There has been some variance in their meat quality, especially in porterhouse, but personally their aged NY strips have been very consistent and loved them ! Also, they carry (or carried) '97 Tirant which matched well with a few different meats I have had there so far.

“Decent Steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2008

Although I would not say it is the best steak place in town, I would have to say that it was good and I liked the atmosphere. I was in town on business and had my hotel make a reservation for me. They were very accomodating for a one person diner on a Friday evening; giving me a table that had a great view of the kitchen so that I could watch the "show" as I waited for my dinner.

Atmosphere was nice; there were lots of big tables seated and they all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Loved the decor of the building - huge pillars!

Dinner was 8 oz Twin Filet Mignons and Garlic Mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes were wonderfull. Filet Mignon was okay - first 4 oz one was tender and had decent flavor. Second filet was burnt on the outside. Not great, but wasn't the worst I have ever had either.
