The service was great, but for the style of restaurant, we expected more class than the Asian LOUD band provided. Food was good, but the prime rib could have been more than lukewarm. Mashed potatoes were great, but the veggies were really hard. And to...More

Red velvet wallpaper, red leatherette banquettes, photos of Hollywood stars of the past on the walls. Live music, good martinis, and really excellent steak, served by a competent, knowledgeable server. What you see is what you get here and if you want some retro ambiance...More

The food is outstanding every time we go there. The service is also great. A wonderful experience. The prime rib is especially good; as is the onion soup with tons of motserilla cheese.
