Ate at the Rexdale, ON location (near Pearson airport). Was told 30 minute wait, but was seating just under an hour. The manager came to our table (unannounced), acknowledged we waited beyond the time we were told, and comped free dessert. Unexpected, and a nice touch.

This is one busy steakhouse, but the atmosphere is still dark enough to feel private. Menu options were many, and were priced above average, but not ridiculous like some chop house prices. My colleagues had sirloins covered in seafood and other sauces. The both looked great. But I got the grilled 8oz. sirloin, plain and simple. And it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten!

A very nice place to take customers, family or friends. Reservations recommended! Would definitely visit one again on my next visit to Toronto.

I have been here now 4 times, so this review is a summary of those experiences.
The restaurant has always had consistently good service and food. It is a pretty large place, but you will find during most dinner hours a wait. You can make a reservation for lunch, but you have to get your name onto the list and wait for dinner.

Service in the bar while you wait is usually pretty good, and they are always showing a game or two on the tv's. If you want, you can have dinner in the bar, and if you're lucky, there are tables that make it a bit more comfortable than the bar stools.

For the food, the menu is pretty extensive. For starters, we've enjoyed the bruschetta, calamari, and the crab cakes. If you like salads, their iceberg wedge and classic caesar are very good. You can also add steak, chicken, or shrimp and make a salad a light meal.

For the main course, you have to have the steaks. The NY and the sirloins are aged and tasty. I like the peppercorn New York, and others in my group enjoyed the bleu cheese fillets. Prime rib is good, but not up to par with the other meats as it lacks that traditional (IMHO) seasoning. My one disappointment in the menu is that they don't offer a pork chop.

They have a good wine list, with selections from the more popular places. If you're going to order a higher end wine, make sure to ask about the vintage. I find that they don't sit on wine that long, so you'll most likely get a young wine and will need it to open up. I don't think wine is their thing, as most servers didn't know any of the vintages and had to make several trips to the bar/wine cage.

All in all, if you're staying near the airport, this is a very good choice for a group up to 6 people. I think they would accommodate larger parties, but without reservations, I think it would be tough.
