occasion. My only thought is that there be more wine by the glass choices. But given the narrow focus of the menu, all were meant to match the menu.
My last note is that the owner was on site and stopped by our table and actually chatted. Not the usual perfunctory "is everything all right". So save your hard earned money and treat yourself..you know you deserve it!
