We were drawn by the sparkling elegant restaurant decor and tried their prime rib and mango flambe on date night. As much as we wanted to like the food, the steak was lacking in juiciness and a bit tough to chew. The flambe, which was cooked tableside, started as a comedy errors when it took 3 waiters to turn on the stove. Eventhough we were only two set of customers at that time and were seated near the bar, service didn't come on raised hands and needed to call "Waiter" out loud. Maybe because the restaurant was new on our first visit, but we will definitely put off coming back and giving it a second try for at least a year.
