We shared the crab cake to start (delicious), and then each had a steak. My rib-eye was perfectly cooked and completely edible, but my husband's New York steak had a wide streak of inedible fat-and-connective tissue, which was disappointing, considering the steak prices and the restaurant's claims of quality. (He should have complained about that, but he wouldn't - too British.) Our waiter was pretty good, but tried too hard to be witty and clever, and was a bit slow once other tables started filling up.
We were more than a little surprised - though obviously not put off - by the prices. The least expensive appetizer was $8.00, and they have the cheek to charge $4.25 for a potato croquette instead of garlic mash, with your steak dinner. You're also invited to "enhance" your steak" with such things as a slab of gorgonzola ($7.00 for a bit of cheese), a side of mac and cheese ($8.00!!), or a $5.00 pot of peppercorn sauce, among others.
The prices are high, but that's really only an issue when the quality of the food brings down the perceived value-per-dollar. Were it not for the disappointing quality of the one steak we ordered, I would give this place five stars. Most of the food was really good, there was a good selection of wine, and the service was good, if somewhat self-conscious.
