For one of the busiest days in Jewelry Quarter, the Christmas light switch on this place was pretty empty. Service was pretty slow considering our table of about 20 were just ordering food. When the food did eventually arrive, it was very good.

Have been here with mates, as a couple and for a work meal and was great for all three. Nice steaks and (if they still do it) had a great weekday offer on steak and wine. Was easily able to accommodate a large group.
