Ambiance like no other in the city. A totally adult restaurant with food, service, and live music to match. The signature prime rib is without peer.

The service and food are amazing! From the time we were greeted at the door to being seated. The piano player was a bonus. Friends gathered for their extended Restaurant Week menu but i ended up ordering from the regular menu. Worth every cent!

Went for restaurant week and the food was just ok. The dessert was the best part of the meal. Wish that would have come out first.

Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.
