The place decor is a mishmash of fleur-de-lis in Turkish style and some 80's poorly constructed abstract art on the walls.

Me and my friend ordered steaks and wine. The wine arrived, and was the wrong vintage by two years, 2010 vs. 2008, which is quite significant for an Amarone. The bottle had a cork fault which the waiter recognized after us telling so. We ordered a Barolo '05 from the list, received a Barolo '08. Well, at this point I didn't feel like arguing so we took it.

Steaks were at correct grade, but a bit dry and not quite what expected. From the taste one could clearly distinct that the steak was not grilled but made on a pan. The side order gratin potatoes was a dried-out microwaved joke.

When it was time to pay, waitress brought us the check in a corny wooden box. After inserting the money, the waitress arrived, opened the box in front of us, counted the money there and asked us if the amount was ok, ie. if the rest was tips for her. How rude! You never count money in front of customer, less alone ask if the reminder is her tip. I was so baffled that I only answered ok... It was a 20% tip which I would have reduced to 10% if I had known she would be so ill-mannered.

The filet I had was perfectly done and accompanied by a flavored butter and a spicy compote on the side, both of which added to the enjoyment of the steak. The sides were similarly well prepared and very flavorful.

Excellent steaks, good wines, good address. As an American who can get Nebraska beef at home I tried a Franconian steak and it was perfectly cooked. Good presentation, good service.

I have just been on a business trip around Europe and stayed 2 nights in Erlangen near Nurenburg. We had steaks at Lennox 2 nights running. I have to say they were the best steaks I've ever eaten, even compared with the US. When anywhere near Erlangen don't miss it. By the way, it's not expensive!
