“Good night out great cocktails”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We didn't book but were welcomed and shown to a long table to check if we were happy to stay, which we did. Chic NYC type atmosphere, quite dark but it worked for us. Great cocktails, good service, food was as expected (but expensive), close to where we were staying in Soho/Central, a good night out. I wouldn't travel across town to eat here but if you're local or in the area its worth booking.

“Blue Butcher”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

My friend and I went on a Friday night and it was pretty full already by 7:30. The foods were served pretty quickly and we ordered around 3 appetizers, 3 main courses and 2 sides. The place was really lively and the atmosphere was really awesome too with the lighting and the fine details in the decoration.

Great atmosphere for either a dinner for two or with a group of people. Dim lighting was really soothing after a long days work. The food was terrific and so were the drinks. Will definitely go back there again for more food!

“Nice ambience-terrible food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a classic example of a restaurant that focuses solely on trendiness and not on its food. The place is packed with mainly young people,it does have a great atmosphere but the food is well below average. For a place with such name one does expect first class steaks perfectly cooked. Here you get neither. I am sure there are better steak places in Hong Kong.

“Mouthwatering”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Was taken here by my son who lives in HK. Atmosphere is just like a NY or Chicago steak joint. The floor manager was very helpful & charming, & went through the cocktails on offer. We opted for whisky sours (off menu, but expertly made) The rest of the staff worked diligently, but could show a little more personality!
Now on to the food. We had a selection of four starters including the quail (beautifully moist & flavorsome); the smoked beetroot, cucumber & feta salad (I loved the hazelnut vinaigrette); the fois gras & chicken liver pate (gutsy & good flavor, with an excellent onion marmalade; & the tomato, buratta salad (how does the chef get those tomatoes to taste so good?)
Next we shared the Dutch veal cheek & sweetbreads, with truffled orzo & it was mouthwateringly delicious. My son also ordered a wagyu steak. I found this a bit too fatty, but the flavor was decidedly tasty. Our sides included a scrummy cauliflower & chorizo au gratin & truffled french fries. I was too stuffed for dessert, but son pressed on & ordered an apple crumble in a cup! I was shown the wine "cellar" & very comprehensive it is too. The cold room for the meat was impressive. Altogether an excellent meal. Will go again when next in HK.

“Great if great Steak is your Desire”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Ok...we had a great night...Manager is just superb, rest of staff young and quiet...the food however was great...you must have the tomatoes with Bocconcini....if you're re looking for a very groovy restaurant in the heart of Hollywood Rd near all the bars and love Australian produce..especially various steaks and seafood..then this is great..also good for groups of 4- 10ppl.

steaks range from $50 - $100.
