You can only get the steaks seared, so that there's charbroil on the exterior. I'm not fond of the taste of charcoal on my steak. The sides were all very good. The dessert was a let down. It seem that the deserts were all about the presentation. They looked oversized and delicious when I saw them served to the other tables, but I didn't find them fulfilling. I was there with a business group, so there was a lot on the table to sample. Frankly, all around, I've had better. This was not the end all steak place. Last note - the service was fantastic.
