This is a reliable upscale Evanston restaurant. You pay for this atmosphere and food quality, which seemed a bit expensive for what was served. We were a group of 13 back at Northwestern for our 50th reunion and it was very nice to have an...More

Highly recommended for couples, families with children, friends, etc. Perfectly cooked steak, excellent sides, and top notch service! There's a live band that plays, which makes it a fun atmosphere. This restaurant offers $9 valet parking. Also, it is wheelchair accessible.

Pretty disappointed. Dinner for two was $115 and the best thing was the wedge salad (which isn't too hard to do well). The salmon and halibut entrees were mediocre. I've had fish as good as that at Applebee's for 1/3 the price.

Attractive restaurant. Tables not too close together so you could hold a Conversation easily. Service excellent. High-quality steak and seafood. Multiple choices of additional sources for your steaks. The only thing I did not enjoy I was the key lime pie dessert.
