“Steaks great, everything else is average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere is nice business casual feel. It can get loud due to the size of the restaurant. The servers and bartenders are always nice and helpful.
Food ranges from very good to average. Every time I have had a steak here it has been expertly prepared. Expect to pay steak house prices but it is very good. Appetizers are hit and miss especially when coupled with the price. I like to come here on business and eat at the bar because the waitstaff is friendly and normally you can strike up a conversation with one of the witty locals. I would upgrade the rating if they could put more effort into the other courses.

“Overpriced! Average at best...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012 via mobile

South Beach prices for average food and a crack head server. Really, our server was doped up on something.

Shrimp dish was average. Steak was average. They were out of their gumbo.

Pass on this one next time I am in town. Should have read the reviews before chose this one.

“Uses MSG!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

This restaurant is still in the dark ages as most upscale restaurants stopped using MSG years ago. I got violently ill after we ate here due to migraine headaches caused by MSG. We called them the next day and asked if they use the product and they verified that they do.

“Good steak place - nice place for couples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Went to celebrate a birthday. We both had the New York Strip. Food was a simple preparation and the steak was of very good quality served with a single vegetable and a salad. Nice subtle grill taste. Desserts are average and can be skipped without missing much. Nice place for a couples dinner; not really a good choice for families with young children. Have a front room that can be used for parties.

“Overpriced!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Went here twice. The first time had excellent scallop appetizer. Wanted to try again. However, the second time the food was average and I got the "special" salad for the day. When we got the bill...we were charged $17.00 for the salad! It was 4 slices of tomato with cheese and a drizzle of dressing.
