“Very overrated, very poor service, terrible”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Just been to the restaurant - terribly disappointed - food was good, but really felt the service and general ambiance did not justify the extortionate prices. We arrived at 730pm, ordered by 740pm...appetiser arrived approximately 2-3 mins after ordering, our food felt rushed, meal completely over in 45 mins - all for the price of $170 WITHOUT wine. We did order beer, however took them 25 mins to deliver to the table, just in time for our main course. Staff very officious, didn't smile once during the entire express meal - except when handing the bill.
Would not recommend this at all, unless you want an expensive McDonald's fast food experience - even they smile. This was a special evening for us to celebrate our anniversary - we will not ever go to this cheap fast food joint again,

“Expensive and old school - good service”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The steak is excellent but it's expensive. The sides that came with the steak seem to date from the 70's - sauteed mushrooms were tasteless and the creamed spinach were as described. It's the typical dark lit steak restaurant. The service was excellent though - you are taken care of. Perfect to take an elderly parent for a treat but I would not take my wife, friends or colleagues. Too many other better spots to go to.

“OK”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

In the Hilton Hotel. Food is good but I would prefer going to Hy's as they have similar price points.
