I had always wanted to try dinner at Steak Street, but just had never gotten around to it with so many other choices in the Triad. When I was planning a special night out for my boyfriend’s birthday and came across a groupon for dinner for two I thought, this is it! First and foremost, we did not have a bad experience. Our server Rob was spot on perfect, the hostess, and the server that moved us from a section we didn't want to sit in due to the volume of the live music were great too. So, A++ for service, but beyond that it just didn't live up to my expectations. And what were those you might ask? Well, I knew I might encounter just what I did from other reviews, but I tried to keep an open mind. If you typically only dine at Outback, PF Changs, etc. you may find this above par, but it is about the same as most chain restaurants (nothing wrong those usually). The table ware is the first dead give away....they were as a light as what you would find at K&W. The linens, tables, chairs, decor, etc are not fine dinning. I for some reason expected to have more of a fine dinning experience than a bistro atmosphere. I love bistros at bistro prices. Our food was O.K. I got the cowboy ribeye with very salty garlic potatoes (very very garlic”ie” mashed potatoes) and my boy friend got the prime rib. Let’s just say that nothing was bad and the onion rings were the high light of the night....sad to say this when even with a groupon for 55% off of dinner I spent $120.00! (We each had two drinks and dessert) Now that I know what to expect I can adjust my expectations for my experience. I will go back for the half price wine specials and onion rings...maybe, but definitely not for dinner. I can make a better and much cheaper steak at home.
