It was a really good experience, fresh product well prepared. Even desserts were excellent. Deco could be worked to be warmer, but we had a good time overall.

Oh my, the whole experience was great. This is hidden within the busy 9th Street area. So you get here and it is this place that looks like home. Done very well. Service was great. The menu was great. The skirt steak was top of the line. Very good wine list. Nothing bad to say. Go eat great steak.

While nothing special, this restaurant has a good steak and pleasant service. For the money, I suggest Vin Rouge down the street. Excellent.

This is what a steak restaurant should be! Good atmosphere--not too casual or too pretentious, great bar, good desserts, and the steak...wow! Perfectly seasoned and absolutely delicious! Also need to mention the well-trained wait staff--friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a great steak, go here!

Came here for a birthday dinner, and was extremely happy with the experience. Got the chorizo for an app and the churrasco on recommendation, and both were fantastic. The dipping sauce might have been a bit high in the garlic, though I love garlic. Steak was flavorful, cooked to order, and included more of the delightful garlic dipping sauce. We... More

This restaurant has the best steaks in all of the triangle. But the most unique is their Churasco steak. And then I cannot say enough about the waitstaff and Cassie (?) the owner. The warm welcome, the flawless food, the kind waitstaff, the gorgeous atmosphere all combine for the best dining experience I've had in months!
