“Nice steak options”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Generally, the entrees are very excellent, but the soups and salads are a little lackluster. Atmosphere is a little dark, but cozy.

“ingredients and food prep have fallen off, badly.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

10 years ago, this place had great steaks, good fish specials, and tasty chicken sauces. Now it's just "blah", and I suspect that the beef is Choice (not Prime). Too much money for view.

“Good, but not exceptional for the price”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

The food was good and the service was adequate, but I'm glad we had a gift card! I've had steak dinners at other restaurants in town for much less that were just as good. However, the owner did greet us and talk to us on the way out, very friendly. It's just a little on the expensive side.

“Not worth the money.”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

For portions and quality... it's okay, but I expect something a little nicer that I can't do at home if I'm going to a steakhouse.

“Nice ambience, food is blah.”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

I love the ambiance of this place. They've done a great job of invoking the west and old Reno. Unfortunately, their food just never seems to match up. The steaks are ok (much better places in town). Last time we were there we had a cioppino that was lukewarm and pretty tasteless. Service is usually pretty nice. They just need to tweak the kitchen a bit!
