We went here for lunch. It is a charming restaurant but not much else is near it. We had a reservation and were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival.
CAUTION: This is a CASH ONLY restaurant. I am flabbergasted that such famous, touristy spots do this as there were many disgruntled patrons, including one man that was quite verbal about this even though they had signs posted telling you this.
Service was mediocre. We got drinks and rolls immediately and the salt sticks were great. However, we then played the waiting game for our order to be taken and to be served. Our waiter seemed to go through the motions of serving us instead of trying to create a positive dining experience.
We ordered a steak and prime rib. Both were wonderful but the prime rib came with a skinless boiled potato that I shared as the steak had nothing else served with it. The sauce to put on the steak was awesome.
If I want a really, really good steak, I would return here. But I would go knowing not to expect anything else except for high prices. I prefer a better atmosphere and more caring staff to add to my dining pleasure.
