“A great steakhouse, well worth your buck”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This new little steakhouse boasts some of the best cuts I've had eaten in a while. Coupled with a warm and pleasurable service experience and a lovely atmosphere, this is most definitely one of the greatest dinning experiences in Tel Aviv. Might be considered a little expensive but when compared with other restaurants, the mere quality and quantity of the food is more than worth the expense.

“Excellent food very. Expensive”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I celebrated my birthday with the family. For starters we had soup which was delicious and lamb liver which was interesting .
For the main course I shared a 1.1 kg porterhouse steak with my son, the steak was made to order, and was really good. My wife likes her steaks well done , she got her entrecôte well done but still tender and tasty. My daughters entrecôte was not as good...the sides were also good and added a twist to the meal
We didnot order desserts nor wine , and we paid over 80$ each which is extremely expensive .
Bottom line the food is very good , but overpriced

“really?”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

NIS500.00 = salad, chopped liver starter ( both good), small steak and sides + 1 glass of wine each. Both ordered medium rare, steak came rare...must have walked the cow past the fire and zeow. Sent back but when it was brought to the table, the plates were cold. It was underseasoned but ok. not more than ok.
Partner asked for no cheese on the spinach, but was told it could not come without in spite of seeing that it was only sprinkled on top. The service simply was not up to par for an expensive restaurant--when you had them, they were very nice but getting their attention and being asked if things were ok..well, we just didn't get the service I feel should be given in ANY and especially an expensive resturant. It is ok..but for the price and the food, I won't be rushing back. There are other places that have good food , more attentive service and for a two hour lunch I paid 35.00 in an adjacent parking lot and the restaurant does not comp this Do not compare this to NY as seen in reviews..it will not hold up.

“A good Steakhouse in Tel Aviv (but expensive)”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Convenient location with parking near-by
On a weekday evening, the restaurant was not full
Simple decor, no tablecloth
Sitting comfort: average
Atmosphere: nothing to write home about
Efficient and friendly service, however, little rushed service
The Steaks and side orders were very tasty and served very hot (finally a restaurant that warms the plates!)
Expensive
At this level, I was expecting more.

“Seems promising, but we have to come again.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

We came with a coupon. That should explain the fact that we were not treated with their own aged meat from the Golan Heights. So let's forget the main dishes.
The first course options included a meat carpaccio and health salad. Both were absolutely superb. The wine was a good white Chablis. As dessert we decided to take the Streusel, but that was not such a good choice in hindsight. No problem in changing it to a simple but delicious vanilla ice cream with hot, strong espresso poured over it.
The place has ambiance and nice techno music in the background.
What did however hinder was the big kitchen opening which caused for those sitting in the back an ugly glare from the bright fluorescent light fixtures in the kitchen.
To be fair and be able to taste the real McCoy meat of the place, we have to come back and order a standard dinner at "regular" prices…
