“Was it a Ribeye or a strip?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

My husband ordered the ribeye with wild mushrooms. When the steak arrived it was a New York strip. The waitress agreed it appeared to be a strip. She said we would need to speak to the manager. The manager looked at it, stated it looked like a strip, went back to the kitchen, came back and said "the chef says it is a ribeye. Try it and if you don't like it we will get you another." My husband being a good sport cut the steak only to confirm it was a NY strip. The manager never returned to our table and my husband contented himself with helping me finish my filet (yes, it was a filet) because by this time at least 10 minutes had elapsed since he was served the wrong steak. The waitress was obviously sypathetic with this comedy, but her hands were tied as the manager was sticking to the ludicrous notion that the long, narrow, tough, unmarbled steak with a strip of fat down one side was a ribeye. This was the most preposterous situation I have ever experienced in a restaurant. The managers unprofessional behavior overshadowed the good service provided by our waitress and any good feelings I might have harbored for our first experience with this restaurant.
If your steaks are such poor quality that you are unable to tell the difference then you might want to have a talk with your butcher or educate your "chef". Comping a beer and a glass of wine is small comfort when one of your party is unable to eat what they ordered. We should have gone elsewhere and in future we will. Happy Anniversary to us.

“Good steaks! Good service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

We joined friends for a Saturday dinner. Restaurant was full -- with lots of energy! Steaks we ordered were large, tender, and perfectly prepared. Greek salad, in particular, was outstanding. Server took us seriously when we said we wanted to talk and to enjoy our meal slowly. Good experience all around. Good steaks & good service.

“My new favorite restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

A friend and I had dinner here recently and spent several hours lingering and catching up. Everything we had - appetizer, salad, steaks and wine - excellent! I loved the multiple filet options, the mac n cheese was great and that pretzel bread was evil. The by the glass selection was nice and the service was very attentive. Definitely my first choice on the next trip. It was a little pricey, but not unfairly so and certainly not the worst I've seen for a steakhouse.

“Great experience!”

Baker Street has the best steaks in town. The service was outstanding and our waitress was very helpful. Would definitely go back for special occasions only because the prices were a little high. Overall a great experience.
