“Great Atmosphere-An Enjoyable Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

The four of us went there last Friday night. Everyone has different taste, but one thing I really like about this place is the sort of "dark wood" ambiance. Although the restaurant is large, the dark wood paneling accented by lighted paintings and small lights on each table is very pleasant.The service was fine but not exceptional, sometimes a tad on the slow side.

The portion sizes here are big. Two of us shared a smoked salmon appetizer (at $15), and we were glad we split it. Another one of us had the Ceasar salad (at $10), and this person, who loves to order this item, pronounced it one of the best he had ever had. I tasted a bit of it, and the dressing was, in fact, very good. The other member of our party had the traditional "wedge," (at $11) and raved about it.

The steaks came, and these things were huge. Three of us had the bone in sirloins, which were recommended by the server as better than the other beef dishes.(They were $46).The server told us that although normally the place serves 21 day dry aged sirloins, that night, the steaks were aged 36 days. The other person had the sole (at $39) and liked it. Although the steaks the three of us had were the same, the seasoning was not. One of us had the Kona Crusted sirloin (which I have had before) and it is really good. Two of us had the Porcini rubbed Delmonico with 12-Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar.Next time I'll stick with the Kona Crusted version (I had them do this crust on a filet last time and enjoyed that).

As sides, we shared truffled fries (at $10), creamed spinach (at $10) and Sam's Mashed potatoes (at $9). All were good, but nothing exceptional. I've had just as good if not better versions and quite a few other places. Depending on you appetite and dessert plans, I suggest one appetizer for every two people.

Drinks are the usual in a place like this: $10-14. A modest but tasty Chardonnay came in at $13 a glass; don't miss the Irish Coffees at the end of the meal if you favor them; these were quite good.

Food was about $60 per person, plus tax and tip.

All in all, I like the atmosphere and ambiance here much better than the modernist one at Cut or Flemings in Beverly Hills; this is a bit more formal than the Palm and much nicer than Ruth's Chris. The best steak deal in town is still Taylor's (more dowdy than these, but the steak is just about as good and a lot less expensive).We'll be back, but won't rush.

“Great Food...Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We visited here recently with family to celebrate a birthday and graduation. There were 10 of us and we were given a private room. The food was pricey and all ala carte but we easily shared side dishes. The wine list was also very good. We had teenagers with us and they were very comfortable and satisfied. Service was exceptional.

“Simply OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Went for lunch on mother's day. As we entered we noticed they had a brunch, not mentioned when we made the reservation. We got there at 2:30 pm and asked if we could order from the regular menu. Which we were able to do. We had Filet mignon, Pepper Crusted Sirloin Steak, Parmissan Crusted Sole and a Kid's Burger. The food was great, but maybe because of the location and the date, the dress code left something to be desired. The service was fine, but by thevtime we were finishing, they started to preparecthe restaurant for dinner, something I did not appreciate.

“Good steak.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice atmosphere, convenient location. Aged house steak had too much butter (and a bit fatty for my taste). Service is very good. Piped in music can be a little loud.

“Excellent dining at affordable price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Really enjoyed our dining experience in this restaurant, white crisp table cloth, nice waiter, good food and great ample ambience. Form the moment we stepped in, we knew we would enjoy it. The bread and biscuit basket is delicious! The food really tasty and good, lots of no one space around and mood lighting. Walked here form the Sofitel about 1 block. Good wine list too. Would go back for sure!
Request a table away from the noisy kitchen!
