We went here to celebrate our anniversary. This was our second visit, and we were looking forward to returning after our great first experience here. We were seated promptly upon arrival. We had reservations at 5:30, and by 6:15 the dining room was pretty full. The noise level never got too high, and we had no problems talking during the meal.
We started with a glass of Prosecco to help celebrate. We decided to split a 24 oz. prime rib portion, and we ordered different doneness according to our taste. We also ordered a side of asparagus. The salads were nicely done, with crisp greens and tasty dressings. There was a bit too much onion flavor, but that was just personal taste. The twice-baked potato was cheesy on the top, with bacon bits inside, and browned perfectly. The prime rib was delivered hot, and each portion was done correctly, just as we had ordered. I enjoyed a glass of Duckhorn Cab with the prime rib. This was a treat for me, as it's not usually offered by the glass. The asparagus was simply steamed, with hollandaise sauce on the side, and it came across as a bit plain. I think they could have done something a little more inspired, as there are numerous asparagus recipes that would have complemented the prime rib better. We split a creme brulee for dessert, and coffee finished off the dinner.
One thing I really like is that the dinners include salad and potato. Most "steakhouses" serve everything a la carte, so when you order a steak, you get... a steak. Nothing more. I also like that the wine list has a lot of good selections at reasonable bottle prices ($40 to $60). Many other pricey places charge $60 or more for average selections ($15 at the wine store) and hundreds of dollars for the nice stuff. Why not try to sell more bottles at fair prices and have people feel they are not being ripped off?
The service was attentive, but we never felt hurried in making our selections or in eating. Water glasses were filled frequently, so we were never dry.
Tips: We had a restaurant.com $50 certificate, which cut a good chunk off the meal price, so the value was better. You will probably need to make a reservation, and may need to do this a few days in advance. When we called, the 6 to 8 pm dinner slots were full already.
