“Over priced, nothing thrilling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I went with a $50 gift certificate, so we purposely splurged. We each had a drink or two. Ordered 2 appetizers; stuffed peppers & stuffed mushrooms, which were both pretty greasy. We also each got a meal. Our steaks were cooked to our liking, but flavor wise weren't all that special. I got surf and turf. The lobster was TINY and over cooked. We left full, but overall not thrilled with the food. Even less thrilled with the fact that the bill was over $125 not counting the $50 certificate. It was by no means a meal worth $175.
Also, the atmosphere needs work. It felt dingy & we were pretty much shoved in a corner next to a family who spent most of dinner yelling at each other. The place was empty. They could easily have sat us in the back dining area and away from the mother accusing her husband of cheating and yelling at her kids about it. I know they can't help who comes in, but come on..

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went here over the past weekend, we arrived on a sunday around 4pm, were seated quickly and ordered almost immediately. We ordered the mushroom caps and zucchini for apps, the french onion soup and the italian steak and crab cakes, everything was delicious. The prices were fair, higher than a chain but less than a ruth chris and mortons, it was small but very comfortable, more casual than the pricier steak houses, but we werent looking for bells and whistles we wanted a better than nice place and good meals and we got them both.

The food, service and atmosphere are always great. One of Pittsburghs best, and no one is better, with a good selection.

“BEST STEAKS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sometimes the restaurants' speciality isn't always delicious, but in this case IT IS! Everyone's steaks were done to perfection, were juicy and delicious.

The waitress was prompt and friendly eventhough the restaurant was packed.

We met the owners on our way out and they both were delightful, which added to our positive experience.

We will definetly be back and are now talking about holding a large family event there.

“Nice experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Had a nice date night here- we both got Daily specials with cheddar potatoes and Caesar salads, and it was a nice time. Wine, service and atmosphere all to my liking. This is more of a casual steakhouse.
